Fuji’s Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens: A Review | Unique Photo

Big aperture portrait lenses are one of the crucial features in a lens system. Until recently, mirrorless camera manufacturers did not offer a variety in this respect. Fujifilm has finally launched the new Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R. Currently, this is the fastest Fuji lens available with affordable pricing and best reviews. Interestingly, the lens does not feature the focus clutch mechanism that is present in the previous Fujinon XF series. However, the focus ring operates smoothly, and the lens has a superb built quality with a metal body based on the mount. The lens hood made of plastic is a part of the package and can withstand the daily wear and tear.Let’s look at some of the interesting dimensions and features of the Fujinon lens…….

Fujifilm XF16-55mm f/2.8 Nano-GI WR Lens Preview and Gallery |
Matthew Maddock

So, I can now finally reveal that I had the chance to shoot with a pre-production version of the newly (now officially) announced Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 X-Mount lens back in December last year along with my friend Dave Kai-Piper who was shooting a range of images.  I was given the opportunity to shoot some images of my own for this site to share with you all.  Dave was shooting his own speciality of fashion, so I took some random shots of the surrounding location! I’ve had a bit of time with the XF50-140 2.8 lens previously and was totally blown away with it.  The 16-55 2.8 is designed to complement that lens and gives the professional those two classics, the 24-70 (ish) and 70-200 (ish) f/2.8 lenses that are the staple of so many professional dSLR shooters.  I’ve shot with Nikon versions and owned a 70-200 VR back in the day, and these two lenses are, at worst, the equal of those and in my own opinion really do beat them both.  I can see a lot of professionals loving these lenses.  I could probably shoot almost everything I do with just the 16-55mm f/2.8 and never have to take it off a body!……

Bokeh Bomb – Fujinon 56mm F1.2 APD Review | Sven Schroeter

Before we begin, lets get one thing straight, we LOVE the standard 56mm lens! I hate to say it, but the APD evolution is going to have to be pretty special to rock the foundations of our existing relationship. Even after reading what wizardry lies within the 56mm APD lens, we still do not fully understand or comprehend how it was achieved. But for all practical purposes, the technical terms used to confuse us and describe the magic are meaningless if the promise of STUNNING bokeh is a lie! If you are interested in this lens, then you will understand why we chose to make all our review images with an F1.2 aperture (the lens’s maximum). For those who need a quick bokeh tutorial, are confused about aperture or need to brush up on some basics, we recommend reading ‘The Art of Bokeh’ post before continuing on, you simply do not buy this lens unless you are obsessed with Bokeh! In combination with the X series electronic shutter and the supplied ND filter (freebee with the lens), there is no reason to twist the aperture ring off F1.2 (unless you are in the studio). The further away from F1.2 you go, the smaller the difference between the image created by the standard 56mm and the APD evolution becomes. So, if you are not a large aperture photographer and are not in search of the ultimate bokeh experience, the standard 56mm lens will still fulfill your wildest dreams and satisfy many clients! Keep that in mind, because there is a significant price difference between the two lenses……

FUJI XF16-55mm F2.8 WR, the new PRIME zoom? | Ivan Joshua Loh

The new Fuji XF16-55mm F2.8R LM WR. Can this be the ultimate “fix on” lens on your camera for any photographer. I meant the ultimate zoom lens to fix on your Fuji camera? Especially mated with the XT-1. Together they form the ultimate all weather duo! Be it a street photographer shooting at the Songkran festival. Capturing the fun on the biggest street water fight festival celebrated by the whole people of Thailand. An adventurer, exploring the dense amazon rain forest in Brazil. Or loving grand father shooting his cheeky little 3 year old grand daughter playing with her food. Last but not least even for a commercial photographer like myself. Can I shoot fashion, annual reports, food,  interior and still be on par with the those award winning Fujinon prime lenses? Will this be the lens for photographers who need a standard zoom with prime lens quality? Personally I love this focal length of 24mm to 84mm of the 35mm format equivalent. At 24mm I am able to capture lovely landscape to amazing architecture. At far end; its almost perfect as a standard portraits lens. I have in hand a pre production lens from the kind people of Fujifilm Singapore. This lens have a filter size of 77mm and weighting a beefy 655gm. When fitted on the XT1 it feels a little front heavy. Once I attached the battery grip on it, the balance is much better. AF is quick and accurate……

Fuji X100T review | Digital Camera World

The latest camera in Fujifilm’s high-end X series is the Fuji X100T, which is very similar to the X100S, boasting the same 16-megapixel X-Trans CMOS II sensor and Fujinon 23mm (35mm equivalent) f/2 lens. It also uses the same EXR Processor II, which at the time of the X100S’s release was claimed to produce images with 30% higher signal to noise ratio than those from the original X100. So what’s new and is it worth an upgrade? In her Fuji X100T review video, Amy Davies takes a look at what’s new, highlighting key features and settings, and giving a verdict on the X100T’s performance and image quality…….

