Lens recommendations for X-S10


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am a hobby photographer with an Fuji X-S10 camera who does a lot of landscape pics, sunrises and sunsets with a standard 15-45mm lens. It does give me some really good results however I am keen to get great results. I live in Australia.

I am interested also in beginning portrait photography (never done this before so very much a novice).

Is there one lens that would suit both of these purposes for me?

Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality.
For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.

I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises.

    • If it may be a little cheaper I would recommend the KIPON Tilt & Shift Adapter for Fujifilm X-Mount. It is available for about 300 euros to buy. Then you only need one lens for FX sensors. You can then waste the remaining 14300 euros on something else...
    • The only ways I can get the camera to show the "storing" message while it writes is to set either Clarity or HDR - neither of which can be selected in full auto mode. Even a very slow card does not show that message. I'm out of ideas. Perhaps you could post a link to a file when this occurs (straight out of camera) so that we can see all of your settings.
    • Welcome to our forum. I've copied your corrected post into the opening comment.
    • Maybe it will be more useful for Fujifilm to provide us (GFX users) with a  suitable tilt and shit wide angle lens  which is badly needed for architectural and landscape photography. I had spent over 15,000 Eur  in the system back in 2019 and that includes only the GFX 50s  as a camera body.. The rest of the money was spent on lenses, handgrip and tilting viewfinder which  has just stopped working..  It is only fair that Fuji take care of its clients especially after making a decision to switch camera systems from one brand to another. I have been taking my aging 50 s  even to cover yacht racing, although the focus system and frame progression is a huge disssappointment to say the least. as it takes a huge amount of time. I am a semi-professional and not a full time photographer, mostly engaged in art exhibitions and investment (especially at this day and age)  requires sacrifice... I expect that the system is given proper attention, now that it has lured users and clients to it! I am at the point of buying a second body, a decision which I m still considering or changing back again to full frame... as since then both canon and nikon have come up with workable solutions...
    • Hey, all. I'm in dire need of help. So, currently I have a problem with HSS with Fuji x-t 30ii and Godox ad600bm, using Godox X pro F wireless trigger. So when we first bought the flash and I paired the trigger and the flash, everything was fine and we were able to use it at a very high shutter speed. However, today when we went over 1/200 the usual black band at the bottom of the image appeared. I figured that someone must have touched something, but I can't seem to be able to find the problem. One of the things that concern me is that I press the HSS button on the flash and it's on, but it doesn't show on the trigger and can't find it on this particular trigger. The other thing is that in the user manual, it says that I should set my camera on FP, but when I get to my flash options, there's only front and rare curtain. Can anyone tell me what am I missing and what should I look for to fix this issue? What to make sure is on and what off? When we first got it, we used it at a very high shutter speed and one day this black band started to appear when we go over 1/200.   This is what I see when my trigger is on the camera(the flash works when I take pictures when it's like this btw) and I go to flash function settings, which I understand it shouldn't be like that:
