Fuji X-E1

Scotland’s National Airshow | Jeff Carter

Yesterday I posted 20+ images from the Red Arrows display at the National Airshow at East Fortune on Saturday and today here are another 50+ images from a great day out in East Lothian. The airshow gave me a great opportunity to capture people images as well as aircraft, both moving and static, with a combination of the Fujifilm X-T1 and X-T10 fitted with the XF16mm f1.4, XF90mm f2 or XF50-140mm f2.8 lenses. Most of the people shots were captured on the 90mm f2 and this is a stunning street lens.  The 135mm equivalent focal length allowed me to stand further away than if I was using the 56mm f1.2 and it isn’t as big on the camera as the 50-140mm zoom.  I also used the X-T10 and the 90mm to capture some aerial action shots, including the image of the TRIG sponsored Pitts Specials above and the four Red Arrow images at the bottom of the page……

I used to be a prime guy… FujiFilm XF 50-140 | Doug Shobbrook

Up until recently I was proud to call myself a ‚prime shooter‘.  My camera bag was full of sharp, fast, Fuji prime lenses.  The first two lenses I purchased when buying my X-T1 were the 14mm f2.8 and the 35mm f1.4  After a few weeks, I returned to my camera store to pick up the 23mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2, my set of ‚primes‘ was complete. These four lenses, along with my trusty Fuji x100s served me well for over a year while living in Cambodia. They were small, light and sharp and suited my style of photography. They allowed me to get up close to and interact with my subjects in a ‚non-threatening‘ manner due to their discrete size when matched with the X-T1.  Since returning to Australia I’ve continued to shoot portraits, however Buddhist monks have been replaced with Brisbane families and rice farmers with fashion bloggers.  In this new environment I’ve found myself shooting most of my portrait sessions primarily with the Fuji 56mm f1.2. My need to stay discrete had been replaced by the need for ‚extra reach‘ and an ability to isolate my subject from an undesirable background……

Inspiration: Thomas Menk | Fuji vs. Fuji

As a reader of this site, you almost certainly already know Thomas Menk as the hardest working guy in Fuji curation. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the appearance his work as a photographer in my Twitter feed even more. While I’ve always enjoyed Thomas’ photography, I really like the the images he’s been posting from a recent workshop in Venice. The processing is sublime. There’s a feel to them that I haven’t seen from him before that stops me from scrolling, and compells me to just enjoy the image…….

Fujinon X Lens: Primes – Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR (Tested) | SLRgear

The Fujinon XF 16mm ƒ/1.4 R WR was released in May 2015, offering a 24mm-equivalent field of view with a very fast aperture. The lens also boasts weather resistance with 9 seals in 8 areas of the lens. The lens uses the XF mount and works with Fuji’s X-series of digital cameras. The lens ships with a petal-shaped hood, accepts 67mm filters, and is available now for around $1,000.

Sharpness
The Fujinon 16mm produces very sharp images, though its sharpest performance is only obtained when the lens is stopped down to ƒ/2.8. Used at its widest aperture of ƒ/1.4, the resulting image has a central area of sharpness in the middle of the frame, with moderate but not severe corner softness out at the edges. Stopping down reduces the impact of corner softness; stopping down to ƒ/4 produces results which are almost tack-sharp, and these results are essentially the same with the lens stopped to subsequently smaller apertures. Diffraction limiting begins to set in at ƒ/8, but overall sharpness isn’t really impacted until ƒ/11, where edge-to-edge sharpness is just slightly soft. Fully stopped-down at ƒ/16, the lens produces images that are somewhat soft, but not exceptionally so.

Chromatic Aberration
Results for chromatic aberration were excellent; looking at the sample images, I’m hard-pressed to see any color shifts at all………

Fuji 16mm f/1.4 lens review | William Brawley

Fujifilm X-series users have no shortage of excellent prime lenses, with a whole set ranging from 14mm to 90mm. In April of this year, Fujifilm introduced a new member to their range of wide-angle prime lenses, the XF 16mm f/1.4R WR. Offering not only a much wider f/1.4 aperture than their 14mm and 18mm compatriots, the 16mm lens is also the first Fujifilm prime to feature weather sealing (the other being the recently announced 90mm macro). Taking the lens for a spin, the new Fuji 16mm f/1.4 lens produces excellent results, with great sharpness — especially stopped down a bit — and its other optical qualities are top-notch. The build quality is also impressive and feels great in the hand just like other Fuji primes we’ve tested. And, as the „WR“ in the name indicates, the lens is dust- and moisture-sealed and can operate down to -10 degrees C. For all the details from our thorough, hands-on review, including analysis of image quality as well as handling characteristics, and autofocus performance…….

