Fuji X-E1

A visit to Minninglow | Nick Lukey

Last week I pulled the trigger on a new lens, one that I swore i wasn’t going to purchase. The Fuji 10-24mm arrived a few days ago, but due to other commitment,s and the weather I had not had a chance to shoot outdoors with it much. This lens will replace the legendary 14mm, one lens I thought i would never change. So what was it like out in the field?  Quite simply it’s outstanding. So with the promise of some spring sunshine, I took off from the gallery a little early and headed of to Minninglow near Parwich. It’s been a year since I last visited the place, and I am always happy to be back for a wander round the Bronze age site. It’s a great place to spend an hour or two, very easy access from the Tissington trail. So how does the 10-24mm compare to my much loved 14mm. Well I can say without a doubt that it seems to me to be pretty equal, maybe the 14mm edges it in micro contrast just. The 14mm has the aperture ring, and it’s a shame that its not present on the ultra wide. However the differences in extra viewing real estate is the real issue for me…….

Choosing between the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6,
and 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Tom Grill

In my latest hands-on review of the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8 I mentioned that with this lens Fuji expands its lens system with a redundancy that covers more that one solution to the same optical coverage. For the consumer, this means more choice within the various focal length categories allowing photographers to tailor their lens choices to the specific way they use their equipment. A serious landscape photographer has very different equipment needs than a still life or lifestyle photographer, just as a photographer using the equipment casually has a different criteria than a pro who relies on it to make a living. I have received a number of emails from readers asking which of the three lenses I would recommend based upon specific criteria. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic, and here it is. Here is one of the questions I received recently:

“I was thinking of buying the Fuji 18-135 as a convenient lens to used round the salt mashes, mudflats and coastal areas where I live. However the 16-55 seems to be having rave reviews, including your just published  review……..

PRIME TIME in NEW YORK with the FUJIFILM XF 23mm 1.4 | Björn Moerman

Whenever I go to the Big Apple, I try to do at least a few hours of hardcore street-photography, preferably shooting Black and White with a prime lens. For you non-photographers out there, a prime lens is a lens with a fixed focal lens; the opposite of a zoom. As an example, your iPhone or Android phones all have prime lenses. Last week, I got a Fujinon XF 23mm f1.4 lens on loan from Fujifilm Middle East, which I took to New York. I do own the 27mm pancake lens (right in the image above), but have been hesitating to purchase the 27mm (left in image above) for a while. What is below, is not going to be a full on review, but rather a practical look on how I used the lens for my street photography in New York city. So why a 23mm prime? Depending on who you speak to, scientists claim that humans see around a 24 to 35mm focal length. Given I shot the lens on a 1.5 cropped sensor, i.e. Fujifilm X-T1; the 23mm becomes a 35mm full frame equivalent…….

Iridient Developer Fujifilm X-Trans Presets | Wim Arys

Brian Griffith from Iridient Developer just released a preset pack that attempts to reproduce the Fujifilm in-camera film styles. These include all highly regarded Standard/Provia, Vivid/Velvia, Soft/Astia, ProNegStd, ProNegHi, Classic Chrome, Monochrome, Monochrome+G, Monochrome+Ye, Monochrome+R and Sepia film emulations. You’ll also find the “neutral” styles which are not intended to mimic any of the in-camera looks but should give a very good colorimetric color match to standard color reference charts such as the ColorCheckerSG and IT8. These presets were produced without any assistance from Fujifilm wand may not give absolutely identical results to the in-camera processing. These presets are intended for use with the 16MP APS-C sensor models and have not been tested with the compact 12MP X-Trans models like the X30 or XQ2. They will not provide a good color match on compact X-Trans models due to the different sensor hardware being used.

16-55mm f/2.8 vs. 18-55mm f/2.8-4 vs. 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 | Fuji vs. Fuji

The pro standard zoom has long been a staple in almost every pro photographer’s bag. They are intended to be workhorses that can take anything we can throw at them. Low light, inclement weather, fast-moving subjects, you name it. At long last, Fuji’s standard f/2.8 zoom is available, which, along with the 50-140mm f/2.8 fills the two biggest gaps in their lens lineup. We could achieve these focal lengths before, but never with a constant aperture, and outside of 18mm, never at a maximum aperture of f/2.8. This piece will explore in-depth what you get for your extra money, aside from more size and weight…….

