    I once met a photographer who only shot with a 35mm lens and I never really understood it. I never felt the way he did with my Canon and the insanely good 35 1.4 II. It was just too heavy, too long – dare I say – too shallow. Yet the 35 on the X100V feels familiar and at home. It feels effortless and natural.

    At first, I was very confused because the X100V has a 23mm lens. Then I realised that you were writing as though we had understood that you were referring to the FF equivalent. Very very very confusing to read.

      How could this possibly be confusing? Canon never made 1 35mm f1.4 DX (APSC) lens – of course he is talking about full frame. And in only one image did he appear to be closer than 6ft and that guy has a mask on.

        The article is about Fuji X100V, which has a 23mm lens.

        He even wrote:

        Yet the 35 on the X100V feels familiar and at home.

        Why can no one admit that what is written is incorrect?

          you do realize that the 23mm APS-C is equivalent to a 35mm full frame?

        From the article:

        “… the 35 on the X100V feels familiar and at home. It feels effortless and natural.”

        Does the X100V have a 35mm lens?

    One more thing. Stay home! Social distance. I can tell from these shots that you are way too close to people.

      Wow Khurt – you are a grumpy one aren’t you? How about just appreciating this wonderful story and pictures for what they are – instead of reading something negative into them. It’s great to see somebody out and about in these miserable times of lockdown – bringing a perspective of cheer and good will, instead of the usual negativity that is about today. Don’t spoil it!

        What’s negative about saying “follow social distancing guidelines” and “please stay home”?

        I am sorry that photography is affected by these rules. But casual photography isn’t essential.

    I have a 5D3, but have been pining over an X-100V for some time. I recently bought an X-E3 and a 23 f/2 for my son’s 18th and it’s a great little camera. I keep trying to tell myself there is nothing the Fuji can do that my Canon can do, but…… that’s not helping. Your piece read like a Fuji love letter. You probably cost me $1800 for camera and accessories.
