  1. I’ve purchased 7artisans 50mm F1.8 lens three weeks ago directly from eBay 7artisans store. Here's my short review on this lens: Lens Review – 7artisans 50mm F1.8 (FX Mount)
  2. I've recently borrowed this lens from Hamish Gill to try it on my Fuji X-E2s and write short review of 7artisans 12mm F2.8 lens on 35MMC Here's also related 7artisans 12mm F2.8 Flickr public group for lens samples I've purchased this lens after writing review, and now just waiting for better weather to make more live shots. Also the partial disassembly is planned soon : ) Please let me know if you have any questions on this lens, will be happy to share more details. 7artisans 12mm F2.8 shot with Fuji X-E2s
  3. 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.
  4. Hi everyone. Can any X-E2s user please help me find out what brightness controls on the EVF are available in the camera menus. I sold my X-E1 shortly after buying it because the EVF seemed much too dark for me when shooting in bright light outdoors. I had a similar problem with my X-T1 camera even at the maximum +2 setting but at least the problem has gone away now that I have my X-T2 which is excellent at the +4 setting. I'm thinking of buying a S/H X-E2s as a backup body but I can't find any info about the EVF brightness settings of that camera (as good as the X30 would be fine!) and I don't live anywhere near a camera shop to go and check it out. Many thanks. Mike.
  5. Dear fellow X-E lovers, with our hopes high that Fuji is actually working on an X-E3 now, I've been thinking a lot about what I would want the X-E3 to be like and for which features I am actually willing (and able) to pay. Since I've read all sorts of things about what people want ranging from "as cheap as possible" to "make it an X-T2 in rangefinder format" I decided to make a poll to collect all those opinions in a meaningful way. I am hoping that many people here (and from FR) participate so that I can generate some interesting statistics from the data. Patrick has done some polls but without a bit of background information I believe the value of those polls is quite low (sorry, Patrick ;-) So, here's the link if you want to participate (it shouldn't take long): https://goo.gl/forms/LixLzXFAzOH6SwYx1 » Poll is now closed! I am planning to leave it open for about a week and then do an analysis which I will of course publish here in the forum or maybe as a guest post on FR. If you have any comments feel free to drop them here. Thank you!
  6. I had Nikon AF 300mm f4 at the time purchased X-E1. It was tough to focus using viewfinder, and almost impossible when using screen handheld. So just sold that glass as well as other Nikon stuff. X-E2 and X-E2s have lower magnification mode in the viewfinder comparing to X-E1, and it makes focusing with all lens noticeably easier for me. I've realized that price went dramatically down for Nikon AF glass, and just purchased AF 300mm again almost two times cheaper then sold it in 2013. Here's one of the result from this lens on X-E2s. I've purchased lens for bird shooting, but didn't catch nice bird yet : )
  7. Keep looking for manual alternative of XF 27mm 2.8 lens. Decided to try Voigtlander 28mm 2.8 SL II in Nikon F mount (Canon mount version is heavier and larger). I like how it performs on Fuji sensor. F2.8 F2.8 F5.6
  8. This is another Nikon AF glass I extensively used in the past and sold when moved to Fuji X. I tried XF 50-140mm f2.8, but lens didn't fit my personal expectation. Yes, there is quick autofocus, IS, and super sharp image (even bit sharper than I want). That lens it's large, heavy, expensive, and bothers me by extra digital operations and noise. Also 140mm was a bit limiting after using of XF 55-200mm. Today I received great Nikon AF 180mm f2.8 ED sample from Japan in near mint conditions for only 2/3 of the price I sold my previous one. This lens is built like a tank, has quite convenient focus ring position, and of course f2.8. One of the downside - no tripod collar. But it's not too heavy and works great wide open, so shooting experience on Fuji X-E2s is very pleasant. Welcome back, Nikon : )
