    Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    I bought the X-E2 and took it out to my favorite auto graveyard to play with it this afternoon. All shots are JPG as Lightroom does not recognize the RAF files from the X-E2 as being legit.

    During the few hours I was out this afternoon the camera performed perfectly. No lockups, glitches of any kind. Battery life was good as well and the EVF is soo much better than the one in my X-Pro 1.

    Speaking of which, it is boxed up and ready for Craig's List.

    You can see about 29 shots here: Untitled Document

    Here are few you can view in the forum.

    Looks great. I'm (im)patiently waiting for my X-E2 body to be delivered.

    How do you like the new layout and AF?

    I do believe the Fuji has the edge.. they are very close but the Fuji really appears to have more out of camera sharpness and DR.

    New layout is better, not perfect. Also like the new delete frame functionality.

    Thanks for the information. How about AF speed and accuracy XE-2 vs. K5IIs?

    The X-E2 is a tad slower in the AF department but that was to be expected. However, AF appears to always be accurate in my use so far. When using the 18-55mm AF is really fast. Slower on the 60mm. 35mm seem just a bit slower than the 18-55mm.

    The slowest lens is the 60mm but then look at what has to be moved to achieve focus. I'm not being an apologist for this.. it should be faster but for what and how I shoot, it's just not an issue.

    If I know I may be dealing with moving targets, I will use the Pentax K5 IIs.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Here's a two more using the 35mm. I've debated the DP Merrill vs the Fuji Xpro, but I really like the lens assortment of the Fuji and the beauty of metal.

    Day 2 with the X-E2

    I've added a few more photos taken in Dallas this afternoon. I was amazed by the X-Pro 1 when I bought it and did not think that the X-E2 would generate as much enthusiasm as that camera did but I was wrong.. this little guy rocks.

    Here's the link to the Day 2 photos:

    And a couple for you to view here..

    Great shots showing what the X-E2 can do in capable hands. Which raw converter are you using.

    These are all JPGs.. Lightroom does not recognize the RAF files from the X-E2. Until it does I shoot RAW+JPG, use the JPG for now and save the RAF files for later review.

    Jim….have you updated the lenses firmware? Apparently it makes a big difference with the X-E2.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    thanks for posting these Jim, they all look great...did you do much to the jpegs in LR?

    I'd also like your take on all the hoopla about problems, smearing, etc. when using raw files with certain raw developers, if you don't mind. I've just read so many conflicting 'opinions'.

    I played with an x-m1 a couple weeks ago, images in the photo store on my own card, and the images look pretty fine. I developed with LR, Photo Ninja, and Iridient. They all looked slightly different, but all looked good. Used the kit lens and the 18mm.

    Personally more interested in the xm1 for the tilt lcd, but wish it also had an evf or ovf.

    Jim, I just love the detail and color you show here. I've also seen some of your pentax night shots lately. Excellent.

    Thanks.

    No, unboxed it, put a battery in in and started shooting... will update today or tonight. Hope to sneak out of the office for a few hours this afternoon and play a bit more with it.

    Thanks, not much post work was needed.. and the JPGs are just stunning in IQ, color and details.

    An articulated LCD on the X-E2 would truly be icing on the cake.. so many times I need to shoot high or low and that tilt screen would really help in those situations.

    Next time I head out to do some night work I am taking the X-E2. There is really no reason it should not perform well. I've just not done it.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E1

    Using the 18-55/XE-1: experimenting with the macro option. I'll tell you right up front that this lens does not compare with the up close marvels of the 14mm and the 35/1.4 (see earlier posts)...but...nice and sharp nonetheless.

    Am I the only one with this camera? If you've got the X-E2, let's see your photos.. post them here.

    Here's a couple I took on my long lunch break in a western furniture and decor store in Fort Worth, Texas today.

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    I had a play with the XE2 and while it is an improvement over the XE1, I still find AF much slower as on the Olympus EM1.

    Not even to speak about the quality of the EVF, which IMHO is to date by far the best in the EM1 - there are light-years between!

    Maybe, but depending on ones definition of light years, one might say the same about the difference in IQ. Jim`s shot with the blue sky is impressive. MFT blue sky shots at base iso still show too much noise in comparison, light years behind from what I see here from the Fuji (I`m in the mft camp as well with the Pana GX7).

    I absolutely cannot second this. I did intensive comparisons between Fuji (XPro1) and Olympus EM5 some months ago and with proper settings in Aperture and/or LR there are almost no differences, especially with noise at base ISO. I would even judge the IQ the other way round, now I shoot the EM1, which is clearly another step over he EM5. But I do not know about Panasonic and how they handle base ISO noise.

