(I was not sure if I should post this in the X-M1 / X-A1 / X-A2 category or in the lens category. I apologise if I got this wrong.)
I’m on a bit of a budget, but I decided to get into the Fujifilm system. I found a used X-M1 in great condition that I got for a good price, thinking that I could get something more fancy later when my budget will allow it.
In the mean time, I want at least once good all-around prime. I got my eye on the Fujifilm XF23mm f2. It’s plenty fast for me and the image quality seem great. However, I am bit unsure whether it will balance well on my diminutive X-M1. Now, the obvious alternative is the XF27mm, but it does not have a aperture ring, which I find to be a pretty big bummer, as that is one of the things that really exite me about the Fuji X system.
So, I my question is, how does the XF 23mm f2 balance on X-M1 in use? I don’t care about pockability. I have also ordered a thumb grip for it, if that makes a difference. How comfortable is it? Can you hold it with one hand without fear of the lens’ weight damaging the camera?
And out of curiosity: how does Fuji’s primes in general balance on the X-M1 / X-A1 / X-A2 cameras?
