Tokyo with the X-E2
12

Just finished uploading the images to my portfolio from my first visit to Tokyo. Such an amazing city!

This time i only brought the X-E2 and the following lenses 14mm, 23mm, 35 and 55-200mm. Compared to my X-Pro1 i would say that the much improved EVF and the faster AF were the main things i noticed in real life shooting.

I did shoot at high ISO:s a lot (3200-6400) I really like organic feel of the noise the x-trans sensor produces, very filmlike.

All the images are processed in Lightroom 5.3 with VSCO presets.

You'll find them here: http://www.ishoot.se/tokyo

Hope you like them.

Re: Tokyo with the X-E2

Brilliant!

For some reason this site always loads super slow for me, so haven't seen them all yet.

What was your favourite/most used lens?

I would say the 23mm and the 35mm. I really miss a shorter telephoto lens. The 55-200mm is physically too big for urban shooting. I'm waiting for the 56mm to arrive, gonna buy it day one for sure!

I have only had time to go through the Tokyo pics so far, want to look at the other sites, too. Those Tokyo pics are gorgeous, though!

I love how colorful Asian cities are, especially compared with the city in which I live, which has to be one of the blandest places on earth. Kind of like everyone else's money versus the US money...

Re: What a fantastic set

Some good stuff here. I like the image outside the resturant (#12) a lot. Great atmosphere and color. I also really like the shot of the bartender. Great exposure. Rich and crisp.