The sharpshooter: Fuji’s 50-140mm f/2.8 lens | Vik Sandhu

I switched from Canon to Fuji for a number of reasons, the obvious one being the compactness of the Fuji X system. For me there’s no doubt that mirrorless bodies and smaller lenses are more fun and freeing than the heavyweight Canon 5D Mark III and full frame glass I used to own. I ended up using the D-SLR purely for business and the Fuji X-Pro1 and X100/s for pleasure, but when photography isn’t your full-time profession I saw little reason to continue with this demarcation. So I sold all of my Canon kit and immersed myself into the Fuji X eco-system, purchasing the X-T1 to replace the 5D Mark III (and eventually the X100T to replace the X100S)……..

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR | Jordan Steele

Fuji’s hard work at fleshing out their X series lineup continues at a frantic pace.  Today I review the brand new XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR, a lens that has the field of view of the classic 135mm long-portrait lens that has been a staple of many systems over the years. The 90mm f/2 completes Fuji’s standard prime kit, and has been highly anticipated.  Early reports point to this lens being simply stunning, so I was eager to get my hands on it.  Let’s dive in. If you already own a few Fuji X-series prime lenses, then you have a good idea of the construction of the 90mm f/2.  The 90mm f/2 has an all-metal exterior construction with a broad focus ring and a dedicated aperture ring.  The lens is solidly constructed with no creaks or wobbles and feels like a very high-end piece of kit…….

Summer Life | Adriel Henderson

It’s been a hot summer! Here in Oregon we’ve been breaking heat records – consistently in the upper 90’s, some days over 100. With little rain, the lakes are low and the sky is a yellow haze. Vintage Instagram, no filter needed. Honestly, I haven’t pulled the little Fuji X out as much as I should. My excuse? Partly the heat, mostly the endless list of projects that seem to accompany summer. But there have been a few occasions here and there. My eldest, David, turned 18, graduated High School, and picked up his driving license – all within a handful of weeks! Certainly some proud dad moments there…….

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90 mm f/2 R LM WR review | Lenstip.com

Pros:

  • solid and sealed casing,
  • sensational image quality in the frame centre,
  • good image resolution on the edge of the frame,
  • slight longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • negligible lateral chromatic aberration,
  • imperceptible spherical aberration,
  • almost zero distortion,
  • excellent coma correction,
  • low astigmatism,
  • nice blur areas,
  • moderate vignetting,
  • silent and accurate autofocus.

Cons:

  • high price,
  • on stopping down the aperture work against bright light leaves a lot to be desired.

I admit that after the test of that lens my impressions are a bit mixed. On the one hand you get an excellent instrument, performing very well in almost all categories. It features a solid, sealed casing of good quality, its image resolution is brilliant already from the maximum relative aperture with record-breaking values on slight stopping down and overall most of optical aberrations are corrected very well………

Fujinon 90mm f/2 R LM WR Review: Break out the piggy bank |
Bill Palmer

This is possibly the quickest review I have ever written, but I wanted to get the word out about the Fujinon 90mm f/2 R LM WR (the Fuji XF 90 to its friends). This is the lens that I have been waiting for. Save your pennies. Break the piggybank. Max that card. Pawn your granny. Get one. Now. Back in the day, when I used on a regular basis Leica M lenses and bodies (proper, film ones) I had a „full set“ of glass ranging from 15mm (Voigtländer) through 28, 35, 50, 75, 90 and 135mm.  The „holy trinity“ of Leica was of course 35-50-90 and with that combination one could – and I did – shoot pretty well everything. But there were times when it was necessary to go a little bit wider or longer. The Leica range in M-mount (forgetting for a moment the Visoflex) topped out at 135mm for the simple reason that that was the longest focal length that could accurately be focused on the M rangefinder base length.  Contax went to 180mm, of course, with their rangefinder (the „Olympic Sonnar“ was legendary and rightly so) but their cameras were a little wider in the base length and hence more accurate at the top end…….
