Yea, I'm sure at some point I'll get the camera and the 18/2 prime, but really with the ISO on the X-Pro1 and the quality of the zoom at 18mm, it seems like as long as i don't mind the size and marginal light gathering difference, the zoom seems pretty exceptional. I have a shop holding on to the XE-1 and the zoom kit and I'm thinking I might buy it and sell the camera. I wish I could keep both the lens and the body but it's just not in the budget atm. Thoughts anyone?


If you don't use the OVF on the Xpro1, I say dump that body and keep the XE1. So much smaller than the Xpro1 and the button layout seems better IMO. What I really wish is that they would put the lens release button on the correct side like other makers If you use the OVF, I would say just hold off and wait for a zoom to be sold second hand for cheaper than retail. People are so jaded by the haters out there on Fuji right now that its hard to sell anything Fuji without taking a big hit. I say hold off if you don't feel the love on the XE1 body and pick up the zoom cheap ($500-$600) within the next month or so when the market gets saturated with them.

Chris, I love that Tokyo image (I lived there for four years exactly, a long time ago!). It captures a mood beautifully.

Tough question guys. Buy the 18/2 and hope the XE-1 drops after the new years or just take advantage of the $1,400 deal and get the XE-1 & zoom instead? I usually don't shoot zooms, but it seems pretty awesome. Thoughts?

Brody,
Option 3: Get the Xe-1 with the 18mm f/2 as a kit for $1360 off of ebay (through tdimension). I bought my kit with the 35mm from them. They overnighted it from Hong Kong! Import duties were only $14, so definitely still the cheapest way of doing it. I personally think the 18mm is worth it simply because of the shallower depth of field and size. (It'll be the next lens I get for my Xe-1).

Jojo, that photo of the leaves is just gorgeous! Crazy to see that coming from a "kit zoom". haha

How was this B/W processed? This photo has it all: composition,lighting,subject matter. Straight out of the 50's .Simply great.

Thanks Alan and doowop42.
Doowop42, for this one I used the jpeg which I converted to B&W in Lightroom.

JochenB, Love the processing like doowop said! Never tried to do the conversion in LR as I have Siler Efex Pro2 but may have to try this as one thing I've noticed with SEP2 is that my files always come out too contrasty and gritty compared to how clean yours looks.

Alan,

Love the colors - nice work! Terrific 3D in the first photo - looks like you know how to use that 18mm!

Alan, I definitely agree with Rick here, excellent work! Really excellent hdr conversion too!

Now for one of my own (Calling it Tower of the Sun)
...A shot that somehow miraculously worked out. Saw the tower coming up along the highway, so I flipped everything into auto, and after two or so tries, I got this shot. Crazy how sharp the the 35mm is even at 2.5! Any softness is more likely to be motion blur than the actual resolution of the lens...

New user here!

I am Joćo from Portugal. I bought X-E1+18-55+35(used)+60(used) on a very good deal.

I am also a NEX and Oly DSLR shooter. I photograph mostly on my holidays.

Only had the Fuji since last thursday, so I only shot a university xmas dinner with it.

I am very happy with the handling and IQ.

Only negative is focusing in low light, but still is faster than my NEX+Voigtlander combination !

Here is a heavily PPed portrait with LR4 and Nik Silver Efex from the dinner party.

Thanks for looking and I hope to contribute to this thread often!

Jochen, I just LOVE the alleyway image; I agree with the others re. composition and the conversion is perfect for the subject.

Great work.
