First impresson of the Fuji XF 35mm f/2.0 WR

Oh my, my last post was in august! About Nikon. Nothing wrong about that camera, I will still be using a high pixel count full frame camera for most of my landscape shots. But as I wrote in my posts about Nikon, I will still be shooting Fuji for my other stuff. But, to get to know and get familiar with the camera, I have been shooting the Nikon (and a Sony A7r MkII too) for most of my stuff during last autumn. And, even though I like them for landscapes, I find the uninspiring to use on a daily basis. I'm still in love with my Fuji's...

Today I bought the Fuji XF 35mm f/2.0 weather resistant lens for my X-T1. I already have the XF 35mm f/1.4 lens. So why the heck buy a another lens at that focal lenght? Well, the XF 35mm f/2.0 is somewhat smaller and lighter, but not much. But it is weather resistant. And that is important as Fuji will still be my "travel everywhere" camera. I'm planning a trip to Thailand this coming summer - and there will be heat, lots of dust and sand, waterfalls, and occasional rain as it will be at start of the rainy season.

After getting the 35mm f/2.0WR today I noticed a few nice features about it. The aperture ring is not so easy to knock out of it's position as the 35mm f/1.4 aperture ring is. And the manual focusing ring is also much better. And - it focuses much faster. That's my first impression anyway. 

Here's one of my first shots from today, my son eating yoghurt.
