A couple weeks shooting the Fujifilm X-T2

It has been two weeks since my Fujifilm X-T2 arrived. I have to say, I am not normally impressed so quickly with a piece of gear. I have been putting it through its paces, and finding I love the RAW files it produces. When I went to Finland, I was restricted to the 35mm F2 (50mm equivalent), which is a nice lens but felt rather restrictive as I tend to shoot wider angles. 

Since I have been back I have sold my X-T1, and purchased the 23mm F2 lens (35mm equivalent). This lens is much better suited to my tastes, although still not as wide as I normally shoot. Paired with the X-T2, the 23mm F2 is a bit of a beast when it comes to street photography. Quiet, fast autofocus (if anyone needs it- I shoot mostly manual), and fairly small for an F2 lens. 

I recently put both through their paces on a street photography session in London. I visited Brick Lane, some of embankment, and St Katherine's dock. The 23mm F2 renders both B&W and Colour superbly, and the X-T2 makes it very easy to shoot street. 

I forsee good things ahead with this set up. I would love the 16mm F1.4, and perhaps the 18-135mm for travel purposes. But for street, the 23mm f2 is a fantastic lens. 

Until next time - have a good one!
