Indeed!
It seems to have been overshadowed a bit by the 56/1.2 though, but with the images that I've seen from the 56/1.2, I'm not surprised people are loving the 56/1.2 as well!

Would anyone be interested in trading their X-E1 18-55 Kit (or 35mm, 55-200) for an X-PRO1?

I only used the OVF in the X-PRO1 for street photography. When I got the X100S, it replaced the X-PRO1 for my main street needs. So I figured that since I only need an EVF, I could sell or trade the more expensive X-PRO1 for both the X-E1 and a lens I want.

Please PM if you're interested.

Thanks.

Anyone knows of comparisons between Fuji 14mm and Zeiss 12mm? Now with that new Samyang 12 f2 i am highly intrigued.

From what I've read the two are very close, but I think the Zeiss has the overall edge for sharpness across the frame. I'm waiting for a review of the new Samyang, looks more interesting than either due to the price and faster aperture :cool: Don't need AF in a UWA imo.

Pieced together what I will be purchasing in the beginning of April after selling my 6D and gear. I will get the x-t1 (body only), and for lenses I will start off with the primes (14, 35, 60). Excited to get my hands on this one since I can ditch out the heavier gear.

Don't underestimate the 18-55. It is a damn good lens to use. The 60 is not a fast lens. The 35mm is one of my favorite prime lenses with the 56mm

^ agreed on the 18-55. I bought the kit with my XE1 because it was so cheap at the time. I figured I'd punt the 18-55 to the curb to reduce the body price even more but I actually really like it. It's basically a 24-105L but better and faster at the wide end. The other aspect to consider is the fujis run out of shutter speed if you want to shoot wide open thanks to the 1/4000th and 200 ISO limits. So unless you add a ND into the mix you'll be capped at 2.8~4 anyway outside in daylight, so the zoom makes that a lot easier to handle. The 14mm is amazing. The 35mm is also fantastic. it's only issue is it's AF seems slow now in comparison to the 23 and 56. The 60, while it's IQ is fantastic it's AF is really damn slow. It's also slow aperture wise. Basically make sure the 60 is cheap, otherwise the 56 is the better lens unless you're a macro person.

True I will think about it. Only reason why I considered the 60 was because I liked the quality from the efs 60 macro and was wondering if it's the same. I don't really do that much macro but on occasion I'll mess around with it. I'll probably just wait and save up for the 56mm instead after seeing how I adjust with the camera

+1 for the 18-55mm, to my surprise I think I actually like it more than the 35mm and I hated my 24-105L.

One thing to consider. Focusing distance
56mm = 70 centimeter
60mm = 27 centimeter

For close up and Macro the 60 is for me the beter choice. I have both. When I want to focus really close I use the 60mm

I keep getting drawn to the idea of ditching the canon gear and getting an xt1 + 23/1.4 + 56/1.2 + 10-24/4. That way I'm replicating my current 35/85 fov and would have the 10-24 for landscape work (would sell my lee filters though and replace with the smaller versions).

I'm just a bit scared to take the plunge though and I don't quite know why

I was able to pick up the 27mm at my favorite local shop before our vacation. This spent the entire time on my X-E1 and I really appreciated the small size, portability, fast focus and great picture quality.

Click on the image below to see some simple snapshots and impressions of the Fuji pancake while on vacation.
