Last week, I was fortunate enough to travel to Boston for a class related to my career. I planned my visit to arrive there a day early so I could sight see and take lots of photos. In the past, Iâ€™ve travelled with a lot of photo gear, but no more. Iâ€™ve learned my lesson, and itâ€™s just not worth the hassle of carrying the gear through the airport, trying to cram into a tiny space on the plane (or have them try to forcefully confiscate it from you and check it), etc. So, I packed my Fuji X-T1, 16â€“55mm f/2.8, and a B+W Kaesemann polarizer (used for all the outdoor shots).
Places visited: Thinking Cup, Copley Square, Flour Bakery, Harvard, Fenway Park, and the Boston Fish Exchange.
Itâ€™s been a busy week, and this is the first time I have really sat down at my computer in seven days. I havenâ€™t had time to post process these images at all, they were all shot with the X-T1 using the Velvia preset.
Bottom line, the lens focuses fast, itâ€™s sharp, and a very useful focal length. Without a doubt, I highly recommend this lens!
