    Just got my X-T1 with 18-135mm yesterday and I spent the morning getting it set up how I wanted it and fired off a few test frames. Everything seemed in order. I checked the forecast and shrugged off the chance of showers (weather sealed = cocky) and headed out to the internationally renowned botanical gardens that is 5 minutes from my house.

    I don't claim any of these to be great art. And I haven't been shooting much so I'm pretty rusty. And I'm sorry if it's a bit tulip-heavy (but you gotta shoot what's in bloom). Now with apologies out of the way, here's my best of the day. Most of them are straight of the camera......a couple of them have been over-tweaked (as is my wont). Hope you enjoy them.

    tried the in-camera panorama feature to try and capture the award winning rose garden (I'll definitely be back when the roses are in bloom....should be pretty amazing)....
