Fuji X-Pro1

First Look at the Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Dan Bailey

In all my years with SLR and DSLR cameras, I never owed a traditional 35mm lens. Despite its legendary status with street photographers and photojournalists, that focal length never quite felt right for me. It was either too wide, or not quite wide enough. I always went for the classic “Nifty Fifty,” 50mm f/1.4 which was my first lens, and more recently the lighter weight 50mm f/1.8. If I wanted wide, I went for my 24mm /2.8. Originally created for press photography, the standard 35mm f/1.4 is one of the fastest wide angle primes you can buy. Offering great versatility, they can be used for just about anything- landscapes, portraits, still ice, indoors, street, product, and they even shoot relatively close up. (On a crop sensor APC-S or DX camera, you need a 23mm lens to get that classic 35mm view angle.) Fuji’s offering in this range is the XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens. I already have that focal length covered with my 18-55 and my 18-135. However, I’m a sucker for fast primes, and besides, my friend Josh gives it very high praise as his favorite Fuji lens. So, with some camera store credit to burn after trading in all of my DLSR gear, I decided to plunk down and give the Fuji 23 a try………

Detroit WWIM Recap & First Impression of the Fuji XF 14mm | Rivals

During Detroit’s Worldwide InstaMeet (WWIM) I had the opportunity to meet fellow X-Photographer Bryan Minear, he was cool and all, but this post isn’t about him haha, It’s about this beautiful piece of glass he shared with me. The Fujifilm XF 14mm. Now typically I’m not a wide shooter, the XF 18 I own is about as wide as I need any lens, and honestly a XF 23 would replace that if it wasn’t for the huge price difference, but when I had to take this baby out on the streets for a day I figured why not. Now I’m lucky enough to live in Downtown Detroit, where we have a lot of high rise buildings, old textures and the riverwalk… Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of any of this, but I hope the ones below, as well as the text is helpful in deciding if this lens is for you or not……

Review – Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 WR lens | Jonas Jacobsson

The XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 WR lens is the second of Fujifilms new weather resistant lenses with a fast, constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, with this one released just after the XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 WR lens (the review of this lens you can find here). Together with the Fujifilm X-T1 these three make up for a professional type of kit (Fujifilm actually calls it their “Flagship XF zoom”, covering almost any focal length you might need (16-55 mm and 50-140 mm), all in a weather sealed package. This lens also won the TIPA-award for “Best CSC Expert Zoom Lens”. Like the other WR zoom and the X-T1 this lens is also guaranteed to handle operation all the way down to -10 degrees celsius. All the specs about this lens and some more can be found over att Fujifilms official website. (Thanks also to Fujifilm Nordic for lending me this lens.) I have been testing this lens now for a while, in all kinds of situations, to see how well it performs and why it may (or not) be the lens for you. Here are some short ups and downs of the lens that I have experienced durng my testing……..

New from Fuji……. | Bill Fortney

Probably no one, that is a Fuji fan or user,  is unaware of the newest lens to be released shortly. The 16mm f 1.4 is yet another of Fuji’s stellar fast lenses.  Joining the 23mm f 1.4 (35mm equiv.), the 35mm f 1.4 (50mm equiv.) and the 56mm f 1.2 (85mm equiv.)  the 16 fills that critical 24mm equivalent spot with real speed!!!!  It is close to the same size and weight of the 23mm, which is to say, in the three bears story form;  “just right”.  The lens I got to shoot at the Fuji National Sales Meeting in Phoenix this week was a late prototype, very, very close to a production lens. How good is it?  If the production model is any sharper it will have to come with warning label about picking it up, you just might cut yourself! ……

A Modern Classic – Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Mirrorless Minutes

Being retired I have a lot of time to think about silly things. I have often thought if I was only allowed to have one lens on my Fuji X-T1 which one would I choose. The three lenses that immediately came to mind were the XF 23mm f/1.4 R, the XF 35mm f/1.4 R and the XF 56mm f/1.2 R.  Each one of these lenses are splendid examples of the lens making art and Fuji has been making outstanding lenses for a very long time. At first I thought my choice would be the 35mm focal length which equates to approximately 50mm on an APS-C sensor camera.  It’s a reasonable focal length and to most people this represents the normal field of view for human eyesight. Then I started thinking about how much I love my Fuji X100 fixed lens camera which is equipped with a 23mm f/2.0 lens that gives the field of view of a 35mm lens on an APS-C sensor camera (actually to be perfectly honest if I was only allowed to have one camera any one of the X100/X100S/X100T series of cameras would be it). So that led me to the conclusion that if I was only allowed one lens the 23mm would be it……..

