Fujifilm XF23mm F1.4 R Lens is a WINNER! | Brandon Remler

Fujifilm XF23mm F1.4 R Lens is a WINNER! | Brandon Remler | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


I have not been able to put this new XF23mm lens down.  I've tried it on at least four different X-Series bodies and I love it on them all!  Sharp and fast - what more could you want??  Focus ring has a limit (doesn't spin 360) from close-up to infinity, click stops on aperture ring, sharp focus peaking, and hyper-focal scale. On sale now the lens is going to quickly become a classic and launches the X series into new ground with the street shooters and photo enthusiasts.  I've always loved carrying the X100S and now I have almost the same set up, yet with an extra stop of speed.  Check it out at a dealer near you......

SAGRES NATURA - SOUTH PORTUGAL WITH THE FUJINON XF 55-200mm | Andreas Kandsberger

SAGRES NATURA - SOUTH PORTUGAL WITH THE FUJINON XF 55-200mm | Andreas Kandsberger | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Now it`s time to show you some pictures from my recent trip to Portugal where I got the opportunity to test the new Fujinon 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS lens. But first I want to tell you some background information to the journey. A good friend of mine, Nicole Kramm told me about the fun she had learning to surf. Every time she mentioned her adventures in the south of Portugal her eyes got that special look... So I remembered back the days (about 15 years ago) I was in the same situation. Heading down south, a surfboard on top of the car, looking for good waves in Italy or Portugal. Nicole´s tales about perfect lefts, glowing sundowns and the nice people down there made me dream. So I decided to pack my bags...

 

So where is the missing link between a rolling wave and the 55-200mm telephoto zoom lens? Neither of them is perfect! But some things are getting close! As Patrick La Roque mentioned in his review of the new XF23mm: "Damn, another winner" - this is also true for the XF 55-200mm zoom! I shot the most pictures on this journey with this lens. Not just because of it´s common range - no! It´s because the lens is really near perfection!......
