Sad to say our new little cat is no more, she really liked going for long walks with us and also being a squirrel from time to time. A car. We are all sad here.

Yesterday.

I'm so sorry to hear that, I would be pretty crushed if I lost either of my little fur-balls :(

Sad news. One of the best things about our pets is that they remind us to appreciate living for the moment.

And now for a little levity. A couple months ago I stayed for a weekend at a Buddhist center. I was thrilled to discover the cottage was appointed with "knotty" sheets.

This was a really hard shoot. Condo that was not well lit with light dumping in windows, super shiney and reflective surfaces and just tough circumstances. I think the Fuji and 14 did well, but this is where I just wish it was a FF sensor and it would be the perfect camera. Nonetheless, the tradeoff for having an easy to carry and low key instrument still I think outweighs the Drawbacks in DR. Anyway, here is what I ended up with.

I thought Fuji with Sony sensor would have given nice DR. You can definitely pull up shadows on Sony sensors a lot more.

Thanks a lot guys.... after the 18mm discussions I read here recently, I found myself wanting one... I found one brand new on eBay (although from Thailand, so I guess technically grey market) for $265. At that price I figured I could live with that. Should be here in a month lol.

It has awesome latitude in post, and the highlight, and i wasn't trying to complain at all, just saying that literally if the xe2 had a FF sensor it would be the perfect camera in my eyes, imlike it that much.

Tomorrow I am shooting a friends house we did. I am going to not be in my usual situations and in a nice and relaxed and cool setting. She wants the pics, I was planning on using the 6d all the way, but I am thinking about shooting it with the 6d/24L and X-e2/14 and then I can compare everything, from use in the house/shooting, to editing ease, and then obviously final pics. Could be interesting.

Eh, I don't know about "a lot more". I found the DR between my a7S and Fuji's to be basically splitting hairs. Both give you more room than most people will ever really need. I remember the first time I pulled down the exposure by over 2 stops in a Fuji file and still had detail... that was the most mind blowing thing for me. The shadow recovery is nice, but the highlight recovery is leaps and bounds ahead of what I could do with my 6D.

Not sure if I had any influence there since I praise that lens constantly... but I won't apologize if I did influence that decision because it's a fantastic lens that you won't regret purchasing ;)

Eh, it would lose a lot of it's magic if it were FF though. It'd be larger, the lenses would be larger, all of it would be heavier... not by a huge amount, but enough to make a difference. Honestly after owning an a7S/a7R and X-E2 at the same time I realized that the APS-C X-Trans is close enough to FF that it's not worth fussing over in my opinion.

You may be surprised. Stuff like that was why I came to my above conclusion. I was a firm believer that FF was the only way to go, wouldn't take much digging to find posts of me saying things to that accord... but after shooting them both back to back and even now going back and browsing through all my old shots on Flickr, most of the shots I really love are from my Fuji's... there's just something special about the way they render.

I agree on size and lens size and losing it's magic 100%, that was just a cake and eat it too about how nothing changing at all but it having a FF sensor would be nice. Although I am curious what I get today, I am wondering if the 6d interior shots are that much better, it has been a while since I used it that comment was on some assumption. I know the ISO is better to go farther and clean up, and the couple other differences I have noticed don't apply to interior. Really curious as to how this plays out.

I think the 14 Fuji is seriously good enough to go against the 24 to where the my initial thoughts are that the better photos will simply be the better shots with all non camera realated things will mean more. I think I will find that editing the canon files in raw will show more resolution (Duh, my Fuji is only the 16mp one), but it will only be just noticeable on screen when working on one after the other. imthink for what I do with available light, the ISO cleanliness is also going to stand out. That is really all, except I think that I may leave this loving the Fuji even more.

Over the winter we popped out for a walk and a few shots, X-E2 with a Zeiss 35mm F/2.4 attached - one of my old m42 lenses & it is amazingly easy to use, especially with a camera like Fuji make nowadays.

Does anyone have any of the Meike/Neewer primes? I might pick up the 50mm f2 just to see if it's at all decent, might be a fun lens to play around with for $80.
