Fujifilm X-T1 + 23mm f/1.4 Lens Review | Kris Connor

This past September was my eighth season traveling up to New York City from Washington DC to cover Fashion Week. I truly enjoy photographing Fashion Week. Even though it’s chaotic, I love the thrill and constant stimulation. In regards to equipment I am your typical photojournalist, photographing with two DSLR bodies, one-two flashes and two zoom lenses. Over the last few years, as I have moved more into reportage work, I’ve become tired of carrying all that gear around. I have been looking to lighten my normal load. In recent years, I have gained interest in investing in the mirrorless systems that are coming on the market due to their light weight, size and quietness. Their image quality is starting to match to the SLR systems in the recent years. When Adorama gave me the opportunity to test out the Fuji X-T1 with a 23mm F1.4 lens during this past fashion week, I jumped on the opportunity…..

Can you Really Use Manual Lenses on the X Pro 1? |
Matt Widgery

 
One of the most interesting possibilities with mirrorless camerams is their ability to use almost any classic vintage manual lenses from 135 film cameras, thanks to the small flange distance between the back of the lens and the sensor. With a range of cheap (and some not so cheap) adapters readily available and plenty of old glass for sale in your local camera shop and online, why not experiment and see what you get?….

THE REAL DIFFERENCE: XF56 vs XF56 APD vs FF |
NIKO VILLEGAS & JAN GONZALES

I’ve gotten my fair share of questions regarding the XF56mm F1.2 R APD, most of which are asking what it brings to the table that the original XF56 doesn’t already. The question is quite understandable as there hasn’t really been any sample images that depict the difference of the lenses effectively. Even the marketing material that Fujifilm brought with them to show the differences wasn’t that much convincing from all the photos I’ve seen posted here on the internet of things. Just like the XF50-140, we also had the opportunity to test pre-production samples of the lenses last October. These are the actual lenses displayed in Photokina (where they were first displayed) a day before they arrived here in the Philippines and brought here by non other than Hiroshi Kawahara! The same man who pioneered the X-Series with the original X100. Unfortunately since 56mm isn’t exactly the focal length I work with and seeing this lens is more for portraits than landscape photography, it was all but fitting that two of my colleagues; also two of the best fashion photographers in the country, should be the ones to take on the task – fellow X-Photographers Niko Villegas and Jan Gonzales……..

Comparing the XF50-140mm F2.8 to the XF56mm F1.2 |
RANDALL CIPRIANO

I’ve been lucky enough to have tried a few pre-production samples of the XF50-140mm back in October and saw first hand how sharp it was comparing it with both XF56mm F1.2 R original and APD versions as well as with another brand’s top gun of the same class. But due to the pre-production status of the lens, as always, we had to reserve our final impressions until the production models come out which is what I have with me right now. We were supposed to field test the lens this coming week at the Fujifilm Trek to Mt. Pulag. Unfortunately, due to the apparent threat of Typhoon Hagupit, we had to postpone the trip to next month. So I settled with taking some mixed scenes to compare the XF50-140 and XF56. I tried to match the focus area and the focal length of the XF50-140 to 56mm but the camera doesn’t report the actual focal length of zooms as accurately as I would have liked. Focal length and focus area variance aside, it’s interesting to see how similar in sharpness both lenses are even at F2.8 which is wide open for the XF50-140 and stopped down for the XF56mm which should have given it the advantage. The XF56 is also a prime lens which in most cases have been attributed to have better image quality than zooms. Yes, a totally unscientific test, but you get the point…….

7 Points About the XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR | Olaf Sztaba

After shooting extensively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8, we would like to share a few points about this lens with you:

  1. Micro-Contrast: Superb and on a par with our beloved XF 56mm F1.2
  2. Optics: Bitingly sharp, to our eye, a notch better than Canon or Nikon equivalents
  3. Image Stabilization (OIS): 5-stops – YES, it works, we love it and use it, all the time
  4. Bokeh (out of focus area): Nice for the size of the sensor but we strongly prefer XF 56mm F1.2 in this regard
  5. Construction: All metal, looks and feels great
  6. Size: BIG and heavy – it is NOT a travel lens
  7. Price: Fair for what you are getting

That’s all for now. Here is our mini-session with Nicole shot exclusively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 attached to the Fuji XT-1…..

