Yes, it's the portrait side of it that's really got my attention, despite the relatively wide focal length. I'm going to Africa in January, not safari, just somewhere with loads and loads of people, in fact rarely will I be shooting one person. In that regard, it's now coming down to whether I get a (non weather resistant) X-E3 to replace my X-T1 or get this lens and right now, getting the X-E3 instead of the 16mm seems a bit silly.
No it didn't, I think the decision's already been made, haha. Useful to know they were taken on the X-T1. It's all about the lenses eh? And the potential for creativity with that lens seems boundless. Thanks Bobby.Those four photos were shot on a X-T1, of that helps with your decision.
