Loving the 35mm f2 D
4

I've almost given up on my quest to find a carry around camera that makes me feel like I'm not compromising.  The latest (Fuji X-T10) just doesn't give me the keeper ratio that I'm used to, although that could well be the result of 30 years of Nikon muscle memory.

What I have learned along the way with both the Fuji X100 and X-T10 with a 23mm on it is that I like 35mm more than 50mm as a standard lens.  Picked up a beaten up 35mm f2 D for $150 on eBay and the D3s on a black rapid strap suddenly doesn't feel so much of an anchor.  It's the focal length I want,  it's light, and if I bang it off something and destroy it.. no big deal.

Anyone else use this as a walking around lens?
