I am reading your web site for over a year now and I enjoy it a lot. You are doing great job in spreading the news, passion and understanding for mirrorless cameras and passion for photography in general !
My name is Mateusz , I am polish and live in Warsaw/Poland. Photography is a hobby for me, I take camera with me pretty much everywhere I go. Most of weekends I am trying to get out of the city to some interesting places.
I used to be Canon fan-boy, using 5D Classic and some L lenses (also had short episode with 1Ds and 1D (mark II), but those were waaaay to big). However I quickly realised that is too much for my amateur photography needs. Then I switched to Olympus e-pm2 and tried micro 4/3, which was very ok experience, but still was missing something. So I tried Fuji x and … stayed with it, playing with most of the lenses from the fuji line-up . Recently I had some opportunity to buy 2nd hand Sony RX1 and I pulled a trigger on it :). Then decided to minimize amount of gear that I own and ended up with set made of 3 elements, which I think should fully address what I need:
1. X-M1 with Samy 12 2.0 (I sold Fuji 14 2.8 , spend half of the amount for Samy and put rest into fund for when 50-140 2.8 is introduced ;-))
2. Sony RX1
3. X-E2 with Fuji 56 1.2
Last weekend I went with my friends to excellent event of old-school VW Beetle owners meeting. It was great location in small village on polish sea-side, called Niechorze. Weather was not the best for sea side weekend, but it still was excellent time. Great gateway from busy city live in Warsaw, to the small sea-side village with people who are crazy about their old VW cars.
The 3 pieces set worked perfectly for me, allowing to cover pretty much all I needed. Below are 3 sample photos, I invite you to my flickr for more…. :)
1. Really cool Karmann Ghia that was drawing a lot of attention (with Fuji X-E2 + 56 1.2)
2. Rusty style is very popular, its surprising how much work people put into those cars to make them look like that :) + the whole group was allowed to get into a concrete peer, this was sure spectacular (with Fuji X-M1 + S 12 2.0)
3. There was number of contests in the afternoon and evening, this one was called ’the wall’ and was about driving blinded as close to a wall made of cartons, as possible (with Sony RX1).
Let me know what do you think about it ! :)
