I’ve had the XE-2 for about 3 months now. I’ve put it through its paces, and I find that I pick it up more than my Nikons now. When I first picked it up, I had a D3s and D800 and was looking for something smaller for every-day use. It was perfect. I sold my D3s and picked up a Df hoping for a similar experience. I absolutely love the Df as well, but the XE-2 is just easy. I love the fact that I can take a picture on the XE-2, transfer it to my iPhone, pop it into VSCO or Snapseed, and have an awesome shot ready to toss on Instagram in a minute or two.
I have taken more keepers with the XE-2 in the past 3 months than I have with my Nikons. Not to say I don’t use the Nikons or that I can’t make great images with them. I still carry one of them plus a couple lenses with me wherever I go since I only have the Fuji 35mm f1.4. In the case of this trip, I kept the Df with an 85mm and the D800 with a 35mm on the passenger seat next to the XE-2. I just didn’t use them as much.
So here are my favourite images from 10 days in Norway, taken with the XE-2.
