Versatility of Fuji 35mm F2 Lens

I did something yesterday I haven’t done much of lately.  I took my X-PRO3 with the 35mm F2 lens on it with me when I walked around the campus.

I have been trying, when/where I could, to see what I can do with my one camera, one lens photography setup.  These images represent some of yesterday’s extremes.  The first three images were up close images to see what could be done.  The last three are long distance extremes where I cropped the original image severely and then increased the size to get these scenes.  

While I am being tempted by Charlie to get another lens or two … like the 56mm F1.4 Viltrox lens, I haven’t decided if I need it or have a use for it.  While I like the lens, based on Charlie’s and various reviewers opinions, it wouldn’t be as good of a universal walkabout lens as the Fuji 35mm F2 lens.

My original thought was to use the X-PRO3 with three prime lenses … either the 16 or 23mm, the 35mm, and the 50mm F2; but I wanted to push myself and see if just the 35mm F2 was sufficient (effective 50mm) since I didn’t really have much of an idea of what I might find to photograph.  Another idea would be to use the 35mm F2 prime lens along with an 16-80mm F4 zoom lens for those times when the 35mm focal length wasn’t adequate (Homewood events?).

Hmmm, maybe I should continue with my experiment and wait and see if I can manage with just the 35mm F2 lens, even for whatever Homewood decides to do.  Or, maybe I should order the Viltrox lens to try it while continuing my one lens experiment.
