Meine Zweite Liebe – Fuji | Peter Ziegler

Meine erste Liebe zur Fotografie begann 1973 mit dem Kauf einer Canon F1. Seinerzeit schrieb ein gewisser Nörgelmann – alias Alexander Borell – einen Praxistest im Foto Magazin über eben diese Kamera von Canon. Zur Auswahl standen damals nur die Nikon F oder die Canon F1. In einem Mannheimer Fotogeschäft wollte man mir partout die Nikon schmackhaft machen. Ich ließ mich nicht beirren und verließ – stolz wie Oskar – den Laden mit einer nagelneuen F1 und einem Normalobjektiv von 50mm mit Lichtstärke 1,4. Zu dieser Zeit war das 50mm Objektiv die Standartbrennweite. Kein Mensch dachte damals an ein Kit-Zoom. Das Umfeld beneidete mich um diese Kamera, hauptsächlich bei der Bundeswehr. Dort war ich während meines Wehrdienstes der einzige gelernte Werkzeugmacher unter lauter Fotografen, Retuscheuren und Reprofotografen…….

6 Spectacular Portrait Lenses for The Fujifilm X-Series | Anthony Thurston

Portrait Photographers all over are moving to the Fuji X series for a variety of reasons including, size/form factor, weight, and -ofcourse- Fuji’s outstanding colors and jpeg processing. So if you have or are considering a Fujifilm kit for some portrait photography what are some of the good lenses for the system? In this roundup we have 6 incredible lenses for portrait photography on the Fuji X system, plus an added bonus recommendation. So lets jump right into it, shall we? A great low-profile semi compact option for Fuji shooters, the XF 35mm F/2 WR is fast focusing, weather resistant, and offers image quality equal to – and some might say better – its F/1.4 brother in most respects. However, if you are a fan of manual or zone focusing, we would probably suggest grabbing another options instead. Possibly the fastest focusing Fuji lens right now, so if you rely on AF, this is definitely a lens to consider……

Portrait lens battle! – Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 vs Samyang 50mm f/1.2 | MirrorLessons

If you are looking for a portrait lens for the Fujifilm X series, the first choice that comes to mind (and that most photographers would recommend) is the XF 56mm f/1.2. Released two years ago, it was the first lens designed specifically for portraits by Fujifilm. I’ve never hidden my love for this glass; it is one of my favourite Fujinon lens. Before that the only viable option was the XF 60mm f/2.4 semi-macro lens released with the X-Pro1 in 2012. Today the choices for portrait photography have increased with the addition of the 56mm f/1.2 APD version and the XF 90mm f/2. However up until last year the system was lacking an alternative, less expensive solution. This is where Samyang comes in with its 50mm f/1.2 which was released in 2015…….

A practical and hands-on review of the Fujifilm X-T1 and 56 f1.2 | Malachi Ajose

Welcome to my review of  the Fujfilm X-T1 and Fujinon XF 56, ’the big guns’ combination. As stated in my last review, I wanted my review to be organic, realistic and useful for photographers.  I am not going to give you a large list of the technical specifications but rather my review on using the X-T1 as a camera and how it performs. It’s important to note that I wrote this review (X-T1 section) before the december firmware release and I added the 56 mm section after the release. One of the thing’s that I love about the Fujifilm community, they listen to there buyers, if something isn’t great with the current firmware they endeavour to fix it within the next update. As a photographer, I feel this is important, it makes you feel like your opinion is valued and not resolved in the next camera release, with a significantly higher price tag…….

Moonrise Above the Blue Mosque | Nasim Mansurov #XPro2 #xf56

Istanbul is one of the most magical cities of the world. Divided between Europe and Asia, Istanbul straddles the Bosphorus strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. With its rich history and diversity, it is without a doubt one of the most popular cities of the world to visit. Although I had previously been to Turkey once in my teenage years (which included a sightseeing tour of Istanbul), coming here feels like home. Perhaps because I used to be fluent in Turkish and hearing the language reminds me of my childhood, or perhaps it has to do with my memories of attending a Turkish high school in Uzbekistan. Whatever the case, I love the beautiful country of Turkey and I absolutely adore the magnificent Istanbul…….

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R | Jim Fisher

Photographers who shoot with the Fujifilm mirrorless camera system have a distinct choice to make when shopping for a short telephoto prime lens. The company sells two versions of its 56mm prime—this Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R ($999.95) and the Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R APD. It’s not just the cost of printing APD on the lens that carries a $500 premium—the apodization filter included in the pricier lens promises to smooth the defocused parts of an image for a more pleasing bokeh. Whether or not that’s worth it to you is something you have to decide for yourself—either lens is able to capture sharp photos with a staggeringly shallow depth of field with ease. But neither quite matches our Editors‘ Choice short telephoto lens for the Fuji system, the longer Fujinon XF 90mm F2 R LM WR……..

Nicolas Vandeberg: Photo session with Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 | Nicolas Vendeberg

Here is a preview of the photo shoot I did with Romane. This series was made at an abandoned site, in Verviers area! For this session, I tried to have a more natural approach. The photos were shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the Fujinon 56mm 1.2, made without flash or reflector. The photos were then treated with Lightroom and Photoshop……

Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 and XF16-55mm f2.8 Bokeh Comparison |
Dean Johnston

Following along from yesterday’s post, here are four photographs, in two sets of two. Each set has one photo with the 56mm f1.2 and one with the XF 15-55mm f2.8, in that order. All are wide open, and the XF16-55mm is at 55mm. Not overly rigorous in execution, but it does give you an idea of what to expect with a headshot and a background around 90 – 100 cm away. It’s the kind of thing I would be interested in, so hopefully some will find it useful……..

Finding Seoul with the Fuji XT1 & 56mm 1.2 | Blupace

Having owned the Fuji XT1 and 56mm 1.2 (none APD), for around 6 months, we thought it was about time to share our experience. A recent five day visit to Seoul, provided the perfect opportunity to compose a Blupace review. First some technical bits: Pictures are edited minimally in LR. Crop, contrast, Shadows, etc.. Captured as jpegs, with Monochrome+R filter, +2 shadows, +1 Highlights. We shoot full manual, back-focusing, with focus-ring and focus peaking. (Hovering over individual images, will provide camera setting). This will not be a technical review as there are many great sites providing this information. What we hope to provide, is more of an emotional review while exploring the city, navigating its metro, and meeting the people who live there…….

Why I love: the Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 lens | Fujifilm Blog

Most wedding photographers want to be able to separate their subjects from the background at some point during the day and the amazingly fast 1.2 aperture of the 56mm (85mm full frame equivalent) allows me to do that. Even when I’m shooting fast moving subjects, such as a confetti throw, I will sometimes want to offer a luscious depth of field and there is no other lens that offers that f1.2 aperture that allows me to do that right now. This lens, along with the 23mm lenses are my goto lenses for every single wedding I shoot. – Kevin Mullins ….
