Was curious: what are your favorite lenses to use with your X-Pro2? Do you use the optical viewfinder a lot?

I have the 35 f1.4 and 18 f2 and enjoy them both - the 35 is slow (on any body) but the IQ is stellar and it’s perfectly matched to the XP2. I also had the 23 f2 in the past and intend to get another for the combination of fast focussing and weather resistance.

I do use the OVF most of the time, the EVF and rear screen too, I love having all the options and being able to go “analogue” and see reality in the frame rather than a digital image, as useful as that can also be sometimes.

I much prefer the 23mm focal length over 35mm.  However, for some reason, I really love the Fujifilm 35/1.4 and won't sell it, despite not using it as often.

I really feel more connected with what I'm seeing using the OVF, especially in very bright or dim lighting.  It makes for an interesting shooting experience when part of the view can be blocked by the barrel of larger/longer lenses.
