Again pretty amazing colours, and I had no hesitation in converting this image to B&W.

Fujifilm X-E1 and the XF 18-55 f/2.8-4.0 Kit Lens

There was a lot of detail in this image which is the reason I took it. It's the Staedel Museum in Frankfurt.  There are a number of points I wanted to clear-up about this sensor and this image showed me just how good it is. Looking at the buildings facade, there is a lot of detail in there, so how much can it really capture. Well, a lot. Possibly the best sensor I've used to date (I haven't used the Nikon D800 or D800E which are probably better). Secondly, I wanted to see how much CA I would have to correct. If CA would be visible it would show up in the branches of the tree reaching up into the sky on the middle left of the image. Didn't find any at all. It would also probably show on the ramp railings that the couple are walking down in the bottom right of the image. Again, I found none.
So, if anyone out there is sceptical, or sitting on the fence wondering if they should purchase this system, stop sitting on the fence and buy into Fujifilm. It really is a great system.

This, to me, is getting close to a perfect conversion (for my taste). It has something of a 3D look to it. The low contrast sky lets the building pop out of the image. It may be difficult to see at this small size, but I'm sure you get the gist of what I'm trying to convey.

The next conversion candidate.
I think Franfurt hasn't had a day in the last x number of years, where there was no building going on. Just for once I would like to take a skyline shot of Mainhatten without a crane in it. Whether I'll achieve that before I depart this world is questionable. Just joking.

The more I play with the B&W conversion, the better it gets. I think you will always have to find the best conversion workflow for your taste, for each camera you have. When using a new sensor this alsways takes some trial and error but then everything comes together and bingo. After that, conversions won't take you long at all to finish. My problem, still, is actually seeing in B&W. This isn't an easy thing to accomplish and really does take a lot of practice, sometimes years.

Same ship, same day, different angle. Don't you just love those colours. I think I prefer the Fuji colours to the Olympus which are pretty famous for their colour rendition, especially in their jpg engine. Also notice the dynamic range in this image. No burnt out highlights and no blocked blacks. Simply excellent.

Even if seem to repeating myself in these posts, I can't remember the last time a camera exited me son much. It is fun to use and the image quality is to die for. The conversions are quick to do without any problems such as banding the sky. I just love these conversions, and is a prelude to much more images being converted.

I wnated this one done in landscape format to a little more of the river and the town in the background (for those interested the building going up in the top right of the image is the new European Central Bank) cousing the image to be brighter than the previous two. I wanted to see if the camera could handle the exposure at bottom left. Well, it could and exposure appears to be spot on.

This second image has been processed with slightly softer tones than the first.
can you tell the difference, I certainly can and it just shows how versatile SFX II is.
Well worth the money.
