Conclusions

While both lenses are quite good, Fujifilm has a major advantage with a more affordable offering while also retaining a better build quality. However, Zeiss has faster focusing and better image quality. This is kind of a tough test to consider but we should all take comfort in knowing that both lenses are excellent. But on a personal scale, I’ve always had a love for Zeiss products the same way that Steve Huff loves his Leicas. And in the end, I’ll have to give the win to the Zeiss despite owning Fujifilm’s lens.

Foodography with the Fuji X-Pro 1 | Gabor Nagy | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Just because I had nothing to do this afternoon and Hanna found something to play with(and not jumping on my back) I baked a blueberry tart(or sort of). Didn't feel like having an espresso so I decided to brew a light filter coffee for myself with Aeropress.

Hanna was still busy playing so I grabbed couple of flashguns, triggers, a softbox and some light diffuser and did a few coffe and cake shots.  All images were made with the Fuji X-Pro 1 and the 35mm f1.4 lens and processed in Lightroom.

My wife loved the cake too, but probably she's going to kill me for my "nothing to do" opening line.

Bon appetit mon ami!

How good is the Fuji XF 35mm f1.4 R lens? | HamburgCam

How good is the Fuji XF 35mm f1.4 R lens? |  HamburgCam | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

A few observations that I made during the test:

- While focusing I noticed that the Canon lens tended to show more color fringing from green to red while I was fine tuning the manual focus.

- The Canon was also more difficult to fine tune since the manual focus reacted rather fast and direct to small movements.

- The Fujinon on the other hand actually benefited from the fine graduation of the “focus by wire” setting in this situation at close focusing distances. This was the first time that I actually saw the benefit of this technology.

- The Fuji seemed to have a larger sweet spot of the sharp focus area depth compared to the Canon – even though both were set to f/1.4

I was surprised that the Fuji lens did this good in direct comparison to my favorite Canon lens! But there is one factor in favor of the Fuji lens that also needs to be mentioned:

The X-Pro 1 recognizes the Fuji lens and applies some lens correction inside the JPG engine. The Canon lens does not get this special treatment and shows an uncorrected result from the lens. I could have partially avoided this by shooting in RAW but then the RAW converter of i.e. Adobe Camera RAW could have recognized the Fuji lens as well and add some auto correction. But in the end I wanted to see how the Canon lens compared when I use it on the X-Pro 1 in my normal use and this is what I got. The X-Pro 1 will not internally compensate for the Canon lens no matter what I do.

But if you happen to own some Leica M lenses and purchased the Fuji X-Mount to Leica M-adapter, then the Fuji will internally apply corrections to some of the Leica M lenses (i.e. the SUMMICRON-M 35mmF2 ASPH)

My resume:
The Canon EF 35mm f1.4 is a fantastic lens on my Canon FF DSLR camera. It has a fast Ultrasonic AF motor and the weight and size match the bigger camera body well. The Fujinon XF 35mm f1.4 R is a fantastic AF lens for the Fuji X-Pro 1 / X-E1 cameras. This comparison has solved the question for me if I could improve the image quality by using the Canon EF 35mm f1.4 instead of the XF 35mm f1.4 for special occasions. The answer for me is “No!” and I can now comfortably leave the bigger Canon 35mm lens attached to my Canon camera.“Bigger is not always better” :)

I drive 8 times a week through the Belgium countryside. Always the same road. This morning the fog was so beautiful I had to photograph it.

The Fuji X-pro1 is so small it is always with me. The 35mm did the rest. B&W conversion in Ligthroom.

A Mini Adventure with the X-E1 | David Cleland

A Mini Adventure with the X-E1 | David Cleland | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I recently acquired two little, vintage dinky mini cars and normally would have reached for a 50mm lens and a sub f/2.0 aperture to create a miniature world effect. The Fujinon 35mm lens at f/1.4 is equivalent to a 53mm lens at f/2.0 on a full frame camera so I began to wonder if I need to turn to 50mm to achieve the depth of field I was looking for. Starting of with the Fujifilm X-E1 & 18-55mm XF Lens”>18-55mm zoom lens I shot a number of photos of the car (setting the X-E1 on macro mode). You can see from the following two images to get the scale right meant framing at 35mm-55mm....

 

You can see that moving between the 18-55 zoom and 35mm prime offered different focal lengths and I could adjust the scale of the car. I think both the 18-55mm zoom and 35mm prime worked well to achieve a ‘slight’ sense of reality. I am genuinely beginning to wonder if I really need to retain a full frame camera given the quality of photographs I can achieve with the fujinon lenses. I know there is an even finer DoF offered with f/1.4 on full frame but I am just not sure how often I actually need it.

 

Note: All photos were captured on the Fujifilm X-E1 and either the 18-55mm zoom lens or 35mm prime lens.

Park in Fog | Jeff Seltzer

Park in Fog | Jeff Seltzer | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Where I live in Southern California ("The Valley") it's rare that we get really thick fog this far inland...it's even more rare that we get really thick fog this far inland, and I'm not too lazy to wake-up and photograph. So, it was a rare occasion indeed last weekend that I got a chance to capture some images at the park around the corner. I love fog because it creates a clutter-free background with just about anything, which is important to me when I shoot. Early morning is also great at the park because there's a relative lack of people getting in my way. Still, several runners stopped and just stared at me as I photographed, no doubt thinking, "what the hell is he taking a picture of??!" (which is a typical reaction for me). All images are taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 with 35mm lens.
