Shiga & Kyoto in Fall

With my X-T3 and three prime lenses I did an early morning shoot, going from Otsu all the way to Arashiyama. It was also a chance to fully test my new Sigma 56mm, relatively newly released for the Fuji X-mount.

First stop: Choan-ji (長安寺). Usually an unremarkable, lonely and out of the way temple it really comes to life in Fall, especially early in the a.m..

FUJIFILM X-T3 1/110 second F/5.6 ISO 320 56 mm

The giant ginkgo tree left a brilliant yellow carpet.

The Sigma has fast and accurate auto-focus. It didn't miss a single shot during the day. With the lens's large f/1.4 aperture, it's the perfect match for the Fuji and its great colours. It also produces beautifully soft and creamy bokeh.
