    Speaking of lenses.

    Amazon won't ship the Panasonic 20mm to Sweden.

    Christmas ruined

    Just raised a decent sum for charity by printing and selling a book of photos, it was hard work but very rewarding.

    Here's the set that made up the book: 3 Balls 2.50

    Just came back with a second hand Panasonic 20mm pancake
    Hmmm... this is the lens I should have had all along.

    Is that the F1.7 for the 4/3rds system? If so, enjoy! Got it for my GF1 and have stuck with it, it's a lovely lens :-)

    Nice work! I particularly like the one of the catering van with the fireworks in the background.

    Are they X100 Nth? I can't keep track of what cameras you have at any one time. Thought you got rid of that?

    Yep, that's the one. I opted for the 14mm pancake initially and although I love the wider angle the low light capabilities of the 20mm blew me away.

    I'm hankering after the Sigma 35 1.4 but it'd mean me spending a lot more on myself than my wife this Christmas and the guilt is holding me back - for the moment at least.

    I'm looking at the X100S and XPro-1 at the moment. I'd like it as a casual walkaround camera mainly, as hauling my 5D2 around is not ideal, so the X100S appeals because it fits this bill and the auto-focusing issue from the X100 seems to be a thing of the past.

    However, the XPro1 is now the same price, if not cheaper than the X100S, and I'm wondering if the added flexibility of popping other lenses on it is something I'd value.

    I'm leaning towards the X100S as it's (relatively) compact and feels like a finished article, whereas the XPro1 has a few niggles.

    Any thoughts chaps?

    X100S all the way. The lens is matched to the sensor and is AMAZING. What they did with the X50 surprised me enough to trust the idea that a compact walkabout fixed lens design is the way to go.

    You've already got an interchangeable lens camera after all.

    To clarify I sold my original X100 as I wasn't using it much and the AF was frustrating. The new firmware was a surprise to everyone and made a huge difference so I bought another one on eBay and its everything I wanted it to be originally. I've not used an S but I can't see how it's worth double what an original would cost you. I shot the whole of my project with it and could never have done that with the old firmware.

    Those cheap X-Pro 1 deals are tempting but it's the oldest body now and a long way from what the X-E2 is capable of.

    One of the best things about the X100 is that you can't change anything lens wise (apart from that wide adaptor but let's forget that ;)

    I found a nice place for people to display their photos online. Impressively easy to use and with an alright payment model.

    I put this together as a test and I'm pleased with the result : https://thekmf.exposure.so/silent-beijing

    Beats looking at my images in the preview slide show.

    Select a size to get out of the lightbox viewer thing and you should be able to copy the url or open it in a new tab and copy from there.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Just took a few pictures of some stuff in the room and messed around a bit with GIMP. Sorry for shoddy image quality, smartphone cam at night and very q'n'd editing. And amateur.

    I hate the fact that I take almost all photos with my mobile phone nowadays. It's just so bloody convenient to have the instant ability to share pictures with my family (as all green parents I mostly take pictures of my kids).

    I love my real camera and I got that awesome 20mm for it but I'm too lazy to get the pictures of it and onto something that I use.

    Well well. At least we have made a tradition of making a photo book at the end of every year so I do get to reap the benefits of high quality images.

    But sadly it means that I don't have anything to show in this thread. Well. it's mostly pictures of laughing/crying/messy/cute kids anyway so you'd be bored.

    I've lost count of how many times I've looked at a picture on my phone and thought "That's not half bad" only to see it on my big screen later on and be shocked by all the noise.

    Vacation coming up. Will make an effort to upload some pictures after that.

    Mirrorless here I come. Fuji X-E1 arriving tomorrow and the Nikon will go. The X100 has changed my photography and to have an X-E1 as a companion to it will be great.

    While I'm here, blog about a workshop I did yesterday and a great story thats developed further today.

    Nice one Nth! That sounds like great fun. Love the chance meeting - what a great result for your first attempt! Could've been an axe murderer and you got a pro 'tog :D

    I've never done a photography workshop - always been put off by the costs when I think I could probably get the skills myself by doing more photography. But, I realise that is probably a horribly naive view.

    How much does he charge normally?

    I recently switched to Fujifilm too. Got an X-E2 a couple of weeks ago. I mainly switched because of the lens choice on the Sony NEX platform, but the Fuji cameras are damn good too. There's a great cashback deal on at the moment that means I've effectively got the 350 27mm f2.8 pancake lens for 50.

    Yes, waiting now for X-E1 with 18-55 to arrive. 689, with a free 50-230 via voucher. The 35 1.4 is 409 but I get 100 back on that too. Will cost me about 300 to switch I think, and my X100 is effectively my 35 f2 prime.

    Tomo - I was lucky as it because it was for the mag it cost us nothing. He normally charges 180 I think but for a longer day than we had.

    Back from the holidays - I took several cameras with me, but ended up taking 90% of my photos with the Sigma. Battery life aside, the camera is a joy to use, and the sharpness and detail resolution, as well as the often almost three-simensional look of the photos, continue to amaze me.

    I sold my Sony stuff and some Canon gear and got the X-E2 with the 18-55mm. It's a fantastic lens - way above a normal kit zoom.

    Got the 35mm 1.4 and 27mm f2.8 - and I'll be getting 300 back. I got the 27mm for its size rather than focal length. Using the 27mm changes the system from a mini SLR to a compact that fits in my jacket pocket. That was really handy when out and about last week when my family was visiting. It's a lovely lens to use too though so no regrets there.

    The 23mm looks amazing but rather beyond my budget. At some point I'd really like to get the 14mm though. Got some more gear I can sell to pick up up the 55-200mm in July before the Yeovilton air show. For now though the lenses I've already got cover all the bases I need.

    I got an old Minolta 100-200mm f4 off Ebay for 19 last week. Stopped down to f/8 it's fab. If I can get used to tracking planes via the manual focus in time for the air show I won't bother with the expensive Fuji lens for a while.
