  1. Ji- saidIMHO prime lenses are more flexible than zoom lenses due to wider aperture possibilities on the field. I won't bother with heavier zoom (just my opinion and taste). IMHO, I think exactly the same. The problem with zoom is that they tend to give you a "lead as", moving the focal barrel and not moving your feet ... and with it changing the perspective of your sight. For me, moving my body favorises stronger images ... as long as you're not so customised with focal angles of view of lenses to consider a zoom as a distributor of lenses. So I usually go away with 2 lenses (when it's not with only one, then a 27mm on my XE2): usually a 23 and a 35 or 50mm, sometimes a 18 instead of the 23. And I move as largely as it's necessary to get the image I've in my mind. Yes, sometimes I can't succeed, but it's very rare. In the other way, my images are largely more different and efficient with a prime. And with the times, I've learned that contraints in gear make me more creative. When I had 6 or 8 lenses in my bag, I always was measuring what kind of lens I would use ... and forget to be creative in my OWN way making images I saw everywhere, not inventing them. And series done with one focal lens are more homogenous. A very interesting study I red many times: by Thom Hogan from his Nikon site: http://dslrbodies.com/lenses/lens-articles/choosing-lenses/choosing-a-simple-prime-kit.html
  2. The X-E2 is a major improvement compared to the X-E1, and, in second hand, could be in very good condition and not much more expensive ! The X-E2 is a very fine camera that will make the beginning in photography more easy, encouraging and pleasant. Note: X-E2 and X-E2s are the very very similar with the last firmware update
  3. and a very interesting plus: the mechanic shutter is quite totally silent!
  4. Not really but possibly a tiny improvement in low light shoots.
  5. I did that on July and I’ve not any regret. The XH1 is very well balanced in hand, specially with large lenses as the 90mm, as with any other, even the 27mm pancake. The weight is very acceptable and I find the holding largely better than the XT2. (without a grip) And Ibis is very efficient (it’s the reason I bought the XH1) + it’s very affordable actual discount price
  6. Thanks George_P. My firsts images with this lens show me a marvelous “modelė”, a very fine transition from focus to out focus and a very good but non aggressive sharpness. Even if the focal is a little stretch for what I used to, I think it will soon become to me as a favorite portrait lens.
  7. Is it a wariness suggested by Fujifilm?
  8. Thank you Greybeard. I'm reassured now. Finally, it's as a good deal as I supposed it to be. ;~)
  9. Do your X-E3 has the last firmware? For the lens it supposed because it’s not a recent one.
  10. I've just bought a second hand XF 90mm. It's in a perfect exterior aspect. It function apparently well, with an efficient AF, a perfect focusing symmetry ... But when I tilt it longitudinally (front lens up-down), I can ear a light "clock " (or "click" ?), as if lenses are moving inside. I know an equivalent noise in an IS lens, but the 90mm has no stabilisation system inside. Is it the same with a new lens? Thanks
