I spent a little time today wondering how the Fuji-film X-E1 performs in macro mode and compared to the X100. It did not take me long to discover the Fuji X-E1 with either the 35mm f/1.4 or the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 its performance is rubbish. At first this was a surprise but its all about the focus distance, and the focus distance is so long on both of my lenses the macro mode makes virtually no difference. My Fuji-film X100 has at least 1/2 the distance and macro mode works very well but is a little soft wide open. However after thinking about this I guess it why Fujifilm made the 60mm macro lens. Hey Ho. However my time was not wasted …. I was blown away by this shot from the Fuji-film X-E1/35mmf/1.4 combination in normal manual mode. This image is straight from the camera into ipad for this blog. Yummy eh …. Might do some more soon.
