The New Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 VM on the X-Pro1 | Adrian Hong

The New Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.5 VM on the X-Pro1 | Adrian Hong | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it


I still remember the first time that I used a 50mm lens on a crop sensor body many years ago, it was the venerable Canon 50mm 1.4 on a 300D body. I suddenly realised the importance and necessity of using longer focal lengths for pictures of people. Faces looked natural, features were in proportion and for the first time I experienced the bokeh and sharpness of a prime lens. After dabbling and experimenting with different focal lengths over many years, I have found myself returning to 50mm for almost every photograph that I take on the X-Pro1. My lens of choice for the past year has been the Zeiss 50mm f/2 Planar ZM, giving a 75mm equivalent focal length on the X-Pro1, perfect for portraiture. I have picked up a Zeiss Touit 32mm 1.8 lens and Fujinon 18-55mm zoom lens, and whilst they have saved me on occasions when I need a wider angle of view, I always turn to the Zeiss 50mm as first choice.....

Making the move from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system | Nick Lukey

Making the move from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system | Nick Lukey | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it


I see lots of questions regarding moving from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system, whilst I have moved fully into the Fuji camp and have been extremly happy with my choice, many will be somewhat disappointed with the system. The Fuji Xpro 1 is a visual delight, and engineered to a really high standard, the image delivery is incredible, colour accuracy is superb. The recent firmware upgrades are a welcome addition, (these really should have been implemented a long time ago). Just having the ability to quickly change focus area on the thumbpad is joyous. I usually see the grumbles about autofocus speed to be the main gripe, and one that leads folk to stay with the DSLR. However if you persevere and learn how to use the camera, learn how to overcome its focus issues, you will be so pleased with the image results. Once focus is found its totally bang on. I have always loved Fuji for their approach to applying their knowledge gained in film development, and applying this to their digital camera systems. The jpegs are faultless, I looked at raw files and found no real gains to be had by using raw mode, this applies only to my thinking and I am not wishing to create a raw/jpeg debate. It suits my workflow. I remain totally in love with the system, but sometimes get quite infuriated at Fuji seemingly lack of understanding when it comes to camera ergonomics. Why produce a lovely little handgrip, that leaves you no access to the battery/card chamber, go figure!! Generally speaking the niggles I have with this little beauty are forgiven when I see the results from the Xtrans sensor printed as a 40x30 print.....

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.
