The Zeiss Touit 50mm Macro Full Review | MirrorLessons

Conclusion

The Zeiss Touit 50mm 2.8 Macro is a very nice lens capable of delivering excellent quality. It is very sharp, has good close-up capabilities and good AF performance. I could not find a flaw during the time I tested it. The rubber covering both the aperture and focus rings are nice to use, and the lens is very light and therefore easy to carry. Since it offers a 1:1 scale ratio for macro work, it is perhaps the most interesting lens out of the trio for the Fuji X system so far…….

Fujifilm X-T1 + 23mm f/1.4 Lens Review | Kris Connor

This past September was my eighth season traveling up to New York City from Washington DC to cover Fashion Week. I truly enjoy photographing Fashion Week. Even though it’s chaotic, I love the thrill and constant stimulation. In regards to equipment I am your typical photojournalist, photographing with two DSLR bodies, one-two flashes and two zoom lenses. Over the last few years, as I have moved more into reportage work, I’ve become tired of carrying all that gear around. I have been looking to lighten my normal load. In recent years, I have gained interest in investing in the mirrorless systems that are coming on the market due to their light weight, size and quietness. Their image quality is starting to match to the SLR systems in the recent years. When Adorama gave me the opportunity to test out the Fuji X-T1 with a 23mm F1.4 lens during this past fashion week, I jumped on the opportunity…..

Day 2 With the Fuji X-T1 – With Jesmina Aktar | Keenan Hastings

Back again with the Fuji X-T1, for those of you that haven’t read “Day 1″ click here… Now that you’re caught up, lets move on. I had an opportunity to take my X-T1 on its first photo shoot! I was rather excited, yet nervous, I’m honestly not 100% confident using the camera because all of the new controls. One, being the electronic viewfinder, it’s amazing, but sometimes I’m not sure if I’m in focus, even with the focus assist (peaking) feature I’ve been second guessing myself; It worked great in portraits from the chest up, but pictures at a distance not so much, though I’m sure its a user error. The other small flaw is some of the manual controls at the top, though the ISO lock button is annoying, I’ve grown to appreciate it, I actually wish Fujifilm used this feature on every nob, because at times I accidently adjust my exposure. The only downfall with this physical dial system is using it at night, it’s hard to see at times, but with consistent camera usage I think I will be able to overcome this issue……

Can you Really Use Manual Lenses on the X Pro 1? |
Matt Widgery

 
One of the most interesting possibilities with mirrorless camerams is their ability to use almost any classic vintage manual lenses from 135 film cameras, thanks to the small flange distance between the back of the lens and the sensor. With a range of cheap (and some not so cheap) adapters readily available and plenty of old glass for sale in your local camera shop and online, why not experiment and see what you get?….

Review of the Fujifilm X100T in Hong Kong | Bigheadtaco

The X100T is a great travel camera for those who wish to travel light and reasonably compact. With an APS-C size sensor and a unique hybrid viewfinder, this camera can capture some serious pictures. Instead of talking about it as a travel camera, I actually took it with me on vacation to Hong Kong. How good is this camera? It’s awesome. Check out my first quick video review here in Hong Kong, and I’ll have more videos and updates to my blog to follow…..

Comparing the XF50-140mm F2.8 to the XF56mm F1.2 |
RANDALL CIPRIANO

I’ve been lucky enough to have tried a few pre-production samples of the XF50-140mm back in October and saw first hand how sharp it was comparing it with both XF56mm F1.2 R original and APD versions as well as with another brand’s top gun of the same class. But due to the pre-production status of the lens, as always, we had to reserve our final impressions until the production models come out which is what I have with me right now. We were supposed to field test the lens this coming week at the Fujifilm Trek to Mt. Pulag. Unfortunately, due to the apparent threat of Typhoon Hagupit, we had to postpone the trip to next month. So I settled with taking some mixed scenes to compare the XF50-140 and XF56. I tried to match the focus area and the focal length of the XF50-140 to 56mm but the camera doesn’t report the actual focal length of zooms as accurately as I would have liked. Focal length and focus area variance aside, it’s interesting to see how similar in sharpness both lenses are even at F2.8 which is wide open for the XF50-140 and stopped down for the XF56mm which should have given it the advantage. The XF56 is also a prime lens which in most cases have been attributed to have better image quality than zooms. Yes, a totally unscientific test, but you get the point…….

