Welcome Sceptic! Interesting shots with your Vivitar, especially #2. I used to have that lens for my Nikon D7000 and it renders exactly the same on that camera (in fact, I have or had a *very* similar shot of the same type of flower as you posted) Your flowers had a "look" to them hard to describe, and I wasn't surprised at all when I saw the lens!

Thank you! Yes, it truly is as good as the online reviews make it out to be. The combination of sharpness and smooth bokeh is hard not to like; tank-like build is just icing on the cake.

I love how that little hand is stretching up and grabbing the ledge, didn't catch it the first time I looked at the picture! I kinda wish the mom(?) was cropped out, or placed more into the frame though. Overall a good picture wich I bet will be valued in the future.


Thank you so much for the suggestion. I never considered cropping the image, but you are right! I love this thread so much hehe.

Hi, I'm new here! I'm Giulia from Italy. You guys with your photos pushed me to the final decision of buying my X-E1. I'm about to sell my Canon gear to buy some Fuji lenses.
I actually have 18-55 and 35mm. I still don't know which lenses I want to buy next

Here's a couple of shots


X-E1 - 18mm - 1/400 - f/10 - ISO 200


X-E1 - 18mm - 1/30 - f/3.6 - ISO 400

Welcome sceptic and shadowplay! A nice start from you both.

Inspired by johnahill's beautiful B&Ws and the recent discussion I decided to try it on this landscape from our recent trip to Sweden.. It's done in Lightroom though, because I haven't yet sold any gear so I can't buy that Silver Exef software. I have so much to learn about B&W processing, but it's a start. X-E1 + Fuji 14mm.

Welcome shadowplay! I don't know if you need another lens after those two Perhaps one of the coming ones, like the 56/1.2?

Helena,
Great Job on the B&W

You do not really need Silver Effects if you have LR or PS. I do have Silver Effects & use it when I am in a hurry. But typically I use LR. The color channel sliders in LR really do a nice job in the B&W mode. Sometimes I use PS using Color Channels and masks to do local tone adjustments (Actually it is a Jeff Schewe action). With some practice you can get any look you like. (it looks like you don't need much practice!) I often add grain via LR to give a look I like after I get the tones right.

However Silver Effects is a nice program & is very popular. I cannot fault one for choosing it.

Great images!

sceptic and Giulia (Shadowplay), as mentioned by JL and HelenaN, welcome to FM.

sceptic, the Vivitar Series 1 90/2.5 Macro (and it's twin, the Tokina AT-X 90/2.5 Macro) are bonafide Cult Classics*

John and HelaneN,

I think I like the XF 14/2.8 R as much you do. My "travel kit" is heading towards X-Pro 1 with XF 14/2.8, 35/1.4, and 60/2.4 Mcaro, plus 6D with 70-200/4L IS and 1.4x III Extender.

Jordan,

The OM 200/4 is a peach! (mine is better than my CZ 100-300/4.5-5.6 MMJ, at 200mm)
