On article Our favorite gear, rewarded: DPReview Awards 2018 (528 comments in total)

I agree with all of the awards.

I also appreciate the restraint of not giving any crowd-pleasing tie awards.

Herp Photos: Sad sad edge performance for way too big of a price tag.
Very disapointing as I was really hoping for much better edge to edge sharpness especially stopped down.
I guess I will stick with my fuji 16mm.

It’s a zoom.

waldoh: $2000 for a crop sensor lens, this thing better be amazing!

@Satyaa True, Fujifilms medium format glass and system is nothing short of amazing.

racin06: I find it comical that some compare Fujifilm's lens pricing to FF lens pricing. APS-C versus FF is irrelevant in this case. What is relevant is overall lens quality and Fujifilm is tops.

I’ll ditch my camera brand in a second if something else provides better features/IQ/etc...

I left Fuji because I didn’t like XTrans (even though I understand how to get the most out of the files), and a lack of features/lenses that I wanted. This was before XH1 and XT3 and this lens.

I evaluate my system and determine if a better solution exists, then buy that solution.

photofan1986: I don't know. There's still something mushy about those Fuji files. My mere Panasonic G80 with the Panasonic 7-14 produces crisper images.

You need to use Iridient Developer or Transformer or Capture One. LR is terrible with Fuji files.

You sure your not just fanboying?

Is it a better lens than Canon 11-24 f4 or Nikon 14-24 f2.8 or Sony 12-24 f4? I really hope so for the price.

Is the 2.8 coma free for Astro?
Distortion?
CA?
Wide open resolution and stopped down resolution?

Even if your a Canon shooter, I really don’t think anyone is surprised by the lack of medal, rating and review. It’s kind of par for the course now.

In reply to:

PieterB: For 99% of the readers of this forum, this lens will be far too expensive. It is a specialist lens for the really high-end users. Even most pros, who are not into action photography, will probably not buy this lens.

@razorfish I have no use for this lens and won’t be buying it.

Fuji 200mm f2 equiv 300mm f2 meter f2.8 dof
Fuji 200mm f2 1.4x tele equiv 420mm f2.8 meter f4 dof

What happens if I need to go longer?

Sony 400mm f2.8
Sony 400mm f2.8 crop mode equiv 600mm f2.8 meter f4 dof
Sony 400mm f2.8 1.4x tele equiv 560mm f4
Sony 400mm f2.8 1.4x tele crop mode equiv 840mm f4 meter f6 dof

I’m not going to argue if one is better than the other. Both systems have their purposes but it’s about choice.

You have more choice with FF.

In reply to:

razorfish: The insane prices for long glass is the curse of ”full frame”. This is the reason APS-C is right for 99% of photographers.

This lens isn’t for 99% of photographers. It’s a very niche wildlife and sports lens. Just like the new Fuji 200 f2, not for 99% of photographers.

APSC is a compliment not a main dish.

I skipped to the medal and then came to the comments to watch Nikon fanboys be mad about the silver lol.

1. Competitive sensor to Nikon/Sony (I suspect 2-5 are a result of 1)
2. 4K with no crop
3. 1080p120
4. Sharper video (Max Yuryev test)
5. DR that is closer to FF than APSC.
6. Competitive FPS with AF/AE
7. Joystick
8. Dual card slots

Canons flagship sensor seems very comparable to Fuji XT3.

I love the body design (and the idea of shooting medium format) but realistically this is not for me. I will most likely rent one to see for myself if I could justify a medium format system.

Anyone else not super impressed by this lens?

Sure its relatively small, light and has its own purposes but IQ wise it doesn't seem to beat my 16-35 GM. Just to clarify, I am only speaking about its f5.6-11 landscape shots and fully recognize it can do 2 stops the 2.8 cannot.

entoman: Nice! Now if only Sony would redesign their bodies, making them slightly larger and less cramped, then I'd be tempted to switch.

a7Riv, where are you?

I am interested to see the results of the large mount in Nikon Z system.

I fully expect every Z lens to be significantly sharper corner to corner (wide open), have less vignetting, smoother bokeh, rounder bokeh balls, no CA and be smaller than every Sony lens.

Now if this isn't the case, will someone explain to me what real benefits the larger mount equates to?

In reply to:

ShaiKhulud: It took Canikon fans 2 weeks to draw good ol' arguments like:
- EGRONOMICS
- IT'S A SOLID PRODUCT
- GET OUT AND SHOOT, I WON'T USE YOUR TOY FUNCTIONS LIKE IBIS
- REAL PROS DON'T USE SONY (A9 was frequent at RB Air Race Kazan lol)
- CANON IS MARKET LEADER ANYWAY (though Sony just took Q1 USA FF sales according to NPD and not some tea leaf Japan CIPA numbers)

Guys, you're part of the problem. In the world of iPhone (A7/A9) and Galaxy (Fuji) new Nokia (R) and Blackberry (Z7) just don't cut it. You can spin it whatever you want, but both ex-leaders are way behind the curve with their new systems. Glass? As good as it might be, it's heavy, expensive and beyound convenient.

And yes, as a pro I need all the features I can get. High ISO DR, FPS, double IS, great video - all those things will convert to more money during the shooting day. Frequently, I'm the only photographer that allowed at a lot of events because of silent shutter and strict no-flash/LED policy. God bless A7s.

I appreciate the comparisons but they are off.

“iPhone (A7/A9) and Galaxy (Fuji) new Nokia (R) and Blackberry (Z7)”

IPhone = Canon - iPhones almost never have the latest and greatest technology and both have a huge following (mindshare) that will buy anything they release.

Galaxy = Sony - throw in all the bells and whistles while overlooking a basic use flaw.

OnePlus = Fuji - high bang for buck, good build quality but not really in contention vs the giants.

Sony phones = Nikon (ironically) - Trying hard to keep up but realistically 1-2 flops away from selling the division.

In reply to:

kreislauf: I thought I could skip the XF90 f/2.
I thought I could instead rely on a manual 85mm lens.
I am not so sure anymore...

The 90 gets looked over so much, but IMO it is Fujifilms best XF portrait lens.
