  1. Who here is crazy enough to think that the X100V is the best digital camera ever? I've had it for a year now, in parallel with the X-Pro3/X-T4 and also the GFX system... and of course it can't replace system cameras especially for certain work... but in terms of concept and maturity I think it's just incredible... I don't really have anything to add to my thoughts even after a year. https://peterpoete.de/review-x100v-english/
  2. Thanks… Sounds more like a general decision between Canon and Fujifilm… why do you want to change systems? The F2 ist kind of special, I think it‘s not for everyone. Optically it‘s not for pixel peepers or for some special tasks where resolution is key. Mechanically, it‘s crazy as well by today‘s standards… no internal and loud AF, aperture blades are chattering, aperture ring not as good build as with other fujifilm lenses, … I love it anyway, just saying. If you want to go discrete: XF27 F2.8 MKII, XF23 F2 and XF16 F2.8 are extremely versatile, very small, fast AF, weather resistant, … or you could go with a X100V with WCL-X100 adapter… the X100V is in my view the best digital camera ever :-)
  3. Hi KrisAK, first of all, it‘s not „he“, it‘s me 🙂 My fault, I should have written „my thoughts“… it‘s my blog… And yes, of course the vignetting is made in post, that‘s very often my style. So I don‘t care about vignetting, but both are OK in this respect - the f/1.4 even better I think. Coming to the size: Puh, yeah, it‘s OK… but as I wrote, I would like it to be a bit smaller. All in all, though, it's still OK, as it's also quite slim and light. Should you prefer it to the F2 version? This is the hardest question of all. As a landscape photographer probably yes, otherwise it depends on how much you need/want that kind of perfection. It's damn good without question, but I'm still not selling the F2 either... maybe that answers the question best. Cheers, Peter
  4. For those still on the fence, here are a few thoughts on the new Fujinon XF18 F1.4... https://peterpoete.de/xf18-1_4-review/

  7. I have recently bought the GF30. Although it's not really small, at least it's relatively light and otherwise absolutely fantastic... but I'm still working on my review of it... https://peterpoete.de/blog/
  8. Hi, I am going with the triple 30/50/80... with the GFX50S I have experiences with the 45, 63 and the two zooms 32-64 and 45-100... Some first reviews on the lenses: https://peterpoete.de/gf50-review/ https://peterpoete.de/gf3264-review/ ... and I am working the the reviews on the 30mm and the 80mm... Regards, Peter
  9. Hi there, for those who are interessted, some (first) thoughts from my side on the GFX100S... https://peterpoete.de/fujifilm-gfx100s-first_impression-english/
  10. I also have the GFX 50S... but I didn't make full use of it. I still deliberate whether it would be different with a GFX 50R... but it's maybe only GAS.
  11. Thanks, Paul! I think your plan is good... the camera is great, but it should fit someone. I just sent mine to service to check out this OVF thing. If it's my eyes, okay, so it is. But I'm still not completely convinced... Peter

  14. For those, who are interested... here my as honest as possible review of the X-Pro3. https://peterpoete.de/fujifilm-xpro3-review-english/ I'm curious to hear your opinions, even if they're contrary to mine. 🙂 Peter
