My “40mm” point of view

In 2012, Canon announced the EF 40mm F2.8 STM. It was one of the affordable and compact lenses in the whole EF lenses lineup.

What will be the future for the legendary 35mm?

As we all know, the XF35mm F1.4 is probably one of the legendary lenses in Fujifilm 10 years of X-series. Most of the Fujifilm photographers who use it, love it and praise it. So am I. The noisy focusing motor can be easily forgiven by the impressive results coming out from the optical magic thatContinue reading “What will be the future for the legendary 35mm?”

Street walk with XF70-300mm

Finally, I have the opportunity to use my XF70-300mm for a street shoot. It is a fun photowalk with fellow Fuji fanboys and girl.

A small walk in the Jewel

If it is not seeing my colleague one last time before he heading back to his country, I would not have this opportunity to visit Jewel Changi Airport.
