This past weekend was Precision Camera Expo time, which happens twice a year. They have vendor visits, free classes, and giveaways. Not unexpectedly, this one was muted, even more than the one earlier this year. I, myself, haven’t visited Precision since the last expo sometime in the spring. It was nice to say “hi” to the camera folks that I haven’t seen in a while.
Many of the usual vendors were missing too. I didn’t see Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Sigma. I visited Canon for a few minutes and played with the new EOS R6, which finally has the refinement that I expect in a mirrorless. Perhaps I’ll look at it more seriously in a few years when I can get it used at a significant discount.
I spent most of my time at Fujifilm. Matt, our area Fuji rep, does a meticulous job arranging all the lenses from the biggest and fattest (and usually the most expensive) down to the smaller and more accessible ones. It’s a sight to behold and really shows off the big collection of available Fuji glass.
I brought my Fuji X-E3, just in case. It came in handy. I attached the 18mm f2, which I’m considering for my next purchase. It’s a comparably small pancake-like lens that fits the small X-E3 well. I used it to make today’s picture.
