The Lights are Going Out all over Cardiff… | Pete takes Pictures

Something of a melodramatic title, but these are melodramatic times. In the age of austerity, when local council budgets have been slashed and slashed again, funding for the arts has practically dried up.  Like murder victims in some sort of Agatha Christie drama, centres for the local arts have recently been knocked off one by one by some shadowy executioner. We lost the wonderful city centre exhibition space of Abacus a few weeks ago. Very shortly the historic Cardiff University Settlement building in Splott, a beating heart for the district’s community,  will cease to exist as it is knocked down to make way for flats.  Most of the libraries in the city have been converted into ‚Hubs‘, with the amount of stock available drastically slashed. The main concert venue in Cardiff, St. David’s Hall, sees its future in doubt as cuts begin to find their way deep to the marrow. But hey, so long as the city can brag about Tom Jones and  rugby and Charlotte Church (though she does actually have a charged kind of awesome herself – see new footnote*) and make believe that there’s some sort of Cool Cymru thing going on in a capital that’s becoming increasingly void of culture, I guess everything’s cool – right?….

Fuji XF 35mm f1.4 vs XF 35mm f2 | Ted A. Vieira

These are my thoughts on the differences between these two lenses. Hopefully this might help you if you’re looking to buy a 35mm lens but not sure which one to get. Of course everybody is different. I’d really recommend that you try out both lenses for yourself. I think that shooting for just a few minutes with each lens will help you decide. I wrote a couple posts on these lenses. This first link goes to a post I put together initially after I bought the XF 35mm f1.4 version (before trying the f2 version)…….

Fuji XF 35mm F2 R WR vs. XF 35mm F1.4 R Lens Comparison |
Patrick Leong

To me, the XF 35mm F1.4 is an excellent lens.  It’s combination of impressive optics, speed, focal length, versatility, size, and price make it a great workhorse, and one of the most popular lenses in the Fuji X Series system.  But now, another lens of this focal length, the XF 35mm F2 R WR lens, has been introduced by Fuji, which is sure to make some who are interested in a 53mm equivalent lens wonder which version of this focal length is best for them. I figured since I had both lenses in my hands, I would write up a comparison between these two optics.  Just keep in mind a few things as you read it: These tests are meant to be fun, and while they can tell you about certain traits a lens may have, these tests never tell the whole story……..

All I Can Say is Wow – The New Fuji XF 35mm f2.0 R WR |
Ted A. Vieira

Oh man. I wasn’t going to get this lens. I have the original 35mm 1.4 and love the image quality of that lens. It’s really something special. (you can read my love for this lens here) I However, I’ve heard so many Fuji photographers give such raving reviews of this lens that I had to check it out. It Got Here a Day Early! I ordered this lens from B&H and expected it to arrive tomorrow, but at around 4pm this afternoon UPS dropped this (not literally) at my front door. Wow, a day early – that has to be a good omen. Did I Mention It’s Quiet! I quickly put the lens on my X-T1 and started taking a few test shots around the living room. Wow, (I’ll try not to use that word too many more times) I could not believe how quiet the focusing is on this lens. Whereas I think the 35mm 1.4 is the noisiest Fuji lens I own…….

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………..

Wedding Photography 2015 with Fujifilm X-T1, 35mm, and 56mm lenses |
Mark Hadden

It had been a great year for wedding photography and I am lucky to have been part of a few weddings this year and hoping for many more in 2016. So many great couples have really added their personalities to their photos. Lots of new friends and relationships have been made. I made the transition from Canon 5d3 to the X-T1 earlier this year and indeed it was a bit frightening at first. A whole new system! God what was I thinking? It took me a while to get used to it and read a lot of helpful articles on the fuji x series blog HERE. I saw a few people switching over and somehow this made me feel more comfortable. I love the x cameras and also use the X100T for wedding work, but the 35mm 1.4 and 56 1.2 are my go to lenses. The image quality from the Fuji X System is great.  I’m not going to lie and say I dont miss anything about the full frame 24mp sensor of the Canon because I do. I miss the detail from the larger sensor for sure. I also shoot architecture and use a 36mp Sony A7R for that. If I could have half way between the A7R and X-T1 for detail I would be more than happy…….

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R – | Jordan Steele

The XF 35mm f/1.4 is one of the trio of lenses that debuted with the original X-Series camera, the X-Pro 1. Along with the XF 60mm f/2.4 Macro and the XF 18mm f/2, it’s the oldest lens in the XF lineup. Starting the X-Series with an f/1.4 normal prime was a fairly big deal: it showed that Fuji was catering to the serious shooter, and it displayed a commitment to fast glass: something the other mirrorless makers left until much later in the development of their systems. Fuji also started the X series with high quality in mind and the 35mm f/1.4 features an all-metal construction with nicely ribbed focus ring. The 35mm f/1.4 is a solid lens and feels very much like some of the older manual focus 50mm lenses from the 60s. The 35mm’s focus group is the front element group, which moves and extends during focusing, which feels a bit behind the times with regards to many of the other XF prime lenses, most of which feature internal focusing. The aperture ring on the 35mm f/1.4 is fairly average by Fuji standards. It is not on par with the well-damped ring with solid detents that the XF 90mm f/2 or the f/2.8 zooms display, nor is it as loose as the terrible aperture ring on the 14mm f/2.8. The f-stop is selectable in 1/3 stop increments from f/1.4 to f/16 and generally, the ring stays where you put it. The focus ring is well damped, though not as silky smooth as the rings on several of the later XF prime lenses. It’s not bad, but it does feel slightly ‘scratchy’ due to some resistance against the barrel………
