Re: Did you also have the Fuji 10-24mm lens?

I've been trying to do some research and choose between getting the fuji 14mm f2.8 or the Fuji 10-24mm f4 and I'm curious id you used the Fuji 10-24mm on some of these?

If so, I do believe you just sold me on getting the 10-24mm lens lol.

Absolutely stunning pictures!

Thank you Smiller4128.

Yes, many of these images were shot with the 10-24 lens.  If you check the EXIF on most of the wide angle images you will see that the 10mm Focal length gets a lot of use.  The second, third & fourth images above were all with this lens.

My own feeling is that outside of low light street photography, the faster 14mm lens has less utility than the more versatile & wider zoom.  I'm often shooting wider than 14 mm & like to stop down to smaller apertures to exploit that huge depth of field at 10mm so the 10-24 is better fit for me.  The Mussels Galore image above was shot at 10mm & F13 with everything from the shells in the foreground  (3 inches from the lens) to the far distant islands in focus.  Quite impressive really.

I have had number of wide angle angle lenses from the 10.5 mm Nikkor Fisheye, the 15 mm Canon Fisheye & the 17-40 Canon but none have been as sharp, with so little CA & so little distortion.

It's a very impressive piece of glass -highly recommended.
