Fuji X-E4 with 27mm f/2.8 Real World Examples (This combo rocks!)

For me, Fuji is all about producing great results while giving the user a sense of enjoyment when photographing. It’s why I love the small form factors of the Fuji cameras, the dials, and especially the image quality that comes out of these picture-taking machines! I thought it would be useful to show the Fuji X-E4 with the 27mm f/2.8 examples from the real world (if you call driving throughout the Nebraska countryside the “real” world!).

It’s a great combination that at first had me a little apprehensive about using it as a “daily driver.” While I used and enjoyed the Fuji X-100V for a long time, the inability to change lenses really bothered me. I know that limitations are fun to work with, and I’m a big proponent of them, but what if I want my limitation to be a 50mm lens instead of the forced 35mm like the X100V? That’s why I find the X-E4 so fantastic.

I had no previous experience with the old 27mm, and while this one updates the lens with weather resistance and a clickable aperture control, the optics are the same. I wasn’t sure if I wanted an f/2.8 walkaround lens because I was so used to using one of the f/2.0 Fujicrons, or the 35mm f/1.4.

So for this set of photos, I made sure to force myself to shoot with this combination. You know what? The results were great. I shot jpeg, experimented with some heavy film simulation recipes, and just made sure to enjoy the process. In these photos you’ll see me working with some material I don’t usually photograph: dark and moody black and white graveyards! I guess that’s the fun of taking this small combination out and forcing some experimentation, right?

So, here are some Fuji X-E4 with the 27mm f/2.8 examples for you to enjoy!

Built in 1931, this old school is an example of a black and white Across setting on Fuji Cameras. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
A beautiful sunset. I shot this on jpeg but was happy with the ability to bring back detail from the under-exposed section. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
An ugly cloud over a country road, threatening to storm. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
Some lillies I found near the side of the road, framed with a giant cloud in the distance. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
A beautiful winding road and hill in Nebraska as the evening fades. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
Country roads are fun to photograph. This fence is painted red, white and blue. I found this near the fourth of July. Shot with an Fuji X-E4 and XF 27mm f/2.8.
An excellent example of the Fuji XF-27mm shot at f/2.8. It might not be the "fastest" lens but it renders beautifully. Shot with an Fuji X-E4.