The New Standard: 56mm | Steven S. Miric

I am a wide angle guy. Period. My favorite FOV is more wide than narrow. When I’m picking up a camera, wider lens is always priority. But… When I decide to go longer it is usually normal lens or standard portrait lens. So what is the exact focal length „number“, someone might ask? It all get confusing when you start hopping from full frame to APS-c and back. But, I won’t elaborate or explain about it here. This is just another hymn to great lens that Fujifilm made: 56mm/1.2. My Fuji X kit started recently, see my initial story here. And all of the lenses I got were primes, with the longest lens as 35mm. Than, I felt a need for a portrait focal length and being budget conscious decided to go for Kijiji based great deal on 60mm. I got that one. Like NIB. Great optical quality. Great files. Great for MACRO. I used this lens few times, but I was left wanting more.Too slow focusing. Too much hunting when focusing. And the biggest „issue“ was that I was missing that stop and a change from 2.4 to 1.4 when I was pairing it up with my other Fuji primes (35 and 23) that I use for shoots like this one displayed bellow. Why having fast (and good) lenses and not shoot wide open when you need/want? Shooting with two xpro1 bodies on a assignment and going back and forth between two, if one body is a stop „slower“ than the other, something had to be done……

HO! HO! HO! with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR |
Olaf Sztaba

When a package from Fujifilm Canada with the XF 50-140 OIS lens arrived on my doorstep, I got unusually excited. I couldn’t wait to start shooting. How strange, I thought. After all, I have never been a fan of zoom lenses; I mostly shoot with primes and the line of XF prime glasses fills my camera bag leaving no space for zooms. But somehow, this new, large, heavy lens had captured my attention since the first day it was announced. There are three main reasons: First, we have said many times on this blog that the right way for any company to build a photographic system from the ground up is to start with quality lenses. Amateur photographers usually get excited about cameras while lenses tickle the professionals (in the end, great glass will attract pros and ultimately sell cameras). In fact, the prime reason we started shooting Fuji X-series exclusively was the superb quality of the XF lenses. The XF 14mm F2.8, XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 56mm F1.2 are in our bag and they are some of the best lenses we have ever used. Therefore, XF 50-140 F2.8 OIS WR – the first really professional zoom from Fuji immediately had us on alert……

Rakhee & Jack | Hindu Wedding Photographer | Vincent Opoku

My favourite moment? Everything! I mean how do you pick a favourite from moments such as Rakhee and Jack’s colourful faces by the end of the Blessing Ceremony, the immense dancing with sticks to bring the Mendhi ceremony to a close, or Jack riding along a busy London street on a horse – a horse which happened to be the secret wedding gift that Rakhee got for him. What about the fight for the rings, or watching planes fly over the conservatory at Syon house and did I mention that I even got some Mehndi done on my arm? I love you guys man, thank you for such an amazing cultural experience, I could so do it all over again! Rakhee and Jack, I am glad to have met you and glad to have you as friends now. Keep Smiling.  I Contemplated on blogging each day separately but I think one BIG post will do a better job at telling the whole story. Happy viewing……

Fuji 50-140mm f2.8 :: It Thinks It’s A Prime | Derek Clark

All of these portraits of my kids are straight out of the camera. I have not adjusted contrast or sharpness. This is what you get from an X-T1 and the 50-140mm f2.8. I will do a follow up post to show how great the shallow depth of field looks, but I wanted to get a review out as quick as possible and it’s been a dark grey weekend. This won’t be a technical review. You can find plenty of specs on the web if you need them. Specs are fine, but if they’re not engineered properly, they don’t mean a thing! It seems nobody told this lens that it’s not supposed to be as sharp as a prime. Come to think of it, nobody told Fuji that you can’t make a zoom that performs like a prime lens either. But I’m glad, because they have pulled it off. Click on any of the portrait shots to see a full size version on Flickr. Ok, so the shot above is sharp, very sharp. But look below and you will see that this is just a small crop of the original photo. Not only that, but as I said above, this is SOOC. These portraits of my kids were shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the new 50-140mm f2.8. With a full frame equivalent of 75-210mm, this is Fuji’s answer to the classic professional workhorse 70-200mm f2.8. Now I own a 70-200mm Nikon and it’s a fantastic lens (as is the Canon version). It’s the reason I’ve held on to my Nikon D800, because I need that 200mm reach for my jazz photography. Fuji’s other long zooms are too slow for what I need and my longest prime is the awesome 56mm f1.2. I’m looking forward to my next jazz shoot with an all Fuji setup!………

Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 R: A stunning, ultra-fast portrait lens
for X-Series | MacFilos

Every so often a lens comes along that tickles the fancy. My particular fancy is normally stirred by one or other of the long list of venerable Leica optics. They are an expensive indulgence, but one that must be savoured at least once in a lifetime. That said, the remarkable XF 56mm from Fujinon has wormed its way into my affections of late. At around £800, this lens with its bright f/1.2 aperture is no Poundland bargain, except perhaps in relation to its nearest Leica competitor, the 50mm Summilux. That object of desire costs nearly four times as much. The Fujinon, on the other hand, is also very good, very desirable and a relative bargain to boot. The lens reviewed here is the original 56mm introduced earlier this year. Fuji has now launched an apodised version, the APD, which will arrive shortly and will be around 25% more expensive than this review model. The APD promises to produce even more satisfactory bokeh but, as you will see, the existing model is already a pretty dab hand at this particular task……
