15 Sep X-Pro2 and One Lens- Rangefinder, 23mm, and The County Fair |  Joel Wolfson

I’ve covered a lot of ground in my posts about the X-Pro2 body in various situations. In this post, I’m concentrating on one lens- the Fujinon XF 23mm f1.4. I offer the pros and cons working with this lens which is a focal length (35mm full frame equivalent) often considered the ideal one for all-around versatility. You see this focal length on many higher end fixed lens cameras such as those from Fuji, Sony, and Leica. I must admit that for the whole time I was shooting at the fair I didn’t feel like I wanted another lens, with the exception of a few shots at the very end when I did the series of face painting. I think much of this is due to both the simplicity and freedom of using a rangefinder and not having to think about changing lenses. I think I would have felt similarly with my XF 35mm f2.0. However, once I use a focal length much longer than 35mm (FF equivalent = 50mm) I limit the situations where I can get away with only one lens and conversely going too wide limits potential for portraits and candids of people……
