Wha...??? :-D

Was that on purpose? Or your 60 macro prefers to focus infinity?

Not on purpose..... It seems to lock focus on other things than what i see in the OVF as a green locked focus.
In EVF it works fine.

I picked up an X-Pro1 recently as well. (BTW, bent toe, I've been a fan of your work for a while - keep it up and I'm happy you're with Fuji!)

I had an X-T1, and it took beautiful photographs, but I didn't meld with it. I prefer the chunky and sexy styling of the X-Pro1, it's solid build, it's OVF/EVF combo and generally its "rangefinder style" layout. Maybe it's my big nose smashing into the LCD with the X-T1 that got me fed up with it. I'm still thinking that the X-Pro2 will be my ultimate camera.

Anyway, here are a couple of recent shots using the 35mm. I also have an X100T that I'm in love with and shoot with a lot.

Thank you, appreciate it a lot.
Im in the same boat as you, love the x-pro 1 because of it’s style and OVF.
Great shots, especially the one on your child, love the light.

While im writing, ive been shooting some more with the 60mm today and realised that it works a bit different from the 35 due to the reach. Ive managed to get almost all shots in focus today.
It is quirky but damn it producesses some awesome sharp photos. The 60mm is growing on me...

In EVF it works fine.

The green point is not very accurate when subject is very close to the camera. I avoid OVF for subject closer than 5-8 feet. The green predictive focus points seem to like greater distances.

On the contrary, it seems to have more problems locking on subjects further away, i've taken photos of both my son and the dog from a distance and it's more likely to miss the focus than if they are closer.

The tiny green focus square was green on my sons head...

To solve this i either have to shot at f/5.6 or higher or move the subject much closer in the frame.. or use the EVF all the time.

I ordered it yesterday while Fuji have their cashback campaign.

Cashback? Did you mean Instant Rebate?

No idea, it's called Cashback here in Sweden

Ok. Then I have a different focusing character on mine. I had front/back mis-focus the last time I tried on children standing in a diagonal row away from me. I could not get the eye in focus. I was about 3 feet away from the subject.

I usually rely on the evf unless I have the time to enjoy shooting on the ovf.

Returned it today..

Very sharp lens, good quality...but the missed AF pissed me off.

Oh well, time to save for the 56mm

I think you will be a lot happier with 56. For macro work just pick up a low price old legacy lens with an adapter - since manual focus is preferred for macro anyway.... just my 2 cents

The 56 is great, I think you'll really like it. I actually just picked up the 18mm today. I wanted a wider angle that was still light weight. Heading out hiking tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to checking out how it performs on the X-Pro1.

Hi both, have you compared the 60mm to the 56mm ? I was thinking of getting a longer lens for mine as I only have a 18/35 combo. I'm not bothered about cost, just the best lens for that focal length. I shoot my 35 at F2 to F2.8 and would probably do the same with the longer lens too. How much quicker is the 56mm to focus that the 60mm, and what about accuracy ?

@ Bent Toe, I have many many missed shots like you posted. I hadn't noticed a pattern, but, I've since slowed down and am using single shot ( even on slow moving subjects like my 2 year old ) which seems to fare better than continuous focus ( which I used exclusively on my 7D ).

Anyone using filters ? I had the Hitech Colby Brown landscape set. They were "used" when they should have been brand new. I paid over £200 for them and ended up sending them back. It's why I've hardly used my X Pro1, I initially got it as a walkaround carry everywhere camera due to having a baby and lots of other things to carry too.

Thanks


Ian
