I’ll put my cards on the table right away: I’ve developed a slightly tumultuous relationship with zooms. They’re very useful tools but I’ve come to realize they also tend to drive me into what I’d call visual laziness. When I decided to jump to the X system as my one and only kit, I also embraced the fact that I’d be shooting with nothing but primes. In fact much of that decision was coloured by my experience with the X100’s fixed focal length and the way it affected my shooting reflexes. Not that this was anything new: I used Nikon primes as well....

Adobe Lens Profile per Fuji XF 18-55 | Riccardo Gabbana

Adobe Lens Profile per Fuji XF 18-55 | Riccardo Gabbana | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it


Having used, and loved my new Fuji X-E1 with the “kit” lens XF 18-55 f2.8, I decided to try and create a lens profile to use within Adobe Lightroom (or camera Raw). I used Adobe’s Lens Profile Creator available for download. Feel free to download it here, and comment if you find any problem.

EDIT (02/15/2013):
I managed to recreate the profile using a much wider set of pictures, with all focal settings (18-23-35-55mm) and f-stops (2.8-4.0-5.6-8.0-11.0)
Please re-download the profile (same link in this page) to have a (hopefully) much better performance throughout the lens’ range.

Fujinon XF Lens: Zooms - Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS (Tested) |  SLRgear.com | Fujifilm X Serie APS C sensor cameras | Scoop.it

The Fujinon XF 18-55mm ƒ/2.8-4 R LM OIS is Fujifilm's first zoom lens for the X-mount; it's also Fujifilm's first optically-stabilized lens. While 18-55mm is a common range for APS-C kit lenses, the variable aperture of ƒ/2.8-4 is uncommonly bright. The X-mount lens will only mount to Fujifilm digital SLR cameras with sub-frame (APS-C) sensors. Thus, for this particular lens, it will exhibit an effective focal length of 27-84mm. This lens isn't a ''constant'' lens, in that as you increase the focal length, both the minimum and maximum aperture increases.
