    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Terry, Stephen's site was going to be my source, too; very reasonable price.

    Jim, my understanding is that the OVF/EVF combo. was so complex it was deemed not possible to add an adjustable diopter. That is the main reason I did not get the X-Pro 1, too, and why I am so happy about the X-E1.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Seems a bit silly to avoid using a camera for the sake of maybe $50 investment in getting the right diopter. It hasn't been a secret from day one that there are a number of options for replaceable eyepieces with different diopter strengths from Nikon and 3rd parties. Heck, even Leica don't have an adjustable diopter on the M series ...

    Just saying. There are many reasons not to like the X-Pro1 but this one seems to be a little unreasonable.

    The problem is making sure you get the right diopter. I don't want to buy them all and then return those that don't work.. and I don't want to buy one on the chance that it does not work and have to return it. Fuji was supposed to offer their own diopters but I have yet to see them as being available anywhere. Just wish dealers had a set so you could try before you buy. I realize that unless you are close to a Fuji dealer this solves nothing.

    I have been using the X-Pro1 just fine without a diopter but I do wish I could get my hands on "the right one for me"...

    As for Leica.. well, nevermind.. not worth going into.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    After using the Xpro1, I found it to be one of the most satisfying cameras i've ever used. I actually sold my Nex-7, because I couldn't get use to the EVF. Pair the Xpro1 with a "Thumbs Up" and the Fuji grip, and you have a camera with fantastic ergonomics. I would often pair this camera with my Gitzo 1780QR and 1541T tripod, and could travel anywhere! I'd use a cable release with the LCD stopwatch (nicely thought out), as the viewfinder automatically shuts, and counts up/down. The XE-1, imo, is not an upgrade, but the addition of a 14mm lens is really cool.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I have no bones to pick about using an EVF. My OM-D's EVF is very usable (even if it is not as hi-res as the Sony NEX 6-7 or the X-E1) but Oly's manual focus aids leave a bit to be desired. I am quite taken with the X-Trans Sensor and the X lenses and firmly believe that that the X-E1 will combine them all in a very compelling package.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Graham, in my case (and I wrote about this at the time) my assistant needs no eye correction, and I need +2, and on event jobs we like to swap bodies. A fixed diopter is no problem at all, I agree, if the camera only needs to fit you.

    And for me personally the smaller form factor and lighter weight and EVF-only are all pluses. I have one on order with my 'holy trinity': 14/2.8, 35/1.4, and 60/2.4. When the pancake and the UWA zoom materialise I will probably get these, too.

    Price is nice, that cat photo on the top is just WOW, there's apparently an adapter available for my CY 85/1.4... very, very tempting.

    that cat photo is simply wow! now i'm thinking about this camera when i was almost going to buy an omd...glad i didn't! I just hope the image quality is exactly the same as the xpro1...i know i know its the same sensor but even the leica x1 and x2 were supposed to be the same but really the IQ on the X1 seems a tiny bit better... imho....

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    I am watching the X-E1 with interest because if I can fit in pocket without the lens, I may sell all I have and have this Fuji as my one and only camera for paid work and personal work. Right now most likely I am not buying it. And i have to make sure I test the X1-Pro after the firmware upgrade to get an idea.. hopefully with the camera of a friend.. :-)

    You can usually find Nikon diopters on ebay for around $10 each.

    Got to hang out today in New York with our own Ashwin Rao (Ashwinroa1), Steve Gomes (sjg284), and Ashwin's SO, Jennifer. Ashwin and Jen are in town for a wedding, and I'm hanging out while my wife attends a conference. Steve was nice enough to take the day off and show us around. Here's the crew:

    Thanks Lloyd. Actually 2 of them were with the 35. I have updated the post.

    One more from yesterday with the 60, not a great shot in itself but I like the colours. After the atrocious UK summer, I am quietly hopeful for a good autumn. Signs are starting to appear. I still love how RPP renders the RAWs, this one using the K64 simulation, then a little tinkering in LR (highlights down, sharpness up).

    Actually I find my 18mm pretty bad. Not sure what is going on here. The 35mm is fine.

    School is out forever...

    I visited an old, abandoned school in Crockett, Texas over the weekend.. still have a lot of shots to work on but here is one that I found to be interesting both in light and content. Taken with the X-Pro1 and the 18mm.

    I find the 18 to be a great little lens and use it quite a bit.. in fact, all the photos I took of this old school were taken with the 18 and it did a great job especially in the shots that were high to low contrast like this.. now I do have to say that post work enters into the equation but it is still the lens/sensor combo that makes the post work possible.

    I took the K5 and the X-Pro1 with me and used both for many shots. The Fuji shots of the exterior did contain more detail than those I took with the K5 but I expected that due to the sensor design and lack of AA filter... that said, the K5 did a very good job as well.

    Here is an exterior shot of the old school taken with the K5.. (hope no one minds).. I'm still working on the Fuji version and will post it when I get the chance/time.

    10PM at night I decided to go shoot this old locomotive in Grapevine, Texas. This is a static display. Illumination was by two sodium vapor street lights.

    David, high praise (for which I am not worthy) but I have looked at just about everything I could find of his.. how I wish steam locomotives still roamed the tracks of this country.. his work was/is amazing.

    Ok, I had to do it... the first version just did not look right to me.. what a difference eight hours of sleep can make. Moral of the story is don't do post work when you are tired.

    Here is the updated version using Photoshop CS6.. did not bother with Lightroom on this one. I am much happier with this one. It pops a bit more and there is better definition of detail. Not too bad for ISO 1600.

    Here are a couple from last night, to go with recent themes. Focus is much better in low light:
