Two Cameras and three lenses = Best Hipster Camera System?
With this system I am able to mix and match. Let me explain.
X100T has 2 convertor lenses. WCL which converts X100T’s
23mm to 18mm. And TCL which convert X100T 23mm to a
35mm. The attachment of this 2 convertor will not increase
your F-stops compare to a tele-convertor. Which is good.
Next, the new sexy sibling, the X70. It’s a 28mm F2.8 fixed
lens. It also has one WCL which converts it to a ultra wide
at 21mm! A must have for photographers who loves landscape
Here is the deal; both X100T and X70 has the same filter tread
size of 49mm. Which means if I would to take a X100T’s TCL
and fix it on the X70! That would translate to around 42mm. I
could also take X70’s WCL and attached to X100T. Now that
will convert it about 25-26mm for X100T. Its just little more but
if you are looking for wider angle for your X100 series; this
may be your best bet.
In fact when I attached the X100T’s WCL on the X70; which
converts to around 23mm. Which is good enough for me. But
its the way this 2 comes together. They look like its made in
heaven. Totally balance and beautiful. You have to see it to
fully experience what I am talking about.
If you own these 2 cameras and the 3 convertor lenses; you
actually have these entire set up in your bag under 1.25kg. Which
also translate to 7 “prime” lenses. Below is the set-up. All
converted to 135mm format.
50mm F2 X100T + TCL
42mm F2.8 X70 mounted with X100’s TCL
35mm F2 X100T
28mm F2 X100T + WCL
25-26mm F2 X100T mounted with X70’s WCL
23mm F2.8 X70 mounted X100’s WCL
21mm F2.8 X70 + WCL
I believe this is the best hipster camera system. You named it;
this system has it, almost. Hybrid viewfinder, leaf shutter lenses,
high flash sync, tilt screen for selfie, APS-C sensor, 21mm to 50mm,
touch screen, electronic shutter up to 1/32,000 and so on.
Many have asked which is a better camera? The new compact X70
or the retrolious X100T? They may share many parts together but
they are a totally different beast altogether. When you place all their
differences together; they form a very powerful alliances. If you are
looking for the ultimate hipster camera system, look no further.
