    Very nice, which colour settings are you using for your last picture?

    It likes you, I can tell... :biggrin: There isn't a shot there that I don't like, but that first one is a real corker.

    I shot RAW/JPEG using the standard profile but in LR I changed it to Astia, I added just a tiny extra bit of sharpening (+10 I think). NR is set in camera to -2.

    Thanks Bill, that first one was with the 27mm. It's also a crop of about the centre 50% of the image, as that lens doesn't focus especially close.

    Nice work. Despite the improvements the X-E2 brought, the X-E1 is still a capable and enjoyable camera. Just make sure it has the latest firmware. I have the 18mm and 27mm lenses myself - and that may be all I'll need for some time.

    Yes, I got the new firmware installed as my first task after opening the box. The switch from P to A mode with the command dial works very well.

    Very nicely done! I'm loving my XE1 too. Right now in the US the kit is only $5 more than the lens by itself. $5 for the body is a steal!

    I bought Luke's XE1. It's a fun camera, and by far the easiest, most intuitive camera to make adjustments on! I just wish it help focus between shots. That is, I could half-press to focus, take a shot, and keep the half-press to keep the focus lock, and take another. This would help in lower light shooting.

    how about stay in Manual, and use focus assist for your first shot?

    at least, in my head it works. lol

    That is the only way to do it! I had trouble with FA at a distance in relatively low light, but that would work.

    i know i can lock focus-only on my xe2 while in af-s, but they separated af-lock and ae-lock functions into two buttons. those were shared under one button on the xe1. i just don't remember if the xe1 allowed you to select only af-L for that button within the settings.

    That first floral image is just beautiful. The more I use the little 27mm f/2.8 on my X-E1, the more I love it. It's just tack sharp for me wide open. More so than my Fuji X100's lens at f/2.8. At f/4 they are about even. It's slowing becoming my "daily lens" where the X100 was my previous go to camera. I do miss the OVF/EVF combo on the X-E1 and I'm looking to an X-Pro1 for that (possibly). Thanks for sharing the images!
