Max Gazzè Tour 2016 Live @Pescara
For this reportage I’ve borrowed a Canon 5D Mk III coupled with a EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM and my Fuji X-E2 with the XF 18-55 f/2.8-4R LM OIS.
Of course, I got no operational problems with the 5D (if you know how to overcome its limits) and the lens performed very good, but I must admit that I’ve been surprised by the quality of the X-E2 images, taken at ISO 3200.
Does this means that is time to trash the Canon and go for a “Fuji-only” setup?
I don’t think so, in particular if telephotos are a recurring presence in the jobs.
True, now Fujifilm too has a 100-400mm lens that might satisfy a lot of photographer, but I fear that such a big lens wouldn’t fit right – in terms of handiness – with a little body like a X-E2s or the slightly bigger X-T1, thus making the couple (camera+lens) difficult to handle.
To me the right lens for a Fujifilm camera is no more than the XF 90mm f/2 R LM.
