Thank you kwoodard, Martin and Jeffrey (and for the likes everyone)! I didn't have high expectations of Machu Picchu because I had imagined it would be crowded with tourists, so this was a treat. Great atmosphere with the thunder and flashes. When we got back to the hotel it started to rain and the flashes lit up the room over and over again, often several in just a few seconds. It was impossible to sleep, so we just sat in the window and enjoyed the show until it passed.

That the foot bridge over 315 off the Olentagy bike trail Jordan ?

Speedbooster may well be worth the extra cash over a cheaper adapter for alt glass from what I've been seeing (or could apply cost to a A7....lol)

Wonderful shot Mike, i wish I was fishing off that short pier.

Here are some more shots with the Schacht Ulm Auto R Travenar 135mm f/3.5 and the EX1. I don't care what people say, I must have an exceptional copy...or it just matches super well with the Fuji. Just a little touch up on these, the B&W was converted in camera, then I added a touch of sepia. I thought the emotion in the image warranted it. I wish it was sharper, but with the way she was looking so wistful, I envisioned how this turned out; just wish it was sharper.

Kevin, beautiful picture, the first, and beautiful background separation.

I love the new responsiveness of the X-E2 and the reliability of the AF together with the 60mm f2.4. Finally I can use it for what I bought the lens. Sure there could be better background separation, maybe some PP will help.

PS: I decided to remove the image as it would need explanation.

Took the XE-1 on a trip to see family in FL over Thanksgiving and I couldn't be happier with its performance. I brought along my 6D, but barely touched it.

I just wanted to stop in and say that there are many, many amazing pictures in this thread. I finally jumped into mirror less last week by picking up the XE2, 18-55 and the 23mm lens. It will be in addition to my extensive Canon gear that I use for wildlife and birding. I plan to use the XE2 for hiking and travel where my purpose isn't wildlife.

I use LR5 for my Canon gear and have continued to use it for the XE2 so far. I've been shooting RAW + Fine so I can compare the Fuji jpeg (which everyone says is so good) against the RAW and my own processing. I have a hard time matching the Fuji jpeg with the RAW in LR. I really like the jpeg but I'm a die hard RAW fan and don't know if I could bring myself to just shoot jpeg on this camera....oh the dilemmas. I also don't want to bother with any other software, so will stick with LR but not sure if I will stick with RAW.

My next big decision is whether to purchase the 14mm or wait for the 10-24. I can't decide what I'd use more. I love the quality of these Fuji lenses though. So well made...and I'm used to shooting $10,000 lenses from Canon.

The Fuji 14 us a stunningly good lens. Best ultra wide I've ever owned. I'm sure the 10-24 will be good, and if course it'll be much wider, but it will also be very large. Pictures that have been shown show it to be roughly twice the size of the 14mm...roughly the size of a DSLR UWA zoom.

Yes, I've seen the pictures of it and it is very big. Bigger than all the others except the telephoto zooms. I've never shot much with prime lenses except at my long focal lengths on Canon. But I'm really loving this 23mm prime. I'm really leaning towards the 14 now where as before I was set on the 10-24. I may even consider selling the 18-55 and going for a 3 lens set: 14, 23, 56 ....decisions, decisions....

I really like using primes on the Fuji. I typically carry the 14, 35, 60 and my 55-200, though sometimes I'll swap the 55-200 for my FD 85/1.8, and sometimes I bring my Speed Booster with a 50/1.4 or 55/1.2 in place of the 35. I also have the XC 16-50, which I got in a kit with the X-M1, and it's a decent lens (especially for the $100 extra it cost), and allows me to have a standard zoom for times I want one. I might pick up the 23/1.4, but I'm leaning towards getting the 27/2.8 instead, as I have the FD 35/2, which in conjunction with the Speed Booster gives me similar capability (though without AF and not quite as sharp) as the 23/1.4, and the 27 on the X-M1 will be great for a super small solution, vs my X-E2 with the larger lenses. Still on the fence about that. When the 56/1.2 comes out, though, I'll swap my 60 for that for sure. I use my OM-D for macro anyway.
