Last Rays, Surry Hills

Last Rays, Surry Hills Catching the last of the late afternoon sun here in Sydney.

I realise I haven't talked much about the 60mm lens for the Fuji X-Pro 1 here; like the other two (the 35mm f/1.4 & 18mm f/2, that is) it's really a great piece of glass, with quite exceptional quality for the price.  I haven't used it as much as I have the other two, mostly because I tend to like to get closer to subjects, really; but when it's needed, I'm more than happy to grab it from my bag.

The only criticism I would have for it is that the sun shade that comes with it - while effective - is just a bit big from a practical standpoint.  What I mean is, when you put the hood on backwards for storage, it extends so far back that you can't actually remove the lens from the camera body.  So you have to take the hood off, take the lens off, then somehow (while holding both of those, AND the camera) put the hood back on the lens to stash it in your bag before you can put a new lens on the body.  It's just a bit more of a juggling act than is really necessary!
