Switching from DSLR to Fujifilm | Sebastian Boatca

Yes, it has been almost 2 years since I have made the switch from DSLR to Mirrorless World. To be more precise, from Canon DSLR to Fujifilm. And I am happy with it. I will try to explain in just a few words why did I do it.

As a passionate amateur photographer, I have felt I need something more that what a compact Panasonic Lumix with Leica name on it and superb OIS can offer. This was my first digital camera for photography and I was content. But then I have discovered things like Manual Exposure, Bokeh, fast autofocus, superb glass, lots of lenses, great ergonomics, huge battery autonomy, that “professional look”, full control of your settings, great IQ and superior performance at high ISO levels. All those things were incredibly interesting and made me forget the compact camera, pushing me to experiment more, expect more from my pictures.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16 mm f/1.4 R WR review | Lenstip

Pros

  • solid and sealed casing,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • sensible image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • slight lateral chromatic aberration,
  • low distortion – noticeably lower than the results of the rivals,
  • very low astigmatism,
  • good performance against bright light,
  • silent, fast and accurate autofocus.

Cons:

  • too high longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • distinct vignetting,
  • significant coma,
  • some problems with spherical aberration.

The Fujifilm company took on a very difficult task. Producing a small lens with an angle of view exceeding 80 degrees and an aperture as fast as f/1.4 means raising the standards very high indeed; so high that no other mirrorless system is able to offer a similar combination of parameters. Voigtlander tried to combine very good aperture fastness and a wide angle of view but they failed spectacularly. Fujifilm on the other hand fared much better. Of course there are slip-ups: even though you could expect high vignetting levels the slip-ups concerning weak coma and longitudinal chromatic aberration correction weren’t that obvious. ……

That damn Fujifilm XF50-140mm lens… | Eivind Rohne

Damnit Fujifilm!! Why, oh why did you have to make this lens. I’m amazed. I’m in shock. I’m in love. I’m no longer a “primes are always the best choice” kind of guy… When first unboxing this lens, I went from “shit this lens is heavy”, to “shit this lens is sharp” in just three exposures. I’m not kidding! Three exposures! The XF50-140 lens is actually so sharp I threw away my Philishave razor, and have been shaving with this lens since Fujifilm Nordic lent it to me. Yes, it’s that sharp! I love longer lenses, and there are four main reasons why I reach for a longer lens when I’m shooting:

 

  1. It can clean up a messy background by throwing it out of focus.
  2. With an out of focus background, the subject is more seperated and stands out more from the background.
  3. It can make a boring background more interesting, by turning it into a cascade of blurry highlights and shadows.
  4. It fits my style………

The Fuji XF 16-55 MM LM WR ƒ2.8 (Part 1) | Adam King

Today may be Friday the 13th, but it is also the first day after the US embargo on delivery of Fuji newest XF Zoom, the Fuji XF 16-55 MM LM WR ƒ2.8. I had pre-ordered and arranged for overnight delivery. So I am one of the few with this thing already in hand.  I have a concert lined up for tonight that I’m shooting (G. Love and Special Sauce at the House of Blues Chicago), so the first samples will wait until the follow-up to this in the next couple days. What I can offer are a few shots of the gear, and some very early impressions. This is the first Fuji lens that actually feels large to me. The 18-135 and 55-200 felt slim, and even the 50-140 felt quite compact for the range and aperture it was covering. This feels quite substantial. It carries a 77mm filter size, and weighs in at 655 grams (1.4 lbs)…….

First Impressions: Fujifilm 90mm f2 R LM WR | Chris Gampat

While Fujifilm has had the 56mm f1.2 X lens available, they’ve lacked a longer and more flattering portrait lens. But earlier this year, the company announced their 90mm f2, which has a 135mm equivalent field of view. To date, it’s the company’s biggest prime lens and in some ways is almost as large as the DSLR equivalent that we’ve seen on the market. With a large focusing ring, it’s also quite nice to hold while remaining ergonomically balanced with many of the company’s higher end cameras. The Fujifilm 90mm f2 R LM WR lens has a $949 price point and incorporates weather sealing, seven aperture blades, three extra low dispersion elements, Super EBC lens coatings, and 11 elements in 8 groups. Weighing 1.19lbs, it’s also fairly hefty for a lens designed for a mirrorless camera…….

Seen at 16mm | Valerie Jardin

There is a place I visit regularly in Minneapolis, that’s Architectural Antiques. I know the staff there, they’re super friendly and always let me spend time in some dark corners hunting for treasures with my camera. This week I received the new Fujinon 16mm F/1.4 lens which prompted me to take the XT-1 out of the closet (I’ve been shooting at 23mm with the X100S and now the X100T for so long, I never even think of using a different focal length any more!). This is not a lens review, I don’t do those. I find them boring to read, let alone write them! Just a few pics shot with a pretty incredible lens which I am going to take on the streets once in a while now too. It will by no means replace my X100T for street photography. I don’t think the camera that will, is even born yet! This week the Architectural Antiques had some cool old film reels and canisters lying around the store. I had fun shooting them in very low light with the cool new fast prime. Photographers are never bored!…..

