[XPro1] A recent trip to Penn State and Mohawk Trail (MA)
Oct 19, 2012

I recently attended a conference in Penn State Uni and took the opportunity to hike the Mohawk Trail with my friends. It was my first time camping in the wood and it turned out to be a great experience.

The light and compact XPro1 turned out to have a great advantage over my friend's 5D 24-70L combo when hiking. I still long for a fast portrait lens with super shallow DOF though, and for this I've decided to get a 5D + 85/1.8 lens. It won't be used as often as the XPro1 but it is necessary for those family portraits.

I rarely used the 18mm because I couldn't bother changing lens too often and the 35 did a good job in most situations. Btw, for some reasons photos uploaded to dpreview seem to be a 1/3 stop brighter than they appear on my computer.
