Indeed, where has the time gone since I last posted in June!
Firstly, let me introduce you to my flickr stream where just about the best of everything I’ve done over the last 6 months and longer, can be viewed. See here.
Much has happened over the last 5-6 months including a fantastic trip to Norway and Iceland. Also, I have now regained my D800, or I should say a D800E. I missed the sheer clarity afforded by the high pixel count camera, especially the ability to crop high definition landscape images. Also, my Nikon FX lenses were extremely lonely! More about all that another time.
Back to Norway and Iceland. I took the Fuji X-T1 and the 10-14mm f4, 18mm f2 and the18-55mm f2.8-4. I used this kit for 13 of the 14 days and the Nikon D7100 + AF-S 80-400mm f3.5-5.6 VRII for one day only. This was a Whale watching trip where the Fuji, as good as it is, it could not quite match Nikon for this kind of work, i.e. fast wildlife action imagery.
So, here we are a series of images from the trip and unless indicated, all from the Fuji X-T1 with various lenses, but mostly the truly 10-24mm f4. The exception are the images of the Hump back Whale in Isfjorden near Akureyki, Iceland. These were taken with a Nikon D7100 + Nikon AF-S 80-400mm AF-S VRII. A great memory of a wonderful holiday.
Enjoy the images (click on an image to see full size) and I hope you agree how they demonstrate the quality of the Fuji X – T1 and lenses. If you have any comments or observations, please do write to me.
