  1. I have this lens (XF mount version) for about 4 month, and like how it performs on Fuji X-E2s. The only thing I was missing - is click-stop aperture. Today I've finally made that mod : ) It's quite simple if you have proper tools and repair skills, so including related article to use: Click-stop aperture for 7artisans 35mm F1.2 lens
  2. Could owners of the 35 f/2 please confirm whether this is normal or just a fault this guy had on a batch of lenses, please? I was going to buy this lens for fast, quiet AF and quieter smoother MF in video, so the above would obviously make it unusable for focus pulls for the latter use, it’s not so much the noise (although that’s not great on one of the new ‘silent’ lenses), but the very visible, horrid visual judder as focus is pulled...
  3. Once the 7artisans 35mm F1.2 got announced on Fujirumors I started watching their lens and exploring more details online waiting for release. The sales started on December 28 2017, but I didn't find any good review of this lens, so decided to purchase and try it myself. This noon I've received free sample directly from 7artisans factory which they generously gifted as a result of our recent cooperation ( thank you 7artisans Team! ) I'll break this review into few parts to fit more images into this review. You can also directly read extended review version. Unboxing 7artisans 35mm F1.2 lens - Part I The parcel arrived fully wrapped in white film with 7artisans logo. Inside I've found carefully bubble-film packed lens black box that looks cool. The box is sealed with two factory stickers. You may check for "FX" extra sticker in the top right corner before unpacking to make sure the correct mount is delivered. It's the first lens box I got with QR code, will check it later : ) First interesting thing you will see in the box is the "Salute to shutterby" shiny phrase, warranty card and manual. The lens is wrapped in plastic bag and secured inside high density foam (reminds me about early Fuji XF lens packaging). Lens much smaller than I expected and looks very cute. It comes with metal front cap and plastic rear cap. The glass looks very clean, I didnt notice any visible dust. My sample has SN: A6351608 , and I see SN: A635003 on the 7artisans site, so it seems to be 1608th sample produced. Lens glass is definitely multicoated which I can see form reflections. The focus and aperture rings are rotating very smooth and not too loose.
  4. Here is my short guide on 7artisans 35mm F1.2 lens – partial disassembly I like how it's built, and possibly try to mod it to the click-stop aperture version.
  5. I am at a juncture that I believe many of you are, or have been, at. Every now and again I find myself 'lost in tech' and need to ground my self again to improve my photography and focus on the things that really matter, not f stops, focal lengths, micro-contrast but photography; painting with light. I currently have a handful of fuji lenses, need to sell some and probably need to buy some to achieve something I believe will be better...maybe not. As we all know, but don't always admit to, the most important piece of gear we own is the 12 inches behind the camera. My best photos ever taken were on equipment seriously lacking in 'currentless' So, to get to the crunch.... I want a selection of gear to capture my life events, in decent quality, to help others capture theirs through small photo shoots and to record beautiful places I have experienced. Could be the bar, the theatre, the wonders of the world or my garden.. it's all available. I'll ignore my collection of film camera's for the minute and focus on Fuji X-series, why were here... I have read reviews on all the lenses currently available and have decided on setting out my stage as buying the best I can afford without spending a fortune, I work in a normal job!! I started out with an X100 and used it alongside my Canon 20D, and then 5DII full frame with some nice glass. I have now sold all Canon gear (apart from 430EXII speedlight) and ended up with X-Pro2 and X100T. The X-pro2 is an amazing camera, my excuses diminish shooting with it. I can split the rest of this blurb into 2 sections - my advice and my outstanding queries Anything I say is purely user based. I dont really pixel peep, check for distortion levels and far corner sharpness when I dont look there..I want to see a nice looking capture of a nice thing, end. Some focal lengths are definitely more suitable to the success of what you set out to achieve, nothing more, nothing less. I personally, and it's personal, like to capture, street, scenic, people images with a smattering of wildlife thrown in, so have based my lens selections on it...apart from a couple of them that came my way. The widest I own is the 18mm, a fairly dis-respected lens, I love it, small discreet and nearly all my scenic stuff shot thought it. At f8 with a ND10 filter I have captured some beautiful images, well at least I like them.. I have the 27mm pancake bought as part