  • Unfortunately I do not have both 35mm lenses, only the 1,4 (my first Fuji lens). I agree that it is special, on Fujirumors it was recently voted the most loved prime. For a reason. But I have the ...
  • Sorry, I did not read your initial posting due to it's length, but if you want the  best shift option, buy the Canon TS-E 24mm Mk II plus a used 5d body of your choice (anything from the 5d II ...
  • " the days of PC/Laptops are coming to an end. Tablets like the new iPad Pro, surface and pixel will be the future."
    Which is a bad Zeitgeist, because I still get work done on my average PC with...

  • Replied in So true....
    My first X camera was the X-E1, and it was my main camera for 2 years until I bought the X-T1. When I look back at the X-E1 files I am now shocked how good these look! Very sharp, and gorgeous, ...
  • Whatever is correct, I don't mind. Even if they came out with an X-H2 with all the innards of the X-T3 after chrismas, I wouldn't mind. I have the X-H1 since last Feb, and I like the camera. Don't ...
  • likes most looking at the world. I would look at my other pics and find out which is you favorite focal length in FF or APSc, and see if that translates into a GF lens. 45, 63 and 110m are all ...
  • Replied in So hopefully....
    hopefully they will then support the X-H1 with many major firmware updates. I'd hope for sensor shift, which would add tremendous appeal to this camera, which otherwise is just an X-T2 in a better ...
  • Do not speak for others. If you disagree with someone else's opinions, then just write how you see the problem, there is absolutely no need to be impolite and rude, and to start ad hominem attacks ...
  • Replied in SLR/N
    Well, I had the SLR/n years ago, but getting good results required hitting it's very narrow "sweet spot". And then there were still issues with heavy moire. I prefer using an uncompicated camera ...
  • they  are actually quite good at what they do. They are both serious, have made a living in photography and now also as YouTubers, and they have 1,1 mio followers. For a reason.
  • I made the switch already in late 2012. Kept the 5d2 another year or so, but it saw less and less use. I liked the color and the results of the Canon, but the AF was sluggish and I had lots (!) of ...
  • Commented on a photo in the Nikon Z7 sample gallery sample gallery

    Hmmm, I find this strange testosteron- driven spectacle called "wrestling" highly ridiculous, but the images have mood and just look great.

  • f2,8 in dark light is already quite slow-ish, f2 is so... so, 1,4 is good. If Canon can do a normal standard zoom in f2, Fuji should be able to do that too...
  • I did experiment quite a bit with PN, Irident X- Transformer, C1 and LR: The pure demosaicing is clearly the best in PN, but there are quite some weaknesses hard to overlook: - horribly bad ...
  • You don't always have to print in A1 size. In all other cases, should be good enough. Just the bokeh ist not that nice.
  • I have been buying PN when it first came out, but it doesn't support my X-H1 as it is an old version. Question: Apart from it's really fine demosaicing, does it meanwhile support Fuji's in- built ...
  • You will have to  shoot with one to find out. Half of the performance is due to the spectacular lenses. MF lenses are on a  different level than FF lenses. It is also not on extra shallow DOF, you ...
  • All this excitation around new lenses, AF motors and such... I have the 35/1,4, had the 23/1,4 and have the 90mm and the 56mm. Plus the 10-24. With the later cameras I find them all fast enough to ...
  • Replied in No way
    Economically, it would make zero sense. There are already at least 2-3 brands too much in the FF market now. Leica, Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, Panasonic. Fuji would be the 7th brand. Makes no sense. ...
  • I disagree. I bought PhN when it came out and I like the demoasicing of the X- Trans files, but the rest of the software feels like a shareware from the early 2000s. Also except for some new ...
