X-Pro 2 + few primes in Malta/ Sicily

Recommended Posts

Another interesting article Matt. Especially since my wife and I have been discussing a visit to Malta for a couple of years. I feel an Autumn midweek break might be on the cards (since I'm now retired and can go when I wish). :)

Also interesting that your main street armament is the 12mm. For a few years now mine has been the Fuji XP1 + 14mm f2.8, I set manual focus f5.6/f8 @ five feet and everything sharp front to back. I hang it on a cross body strap at my right hip and steady the camera with thumb casually on the shutter and simply turn my whole body to aim. I love not having my subjects look into the lens but continue to act naturally. I'm also with you on the primes. I use the zoom when I'm with a non photographer but otherwise I'd rather take my time and use primes, 14, 23, 35 + 60 or 90mm. The 18mm sits outclassed between the 14 and 23 and doesn't leave the drawer so I may sell that to offset the cost of an X-Pro2.

Good to hear from you again Matt.

      Selling my beloved X-Pro2 kit since need a little lighter set-up. Would be interested in a trade to X100F.
      X-PRO2 body + metal grip (improves ergonomics)
      Bought in EU, should still have a valid warranty. Light usage marks, but nothing significant. Box and all the regular stuff included. 
      Fujicron XF23 F2
      Bought in Japan. There is a warranty card, not sure if warranty works in EU. Box, covers, and all the regular stuff included. The lens is in perfect condition, a few scuffs on the hood. I'll add an extra metal screw-on lens hood.
      I'm asking for 1490€ for the set.
      Located in Vilnius, Lithuania, but it's pretty cheap shipping anywhere in the world from there.
      I also have an XF14 for sale for 550€, if someone would be interested.

      Just got myself a 7artisans 7.5mm F2.8 APS-C Fisheye Lens (Fuji X Mount) and will be going on a landscape trip in couple of weeks. Excited to see how it goes with the lens. 
      Posted the first impressions on my blog.
