Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens Review | ePhoto Zine

A combination of metal and high grade plastics used for the construction of this lens, has resulted in robust build, whilst ensuring that this lens isn’t overly heavy. At 655g it isn’t too weighty and it balances well with the Fujifilm X-T1 used for testing, as a result. Focusing is performed internally. As a result, the 77mm filter thread does not rotate, making it perfect for use with polarising and graduated filters. A petal-shaped hood attaches to the bayonet around the front of the lens and is reasonably secure, although during testing it became fairly easy to dislodge when removing the lens from a bag, resulting in the hood being out of alignment. The manual focusing ring is well damped and smooth in operation. As a result, applying fine focus adjustments is a pleasure…..

Fujinon XF 10-24 f4 review | Wim Arys

Conclusion

In lens design, larger and heavier lenses generally stand for better optical performance. For a small and lightweight mirrorless system like the Fuji X, it seems some compromises will always have to be made (if you want to keep it portable at least). It must be a difficult balancing act for any manufacturer to make. Luckily Fuji generally gets this balancing act right. A f/4 wide angle zoom is not the fastest ever, but if this results in a good performing lightweight lens like this, this is a trade-off that does not bother me at all. I would have preferred that the Fujinon XF 10-24mm performed more uniformity at larger apertures throughout the range and was sharper at the edges. But the LMO or a good RAW developer like Iridient corrects these issues to a large degree. Generally speaking, you’ll get the best edge-to-edge sharpness out of this lens at around f/5.6-f/8 up to f/11. For other uses like portraiture where you’d only need the center really sharp, there is no problem with shooting at f/4. Lens distortion is very much under control too, even at 10mm…..

Street Photography with the X series | Gary Perlmutter

This article is a guide to help you choose the best Fuji X series model for street photography. Let’s start at the beginning with a bit of background. I am a professional wedding photographer whose work brings in the money that feeds my family, but it’s my passion for street photography that feeds my soul. (However I do now supplement my income by teaching street photography workshops). I have been practicing street photography since before I even realized that the pictures I were taking had a name! In that time, I have always sought to find the perfect street camera, and subsequently owned and tried every conceivable brand that includes Canon, Nikon through to the infamous Leica.To give you some further detail, these cameras included the Nikon V1 (truly underrated camera, only the small 1” sensor let it down), Leica M6 and M8 (great street cameras if like zone focusing, but for me rangefinder focusing was too slow). Leica X2 (great quality, but its AF speed was too slow and the external EVF should have been built in!). Before that, I used one of the original Canon G series compacts: this was ok but its optical viewfinder was no better than looking through a keyhole and on the latest version they have removed it altogether!

Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R Review | Alessio Michelini

I wanted to buy this lens since I got my Fujifilm X-E1 over an year ago, but at that time I decided, despite my legendary hate against zoom lenses, to buy it with the Fujinon 18-55 f/2.8-4, just because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be stuck with just one focal length at the begin. And to be honest I didn’t dislike that lens that much, it was overall very sharp, very well build and light at the same time, a good lens. But, I just can’t stand zoom lenses, and after 6 months I sold it to buy the Samyang 12mm, and I didn’t regret it. Actually, the only regret I had was not to buy the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 R straight away since the very begin. But if you buy out of the kit, it’s not supercheap, especially if you don’t plan to spend bags of money as I already invested a lot of money on the Canon system, as for me the Fuji X-E1 was just a small camera to carry around. So, spend more than 500 euro for that lens, it was a bit too much for me……..

Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 LM R WR- a working dog worth the money | Tony Bridge

I have been waiting for this lens for some time. When Fujifilm entered the market with the X-Pro 1 and its 3 old-school prime lenses, a 28, 50 and 90mm full-frame equivalent, they were taking aim squarely at all of us who were Leicaphiles without the deep pockets to support that particular addiction. And while they were supremely capable, for this particular photographer, they weren’t quite there. 28mm has always seemed to me to be a focal length with an identity crisis, not sure whether it wanted to be a wide-angle or a standard lens, too long to really give the perspective expansion of a 24mm and too short for the subtle compression of a 50mm. 90mm makes for a moderate telephoto (very moderate) but lacks the pulling power needed when you want to haul in something far away or get obvious perspective compression. Or both………

A Year with the Fuji X-Pro1 – Review | Richard Nixon

The X-Pro1 had instant appeal; I had harboured a mild and ongoing interest in photography ever since I owned my first capable camera – the iPhone 4s – but had never been drawn in by the idea of the DSLR touting lifestyle. The X-Pro1 was the answer I hadn’t even realised I was waiting for – the image quality, performance “sex appeal” it offered was all there and everything I suddenly needed. However, a quick price check revealed that my student budget wasn’t letting this happen anytime soon. The article was bookmarked and forgotten. Cue 2014 – a couple of graduations and a few months of employment later – and I have an income, firmware updates have fixed the cameras biggest issues and Fuji are offering the X-Pro1 and their 18mm F2 at a discounted rate along with the offer to claim another lens of your choice free. It all came flooding back; I was sold. I chose the 35mm F1.4. Obviously. One year later and it’s apparent that was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It was my starting point as a photographer and my ability has come on leaps and bounds with it as my companion…….

Das Nocturnus f0,95 35mm besticht durch außergewöhnliche Lichtstärke und ermöglicht Fotografen mit spiegellosen Kameras einen besonders großen kreativen Spielraum beim bewussten Einsatz von Schärfe und Unschärfe.

Die optische Konstruktion ermöglicht auch bei f0,95 eine hervorragende Schärfeleistung im Fokusbereich und sorgt für maximale Reduzierung chromatischer Aberration. Zehn Blendenlamellen kreieren ein harmonisches Bokeh…..

Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Review | PhotographyBLOG

The Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR is a new professional weather-resistant standard zoom lens for Fujifilm’s X-series interchangeable lens cameras. The Fujifilm 16-55mm F2.8 lens boasts an angle-of-view range similar to that of a 24-84mm lens in a 35mm system and features a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 throughout the range. Other highlights include a close-focus point of 30cm, an iris diaphragm with nine rounded blades, Fujifilm’s unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) and Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technologies, a linear motor-driven focusing system that allows the camera to lock focus on the subject in 0.06 second, and silent operation for video recording…..

Fuji XT1 Wedding Photography | Mariano Sfiligoy

Hi! My name is Mariano Sfiligoy. I’m a father, a husband and a wedding photographer since 2011. I grew up surrounded by film cameras and black and white photos, each telling stories of my family. At home the bath was a darkroom. Since the moment I started photographing, I was always looking for the best cameras and lenses but then, I realised that smaller gear was an important contribution to my photos. Today I travel light which allows me to get close to the action and document weddings as I see them in my mind. For that reason I decided in late 2014 switch from Nikon Df to Fujifilm X-T1…..

Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R review | Wim Arys

Real-life performance and use

The Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R complements the Fujifilm X-T1 perfectly both in finish and size. The only issue might be that the XF56mm is not weather proofed, limiting the use to dry conditions. I mainly use a lens like this for portraiture and shallow depth-of-field effects. It is truly stunning at large apertures with a beautiful blur in the out-of-focus parts. Focussing is always going to be challenging with a f/1.2 large aperture lens because of the very shallow depth-of-field, but it focus targets very accurately on the X-T1. It would be even more useful if it incorporated image stabilization, but I guess we’ll have to wait for a newer version or sensor stabilization in a future Fujifilm camera model for that. In daylight shooting, I did find the large degree of color fringing quite bothersome. I guess the camera corrects this when shooting Jpeg’s, but if you’re a RAW shooter take note. A fast lens like this also lends itself well to low-light photography. You’ll be able to keep ISO down while still getting a decently exposed image. I always use center spot autofocus on the X-T1, and this works well with the 56mm too…….
