    Not really into tattoos.. but a client wanted photos to be submitted to a NYC based tattoo magazine. I posed some teaser photos from the Easter themed shoot a while back in early March. 6 photos were submitted in mid March and found out that my photo submissions were approved 2 weeks ago! :D

    I instantly downloaded the digital copy, and finally got the hardcopy of the magazine. I'm pretty happy with the way the photos came out & so is my client!

    Only 2 photos per photographer were published, so here are my 2 shot with the X-T1 & 35/1.4

    and this is the cover photo, which is not my photo, but impressive none the less.

    Really makes me miss my X-T1.. at least my 2nd copy of the 56/1.2 lens came in today!

    Beautiful photos, congrats!

    BTW, what is that case on your X-Pro1? It looks really nice.

    I'm on my third. My first had the AF clutch fail and my second started breaking apart in the middle of the lens body. Third looks to be perfect, though. Been shooting with that one for three weeks now.

    Not to hijack Taz's thread but holy smokes, two failures on a brand new lens isn't encouraging :(

    Thanks! Yes, my first copy became a little loose.. as in, I can pull on the lens and it elongates a little. Nothing wrong with the quality of the images, but knowing that the lens can be elongated scared me..

    Thanks! The Case is from Gariz. It adds grip and style (comes in a all black version as well) :)

    I think we suffered from the same issue! Glad your 3rd copy is perfect! Hopefully my new copy will be too!

    You don't know how many times, I almost bumped into trashcans or light poles because of my wondering eyes checking out the beautiful women ;)
