Sony a6300 vs Fuji X-Pro2 – The two best mirrorless APS-C cameras | Mirrorlessons

There are many differences between the Sony a6300 and the Fujifilm X-Pro2 but two of the most important characteristics actually perform in a more similar manner than you’d think. Both cameras sport new APS-C sensors that can be considered a reference at the time of writing this article, and they also have the two best autofocus systems I’ve had the chance to use. So even though price, build quality, additional features and target user are all different, there is actually a valid reason to compare these two cameras! The X-Pro2 inaugurates a new generation of X series cameras for Fujifilm. It is highly probable that we will see other products in the future with the same 24MP sensor, hopefully at a lower price, which means that the competition for the a6300 will increase. On the other hand, the Sony camera is likely to become the newest “best bang for the buck” which is exactly what happened to the a6000 before it. In this article, I’ll be sharing an in-depth comparison of the image quality and autofocus performance…….

Fujifilm X70 vs. Ricoh GR | Ned Bunnell

I was intrigued when Fujifilm announced the X70 in January. The press release touted it as a premium fixed-lens compact camera. Design wise, clearly it’s the baby brother to the X100T. However, its specs indicate the X70’s primary mission is to compete with the Ricoh GR II. Having shot almost exclusively with the GR and GR II for the past three years, as well as shooting film several times a year with the GR-1v, you could say I’m a devotee of Ricoh’s compact camera design philosophy. Knowing this, Tony Rose of Popflash Photo loaned me one of his first X70’s and asked me to see how the X70 compared with the GR. After shooting with the X70 for two months, I have a few thoughts about the X70 as a GR competitor and why Fujifilm entered this niche market…….

Fujifilm X70 vs. X100T – The Premium Compacts | MirrorLessons

In an earlier comparison between the Fujifilm X70 and the Ricoh GR II, I suggested that the X70 and X100T are, in many ways, cut from the same cloth. In addition to both being premium fixed-lens compacts from Fujifilm, they also incorporate the same 16MP APS-C X-Trans II CMOS sensor and feature a very similar design. You may be wondering: are there enough differences to merit a comparison? Even though the image quality is the basically identical, I would say that there are. The most salient differences are the field of view and optical quality of their respective fixed lenses, followed by the small gap between their autofocus systems. The remaining differences mostly regard the body, such as the size and weight, viewfinder (or lack thereof) and LCD screen……

X-Pro2 vs Medium Format. An unfair face-off | Ivan Joshua Loh

Three years ago I sold my DLSR system and went into mirrorless,as mention I wasn’t 100% confident of this move. I still own a Digital Medium Format(DMF) for commercial client that requires larger output. That was my safety net too. I wasn’t sure if X-trans 16MP APS-C good enough. Yesterday I decided to take out my DMF out for a spin and relive the medium format dream. Its may not be the latest model but its still a great tool. Its a Phase One 645DF with a Leaf Aptus 6 ll 28 MP digital back. As I place it on my work table; X-Pro2 was just by it side. I was just wondering how much different is the IQ between this 2 awesome cameras? X-Pro2 mounted with a XF35mm F1.4 and Phase One with a 80mm F2.8 Schneider-Kreuznach lens. Which is about 50mm in 135mm format. As usual I commission my not so trusty model, Summer; A.K.A. mycheeky 5 years old daughter. I brought the DMF and XPro-2 for a  little unfair face-off at the playground………

Fujifilm X-T1 vs X-Pro2: Which Camera Should You Buy? | Laya Gerlock

I personally own the Fujifilm X-T10, but I became curious recently: is the new X-Pro2 worth the upgrade, or is the X-T1 enough of an upgrade from the X-T10? I already did some tests shots on the X-Pro2 for a recent post, and it performed extremely well. But I was still curious on how the two higher-tier cameras compare. So, I borrowed the X-T1 from a friend and did some comparison tests with the X-Pro2, which was lent to me by Fujifilm. I wanted to make the tests as fair as possible so I shot almost all of them inside my studio, as the lighting and conditions don’t change. All shots were taken using same lens, the Fuji 18-55mm f/2.8-4…..

