    NorAndFey got a reaction from meloaku in If you only had 3-4 fuji lenses what would they be?   
    - 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS
    - 10-24mm f/4 OIS
    - 18mm f/2
    - 35mm f/1.4
     
    That's my kit right now, and I'm quite happy with it. Though maybe I will exchange my primes into 23mm f/2 and 56mm f/1.2 in the future, which I think will suite me better.

    NorAndFey got a reaction from mickphoto in Anyone else is hoping for a 16-80 f4?   
    Try to be a little more gentle, and a little less bastant, when laying down your words. It's an un-important discussion-topic on the internett. 
     
    I think it's very possible to make a quality 16-70/80mm f/4 lens with 62mm filter thread. Do you think the biggest lens element on such a lens has to have the same dimensions as the 10-24mm f/4?
     
    Comparing Mirrorless APS-C-size lenses with SLR APS-C-size lenses isn't fair. Mirrorless lenses can be built a lot smaller (with the same specs). The Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS has 58mm filter thread. That lens is one stop brighter, way better optically, and way better built, than the typically APS-C SLR-kitlenses. For example Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. But they have the same sized filter thread. 
     
    I think decreasing the aperture to f/4 on the wide end + giving it the 2mm extra wideness, will even out each other. When Fujifilm can make a good quality 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS zoom lens with 58mm, I also think it's possible for them to make a good quality 16-55mm f/4 OIS with 58mm. And then they will have something to play with for the rest of the reach.

    The key for me is that it must be smaller and lighter than the 18-135mm, still with OIS. If it will fit somewhere in between the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 and the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, it would be great. Well. Like some said. At the size and weight of the 10-24mm. But give it 62mm filter diameter.

    Nevertheless you won't take too many primes for travelling and you don't have time to swap lenses in street photography. I'd say 35 is unnecessary if you already have 23 and 50. When I need two fast primes for fast photography I take X100S and XF 56

    Of course, I see your point over there, but when we now got the ability too shoot at ISO 3200 with great results. Why not take advantage of it, in combination with fast primes? Instead of thinking of how impossible that was 20 years ago.

    NorAndFey got a reaction from CRAusmus in Going to Europe - 14/2.8 vs 10-24/4?   
    I think the 14mm f/2.8 is a perfect companion to the 18-55mm f/2.8-4. For me, it gives me the extra wideness when I need it. Bonus: it shares both the filter size and lens hood with the latter.
     
    It's wide enough for most of European cities. Of course, that's my humble opinion.
     
    14mm + 18-55mm is the perfect Fuji light travel kit. Maybe ad the 35mm prime for extra low light goodness.

    NorAndFey got a reaction from CRAusmus in Have both X100S/T and 23mm 1.4?   
    I love having the X100T, and a X-T1 with either 14mm or 56mm. Great combo. I'm planning on adding the TCL for the X100T, so it can be a bit more versatile in combo with the 14mm.
     
    Keep the X100s. It's so great when you will travel light with only one camera and no hassle.
     
    The 23mm f/1,4 is great, but I think you will miss the compactness of the X100s if you sell it.

    I don't really understand what you're trying to tell with those ancient pictures. 
     
     
     
    You are posting pictures that could have been taken with a cell phone nowadays. Or maybe a paper-piece with a hole and some light. 
     
    It's not about the gear, but the photographer who captures the photo, with the equipment he or her had at that time. 
     
    This photography of human movement is great in many ways. It's great because it's creative, well composed, shows some human movements. Ahead of it's time. Imagine how good this picture could have been with todays technology. And even if you do not like it the new way, you could have made it close to this old photo-look in your software. 
     
    Maybe we can agree to disagree

    Well, 100 years ago, people weren't trying to shoot moody artists in sticky-floored goth metal clubs with nothing but a dying fluorescent strip light from the next room lighting the scene.

    But yes, to put it in a less snarky fashion, I'm never going to cripple my own shooting if a more suitable option is available. I delayed moving to digital because I preferred shooting film (and I went back to film a few years ago), and I have a lot of experience shooting medium-format and large-format film. I know what it means to have a slow system with strictly limited ASA!
    It's the year 2015, though, and we have lots of advantages now which we might as well make use of. For me, that most often means using a faster lens wide open, which is where the 14mm starts to have issues. It's sharp as a wide-angle gets and f/2.8 is fast by general standards, but when even f/1.4 isn't quite giving you enough light, f/2.8 starts to feel like a real hinderance. But like I said, that's just me. It doesn't mean the 14mm is an incapable lens for most people, and it absolutely should find a place in most peoples' kit bags.
     
    Now, a 14mm f/2? I'd be all over that. Gimmie gimmie gimmie. That'd be enough, I could get use out of that. That's one of those few lenses I'd really pay top whack for.