of the X-pro1 promotion but have only used it for a handful of shots. I think its the lack of aperture ring on this FL that puts me off, a big reason for coming to Fuji was the lovely manual ring....more later on a lens I have bought today that hasn't!! It has a great deal of sharpness but the f2.8 on this FL doesn't give a lot of scope of creating a nice background blur. It is however a great lens for setting at f5.6 or f8, zone focussing and just clicking away. Its quite liberating not thinking about the camera The X100T following on from my X100 confirmed to me the usefulness of the more that useful FOV but I still went ahead and bought the 23mm f2 even though I already had it!! I convinced myself that I could leave my X100 at home and still have the FL when it suited me?? Kinda works as it does give me a smaller 'foot print' The 23 f2 on the X-pro2 is sharper and better contrast than the X100T at f2 but comes with baggage, the X100T is where it's at. Difficult to explain but feels so good. I have an olympus 35SP and a Rollie 35S that yields similar feelings. On the 35mm front I own the f1.4 and the f2, the 1.4 came first on a instinctual ebay purchase one boozy night, I do like it but wanted the f2 so WEX helped me out. The form factor of the f2 is nice on the x-pro and the images are sharp and colourful, strangely almost too much. The 1.4 seems more 'natural', there is a very high chance I will sell the f2 as the subject matter I shoot doesn't demand the faster focus etc I bought the 18-55 second hand, still have it but cant get excited. It allows flexibility and saves me moving my feet, but pics are only recording whats there, difficult to add artistic impression. I might use it for Thailand to record my holiday but will need some nice primes to capture it beautifully. Now onto the the longer focal lengths...this is where it gets difficult for me. I bought the 56mm f1.2 as I needed a fast, short tele for a wedding, what a lens!!! I love it. The rendition whether optically perfect or not, is amazing. Once you get used to the razor thin DOF and the huge aperture/shutter speed selection the images it gathers are outstanding, it's 1.2 so I want to use it at 1.2. It is bulky but coming from a DSLR/Medium format film background it's insignificant. I'll ask a question later on the 50mm f2 I bought the XC 50-230mm today after much research and the reluctance to spend such a lot of money on the 55-200mm for something I only occasionally use. I'm going to Thailand later this year and doing a bit of nature park stuff. Hopefully it will help me yield decent images of creepy crawly, furry, jumpy things. The most fun I have just now with longer FL's is the veritable Nikkor 105 f2.5 and the Zeiss 135mm f3.5. Both the lenses on the X-pro2 are amazing, they take some practice but with the focus peaking and EVF the results can be superb. If fact my favourite butterfly photo was through the Nikkor, the smooth rendition and colour reproduction is to be lusted over. Hopefully the 50-230 wont make me sell them.. Onto my request for help This week I went camping to a beautiful location, The Island of Mull on the west coast of Scotland. I was changing lenses way too often, lovely scenery with the 18 or 23 then the Zeiss 135 for the Golden Eagles. In the towns the pace was pretty slow so I managed to get some lovely shots of Tobermory harbour with the 23mm. I do wish I had the 50mm f2 at times though for detail capture around the town. I want to go prepared for Thailand with the right kit, I felt stressed on Mull getting the right gear together which did impact on my holiday, in Thailand i would like stress free so what do I take? The 18-55/50-230 plus a fast short sounds the best combo, what do you think? I have asked this forum on this before but without my experiences, please excuse me. If you want me to share some pictures captured with the above lenses let me know Please let me know your thoughts Cheers
  6. Hello everybody! I would like to show you some of my first landscape photos with the X-T2 from my trip to Iceland some weeks ago. Before I changed to a mirrorless system camera I had a Canon EOS 6D before. I have to say going back to APS-C was a hard decision for me, I've never had any problems with the image quality of the 6D even Canon build not the best sensors at the moment, but as a travel camera and in some other situations I wasn't that happy anymore with it. I used parallel to it an X100T which I loved, but I needed a system with interchangable lenses. I had so much fun with the little Fuji and read so many positive reviews about the newer X-Trans III sensor that I decided to sell the Canon and all my lenses to buy an X-T2. With my, at the moment, four primes and the great body I had never so much fun before while photographing. Iceland was a great test for the system and I'm looking forward to the next holidays with it. But now enough words and time for some photos of the trip (most with my girlfriend on it) - hope you like it!

