    Beautiful pictures! My first Fujifilm camera is in the mail (X-E2) and I’m killing myself over lens choices. I’m really trying to decide between the 23mm and the 35mm. The 35 f/2 is something else — the size, the weight, the price. But I wonder if I will miss the wider field of view.

    Thanks for the great post!

      Thanks Brandon and welcome to Fuji world.

      In fact, the choice of lenses is never an easy task. And I had the exact same problem, I was undecided between 23mm and 35mm. I ended up buying the 35mm, but do not know if I’ll be a long time without the 23mm. Personally I like the wide-angle. Regarding the 35mm it is all you have certainly heard. It is fast to focus, very quiet, light and the images are really detailed. I think for that price is almost a mandatory lense. But … yes, there is a but, at least on my part.

      If my set of lenses were another and had to choose only one of the two, almost certainly that would go to the 23mm. But I recognize that each has its purpose and should be part of any backpack.

        Thanks for the comments! I just picked up the X-E2 in the mail and the battery is charging now. Next step: firmware updates.

    Hello! Great photos there. I just sold my X-E1 and I’m waiting for my X-T1. Did you use an ND filter for those 35mm shots as well?

      Thank you.

      At the photographs taken with the Fuji 35mm not have used any filter.

    Great article. What filter brand are you using. I have been looking to add Nd filters like you are using but cannot decide between Lee and Konos. Big price differences.

      Thank you Elliot. I’ve been using Hitech (ND Grad) and Lee Filters (ND). But after 7 years, it’s time to change the Hitech filters. With so much use, they are already with some scratches…

      And, perhaps, i go completely to Lee… or then again to Hitech.

        thanks for the feedback on the filters. Did not think about the Hitachi.

    Hello! I’m using x-e2s and was searching many reviews of XF 14mm f2.8. Your review was very helpful to me. Thank you!