18-135mm vs. 50-140mm vs. 55-200mm | Fuji vs. Fuji

With the advent of the 50-140mm f/2.8, Fuji X-Series owners now have 3 ways of reaching beyond 200mm in 35mm equivalence. The first two releases—Fuji’s FUJINON XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS and FUJINON XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS WR—are both geared more towards the casual shooter. Fuji’s latest telephoto zoom offering—complete with premium-looking Red XF Zoom Badge—is the 50-140mm f/2.8, and has a significantly more “pro” feel to it. As we’ll see, this is a common theme for these three lenses, and should serve as an easy way for readers to decide which lens is best for them……

Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8 review | Cameralabs

The Fujinon XF 16-55mm f2.8 is a high-end general-purpose zoom lens for Fujifilm’s range of X-mount mirrorless cameras. Announced in January 2015, it’s the third standard zoom for the X series, following the XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 kit zoom and the more recent XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6. Mounted on an X-series body, the XF 16-55mm delivers a useful general-purpose range that starts at an equivalent of 24mm for wide-angle coverage and ends at a short telephoto equivalent of 83mm that’s ideal for details or portraits. It features a constant f2.8 focal ratio throughout the optical range and the benefit of weather-sealing, making it the ideal partner for the rugged XT1 body. It also complements the existing XF 50-140mm which shares a constant f2.8 focal ratio and weather sealing. Strangely absent from the XF 16-55mm f2.8 though is optical stabilization, omitted to achieve the best image quality and 24mm equivalent coverage. I understand Fuji’s reasons, but the decision will inevitably turn some potential buyers towards the cheaper XF 18-55mm or the broader XF 18-135mm. There are of course other pros and cons to all three models and in my review I’ll help you make the right choice for your needs and budget. Since so many reviews will directly compare these general-purpose options, I thought I’d also include some comparisons with the ultra-wide XF 10-24mm which shares a range of focal lengths……..

Closer – An MCEX-11 review | Jonas Rask

Not a macro photographer, not a macro photographer, not a macro photographer. But I need to try this! Thats me in a nutshell. My disciplin prohibits, but my curiosity prevails. I guess this is a good thing, since expansion of skills is valuable to an extent. Whats great about todays photography world is that tech gives you limitless options. There’s an easy-to-grab way for every need, style and imagination. Always a bit annoyed with the close-focus distance of many of my Fujinon lenses, though not as bad as the old Leica/Voigtlander rangefinder lenses, I saw the focus charts and thought this would be fun to try out. Little did I know, that this little tube would make my lenses so incredibly versatile. The MCEX-11…….

Love is the Fuji 35mm 1.4 | Richard Wood

Ok so from the title of the blog you can probably surmise that I have a bit of a thing for the 35mm 1.4 from Fuji, guess I’d better tell you why. I’ve had the 35mm (53mm equivalent.) since late November 2014 when Fuji UK sent me a demo model and it’s given me the chance to put it through it’s paces as a portrait lens on the X-T1. The lens like all of the Fuji range is very well made and to compliment the lens construction Fuji provides a metal hood that with it’s rectangular shape has divided opinion – personally I love it, I think it makes the setup very cool looking with a nod to the kind of design that were available on vintage Leica & Voightlander glass. The aperture ring has a nice click to it and the manual focus is smooth, however being one of the elder statesman of the Fuji lens lineup it can when used in autofocus mode hunt around now and again and sometimes fail to achieve focus in very low light conditions. However for the vast majority of normal shooting it is fast and silent……

Fuji XF 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom | Tom Grill

As one of the most popular focal length zoom ranges of many pro photographers, the Fuji 16-55mm has been eagerly awaited as a complement to the already released Fuji XF 55-140mm f/2.8 zoom providing an f/2.8 focal length range from an equivalent 24mm to 210mm. Throw in the Fuji 10-24mm f/4 lens and you have a all you need optically to cover almost anything there is.  And “why not a 10-24mm f/2.8″ you may ask. Because it would be huge and fly in the face of what an APS mirrorless system is all about, namely light weight, compact size. Compactness and size is one of the reasons the 16-55mm does not image stabilization. It would have added much to the bulk and weight, not to mention the price. There has been a lot of vocal criticism of this missing feature, but both Nikon and Canon have gotten away with a lack of IS in their equivalent zooms for years. Image stabilization, while a welcome asset, is not as necessary on shorter lenses as it is on longer lenses where the longer focal lengths magnify the motion in proportion to their length.  As I mentioned in my announcement of this lens, an old photographers rule of thumb is that it takes a shutter speed approximately equal to the focal length to be able to hand-hold a lens. With that dictum in mind, it would only take 1/25 second to safely hand hold a 24mm lens, but about 1/250 second to have the same hand-held control over a 200mm lens. Enough said on that point. This lens doesn’t have OIS. If you require it, this lens is not for you……