  7. How did I not buy this camera earlier? I love the organic output it produces, and paired with the Fuji 35mm f1.4 lens it produces incredible files – jpeg and processed raw files. For me output is the most more important factor in creating an image. The files from this camera and lens combination are sublime, easily edited (both raw and jpeg), and the camera is fun to use. The following images were all shot with the 35mm f1.4 lens which creates sharp images with great contrast. Enjoy. https://flic.kr/p/TCeRBZ https://flic.kr/p/UTjp4T https://flic.kr/p/UPL7ob https://flic.kr/p/UPLadE https://flic.kr/p/TAUreA https://flic.kr/p/UPLqtQ https://flic.kr/p/TAU1ef
  8. 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.
  9. Zhongyi Speedmaster 35mm f0.95 version II released in Feb 2016, so there are almost no reviews online on this new interesting lens I've decided to try it, and ordered one sample directly from Hong Kong, attracted by 9% discounted price. It arrived yesterday, so posting some shots and first impressions. Feel free to ask questions if any. Out of the box (taken with ZSM 35mm on 0.95 + X-E2) Sample on F2.8 Sample on F0.95 Look on X-E2
  10. Disassembly steps (updated): 1. unscrew inner ring with lens marking "1" CCW. Then unscrew 3 silver screws "2". NOTE: green arrow shows scratch on metal frame inside. Actually this is "factory mark" : ) that shows calibrated position of front lens group frame. If you don't have one in your lens just mark with pencil. 2. unscrew long black screw on the aperture ring. Pull out aperture ring. 3. gently pull out front lens group element. 4. Now you have access to aperture, and also can clean dust on glass surfaces if needed. Remove ring that holds top aperture plate.
  11. I wanted to get the 35mm f2 WR, i love the review, but one thing im not sure of, does it build with plastic ? or partially ? would it last me many years to come in photography ?
  12. 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.
  13. So, if we ignore the noise, AF speed and one stop difference of the two lenses, which one is then optically best? I have read numerous tests, blogs and reviews that say the two are both sharp, contrasty and colorful (with the f2.0 being slightly warmer) however I have also encountered quite a few tests that have tried both lenses in Capture One where you can remove the distortion and vignetting correction done by software. And in those reviews it seems like the f2.0 lose, by a large margin, as the f1.4 is optically better corrected. As it is well known, software correction slightly degrades image quality. But will it be an issue? Now, I don't have any of the lenses, so what are your thoughts if you have or have had both lenses. And remember! Disregard noise, AF speed and one stop difference. I am only after the optically best lens :-)
  14. Does anyone have any experience using the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 or Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art on the X-T2, X-T1, or X-Pro2? I am trying to decide if I am going to purchase one of the Fuji 35mm lenses while they are on sale, or if I should hold off and adapt my Nikon mount 35mm lenses. I am interested in your thoughts on IQ, DOF, bokeh comparisons etc. between the two Fuji lenses and the adapted Nikon mount lenses. Also, if you have used these lenses on your Fuji, what adapter you have used.
