Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 zoom – a Hands-on review | Tom Grill

Ask most pros and you will probably find they have a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens as one of the two main staples in their DSLR lens kit. This focal length, along with a 24-70mm f/2.8, covers the majority of situations we are likely to encounter. Such lenses by Nikon and Canon are legendary for their quality optics and semi-fast, fixed aperture. A pro who shoots weddings or lifestyle probably relies on an f/2.8 long zoom. Photographing animals, sports, or even travel, same thing. Since its inception in the 1980’s, an 80-200mm (now 70-200mm) zoom lens has been a required staple on any equipment list.  Fuji’s addition of these f/2.8 zooms to the Fuji XF lens lineup demonstrates its intent to raise the X-series cameras to true pro-grade use……..

A family roadtrip around Australia with the Fuji X system |
Tom Leuntjens

I’m currently on a 3 month roadtrip with my family in Australia. We are travelling in a campervan with our two boys: a 3,5 year old and a 1 year old. It’s been a wonderful journey so far. Choosing my gear for this trip was rather easy. As a photographer I wanted to be able to make great pictures, but as a dad, it had to be compact & light. And to be honest, there wasn’t much room left in our bags. My camera bag (Retrospective 30) actually doubled as a diaper bag on the plane. What did I bring on this trip? A Fuji XT1 with the XF18 (27mm) and the XF35 (50mm) lenses and a Fuji X100S (35mm). A couple of SD cards, 4 batteries each and that’s it! I haven’t regretted this decision for a second. Most of time I tend to take just one camera and lens with me when we go walking. It makes me work with whatever I have with me at the time. Because of the built in ND filter the X100S has seen the most action so far. The XF35/XT1 combo is still my favourite (but eagerly awaiting the firmware update). The camera’s have been through a lot, they live on the dashboard or get tossed in a backpack. Most of the time I just have one dangling of my shoulder, on the beach, on a boat, through the rainforest. I’m not here as a photographer, I’m not hunting for the perfect picture, I don’t sit around and wait for perfect light. I just try to take some decent honest snaps of our time here, as a dad…….

Nissin i40 For Fuji | The Photography Hobbyist

This is a look at the Nissin i40 flash for Fujifilm cameras.  I’ll be using this flash on my Fuji X-T1, but it is compatible with certain other Fujifilm cameras.  I’m very impressed with the build quality and features (having used Nikon flashes in the past).  I’m also happy to see it comes with a built-in diffuser , bounce card, pouch and flash stand. The test photos of the Christmas decoration were shot at ISO 400 with the flash in TTL mode.  No flash exposure compensation and no camera exposure comp.  Personally, I’ve always liked bounced flash the best, when it’s possible to bounce for lighting versus direct flash or a diffuser.  Although, in this test, the straight up bounce with the bounce card pulled out did very well.  There are notes for each photo indicating what type of flash was used (direct, bounce, etc)……

The Zeiss Touit 50mm Macro Full Review | MirrorLessons

Conclusion

The Zeiss Touit 50mm 2.8 Macro is a very nice lens capable of delivering excellent quality. It is very sharp, has good close-up capabilities and good AF performance. I could not find a flaw during the time I tested it. The rubber covering both the aperture and focus rings are nice to use, and the lens is very light and therefore easy to carry. Since it offers a 1:1 scale ratio for macro work, it is perhaps the most interesting lens out of the trio for the Fuji X system so far…….

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……
