Re: Loved the pics, disappointed in current firmware

Nice images. Street photography is such a joy. I usually use 35 for that but have used my FE55. I’ll be sticking with these for now, not least because the 55 AF is so reliable and is my preference for outdoor portraits of people on the move (as distinct from street photography, for which  I’m mostly stopped down so a 35/2.8 is plenty fast, and because I use MF for that). In fact, in most of your samples, I think the 55 focal length would have worked as well or better, although some of the tight shots would have been missed. 45 is nice though for hedging between the 35 and 55, a slice between which I’m often oscillating. I’ll watch this space for future AF improvements.
