Carry less, shoot more

FujiFilm’s marketing slogan rings particularly true on hot summer’s days when the mercury tops 30°C as it did this past weekend. As it was, I found myself carrying (lugging more like) both a Nikon D850 with 16-35mm Nikkor and the diminutive  Fujifilm X-E3 with 23mm Fujinon on a hot afternoon at Dungeness. Still, it was an opportunity to try out a small ultra-light setup and I have to admit I’m pretty impressed by the results. Sure, the wider angle of the Nikkor lens was useful in shooting the old boats at Dungeness, but the little Fuji more than held its own and looking at nice contrasty Acros film simulations in the EVF was a pleasure.
