I was in Chicago this week for business, and had a little (though not a lot) of time to go out and take a few shots. I haven’t processed everything from the trip, but I thought I’d show two from the harbors along Lake Michigan. The first is the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse, which was built in 1893 and moved to its current location in 1917. It’s now automated, so no one needs to man it in the evenings. It had been an overcast day, but we had a small break in the clouds, which set up the beautiful cloud structure behind the lighthouse for this shot.
This second shot was taken outside the Museum Campus, near the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium. This bicycle path wraps around the aquarium on the lakefront. I loved the geometric pattern of the steel wall with the rocks below.

“the Fuji the best of these three cameras then? In pure image quality from the sensor? Yes. In other ways? Not so fast…. Wait for my full review of the X-E1 for more detailed discussion, ” From Feb. 21
I’m wondering if I missed your review somehow. You seem to be toting the xe-1 around and referring to it as yours. Love your stuff, regardless of cam.
The X-E1 is mine. I haven’t completed my review yet, but I’ve been shooting a lot with the X-E1 recently. I have not switched from m4/3, just added the Fuji system. The Fuji is great for more deliberate shooting, but the OM-D is still my go to anytime I need responsiveness and Fast AF…Or low light AF.
I hope to have my X-E1 review done in the next few days.
Beautiful and diverse set. I really like everything about the first image.
I have decided by now to move to 4/3 system.
I am planing to sell my canon gear and buy the new E-M1 but when I see pictures from the Fuji X-E1 I have some doubts thinking.
Any help here?.
