This was taken in the fish market in Dubai with the XT-1 and 56mm f/1.2, and there are two things I really like about it. First, the skin tones are accurate, and noticeably better than I would have got with either my Sony A99 or Canon gear if I'd still been using it. I've shot portraits in Dubai since 2007, and often had to correct skin tones (or give up and convert to black and white) but the XT-1 seems to produce OOC images that are a lot closer to reality.

The second thing I like is the sharpness, which is easily comparable to my Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 on the Sony.

All in all then, a good result.