    Finally for me all the IQ talks and advertisements about Fuji's advantage turned out to dissolve completely - at least what I could see and judge from my own experiences. Both are great systems, but with the current generation of sensors available in the Olympus m43 cameras I do not see real differences - at least not up to ISO3200. Maybe above Fuji has a slight edge, but even in these areas the new EM1 is a masterpiece.

    PLUS - m43 is finally much smaller if one compares a reasonable system.

    So you are keeping the X-E2 and dropping the X-Pro 1 ... will you go to the X-Pro 2 if the IQ and EVF match the X-E2?

    I assume you picked up the X-E2 at Arlington Camera/DFW Expo?

    I bought their K-3 based on your K-5 IIS posts and your Boxed Light galleries...and am seriously thinking of adding an X-E2 after seeing these pics.

    Regards,

    Bob, yes. I am dropping the X-Pro 1. No, I will not go to the X-Pro 2 if the IQ and EVF match the X-E2 because there would be nothing gained. If it far exceeds the X-E2 that may be another story.

    Yes, bought it at the DFW Expo... they had one black body only.

    The K5 IIs is a keeper. I use it for different purposes.

    The X-E2 has one thing the K5 IIs and the X-Pro 1 do not have... WYSIWYG in the viewfinder.. that makes a tremendous difference when you are shooting and that, to me, is reason alone to get the X-E2. No more guessing about - or + EV.. you see it, you shoot it, you get it.... Just the feature I wanted.

    I'm supposed to be first on the list at the store where I ordered it but so far no black bodies have come in yet. I was told maybe around Thanksgiving…

    Went around my house and neighborhood with the cam doing its thing. Just wanted to get to know what and how it does.


    They are replacing our older fibre optic cable with a super duper one. Hence the diggings..

    Too many Jims. I am interested in your default jpg settings. Would you share that? Are you using a specific fuji film type and with what variations?
    Thanks,

    I am using the camera defaults: RAW + JPG Fine
    I also use Velvia and Provia

    Always use aperture priority and manually adjust the aperture to get what I like int he EVF or LCD.

    Sorry... all are camera defaults as I took it out of the box. DR on auto. No secret sauce.. just my normal workflow.. very little tweaking required... honest.

    Three from today..

    First the Minolta Rokkor on the X-E2 with a cheap adapter from Rainbow Imaging.

    The Minolta Rokkor 58mm f/1.2 is one of the great manual focus lenses. Made over 30 years ago it works well today on the Fuji X-E2 with an adapter and using focus peaking.

    I've tried using this lens on other cameras with little success due to my old eyes but the focus peaking of the X-E2 lets me get the focus right. The lens produces a very shallow depth of field and dreamy bokeh. It's a tad soft wide open but stopped down it is razor sharp... this one is at f/1.2.



    Next.. how about that cheap kit lens.. you know, the 18-55mm inside a shiny Corvette using available light at ISO 800, no noise reduction.



    And last a very dirt Mercedes.. water spots everywhere.. how could they try to sell this filthy automobile?



    All are JPG. Post in Lightroom.

    I think I should go to a workshop run by Jim to learn how to produce such smooth, yet sharp looking files with a pleasent rendering of details.

    I found a memory and bought it...

    While browsing in an antique store (created for men: Mantiques) I came across this old lantern. It is a Dietz Trafic Gard Lantern, made in the 1940s. It was in such good shape and looked so unique that I parted with $38 to add it to my collection of "Weird and Wonderful Stuff". The top hinge that allows access to the wick and globe was rusted tight and I could not remove it to clean it. I gave it a couple of shots of WD40 and let it sit overnight.

    This morning it was beginning to loosen and a few more shots of WD40 did the trick. I decided to shoot it late on Thanksgiving Day just for the fun of it. It's a beautiful old lantern that brings back memories of my childhood when such things were used on road construction sites and railroads. Anything that brings back memories is worth holding on to.. even at today's prices.

    Thanks, Jono. High praise coming from you.

    I love old things and have been looking for an interesting lantern for some time now. Many of them are way overpriced. A search on eBay showed this one, in good condition, going for $85 and up.. I got a good deal at the price I paid.

    Good to hear from you.

    Jim

    Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2

    Brilliant start to the "Fun with X-E2" thread, Jim. Thank you.

    I received my X-E2 on Nov. 15th, but have had little time to play with it. Your images are wonderful and inspiring here. As you've described, the X-E2 has a number of improvements that make it a pleasure to use (e.g. new EVF is very usable).

    I"ve only played with the "kit" lens, but have the 35mm en route; and with adapter, a Canon 135 f/2.0 L is great fun on this camera.

    There's always room for improvements with any kit, but Fuji gets a lot right with this one.
