I don't shoot weddings. I don't take portraits. In fact, my photography is generally in pursuit of avoiding humans. So why would I buy what is considered the top portraiture and people lens in the Fuji lineup? 


I use this lens for subject and self-isolation. 


I sold my X100T and replaced it with a used X-E3. Like the X100T, the X-E3 will live in my work bag or my coat pocket as a small, light, take anywhere camera. However, unlike the X100T, the X-E3 will give me the option to swap lenses. The perfect lens to keep X-E3 as svelte as the X100T is the Fuji 27mm pancake lens. 

I used to own the Fuji 27mm but sold along with my original X-E1 to buy the X100T which I sold to buy the X-E3 which would benefit the most from the 27mm. This is a vicious cycle with dangerous consequences. Repurchasing a lens that I sold would justify my wife killing me and this time I'd be playing on Permadeath mode. So for the sake of my health and marriage, I decided fly below the financial radar and purchase the small, inexpensive manual focusing, Pergear 25mm f1.8 lens
