    Thank you, Guillaume.
    I’m working on incorporating some of Saul Leiter’s stylistic choices and techniques in my own work. Your article really emphasized some important aspects. It also made me want to get an old, long lens 🙂 – Too bad shooting with focus peaking isn’t that much fun with the X-T5 since the outlines don’t go away when you half-press the shutter. I might get an X-T1 or 2 just for manual shooting purposes.

      Hey, and thanks!
      I didn’t know the X-T5 still shows the outline when you half-press the shutter. In fact, I would have liked that ahaha, but I guess everyone has their preferences.
      You could easily find a Canon FD lens, or a M42 longer lens like the Takumar 135mm, which is a very nice addition to a kit!

    Hi Guillaume
    Thanks for the article.
    I Currently have a X-T5, X-T2 and still have a Minolta X700 working very well with many lenses and an MD-FX adapter.
    I’ll certainly try to find some good mixes (camera/lens) and maybe there the result sometimes
