XPro 1 – 28mm F2 Minolta MD W Rokkor-X | IK Photography | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

Excellent lens! Equivalent 42mm ( 35mm format ) i actually like this focal range quite a lot, for me it just seems to work with my style of shooting. This lens is sharp wide open at F2 with a slight touch of softness. Fantastic performance on the X-Pro 1. Very good correction of aberrations without light falloff also wide open. Between f2.8 and 5.6 the optical quality is absolutely fantastic. A complex floating lens elements design. Nice bokeh wide open at F2-5.6. The 28mm F2 Minolta MD has great mechanical construction as with other Minolta lenses of this era. This lens is a gem. Hard to find on the used market, get it if you can. The lens balances well but a tiny bit front heavy on the X-Pro 1 but nothing to be concerned about, would be fantastic with the optional grip which will add some extra weight though not in the territory of DSLR’s with comparable focal length. As can be seen on the photo above, its a bit long compared to other Minolta 28mm lenses, its an absolute joy to use, nice smooth rubberized focus grip. Aperture ring has half stops as well…

Fujifilm announces macro tubes, tethering software and X-series firmware availability | DPreview

Fujifilm announces macro tubes, tethering software and X-series firmware availability | DPreview | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Fujifilm has announced two macro extension tubes for its X-series interchangeable lens cameras, the MCEX-11 and MCEX-16. Compatible with Fuji's XF and XC lenses, they offer full AE function and are designed to 'seamlessly blend into the original look and feel of the X-series'. The MCEX-11 and MCEX-16 will be available in mid-December for $99.95. Also making its debut is Fuji's PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows v1.0. It provides two operation modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode for making exposure adjustments either on the camera or connected computer. Macro tubes and tethering software may appeal to a smaller portion of Fujifilm's X-series owners, but their introduction signals a continued commitment from Fujifilm to build a viable system for serious photographers. Fujifilm has also given a December 18 release date for X-T1 firmware promised at Photokina. The firmware v3.0 brings features such as 1/32000sec electronic shutter, 'Classic Chrome' film simulation mode and direct AF area selection to both original black and newer silver X-T1 models. The Fujifilm X-E2 also gets a December 18 firmware v3.0, adding Classic Chrome, interval timer shooting and WLAN remote control with use of the Camera Remote app. The Fujifilm X-E1 and X-Pro1 (also available December 18) are provided firmware updates adding AF+MF control for all X-mount lenses, and the X30's update (available now) improves the autofocus lock function......
