Had some time to look at the new homes near us here in northern CA. Quick grabs with 14mm f2.8.

Defnitely something wider would be better.

Bobby you are the MAN!!!!!!!


Your first pic is literally the one thing that I needed to see that I couldn't on the internet anywhere.

Yes, I know wider is better, BUT you had a galley bathroom, got 3/4 of the vanity and the shower enclosure. You got enough, I can feel the bathroom. Funny you saying it is not wide enough, I know it isn't, I know when you are trying to get "a room" inside whatever lens that is on your camera doesn't feel wide enough a lot. That is why I have been grinding on this. Yes I know it will be too tight sometimes, but your shots look pretty clean, and I have been combing over images from the 14 and it seems like it is just a solid lens that has great lines/distortion control.

That bathroom shot was from just outside or at the doorway or in the bathroom? You are missing half of the second sink which I would presume has another 8" or so of vanity and then the throne has to be to your right after that? I am just trying to get an idea of real world FOV in a typical small bathroom. If you don't mind let me know how correct all that is. If it is more or less the case, I think that the 14 is a viable option.

These were town homes and bathroom in the first shot wasn't the master and quite small. I shot in right outside the door. 14mm is pretty distortion free. I just shot and cropped a tiny bit in LR. The newer single family homes weren't finished yet so couldn't take any shots there.

Just outside the door is the only way to shoot that. I was high hoping that maybe you were a step in hahaha. I gotta say, my mind says 12 samyang or zeiss or 10-20, it says that 14 is a weird no mans land FL that is going to be too wide for creative stuff and not wide enough for some work things that are ultimately dictating this acquisition. That said, my gut is telling me the 14 with the samyang in a close second. I am going gut on this one. Plus the FE is a matter of when not if. F2Bs links only pumped me up more on that. And sharing filter and hoods and caps with the 18-55 is a bonus.


Besides, Fuji seems more like an emotion system. Took this today, this is Fuji to me....my kiddo having fun with outlandish editing in NIK plug ins in LR and the moment captured and shared sooc with little thought. My whole recent Fuji venture has been whim more than reason and it has worked out well so far. 21mm for interiors, it is almost in between the 2 lenses I use now, if I can't make that work then that is really on me.

I have lost 5 auctions and missed out on a fred miranda deal since I have started my wide quest.....I am Not even frustrated, just staying patient. There seems to be quite a x system following so while not canon robust, there is a good amount of lenses circulating. Also seems to be a strong demand.

Looks soft to me...


The cat not the lens...heyooooo

And I can finally shut up about a wide angle. Sometime between mid morning and just now someone listed a BIN 14 in "better than excellent" condition for $450 shipped so I jumped on it. That was the kind of price I was trying to get in the 14 for to take away all second guesses. Hopefully I get it for the weekend.

Thanks :) She's a total sweetheart. Probably the most lap dependent cat I've ever known (to the point of annoyance sometimes). Unlike our other cat, who only likes to sit on my lap (and not my girlfriend's) and only when she isn't around and usually only for a few minutes at a time... here's a somewhat rare sighting of the two of them together :lol:

Haha, I know you were joking, but actually, for me all BBCode posted images from flickr look soft on here, I have to open the links to view them directly on flickr... threw me off for a long time until I realized my own pics were soft too when shared here.

I'm glad you've made a choice, I'm sure you'd be happy with any of the lenses you were debating ;) I too get stuck in those "which product do I buy!?" loops :lol:

Yeah, just happy to be out of that loop and moving forward.


And holy crap yes, everything here is compressed and not cool. I noticed as well, and the pic size is not even large. It is like softened across the whole frame, I have just ignored it and assumed pics here are all clean.

I read a few reviews that had the Sony and even Olympus omd as better mirrorless options. I sweated the process, but something drew me to Fuji and I was like screw it. I made the decision fresh off a review that was well done and had guji as worst between the 2 mentioned for various reasons, many technical, some aesthetic. It was a good review, but like I said, I was drawn to Fuji and photos are not about just getting spec paper dragons. It is important, and I like technically great things as much as next guy, but I came in skeptical and I am enammored with Fuji as a sheltered canon only user since I started.

I love my XT1, however I've done a few shoots where I have used the Fuji, and then taken the same shot with my D800 at comparable focal lengths and 7/10 times I usually prefer the Nikon's image.

The Fuji's rendition is definitely different, and I haven't quite put my finger on it yet. I need more time with the Fuji I think.
