Happy New Year!

It has been a crazy busy Christmas vacation. What with time spent working on the X-E2 review and shooting family portraits (as you can image I am the official family photographer for the Philippine’s side of our family.) and just relaxing around the pool, I haven’t had any time to post even just a few photos.  So in lieu of a a lengthy post of some aspect of photography, how about I just throw out a few images. All these are from the X-E2 and all shot with the 23 mm.  I find myself still trying to become familiar with the personality of this camera. It almost seems to want to take images in low light.  So I leave you with these few images from Dagupan, Philippines.

    Very nice images Matt, I just come back from Manila as well, staying there for almost 4 months, but sadly i never got chances to shoot with my XE-1 as I was occupied with works. Now back to Indonesia, I’m ready to do the usual things I do, I shoot wedding, as I’ve ditched my Nikon D600 4 months ago before I go to The Phillipines, now its time for me to convince my (future) client that this little guy is as capable as my old D600 does. Wish me luck!

      Good luck Johan! If you think the X-E1 is nice, I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you get a chance to play with the X-E2.
