Very nice set, Helena!
Regarding the missing "starbursts": it's probably more related to lens- or aperture-blade-design, as I've never seen really nice starbursts with Fujinon-XF-lenses. A former poster at this thread (sorry, don't recall his name, he posted mainly night-scenes in B&W, many with very distinct stars) wrote here once he'd choose the Voigtlaender 15mm over the XF14/2.8 because of the starbursts he got with the Voigtlaender.
Most of my manual focus Nikkor-lenses will show starburst's at command, no luck with the XF-optics so far ;-)
Thank you! That sounds likely. I remember that was a bit difficult to do starbursts with X-E1 (same lens), but it didn't seem nearly as hard as this and I never noticed any ugly "flare blobs" either. Maybe it's just that I haven't been in exactly the same light situations yet, or else the lens coating on X-A1 is different and causes some internal reflections. Or perhaps a little of both.
Anyway, overall I'm very happy with the Fuji gear and the colors are just lovely. Now when we have the profiles in Lightroom it's even better.
