I’ve had the X-E2 for a several months now and I have to say I’m impressed with the improvements over the X-E1. I’ve gone through the Fuji X100, X100s, and X-E1. Each one was returned to fund the next one. My least favorite of the bunch was always the X-E1 because of it’s lack of usability with the slow autofocus and controls. I also hated how light it felt in my hands. So in comes the X-E2, an X camera I knew I would love and hold onto. Truth be told, I loved the X100s, but I missed being able to change the lenses and I’m not made of money so I had to get rid of it for the X-E2.
The better autofocus, bigger screen, function buttons, and EVF have taken this camera to another level. If it weren’t for the new X-T1 announcement, I think I would have been content with this perfect little camera. But that’s just the GAS talking.
Over the years, I have honed in on my skills and style of photography. I enjoy long exposure work, landscape work, and adventure photography. All things you wouldn’t expect from the Fujifilm line up with their rangefinder looks and stellar street performance. Ever since the X cameras came along, I have been obsessed with mirror-less cameras. It is the future people! Who loves not having to carry DSLR’s and big heavy lenses? This gal! Whether I’m climbing up the side of a mountain, walking along the beach, or setting up the perfect shot, the Fujifilm X-E2 always gets the job done for me.
Here a couple of my favorite shots taken with the Fujifilm X-E2 with the 18-55mm lens using the lee seven5 filter system. Read more about my experiences with lee filters here.