X-E2 vs. X-E2S: Ending the Confusion | Rico Pfirstinger

By upgrading your Fujifilm X-E2 with firmware 4, you are giving up the camera that you knew: Your X-E2 will turn into an X-T10—only with a rangefinder design. However, on the inside, both the X-E2v4 and the new X-E2S offer (almost) the same features, the same menu options and the same graphical user interface as the X-T10. Okay, so your X-E2 is now a rangefinder-style version of the X-T10. Great! But what exactly are the differences between an X-E2 running firmware 4 and the new X-E2S? There seems to be some confusion, so let’s straighten it out. On the outside, the differences are minimal. The X-E2S offers an “improved” hand grip, but to be honest, I can’t feel much of a difference. However, pressing the four selector buttons on the back of the X-E2S does feel better, so this may be another small improvement over the classic X-E2……..

X-Pro2 takes on 5D3? | Ivan Joshua Loh

Its been almost 2 years since I bid farewell to DSLR and walk into the mirrorless world. Its wasn’t an easy decision but on the hind side; its the right decision. Leaving my 1DX isn’t easy; which is a very capable camera and still hard to beat even in today’s standard. Eventually it was the size; retrolious design and IQ of X-Pro1 that won me over. Of course I had to live with the down side of X-Pro1 too. AF was its weakest link. With the recent launch of X-Pro2, I would say its now easier for many to make this same decision. Many fellow photographers have been contacting me about new X-Pro2. As I ask why are they thinking of switching? Many says its because of the weight of DSLR and their lenses. X-Pro2 with a 24MP sensor now look like a good and logical alternative. There was also a wedding photographer that I spoke to, thinking of getting two X-Pro2 for his professional work…….

Fuji XF35mm F2 Review – Up Close & Personal | Kevin Mullin

As ever, this isn’t really a full Fuji XF35mm F2 Review and it is going to be in the form of my general use of it “in battle”. This isn’t a pixel peeping exercise, though I’m including some RAF files for you, and I’m not going to be reviewing the lens in the traditional fashion. Rather, I’m just going to talk about it, how I’ve been using it, how I’ve found it and what, if any, the pitfalls may be of the latest offering in the ever increasing lens line-up for the X-Mount from Fujifilm. Actually, as I’ve only recently purchased this lens from WEX I have only been able to take it to one wedding. Which was yesterday. Where it rained. A lot. In November. In England. Needless to say, I wasn’t spending too much time with the F2 lens, instead preferring my faster 23mm F1.4 and even the 35mm F1.4. However, I did challenge the lens on occasions and I have to say this, right now; This lens is deadly silent, and blisteringly fast to auto focus.  And by that, I mean instant. Even in low light situations its performing incredibly well for me……….

35mm f/1.4 vs. 35mm f/2 WR | Fuji vs. Fuji

We like refer to the 50mm equivalent as “normal,” the focal length chosen to most closely match our own field of view. Despite this rather boring moniker, the normal lens is used by a huge number of photographers to create spectacular images. If I could have only one focal length, it would be 50mm. It’s an awfully important focal length to get right with multiple camera companies offering a dizzying array of choices in the normal range. Up until recently, Fuji had a single option. Fortunately, it’s an excellent one. Yes, focus can be slow on occasion, particularly in poor light, but optically, it is stellar. The new weather sealed option has a lot to live up to. In this versus piece, we’ll explore how well it does………

Fuji 35mm f/1.4 vs. Fuji 35mm f/2 | Admiring Light

Today, I’m pitting the original lens for the X-Series, the venerable XF 35mm f/1.4 R against the new normal prime, the XF 35mm f/2 R WR, a slightly more compact and weather resistant lens that has just been released for the X-Series of interchangeable lens cameras.  The lenses carry the same field of view and have a one stop difference in aperture.  Which should you get?  Is the new lens better than the relatively good 35mm f/1.4?  Let’s find out. The two lenses share a lot in common, but differ in several key ways.  Both lenses are constructed with a solid metal shell and are roughly the same overall size.  The new XF 35mm f/2 tapers towards the end of the lens and is very slightly shorter, so it looks smaller than it really is.  The 35mm f/2 is a bit more solidly constructed than its f/1.4 brother, and has some weather resistance as well, but both are well-built………..
