I'm trying to use the following expression in the geometry generator in a QGIS layer to show a 1-mi boundary around points:

buffer(transform($geometry, 'EPSG:4326', 'EPSG:2877'), 5280)

However, the buffer doesn't show

To test, if I transform to the source to and from EPSG:4326, the buffer does work (but obviously doesn't display correctly).

What is it about the EPSG:2877 I'm using that is causing the problem?

    interesting, I get the same behavior with other CRS (4326 vs 3857). Indeed it fails just with the transform (shown as point). The function itself is fine, as if used as a label is shows the proper projected coords. – JGH Jan 11 '18 at 19:23
