Had an opportunity to shoot today, rarity for me lately with all the drama in my life...

Fuji X-E1, Nikkor 50mm f/1.4, and with three of the four, a Nikon M2 extension tube (27.5mm).

Chilling out inside a rose. Surprised I even saw this one.

Mike, that is one heck of a string of shots. Where were the sea side shots taken? Were they with the X1 Pro? Thanks again for sharing your work.

@photorebel
Thanks a lot for your kind words, I really appreciate them!

@alba63, ourabmen
Thanks a lot. All sea side photos were taken with a X-Pro1 and either the 18-55mm or the 14mm.
The location was not the Baltic Sea but the North Sea in the province Zealand in Netherlands, a really beautiful place.

@MartinL
Thanks a lot! Before I take a photo I always have a vision and how I want the picture to look like. With HDR photos I rarely ever have luck (at least in color they look plastic, unrealistic), so I prefer the black & white ones.

Here the color one for comparison with an additional black & white one from the end of the same alley

These were taken this evening just before sunset at Lock Ridge Park, Alburtis, PA with my tripod mounted X-E1 and my Minolta CLE MC 40mm f2.0 M-Rokkor lens. Images processed in LR5.3RC.

Some shots from a 20 minute walk about town after work. It was really windy, and therefore freezing. Probably 30-40 mph winds. These are all with the X-E2 and XF 23/1.4:

Nice light and composition Jordan

Man....its killing me just having this 23/1.4 and 14/2.8 sitting on my desk with no X-E2 to mount them on. Heard rumors of black bodies shipping on the 1st of Dec.

Anyone else heard any facts/rumors/guesses when Adorama et al might have stock again ?

I got a black body last week from Adorama. I didn't realize they were sold out already?

Here's my little one munching on a plastic block. Not the best background, I know, but it's hard to wrangle a one year old on your own!

Went to the Honolulu zoo today to practice more with the X-E1 and the 18-55 ois there were two baboons far off in the distance of a glass enclosure but just at my feet there was a large one one at the edge of the glass lookout. I quickly pointed the camera down... manual focus but hit the AF AE lock button and .... greenish hue is from the glass

@Jordan
Wonderful set! Thanks for sharing. Hopefully you will stay with the Fuji and not change to the E-M1

Damn Mike. Very nice. You should shoot more often.

A few more from my X-E1 and 35/1.4.

Boston:
















Portland ME:






And for no good reason, a tiger (heavy crop, edited in LR5, 18-55 at the long end):

Hum. The apple store; I pass that one at least once a week; maybe I should stop in sometime ? However, I don't remember seeing a tiger anywhere near it

A few "behind the scenes" shots with the X-E2 and 35 f/1.4 at a school 'rock concert' over the weekend.

And a few of the show, which featured a variety of bands ranging from middle school (youngest being 6th graders) up to seniors in high school.

Again, X-E2 with 35 f/1.4 wide open. There were countless times where I wished my damn 23 f/1.4 had arrived, as the extra FL would have been nice. 14 f/2.8 just wasn't fast enough.

These look superb. So is low light focusing a GO on the X-E2 compared to X-E1?

My last night with the 23/1.4. Have to send my review sample back tomorrow. May have to save up for this one. (my review should be done later this evening). All on the X-E2. Edit: My review of the 23/1.4 is now up for those interested: http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-fujinon-xf-23mm-f1-4-r/

Yes and no. AF on the X-E2 is a marked improvement over the X-E1's, with significant performance gains across all conditions. That said, it can still hunt a bit in truly dark/low light situations. The X-E1 was like training a puppy: Once you established your expectations (i.e., camera settings, learning functional idiosyncrasies, shooting proactively, etc) then you'd usually get what you hoped for. The X-E2 is like having a purebred that's been professionally trained: It does what you ask 99% of the time.

It should be noted that for this series of shots, lighting was often good on stage; rarely was there total darkness. I had my 5D3 with fast L glass along just in case. It's super fast in low light and instills confidence shooting in conditions like this. That said, I never felt the need to grab it ... which is good, since it'd have been overkill for a bunch of snapshots.

FWIW ... I shot Auto ISO with a ceiling of 3200 since lighting varied almost constantly throughout the show, going from bright whites to dimmer, coloured gels. If there had been consistent light on stage I would have shot full manual at a set ISO. Looking back on image files I can see ISO ranging from 800 to 3200.

One thing has me scratching my head though. My *minimum shutter speed* for Auto ISO was set to 1/100 sec. However, I see shutter values as low as 1/18 of sec! In fact, a good half of my image files register below the 1/100 threshold set in-camera. Not sure why and will have to investigate, because results for under, say, 1/60 were blurry (as might be expected).

Rob I have found that on my X100s the camera will go below set speed. I assume to get the shot. However it does not warn you at all it is doing that. I am not sure whist to think of it just yet. I nave not spent a bunch of time investigating it. But I did notice it right away when I was first looking over the features. Perhaps some more engineering needs to go into that feature.

Did you cap the ISO range at the top?
