Spring swap

   MINI, Cars, XF 16/1.4
 
 

Today, in anticipation of sunnier weather, I swapped the winter wheels off the Mini for summer wheels. Mind you, I'd be happy to run the winters all year. This is Canada after all. But I figure that since I own the summer set might as well spread out the wear. And the summers look better.

While I've recently dusted off the Nikon for some real estate shots, the summer wheel below was shot with the Fuji. The Nikon wins for sheer pixels - you can crop till the cows come home. But the Fuji's draw is this lens. When I shot Nikon DX my favorite lens was the 17-55 at 17. On FX it's the 24-120 on 24. This Fuji 16 is about the same field of view and it's faster, though it lacks all the other focal lengths the zooms offer. That is a negative. But: the 16 is almost as close-focus as a macro, it's a 1.4, and it's my favorite focal length.
