Last week I was out in the backyard enjoying the weather, the kids playing, and a beer. I also figured it was a good opportunity to play around with the X-E2 macro function. The lens that was attached was the Fuji 35mm f/1.4, which seemed to work just fine in macro mode. The one thing I did quickly learn was that I felt more comfortable in manual focus when shooting in macro mode. Overall, the Fuji X-E2 performed well for macro shots, and if I were in a pinch or traveling I would feel confident that I could get the shot I wanted. However, if I was headed out to shoot specifically macro images I will defer to my Canon gear with an actual macro lens for now. Maybe someday I will have a Fuji macro lens and I will feel differently.
