The 18-55 is a very good lens, though not a truly great lens. It's better than your average kit lens, and the extra speed is good, but it's a little finicky at times. Images can be quite sharp, but I find sometimes this lens misfocuses from time to time, which is odd.

I have the 35/1.4 too, which is a great lens. Beautiful rendering. not quite as sharp as my PL 25/1.4 for m4/3 at wide apertures, but the way it draws is so good (and it's quite sharp in the center wide open) that I don't care at all. Wonderful lens.


So, you prefer the 35 drawing and are annoyed by the misfocus of the zoom? Does the zoom sharpness seem acceptable to you? I've found my 35 misses focus, too ... but thought that was just part of the fuji system and their new-to-me focusing.

Yeah, the sharpness is fine. The 18-55 doesn't misfocus often. Most of the time it's dead on. It's just that every once in a while, it'll misfocus for no good reason at all (in good light). And not by all that much...just enough to make the picture go wonky. It's on maybe 1% of images. I find when I do my job carefully, I get pretty good results out of the 18-55. It's not as good as the 35, but it's pretty good. The night shots above are very sharp.

Two quick skyline shots (same place, different framing) from tonight, again with the 18-55. It was windy as all getout (30-40MPH), so I'm glad I have a sturdy tripod. These are 10 and 15 second exposures, so the wind could have really messed these up. Luckily, no issues:









So you want me to wake up early and capture...

I have been to this place with camera hundred times, but never early morning... Never got this beautiful view... Superb capture...

My X100 (got from FM B/S forum) is on a way, this will be a place...

I went for a bit of a walk the other day and found some gloves by one of the schools in my neighbourhoord.

Went out for a hiking yesterday to test drive my new (used) x-e1.
The lens I used was old Vivitar 200mm f3.5 MD mount lens I bought for less than $20 dollars from eb** a few years back.
I shot this guy on the way back to my car. I realized when I shoot (even with manual shutter, iso) towards bright sky, the EVF goes really dark and all I see is silhouette.
I need more practice.
Anyway, the Fujis are so much fun cameras!

Second photo is a crop. Will x-e1 replace my 1dmk4? lol

Finished PPing the photos from my trip to Tromsoe, Norway in February, which is a new thing to me.

Usually the RAW files linger in my hard drive for years.

Love the Fuji output, although I found hard to get WB right on photos with snow on mixed lighting conditions.

I still give the nod to my NEX-5n+CV15 for landscapes though.

The Fuji really has trouble with pinetrees! !

Here are some random favorites, all Fuji XE-1+35 or 18-55, PP in Lr4 with sometimes Nik Color Efex.



















Complete set here.

Thanks for looking!
