  1. 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

  7. Hi everyone. I made a visit to the United Kingdom in April, 2015. The trip lasted 14 days. Photos taken with X-E2 and 18-55mm lens, processed with LR 6. This " kit " lens is a great work-around gem ! Re-evaluate all the photos recently, I found a lot of room for improvement. Picked some photos and share on Flickr. Thanks for watching! . *** Edinburgh *** Edinburgh by Jack Lee, 於 Flickr Edinburgh by Jack Lee, 於 Flickr Edinburgh by Jack Lee, 於 Flickr Edinburgh by Jack Lee, 於 Flickr **** York ****** York by Ja ck Lee, 於 Flickr York by Jack L ee, 於 Flickr York by Jack Lee, 於 Flickr
  8. I’ve been using Fuji since they introduced the X-E1. Over the years since I have had a number of Fuji bodies and lenses but have settled on an X-T2 and an X-E2s with various prime lenses. I have always found Fuji to be a great system to work with and have earned much of my income from their products. The lineage of each model seemed logical and each new version made progressive improvements such as improved AF or resolution for example. You can tell that the X-E2s is progression from the original X-E1 with nicely thought out additions or upgrades. The X-T2 is such a nice camera and certainly a step up from the X-T1. So far, so good. In my mind at least the line up worked something like X-A cameras for amateurs, casual shooters, etc. The X-T10/20 for the more trendy photographer, someone who liked innovation such as touch screens and blue tooth and the cute look of the camera. The X-E cameras for the expert photographer, the person who liked the rangefinder styling and the smaller size for travelling and discrete photography, a street photographers camera perhaps. the X-T range for the more demanding photographer, someone who wanted a more professional kind of camera in a DSLR style and the X-Pro for the same kind of photographer who preferred a rangefinder kind of camera. I’m probably wildly wrong here but at least it’s a stab at my understanding the lineage of the various Fuji offerings. Then came the X-E3 and messed it all up for me. Here was a camera that looked like an X-E camera but seemed more at home in a X-T20s? In the lineage, instead of a progression, someone seems to have left the logical path and gone off track with this camera. In my mind at least, the X-E3 should have been an upgrade from the X-E2s. Perhaps a X-E2s with the X-T2 sensor and AF but with the XT-20 flippy screen and IBIS. I can see how introducing bluetooth connectivity with a tablet and touch screens would appeal to an X-T20 user perhaps but where is the camera for the X-E1, X-E2 and X-E2s user? I’m trying desperately hard to find the good in the X-E3 and I will try one out but it simply does not appeal to me right now. I feel that Fuji have spoilt a good thing by letting someone introduce trendy features onto something that was historically more traditional. It would be a shame if Fuji lost their vision after all the success they have had to date.
  9. It had started with glances and wonderings at the new and alluring X-Pro1. What man hasn’t stolen a quick look at an attractive new model from time to time … just so long as the camera in your life doesn’t notice (she almost always does)! Then one fateful day a lovely, sleek and attractive X-E1 with a sexy 35/1.4 came into my life. The old DSLR was abandoned without ceremony or regret, my head had been turned, I was now a Fuji man, no doubt! Soon the X-E1 and 35/1.4 became part of a harem, lenses, bodies and flashes were added. A smorgasbord of Fuji! There were X-E2s, an X-T1, X-Pro2s and an X-T2 and a positive orgy of lenses! That brief stolen glance had become a life style, a way of thinking and seeing, an obsession! A 23mm, a 56mm, a 90mm, a 16mm all soon made a home for themselves. Life with a whole heap of Fuji was a ball. A party where there was nothing off limit. As soon as something new came out, I had to have it, but there was also a feeling of dullness, a loss of vision. Was I just becoming a camera collector? Sure I was making a living out of it but was the focus the equipment or the making of pictures? Sure professionals need the right equipment but when I thought back to early days when a Hasselblad with 50mm, 80mm and 150mm lenses and an M6 with 24mm, 35mm and 90mm lenses sufficed, what was I doing? I began to feel cluttered and confused, what was going on? There was simply too much stuff. I needed to rediscover my first love. So they all had to go, the party was over. I needed to clear my head and get a fresh perspective. I’ll be faithful to my X-E2 and just keep f2.0 lenses, yes that’s it, that’s what I’m going to do. I’ll relive those heady romantic days when I wandered freely with a single Fuji in my hands and a few lenses in my bag. I felt so free, so light, so happy. Less is more, embrace the simple life. Then Fuji revealed a bigger model, what was this? The curvy GFX with it’s voluptuous body was in the spot light. She was alluring, promises of performance beyond anything yet experienced but she wasn’t a cheap date! Could I… should I? No, she’s not for me. I can’t afford the cost of allowing her into my life. Does the journey end here? Has Fuji gone in a direction I don’t want to follow? What about all those lovely new optics? What should I do? Oh, no! Then there was mention of an X-E3, would she have a tilt-able (or even an articulated) rear screen? Could there be IBIS? What would she look like, how would she perform … might there also be a 70/2? Oh, no - not this again! Here we go, my name is Chris and I am a cameraholic! For goodness sake, K.I.S.S. make pictures and not camera collections! I’ve stripped down my Fuji stable to the bare basics, just what I actually need and no more. It’s going to be a couple of X-E bodies and a few f2 lenses and nothing more…
