Why the Fuji 55-200 is still a good choice | Martin Castein

At the time of writing the 50-140 is just around the corner, and the 90f2 will be here next year some time. The 55-200, still deserves respect. This lens is sharp, light, cheap, fits into the light-weight portable fuji mentality as best a zoom of this nature can. The image stabilization is incredible, tripod-like. I have to really think about what I use this lens for. Generally I use it for shots where people aren’t moving much. Maybe they are walking, but mostly they are stood still. With its great compression you can isolate a bride in a busy room. The 55-200 focus is plenty fast enough to focus on people walking, it wont catch kids running, but I dont think any Fuji lens will. What shocks me is the image stabilization. It is truly incredible. I have been used to the Nikon 70-200 2.8 vr ii. The image stabilization on the Nikon is mild at best. On the Fuji its like its saying “let me take care of that for you” and it just freezes completely. Quite incredible…….

Yes, I would love some T please! | Paul Schlemmer

I have a girlfriend for past couple years. Man,I got lucky and she’s quite amazing. I mean, of course sometimes she pisses me off. Sometimes I piss her off totally. Sometimes I’m acting like an asshole and have all these bizarre, ridiculously high requirements. But you know, we love each other, we know each other pretty good, sometimes we fight hard- just like every other solid happy relationship. Earlier this year she got herself a new haircut. Went from long hair to shorter, more attractive looking haircut. Amazing. Sort of like a dating a new chick if you know what I mean. Banging a totally new smarter chick but legally and with all the advantages of a previous long term relationship. Why am I telling you this and why is this relevant? Because it’s the same story with me and the new Fujifilm X100T. “That’s a silly comparison” …..

Fujifilm X100T Full Review | ePhoto Zine

I was also keen to get my X100S re-skinned at the same time as a matching pair so cheekily asked if I could have my X100S done as well!  I went back and forth over the colours, the orange really appealed to me right away but I wasn’t really sure if I was ready for an orange camera!  I initially asked for both of them to be done in the red lizard, which I think works well with the black finish of both cameras, but the red wasn’t in stock and available when I went down to Fuji HQ to have them done.  However, now I’ve had them both done I’m so glad it wasn’t!  In the end as you can see, I opted for and orange X-Pro1 and a dark blue lizard X100S…….

Fuji XF18-135 F3.5-5.6 R OIS WR lens review (Part 1) | Mike Evans

Opening the box of a new Fujinon lens is an adventure. Every lens has a different set of bells and whistles and, unless you are already familiar with the range you are likely to in for a surprise. From the minimal 27mm pancake to the more complicated 14mm and 23mm lenses with their push-pull switchover from manual to auto focus, these optics demand an open mind. Sometimes, I imagine that the boffins at Fujinon work in hermetically sealed bubbles. Apart from the trademark shiny black-metal surface, their lenses are individualist and, dare I say, often a little eccentric. Leica M lenses, in direct contrast, all have the same basic layout. Everything is in its place, just where the gods intended. Focus ring? Aperture? They are precisely where you left them last time you picked up any M lens……..

Fujifilm X100T Digital Camera Review | Brendan Nystedt

Not too long ago, Fujifilm was a company known for mediocre point-and-shoots and some reworked Nikon DSLRs. The camera company we know under the same name today is hardly recognizable by comparison, all thanks to a little camera called the X100. This single product spawned a brand new fleet of Fuji products, changing the direction of the company seemingly overnight. Two years ago, it would have been unthinkable for Fujifilm to jump into the mirrorless camera business. Today? Fujifilm’s X-mount lens system is 15 lenses deep, with a variety of bodies. It might be an oversimplification, but we think it’s completely thanks to the X100. The humble camera that started it all (again) for Fujifilm was based on a simple enough premise. By mixing a DSLR-sized sensor, a unique optical/electronic viewfinder, and a fixed-focal, 23mm f/2 lens, it already had a lot going for it on specs alone. By wrapping the X100 in a drop-dead gorgeous classic rangefinder look, Fujifilm pushed the concept over the top. Even though you could confuse the brand-new X100T (MSRP $1,299.95) for either the original X100 or last year’s X100S, it’s actually the deepest revision the product has seen since 2011…….

