Fuji X-Pro1

Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2 8 | Wim Arys

Conclusion

The Fuji X-T1 has been adopted by many professional photographers and they seem keen on keeping even the most demanding pro’s happy. Fuji was already renowned for their nice range of lenses, and anyone who has switched to another brand will tell you that’s the main thing they miss. It’s astonishing that they actually keep improving on the XF lens range designs and this is clearly noticeable in terms of features and performance. Now let’s get the elephant out of the room : there is no optical image stabilisation incorporated in this lens. Yes this will hurt sales, and I would have preferred it to be included in the XF1655, just because it would have made it even easier to use. I’m spoiled with the general performance of the XF 50-140 tele-zoom, where I rarely have a missed shot thanks to that OIS image stabilisation. You do need to take more care when focussing with the Fujinon XF 16-55 if you don’t want to have too many missed shots. Incorporating an image stabilisation system would probably have increased size, weight and price, but that would not have been a real issue for me personally. OK, this zoom is already quite large, and perhaps at the limits of what you’d expect from a mirror-less system, but it is still very compact compared to DSLR lenses…….

Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR ASPH | PhotographyBLOG

The upcoming Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R lens will be weather-resistant. The Fujifilm X World Facebook page has published an image of the Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR ASPH lens with “WR” included, which denotes “weather resistant” on other Fujifilm lenses. They also comment “And, today we are happy to make an announcement on the development of a new lens; XF35mmF2 R, that would definitely be another killer lens for such use. Whether you prefer to shoot wide angle or standard angle of view, this lens is definitely to look out for. Stay tuned for its size, performance, and image quality, soon to come in 2015.”……

Fuji XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens Review | Planopora

The new “pro” zoom from Fuji is finally starting to hit the streets. My favorite local camera store, Competitive Cameras, actually got two in last weekend. The first guy on the list drove halfway across the state of Texas to get his. I was number two. I became a fan of Fuji when they released the XT-1 last year. It had the feel of the manual cameras I was used to from the days of film, but with a size and feature set of a modern digital camera. I also really loved the size and build quality of their prime lenses. The 23mm and 56mm are incredible lenses. Combined with the XT-1, they make for a potent street shooting and travel combination. Which brings us to their new big brother, the XF 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom. This definitely marks Fuji’s attempt at producing a pro-grade lens and the size reflects it. While I’m not selling any of my primes any time soon, I also know there is a time and place for a solid, fast short zoom…….

The Fuji X-Pro 1..My “Soulmate” Camera | Christina Davis

Thank you for letting me share, once again, with the readers here on this site. I am a Fujifilm camera user (X-Photographer wannabe….I can dream, can’t I?). I sold off all of my DSLR equipment and the XPro1 was my main camera. Like many Fuji enthusiasts I, too, got one of the X-T1 cameras when they came out. While I was less than thrilled with the form, the performance was as described and I happily shot away with it all spring and summer this year. In fact, the XPro1 was gathering dust and as August rolled around, I was considering letting it go. As I thought it over I remembered one photo I took this summer with it. On an outing to The Huntington in Pasadena, California, I took the XT1 and the XPro1. I put on the 18mm lens on the XPro1 “just in case”……..

The Digital Contact Sheet | Derek Clark

I recently uploaded a video to YouTube featuring a selection of my street photography during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (Scotland). It’s kind of a video contact sheet in a way, as there are a few shots in there that are obviously short sequences. There is one picture in the video that seems to stand out for some people and as I remembered it was a lengthy sequence, I thought it would make a great Digital Contact Sheet. Feel free to check out the video mentioned above by clicking HERE. Click on the images below for a 1500px wide version. I came across this guy feeding pigeons at George Square during the 2014 Commonwealth Games. I shot a few frames leading up to what you see above using the 10-24mm lens that Fuji had sent me to try out, but it was a bit wide so I switched to the 56mm f1.2…..

Fujifilm updates X mount Lens Roadmap | Fujifilm Global

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) has released an updated roadmap for its X mount interchangeable lenses. Highly regarded for their outstanding image quality, resolution and well-built bodies, Fujifilm’s unique X mount lens range now has three new additions.

