New cameras - Leica Q & Lumix GX8

Today, 11:57 AM

Full frame (135mm equivalent for pickies) seems to became within 2-3 years dominant.
The GX7 looks like a body acceptance test run for a fulframe camera.
Sony with the APC-C top of the line camera is on competitor observation and most
probably we will see shortly the last generation, as Sony declared to concentrate on FF.

The question is what will do Fuji, as their decision on the Xmount diameter is very recent.
They will continue to declare that FF is not necessary or will bite the bullet and accept
that the world is spinning in the oposite direction to that decided by the top management
in Japan?

My kit for the next 3 years

Today, 11:21 AM

Posted by sloppyjoe123 in X-Pro1

Hi, I am going to university in UK for the next 3 years, (I am from Singapore). I am a semi-pro photographer, doing odd assignments here and there, but my passion has mainly been travel and street photography. My kit started off with a X100 (I bought one in 2011 as my first ever camera) and L.O.V.E.D it and am still using it now.  Just love how the OVF works. Maybe having no experience with any other camera makes me love it more since I don't have anything to compare its AF to haha. Then moved to an X-E1, sold that and moved to an X-T1 & Sony A7. Didnt like the A7 at all, but adored the X-T1. 

 

So, I am flying off for a few years in UK soon and I would like a kit that will be great for trips around Europe which I am SO psyched for.

 

Right now, my kit stands as such X100 (never letting it go), X-T1 w/ XF23 (love the 35mm focal length) & XF35. I have a XF56 coming my way, so I figured I just need a wide angle to finish my kit off.

 

I am thinking of getting either an X-Pro1 or a X-E2 with a XF18 since both are so cheap on the 2nd hand market over here and a 2nd body would be extra insurance. But can't make up my mind which one to get. Does the OVF work well with the XF18? And do you think it will be worth the sacrifice of Wifi & faster AF considering I LOVE using the X100 OVF?

 

I need some opinions :)

Bell & Howell 16mm f/1.4 "Super Proval D" Projector Lens

Today, 09:55 AM

After reading Wm. A's thread about his B&H Projector lens, http://www.fujix-for...r-lens-for-399/, I hurriedly purchased a "similar" lens on eBay. The one I got was an f/1.2 model, but it seems to have a different optical formula, so it won't focus further than about 6 feet. I've had a lot of fun with it, http://www.fujix-for...projector-lens/, but I'm a bit frustrated with the short focal distance.

 

I found a brand-new-in-the-original-box B&H "Super Proval D" f/1.4 version (same as Wm. A's lens) on eBay for $10 and jumped on it. It is a completely different beast compared to the 1.2. I can now focus close up as well as far away, and it seems to be a bit sharper in the (very) small area of focus. Slightly better OOF rendering as well - the f/1.2 tends to smear highlights.

 

So I took the f/1.4 lens out for a maiden voyage yesterday in my neighborhood of DUMBO (Brooklyn) and Brooklyn Bridge Park. I have fitted a soft rubber lens hood at BOTH ends. The rear one acts as a seal against stray light and dust, while still allowing me to "freelens". (The lens is not physically mounted on the camera.) The front acts as a traditional hood. I also taped a +8 ND filter onto the lens because it has no aperture control. It is quite the "Frankenlens", and I am enjoying the weird looks from people when I am shooting with it!

 

Using the lens is so much fun. It's completely de-coupled from the camera, so you can move it around on every axis, and even tilt/shift until you get an image you like. Similar to a LensBaby, but I think the results with the B&H are better - or at least more interesting.

 

Here are a few taken with an X-A1. They are processed in LR with basically the same workflow as my "regular" photos but, to my eye, they have a "richer" feel to them, as well as a very "3D" look. Also note that this lens is roughly equivalent to a 50mm lens. (@75mm equivalent on the X-A1)

XF 16mm Owners - Two Questions for You

Today, 06:44 AM

I am considering buying the 16mm and have a couple of questions for you owners out there:

 

1) What do you like most about the lens (can be more than one reason)

 

2) What do you like least about the lens (also can be more than one reason)

 

I haven't seen a lot of user feedback on the lens and so I thought that I would toss these questions out to you. Most of the reviews out there are either un-boxing videos or from someone who only has it so that they can give their opinion on it. I would rather hear from actual owners that have actually used the lens in real life situations.

 

Thanks in advance!

Warranty Repairs

Today, 05:45 AM

Posted by PJ5 in X-T1 and X-T10

Does anyone have any experience of how long it takes Fuji to do repairs under warranty?  I bought an X-T1 last autumn and have had intermittent problems with the kit 18-55 lens.  When changed to manual aperture it keeps locking up allowing only changes of one stop.  I sent it back to the people I bought it from who have been very helpful but Fuji have had it for nearly a month now with no word, even though the retailers have confirmed it is faulty.  The lens has had no rough treatment and I am feeling very hard done by.  If they couldn't repair it straight away I would have thought it should have been replaced.  A lens like this shouldn't go wrong in the first ten years of its life, let alone the first ten months.  Does anyone have any experience of Fuji's warranty repairs or know anyone I can speak to at Fuji to get some answers.  Has anyone experienced similar problems with Fuji lenses?  I'm really disappointed.  I don't have any other lenses for the camera.

Fujinon XF 90 mm f/2 vs Samyang/Rokinon 85mm f/1.4

Today, 03:38 AM

Hi all,

 

does anyone have both lenses to compare?

which do you like best?

 

I'm very keen on getting an XF but the price difference is bothering me especially for f/2

 

I don't mind manual focusing

 

and I like f/1.4 on Samyang it's an advantage when a lens does not have OIS

even if it's harder to focus...

 

I can afford the 90mm version, but need to decide if the price does worth it..

 

could someone show any samples taken from both lenses at same location?

 

thanks all in advance

Culprit

Today, 02:53 AM

I filled this feeder last thing Friday night - I wondered why it was diminishing so quickly.

 

Taken at 1/500 (they're quick, nervous little buggers) f6.7 iso1000 at approx 200mm on my 50-230. It's about a 50% crop of the original image. Taken from approx 9-10 metres. This is the jpeg with little PP done apart from sharpening for the web.

Considering you can buy this lens new on eBay for £189 it's very good value for money.

Damn I love my X-Pro1

Today, 02:35 AM

Posted by joshinthecity in X-Pro1

Just shot this of my boy a few minutes ago.

Other cameras could have done the same probably.

But I'm glad I had my Pro-1.

I heard the "ka-thunk", and I knew I had it..

 

That's all I have to say really...
