By yukosteelI'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
By Sebastian_WarnekeHello 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!

By ZenzamanHello all Fuji lovers!
I'm curious to know how usable an X-Pro1 would be if I attached a 12mm lens on it (the Samyang 12/2). From what I understand, the OVF was designed for lenses as wide as the 18mm. Is the EVF as slow (refresh rate wise) as the X-E1?
I found an X-Pro1 at a great price and I'd give it a go. Given the fact the AF speed is rather slow (compared to my X-T10 and above), a super wide used at its hyperfocal distance would be the logical choice...
PS: I searched the forum but didn't find much info on this topic.
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:

Fuji X-T4, software version 1.22. When I set "clarity" (IQ, image quality settings 2/3) to any value other than 0, processing of single images (raw or jpeg) is noticeably very slow, i.e. it takes about half a second to process one image. When set to 0 processing is not noticeable (i.e. very quick). Is this a normal behaviour ?
I received my new X-T4 not 6 weeks ago and it's currently in with Fuji Canada due to an issue with high speed bursts. The images (shot in RAW) came out with a digital artifact straight through the centre of each image, the first of each burst being ok, but the rest having this pixel perfectly straight bang in the middle purple line.
Thank you for checking, I have just observed the same behavior with the 35mm f/2 - X-S10 with v2.10 chooses 1/100s. I guess I will use the specific minimum shutter speed or simply force myself to use the M mode more.
