5 Spectacular Portrait Lenses For Micro Four Thirds Cameras

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Olympus Pen F product images (9 of 9)ISO 4001-160 sec

Cheap Photo: Fujifilm’s X-E2 Back On Sale

julius motal the phoblographer fujifilm x-e2 product 03

If you are a fan of the Fujifilm rangefinder style but can’t spring for an X-Pro line camera then the X-E line is all for you. The latest model may be the X-E2s, but the still very capable X-E2 is back on sale as Fuji tries to clear out the remaining stock. Here is what we had to say about the X-E2 in our official review:

The X-E2 performs wonderfully for street and event photography, and its vintage aesthetic will have folks thinking your shooting with film. I find that this tends to be less intimidating to folks on the street. Point a D800 in someone’s direction and they might skulk away. With the X-E2, there’s less of that. — Read our full review here
