FUJI XT-1 & 56mm 1.2 – An Incredible First Day | Mathieu Caveira

It’s rare to come across a new piece of gear that not only surprises and impresses, but also exceeds expectations. Oh, Fuji, you’ve won me over yet again and more than any other piece of camera equipment ever has. Before I go on about my first day with the Fuji XT-1 and 56mm 1.2 lens, let’s get a bit of background info out there so you all know where I’m coming from. I’m primarily a Canon user (7D/6D + Sigma 35, Canon 135 L, and other odds & ends gear) who bought into the Fuji game for the first time late in 2013 with the original X100, which was eventually sold off to fund more Canon gear. Fortunately I had the good sense of grabbing a Fuji X100s in the middle of 2014 and found myself gradually drifting towards the mirrorless side of life. My first experience with the X100 and now the XT-1 are like chalk and cheese. Where the X100 felt confusing, slow, and way beyond my skill set at the time, the XT-1 has blown me away and made my Canon gear feel like it’s a decade behind in terms of features, size, and aspects of performance. The X100s has been a staple part of my shooting for the past 6 months and comes with me just about every time I walk out the door. It’s so beautifully portable, unimposing, hip, and produces outstanding images on my favourite focal length…….
