Fuji XF60mm f/2.4 R Macro: A Lens Re-visited | Dave Young

With the release of the X-pro1, Fuji released 3 prime lenses for their interchangeable lens system cameras, the 18mm, 35mm and 60mm.

With a 35mm focal equivalent view of 90mm, Fuji’s 60mm lens was the ideal portrait lens, together with having the ability to be useful as a macro lens offering a 2:1 ratio for macro use. It’s ability to shoot sharp is well known with many top Fuji professionals once favouring it as their go to lens, however it’s ability to focus fast in anything other than good light has been questioned and with the release of the razor like 56mm f/1.2, the 60mm is less popular than it once was. Last Christmas, I had an opportunity to try the 60mm for a few days and loved it. OK, so the focussing wasn’t lightning quick, but it was OK and the rendered images made up for it. At the time I’d have bought one there and then given the right incentive. Since then I’ve changed my criteria of shooting and with the XT1, been giving serious consideration to the 56mm. The perfect lens for portraiture work, and super fast with its f/1.2 aperture and its ability to melt away backgrounds. However, a very lightly used 60mm became available at just a third of the cost of a 56mm, and so this seems to work all ways……..

Fujifilm TCL-X100 tele-conversion lens | Phil Hall

For me, the Fujifilm X100S is one of the standout cameras of the past few years. I love the relatively compact size, classic styling, handling and the results it produces thanks to the excellent sensor and 35mm equivalent lens. With the TCL-X100 teleconverter, the focal length is increased to 50mm for times when the lens is a bit too wide. As the TCL-X100 screws directly onto the front of the X100S, there are no electronic connections, while the large front element means the combination is a more bulky affair. However, it still balances nicely in the hand, and while focusing behaves in a similar way when shooting normally, in macro mode it struggled to acquire focus at times. Images look very good, with the X100S applying in-camera corrections to control distortion very well. The good news is that if you’re shooting raw, Adobe Camera Raw 8.4 applies these same corrections, so you’re not restricted to JPEG-only corrected files……..

Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 APD, XF 50-140mm f/2.8 and
Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8 – A portrait gallery | MirrorLessons

A couple of weeks ago, Heather and I spent the day at a special Touch & Try event organised by the great people at the Riflessi Shop in Turin. There we had the chance to have a second look at the new Fujinon lenses announced at Photokina, which we briefly tried at the event. Due to limited time and the restricted location, this article isn’t an actual review of the lenses but a gallery of images taken in a studio environment combined with a few personal thoughts. While testing these different lenses, I came to the realisation of just how perfectly executed the Fujifilm lens road map is. The company has worked extremely hard to create as many tools as possible, not only for amateurs and enthusiasts but also professional photographers. One of the best ways to do this is to concentrate not only on the cameras but also the lenses. If we count 2015, in three years Fujifilm will have manufactured all the lenses users need for 99% of situations and just as with the X series cameras, the quality of these lenses is extremely high. From the first well chosen trio of focal lengths (a wide angle, standard and macro/portrait lens) to the latest addition, Fuji engineers have never seemed to veer away from the path. Thanks to the latest releases, the options for portrait photographers are now expanding, and with the lenses coming out next year, they will soon have everything they need to work…….

Fuji 10-24 mm f4 lens | Mike Croshaw

I got hold of this lens recently and have been having a play.  I’m not a landscape photographer really but I still wanted this lens for weddings and to dabble a bit with landscape.  I also think its a pretty useful range to carry around with you, despite the relatively large size of the lens.  At the long end its a 36mm equivalent focal length and can be used to shoot people, and at the wide end, it can turn the ordinary into something a bit special because of the crazy wide angle.  Anyway, here are some shots, so far I love the lens and its a keeper for me……

Switching to Mirrorless: Embracing Fujifilm X  | Daniel Korzeniewski

I am just back from a three-week trip from Vietnam and Bhutan, and although I’ve traveled with only Fuji X cameras in the past, this was the first time I totally relied on them for a long journey. Tired of carrying gear when traveling I was on the lookout for a compact camera that could travel well. I was happy to carry my Nikons on trips, but there were instances when I didn’t want to go out with them. There were particular places in big cities that were unsafe, or when just going out for dinner after a day of shooting on a remote location, being exhausted, I didn’t want to be out again carrying equipment. I was basically going on photo trips yet leaving the camera in my hotel room at times. I tried a couple of point-and-shoot cameras that I could have with me at all times, but I was not happy with the results. Looking for better options, I started to do some research on micro 4/3 and mirrorless cameras, and that’s when I came across the Fuji X system and decided to give it a try…..

