Default First shots with the x-e1 and 18-55 lens

After an incredibly short delivery time, the camera is here with me on my desk (3days japan-> belgium)

So charged the battery and went out during the dinner break.

It takes some adjusting but it feels like coming home. I expect to use this camera blindly in no time

What are my first impressions.

macro
  • of course the lens is not suitable but it works.
  • I see no focus peaking so i'll have to check the firmware - (just did was a 1 version both lens and camera updated them to 3 and 2 haven't had time to check the focus speed but the focus peaking works now)
  • Dragonfly: manual focused - first turn the focus as close as possible and then bring the camera closer to the bug until it is in focus. The 3x zoom helps a lot.
  • blackberry with scorpion fly - moved and shrunk the focus point works better than I had hoped.
bokeh
  • Changed focuspoint, camera as close to the ground, focus works super.
    note to myself I need a halfcase
landscape
  • wow - - looks good (a little cropped in lr)
    sharpness of the lens is perfect.

motion panorama
  • I'm missing something, I want to determine my exposure -> should check the manual.

movement
  • at f7.1 and ISO 6400, the runners are in focus and the focus speed was enough for me
I did have some small doubts about this camera but they are already gone.

Any c&c is always welcome

Cheers

Ronny