Working With The Fuji 50-140mm Zoom Lens | Kevin Raber

I remember back to what seems like an eternity ago to the early cell phones.  I had a cell phone or more like a suitcase phone that I could carry in my briefcase.  I always thought it couldn’t get any better than this.  Then phones started to get smaller, and the race was on to make phones as small as possible.  The iPhone, my phone of choice, got so small I once again thought it couldn’t get any smaller.  And, what do you know, smaller is no longer the in thing as we have all seen by the popularity of the iPhone 6+ and its size.  Now this is not an article about cell phones but the same kind of trend from small to big is true with cameras and lenses. In the last few years, we have seen the birth of a new line of cameras that the industry calls mirrorless.  That term is so new it doesn’t even show up as the correct word in spell checkers.  With the introduction of mirrorless cameras, the lenses got smaller.  Fuji as well as Olympus, Panasonic and Sony have introduced a line of mirrorless cameras.  Mirrorless cameras are quickly being adopted as the go-to camera systems for many reasons.  The biggest reason other than the state of the art Electronic Viewfinder is weight and size………

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens Review |
ePhotoZine

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Verdict

Fujifilm’s forthcoming range of f/2.8 zoom lenses have been eagerly awaited for some time amongst Fujifilm X-series camera owners, and this first addition to the range does not disappoint. Although it may seem expensive at first glance, Fujifilm have created a lens capable of delivering image quality of the highest order, that is robustly built, lightweight, weather resistant and that focuses quickly to boot. The performance of this lens puts it on a par with the finest 70-200mm f/2.8 optics available for full frame cameras and invariably, they cost a fair bit more than £1200.

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Pros
  • Superb sharpness throughout the zoom range
  • Robust build
  • Lightweight
  • Retro design with manual aperture ring
  • Extremely low CA
  • Low distortion
  • Weather resistant construction
  • Fast focusing
  • Effective stabiliser

Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R OIS WR Cons

  • Attaching / removing tripod mount a little fiddly…….

Hands-on with Fujifilm’s new XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens | Digital Photography Review

It’s been on Fujifilm’s X-series roadmap for a while, but now it’s real – the XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR is a 24-83mm equivalent, weather-sealed standard zoom for Fujifilm’s high-end X-series interchangeable lens cameras, which offers a fast maximum aperture of F2.8 throughout its zoom range. As CES gets started in Las Vegas, we grabbed a few minutes with the new zoom….
 
Although by no means a ‘big’ lens, as this image shows, the 16-55mm is pretty substantial and definitely looks large on Fujifilm’s flagship X-T1. The combination is nicely weighted though and we suspect that the triple threat of a fast-aperture, excellent build-quality and quick AF (we only had a few minutes with a pre-production model but Fujifilm’s claims seem justified) will win over a lot of enthusiast X-series users. Obviously the proof is in the pudding, and we’ll get a sample gallery online just as soon as we get our hands on a shipping-quality sample……

Fuji Grips HG-XE1 vs MHG-XE | Derren Hodson

This is a comparison and review of the two grips you can buy for the Fuji XE-1 or XE-2. The original grip for the XE-1 (HG-XE1) and the newer grip for the XE-1 or 2 (MHG-XE) both fit both cameras. The original grip was introduced along with the XE-1 and is required for better handling of the camera with heavier lenses, i.e. 56mm and the 23mm. The original grip was made of plastic and screws onto the bottom of the camera, it has a very nice felt bottom and a self fastening screw. The second version is made of metal and has an allen bolt so you need to have an allen key tool to unscrew and screw it in, this makes it more of a permanent fixture. There is no felt on the bottom but is finished to a high quality, it also has a little lip unlike the original which is flush…..