Does Fuji Cheat with its Sensors? | Nasim Mansurov

When testing cameras, it is not unusual to see a situation when one camera can produce results a bit darker or brighter than another. In some cases, lenses are to blame for this variance, since most lenses cannot ideally transmit all of the incoming light. What this means, is that a lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8 could potentially transmit less light, which could be equivalent to say f/3.5 in terms of brightness. The latter number is what is often referred to as a “T-stop”, or Transmission-stop, which is basically an adjusted f-stop that takes into account this light loss. In other cases, the camera itself can be the source of brightness variance. Although manufacturers are supposed to adhere to an ISO standard that guides the process of determining the right brightness level for each ISO, there is usually still some variance between not only brands, but also between specific camera models. We won’t get into the question of why there are such variances. Instead, we will concentrate on implications of such variances to camera sensor comparisons and ratings. Particularly, we will be looking at exposure variances in Fuji cameras, such as the Fuji X-T1. Many photographers, including myself, have been fond of the way Fuji sensors render images, outputting very clean and pleasant-looking images, even at high ISOs. But are those ISOs real? And is Fuji doing something shady to make its images look better? Let’s take a closer look…..

Fujinon 10-24mm | Jorge F Marques

So, let’s talk about the Fujinon 10-24 mm f/4. I had mixed feelings about this lens at first, primarily  because I enjoyed the Canon 16-35 mm f/2.8 II so much. There’s always some pain when we decide to change systems (or anything in our lives, I guess), so Fuji had big shoes to fill. Again, this is not a technical review. There are many people that talk about chromatic aberrations, distortions and falloff, so if that’s what you want you’d better stop here. I only intend to talk about the results I achieved and, frankly, whether or not it gives me what I need. In one word, yes. It isn’t perfect, but yes. My main concern is the flare. Although beautiful at most times, it’s a bit excessive when shot at direct sunlight and it can be an issue. It’s definitely hard to control and much more unpredictable than my previous experiences with wide angle lenses.  Another thing that never happened to me was the reflection of the letters in the front of the lens on the filter. So if you use one (I always use a UV in all my lenses), beware that it can show up in your pictures in direct sunlight. A problem? Not really, but rather a inconvenience………

One Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Peter Dareth Evans

The above photo – taken a couple of days after grabbing the X-Pro1 with the bundled 18mm f/2 lens, that was when I kind of fell in love. It’s plenty sharp with beautiful colours and a natural filmic character to its unobtrusive noise at high ISO. What’s more, the quiet shutter-click and compact old school styling made it completely unobtrusive. After a chat about the curious camera, the blacksmith just let me work the scene, with nary a further glance. Yes, it’s been one year now that I’ve been shooting with my X-Pro1. Here are some thoughts on my time with Fuji’s first X-Trans camera and how I’ve found the shooting experience, and whether it might be the right camera for you…

Fuji X-Pro1 – Should you still buy one? | Dave Young

For a camera that is just 3 years old the Fuji X-Pro1 is one of those cameras that polarises opinion in so many ways. First announced back in January 2012 and launched in March 2012, the X-Pro1 is likely to go down as a classic. It was the flagship model that fully launched Fuji into interchangeable lens systems and in part thanks to the hybrid viewfinder allowing photographers the option of choosing between an optical finder (OVF) and an electronic view (EVF), along with previews of depth of field and white balance.  It’s a camera that in many ways is tough to better and for many Fujiholics, the wait continues for the release of the X-Pro2, a new improved X-Pro1, once more trail blazing the Fuji name. The question many still ask though, is should you still invest your money in an X-Pro1 now, with Fuji moving forward with revised technology, and the X-Pro1 slowly getting left behind. The release of Fuji’s XT-1 certainly upped the game for Fuji, even though the styling was somewhat different to the X-Pro1. It features no rangefinder style cues like the X-Pro1 has but the technology is certainly a step on from the X-Pro1………

Fuji 50-140mm review: A wonderfuly fast telephoto | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

The Fuji 50-160mm is an amazing lens. It’s beautiful, fast and has great stabilization. It allows you to get very close and personal without physically doing so. If you are used to wider angles, the change is pretty radical, but once you get use to it, the lens is magic with superb performance and creamy Bokeh……..
