    Thanks for the article!
    I love my 16-55. It’s a bit banged up now, so I’m thinking about getting a new one (or a new second hand one). It’s an beast of a lens and works for basically everything.
    I’ve noticed I tend to shoot wider, so I usually end up doing a lot of panos with it, or grabbing the 10-24mm f4.
    I’ve noticed on your photos that you’ve got the 70-300 there? How is it? I really want to test it for travelling. 16-55 + 70-300 seems like a great travel combination. I love my 50-140, but it’s super heavy.

      Hi Kevin, Sorry for the delay in replying, I see you are using the xf16-55mm. I think the xf70-300mm is lighter, has great image quality, and is weather resistant. It’s the perfect combination for travel! And since you can get as close as 83cm in the entire range, you can use it like a half macro!

    Wow those are some great images you submitted. They are uniformly sharp and all seem to have wonderful 3D pop! Please keep sharing.

    Love your images. I too have been hooked on the Fuji Colours since my first XE-1 and love the rangefinder style of camera. I travel all over the world with my two XE-3’s to produce my annual Fly Fishing Dreams Calendar and normally spend the winters in New Zealand, my winter home for decades. I live in Armstrong and swim in Vernon every morning when I’m in town. Check out my postings on Instagram.

    I too love the J-Pegs. I usually shoot both RAW and J-Peg and more often than not, choose the J-Peg over the RAW.

At the beginning it was a Canon s540 then Lumix z17 then Olympus e510,then Nikon D90 ( stilo have it but i’m the closet), Fujifilm X30 and now XT 30. The path was winding and long but i’m the end I found happines. My spine said thanks to me;) Congrats on excellent shots.
