I just bought a new lens to revive my 9-year-old Fujifilm X-T1

Call me crazy, but I recently bought a new lens for my Fujifilm X-T1. 

Nope, you didn’t read that wrong. I still own the original X-T camera released in 2014, and considering it’s nearly a decade old it’s still a brilliant little everyday carry-around. Since I sold my Fujifilm X-T3 it’s sat on my shelf, lensless and useless, but after finding a second-hand XC lens for a bargain price, I thought it was time to bring it out of the shadows.
