Independence Day: Have a Great Fourth of July!

Fuji X-E1 Zeiss Touit 12mm independence day

Have a Great Independence Day!:

Hey everyone, I hope you all have a safe, and fun Independence Day, and a great holiday weekend.  I can’t believe it’s already July!  This photo here was taken with my Fuji X-E1 and the Zeiss Touit 12mm lens.  I’ve been shooting with both Touit lenses all week, and they’re both great.  I only wished the weather was better.  It has been so hot and humid here in New York City.  The 32mm F1.8 is a fantastic little lens but I must say, the 12mm is the lens I really don’t want to return.  Optically, it’s excellent but the focal length (an 18mm equivalent) is just so much fun to use!  I can’t get enough of this lens.  I think there might be an 18mm (either for the Leica or the Fuji) in my future only because I don’t know if I can live without this focal length ;).

Anyway, I just want to give you all an update of what’s to come: I’ll be writing up user reviews for both Touit lenses, and will probably post them next week.  I will also most likely write up a comparison post between the 32mm F1.8 Touit lens and the XF 35mm F1.4.  Lastly, I’ll be writing up a post that will have a lot of black and white photos from the Leica M.

So, again, I hope all of you enjoy the Fourth of July weekend.  Check out some of the Independence Day fireworks :).  I’ll be trying out the 32mm F1.8 Touit lens with some portrait shooting tomorrow, and then I’ll be post processing all of the photos that I took from both Touit lenses this weekend.  Take care everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

  • Hi Patrick,

    A Happy 4th of July to you also. I agree, a very hot and humid day. I was on Boston Harbor today for the USS Constitution turnaround ceremony, very cool. I like your photo above. Can’t wait for the review and comparison between the Touit and Fuji 35 f/1.4

      Thanks, Alan!

      Nice hearing from you again. I know, what’s up with this weather??? I haven’t seen blue skies until today. Sounds cool about the Boston Harbor, did you take any pictures while you were there? Thanks about my photo. The 18mm is making me see in a whole new perspective. I’ll be working on the comparo tomorrow actually :). Hope you stay cool in this weather!