7 Points About the XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR | Olaf Sztaba

After shooting extensively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8, we would like to share a few points about this lens with you:

  1. Micro-Contrast: Superb and on a par with our beloved XF 56mm F1.2
  2. Optics: Bitingly sharp, to our eye, a notch better than Canon or Nikon equivalents
  3. Image Stabilization (OIS): 5-stops – YES, it works, we love it and use it, all the time
  4. Bokeh (out of focus area): Nice for the size of the sensor but we strongly prefer XF 56mm F1.2 in this regard
  5. Construction: All metal, looks and feels great
  6. Size: BIG and heavy – it is NOT a travel lens
  7. Price: Fair for what you are getting

That’s all for now. Here is our mini-session with Nicole shot exclusively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 attached to the Fuji XT-1…..

The New Standard: 56mm | Steven S. Miric

I am a wide angle guy. Period. My favorite FOV is more wide than narrow. When I’m picking up a camera, wider lens is always priority. But… When I decide to go longer it is usually normal lens or standard portrait lens. So what is the exact focal length “number”, someone might ask? It all get confusing when you start hopping from full frame to APS-c and back. But, I won’t elaborate or explain about it here. This is just another hymn to great lens that Fujifilm made: 56mm/1.2. My Fuji X kit started recently, see my initial story here. And all of the lenses I got were primes, with the longest lens as 35mm. Than, I felt a need for a portrait focal length and being budget conscious decided to go for Kijiji based great deal on 60mm. I got that one. Like NIB. Great optical quality. Great files. Great for MACRO. I used this lens few times, but I was left wanting more.Too slow focusing. Too much hunting when focusing. And the biggest “issue” was that I was missing that stop and a change from 2.4 to 1.4 when I was pairing it up with my other Fuji primes (35 and 23) that I use for shoots like this one displayed bellow. Why having fast (and good) lenses and not shoot wide open when you need/want? Shooting with two xpro1 bodies on a assignment and going back and forth between two, if one body is a stop “slower” than the other, something had to be done……

Fujifilm X100T | K-pture

Il y a parfois des rendez-vous ratés, des histoires d’amour avortées. Telle est mon histoire avec la série des Fuji X100/S/T. J’ai adoré le Fujifilm X100 originel ; au premier regard, j’étais conquis. Malheureusement, la relation a été de courte durée. L’appareil était très charmant, plein de promesses, mais bourré de défauts. La rupture a été douloureuse, mais rapide. Son successeur, le Fujifilm X100S a eu le même effet sur moi, mais j’étais plus méfiant. Fuji avait écouté les utilisateurs du X100 et amélioré de nombreux points, y compris l’autofocus et la réactivité générale. Mais ce n’était pas encore « ça ». Je l’ai emmené avec moi sur quelques reportages, en second voire troisième boîtier, mais il n’est pas parvenu à me convaincre (pour une utilisation professionnelle.) L’autofocus était bien meilleur, mais il avait encore des défauts et surtout l’ergonomie était loin d’être parfaite ; mention spéciale à la roulette directionnelle imprécise et pratiquement inutilisable. Je me suis plutôt dirigé vers les X-E2 et X-T1. Quoi qu’il en soit, le X100S était et reste un excellent appareil……..

HO! HO! HO! with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR |
Olaf Sztaba

When a package from Fujifilm Canada with the XF 50-140 OIS lens arrived on my doorstep, I got unusually excited. I couldn’t wait to start shooting. How strange, I thought. After all, I have never been a fan of zoom lenses; I mostly shoot with primes and the line of XF prime glasses fills my camera bag leaving no space for zooms. But somehow, this new, large, heavy lens had captured my attention since the first day it was announced. There are three main reasons: First, we have said many times on this blog that the right way for any company to build a photographic system from the ground up is to start with quality lenses. Amateur photographers usually get excited about cameras while lenses tickle the professionals (in the end, great glass will attract pros and ultimately sell cameras). In fact, the prime reason we started shooting Fuji X-series exclusively was the superb quality of the XF lenses. The XF 14mm F2.8, XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 56mm F1.2 are in our bag and they are some of the best lenses we have ever used. Therefore, XF 50-140 F2.8 OIS WR – the first really professional zoom from Fuji immediately had us on alert……