Leica M-P Review: This time it makes sense to upgrade your old M |
Mike Evans

A couple of years after the introduction of a new M camera you can be pretty certain it will be joined by a P (for Professional) version that adds some cosmetic changes and, usually, a tougher rear screen in return for a few hundred pounds enhancement to the already sizeable tag. In my opinion the silver M-P looks best. Note the return of the frameline lever (to the right of the lens) which helps add to the M3 nostalgia. So it is with the M Type 240 which was launched in September 2012 and reached dealers’ shelves in the Spring of last year. Eighteen months on and the new M-P has arrived. Compared with previous P versions, this new camera, which comes in either silver or black, offers a longer list of improvements and tweaks for a premium of only £550*. This is is considered a modest increment at Leica. Cosmetically, the M-P is set apart by the missing Leica logo and M designation on the front of the camera. The image of restraint is enhanced by traditional engraving on the camera top plate, reminiscent of the original M3 from 1954. The iconic cursive Leica name is accompanied by the simple wording “Leica Camera Wetzlar Germany”. That’s it. With eagle eyes you can check this is an M-P is by the model designation on one shoulder of the hotshoe mount. The camera serial number is on the other side, as on the M…..

12 Months With My Fuji X-Pro1 | Dave Young

I’ve had my Fuji X-Pro1 for just about a year now so thought it would be a good time to review the past 12 months of living with it and jot down the highs and lows of life with the Fuji X-Pro1. Having made a decision to swap over from an all prime DSLR full frame kit, the X-Pro1 was a shoe in as a change. I did consider the XE1 initially, but as soon as I cradled the X-Pro1 in my arms I was sold. I was in search of something smaller, lighter, just as capable for image quality and the Fuji X-Pro1 fitted all of those criteria. Added to that was the customer service that Fuji was fast building a reputation for, continuing to take good care of its past client base through firmware updates for its camera bodies and lenses, long after they’d been superseded. Using the X-Pro1 you don’t just buy into a camera system, you kind of buy into a whole eco-system, care included……

First Impressions: Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR |
The Phoblographer

First ImpressionsThe Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 lens’ generous wide focal length range makes it a very attractive option for photographers. Whether you’re street shooing or covering events, this lens could do it all. Combined with the X-T1 you could have a great all-in-one kit that’s also designed to withstand the elements. There’s a lot of promise from this lens and so far it has not impressed us in any regard. So far it just seems to be a lens with good build, good ergonomics, and good image quality. While I’m feeling pretty ho-hum on the lens right now, I’ll have to put this lens through the rigors of a full review before I can give my final verdict on this jack-of-all-trades kit……..

10 months with the X-T1 | John Caz

….Last words

Its no secret that I’m in love with the X-T1. My back is in favor of the small size which means my whole bag with cameras, lenses and accessories is also a lot smaller and lighter. The smaller size of the X-T1 allows me to blend in more without intimidating my subjects plus the quality of the files, both JPEG and RAW are amazing. So far I haven’t felt the need to go back to a DSLR nor do i feel that I am missing something. On the contrary, i don’t understand why anyone would want to use a large and heavy DSLR when you can be using the X-T1!  – (Sports and wildlife photographers excluded) …

First Impressions: The Fujifilm X-100T is a Subtle but
Significant Upgrade | Bigheadtaco

I finally have the new Fujifilm X-100T in my hands. It feels familiar, and it should. It’s basically the same as the X-100S with subtle exterior upgrades. So subtle that many reviewers didn’t mention some of them. However, for an X-100 shooter, it’s the subtle upgrades that will help you shoot faster and with more confidence. This isn’t the X-200, so don’t expect any extreme upgrades. Yes, an articulating screen would have been nice, but focusing on upgrading the hybrid optical-electronic viewfinder was a good idea. Concentrate on what makes you different, and not what everyone else is doing. Almost every manufacturer is abandoning the optical viewfinder (except higher end DSLR’s and Leica M rangefinders). Fuji is investing in this older technology, but improving upon it. This is good news. My first impression so far is that this is a must-have camera for those who love to shoot through optical viewfinders and also those who love Fuji X-series cameras. Let’s take a quick look…
