Are there Fujifilm X-Series photographer here? What's your camera and your favorite lenses?

Any recommended third party lenses?
>>
U R kidding right?
>>
Favorite is the Xt3 with 35mm f2. Not huge, but sharp as fuck and still stylish.
>>
I own an xt10 and the 35mm 1.4 is always on it. The steel hood is sexy af. I also own the 23mm f2 but I don't use it a lot. I wish I can afford the 56mm.

But, tbqh, I barely use my digital gear. It's like I buy it on a whim. I'd rather use my analog gear. I shoot everyday with it.
>>
>>3488493
My favorite is the XT3. No FF camera can match it.

Recently got the samyang 12mm f2 for my xt3, pretty happy with it desu. Great feel to it for the price.
>>
X-T2, Fujinon 23/2 and Samyang 12/2 are mmost used lenses.
>>
Sony shills are already in full force I see.

I personally use the Xt-2 with 12mm f2 samyang and 18-55 zoom lens. Great camera and beats any full frame camera imo.
>>
I've got an X20, X100 classic, and X-T1. Poorfag so I've been using the XC zooms and adapted Nikkors. I got a Kamlan 28mm f1.4 the other day and it's a great little lens for the money.

Meike batterygrip with boost mode on is amazing. Worth it for sure.

X100 classic, XP2, X-T1 and X-H1...H1 is very underappreciated and my favourite of all fuji's. Im in the minority in that I like the weight and ergonomics. Use the Fujicrons. 35mm & 50mm are the best.

Why do you want the 35mm f/2 for work when you already have the 35mm f/1.4?
>>
>>3492625
HMMM WANT MILKY
>>
Rokinon/Samyang 12mm is supposed to be quite good
>>
>>3490736
I got a Zhongyi FX-EOS Mk II speedbooster a few years back, it's pretty good, though I don't have a proper Metabones to compare it to. The most noticeable optical effect is a bit of distortion around the center, though it's hardly noticeable. Never regretted buying one.

I recommend getting an EOS one, so you can add different EOS adapters (to OM, M42, F, etc.) and don't have to buy separate speed boosters for those mounts.
>>
>>3488493
My favorite is the 23mm f/1.4, it rarely leaves my camera.
It's bigger, heavier and slower focusing than the 23/2 WR (which I've owned 2 copies of), but I much prefer its character.
The image quality is stellar from 1.4 and I especially love the way it renders the transition into bokeh. Really enjoy using it for (environmental) portraits.
The 23/2 is a good lens but never consistently wowed me in the same way every time I load the images into Lightroom.

It is quite chunky on my current X-E3, but it doesn't feel unbalanced or uncomfortable to me.
Really my only negative point would be the far too loose aperture ring. I currently use a piece of electrical tape to keep it on the settings I want. Hardly ideal.

Another lens I really enjoyed was the excellent Samyang 12/2, pretty much unbeatable for the price. I've now replaced it with the Fuji 10-24/4, decent IQ (good for a zoom) but a bit more convenient.

- The 15-45 PZ has a lot better IQ than its build quality and price would imply. It's also tiny when collapsed and weighs nothing. Seems perfect for travelling light.
- The 35 Fujicron is a pretty great all-round package.

slightly smaller size and weight. but like I said i'm doing alright with the 35 f1.4

My X100F is my main digital camera but I still haven’t been able to get the colors to be pretty to my eyes. I think it’s an amazing camera though, I can get shots I can’t easily get on film, but I just prefer the look of my film photos.

X-T2 & I love the 35mm f2, I also love the XC50-230 cheapo. it's not THE best optically but its good enough for images that'll be posted on the web. Plus for the zoom range you're getting vs the weight it's a perfect landscape lens.

I ditched my Canon EF-S system with a quite a few lenses for the XT-2 an the 35mm F2.
Since i was mostly using a 35mm F2 on the old system, i felt right at home - but much lighter because it is mirrorless.
Later on i got myself the 56mm F1.2 and im using most of the time - outdoor and in a studio
Still considering getting the Vertical Battery Grip because i do mostly portrait shots - but i don't wanna bulk up the body

the only camera I have is the x100 but I want to try out different lenses
I wanted to wait for the new xpro to come out
but I'm traveling to greece in two weeks and I need some convenient standard zoom, maybe even a telezoom?
I'm looking at the xpro 1 right now
I think the x-t line would be better for that, but I prefer the rangefinder look
is 250€ for xpro1 body a good price?
>>
X-T3 + 18-55mm kit is great. I also have the 35mm f/2 but I'm regretting not getting a 23mm or 50mm instead.

I also recently bought an X100 third hand, I like the form factor but I hate the menus and button layout. Used to have an X-T20 + 27mm pancake but sold both :(

I have the vert grip. when i wanna just carry a lens and body i'll leave the grip at home. battery life is good enough for a single outing.

