Those are beautiful Jordan. I also really like the lightening photo by cputeq and #3 above by Bob.

On a day trip some weeks ago we came across this abandoned house (X-A1 with XF 14mm):

Got a chance to actually go out and shoot this morning. Got up early and went to some spots I hadn't been before. I got to Conkle's Hollow just after sunrise, though by the time I got to Rock Bridge, the sun was high and the light somewhat harsh. I planned on HDR for all the Rock Bridge shots, and was amazed to discover that I actually had enough detail in the middle shots to get the whole dynamic range, so didn't end up using the HDR shots.

Anyway:

Conkle's Hollow:
18-55mm f/2.8-4:












55-200mm f/3.5-4.8:












Rock Bridge (all with the 14mm):

I'm very close to pulling the trigger on an XE-2 and taking advantage of the current promotion here in the UK to also get the 35mm f1.4 lens. Where I'm hesitating I guess is with the rangefinder style. Have any of you had difficulties adjusting to this layout coming from traditional DSLR styled cameras? Do you feel you are giving anything up in usability between the XE-2 and X-T1, and is it worth investing in one of the handgrips?

Any views most appreciated.

Cheers,

Simon.

I haven't used the XE2 but the XE1 is about the same body. No real issues for me personally, but I'm pretty flexible. I guess if you were using longer lenses, you'd want more of a grip, but I used my XE1 with the 18-55 and 35 lenses just fine.

I was actually pretty close to getting the XE2 instead of the XT1, but I really need a swivel LCD for my shooting so I went XT1.

I like the rangefinder style, as it fits in my bag better. I don't feel I'm really giving up too much in usability between the E2 and the X-T1, though I am planning on adding an X-T1 to my kit in the coming months. The biggest differences (aside from the ISO dial) are the viewfinder and the tilt screen. The viewfinder on the X-T1 is really just spectacular. The X-E2's is good, especially with the latest firmware, which gives it the same responsiveness as the X-T1's, but it's noticeably smaller. The tilt screen can also come in handy for low to the ground shooting.

I did find the X-T1's grip to be very comfortable, and it's very solid as well. The X-E2 works just fine with the smaller lenses, though the grip can be less than comfortable with bigger glass on it. If you prefer a bit more of a chunky feel, the MHG-XE grip is worth it, especially if you use Arca-Swiss style tripod heads, as it has an integral dovetail. I don't recommend the original hand grip, as you can't access the battery/card door when it's mounted. The new MHG is more sturdy, lower in profile, has access to the battery door and that built in dovetail, so I think it's well worth the slightly higher cost. I never really used my original grip unless I was going to be shooting a lot with the 55-200. Since getting the MHG, though, it really hasn't ever left my X-E2.

Thanks for the reply Jman. I've handled both cameras so know exactly what you mean about the X-T1 EVF.

The promotion in the UK allows a choice between the 18, 27 and 35mm lenses. Do you have any experience with them? The speed and focal length of the 35mm appeal, but not if it isn't a strong performer!

To begin with, and until I build my AF lenses up, I'll most likely use my Canon FD lenses with the X-E2. The grip may be a good idea for my 135 and 200mm lenses to help with balance.

Finally, the eye cup on the X-E2 doesn't look too deep. Have you had any problems with stray light in bright sunshine?

Cheers,

Simon.

Do it!
I waited and waited, until last year and got my X-E1 kit.
I love it, STILL!
I come from Canon DSLRs, I still have my faithful 5DMkII, though, hardly use it anymore...

After re-evaluating Irident, I must say it's quite superior to Lightroom when it comes to rendering high-detail stuff, either close or far away.

I plan on hopefully, hopefully making a large post on my web site soon in evaluating both programs, in both image detail, ease of use, and other operations. Maybe I'll throw PhotoNinja into the mix, but since it won't let me export an image without buying a license, I might be limited on that.

The PhotoNinja guys will gladly send you an evaluation key. Maybe a second for your purposes if you're already gotten one from them.

Yeah I've burned through my first eval, I might ask for a second two-week trial.
