    image sharpness

    Hi Ruta, I've checked the RAF in Capture One and you can see it shows the focus plain of the image painted in green. So, as Jerryy pointed out it's a very thin DOF that makes the most part of the image unsharp. Besides even shooting at F11 or F16 from this perspective you hardly get all-in-focus image. I agree that focus bracketing or focus stacking is the only way to go here. What about your lens it's perfectly fine. I upload processed file and as you might find the area which is in focus is tuck sharp. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MuOChe5snmYV_Fqv13qeMqmN_LeRg5iD/view?usp=sharing

    It is ok and I like it, just need a touch of PP. Just a little bit.

    Hi Jerryy! How is it going! The lens in 16-80. I load jpg in Capture One and see that sharpness slider set to zero. It could be due the camera setup. When you switch the sharpness off images might looks realy soft. I adjusted it as it should be and it helps a bit Ruta, if you have RAF file as well post it here. C1 can show where the real focus point in the image is.
  5. You know if Nikon would make FF retro controlled camera and add some lenses with aperture ring I'd go for it... but they are "diversifying their portfolio" instead. What a pity. 😕
  6. But how this Nikon camera is linked to all this aps-c - FF - MF story?
  7. looks like a tunnel syndrome...
  8. It looks like a faulty lens as it should behave exactly like your 16-80mm. I'd try to check this lens on some other Fuji body if possible.
  9. Hi George! Don't worry I'm fine I'd say yes, I prefer rangefinder-style though I'm not completely against SLR-style either as I'm old Minolta user and have two SLRs: X-500 and XDs. I think I'd bought X-T4 already if it has X-T3 screen or X-Pro3 even with fixed LCD.
  10. Thanks Fuji for this opportunity. They don't want me buying their stuff. New toy camera (X-E4) is a cherry on the cake of nonsense.
  11. What I surprised by is that there are no modern camera system I want to buy since I've got my X-E2. I'm not talking about Leica it's not my budget, but every rangefinder-style camera by Fuji or Sony are crippled that way it stops me from buying it. Canon and Nikon are not in this game at all. And you're ranting about some wide angle lens... ))) About the lens... I think they're making bokeh lens for portraits not for street when you usually need plenty of DOF to tell your story and in case of low light you should utilize IBIS this days rather then speed of the glass. So, maybe Fuji xf 16f1.4 is the one.
  12. What do you mean Fuji? Cameras of all manufacturers work the same way in manual mode.
