Mine came within a whisker off being traded for a XC 15-45, or XF 16/2.8 yesterday. But the store I went to had no stock, or even demo units to try.
I don’t dislike the lens, just not inspired by the focal length.
I think the planets aligned nicely for me there.
I’d turned in my seat to take a shot of the “well lit group in the corner” and was aware one of the wait staff had walked into the frame. I didn’t notice at that moment she’d turned towards me as well.
I had the chance to get a used 100t but it was outside of my intended budget. I would have preferred the controls on the 't', but I'm getting used to the quirkiness of the control switch and dial of the 's'.
Thanks for the back button focus tip!
Some nice first images there. I've been very happy with my 23/2, and glad Fujifilm provided that focal length as an option more in line with my budget (mine was in fact second hand, so virtually a steal).
I hope to pick up the 50/2 as my next lens purchase.
As a tiny minority X-E3 owner :wink: I'll do my best to post some images, I was bummed that I wasn't able to get one before my Queenstown trip. All my recent images are family photos, which I'm not big on sharing.
I'd progressed from the X-E1 to X-E2 as well. I get that the X-E3 won't be for everyone — personally I have no interest in the X-T bodies, and the X-Pro 2 is about $1000 more camera than I can justifiably afford.
For me, the four swipe gestures are better than the d-pad if only for the reason...
