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………..

My Fuji vs. Olympus catch-22 | Vassilios Zacharitsev

Regular readers of this blog would know that I use both Olympus and Fuji cameras. I may happen to occasionally use another brand, but it will probably be for testing/review purposes. Although I started shooting Olympus m43 cameras exclusively more than 3 years ago, during the last year or so I also entered the X-System and, today, use is practically equally divided between the two. It’s funny if you recall that both companies are named after holy mountains; Olympus from the Greek mountain of the Gods, and Fuji taking its name from that natural monument of Japanese culture. But, apart from that, both companies have much more in common. It could be said that both target broadly the same audience. Although they have consumer cameras in their line-up, the throw their weight on the higher level enthusiastmarket, while their flagships also target professional users. Same is true about their respective lens systems. They have both decided to go with the retro styling; Fuji even extending it to the control structure. This, I believe, have gained them quite a following, be it from nostalgic film-era photographers, hipsters, or, simply those with enough taste to loathe the bloated „black jellybean“ look of modern DSLRs. There are other common themes between the two brands, which we’ll discuss later on…….

Nikon D600 vs Fujifilm X-T1 | Photo Madd

I’ve been using the Fujifilm X-Series almost exclusively now for around 4 years, ever since the X-Pro1 came out.  I have dabbled with other cameras, but nothing has stuck for my day-to-day shooting.  I know them intimately, and I enjoy shooting with them. Part of the fun of photography for me is the geeky tech side of things and trying stuff out.  If I’m perfectly frank, aside from lenses, Fujifilm haven’t released anything in quite a while now that has really pushed my buttons like the original X100 and the X-Pro1 did.  Camera hardware has kind of stalled at the X-E2, yes firmware has made it quicker but we’ve not had anything all that interestingly different for me personally to get all that excited about.  I have a feeling the X-Pro2 will address that, but until then we have to wait.  The lenses from Fujifilm are amazing and always have been, we have a roadmap of what’s coming for a while unless they spring any surprises on us we know what is coming!  What is there to say about the lenses from Fujifilm now – they haven’t made a bad one yet, even the cheapo “XC” lenses are really damn good!  The only thing to choose between them is if you want OIS, and what focal length you want – you really can’t pick a bad lens from the Fujifilm line-up!  That’s great and it genuinely is an amazing system that Fujifilm have built…….

Fuji X-T1 vs Sony A7r – A Pixel-To-Pixel Showdown | Alik Griffin

Since early 2013 with the introduction of the X100s, the Fuji X-Trans CMOS II APS-C has been Fujifilm’s flagship sensor that they’ve been using in all their APS-C cameras. While winning much praise from Fuji fans, the sensor also holds a lot of mystery and even retains some criticism. The performance specs of the sensor after all remain relatively unknown. The last time DXOMark touched a Fujifilm camera was back 2013, completely ignoring this new sensor and we’ve been left in the dark on how it rates against the competition in terms of dynamic range, sharpness, high ISO and color accuracy. As we all know, or should I say, according to DXOMark, Sony makes what are considered to be the best sensors out there. With the Sony A7r (and soon to be A7rII) being their best camera in terms of sensor performance with still photography, the cameras also has this special capability of being placed in a 16 megapixel APS-C crop mode. This makes it the perfect camera to put up against the Fuji X-T1 at a pixel-to-pixel comparison. Meaning, I’m not going to compare the Full Frame vs. APS-C qualities of the camera, instead I’m comparing the real estate of the sensor itself. With the Sony A7r placed in APS-C crop mode it becomes nearly identical to the Fuji X-T1. Both cameras will be at 16 megapixels, both having a 1.5x APS-C crop factor. Both sensors are even manufactured by Sony, but both cameras seem to produce two very different RAW files……
