I will be delaying my project of photographing in and around Hanover. With spring and summer arriving, I have a request to make a lot of nature pictures around Homewood at Plum Creek. I am going to do this and it will require me shifting my emphasis from prime lenses, street, indoor, and people photography to longer zoom lenses, flowers, birds, etc. The bigger issue is that I won’t have the time or energy to do both since I am limited in how much walking I can do.
I should have started the “Echoes of the Past” project earlier in the late fall. I will try to pick it back up in mid-summer or next winter when my other photography dies down.
I am now trying to decide on what camera and lenses I will use as I return my emphasis to nature photography. I would like to obtain a longer zoom lens but I haven’t decided on what one. Fujifilm’s next logical one for me to get would be the XF 100-400 lens, but it is expensive and might be hard for me to handle on the X-Pro2 which doesn’t have much of a hand grip. In addition, while the Fujifilm’s cameras like the X-T2 and the X-Pro2 have greatly improved with the speed of their focusing, I am not sure how the longer zoom lenses would compare against DSLR cameras.
