Shot Canon for 10 years before switching to the Fuji system last month. Still getting used to it, but IMO it's great! I'm only a hobby photog though FWIW.

FUji menu's have gotten much less maddening in recent years. Use to be really annoying with having logical things in 2 DIFFERENT menu locations such as auto ISO under one menu and ISO under a different menu. How no one thought those things might make sense together I don't know...

But never the less, they have really improved it quite a bit and it works well now

Figured I'd share a few shots from my first real shooting with the X-E2. Have only really used the 35mm f/1.4 so far because I haven't done much outdoors lately. These are all from our stay in the hospital during/after the birth of our boys (yep, plural, fraternal twins) a few weeks ago. Most of these shot using natural light, I think the one of the wife with the popsicle is the only one I used the pop-up flash on. She'd probably kill me if she knew that was being posted of her too

Congrats! These pictures will last a lifetime and more. I remember takin pictures of my daughter when she was born and those will be forever special for me. In fact I have a tradition that with every new camera the very first picture I take is of my wife and now my daughter. That way no matter how bad I mess up exposure, that first click will be special regardless based on the subject.

Drew when your wife sees the popsicle shot you are a dead man The last one with Mother & child is wicked good!

Tim the Chicago shots are nice, especially #2 well done

Snowed here in NH as well, so I took a walk through the woods in the middle of it all. I thought this shot would make for good play in the new NIK Analog Efex filter

As you know I'm using the X-Pro1.

My wife now also want's to enter a more serious photography. She has an excellent eye, but does not yet know anything about photography like shutter speed, aperture, manual, ISO, dynamic range, etc. In the post she used a cheap compact camera but she is not longer satisfied with the results. So, it seems clear to get a Fuji, but which one?

I can get here in Switzerland new X-M1 with the kit lens for the same price as a new X-A1 with the double lens kit ... Or is even a used X-E2 the way to go?

Any suggestions?

Thanks and regards
Mike

Nice shot. It's amazing to me how peaceful the snow can make things look.

It may take a while to find a used X-E2. I would suggest a X-M1 if she's ok with no viewfinder. I find the X-M1 with 27 pancake is perfect for my wife. Especially since upgrading from a cell phone camera, she's used to composing on an LCD screen. That combined with the wifi, tilt screen, is perfect for her. I did add the half case from Fuji to help with handling.

Sharing the same sensor as your X-Pro1 might tempt you to borrow it on days when you want to go ultra light.

I bought my wife a X-E1 with the 18-55mm that was before the X-M1 etc and she loves it, up from using the G-10. Makes justifying more lenses easier......

I tried doing that with my wife, giving her my X-E1 before I sold it. When I was explaining the shutter speed dial and how to change aperture on the front lens, she gave me the most confused look. She asked me where the iA icon is and where to find the mountain logo (scene mode). I love that Fuji made a camera that would be good fits for people like my wife, but share the same sensor.

Hi Dave, as someone that has worked with Canon for well over a decade now (transitioning from film to digital, though I still shoot film) I agree that Canon's UI is very comfortable and easy to navigate. I'm still currently using that as my main system, but in all honesty the UI on the X-Pro 1 isn't hard to navigate, most things are pretty easy to find, though I do forget where certain things are from time to time.

The Q menu is almost all you ever really need to dive into once you've setup your custom settings, most of the time I only go into the menus now to erase or format my cards.

I am just really glad that fuji has the analog controls that they do on these cameras, it's just very logical and works very much to my liking.

PS - All these snowy pictures are making me completely jealous. It's still 70-80+ here in California; another hot Christmas.

Forgive me if I posted this before, but I took this one shortly after getting my X-Pro 1. I was revisiting the image recently and I realized how similar the concept was to a painting by Caspar Friedrich titled "Monk by the Sea" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Monk_by_the_Sea). Then I started think about how many of my images are like this one when it comes to moody or contemplative landscapes that include a single person in them.

I figured I'd share it with you guys and see what you thought. As usual, feedback / critiques are always welcome.
