Recently bought some new gear and decided to test things out at one of my favorite local spots: Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA. Amazing grounds, lovely and old grave markers and the James River running along side it.

Thanks for looking and C&C is welcome!

Neat set Jeff, what gear did you acquire?
Gracias amigo, I scored myself a Fuji XT3 and 23mm 1.4. GAS hit hard and after seeing what the 23 did I got a 10-24 and have my eyes peeled for a nice, used 56.

Ended up falling for the Fuji character! It wasn't hard after seeing the Leica price tag.;)

Hey Jeff, the Fuji XT3 is supposed to be a really sweet camera. @David S shoots Fuji too and he sure likes it. I picked up a Sony A6400 to use for trail running, street photography and my car camera (it stays in the car). I had looked long and hard at the Fuji, they certainly have a lot of great points. Ultimately for me I think I just didn't care for how hard it was to turn their dials on the camera's. I thought the old film style of the bodies was cool, but for me at least I didn't care for those controls. But image wise, they are really sweet camera's, and they do have some really good lenses.

Anyway... I really sweet series here.

My Favorite is #7. I really like that minimal DoF in it, and it has a real old time film feel to the look and processing.

My next 2 favorites would be #1 and #5.

That cemetery looks like an awesome place to shoot.

Thanks Jim !
Hey Beavins, I have the X-T2 and I had the X100S before that, just love Fuji's... I only shoot with the 35mm currently but I will be looking into the 23 and 56 in the future.

My friend Rick Knepper has 2 of the MF Fujis, loves them, and says they make the best lenses.
Not going to to lie, after seeing how the 26MP crop sensor performs a future 50MP/100MP FF body isn't such a crazy thought.:D

Nice work with the comps of the statuary. I especially like the second one.
Thanks Alan! I printed off a nice 13x19 and hung it in my work cube. It really captures the office mood lol.

This is my first jump both to a brand other than Canon as well as into the mirrorless arena, and so far I'm loving it! The EVF takes a little getting used to, and I'm unsure if it's something that I could use when I still need to feel like I'm "in the moment" while shooting, but the ergonomics and IQ/character so far are fantastic!

Shame that you didn't like the dials. They are easily one of my most favorite aspects about the camera. Are you sure you didn't have the dial-lock engaged?;) I'm not a very complex shooter, so having ISO/SS/EV all accessible via physical dials is awesome. I don't need much else!

Thanks for the picks and feedback, Jim!

Hey David! After only a few jaunts out with the XT3 I can tell why you're a fan. I've got a good buddy who has been in the Fuji camp for a while now, and after seeing some side-by-side comparisons with Leica I felt like I had to at least see what Fuji was cracked up to be.

I've got the 23 (amazing) and have plans for the 56 - the future is bright!
