Yesterday, I bought myself a silver Fuji X-E2 and 18-55mm lens from WEX, in Norwich (see ).

It was dark and raining by the time I got back, so I didn't have a chance to give the camera a proper work-out. I did, though, take a couple of photos inside my caravan. Here's a resized out-of-camera JPG of one.

And here's the same photo after being put through the bundled Silkypix Raw converter then through my usual editor (Nikon Capture NX2).

Two things impress me: the white balance and the sharpness. I have the camera on auto WB and with no sharpening. The lighting is mixed LED and halogen.

There is some noise but only if you look closely. The curtain material behind the dog is glossy, so what might be moiré could equally be how the cloth looks anyway.

I'm looking forward to getting to grips with my new machine and with comparing it with my X-Pro1 plus primes.


PS (A week later) I hadn't thought to check before but the shutter speed was roughly 1/13 second. Shows how good the motion damping is on the 18-55 mm zoom.

Addendum (three months later)

I have now converted the RAF using Capture One Pro (version 7.2), tweaking the result in Capture NX2. This is my usual procedure these days.

So people can see the detail of the outcome, I've uploaded a full-sized JPG.
