Nice! Are you happy with the lens? Thinking about buying it as a cheaper alternative to the Mitakon and even the new 7artisans 0.95 lenses. But not so many reviews, so not sure if it is a good buy.

I've been having a good time with this lens. Being all manual, it takes a little practice to focus wide open... very shallow depth of field. I bought mine for less than $250 USD including delivery. The lens has its own "personality." Happy? You can see the results.

Good to hear. I got a cheap second hand 7artisan 55mm 1.4. I really like manual shooting so that's why I'm looking for an extra lens. 55mm is often to long for me, that's why I want a 35mm. I really like the default colours of the Mitakon, a bit warmer then the 7artisan lenses. Of course this can be fixed in post, but the Mitakon has something special. I read the Risespray is a copy of the Mitakon with even some improvements so very tempting to get one...

    • Which manual settings did you use? Don‘t depend just on the viewfinder in dark environents or with large aperture values since it will brighten up the picture with standard viewfinder settings. Look at the exposure indicator, should be around 0.
    • When I shoot "street" with adapted lenses I use f8 - f11, if I want utilize max aperture (1.2 - 1.8) I try to focus without focus peaking as it might cheat you.
    • Finally picked up an XF 100-400mm after looking for a good deal for a while and took it out for a spin this weekend. Fired off a few tests shots and they seemed fine but then everything after that was heavily under exposed to the point I could barely make out the image. Nothing was changed in any major way in terms of manual settings and if I switched to a different lens the issue was gone and all images appeared in view mode as they appeared through the viewfinder when taken. Back to the 100-400 and switched to auto mode and then all the photos were fine but everything I shot with manual settings was under exposed again. Am I missing something? It seems like it's purely a lens issue and nothing to do with the settings as I tried 3 other lenses and didn't have any issues with any of them. I'm at a loss here and would love some help. I'm hoping it's just something really easy I've overlooked.. (Shooting with an X-Pro 2)
    • I like buying local. But I also like to check internet prices. and I also dont like getting bent over on pricing but once again I like to support our local stores. I called a local camera shop and the price was close to double what ebays new pricing is. Is there a difference in actual Fuji lenses like where they are made or quality differences? In the same lens  Thanks for any help Rick
