FUJINON XF 10-24mm ƒ/4 Review | Fuji vs. Fuji

FUJINON XF 10-24mm ƒ/4 Review | Fuji vs. Fuji | « Coup de cœur » | Scoop.it

When I decided to ditch the DSLR, the lens I knew I was going to miss the most was Nikon’s 14-24 ultra-wide zoom. When my FAS (Fuji Acquisition Syndrome) first began, the 10-24mm ƒ/4 was already on the roadmap so I knew I’d eventually be ok. With an equivalent focal length of 15mm at the wide end, it’s the slightest bit less wide, but it also reaches out to just past 35mm equivalent so it’s more than a reasonable tradeoff. It’s also an ƒ/4 fixed aperture, which of course, is a little slower the the ƒ/2.8 of the 14-24. But then the 10-24mm ƒ/4 has OIS (or VR or IS in Nikon’s and Canon’s parlance, respectively), which gets you extra handheld stability in low light. In fact, it would be more accurate to describe the 10-24mm ƒ/4 was a 16-35 VR that goes much, much wider. And it’s smaller. And lighter. And the build is better. I would chose this lens any day over any of the ultra wide zoom offerings from the full frame systems. The rings on this lens are all very satisfying. Not quite as satisfying as the 56mm ƒ/1.2, but really, nothing is. The inner-most ring which controls the aperture has the exact same feel as the FUJINON XF 18-55mm ƒ/2.8-4. The zoom ring is a little stiffer than the 18-55mm. Whether or not this is better will come down to preference. I should note again that I’m working with a pre-production unit so things could be different with the shipping product. The focus ring also feels just like the split focus ring on the kit lens. Nice and smooth.......

FujiFilm vs Sony A7(r) | Frank Doorhof

FujiFilm vs Sony A7(r) | Frank Doorhof | « Coup de cœur » | Scoop.it


Ok, now this is a blogpost that I never planned on writing till I got a question about it. Let me start off by saying that I love the Fujifilm cameras A LOT, I own a X-E1 and in my opinion it is/was one of the best cameras for street Photography, and the X-trans sensor is just awesome. Now there is a price difference between the Fujifilm X-E1 and the Sony A7r I’m now testing but I thought let’s just look at the X-E1 vs the A7r and see what happens. In this blogpost you will read my personal opinion. When doing camera comparisons it’s of course always important to look at price, and let’s be honest the Sony is a lot more expensive, but….. is it worth it? .....

Tilt-shift adapter on the Fuji X-E2, X-Pro1, and X-T1 cameras | Tom Grill

Tilt-shift adapter on the Fuji X-E2, X-Pro1, and X-T1 cameras | Tom Grill | « Coup de cœur » | Scoop.it


One of my favorite lenses for still life photography is the Nikon 85mm tilt-shift macro. I like working my lenses with wide open apertures, but at close distances where the depth of field is at it narrowest I often lose too much detail in the subject. Stopping the lens down increases the depth of field for to include more in focus, but it also destroys the totally out of focus bokeh of a wide open aperture. The tilt shift lens allows me to selectively include more areas in focus while still maintaining a wide open aperture and good bokeh. I often do a lot of spontaneous still life photos at home where I have a soft window light, but I keep my Nikon tilt-shift at the studio. On ebay I found a tilt-shift adapter made by Kipon to fit the Fuji X cameras. Kipon makes a several models for adapting a variety of lens types. I was interested in the Nikon to Fuji X series, which I wanted to use with 50mm and 35mm Nikon D lenses, and a 60mm Nikon macro giving me effective focal lengths of 75mm, 50mm, and 90mm on my Fuji X-E2. The adapter also comes in a Nikon G mount which adds aperture control......