  9. Dear Fuji, I love my X-E2! Especially since FW 4.0 it has become a spectacular camera (save the waxy skin) and I'm so thankful for that FW update. I couldn't be happier when compared with the DSLR I was shooting before. Now give us that 23 f2 and then a 56 f2 and I'll be jumping for joy. But as much as I love the X-E2 I really hope you'll one day give us an X-E3. And I'm pretty sure I (and many others) wouldn't be able to resist upgrading from our X-E2. Here's what I think it should look like: Now let's get the basic specs out of the way and then I'll write some details about each one: - WR - No integrated space-wasting midget-flash - 24 MP X-Trans III sensor - Tilting touch screen - Large EVF from the X-T1 but with higher resolution and that nice refresh rate from the X-Pro2 - Front and rear dial as well as a combined SS / ISO dial - Focus-recompose and touch screen to select focus points (omitting the need for joystick or 4-way controller) WR I'd really like that but I can live without it. My lenses aren't WR anyway. No Integrated Flash Leave that thing out. It's so useless. Literally the only thing I do with it is popping it up and pressing it back in when I'm bored. I'm serious. Integrated flashes are weak, very limited, add potential weaknesses, cast ugly shadows and make WR more difficult. For triggering remote flashes (the only real use this thing has) rather find a way to brightly flash the focus assist lamp if that is possible. The money you save with this can go into adding a tilt and touch screen (see below). 24 MP X-Trans III Sensor Pretty obvious, right? It would be even better if you added PDAF points on the whole sensor but I guess that won't happen. Screen Tilt screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply not use it. And no, it doesn't break easily. Especially not if you don't use it. To accommodate the larger EVF (see below) you will need to make it more compact. I think you could keep it at 3" but all those huge borders around the actual screen area (like on the X-T1 / X-T10) need to go. Not a problem, others manage that as well. Touch screens are so useful. I want one. I know some self-proclaimed purists don't want one but that's nonsense. They can simply turn it off. And no, it doesn't cost much and it also doesn't drain the battery when it's turned off. It's embarrassing that so many cameras still lack one when we're in the age of the smartphone. The potential is huge but (like with the tilt screen) many fail to see that until they use a well implemented one. The main functions will be focus point selection (when shooting on a tripod) and menu navigation. EVF Yes, I want that huge X-T1 EVF. It's lovely and I want you to somehow squeeze it into the X-E3. To do that we'll need to move the screen and give up that 4-way controller which isn't needed (if you implement my suggestions for focus point selection). Add a higher resolution panel and give us that 85 fps refresh rate and we'll be extremely pleased. Please give us a diopter correction that doesn't constantly move by accident. And mark the freaking neutral position! This is UI-101! Dials Give us a combined SS & ISO dial. Not quite like in the X-Pro2 but similar. Lift-and-turn is too difficult to perform since it needs a significant change in the right hand position. Instead make it so that the button on top toggles between ISO and SS. Almost always I'll keep either SS or ISO fixed and adjust exposure with the other. So toggling the two would be perfect. The outer design (SS outside, ISO in the little window) is great. It would be even better if a deep press of the top button locked both settings so they can't accidentally be changed. I'd love front and rear control dials. Make them like the rear dial on the X-E2. Not that mushy thing you put in the X-T10. And then give us the option to change ISO and SS with them by adding a "D" (for dial) setting on the SS/ISO dial. Simple concept: - You like those labeled dials and only need full stops for ISO and SS: use the top dial. - You prefer DSLR-style dials or need 1/2 or 1/3 stops: use the front and rear dial. That way you can make all of us happy: everyone gets to use the dial they want and that ridiculous two-dials-are-needed-for-one-setting-thing has an end. When I use the front and rear dials for ISO and SS I want a press of the dial to switch between manual and auto mode. When the auto mode is selected, turning the SS dial changes the minimum shutter speed and turning the ISO dial changes the maximum ISO. Simple as that. Not a dial, but an important button: I want an AF button that works like the AF-ON buttons we are used to from DSLRs: press once for AF-S, hold for AF-C, half-pressing the shutter doesn't activate AF. Focus-point Selection We have two ways to select the focus point. Both are faster than joysticks or 4-way controllers and therefore (and since we have no space for it) we don't need either of those. Handheld shooting: focus on your subject, half-press the shutter button (extra step when using AF-button to focus) and