Leica M-P (Typ 240) | PCMag

The Leica M-P (Typ 240) is a premium version of the company’s M (Typ 240) rangefinder camera with a few cosmetic changes, a more durable rear LCD, and a larger buffer for longer continuous shooting. It’s the same camera from a handling and image-quality perspective, so refer to our review of the M to find out more about the camera. The original M is clearly a better value, and its higher rating stands up even after some time on the market. There are other full-frame mirrorless cameras now that can use M lenses via an adapter, although only Leica makes models with an optical viewfinder. One of those, the Sony a7R $2,098.00 at Amazon, is our current favorite in this category, but if you have Leica lenses, you’ll still get the best image quality by shooting with a Leica camera……

Fuji XF50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR | Part I | Leigh Miller

I’ve had a sample of the Fujifilm XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens for a few days now but unfortunately our Toronto weather hasn’t been playing ball. Not that I want to be complaining too much though, my cousin in Buffalo tells me that they had to shovel her roof on at least two occasions over the past week.  With this new lens Fuji now has a telephoto zoom to suit the three price ranges, Professional, Enthusiast and Hobbyist. Though those strict distinctions are a bit more blurry these days. My first foray into Fuji zooms came in the form of the Fujinon XF 55-200mm f:3.5-4.8 R LM OIS which I took with me to Belize this past year. With an effective focal range of 82-300mm (in 35mm DSLR terms) it put me right in the outer rim of a very handy wildlife/nature lens. I say outer rim because a true wildlife lens begins somewhere from 300mm into the 600mm range. Wild animals don’t like us very much except the ones that wouldn’t mind adding the occasional human being to their dinner menu…..

Fuji XT1: A Revelation Indeed | Dave Young

So after much huffing and puffing and having bought and sold a Fuji X100s, which I thought was the camera I really should have, I jumped in and bought Fuji’s flagship model, the XT1 a couple of weeks ago. It seems the next appropriate step evolution wise to compliment my X-Pro1, albeit its modern looks don’t sit quite as easy on the eye as the X-Pro1 does. However, it’s fair to say the XT-1 is a little dream machine. It just about answers everything you could ask regarding the X-Pro1 and its own inadequacies. AF speed is much improved over the XPro-1, the EVF is amazingly good (who needs an OVF) – bright, crisp, big, with a super-fast refresh rate and the tactile nature Fuji have with found with their X range remains. The controls for ISO and shutter speed have been moved from a menu option to sit alongside the exposure compensation dial on the top plate, together with the option of metering and frame rate being available through a small slide control under the dials. These changes make for the simple option of moving out of auto mode and into manual, indeed it almost begs you to do so such is the ease in being able to control those settings……..

Tick Tack Sharp – FujiFilm XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR –
Reviewed | Sven Schroeter

It’s officially here, and the 70-200mm F2.8 equivalent focal length lens from Fujifilm is ready to rock the boat. All adventure, portrait and sport photographers have been eagerly awaiting this one, and we managed to get our grubby little hands on one early to figure out how it handles. Canon and Nikon have been producing the leading lens designs in this focal length for years and it is probably fair to say that every professional photographer has one of their own. We have never been the biggest fans of the zoom lens and have mostly kept our distance from the current Fujifilm zoom lens lineup. But the versatility of a high performance telephoto option from the underdog was too exciting to overlook and pass up. If first impressions are anything to go by, this lens is stiff competition for any prime lenses which fall in its wake. The first thing you notice when grabbing for the lens is its weight, it is not light by any definition of the word…….

Fujifilm X100T review | TrustedReviews

Should I buy the Fujifilm X100T?

The Fujifilm X100T will make you want to pick up a camera more often, especially for the serious enthusiasts among you who aren’t afraid to deep-dive into full manual shooting. This has been true of the previous X100 cameras, of course, but now the series has brushed off its irksome and dated elements to offer one of the most compelling cameras of the year. Yes, the focusing speed won’t make your jaw drop and the lens is still entirely fixed. However, the photo quality on offer can take on high-end DSLRs, without all the inconvenience of a shooting setup that could fill a rucksack. Some of you may be better off with the slightly easier-going style of the Panasonic Lumix LX100, but we’re really scraping around for reasons not to go for the X100T. It’s not an easy task.

Verdict

Similar to the X100S? Sure, but the Fujifilm X100T clears up some of its issues and is a camera to make you fall in love with photography all over again.