  15. So I've ordered the Fuji X-T10 along with the Fujinon 60mm 2.4 (to coincide with the X100s and TCL-X100 that I already own) in order to finally start second shooting for local documentary wedding photographers. Obviously, I would love more lenses but money is VERY tight at the moment and this was the absolute max budget I could afford until after the summer. It worked out at £670 overall ($984), including a cashback offer Fuji currently have on bodies in the UK. I would LOVE a 56mm but they are more than double the price of the 60mm. I was torn between the 35mm and 60mm as they were approx the same price, ish, but I decided to go with the 60mm as it is obviously a much different focal length to the X100s. My question is, have I made the right decision? The order has been placed and now buyers remorse has set in! Surely the Fuji X100s (with or without the TCL) would be just too close to the 35mm? Right? Surely the variety of the X100 along with the X-T10 + 60mm give me better options going forward for (documentary) wedding photography? Also, does anyone have any experience with the 60mm on the X-T10? Thanks guys, I appreciate any advice/feedback/experience you have for me.
  16. I wanted to ask this here as most of you are fans of the X100 series. I have an X100T and I like it, but I'd like it more if it had the updated AF of the X-E2 and had a 35mm lens. As I don't shoot with flash, does the leaf shutter really matter? Any other advantages of the X100T? I have an X-Pro2 on preorder and a 35mm f/2. I'm thinking of selling my X100T and using the X-Pro2 with the 35mm. As far as focal lengths, I have them all covered already with my X-T1. Basically I just don't know if it makes sense to hold on to the X100T.
  17. Following 2 pictures are taken at F1.4 on 2 different 35mm lens + X-E2 : Fuji XF 35mm 1.4 Zhongyi 35mm 0.95 II Do you see any difference? Which image looks slightly better? Which SAMPLE is XF35mm ? I'll post the answer soon, just curious if it's easy to say for experienced XF35mm shooters. SAMPLE1 [F1.4] SAMPLE2 [F1.4] Also 100% crops from each shot: SAMPLE1 crop [F1.4] SAMPLE2 crop [F1.4]
  18. 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
  19. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a XE-2 with a 35mm 1.4 and 18-55mm zoom lens. I've noticed the 35mm lens is quite noisy, which is an observation echoed by many others. My concern regards the noise and vibration when manual focusing. I've seen a lot of people referring to the annoying chattering type noise when autofocusing, which seems to have been made better with firmware updates, but not many people discussing noise issues with manual focusing. All my other lenses don't make any noise at all when focusing manually. This lens almost seems like it's making a sort of electronic noise and feels jittery when rotating the focus ring. My 18-55mm kind of makes a similar sound (although no jittery feeling), but it's barley noticeable. I guess I just want to know is this normal?
  20. First batch of street photos I've created since moving over from Nikon. Really enjoying the X-T10 for street and it's an absolute world of difference from running around with a bulky and attention-drawing DSLR. Am also having a ton of fun discovering what the X-Trans sensor looks like, particularly at night with artificial light at high ISO. There's something about the RAW files and what you can do with them, they feel so different. Photos below were taken in Newport, Wales - Montreal, Canada - Vienna, Austria - and Toronto, Canada with the X-T10 and either the XF 23mm f1.4 or XF 35mm f2.0.
  21. I was originally considering getting the Fuji 27mm (mostly for its compact size), but after playing around with my 18–135 at both 27mm and 35mm, I found that I preferred the 35mm focal length. Now, I'm not sure which would be a better purchase; the 32mm F1.8 Zeiss, or the 35mm F2 Fuji. The price difference is $100 and the pro to the fuji is the WR, while the pro of the Zeiss is that its faster. Another Fuji pro is that they will improve the lens performance via firmware. What do you guys think?
  22. Hi guys. Can U tell how good in fact is this lens? Is it worth the money? If it not depends on focal lenght, the xf23 is really this better, with the price almost twice as high?
  23. Why does the 35 f2 not say WR? http://www.fujirumors.com/xf-100-400-aperture-range-now-from-4-5-to-5-6-poll-better-slower-smaller-or-bigger-faster/ Is it not supposed to be?
  24. According to the Road map the 35mm f2.0 WR was supposed to be listed after the 16mm but before the 90mm. The (0mm is being announced next monday so what about the new 35mm ????
