Yes, the Casa Battlo.

 

^Nice perspective. I also like how the fallen leaves contrast with the wall. I think you made your point nicely.

Skate pic in post #3991 looks great. I like the tones with the low contrast, fits all nicely together.

A while ago I've sold my Fuji X100 because the autofocus just didn't cut it for the way I like to use my camera... shortly later I've regretted it and bought a X100s. What should I say, the difference is day and night. Friggin awesome camera!

Here are some examples. First is ISO 1250 which is a piece of cake for the X100s. Second one is absolutely at the limit. Shot at ISO 6400, f/2 and 1/17 sec, then push-processing with the InCamera JPEG engine by ~ 1 stop, noise reduction at its lowest level. Last shot was a quick test of the auto focus in macro distance.





So what should I say? I absolutely love this camera. It really fixed all of the X100's flaws. Improved usability, higher resolution, better autofocus.

I'll be honest. If there was a 23mm f/1.4 version and a 60mm f/1.4 version, I'd sell my DSLR stuff. It's so amazing to have this light, small camera that you can take everywhere.

Now I'm really curious to see what the X-Pro1 successor will be like. If it has auto focus on the level of the X100s and the 23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2 lenses (announced for Q4 2013 & Q1 2014) deliver, I might make the jump away from DSLR. I don't need fast AF for sport or anything, but it needs to be accurate in low light and the X100s absolutely is.

You're not alone in your appreciation of that camera:

Congrats on the X100S. I rented one a couple of months ago, and we did not get along. At first I thought it was the 35mm-equivalent FOV, but recent experience with another 35mm lens (see below) nixes that. It's probably one of those personal things, as the camera just didn't make me feel like going out and shooting.

I just bought a new-to-me Fuji GW690III medium-format rangefinder, and I'm looking forward to it when it finally gets here from Japan. I rented one locally and loved it. It's all manual with no metering (hello, Pocket Light Meter iPhone app). I'll be shooting mostly Fuji Acros 100 and Velvia 50. Next up is figuring out my scanning and home development workflows ...

Some pics from a bunch of lenses I've been trying out on the Sony NEX-5N in the last month:

Sony 24/1.8 Zeiss -- beautiful lens, and it should be on every NEX owner's list:

Sony 24/1.8 again, my poor aping of Saul Leiter:

Sigma 60/2.8 -- another beautiful lens, and this is a demo of its microcontrast and sharpness:

Sigma 60/2.8 -- yet another demo of its superb image quality:
9215028620_82b4ddc559_b.jpg

Zeiss Touit 32/1.8 -- good image quality, but everything else about this lens did not get along with me:

The last one is great, especially considering you focused manually. I would assume you used the hyperfocal technique, but then again it is very sharp.

By the way, if you like Saul Leiter, I recommend Alex Webb (but then you probably know of him already).