The new lenses that have been added to the Fujinon X Mount Lens Roadmap are:

  • NEW XF120mmF2.8 R Macro 1:1 Macro, telephoto lens
  • NEW XF35mmF2 R compact and lightweight standard focal length lens
  • NEW 1.4x Teleconverter for XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR, XF120mmF2.8 R Macro, XF100-400mm

The XF120mmF2.8 R Macro is the second macro lens to be added to the line-up. The XF35mmF2 R, with a standard focal length of 53mm*, is a much anticipated addition to the line-up, aimed at photographers who will appreciate the smaller size and lighter weight. The 1.4x Teleconverter is the first of its kind for the X mount and can be attached to other Fujinon X mount lenses** to extend the focal length by 1.4 times……..

Nissin i40 flash for Fuji | John Caz

Unbelievable how for so many years DSLR manufacturers were pushing bigger and bigger products when all the time, what we really needed was smaller and smaller. Even the flashes took this trip, look at the size increase from the old Nikon SB-28 all the way to the current SB-900. Since switching to Fuji I have been spoiled with smaller sizes and less weight. Now, thanks to the award winning Nissin i40, Fuji users get a small and light fully functional pro grade flash! Now that’s something to be joyful about! The flash itself is very small especially if you are coming from the world of DSLR’s. Its nearly 1/2 the height (85mm vs 146mm) and 1/2 the weight (200g vs 415g) when compared to my old Nikon SB-900. But thankfully size doesn’t equal output power since the Nissin is rated at 27m and my Nikon at 35m (ISO 100 & 35mm) – not as powerful but close enough. It comes with a very nice case…….

Side by Side Comparison: XF56mm F1.2 R Lens vs
XF56mm F1.2 R APD Lens | Leigh Diprose


 
Last week, I released the second edition of What XF Lens Should I Buy? The response from the community was very positive, however I did receive a few questions asking if I could show the difference between the XF56mm F1.2 R and the XF56mm F1.2 R APD as both lenses looked very similar on paper. I’m happy to announce your requests have been answered in the form of a side by side comparison. To test the lenses I setup two Fujifilm X-T1’s and attached a XF56mm F1.2 R lens onto one of the bodies and the highly anticipated XF56mm F1.2 R APD lens on the other. There were a few controls I put in place to make the comparison as close as possible. First, I navigated through the camera’s setup menu and located the ‘Reset’ menu, I then proceed to reset the ‘Shooting Menu’ and ‘Set-up’. Once this was complete I removed the Fujifilm UV filters from both lenses and cleaned the front element using a lens cloth. All images were captured in Aperture Priority using a 2 second self timer with electronic shutter turned off.  A 3 Legged Thing Tripod was used to ensure there was no camera movement during the exposure and all images bar the last two were photographed in a RAW format. Images were then exported as .jpegs using Lightroom 5.0 with no editing or alterations……

A walk around my hometown with the Fuji X-Pro1 | Tom Radford

I recently treated myself to a Fujifilm X-Pro1 to accompany my X100. Fuji had a pretty incredible deal on, where they gave you two lenses for free, when you purchased an X-Pro1, and on top of that gave you an extra £100 discount if you traded in certain DSLR’s. I had an old Nikon D5100 knocking around that I didn’t really use, so I went to my local fuji dealer and they offered me £150 trade value for the D5100.  Not bad, basically £250 for a body worth half that.. That made my mind up, so I dutifully handed over the remaining £400 or so and walked out with an X-Pro1 and the XF 18mm f/2 and the XF 27mm f/2.8. Having had the 18mm before on my old Fuji X-E2, I knew that was a keeper, but I was less convinced of the 27mm. I previously had the 35mm f/1.4 which was great and fully intend to sell the 27mm to purchase the 35mm, but before I did, I wanted to test it out, just to see. I went for a wander around my hometown with the X-Pro1 and the 27mm to see what it could do……..

1.2 Point of View: Fuji XF 56mm First Impression | Rivals

85mm is probably my favorite focal length, it’s the one I constantly keep adding to my collection. When I made the switch to Fuji I told myself that I wanted to replicate my previous setup, the 35mm and 85mm focal length (FF Eqv.) I’m sure you’ve all read this story before, as I’ve stated this multiple times. Initially I was just going to take advantage of the Fuji’s focus assist feature and use vintage glass, I owned the Helios 44-2 and the image quality it offered was suitable enough for my needs. This wasn’t until I went on a shoot with a friend of mine in the woods of Westland. I was using the 18-55 kit lens and I really like the face detection feature. It locked right on! I found myself switching between this lens and the Helios, the work flow with the kit was just way easier. At that moment I knew for serious sessions I needed this feature, but at faster speed……
