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……

14mm f/2.8 vs. 16mm f/1.4 vs. 18mm f/2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

It’s been relatively easy to decide between Fuji’s wide angle prime offerings up until recently. One could either go for the really wide, full(er)-featured, king of landscapes, the XF 14mm f/2.8, or the smaller, faster, lighter, more portrait and street-focused XF 18mm f/2. There was enough of a variance in focal length to make choosing simple, or owning both perfectly viable. Fuji has thrown a large wrench into our purchase decision with the release of the XF 16mm f/1.4. It packs all the features of the 14mm f/2.8 and adds weather sealing, a Nano GI coating, offers even faster aperture performance than the 18mm f/2, but comes with a significant enough size and weight penalty. This article will hopefully help you decide which wide angle primes are right for you, if any…..

Fuji X-T1 First Impressions + Why I Switched from the Sony a7s |
Devin Jameson

Just received the Fuji X-T1 about a week ago and so far I’m loving it. Prior to the X-T1 I was shooting mostly with the Sony a7s. It’s an amazing camera technically speaking, but has really started bugging me lately. It’s great for serious landscape or portrait work, but something about the way it processes images makes colors and tones look a off to my eye. Too vibrant. It doesn’t really work for street photography or family/travel stuff. The tones/colors tend to be really technical looking. Also the ergonomics are just plain awful. If you’re going for an intense, poppy, eye-catching look, the a7s is great. E.g. the photo below. But if you like more subdued tones and accurate colors, it doesn’t really fit the bill. Come to think of it, the photos of the X-T1 at the top of this review were shot with the Sony a7s and Minolta 85mm f/1.4. The images don’t look bad, but there’s something about Sony’s tones that have a very distinct look to me. If you check out any of Asilda Photography’s reviews, you’ll see what I mean (she shoots with an a7r)…….

X-T10 vs. X-T1 vs. X-E2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

Thanks to the rumour mills, damn near everything about the X-T10 has been revealed. If you haven’t read enough about it already, you can read more in my thorough review here. What I haven’t seen much, if any of, is how this camera stacks up against Fuji’s other cameras. While it’s beyond obvious the X-T10 takes its cues from the X-T1 in name and body-styling, the X-E line is also a good comparison when it comes to size, weight, feature-set, and price point. This article will compare the three. Much of this piece has been lifted from my newly updated X-T1 vs. X-E2 vs. X-Pro1 article, which remains one of the more popular pages on Fuji vs. Fuji. I’ve opted not to include the X-Pro1 in this comparison as time and firmware updates have left it so far in the past, I can’t imagine it being much of a consideration for those interested in the X-T10……
