Photokina 2014 - Day 2
Cameras everywhere, that's the motto of Photokina and it's great to see and play with some of the cameras.
Since I wasn't that big into new gear but still wanted to spend another day at Photokina, I decided to rent a Fuji XT-1 and see how it works.
It was fun to play around with it but I couldn't see myself using it as it's to big and I didn't warm p to the controls and somewhat slow AF.
Today, I also checked out the Leica booth and while it was fun to see and try the expensive Leica cameras, none was really very exciting in use.
Voigtlander had some cool lenses on display and for the first time I was a bit tempted to add more gear to my collection.
After checking out some accessories, including a very weird camera module made only for the iPhone 5 (something that didn't really made any sense to me), I decided to focus more on taking photos of the visitors and booths.
After returning the Fuji XT-1, I went back to Panasonic to see again the GM-5, which ended up being my personal highlight of Photokina 2014.
