fPrime: Seems to be a sharp enough lens but also one without much rendering magic. Subjects appear to be compressed with relatively little depth to their features.

Had this gallery included some images shot with a strong comparator lens like the RF 85/1.2, I think the rendering differences would have been quite noticeable.

@fprime - nice try.

Some really good ones in here. And just when I thought I've seen the best flamingo shots.

@sharp - prove the cardboard look. I don’t think you can. But you can try.

LOL - "rendering magic", "cardboard cutout" look - that crap is all in your head boys. I dare you to demonstrate that in a comparison.

FredBGG: Review tip...

If you are testing an f 1.4 lens...take a few photos at f1.4!

;)

The kids are very cute!

There is at least one - Jordan holding the baby. It's a great shot to show of what this lens can do. Would like to see more, but it's certainly a good one.

Fantastic lens!

Jordan never looked better.

Photoman: Well at least they didn't overheat!

But that's why the cameras overheat. "We of Maze demand 6 billion in bitcoin. For now, until this is paid, your new wundercam will overheat". Poof.

Jones Indiana: Unfortunately the whole X-Series start to show its age.

Yes we have X-T4 - it is not a bad camera - but it is the lenses that are starting to lack.

8 years down the road and still no specialty lenses, still no lenses for birders or wildlife photography. Yes I know there is the 100-400. But its slow and with the extenders attached to it many i ages look either soft or are a little oof.

To me at least it looks Fujifilm is going the Olympus route and we all know how that story is ending.

@Jones - who said they stopped Kaizen? And who says they have nothing to show but old stuff? I think you haven't been following this well.

@ Jones - So they were good, but not anymore? How does that work? These lenses still out resolve the competition.

Why put money into image quality when you can just add gold?

stevo23: So was it the light, or a representation of it?

Exactly, it’s not the light. They didn’t film light in action.

Reactive: These out of camera JPEGs look miles better than the Canon R6's sample gallery, and from a much lower-res sensor. Credit where credit's due, these make the Canon R6's smeary JPEG efforts look truly poor considering its 50% greater pixel count. Note I am a Canon user.

@Reactive - yea, I think they're pretty good looking images.

@Reactive - I think I like the A7sIII samples better than the R6, but there are too many variables in a sample gallery like this to judge the cameras. I look for a studio comparison to isolate camera vs. other factors.

@bob - I'm sure Huawei has already picked them out.

In reply to:

NatuRaOx2: On guy posted this whole system just doesn’t have that “Medium Format Feel or Look “ . I think it does but to a lesser degree and that’s probably because it is a smallish medium format sensor? Maybe?
From what I’ve seen the photos that is , I get a feel of “normalcy “ and it’s an almost normal feel . Medium format photos usually give me that feeling that things are of normal proportion , a feeling of comfort maybe. I don’t quite get that feeling with this particular lens . I feel a little stretch from this 30mm .
I think the whole larger format look and feel is being able to go wider and not have as much of the distortion that a wider lens creates. But on the same note I think the “new” super corrected and super flat , sharp across the fov takes away the 3d pop feel . This is even with the new ff lenses, we are loosing the natural feeling or organic feeling. We will get used to this and the younger people already look , see , and feel, this and it is normal to them .

@fujixt3 - well that’s it then.
