  1. Hi everyone, This is my first post here. I'm in doubt about selecting the right lens, so I calling for your help. This is my situation: What I usually shoot: - Travel - Family (two children) - Street and daily life - Portrait (not often) - No video Most of the time I shoot with hand held and no flash, so I think OIS is a big benefit. I also prefer fast AF, so manual focus lens is out of sort list. Of course f/1.4 is ideal for hand held but I can live with f/2, no big deal. The most important factor is fast and lightweight. I only print pictures in small size, so image quality and sharpness is not critical. However I don’t use Photoshop so I prefer no retouching, just use the JPG images right out of camera, maybe just crop/rotate if need. I also can live with noise of high ISO. Currently I use a XE3 with 23mm f/2 and super happy with this combo. Thinking about add one or two lenses because sometime I see 23mm is not wide enough (small room, group picture, or on a mountain that I can't step back), sometime it is too wide (family portrait, children playing around). So I see two options: Option 1 - zoom lens, buy one of these - 18-55 f/2.8-4: A lot of recommendation on this lens. It's cheap and has OIS. I just wonder if 18 is wide enough? - Waiting for 16-80 f/4: has OIS, fast AF (hopefully), 80mm for portrait is better than 55mm. Internal zoom and WR also very nice for long term investment. - 16-55 f/2.8: this one is expensive and way too big to go with XE3, and no OIS. - 18-135 f/3.5-5.6: Slow aperture, and 135mm is too long for me. I'd rather have 16mm. Also many negative review about this lens. Option 2 - buy two prime lens - 16 f/2.8 and 50 f/2: Fast AF, fast aperture, lightweight, optical excellence and WR. Super match with 23 f/2. But no OIS and cost a bit more money. Would you please share your experience? What do you recommend? Thank you very much! JK.
  2. I cant decide between the 10-24 and the 16 mm 1.4 fuji lens. I have the xt-1 and x-70. As well as the 35m1.4 and 18mm f2 . I would really like a zoom but I also really want the wide low light capabilities of the 16. I do a wide variety of shooting now. Landscape, Street, Portrait, but i also want to get into more night shooting of downtown los angeles and the urban architecture and life and low light shooting. So i am pretty torn on which to go for. I am fairly new to photography and some people have told me that the 10-24 is really go in low light because of ois but I have no idea. I need to decide sometime today. Thanks for your help guys.
  3. I recently visited Nothumberland in the North East of the United Kingdom. The Northumberland Coast is beautiful and I have started to pull together some brief blog posts with some of the images from the trip as well as brief guides to locations. http://www.mostly.photos/blog/2017/9/30/fuji-x-t2-northumberland-coast
  4. Recently I have been to the Volvo museum in Goteborg and took a few pictures. This is by no means a complete tour around the museum, but a part of it. The first half I enjoyed just for my self, and the second part I shared with my camera . All pictures were taken with the 35/1.4 or 16/1.4 - love them . Any comment is appreciated.
  5. I recently had the opportunity to visit a remote South facing beach in Wales, UK - I thought I'd try and capture the Milky Way with my X-T2 and 16mm f1.4 I wrote a brief article with further images and information on how I took the shot
  6. Hi all, i need help. I want to cover my wide, and i'm torn between these 2 lenses (tough dec). To be honest, i'm leaning towards 16mm, then i'll use my legs as my "zoom" what do you think? Which one should i get and why? Thanks.
  7. Hi everyone! Long-time Fuji X shooter here who's new to the forums. I'm a fashion photographer based in NYC, and I figured I'd start a thread for any fashion shooters on these boards. I plan on posting a mix of personal work commissioned work, with a bit of a description of the shoots. I'll avoid going too far into my back catalogue and start with images from the past two weeks or so. Hoping to see the works of others on here as well! First set: I styled and shot these with my good friend (and muse through the years) Melina. We only had an 40 minutes or so to shoot, so I wish we had time for a few other looks, but there's always next timte. X-Pro2, 56mm, 35mm f/1.4, 16mm f/1.4. Natural light, no modifiers. The rest of the series is NSFW, and I'm not sure of this forums policies on nudity, so I'll refrain from posting.