  10. Hi I'm an amateur enthusiast and have been using an X-E2 with 18-55mm R LM OIS lens for just over 2 years now and love it, I'm new to the forum and unfortunately begin with a problem. I'm always wary of software/firmware upgrades and have been happily using the camera on vers, 1.0 for the last 2 years. A couple of weeks ago I took the plunge & updated the firmware to 4.01 (also updated lens firmware to 3.21). As I was upgrading from 1.0 I also took the advice to do a shooting menu reset and set-up reset straight after the upgrade as recommended. Everything seemed OK until today when I connected the camera to my laptop using USB cable to download some images. The camera froze - LCD display, on/off switch everything! The only way to get the camera working again is to disconnect from USB cable, switch off and remove/reinsert the battery. I've tried doing the resets again but the problem remains - Can anyone please help?

  12. When my X-E1, with the XC 50-230 attached, finds a focus point, it is pretty quick. However, when it cannot find anything to focus on, then it takes an eternity before the lens has traveled the whole focusing range (and the red rectangle appears). I so understand that the X-E1 only uses CDAF focusing, while the X-E2 uses PDAF, which will be more reliable in low contrast situations. However, does the X-E2 (or X-T10) also get quicker to the conclusion that it cannot find a focus point? Or is the time that takes just a property of the lens? Anyone who tried the XC 50-230 on both the X-E1 and the X-E2 (or X-T10)? Thanks!
  13. My current thoughts on continuing to use Fuji. I have been using various Fuji cameras for a number of years professionally, however I have reached something of an impasse. The chief issue I have is the lack of in body image stabilisation (IBIS). I am a great fan of Fuji cameras (with the exception of the X-pro series which I have tested extensively but decided that the X-T1 and X-E2 suit me better). I love their lenses, particularly the primes (I have an extensive set of both zooms and primes) but I cannot understand why if they won’t stabilise the prime lenses they don’t have at least one body with IBIS? The argument that IBIS may result in a slight deterioration in edge image quality has been put forward by Fuji and I can see the point they make, however, if the whole shot is ruined because of camera shake nothing is gained. Those seeking ultimate quality can always switch off IBIS after-all. The 90mm is a prime candidate for inducing camera shake in my experience. When shooting in good light levels this is no problem but when using available light such as photographing a play or for candid work in the evening the problem becomes real. My solution is to use higher ISO to allow higher shutter speeds, but this has resulted in noisier images than I like or want to accept. The Fuji zoom lenses have image stabilisation but this is of no comfort to those who need the extra speed a faster prime lens allows. 2.8 zooms whilst lovely, do not compare to lenses such as the 56/1.2 for example. Also there are those who have chosen prime lenses simply because they suit their photographic style and habits better. Traditionally fast primes are the weapon of choice for the available light photographer and to have neither IBIS or lens stabilisation in prime lenses seems to be a retrograde step. Just about everything these days seems to have stabilisation of some sort, and this is a great boon, so it baffles me why Fuji persist in depriving us of this advantage. As a professional I have the budget to access to other systems and have tried both the Sony A7 series and the Olympus Pen F and have found that they are both at an advantage because of IBIS. Granted the Micro 4/3 size sensor of the Olympus may be at a disadvantage compared to the Fuji in terms of noise, dynamic range and shallow depth of field and the Sony is handicapped with a smaller lens range, but they both excel when it comes to low light photography because of IBIS. I recently photographed a play professionally. I used both my Fuji cameras and also the Olympus Pen F and to Fuji’s shame the Olympus produced superior images. The reason for this was simply down to the Olympus’ IBIS. Each Fuji image was slightly softer than the Olympus versions. I noticed that the Olympus was just a tiny little noisier, but only when viewed at 100%. I did a similar thing at a wedding with the Sony A7SII and my Fuji cameras and again the Sony gave a sharper image. I love Fuji colours, I love their sharpness in good light, I love the size and ergonomics of the cameras, I love their prime lenses, I love the feel of a Fuji camera and lens in my hands, I love working with the images in post-production but the lack of IBIS is killing it for me. As a professional, I need to use the equipment that delivers the results that satisfy both me and my clients. Sadly I am increasingly reaching for my Sony A7 series equipment. My heart doesn’t want to do this, but I cannot sacrifice image quality for loyalty. So this is a heart felt plea to Fuji, please introduce an X series camera with IBIS before it is too late.
