    “In conclusion, I can highly recommend the X-E3…”

    I’m a late adapter to the X-E3, having used the XPro2 and X-T2 for a couple of years. I can concur with your testimonial to its capability. My ego made me get the upper level cameras initially and they are great, but the petite X-E3 is being taken out most often lately when I go out for general photography. It has the same sensor and processor as the other two cameras in my stable, but at a fraction of the weight and size. Now after using the X-E3 for some time, my XPro2 feels huge.

      Hello Albert!

      I hear what you’re saying! I probably would stick to the x-E3 if it was weather sealed since i bring it everywhere and might fall on my bike. I know the X-Pro3 is bigger, but i used to cary around a canon 7D all the time so it is still a decent size 🙂

        Yeah… the X Pro series is bigger than the X-E3, but its smaller and lighter than my Nikon full frame, even with a 50mm equivalent.

        All the X-series fujis are a joy after DSLRs.

        You will like the 23mm f/2, even on the X-E3 it is quick and sure to focus and that extra stop of light can’t hurt.

          I hear you! They sure are! Looking forward to it. Thinking of selling the x-e3 with the 18-55 since i hardly use it, to get some more cash towards the x-pro3

    Hey Gustaf,

    Great photos my friend, and I loved hearing your story. I shot with the 27mm for a long time too (mainly on the XT20) and totally agree with you regarding its size – how could anyone feel threatened by that stumpy little thing haha!

    I then went to the 23mm f2 (on my XT3) and can assure you that you’ll appreciate and still enjoy it.

    Here’s a little sample from last weekend: https://www.driftwoodjournals.com/sarah-drives-a-photo-journal-fuji-xt3-23mm-f2/

    It’s just as sharp but you get much better depth, and it’s still a tiny and un-intimidating lens. I’m actually thinking of selling my 27mm now as I never used it (although I can’t actually bring myself to part with it).

    Anyhow, I will look forward to seeing more of your images and hearing how you get along with your new setup.

    Until then,

    Ben

    Hi Ben!

    Thank you for taking your time to read my article! I’m really glad you like my work and the article! I checked you blog too, looks really nice! Will spend some time there too, for sure!

    I’m looking forward to the new set up with the 23mm. Just need a new job 🙂
    I think I will keep the 27mm or get the updated version when, or if, it comes along!

    Keep up the good work!
