XF 18-55mm

Fuji OIS Oddity? | Black and White Project

I have exactly one Fuji X system lens with OIS, the 18-55mm. I like this compact zoom far more than I thought I would and use the crap out of it. I have a ton of hours of in-field use as well as more than a little bit of casual testing. There’s one thing I just cannot get a handle on though — performance and predictability of the OIS. I’ve had stabilized lenses before, I’ve used other people’s stabilized lenses before, I’ve even debugged other peoples issues related to their stabilized lenses. I’ve never really trusted the stabilization, trust it in the same way as I do other mechanical camera functions where I know exactly what’s going to happen. I’ve never really tried to trust it, nor have I spent a lot of time figuring it out……

Getting by with a Fuji X-T1 and two Fuji standard zoom lenses | Tom Grill

Sometimes I really want to travel light and uncomplicated, yet have enough of a focal range to cover most anything I would encounter. When I know my photography will be limited to the outdoors and I will have plenty of light, I often just pack the two standard Fuji zooms, the original 18-55mm and the 55-200mm. This gives me an effective, full frame focal range of 27mm-300mm — enough to cover most anything I would encounter. Both lenses are variable aperture (f/2.8-4 for the 18-55mm, and f/3.5-4.8 for the 55-200mm) so I won’t expect to be using them for any selective focus shots. Nonetheless, on a bright day with distant subjects I would probably be working around a constant f/5.6 anyway……

Xtend your Fuji system: All about that Hood | Rene Delbar

Let’s be honest: next to the ease-of-use of the Fujifilm X cameras, the advantages of their sensor, the performance of the XF glass and the resulting image quality, many X-shooters just love the retro design and handling of the bodies. Right from the start, with the original X100, we got a compact tool to completely enjoy taking pictures. If you’re old enough to have started photography with roll film or 35mm cassettes: just add “again” at the end. In order to augment the “old days” experience, we’ve been adding leather carrying and wrist straps, half cases, thumb grips, soft releases, old-fashioned cable releases… In the end though, you can’t but ask yourself: Why didn’t Fujifilm bring us sexier lens hoods? It started rather well actually. The X100’s fixed 23mm lens comes with a nice metal vented release. That comes handy when using the optical viewfinder, as less of the field of view is obstructed (as long as the openings are well aligned, hence the bayonet mount)……

Zoom Lenses Vs. Prime Lenses | Sebastian Boatca

Many people asked me one of the oldest questions in Modern Era Photography : is it better to shoot with primes or with zooms? Here are my thoughts about this topic and I remember I have asked this question myself many times. I had strong debates with friends and this topic invited me to search the web, looking for a clear answer. I needed the expertise of professionals, to see what are the pros and cons when working on site with different type of lenses. After I have slowly built my limited experience as a photographer (especially Landscape and Travel), I have felt on my own skin the pros and cons of using both prime and zoom lenses. Of course I have started with a kit lens, my first zoom being EF-S 17-85mm IS USM on a Canon 60D and my first prime was the famous EF 50mm F1.8 II plastic-fantastic lens. As a beginner, I loved the Canon EF zoom more, but the IQ from the nifty-fifty was way better……

Fuji X-E1 on Iceland (18-55mm, Walimex 8mm, LR6) |
Digital Photography Review

After years of almost only reading and benefiting from your great posts here, here comes a post with pictures from my trip to Iceland. We spent two weeks on Iceland, which was our first time there. The four of us rented a 4×4 and went around the island. The weather was changing every other ten minutes and the conditions for taking photos were against us most of the time (e.g. back light, very hard contrasts, rain, storm, snow.. :)). Also it was not yet very „green“ on the island, due to the quite long winter. And we couldn’t take us as much time as we wanted to spot out the best photo places, as it wasn’t a „photoshoot Journey“ only :) ……

Choosing between the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6,
and 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Tom Grill

In my latest hands-on review of the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8 I mentioned that with this lens Fuji expands its lens system with a redundancy that covers more that one solution to the same optical coverage. For the consumer, this means more choice within the various focal length categories allowing photographers to tailor their lens choices to the specific way they use their equipment. A serious landscape photographer has very different equipment needs than a still life or lifestyle photographer, just as a photographer using the equipment casually has a different criteria than a pro who relies on it to make a living. I have received a number of emails from readers asking which of the three lenses I would recommend based upon specific criteria. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic, and here it is. Here is one of the questions I received recently:

„I was thinking of buying the Fuji 18-135 as a convenient lens to used round the salt mashes, mudflats and coastal areas where I live. However the 16-55 seems to be having rave reviews, including your just published  review……..

16-55mm f/2.8 vs. 18-55mm f/2.8-4 vs. 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 | Fuji vs. Fuji

The pro standard zoom has long been a staple in almost every pro photographer’s bag. They are intended to be workhorses that can take anything we can throw at them. Low light, inclement weather, fast-moving subjects, you name it. At long last, Fuji’s standard f/2.8 zoom is available, which, along with the 50-140mm f/2.8 fills the two biggest gaps in their lens lineup. We could achieve these focal lengths before, but never with a constant aperture, and outside of 18mm, never at a maximum aperture of f/2.8. This piece will explore in-depth what you get for your extra money, aside from more size and weight…….

Street Photography – London | Mark Richards

Street photography can be a strange and intimidating experience. One technique you can try to make it easier and more focused is to set out with a specific subject in mind and then allow the shots to form around that.  In this case I chose shop fronts at night. This approach allows you to capture some good street photos without appearing obvious and looking for interesting shops to photograph will keep you alert.  Here are a few I took earlier this year (click on the photo to see full size).  All photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T1 and 18-55mm zoom lens…….

Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George

I’ve just got back from vacation trip to Paris, this time it was for pleasure, not work…though after seeing Peter Lindberg’s current exhibition at the Gagosian gallery I felt an overwhelming need to take some pictures. So I contacted my friend and model Gina Woitke who happens to live in Paris with a view to combining street photography and portraiture. All I had on this trip was my Fuji X e1 with its 18-55 mm kit lens so we decided to keep it very raw. Stripped back, no make up, no styling and no retouching. All Post production is done in Adobe Lightroom with a view to give it a filmic look……..

Hands On Review: Fujifilm X-E2 + Fujifilm 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS |
Antonio Jorge Nunes

I just got my hands on a Fuji X-E2 kit with the Fuji XF 18-55 F2.8-4 OIS lens. As a longtime DSLR user, I’ve been skeptical about the mirrorless systems’ capabilities. I’ve tried a fair number of top compact cameras, but the results were always lacking. Last month, I got to play with a Fuji X-E1 for some time, and the results were really surprising in the best possible way. General use, image quality, and high ISO performance were on par with any APS-C DSLR I’ve tried. The X-E2 is even better. It has a better EVF, it’s faster, and it can focus better in low light conditions with its phase detection focusing system. It also boasts a second generation sensor and some nice improvements like dedicated AE-L / AF-L buttons…..