  14. (I know this shot/editing is ugly but I was too lazy to make it better) Hey guys it's me again with another lens comparison test. Did a different one before: http://www.fuji-x-forum.com/topic/317-135mm-lens-comparison/ This time I compared three different 18mm lenses Fuji is offering. XF 18mm f/2 (X-E2) X70's 18,5mm f/2.8 XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 (X-E2) The shots are unedited (fine L) Jpegs (SOOC). I just cropped them and stitched them together. The settings of each camera were set to default (0) except the WB (I adjust it manually with a white peace of paper). ISO 200. Provia. Aperture priority. Cause I don't have a tripod that's so low I used a chair where I put the cameras on top so the frame can vary a bit. Sorry for that. Click on each pictures to open and maybe download on Flickr in full resolution. If you have any questions please ask. If you have any complaints about my test please be polite within your criticism. I'm not a pro so this test might be far away from being perfect. Feel free to share some shots/comparisons of your 18mm Fuji lenses. So now I hope you will enjoy my little CD collection (the second and the forth fifth of this rack are covered by a glass door) f/2 center f/2.8 center f/4 center f/5.6 center f/8 center f/11 center f/16 center f/22 center
  15. The other day I decided to cave in and put some sugru on my X-T1 buttons on the back. While letting it dry for 24 hours, and not wanting to go without a fuji camera for that long (yes, it's that bad), I pulled out my trusty X-E2, which is my backup for portrait and wedding work. While I didn't do any specific portrait or wedding work with it that day, I did have some opportunities to take some pictures at the school where I work of students in the midst of a fun activity. I've not used the X-E2 since I've gotten my X-T1 in April and I had forgotten how much I loved the sound of the X-E2's shutter over the sound of the X-T1. Something about it. However, I had also forgotten how much the X-E2 STINKS with capturing action shots. It just could not keep up with anything. This is in broad daylight and sunny conditions with 1/4000 second shutter speeds and apertures of 2.8 and smaller! The autofocus is just not there. In fact, I wouldn't hesitate to say that I've gotten better manual focus action shots with a 3rd party lens on the X-E2 (See this post: http://abjurina.tumblr.com/post/105967813309/manual-focusing-yes-please about that). I'm really crossing my fingers about improved autofocus with this next update or it might be "goodbye X-E2, hello X-T10". Man, I love the sound of that shutter though!
  16. Hey guys, I read somewhere that the Clutch from Peak Design doesn't work well on rangefinder style cameras and I'm not sure why. Has anyone tried the clutch on your Fuji?
  17. I've mostly been a dedicated Architectural/Real Estate Photographer for a couple of years now, but as I have been since 2011, I am still the official photographer for TEDxDirigo here in Maine. The last TEDx event I shot I was still using a full on Nikon kit and this weekend was the first workout that I've really had with just my Fujis. https://www.flickr.com/photos/treehouseinstitute/sets/72157660955782332/ I'm very happy over all. I used the older X-E1 with the 35/1.4 or 10-24/4 and played with the 56/1.2 for shots in the crowd. Most of the speakers images were made with the X-T1 and the 55-200/3.5-4.8. The wider stage shots were made with the 10-24/4 on the X-E1 and they aren't quite up to the same low light standards of the newer X-T1 of course. As it doesn't look like an X-E3 with a flip LCD is forthcoming anytime soon and as I found the 55-200 too long (at the wide end) for this venue but essential to get in tighter, I may end up getting an X-E2 (I really prefer this form of a camera even to my X-T1) and pick up the more convenient 18-135/3.5-5.6. Most of the time I am shooting between f/5.6 and f/8 for stage work of this sort of event so I don't NEED fast glass in a zoom and 135mm is long enough for most any stage work I've ever done but would also allow me to go wider when I need to quickly, without changing bodies. Getting the 18-135 would likely make the 55-200 redundant (and the 18-135 is weather sealed.) I may be able to pay for the new lens with the older one.
