Fujifilm XE2s Camera with 35mm F2 WR lens, and 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OIS WR

Time to start zooming with my feet. I love my Fujinon 18-135mm OIS WR zoom lens with image stabilization. But it is big and heavy. A $100 price reduction saw this Fujinon 35mm F2.0 WR lens coming my way. It’s sooo tiny and cute. The camera and 35mm lens combined weigh less than the 18-135mm lens on its own.

Checking back through my pictures, 18mm, 35mm, 55mm, and 135mm seem to be my most popular focal lengths with the zoom. Maybe I’ll finally end up with four prime lenses. We’ll see I’ll settle for 18mm & 35mm for the moment.

However, there is a slight problem. I’ve been taking so many bread-and-butter, quickly taken, documentary-style pictures for work that I’ve lost my photo mojo (again). I need to get out and find that elusive creative spark and have some fun with the camera and this lens. I have to admit that this picture shows that there is still some life left in the eight-year-old Nikon D40x, which is the workhorse of Ginger’s studio.
