Tested! Fujinon XF 35mm f/2R WR | Mike Mander

I recently received my own personal, brand new Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 lens, in silver of course, to match my silver X-E2. Actually, the combination looks rather retro and very nice to me, like an old Leica lens or even an old silver Hasselblad lens in miniature! The WR designation means it is resistant against moisture and dust ingress, joining the 16mm f/1.4 and 90mm f/2 lenses as the only primes with WR. How does it perform optically, you might be wondering? Well firstly, have a look at gallery of sample images by clicking on the above image, then continue reading below……..

Winter Imagery with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 | Olaf Sztaba

The first time we worked with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 lens we were impressed with its optics, superb image stabilization and build/weather sealing, but disappointed by its size and weight. As a result, we decided not to add this lens to our bag. After a few weeks we had another an opportunity, this time while travelling to Death Valley, California. Upon returning from this trip we were dazzled by this lens’ rendering, sharpness and, most importantly, ability to cushion camera shake (we were mostly shooting from the hand). Then we had a photo session booked with an attractive couple and decided to do it exclusively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 lens. We had such a good time and great results – all shooting by hand – that this time we decided to purchase this lens as our only telephoto zoom……….

Making your images supersized with Photoshop CC | Richard Curtis

I’ve been asked a few times over the past few weeks about how to make images really big. Luckily Photoshop CC had a feature enhancement a while ago now which is perfect for this job. Let us take this example, below is a picture that i shot at the White Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. One request this week from a UK based Photographer was to upsize to 600cm on the long edge. Let’s have a look and see how this is possible in Photoshop CC. The Image upsize feature is available under the Image / Image Size menu option (marked in Red below). Once the dialog is open, there is an option to choose Bicubic Smoother or Sharper. These can be used depending on if the image was being made smaller or larger. The Automatic option could however, be used and it would select the correct option for you………

The Gear that I Use: The Fujifilm XT10 review | Henry F. Smith

There are times, when something or someone looks unattractive on first glance, but becomes much more attractive upon making your acquaintance. I think of my wife’s first impressions of me when we were in college. Apparently over time, I kinda’ grew on her. Thus it was with me, and the new Fujifilm XT10. I remember seeing the announcement on Dpreview back last May as “a smaller and lighter version of the X-T1”. Now having handled and shot an XT1, I knew that camera was already quite modest in size and frankly could not figure out why Fujifilm would’ve developed what looked to me like a watered-down version…….

A Visit to Park Slope With The Fuji XF 35mm F2 Lens | Patrick Leong

I went over to Park Slope yesterday to visit a friend because he’s hugely into photography like me, and he wanted to see the new Fuji XF 35mm F2 R WR lens.  For those who don’t know, Park Slope is part of Brooklyn. I don’t visit it much but I should.  It actually has some great places to eat, and a beautiful park (Prospect Park) whose designers, I believe, also designed Central Park. In addition to bringing the XF 35mm F2 lens and my X-T1, I also brought along my XF 35mm F1.4 and my tripod.  As I mentioned earlier, my friend is also into photography, so he had no problem or should I say, he didn’t get bored assisting me in taking some comparison shots between the two lenses.  I wanted these photos because in addition to my upcoming review of the 35mm F2, I thought it would be cool to write up a comparison between the two Fuji 35mm lenses……..

Fuji 35mm f/1.4 vs. Fuji 35mm f/2 | Admiring Light

Today, I’m pitting the original lens for the X-Series, the venerable XF 35mm f/1.4 R against the new normal prime, the XF 35mm f/2 R WR, a slightly more compact and weather resistant lens that has just been released for the X-Series of interchangeable lens cameras.  The lenses carry the same field of view and have a one stop difference in aperture.  Which should you get?  Is the new lens better than the relatively good 35mm f/1.4?  Let’s find out. The two lenses share a lot in common, but differ in several key ways.  Both lenses are constructed with a solid metal shell and are roughly the same overall size.  The new XF 35mm f/2 tapers towards the end of the lens and is very slightly shorter, so it looks smaller than it really is.  The 35mm f/2 is a bit more solidly constructed than its f/1.4 brother, and has some weather resistance as well, but both are well-built………..

Cinque Terre in Photos | Italy | Daniel Korzeniewski

I am coming from a few days in Tuscany. I just left the rented car in La Spezia and boarded the train to Cinque Terre. This is my last stop for my long-overdue and first trip to Italy. I’m still marveling at what I’ve just experienced in a region dotted with medieval hill towns and rich scenery, and I really don’t know what to expect. Fortunately, the Trenitalia ride is short and in less than ten minutes I’ve already figured out that I’ll have a blast here too. The Cinque Terre translates into “five lands.” Five lands that are so unique, all of them have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites since 1997……..

Fujinon X Lens: Primes – Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR (Tested) | SLRgear

The Fujinon XF 90mm ƒ/2 R LM WR telephoto lens has been shipping since the summer of 2015, and we’ve finally had an opportunity to get it into our test lab. Up until now, our sharpest lens has been the Sigma 70mm ƒ/2.8 macro, but that crown is about to handed over to the Fuji 90mm. The Fuji 90mm ƒ/2 was designed to fit onto the X-mount of Fuji bodies, where it provides an effective field of view of around 137mm, in 35mm film terms. It ships with a round lens hood, takes 62mm filters, and is available now for around $800. Sharpness. After around eight years of reviewing lenses for SLRgear.com, there aren’t many cases where one’s jaw drops when looking at a blur chart. This was one of them. There actually isn’t much to report on in this category of the review: the lens is spectacularly tack-sharp, at all apertures, even wide open at ƒ/2. Diffraction limiting sets in at ƒ/11, where it still remains tack-sharp; only at ƒ/16 do we note a hint of image degradation due to diffraction. In short, it doesn’t get much sharper than this……….

Fuji X100T: First impressions | Roger Marc

This is not the review. It’s just a first impression of the X100T. The full review will be up in a few weeks. All the images in this post are Straight out of camera Jpegs unless specified. We were in a market for small camera, something that one could carry around all day. Sure the A7, which is my main camera, is considered small, but I needed something smaller, kinda  like a point and shoot but with top notch image quality… I narrowed down the search to 3 cameras The Rx100 mkIV, the leica 109 and the fuji x100s. I ended up buying the X100T. More on that choice in the review……..
