    Love the pictures.
    One question; The Fuji XF10-24mmF4R is one of the lenses I am considering myself. Looking at the images in this article, you seem to be using the lense primarily on the vide end? Or is it just the selection here? My thinking is that if people tend to be using the lense at the wide end, a Samyang 12mm may be an option to consider. Any thoughts on this?

      It is an interesting question KaffeGlad with the potential tradeoff being that you would be shooting a fixed prime versus the range possible with the XF10-24. This lens is very sharp and contrasty, corner to corner, and across its zoom range. The Samyang will just give you a fixed 18 albeit it at a faster f2.0, but with AF. For me personally I like the dedicated primes like the XF14mm and might like a fixed 18 but would want the Af capabilities. In the end the performance of the of XF10-24, its sharpness, and range wins out for me. Of course Andy may have some different thoughts.

      Thanks for the comments, glad you like the images. It’s a special place.

      Well personally I just like to shoot landscape super wide…I always have. I do occasionally shoot at the other end of the zoom, particularly when I’m shooting travel/street work (this trip was totally landscapes) and for panoramas (there’s one in the article at 24mm. Shooting panos really wide makes stitching tricky as the images distort away from the centre).

      It depends on whether 12mm is wide enough for you. I’m not sure it would be for me. I have the 14mm but I rarely use it as it just doesn’t give me the wide angle feel that I love. The fast aperture makes it useful for stars, but that’s not enough for me to regularly carry it.

      If there were a 10mm prime I’d probably but it in a heartbeat, especially if it were f2.8…but as it is, for me the 10-24 is the best option for shooting wide and is probably the lens I use for 70% of my landscapes….mostly at 10mm.

      Not sure if that helps.
