Very interesting, thanks

I know from personal experience trying to compare just 2 lenses on 1 camera how dull and time consuming it is, so thanks for taking the time to do this,

Nick

No kidding. It took forever just to do this amount let alone what I wanted!

Re: Comparing Fuji Fuji X Lenses with Canon Full Frame Lenses

Nice comparison of DOF. You seem happy with the gear...

"From a purely aesthetic point of view I would have no problem only using the Fuji X-E2 in the studio either with natural or studio lights. The results are virtually indistinguishable from a full frame camera and 16Mp is plenty for 95% of all real world applications."

Re: Comparing Fuji Fuji X Lenses with Canon Full Frame Lenses

Very interesting.  Thanks for posting.

I have also compared my 5D MKIII with 24-105 f4L with my X-E2 with 18-55 f2.8-4 in my studio.  At 100% you can see differences that do not show up in any reasonable sized print.  This must be due to the full frame advantage since when I reframe to account for the cropping, there is no difference.

The model's eyes are not in focus.

From the pictures, your favorite lens on the E-2 seems to be the 23mm 1.4

Contemplating a fuji system and wondering what lens to start with to have fun with.

Re: Comparing Fuji Fuji X Lenses with Canon Full Frame Lenses

Thanks for sharing. Is it just me or the Fuji pictures have better colors and contrast than the Canon ones which look a bit washed out compared to Fuji ?

It is my favourite mainly because it's so versatile and great quality. The 35 is a little noisy for my liking but still good.
