In Octrober of 2011 I got my first Fujifilm camera, the X10. I had shoulder surgery and was having a really difficult time recovering. I was an NPS rep for Nikon, approaching retirement in a year and half. I was at Photo Plus in New York working the booth for Nikon and was looking all around the show for something small and light I could use until I recovered. Nikon had the Nikon One system, but honestly, though it sold well, I just was not enthusiastic about it. I went to the Fujifilm booth and saw the newly released X10! It was perfect, very small, very solidly built, it felt like a Leica and had manaul controls and a very sharp and fast zoom lens that coverd a very respectable range. I was sold and ordered one from B&H while at the show. I never intended to fall in love with it, just have something small to use until I could get back to my full frame Nikon cameras. The deal was done, and I never went back!
The X-E1 and X Pro 1 followed that with the first three interchangeable lenses the 60mm Macro, the 35mm f 1.4 and later the 18-55. Then the 55-200 and well, the rest is history. I’ve owned virtually every lens and body from the beginning!!! X100, X-T1, XE-2, X-T2, XH-1, X-T3 and on and on! I’ve owned and shot every lens in the XF line except the 18mm f 2.
Why Fujifilm? Here are some of my favorite images through this 8 years!
Thousands and thousands of images and great memories, captured, because I had a camera with me, a camera that I love and will carry every day, everywhere!!
