Hi everyone, This is my first post here. I'm in doubt about selecting the right lens, so I calling for your help. This is my situation: What I usually shoot: - Travel - Family (two children) - Street and daily life - Portrait (not often) - No video Most of the time I shoot with hand held and no flash, so I think OIS is a big benefit. I also prefer fast AF, so manual focus lens is out of sort list. Of course f/1.4 is ideal for hand held but I can live with f/2, no big deal. The most important factor is fast and lightweight. I only print pictures in small size, so image quality and sharpness is not critical. However I don’t use Photoshop so I prefer no retouching, just use the JPG images right out of camera, maybe just crop/rotate if need. I also can live with noise of high ISO. Currently I use a XE3 with 23mm f/2 and super happy with this combo. Thinking about add one or two lenses because sometime I see 23mm is not wide enough (small room, group picture, or on a mountain that I can't step back), sometime it is too wide (family portrait, children playing around). So I see two options: Option 1 - zoom lens, buy one of these - 18-55 f/2.8-4: A lot of recommendation on this lens. It's cheap and has OIS. I just wonder if 18 is wide enough? - Waiting for 16-80 f/4: has OIS, fast AF (hopefully), 80mm for portrait is better than 55mm. Internal zoom and WR also very nice for long term investment. - 16-55 f/2.8: this one is expensive and way too big to go with XE3, and no OIS. - 18-135 f/3.5-5.6: Slow aperture, and 135mm is too long for me. I'd rather have 16mm. Also many negative review about this lens. Option 2 - buy two prime lens - 16 f/2.8 and 50 f/2: Fast AF, fast aperture, lightweight, optical excellence and WR. Super match with 23 f/2. But no OIS and cost a bit more money. Would you please share your experience? What do you recommend? Thank you very much! JK.
Hello! I recently bough an X-E3 and I am really happy with it! I want to buy a leather case for it though, both since I like the feel of it and because it looks better (and hopefully also protect the camera a bit), and I have been looking around. I was using the fujifilm original leather case for my old X70, and I really liked that one. Does anyone have the fujifilm BLC-XE3 for your camera? Are you happy with it? From what I can see on pictures, the case is not attached to the camera in the tripod socket, but just with buttons over the strap metal thingies, is this the case? Is it still a good fit? Is the strap that comes with it in leather as well? I find surprisingly little information about this case on the internet - no reviews, no youtube videos and almost no one talking about it.. If not this one, what do you use? Thanks!
