Hot or not? Silver XF35mmf2 on Black XT1

Recommended Posts

 

I ordered a black 35mm lens but got sent the silver version. What do you guys think? :P I think it's very odd.

 

 

Don't know if it's worth a thread but...

 

...IMHO it's ugly like hell! Think the silver version of this lens looks a bit cheaply. I would've sent it back and ordered the black version instead.

I don’t mind the look of a silver lens on black camera. In fact, I quite like it.

 

For this reason, I especially wanted the silver versions of the 8mm and 12mm Samyang.

 

As far as “ looks” go, the only thing that I have a slight issue with is the look of the 35mm f2 in combination with the X-T1 and the smallest of the lens hoods.

 

I think that the look is greatly enhanced with a vented lens hood. In that case I would get a black one ( Same effect of the 12mm in silver which also has a black lens hood).

I hardly ever have these kind of considerations, the cameras are mostly tools and I don't have any care if a hammer has a silver head or if it is fully black.

 

My only concern is "Does it change my pictures or not ?"

This doesn’t imply an value judgement form my part but I like to entertain the thought of being a moderately “ aesthetic" person. Perhaps not as strict and orthodox as he was, but somehow what William Morris wrote appeals to me.

 

“ Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful "

 

 

If possible , even with my modest means, I try to surround myself with things which please my eye, as much as I can possibly afford.

 

I have two hammers, one I found ( and I use it) and the other one I bought. The one I bought wasn’t very expensive but I chose one which I liked when I bought it.

 

I prefer using that one.
