Digital split screen, my favorite way to focus short and medium tele lenses, works great in portrait mode and with low contrast subjects and lighting, shot with the X-E2 and the Nikkor 50mm 1.4 wide open
It only took a few days for the Fuji X-E2 to become my favorite ml camera. Hey, some couples get married the day they meet, it happens! Small refinements and little improvements that don’t necessarily look spectacular on paper but do translate into a noticeably better shooting experience in the field. The X-E2 matured into a serious photographic tool. Fuji’s XF lenses are fantastic but like many who are considering a ml system I have a few third party lenses I would like to use. Manual focus can be a real pain and slow things down considerably. Check out the video for a quick summary of improvements I consider reason enough to upgrade and split focus in action with the Nikkor 50mm 1.4
after the break.
