af speed seems ok, really about the same as the 35...image quality is very good...i'm trying not to compare with the 35...
the only thing that i don't like is that it does not focus as close as the 35 or the 18...only by a bit less but noticable when i want it.

bonus points...the xe1/27 fits into my tiny terraclime 50 bag...same as my former rx100!
and at the end of my 66 inch lance strap it fits nicely...low and against my hip carried across my shoulder.

it's a winner for me...the biggest surprise/'issue' is getting used to the 40mm fov as i got very used to the 35's 50mm fov...i know, small difference but noticeable for me...i like it better for working in a crowd than using the 35!

Crisp clean and sharp Joe.
The tomato shot looks very digital to me. Where do you leave the in camera sharpening default?
Maybe it's just how contrasty the flat velvety green stems are over the shiny red orbs of the fruit.

You must be stoked. It's everything you could have hoped for. Can you post an image lens on your XE1?

all camera settings at standard/factory set to 0...

i can't tell what a digital image looks like...these are how i post process pretty much everything these days...very minimal.

Nice parallel verticals on the doorway photo. Un-purposeful converging verticals are my pet peeve.

Looks nice...still trying to convince myself that I don't need it, but it's getting difficult

I'd like this lens, but I'm thinking I might like the upcoming 23mm more, as I really connect with the 35mm FF FOV. However, for a discreet walk-about lens the 27 seems hard to beat!

Joe, looking at your images in this thread, it looks to me that this lens/camera combination has lit a big creativity fire in you! Don't get rid of this combo!!!

Looks nice but may be better using channel mixer as there will be many different tones. Thanks.

i use the covert at urban/snapshot (pse) and then adjust levels...for all my colour to b&w images.
might not be the best but it's simple and quick and i like the look of it.

Here is some shots from Berkeley Bowl - just some quick grab shots to show the lens, first pano crop at f2.8 wide open


Next @f5.6 no cropping


Another @f5.6 but at around 20% crop


These were all shot RAW and developed using Aperture and my save processing affect.

Cheers
Gary
