had a brief play with the 23/2 instore. You have to get in close but the dof control and bokeh is not bad imo. straight jpeg. I've long had a hankering for an X Pro, but am yet to pull the trigger on one (except for a very used Xpro1 that i bought off ebay many years ago that turned out to be defective and was returned after a day). Part of the appeal is the evf/ovf hybrid use and general styling, but its also Oly and Pana's refusal to weatherseal the small 1.8 primes. An Xpro with the 23/35/50 f2's would be a very neat weathersealed kit.

The same appeals to me as a Pen-F user, who enjoys the style, build quality, image quality and the ability to have a fairly compact, light kit of primes which cover are set range of focal lengths. Yet the number of weather sealed primes for MFT is pretty slim. Fujifilm on the other hand is even rumored to work on updated versions of their f1.4 primes to feature weather resistence. So far I've opted for the X100V instead of X-Pro cameras, for the more compact size and to get a better idea of the system. The hybrid viewfinder is fun and, while I surely use the EVF about 95% of the time, I also use the OVF every now and then, it has some benefits of it's own and since you are able to quickly switch between EVF and OVF, I can easily check my exposure beforehand and then use the OVF.

The 23mm f2 is said to be pretty weak and soft for close-ups, I can't comment on that, but it's been stated a number of times on the web, once you get past the minimum focus distance, things get better very quickly.

Love the first one, Phill. The foreground looks like brush strokes on a canvas.
Thanks for the kind words, I love the evening hours in the spring, especially when the light of the setting sun gets diffused by some clouds and the wind is rustling through the grain fields.

Now I have a rural bus stop to share, which caught my attention while I was cycling through a small, local settlement. These pretty beefy concrete bus stops have been not uncommon in former East Germany. I thought it was cool seeing this one not only still standing, but also being rather clean and intact. Usually the windows are smashed, they are covered in all kinds of graffiti and there is junk and trash laying around.
The image again was processed with C1 Express, although I have to say it wasn't completely needed, as the ooc jpg looked quite nice already.

Panasonic recently came out with an updated 50/1.4ii lens which is weather sealed.

Indulging myself a little here.
Fuji 10-24 and 50-140...probably would be my two most favorite lenses....if they were smaller and lighter! :laugh:

First images with the tiny XF1 and its 2/3” x-trans sensor. I love it! This camera is serving its purpose already, as I had it in my shorts pocket while I walked Nacho down the street to the local dog park.
