  • Great Build Quality
  • Super Sharp
  • Love the weather sealing

Kathmandu – 2 Days in Nepal | Ross Kennedy

A brief pit-stop in Kathmandu was a little bonus. A stepping-stone on my way home from Bhutan, the Nepalese capital is famously exotic with layer upon layer of history to explore…and a fascinating array of characters to photograph. After two weeks among the pine-clad, silent valleys of the Dragon Kingdom, where the land bears very few signs of human occupation, touching down in the lung-burning cacophony of Kathmandu’s traffic nightmare was one of those cultural somersaults that makes travel so compelling. Leisurely people-watching in the Indian sub-continent is a favourite occupation of mine but with only two days to explore the city, it was a case of hitting the highlights on the run with little time to sit back and enjoy the show. Kathmandu has been a backpackers’ favourite for more than 40 years – the final destination on the 60’s hippy trail to the jumping off point for Everest summit attempts. Centre of operations is Durbar Square, a jumble of medieval temples, multi-tiered pagodas and imposing colonial-era buildings. The square pulsates with life – on the day I visited, there was a vibrant ceremony taking place involving a parade of coloured flags, thumping music and lots of dancing…..

Fuji’s new extension tubes: To infinity and beyond | Bill Palmer

Back in November of last year you may remember reading my views on the macro options then available for Fuji X-users.  The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 had just been announced and I was quite excited at the prospect; indeed I wrote to Santa in the hope of waking up on Christmas morning with something tubular in my stocking.  Sadly either Santa didn’t get my note in time or I was on the Naughty List, because I had to wait until mid-January before I found an MCEX-16 in stock somewhere friendly enough to give me a small but perfectly formed discount. To briefly recap, my macro solution up to this point has been the Olympus OM 50mm f3.5 Macro lens plus some matching auto-extension tubes.  I covered the advantages and disadvantages of this setup in the previous article so I won’t repeat them here.  Let’s focus instead on the benefits of the MCEX solution………

Review: Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R | Tomasz Trzebiatowski

It’s time for my first review. Well, let me say it upfront: I am not a technology freak and – that’s for sure – I am not a pixel-peeper. For me a piece of equipment simply is (or is not) an extension of my photographic eye. It either helps me or does not help me with expressing and presenting my artistic vision. I simply like it or not. After starting to use the Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera a couple of weeks ago, I quickly had a look at the Fuji offering of lenses. After doing my research and listening to the opinions of those on the net, who I respect, I realised that there is quite an amazing line-up of top quality Fujinon lenses out there. What’s even better – there are some great prime lenses available. Trying to build up a strong, but compact set of primes, which would allow me to cover various photographic opportunities, I started my Fujinon collection with two of their primes: the XF 23mm f/1.4 and the XF 56mm f/1.2. The second one is the hero of today’s review……

South Pacific Sojourn – To Zoom or Not To Zoom | Patrick Leong

This is the first part of a two-part article about photography on a thirty day cruise, & related photo gear considerations as well as image capture experiences. Not quite two months ago, while checking email on my computer, I received an incredible offer from our travel agent to take a last minute cruise from San Diego to Hawaii & then to seven islands in French Polynesia.  Places with far away names like Bora Bora, Raiatea, Tahiti, Moorea, Rangiroa & Nuku Hiva conjured up images for me that are a photographer’s dream come true.  So my wife & I jumped at this opportunity.  This led to my next question of whether to take the most basic photo gear or a more capable but also more complex setup.  In my case, the former would be my Fuji X-E2 with its outstanding XF18-55mm zoom lens; the latter would be a selection of some or all of my prime lenses for this camera, with or without the zoom.  For me this is the XF-14mm, the XF-35mm, a Zeiss Planar 50mm, & finally a Leica Tele-Elmarit 90mm.  I provided a prior write up on this blog of my experiences in adapting these last two Leica M mount lenses to my Fuji X-E2 using the M adapter made by Fuji (see my two-part article on this blog titled “A Tale Of Two Lenses”)……..

Fuji X! The Light Weight Really Matters! | Mohamed Hakem

I’ve written before on how Fuji helped me unhinge new passion in the street photography but now I’m back with a new experience. After the switched from DSLR (Nikon D800) to Mirrorless (Fuji X-T1). I wrote before on how this switch helped me discover new genres in photography as street and people. But what I couldn’t imagine is that the mirrorless could outperform the DSLRs in landscape also! I am a landscape photographer and I’ve been a loyal Nikon user all my life. Coming from a monster in the shape of a camera (D800) made me see all other cameras as toys. Huge dynamic range and massive pixels. When I first got into the Fuji’s I was never expecting that it will one day be my main camera and replace the D800, and it did!….

Fujifilm Completes the F2.8 Lineup! 16-55mm F2.8 WR Lens Review |
Sven Schroeter

We got lucky, for the past seven days we have had the new 16-55mm lens at our disposal (kindly provided for test by the NZ Fujifilm team). With the addition of the 16-55mm lens, the F2.8 lens lineup is now complete and offers an equivalent focal range from 24mm through to 200mm when paired with the already available 50-140mm zoom. The new 16-55mm F2.8 (fixed aperture) weather sealed lens performs on par with the 50-140mm, a match made in heaven for those in search of versatility. Unfortunately we got the lens at pretty short notice and did not have the time to throw together a proper shoot to test each and every aspect of the the lens. So to make the most of the last few weeks of summer and accompanying stelar weather, we once again left the sky scrapers behind in search of tranquility with camera in hand…..

Rikenon 55mm f/1.2 review | Jonas Rask

Vintage lens review time! Some weeks ago I was browsing the classifieds as I regularly do, in search of good ol’ photography gold. My search never really broadens enough to include the word “Ricoh” but on this particular day I wanted to see what the going rate for the Ricoh GR was. What popped up was something quite different. A fast fifty? A really fast fifty? That I hadn’t heard about? That couldn’t be. Nonetheless it was certainly so. The seller seemed to charge a very reasonable price, but I had to check on eBay just to get an idea of the general price range of these lenses. Surprise! Not a single Rikenon 55mm f/1.2 was for sale on the entire eBay network! As I researched further I found out that the lens had some siblings under different brand names. The Yashinon 55mm, The Vivitar 55mm, and The Revuenon 55mm. The lens might have been manufactured by Tomioka in the 70’s 80’s and 90’s, or it might have ben produced by Cosina. I simply couldn’t find a straight answer to the manufacturing site! (if any of you readers know, please leave me a message)……

Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 at Zouk Singapore | Flemming Bo Jensen

Our pitch to Fuji Japan for this promotinal project was Singapore by Night. The pictures are going to be used for the web, brochures, exhibitions and books from Fuji. The main story would be a photo and video shoot at a Singapore nightclub. Following up on my first impressions, here are some more random notes about Ferry Corsten’s brother using the Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 lens and our experience creating the stills and the movie for this promotional project…..

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…….
