I would agree. When I put 27mm on my XE-1, it makes the combo very very compact. It's not jean-pocketable I know, but jacket-pocketable for sure.
XE-1 and 27mm is the best " point-n-shoot" camera!

However, I also have 23mm 1.4 and I have to say, the 23mm lens is in different league.

Amazing how we can use the same camera in such different ways ...

I got a 27 rather cheap in the bay just today. I will see how I like the combo. I am aware that it is a compromise and not the best offering Fuji has optically. Most lenses are considered better.
If I stick with Fuji I will sure build on the lenses and switch to XT-1. XE-1 and 27 are my cheapo pocket-
test set, to find out whether I like mirrorless or not.

thanks for the replys.

love the flower shots, nice mood and rendering.

I purchased 27mm couple months ago at its full price and i had to return it because lacking of sharpness. I felt bad about that lens. But then when the price came down as rebate, I tried again and now I have a really good copy, quite sharp at 2.8. So I got a bad copy at first.
I also got 23mm 1.4 and I have to say 23mm is amazing. But 27mm is very good for the price though. When I detach 23mm from my XE1 and replace it by 27mm... then wow... the combo is totally different in size and weight!
XE-1 and 27mm combo is so small and light ( much smaller and lighter when it goes with either 23mm or 18-55) that I believe many people would think it a point-n-shoot camera ;-). Very low profile while taking great pictures.
For the price at it's now, 27mm is worth to get for XE1/2. Enjoy yours!

Low profile shooting is a good thing. When I go for the more expensive lenses, I'd have to sell some Zeiss lenses. Not ready for that yet. If I don't like the 27 I can still sell it and get 35mm instead.
I am sure the 23 is something different, it also has a different price tag unfortunately.

Normally I'm a raw shooter, but I've been impressed what I can do in camera with the XE-1 just by tweaking the JPEG settings. Here's one of my first from the new-to-me XE-1:

Back to the X-E2 today, as I had to send the X-T1 back after my week for review.

This is with the 55-200:

The 18 may be the worst optically of the Fuji primes, but it's still very good.

Finally the Aurora Borealis showed up on a clear evening. Usually it's either overcast or the lights doesn't show up until three in the morning... Since we were going for a weekend trip early the next day and I hadn't yet packed I was a bit stressed, but got a few decent ones (X-A1 + XF 14mm). Hope I'll have another chance soon.

Helena, never saw the Aurora above the lights of a city. Great shot.

I have to say, the Fuji 23/1.4 is exceeding my expectations.
Just a little bokeh test.






100% crops. There is a tiny bit of CA visible in the eye which I did not correct. This is out of the X-A1 and taken at F2.

Rendering is quite nice for a busy background.

Ian and BokehBeauty, thank you, and everyone else for the likes!
It was the most powerful Northern lights in many years, so I sure am glad I decided to go out even though I was really busy. I don't feel I made the most of it though, so hopefully there will be another evening like it soon.

Tariq, very nice indeed. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, it does very good overall, particularly given it's wider FL on APS. Occasionally I notice where out of focus, bright, busy areas are accentuated with the Fuji 23/1.4 (they seem to come forward more and are brighter) to a greater extent than I'm used to but then my reference here is the RX1 Sonnar.
