Is there anyone who have owned or owns a Voigtlander lens, either adapted, or with native Fuji mount that can share an opinion on what the experience look like?
I do mostly street photographer, and I switched to automatic lenses after having used manual lenses for quite some time.
I thought, after enjoying the automatic experience, I wouldn't be able, or neither like the idea of going back to manual.
But then, for pure coincidence, I put an old manual lens back on my X-Pro2 and I liked it again.
Now, my old manual lenses are fun to use, and somewhat give interesting results, but aren't exceptional lenses by any mean.
So, I stumbled upon the Voigtlander and I thought the render of those lenses is definitely something.
But they're not exactly cheap either. Therefore, before committing, I would greatly appreciate some insights from people who actually used them on a Fuji system.
I'm specifically looking at:
Voigtlander 35 f/1.4
Voigtlander 40 f/2
Voigtlander 35 f/1.2
For some reason, the samples I saw of the 35 f/1.2 don't look as exceptional as the 35 f/1.4, but it could be a coincidence.
I noticed this today on Amazon: "Handevision HVIB4085FX IBELUX 40mm f/0.85 High-Speed Lens for Fuji X Digital Cameras".
I know nothing about the lens or the maker, save what it says on the page on Amazon. And of course I'm not promoting it. I just thought it was interesting that there was a lens this fast, and don't think I've seen its equal for our mount.
I did have a single element asphere that was just for one wavelength, for collimating light, so its optical performance would deteriorate rapidly away from the center. It was f/0.67. And I have a paper about a microscope objective design that gave an NA of 0.92 which corresponds to f/0.2, which could be a world record as far as I know. The paper is here:
But not anything for mounting on Fuji X cameras.
Just thought it was interesting.
I've been shooting with my xt4 and the same cards, for the last year and never had this kind of problem, but last weekend during a job, my camera showed the Write Error text.
Since I was filming a theatre play, there's no way I'd film it again, and proceeded to keep recording. It changed automatically to SLOT 2, and after a while, I've changed the slots. The second card, the one with no problem until then, went to the first slot, and I've put another one in the slot 2. After 5 minutes, the same thing. Write Error, on the slot 1.
When I came home, I've found out that I've lost all the takes that had the Write Error. I'm assuming it's something related to the slots, since it happened to my two fastest cards on the slot 1 and not to the slowest, that was on the second. Both cards that had error, worked perfectly on the slot 2.
The second camera could film it, but my footage disapeared. How I'd lost 11 minutes on the first take, and 5 on the second, I tried to recover it with a lot of different programs and couldn't find any solution.
Does anyone here has any sugestion on how to recover the files?
