I have not posted for a while due to spending time with a Fuji mirrorless set-up, but took the K3 and tamron 70-200 f2.8 off to Brands Hatch for some great historic racing, and the K3 still performs wonderfully in this environment.. :)

having now had a few weeks with the 7artisans 25mm f1.8 lens, I can really say that its a great little lens for the low cost and for anyone looking for a fairly wide angle option for fuji mirrorless..

Shots 1 and 2 were taken wide open and the others at either f2.8 or f4

Certainly the shots I have had at f8 seem sharp across the image, I need to try some landscape at f11 or f16 to see how it copes , but for the price it's a bargain...

i just picked up one of the lenses offered for fuji-x fitment from the chinese company '7artisans'. This is a 25mm f1.8 manual focus lens and in the UK its available for
around 55.

First impressions are good, its nice and sharp in the centre but does have some fall-off towards the edges - being a 25mm its nice and wide (great for street work) but also it has a nice close focus capability as well. Here is a selection of shots so far..

really enjoying getting out with this X-E1 and various older manual lenses...mainly been sticking with the smc-k 28mm f3.5 and a cosinon 55mm f1.4 but have also tried out a few others from the collection.

here are a few taken over the last week or so...C&C welcome as always :)

recently picked up a secondhand X-E1 to use with my collection of SMC-K/SMC-M primes, and also some m42 lenses that i have collected - main reason was to have something smaller than always taking my Pentax K3 out and about...

the first outing with the X-E1 was the Goodwood 'Revival' event this weekend - really pleased with how the Fuji performed, most of these were shot with either a SMC-K 28mm f3.5 or with a Cosinon 55mm f1.4.

C&C welcome as always...

spotted this little fella out in the garden..gently put him in a bowl and headed to get camera. Finally ended up with 100mm cosina macro lens mounted on a 12mm extension tube + Raynox DCR-150 up front.

Living where we do in East Anglia we are surrounded by so many reminders of the American effort in WW2 with the remains of many of the bomber bases still visible (just 8 miles from my house is whats left of Little Walden airfield which was a B17 base, the control tower and runways/perimiter tracks are still there).

Certainly in this region we understand the price paid in American lives, and will never forget...

Around 30 minutes from where I live is the Madingley American Cemetery and Memorial. This was inaugurated in 1956 and contains the headstones of 3,809 servicemen who died during WW2, mainly airman of the USAAF and sailors from the North Atlantic convoys. There is also the memorial wall which contains the names of 5,127 servicemen who were missing...

I often go there to just sit and reflect on the enormous sacrifice paid by ordinary people to give us a free Europe. I think that the words from the the Pink Floyd song 'the gunners dream' are very apt when looking at all the names of the fallen..

"Floating down through the clouds
Memories come rushing up to meet me now.
In the space between the heavens
and in the corner of some foreign field
I had a dream"
