Returning the Fujifilm X-E2s

I decided to not keep the Fujifilm X-E2s.  It is a nice camera and I loved the external controls, but I didn’t find the image quality (IQ) of the camera and 18-55mm F2.8-4 lens to be significantly better than what I get with my Olympus E-M5ii and the Panasonic 12-35mm F2 lens in low light, and that is why I was trying it.  I was looking for an affordable solution for improving my ability to make images at higher shutter speeds in low light.

I haven’t been making many pictures for my blog lately since I have been busy working on other photography related things.  One of them is that I selected 100 pictures from the first six months of this year and I’m having them printed as 4×6 prints.  I reviewed my images and picked out 100 of them without considering which camera I used.  I then looked at the camera and lens used to see if I saw any surprises and I did.  I was surprised at the number that were made with the small Olympus TG-4 (such as the one above) and also with the number made with long focal lengths.  I am now waiting to have them printed.  After I get them I will spread them out and sort them and see what style of images I mostly make and prefer.  Based on what I learn, I might be concentrating on fewer styles of images.
