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!

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.

Beautiful images, congratulations!  Did you use presets from VSCO 4?  If you only bought one VSCO pak to start, which would you choose?  Thanks!
