X-T20 and 35/1.4 wide open.

The Fuji Rumours page I follow on FB recently published an article on why the Fuji 35/1.4 should not be replaced and then a few days later there was an indication (unconfirmed AFAIK) that there will be a new 33mm f/1.4 WR lens coming out this year. Cue some eating-of-words and an article on why the 33/1.4 is obviously going to be completely different from the 35/1.4 and not a replacement in any way shape or form.....

Personally, I love the 35/1.4, it's up there with the DA 35mm Limited on my list of Best Lenses Ever, but if they put it in a WR body with a faster and quieter focus motor and up the build quality a little, without touching the optical formula, then it'd be pretty much perfect.

The Fuji 35/1.4 is my most used lens. I find I don't have to work so hard as I did with the Pentax FA31mm to get a good photo. One of the reasons why I switched to Fuji from Pentax.

I've heard Spain is one of the best countries to retire to. Southern Spain near Marbella.

Fuji X-H1 with Pentax A 400mm F5.6
I finally found the Fuji 100-400mm killer. No need to spend $1,899 when I can get the same results with my $260 Pentax 400mm Prime lens

These will look even better in full sunlight.

If you look at the two people walking in the background of the second picture, do you see that their feet are off the ground in unison. Love that lens.

Yea but only because it's convenient taking photo's through my dining room window. When I'm out and about I'll use my car window rolled down about 2/3rds and place a towel on the edge of the window and rest the lens on there taking photo's of whatever interests me. I'm sure it would do well handheld as well since I like to shoot in bright sunlight when I can at F11 with shutter speed at least 1000.

I know that feeling, though I've never used the 31mm, you could substitute in almost any lens there. The Fujifilm system helps you get great photos while at the same time putting you in control.

I wouldn't know about that, I'm at least two-and-a-half decades away from retirement myself. Living in the south of Spain I imagine being very close to my idea of hell on earth. Give me a green mountain by the sea and some rain any day.

LOL. Good to know that Southern Spain isn't all it's cracked up to be.
