Fuji X-E2 is great for meetings

I am on my feet for the second day of a four day meeting. The day starts around 6 am and goes past midnight every day.

Walking around from place to place with gear for this many hours can take its toll on you.

The Fujifilm X-E2 holds together the dynamic range that I am seeing regularly at this meeting. I love the color and the detail it is capturing.

My only regret for this meeting is I only have the one Fuji X-E2.  If I had two I could run around with just two lenses and pretty much get everything I need with the cameras. I would keep the 18-55mm on one camera and for the second camera I would have the 55-200mm.

Of course the only downside I see with the camera at the moment when comparing it to my Nikon D4 cameras for this event is the battery life. So, I am going through about three batteries a day.

The best part of carrying the cameras all day long would be the simple fact of the weight and size. I feel so much better if I all had were two of these cameras and two main lenses.  As soon at the 10-24mm comes out I would add this to the other two and have everything I need to cover meetings.
