I want to thank Fujifilm Italy for organizing yesterday’s eXperience Day in Milan and letting me test-drive a bunch of X lenses, including the 14mm f/2.8 and the 35mm f/1.4. I spent a couple hours shooting with the latter on my X-E2 and was impressed with how sharp and fast-focusing that glass is. I think I now know what lens I am going to get next. The 14mm is great too, but I have that length covered with my Tokina 11-16mm, so that one can wait.
I also wanted to use my 60mm f/2.4 for what it should be good at, besides macro, and that’s portraits, so I asked some strangers on the street to pose for me and got a handful of nice portraits. When the 60mm focuses, it’s very sharp, but sometimes it hunts and misses; it takes some learning to increase the rate of keepers.
I shot most of everything at the widest aperture possible for each lense, just because I can.
