  • Ahh, the memories... The smaller and calmer brother, compared to its Brighton siblings. Although, I do have to admit, I preferred the landscape in the area as a photographic subject and object of ...
  • Replied in Brighton Pier
    This is the West Pier. The pier still open to the public (and not burned out and demolished) is the Brighton Palace Pier. I do remember taking some shots of West Pier myself. It is an interesting ...
  • I agree strongly with these lines. I equally do not really want to carry 4 lenses just for those times where the gap might be annoying. In all likelihood, I would carry 18/23/50 unless I do notice ...
  • The 16mm is a stellar lens, but I don't plan on spending that much on a wide angle, and the dimensions are a bit larger than I'd like. As for the mentioned trio's, 18/23/35 or 18/23/50 are indeed ...
  • Thanks for the input, Bill. 35mm or 40mm FF equivalent is my sweetspot as well. Therefore my main focus is on deciding about a 23mm or keeping the 27mm. I have considered adapting some manual ...
  • There is a lot of thruth in this, Al. I haven't looked much at other people's photographs, but throught the years I have been going through iterations of gear philosophising. That is one of the ...
  • The 14mm certainly could be an alternative on the short end. Wide angle is not my most frequently used focal range, so I might replace the 18mm last. Whether for a 14mm, a 16mm, a potential 18mm ...
  • I really am trying to keep my lens line up slim. Else there will be more to lug around than I wish, and some lenses might not see much use. If anything, the 35/2.0 could be an alternative to the ...
  • From what I have seen, the 16mm is an absolute beast of a lens. Great performance, but I could neither stomach the price of admission nor the dimensions of the lens - especially the latter. Wide ...
  • Created question thread Prime 2/3-lens setup
    Hey guys, I've been using the X-E2 for a while now with 18/2.0 and 27/2.8. I do not want to lug around too much gear and like to focus on 2-3 prime lenses. On my film bodies, my wide normal ...
  • Replied in Which software
    In the past I have been a film and Canon DSLR shooter. As a somewhat recent convert to Fuji, I have not yet found my own ultimate answer to the question. I used to use Lightroom (non-subscription ...
  • A few years ago the 40/2.0 was one of my most favourite lenses on my Olympus OM film kit - despite owning 50/1.4 and 50/1.2. Admittedly, I initially gravitated to the 40mm because the OM system ...
  • A very valid point - and an interesting one at that. Total viewfinder magnification is, as you pointed out, a combination of EVF panel size and eye piece optics. Theoretically, an EVF camera could ...
  • The OP asked how the X-T2 compared to a DSLR, to which you responded by providing the magnification of the d800 in comparison.  That was why I picked up on those two particular models. But I hope ...
  • It is important to differentiate between viewfinder magnification and size. TL;DR , the XT-2's viewfinder is smaller than the d800's, if you do the maths. Let me explain (some simplifications): (1) Vie ...
  • A very interesting question, indeed. I own 18/2 and 27/2.8 and have thought about purchasing a 23/2. However, I wonder how much use my 27mm would see after that. I suppose, 18mm, 23mm and 35mm ...
  • Any lens which has a longer focal length than its physical length is - technically speaking - a telephoto lens. The XF 50/2.0 is about 59mm in length, however the FF equivalent focal length is ...
  • I prefer the X-E2 line to the X-T10 as well. The X-T10 is not as wide as the X-E2, making the camera seem crammed. I don't have particularly large hands and the X-T10 felt uncomfortable to hold. Th ...
  • Replied in Manual focus ?
    To my knowledge only the 16mm and 23mm have the clutch mechanism to switch between auto and manual focus. And even these designs operate "focus by wire". The camera will not so much "remember" ...
  • Please don't mistake weather-resistant for water-proof. It would be an expensive oversight. Patagonia "bad" weather can be "bad bad", which I am sure you are aware of. Considering your valid points ...
