Fuji X-T1: my favourite camera for travel | Wim Arys

I have come to rely on the Fuji X-T1 for travel photography. It is one of the few mirror-less cameras out there with a very descent kit lens (XF 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS) which for me almost always gets the job done. Whether you decide to go with the graphite silver or black edition, both will serve you well and are only cosmetically different. I either use the AF lock button on the back or half press the shutter with AF set to centre spot and focus and recompose, works like a treat.The 18-55 f/2.8-4 rarely disappoints, decently sharp corner-to-corner at f/2.8 already, but aperture is easily changed on the lens. Can’t wait to try the new XF 16-55 f/2.8 due in early 2015, not just for the undoubtedly even better optical performance, but having a weather sealed lens makes this combo even more useful. Every time I open my RAF files I am still amazed with the sharpness and quality of the images. I’m not gonna lie to you, the Fuji X-T1 does not have the best widest autofocus capabilities in the world, but together with the body’s hands-on controls, it makes a killer combination…..
