How do you find the 35/1.4, btw? Ever since becoming familiar with mirrorless systems, I just want to move away from noisy lenses as well. Is it too distracting?
The 35/1.4 is a superb lens and not noisy at all. The focus motor is just audible and I suspect anyone who says it's noisy has never used a screw-focus lens.

It's well built and optically it's a amazing, very sharp even wide open but with character in the rendering, which is often lost in lenses which are very sharp at large apertures. I would thoroughly recommend it.

If you do get one, make sure that the firmware is up-to-date as I believe this can have a significant impact on focus speed.

Excellent series. How do you find the 15-45mm? I'd like the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 as a general use when I need the convenience of a zoom, but am considering getting a 16-50mm or 15-45mm in the meantime, as they're much cheaper.

X-T20 and the 35mm f/1.4 wide open. These were taken at the local fiestas in my mother-in-law's village at the weekend.

Late afternoon sky with just a hint of a rainbow. I took this with my X-T20 and a Vivitar 19mm.