recompose. The camera automatically selects the new AF point closest to the subject that was initially focussed on. Tripod shooting: use the touch screen to simply tap the desired focus point. In handheld shooting using the LCD you can use either method. ----- So, Fuji, these are my suggestions. I'm sure there might be some problems with this concept I haven't thought about but the general idea seems like a lovely camera to me. Here are a few additional (random) points: - Yes, it would be a step up and probably cause this camera to be priced the same or closer to the X-T2. I wouldn't care. - If the camera needs to become a few mm taller or wider to fit the large EVF that would be okay. - The exact button placement would of course need to be tested on actual prototypes, this is just guesswork. - Centered tripod mount please! - Dual card slot would be awesome. And please let us insert the cards from the side. - Adding Bluetooth for a stable remote connection with low power consumption would be great. - I'd like to have the ability to use the EC dial as a WB compensation dial when shooting in manual mode with AWB. - I forgot a Drive button in my mockup. ----- What do you think of this camera? Would you buy it? Would you rather buy this or the X-T2 with the same specs? What would you do differently? Feel free to drop a comment. If someone with more PS knowledge than me (not difficult) wants to do a proper rendering feel free to do that. Just want to tell Fuji that they should release an X-E3? Here's your chance!
  10. Hi all, I have had an X-E1 since shortly after they came out and am now looking to upgrade. I love the X-E1 but would like the advantage of the improved AF of the X-E2. Here is my dilemma. I can get a used X-E2 from a reputable dealer for about $550 (Canadian). At the same time, the X-E2s is on sale here in Canada for $750. So, given that the X-E2 with firmware appears to be nearly as good as the X-E2s, what would I be missing out on for that extra $200? If it helps any, I shoot a fairly wide variety of subject matter (street, flowers, abstract, etc.) but am really looking forward to the improved AF for more "action" shots (i.e. I have two active kids). I've read that even with the improved AF there is still an issue with action shots, but i figure it's gotta be better than the X-E1. Thanks in advance for any input.
  11. I use Photoshop CS6 (on OS 10.11.5) as my only photo editor. It no longer supports RAW files from new cameras, including my X-E2S, so I convert images to DNG for editing. This works fine but I'm curious if I'm missing anything by not editing from native files. So I did a test of printing an RAF file converted to DNG, another opened in Silkypix, and a third opened in the trial version of Iridient. All three prints look good. I can't see any flaws or advantages in any of the three editing methods. Has anyone else done comparisons between DNG and RAF files? I'd be interested in hearing other peoples' experiences with this.
  12. Wonder if you could PLEASE help me. I have just ordered a new Fuji X-E2S from Cameta. My first Fuji after Canons, Sonys and Panasonics. I am excited. Watched this video, on YouTube, by the "Fuji Guys", in UNBOXING the Fuji. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVjqpubCUys Yes, I know they are in CANADA but they made a BIG DEAL about checking the SEAL on the camera. See attached frame-grab from video. Having bought quite a few cameras from BugDig and Cameta I had a 'strange' feeling about this. So I just called up Cameta. They tell me that my X-E2S will arrive with NO SEAL -- and that this is the case with any Fuji bought in the U.S. So what is the story here PLEASE. Why would they use a seal in Canada and not the U.S.? Any help will be gladly appreciated. Thank you. Anura Fuji newbie.
  13. I just made the jump Friday from a Canon 7D Mark ii to a Fuji X-E2s. There is a learning curve, but I am excited to start learning the new camera. I always start by reading the manual, and this has taken me a couple of days while playing with the camera at the same time. The Canon was a fantastic sports camera, but my interests have changes to portrait and landscape, and I think this camera suits me better. I love how the screen changes brightness to reflect changes in ISO, shutter speed, etc... very cool way to see what you are getting.
  14. Hello All We have plenty of rumours flying around re the X-T2, X-Pro2 X-E3 (2s) but what about the occosionaly mentioned Monochrome only body? I for one, and I'm sure many others are waiting to hear & then rush out & buy this! Cheers....
