Pretty Picton, Sandbanks and Fuji's 27mm

Every year Eddie and I like to take a little mini trip out to Sandbanks Provincial Park.  It really is the most beautiful beach within a couple of hours from here.  Usually I want to bring a camera to take photographs but in the past few years I've been leaving the heavy Nikon D800 at home in favour of the iPhone.

Things are different since I've converted all my camera equipment to the Fuji system.   I am now able to bring along a quality camera in my beach bag.   Even though I have several lenses I decided to bring along only one lens with my Fuji XT1.   I decided for the sake of convenience to try and stick to one focal length and brought along the 27mm (equivalent to 41mm in 35mm format) had given me to try out.  I could have also brought the 35mm 1.4 but the 27mm was 100g lighter so that was the deciding factor.   I must say after a full day, I absolutely love this lens!  It weighs only 78 grams making it nice and light to carry around all day when you want to be doing other things as well... like swimming!  :)  The combination of Fuji's XT1 with the 27mm is almost as compact and light as Fuji's much loved X100S which I've been thinking I might like to add to my kit however this teeny 27mm pancake lens pretty much nixes my need for the X100s.   Here are some favourites from the day.
