Fuji X-Pro1

Fujinon 27mm, UK Holiday Hero | Michael St. Jean

I am an obsessive idiot. After spending hours considering, and blogging about, the perfectly minimal (yet complete) camera and lens combination to take with me on a family holiday in the UK, I ended up doing something entirely different. In my previous post I wrote about taking to the UK two camera bodies, the Fujifilm X-T1 and X-E1, and two lenses, the Fujinons XF 35mm and 18-55mm, in anticipation of every photographic possibility. I was proud of this perfect travel kit. Before we left for the airport, I slid the XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake prime lens into my bag. „Why not?“ I thought, „It is small enough.“  This impulse decision proved to be a game changer…..

Sexiest camera ALIVE! | Ivan Joshua Loh

Its been almost 2 years since I gotten my first Fuji X series system. Its a birthday gift from my loving wife. Its the Xpro1 plus 2 lenses. XF35mm F1.4 and XF 14mm F2.8. Boy am I lucky! And boy am I lucky to have a wife! I have always think the Xpro1 looks gougeous. But never though of owning one as the price is not that cheap to start with. Until I had lunch with my good pal and fellow photographer; Joel Lim. He been using the Xpro1 for couple of months already and when I first held it; my first thought was its rather big and AF is not quick enough. Big because I was comparing it with a compact camera and AF is not quick because I was comparing with my DSLR( 1DX ). What a silly comparison. On the good side; I love the beautiful crafted dials. oozing with such sex appeal. The aperture rings, reminds me of a SLR from the old film days. An APS-C size Fuji X-trans sensor for capturing great details. The built quality that is second to none and after awhile I think its not that big after all. Especially when one compare with a DLSR…….

Do Fuji make a bad lens? | Dave Young

Whether it’s a kit zoom lens or a prime lens, the quality of each release appears to be incremental with each lens seemingly getting better with reference to IQ and sharpness. Having shot with both zooms and primes over a number of years, I’m very much a prime lens shooter. I prefer the simplicity a prime lens option gives, and the inherent increased quality you get from shooting prime. However, this line does appear to be getting more blurred with the release of Fuji’s 16-55mm & 50-140mm f/2.8 fixed aperture zooms. I’ve not had the pleasure of shooting with either as yet, but there’s a healthy school of thought to suggest simply these two lenses could remove the need for any other prime lens such is their outstanding quality. When he opportunity presents itself to try them I’ll certainly have something to say about them that’s for sure – so if you have them and want to lend them to me, don’t be shy! ………

Zoom or Prime lenses for portraits with Fuji X? | Damien Lovegrove

This is my real world comparison between the Fujifilm XF16-55mm zoom with the XF16mm f/1.4, XF23mm f/1.4, XF35mm f/1.4 and the XF56mm f/1.2 prime lenses. I often hear statements like prime lenses are better than zoom lenses. Is that so? Let’s find out… Size matters when it comes to lenses. The larger lenses are generally easier to operate especially if you are controlling the aperture, zoom and focus. The 16-55mm lens feels just the right size and the zoom function is super smooth too. Take away the need to zoom and the size of the fast prime lenses seems right too. If you really want compactness in your lens system you can opt for the pancake primes to cover the wide end. These are the 18mm, and 27mm. Pair these up with the 35mm and 60mm and you have a sub f/2.8 prime set up. These lenses offer stellar optics but have traded a fast maximum aperture for size and weight. The apertures are still larger than the zoom so these can be a real choice if size really does matter……

Zion – Landscape Photography | Mac Sokulski

This little day trip, happened over a year ago, and the photos where sitting on my hard drive collecting digital dust.  There are many others, that might see the light of day, or may not.  Procrastination and the fact that I wasn’t overly happy with the images played into the fact why I waited so long.  Personally I do not like changing my landscape photos, apart from small details and colors.  I never been a fan of replacing skies either.  First I find the task daunting, and second I like to leave some semblance of realism in my images.  If there are no clouds, then there are no clouds.  I have nothing against people who do that, nothing at all… I’m just lazy and frankly couldn’t be bothered. Being an opportunistic photographer, I don’t have the luxury of time, and spending a few days at a location, waiting for mother nature to smile.  I take what I’m given :)  Some say, that I’m wasting my time and pixels, but I disagree……..

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……..
