    Anyone have any pics of an XE1 with an EF-42 (Fujis bounce/tilt flash head) mounted? I'd like to get an idea of size/manageability.

    I found this one -- EF-42 on an X100. Is the X100 similar in size to the XE1?

    That does look huge, however, I've found that larger flashes on smaller cameras are relatively manageable provided that a lens of substantial size is being used. On a camera like the X100 or a m43 camera with a pancake lens for example, having such a large flash mounted to the top of the camera can feel pretty unwieldy. Having a somewhat larger lens to hold onto helps balance things out.

    Good point. My 5D likes my 85/1.8 with flash better than my "nifty fifty"

    Would REALLY like to see a fast portrait lens for the Fuji. That could help!
