    My hometown was lucky enough to be the World Premier site. Wow.

    No flash allowed. Brought the X-T2, 16 1.4 and 35 1.4. Shot at 12,800 ISO as it wasn't particularly bright in there. The show will be in Philadelphia 5 months from now.

    Highly recommended - along with the IMAX movie that complements the exhibit - Mysteries of China.

    Depictions of the artisans that made the warriors (and were subsequently killed so that they wouldn't reveal their location!

    Every one of the statues has a unique face.

    Nicely done. I particularly like the ones with the shallow depth of field.

    Since they were shot at 12,800 ISO, I am surprised to see so little noise in these pictures. Well done.

    Glad you shot these pics on a Fujifilm. Really good job!

    Gotta love the 1.4 Fujinon lenses. Perfect for a setting such as this.
    I agree. In the past I was reluctant to go beyond 6400 but for capturing the memories- IMO 12,800 worked just fine.

    You're going to love your Fuji gear even more - watch out! :)


    Thanks for the kind words, all. It was pretty amusing to see a couple of Canikon users lugging around DSLRs with what looked to be the 70-200 zooms. Super unwieldy compared to a X camera.
