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)

I'm intrigued soo much by 14mm, but I want to wait for 10-24 I like the pancake lens, I think I'll wait for a good offer and buy it. Surely I'll buy the 56mm, by now I'm using an old Helios 58mm

Thank you very much guys!

W.T. Jones, that's good to hear! I wouldn't mind saving some money, so I'll spend more time with Lightroom before looking at other software.

John, all are good, but I really like the second one! Great light, colors and atmosphere.

sceptic, that crow shot is very nice!

Just a quick baby shot. My son with the X-M1 and 35/1.4....I love the way this lens draws.

I have the 27/2.8 in for review this week...nice little lens, about the same size as the Panny 20/1.7 for m4/3. So far I like the results. It softens a bit at really close focus distances, but is pretty darn sharp everywhere else. I might have to pick one of these up, as the X-M1 and 27 make for a really nice small combo.

This is at f/2.8:

Another with the 27/2.8 and X-M1. Went out to scout a new skyline location and found this man just sitting on the bank. Asked if I could take his picture and he happily obliged.