  8. I've had my XE-1 for about a year now and love the camera - it's really gotten me into photography. I started out with the 18-55 kit lens, then added the 35mm 1.4 a few months later. While the kit lens is great, I LOVE the way pictures turn out from the 35mm. I think partially its the prime forcing me to better compose my shot, but also there's something special about this lens. I'd like to expand my kit, but am having trouble deciding which way to go. My initial thought was to go with the 14mm, because of the small size and the ability to increase my focal length range into wide angle. I like taking architectural and landscape shots on vacations, and have felt limited sometimes by the 18mm on the kit. I also really like shooting at night though, and the extra stops on the 35mm have been helpful for a non-stabilized lens - so enter the 16mm. The more reviews I read about the 16mm, it seems like a really amazing lens. I'd get the extra focal length, but could potentially use it for more situations. Both to shoot street at night and to shoot people indoors, without the fear of distortion that I might get with the 14mm. On the other hand, when I look at what I use generally walking around when not on vacation, I tend to shoot at either 23mm or 35mm on the zoom. Which leads me to wonder if getting the 23mm or a used X100s might make most sense. It would provide more enjoyment when I'm not traveling, but wouldn't necessarily expand my range of available focal lengths. Sorry for the rambling post - at the end of the day, I think the ranking of characteristics are 1) lens I love using - the 35mm has a really special quality and 2) expand my focal length range. Appreciate everyone's thoughts and experiences! Here's a link to give an idea of what I like to shoot: 500px.com/wdshuck
  9. Just putting this out there so I don't feel so alone. Anyone else find the aperture ring on the 16mm f/1.4 way too loose for practicality? Half the time when I go to take my first shot I miss it because the lens got accidentally moved to f/16 and I need to push it back to "A". Makes me want to just leave it on f/1.4 all the time so at least when it moves it doesn't make my shot impossible, but that's not a good solution either. The same thing happens on my 35mm f/1.4, but somehow not nearly as often, maybe it's just because the 16mm is so big that the ring brushes up on more stuff, but it's starting to drive me crazy. I've been fantasizing about putting a rubber band on it just to slow things down, but then it would be hard to see what aperture it was at. I wish that if nothing else the "A" position on Fuji lenses was a harder click then the rest so I could depend on it. Switching to f/16 when I'm expecting an auto-exposure of f/1.4 is a real drag.
  10. Hello! This is my first post here. I'm an enthusiast and recently got an X-T1 Graphite and the 35mm/1.4 lens, which I absolutely adore so far. While I love the 35 for everyday shooting (mostly street, casual, environmental portraits, etc), I just took a trip out west to Oregon to go camping and found myself a bit limited by the FOV for nature/landscape/astrophotography and often had to shoot vertically to compensate. While I was able to take some nice shots (see below), I realized I would like to complement my 35 with something wider to give me more range— I've narrowed it down to the following options: 14mm 2.8, 16mm 1.4, and the 10-24mm f/4. I guess what I'm looking for is image quality and character, and versatility/practicality. Size and weight are a consideration, but I tried the 10-24 and 16mm in person and neither felt too crazy heavy or unbalanced with my X-T1. Budget isn't really an issue either. I'm leaning towards the 16mm (due to reviews I've seen, the sharpness, 1.4, and the weather sealing) or the 10-24 (due to the versatility and the fact it hits a lot of great FOV's, image quality, and IS). What would you recommend? Thanks! Trevor
  11. Hi, I get bored easily during daytime on vacation, as the light for taking pictures isn`t really good. This is different if you have an IR-converted camera in your bag, which is ideal to use in bright light. I use a converted X-Pro1 (620nm) which allows bw- as well as false color pictures. I have adjusted in-camera settings to produce bw-JPGs: B(y), H Ton +2, S Tone +2, Sharp -1 with no or only litte tweaking in Lightroom afterwards. For false color I use RAW-files which I adjust in Lightroom. You need a red/blue swap plugin, though. Here are some pictures taken with different lenses in beautiful Cadiz and Sevilla. If you want to see more IR-pictures you can find them in my Flickr account here or here. The following 3 shots were taken with the excellent Zeiss Touit 12mm: Cadiz by Cruiser223, on Flickr Sevilla by Cruiser223, on Flickr Sevilla by Cruiser223, on Flickr
