  1. Article on modifying aperture ring of Pergear 35mm F1.2 to introduce click-stops.
  2. Few pictures from Pergear 35mm F1.2 with Fujifilm X-E2s:
  3. Recently started to explore Pergear 35mm F1.2 lens on Fuji X. It's quite an interesting glass, and I'm going to discover more details about the internals soon by disassembling it. For now here's the initial review article of Pergear 35mm F1.2 on Fuji X-E2s camera. I'll keep updating it with more pictures and discoveries.
  4. Had the same problem, and settings already had Command Aperture, but I forgot to rotate ISO dial to 'C'.
  5. Yes it's normal, by design many Fuji lens have floating optics inside controlled by electromagnets, nothing to worry about.
  6. Awesome! : ) Glad you managed to go further with disassembly. Great effort! Thanks for sharing your results.
  7. You may want to check these articles and also direct CV 35mm F2 vs XF 35mm F1.4 comparison and make your opinion based on pictures. I used to shoot with color-skopar 35mm F2.5 as well, it's awesome tiny lens and its performance is very close to CV 35mm F2. 35mm lens comparison CV 35mm F2 on Fuji X-E2s CV 40mm F1.2 on Fuji X-E2s
  8. It sounds like correct behavior of Fuji X camera. I'd recommend to check your AF-mode switch at the front of camera. If it's set to "S" or "C" then in manual F/SS/ISO you will see DOF changes. But if AF-mode is set to "M" then in manual F/SS/ISO mode you will only see exposure changes, but aperture remains wide open showing same DOF.
  9. If you share some pictures, it may be easier to see what is wrong with lens. I'd also recommend to check if you have latest firmware updated on: camera, lens, TC.
  10. It's normal behavior of many Fuji XF lens, I also noticed it on XF 56mm F1.2, 23mm F1.4. Looks like it's related mostly to camera firmware controlling the lens.
  11. Unless you are printing 100% size there is a simple solution - to shoot with 16mm lens and just crop to desired 18mm. The resulting image will hav emuch better level of border details comparing to XF 18mm F2. And you have flexibility of shifting frame a bit. I also prefer 18mm of X70 more than XF 16mm on X bodies, but only due to more compact size.
  12. I'm using custom neck/wrist straps that are connecyed with durable ring. https://yukosteel.wordpress.com/2019/07/27/diy-leather-camera-strap/ It's easy to add small carabiner to the ring to quickly secure it in the pocket.
