One from a while back, just to remind myself that I need to pickup my X-E1 a bit more. Haven't used it a lot lately







Geez Louise, with that motivation, I'd be shooting hourly!

Hey now that the x100s is x-trans, and the x100/100s thread gets little attention, perhaps I can come and play in here?


I'm pretty sure we had this discussion back when the X100s was released-- and the overall consensus was to maintain this thread as only for interchangeable, X-Trans cameras. So the decision was no X100s, even though it has the same/similar sensor.

I'm personally happy to revisit the suggestion if others are. I still tend to favor the idea of keeping the X100s to its own thread though. After all, there is an X100s/X100 thread already, so it's going to get confusing and perhaps encourage cross-posting, and given the title of this thread people are going to be coming here to see images from X-E1s/X-Pro1s.

But I'm happy to go with what everyone else suggests.

Spent a very nice long weekend at a couple of islands outside of Trondheim. X-E1 and Fuji 14mm:

I am cross posting this from the Leica R thread. Here are a series of photos that I took the evening of July 26, 2013 in Magic Hour over quite some distance from hill to hill (1/2 mile or more) from the Trexler Nature Preserve Environmental Center, Schnecksville, PA. Images taken with my tripod mounted Leica 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my Fujifilm X-E1 camera. Additionally, the first 3 images taken with Leica 2X Apo Extender and at f16. The 4th image was used with the Leica 1.4X Apo Extender and at f11. Images processed in LR5.

Either way. Totally understand keeping this thread as just xpro/xe1, lenses are a totally different ballgame. I'll do my best to keep the other thread alive.

Helena, every time I see your work it just makes me excited. I love your eye for capturing your surroundings, and it's clear you're putting that 14mm to good use!

It's definitely on my want list.

Thank you Abram! The 14mm is fantastic.

Your work (and some others') makes the 35mm very tempting... but I have never gotten along well with that focal length, so I'll try and resist. Also, the Fuji was only meant to tide me over while waiting for a relatively small FF camera, so I don't want to "invest" too much. However, I'm much happier with it than I thought I'd be, so it doesn't really feel like a temporary solution any more... We'll see.

I would like to see a full frame mirrorless camera option, but I worry that the lenses will be humongous. I'm quite fond of the size of the X-Pro 1 and the focal lengths available are perfect for how I shoot personally. I just have the 18 and 35mm lenses (with an adapted Pentax 50mm I use on occasion now), and it works great for me. The 35 is a gem really, I got to know it really well on my trip and I definitely think it's a worthy lens for this system.

50mm can be a boring focal length to some, but I actually do like it quite a bit. 28/35/50mm are my favorite focal lengths for "rangefinder-style" shooting (based on my past experience with 35mm rangefinder cameras).

Yes, the lens size is what is worrying me too. The kit I have now (RX1, X-E1 with the 14mm and 55-200mm) is perfect for what I shoot. The size/weight is so nice compared to the Canon gear I used to have, and image quality is more than good enough for me, so I hope I can resist replacing it once a FF mirrorless is out. If I still feel this good about my Fuji gear when the 56/1.2 is released I'll probably buy one.

It's interesting how some people prefer 35mm and others 50mm. I have always been a 35mm person, but a friend simply can't enjoy it and always goes for 50mm.


Another from the weekend trip. X-E1 + Fuji 14mm as usual.

HelenaN your images are really great; but is it my imagination or does this last one have a greenish tint ?

Thank you! Yes, a green and blue tint. It was grayish because of fog in the background, so I decided to play with split toning in Lightroom, but I see now that I overdid it, so I have replaced the photo with one with a bit less toning.

Can I ask a question in between your intriguing images?

Did the firmware update get focus peaking to the X-E1 also or just to the X-Pro 1?
Sorry, it sure is mentioned somewhere in the thread but I am not through yet.

Yes, the X-E1 has focus peaking now (and much better AF...)

Had to "cheat" on my Fuji setup and finally get a second lens for my 5D3 -- 17-40L. I mean, for $550 shipped, being only a few months old (reputable seller), I just couldn't pass it up.

I've been really impressed with the 14mm, and I might still get it, but I can't shake the feeling I just like my 5D3 landscape shots better. The 'watercolor' effect on my XE1 is what pushed me to get the 17-40L (and the low price and the fact it'll use my B&W 77mm CPL)- I process the files carefully to mostly avoid exacerbating the issue, but when I'm going for as detailed as a scene as I can get, I seem to bump up against the 'watercolor' somewhat.

So, hopefully the 17-40L is a good copy. I may give the 14mm a rental and check it out -- I'm really curious to see if a pretty good zoom with a 22MP FF performs against a 16MP Xtrans with a very sharp 14mm, especially in fine foliage detail.

I have a lot of 17-40L images where the corners and edges of the frame might charitably be described in the same terms... hopefully your copy is better.

The corners of my XF 14/2.8 R on X-Pro 1 are a lot better than was my EF 17-40L on 1DsIII.

That has been my experience as well with the 5DmII and the 17-40mm. The Fuji is tack sharp.

cputeq, I still use my 77mm cpl and B+W ND filters with my Fuji setup, just use step up rings, they are also let me use my Lee filters as well, a bit of overkill but it does work just fine.

ah, good news, thank you.

Has anyone tried long manual lenses with the focus peaking? like 300-400mm?
