I love your work.  So much grit, emotion, and personality come out of your images. More please!!

You are very kind, MadDog - I greatly appreciate your words. 

You can see much of it on my instagram (if you have instagram) under 'capitalfaces' also. Thanks again.

Just had a look at your site Franco. Some great shots there :-)

I'm using the X-Pro 2 for street (also a Sony RX100), and finding it better than my X-T1, I think the fact that, with my right eye on the viewfinder, most of my face is still visible.

Consequently, if I'm spotted, I can smile, and that helps a lot :-)

Cheers John - much appreciated. 

I think all of the X-Series is good for street - I'm happy to use my older X-Pro 1 and XE2 as well - but the latest model we have is absolutely terrific and takes out a lot of guesswork, and I'm getting more consistency. Really looking forward to the new firmware too... :-)

Im using X-Pro 2 every day now, no reason not to. 

I'd only wish a smile worked in London - they're not a nice lot down here - but Im not too bothered by insults and middle fingers! It is what it is....

      Hi! 
      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.

      ...gets an unfairly bad rap, I think:
      https://capitalfaces.com/2017/03/25/the-less-than-perfectapparently-xf18mm/
      just trying to even it up a bit, because I think this lens is great value.
