It’s now been a month since I bought the Fuji X-E1. In that time, I’ve taken 4 quick weekend road trips lasting 24 hours each. The destinations were Eastern Washington (Palouse), the Olympic National Park, the Oregon coast and Mt Rainier National Park. I feel v fortunate that all are within 4 hrs of driving from where I live in Seattle. Since that time, my trusty Olympus OM-D has stayed at home while I’ve familiarized myself with the Fuji and the two lens I bought (35mm + 18-55mm). The above 10 shots are my favourites so far. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a more productive time photographically speaking - especially while not being on vacation. I could write much more about the Fuji but my quick summary is that for the types of things I like to capture, I think it’s hands down the best balance between size and image quality on the market today. It’s also the most fun and sensible camera I’ve used from a controls and ergonomic perspective (save for a few film cameras). Anyway, that brings this series of weekend trips to a close - I’m now looking forward to summer!

    Found these via FujiRumors which features a write up on this guy. It just makes me happy that I dumped my Nikon & Canon...
