Re: Fun with the Fuji X-E2
Jim I have a few questions for you, hope you don't mind to answer.
First I must say that I didn't make the jump YET from film just because I wasn't pleased with what I was seing and because the digital cameras are full of nonsens useless settings and buttons making the use of the camera very un-friendly.
1) I believe this XE2 is straight forward to use, similar to film with one button one function and I don't need many, no need to deep into menus, so please confirm this. All I need is ISO, shutter and aperture, center and spot metering. Ok add a review and a delete button.
2) Any idea of how M lenses would play on this camera beside the crop factor of course ? Or do you think the actual Fuji lenses are on par then manual Leica lenses bring no IQ advantages and should go on craig list. (well that is just to say because I am not sure I will ever do that
3) When you set to 1:1, how is it displaid in the VF ? Just the square and black around it or frame lines over the full frame or else ? I love square format and I am probably one of the few funny guys around praising this setting.
As it is, this camera float my boat, if it had the Olympus IS and a flipping screen it would be ideal but I can wait another ten years before getting it.
If your pictures presented here are straight out of the box, then you have plenty to be pleased with, they are lovely.
Thanks for your answer.
