Fujifilm Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R

Detroit WWIM Recap & First Impression of the Fuji XF 14mm | Rivals

During Detroit’s Worldwide InstaMeet (WWIM) I had the opportunity to meet fellow X-Photographer Bryan Minear, he was cool and all, but this post isn’t about him haha, It’s about this beautiful piece of glass he shared with me. The Fujifilm XF 14mm. Now typically I’m not a wide shooter, the XF 18 I own is about as wide as I need any lens, and honestly a XF 23 would replace that if it wasn’t for the huge price difference, but when I had to take this baby out on the streets for a day I figured why not. Now I’m lucky enough to live in Downtown Detroit, where we have a lot of high rise buildings, old textures and the riverwalk… Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of any of this, but I hope the ones below, as well as the text is helpful in deciding if this lens is for you or not……

Panorama Photography Meets the Fuji X Series | John Miskelly

I would like to start off by clarifying what we commonly understand panoramic photography to be. Panorama photography is a technique that enables us to capture an image with an elongated field of view, approximating or greater to that of the human eye. This is widely considered to be around 160° by 75°, which equates to an aspect ratio of 2:1 or an image that is at least twice as wide as it is high. Some panoramic images are 3:1, 4:1 and larger, sometimes even covering the full 360° field of view. The above image of the Trevi Fountain in Rome was the first stitched panorama I attempted with my original X-E1 and XF 14mm lens. Fuji X-E1 and XF 14mm lens. Exposures 2.5 seconds, f8 and ISO 200 consisting of 8 images. While there are a number of different ways to produce a panoramic image, I’m going to tell you how I approach this subject, specifically using my Fuji X system. First of all, in terms of taking the image, I use a specialist panorama head that rotates around what is called the nodal point, to capture multiple images of the subject. By rotating around this nodal point, we avoid parallax error (where there is a change in the apparent position of a closer object relative to a more distant object). I then take the sequence of images, say typically between 5 and 7 images, and stitch them together in specialist stitching software in my computer. In my case I use PTGui Pro……..

Winter landscape for fun with the XF 14mm Fujifilm lens | Gavin Lyons

I took the wide angle lens for my Fujifilm X-T1 camera out on a bright and cheerful Saturday morning. The lens in question is known as the XF 14mm ƒ2.8 lens in 35mm terms – 18mm. I hadn’t used it for quite awhile and felt somewhat with guilt. That it had sat collecting dust and not light.  It seemed today was the day, with abounding blue skies with the added gift of clear winter light. The Fuschl am See was the place chosen beforehand during the week. A lake in the Salzkammergut outside the city of Salzburg in Austria.  Perfect to stroll along a path within the snow for a wintery walk. The lake itself – Fuschl am See is interesting indeed  but not enough this time around as I had photographed it before. The appeal on this day was the perfect crispy whitened layer snow on either side of the path. There were no clouds marking the sky, the sun was present but hadn’t dominated or washed away the blue around it. The various trees and their stems became silhouettes against the highlighted colored background. Seeing the river reeds dry and preserved they still remained standing. Looking closely at the bushes now bare, ice crystals hung.   All these things were reason enough to photograph and be creative with the wide angle Fujinon lens that was attached to my Fujifilm X-T1 camera – which you can see below with it’s fancy vintage strap……

Review Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R | Anno Huidekoper

The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R has very few competitors. Brands like Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina do not produce any lenses with the Fuji mount. Zeiss makes the Touit 12 mm f/2.8, and Samyang, a 16 mm f/2.0. The latter, however, does not have auto focus. From the brand itself, the Fujinon XF 10-24 mm f/4.0 almost comes close. If you’re going for high brightness and limited weight, then the 14 mm Fujinon XF premier reviewed here is more interesting than that zoom, though. The Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R is the most wide-angle premier from Fuji and reminds me of my Nikon F2AS, which I once had. The brightness, the size and the field of view are nearly identical, and I have a weakness for the field of view of roughly 90 degrees diagonally. We reviewed this Fujinon 14 mm lens in combination with the Fujifilm X-E2. This is the successor of the X-E1, a camera with an electronic viewfinder and the appearance and ease of use of a camera with an analog rangefinder……