Ein kleiner Bericht zum Fujinon xf16mm f1.4 R WR |
Mehrdad Samak-Abedi

Als ich zum ersten Mal das Fujinon xf16mm f1.4 R WR auf der Roadmap von Fujifilm sah, war ich sofort Feuer und Flamme. Kleinbildäquivalent ergibt es eine Brennweite von 24mm, und mit der Anfangsblende von f1.4 ist das vom Freistellungspotential am APS-C etwa wie ein f1.8 Glas am Kleinbild. Es ist also gerade für meine bevorzugten Genres Street-, Landschaft- und Architekturfotografie ein sehr guter Allrounder. Nun kann man sich fragen, wozu man bei einem Weitwinkel solch eine Lichtstärke benötigt. Zum Freistellen kann dies ja nun nicht wirklich sinnvoll sein. Dann gibt es von Fujifilm schließlich noch das xf14mm f2.8R, welches ich auch besitze. Die Frage, die ich mir also versuche zu beantworten, lautet: Brauche ich das xf16mm zusätzlich, anstatt oder überhaupt? Um mir diese Frage zu beantworten, bat ich Fujifilm DE um ein Testexemplar, welches ich dann auch freundlicherweise kürzlich erhielt. An dieser Stelle mein Dank an Herrn Nierhaus von Fujifilm Deutschland. Bevor ich mich aber langsam an die Antwort herantaste, vorab noch ein wichtiger Hinweis für die Freunde der wissenschaftlichen Tests: diese werdet Ihr hier nicht finden! Zum einen, weil ich es nicht so gut kann wie viele andere sicherlich bessere Quellen. Vor allem aber, weil mich solche Tests meist auch selber nicht interessieren. Ich zeige, außer in Ausnahmefällen, selten unbearbeitete Bilder. Ich fotografiere im Fujifilm Raw Format und bearbeite alle meine Bilder, und das zum Teil extremer als nur das Anpassen von Tiefen/Lichter……..

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR Review | Gary Wolstenholme

Although not as popular as it once was, the 135mm field of view is ideal for portraits, thanks to the flattering effect of compressed perspective. This lens lends itself to that kind of photography well ,with very high sharpness levels in the centre, a fast maximum aperture and quick, accurate focusing. Weather sealing will be a bonus for those who like to venture out when it’s inclement too. Overall, this is an excellent lens that should win over many fans amongst Fujifilm X-series camera owners.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR Pros

  • Very good sharpness in the centre at maximum aperture
  • Outstanding sharpness across the frame when stopped down
  • Relatively lightweight
  • Traditional design
  • Excellent build
  • Weather sealing
  • Quick focusing
  • Low distortion and falloff

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR Cons

  • Focus mechanism can rattle as it is free to move inside the lens when not in use – although this is completely normal!

Liverpool | Rory Prior

Since moving up north three years ago, I’ve been meaning to visit Liverpool. Finally the opportunity arose last month, so I jumped on the train with fellow photographer and Fuji enthusiast Richard Gascoigne, for the one and a half hour journey to Merseyside. I think it’s not a stretch to say modern Liverpool is most famous for The Beatles and its premier league football club, rather than its mercantile history. Like its northern siblings, it suffered a long painful period of stagnation and decline as traditional industries collapsed or were made obsolete. It’s only comparatively recently (the last 20 or so years), that serious efforts have been made to revitalise and regenerate the city. Its skyline now has its fair share of gleaming glass and steel office blocks, standing incongruously with elegant Victorian structures thankfully protected for future generations. Unlike in Leeds and Manchester, the process of regeneration feels less complete, and in many places appears stalled entirely. No where is this more evident than the sprawling northern docks. Listed buildings and world heritage sites lie surrounded by temporary barriers, or locked behind tall metal gates with vast swaths of empty land that no one seems to have much use for……

Schwarzweisse Kappadokien-Erkundung mit dem Fujinon XF 10-24mm |
Feyzi Demirel

Oh Mann! Da stehe ich im Prinzip kurz vor einer Reise in meine „Heimat“ nach Kappadokien und entdecke noch Fotos vom letzten Urlaub dort, die ich noch nicht durchgesehen und bearbeitet habe. Ich habe mich gefragt, warum ich die Fotos vergessen habe, aber den einen Grund habe ich nicht gefunden. Am Wahrscheinlichsten ist es aber, dass ich in der Zwischenzeit zu viele Fotos produziert habe, die eine höhere Priorität hatten. Bei der Durchsicht der Fotos ist mir aber aufgefallen, dass ich mit mehreren Monaten Abstand recht emotionslos und objektiv in der Bewertung sein konnte. Ich denke, dass dieser zeitliche Abstand mitunter ein großer Vorteil sein kann, um Fotos richtig zu bewerten. Eine weitere Sache, die mir aufgefallen ist, war mein aktueller Hang zur Schwarzweiss-Fotografie. Ich weiß zwar genau, was ich daran schätze, wo die Vor- und Nachteile sind, aber dass Farben gerade so dermaßen „Evil“ sind, wundert mich schon. Ist wahrscheinlich nur eine Phase und ich muss da nicht aktiv in die Tiefenanalyse gehen und womöglich justieren……..
