Fujirumors readers roundup

Olivier: “Hi Patrick, a big HELLO from tiny Luxembourg :-) I’ve been following Fujirumors ever since my interest in Fujifilm cameras arose, with the announcement of the fantastic X-E1 last year.

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a morning shooting an old industry and railway park with my best friend who carried along 4 (!!!) Sony Alpha bodies (he hates changing lenses ;-) ), while I only took along the X-E1 equipped with the XF18-55mm lens, the [shoplink 11322]XF 35mm[/shoplink] and [shoplink 11919]XF 60mm[/shoplink].

In the end though, I only used the [shoplink 12483 ebay]XF 18-55mm[/shoplink]. This is one seriously great allrounder!

As far as postprocessing goes: I shot raw and (minimally) edited the shots under LR 4.4. Really love the improved X-Trans support.

The results can be found under: (short excerpt) and (complete book). I hope you’ll enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed taking them ;-)

Best regards, Oli

P.s. Thanks again for all of the hard work you put into Fujirumors!!! :-)
