    I don't think I've seen any samples of this combination of lens with X-Trans sensor, so thought I would put up my first sample shots.

    My initial impression is that this is probably as big and as long as I would like to go on an X-E1 to shoot handheld. Focusing on moving objects is fairly challenging. It sure is a pretty and nicely built lens though.

    An example of the close-focus distance. F 1.8

    SOOC colours and an example of the bokeh. F 2.8

    F 2.8 on a moving target, I think the focus was a bit off.


    Same as above..a bit uglier bokeh in this one. Not sure why.

    Hope someone finds this helpful or interesting!

    A few more from this sweet lens. At f2.8 and f2 respectively IIRC.