Loving My Fuji Gear | Skutters

I decided that i needed to do something to get myself out of the rut i had gotten into that is not going out looking for images my Club Photography was suffering as i had no images for the Competitions. The main issue was weight with suffering from lower back prob’s it would not take that long before i would have a aching back when trying to walk around somewhere for the day with the camera bag and Full Frame Nikon Gear, so took the plunge and sold the Nikon Gear to get a X System. I am so happy with this system the last couple of weekends i have been out looking for Landscape shots for an upcoming Landscape Competition, i went out with my XE2 & 18-55 + 14mm a few accesories in a small bag all i needed for the day and it weighed next to nothing.  The only weight being my tripod but i have a strap for that which makes it easier. Plus i have been really happy with the quality of the Fuji lenses i particualy like the 14mm it is a super lens……

Fuji XF 14mm f2.8 R review | Rory Prior

Let’s just start by saying I’m really excited by this lens. I used to own the really nice Samyang 14mm f2.8 when I shot Nikon and it’s a focal length I’ve missed since switching to Fuji. For the last couple of years a Samyang 8mm fisheye was my fallback ultra-wide option, but fisheyes have limitations and I found I was using mine less and less. As a result I decided to sell it a few months ago. That left me with the 18mm f2 as my widest lens. The 18mm is a good lens, but it does have its shortcomings optically and I found myself yearning for something that could produce more dramatic results for landscape and street work. I did seriously consider Samyang’s new 12mm f2 ultra-wide angle, but I’ve read so many good things about the Fuji 14mm I decided to play it safe. I’m glad I did – this lens is clearly a winner……..

Two (amazing) hours in Monument Valley | Olaf Sztaba

During our recent photography trip south of the border, Monument Valley was not even on our itinerary. One morning we finished photographing the Grand Canyon and planned to head back. However, we knew that Monument Valley – a place that we have been always fascinated with – was only four hours away. We were not sure whether to go there since we would have only one or two hours before it got dark. We are glad we did. Indeed, it is a magical place. When approaching the Navajo Nation Reservation you notice the cluster of huge sandstone buttes, the largest as high as 1,000 ft (300m) above the valley floor. The scenery is so different from what we have ever seen that you have the impression of visiting a different planet. It should be no surprise that a place of such a beauty is one of the most photographed locations in the United States. As a result, it is difficult (especially in two hours) to capture the wonderful imagery. Regardless, equipped with the Fuji X100T and Fuji X-T1 paired with XF 14mm F2.8 and XF 50-140 F2.8 we thoroughly enjoyed photographing Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii (Navajo: The Valley Of The Rocks)……

A Review of the Fuji XF 14mm 2.8 | Jason Row

Conclusion

When moving to the Fuji X series from Nikon, one of my biggest concerns was whether there really was a replacement for my beloved 14-24mm. Whilst not a direct replacement as it is a prime lens, the XF14mm f2.8 has become even more of to go lens than the Nikon. Its compact size, outstanding image quality but most of all that beautiful aperture ring, go towards making this one of the best lenses I have ever owned…..

Fuji XF 14mm lens review | Mark Richards

There is something that new users need to know about the Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 lens –  as the X series are not full-frame cameras then the lens is really equivalent to a 21mm lens when it comes to the field of view and should be considered with this in mind.  This is not like the Voigtländer 15mm lens in terms of its field of view so it is important you manage your expectations.  It remains however an ultra-wide angle lens by any standards and gives a pretty extreme angle of view at 89º.  The lens I am using as a benchmark for this review is the Zeiss Biogon T* 2.8/21 for the Contax G2 as that was my stock 21mm lens for years and is outstanding quality. One of the first photographs I took with the Fuji 14mm lens is the one of Tower Bridge (above) which was taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera.  Click on the images to enlarge (but please remember the sample images are copyright and shouldn’t be used without my permission) ……

London and Fuji strike again, with an evening detour to the BWPA |
Lizzie Shepherd

Earlier this week I made my second trip of the summer down to London – this time a flying visit of less than 24 hours. I had two reasons for going down. Firstly to attend the British Wildlife Photography Awards, having been delighted to find I had a photograph shortlisted and printed in the book. Secondly to visit Charlie Waite’s wonderful exhibition of both old and recent work at the National Theatre – I have long been a big fan of Charlie’s work and was so pleased the exhibition was extended by a few weeks, allowing me the opportunity to get down to see it.