That's about right. Be aware the the AF on the X-Pro 1 is kinda shitty and that the OVF doesn't go wider than 18mm.

If you're based the UK use eGlobal to order XF lenses. You can get the 27mm f2.8 for about £100 delivered when it's on sale. That's what I did when I started out. The 27mm is sharp as fuck and since it's a pancake lens it pairs well with any X body. You can also get the XC 50-230mm zoom cheap as hell.

It does take a few weeks to arrive though as they're sending it from Hong Kong.

I loved my X-Pro1 but I sold it because it has only one colour of focus peaking (white) which meant I had to swap to black & white at all times to be able to see the peaking with vintage lenses. Plus Mattias Burling shilled the X-Pro1 in a videos so I made a massive profit selling it compared to what I paid for it last year.
>>
>>3498250
Buy them direct from the chinks on AliExpress. Plenty of FD-FX speedboosters on there. I'm using an EF-FX Lens Turbo II from Ali right now, if you can wait a week or two for delivery you can't beat Ali for adapter prices.

I've got the 35mmf1.4
a friend of mine has the f2
If I stop down to I get very nice sharpness pretty much across the frame.
thats not to say that the f2 is not sharp but it is smaller and has weather sealing.
If the f2 had been out when I got my f1.4 i would have gotten that instead. (price + weather sealing ) would make the deal for me.
So really just consider what you want out of the lens.

if ~75mm is so important to have then why did 50mm get bundled in with practically every film camera sold? the guy already has a ~40mm equivalent,a focal length that's way more generalized and probably more useful for a beginner. the guy hardly seems to have a clue and you're all telling him to spend more money? portraits can be done with 40mm
>>
>>3498959
I'm not saying its important you dingus
he's asking if there's anything else.
implying additional. true its not a need but do you need to come to the internet and tell me I'm wrong for giving suggestions?

I got a $12 C mount 50mmf1.4
its very soft but nice for portraits
if thats too much money I dont ever want to go on a date with you.
>portraits can be done with 40mm
and 24mm and 85mm and 135mm
a cheap nifty fifty is just that. and it happens to come to a decent sweet spot for portraits in the fuji mount
>>
>>3498968
I dunno man. the guy asked if there was anything additional he needs after telling us he has a lens and a body. perhaps I misread but it seemed like you are saying he needs an adapter and a 50.
>>
>>3498657
is it comparable to the Tamron AF SP 70-300mm 4-5.6 Di VC USD? Anyone knows?
I'm only talking about image quality/sharpness and image stabilization, especially at ~200-230mm
>>
>>3498994
Read reviews and check samples. Fuji is one of the lesser used camera makers so you're not going to get that many first hand impressions around here, especially to compare it with Tamron. For Fuji I always do my own research as /p/ doesn't have a lot of info.

Happy researching. I'm probably buying this lens next month, very excited.

What about the xf 90mm f2?
I don't care the weather resistance but I could have a stronger bokeh effect which I like.
>>
Just ordered a X-T3, having only used a Panasonic G7 up until now. Plan on using it mostly for video work. What exactly am I in for?

Also, I used a Zong speedbooster on the MFT platform, but with the APS-C sensor of the Fuji, do I need a speedbooster if I wanted to use a APS-C coverage Canon lens like the Sigma 18-35 1.8? Or would speedboosting a crop lens to a crop sensor give black edges? Are the boosters only for FF lens to Crop sensors?
>>
>>3500129
If you're considering the 90/2 I'm guessing you're willing to spend some money. Pretty much everyone agrees that it's a outstandingly good lens in pretty much every way (but its size maybe) but you have to figure out for yourself if a fixed 135mm equivalent reaches far enough for your type of motorsport photography etc.
In a similar price range, though a little cheaper, you could also get the 55-200/3.5-4.8, pretty much the premium version of the 50-230 the other anon suggested. Also well regarded, though evidently not as bright or sharp as the 90mm, a prime and one of Fuji's best at that.

If money (and size) is no issue, there's also the 50-140/2.8 to consider.
>>
> with the APS-C sensor of the Fuji, do I need a speedbooster if I wanted to use a APS-C coverage Canon lens like the Sigma 18-35 1.8?
nope, just a regular old glassless adapter
> would speedboosting a crop lens to a crop sensor give black edges?
yes
> Are the boosters only for FF lens to Crop sensors?
yes

you should look up how focal reducers work and all this will be very obvious
>>
>>3500157
I get the idea, but I was a little unsure since it looks like the lens-sensor difference is increased with an adapter, hence potentially making the image circle bigger. I guess that would fuck up the focusing and stuff of the lens though if that were true.
>>
>>3500161
>difference
Distance, I mean. Way to drunk for this
>>
>it looks like the lens-sensor distance is increased with an adapter
the whole point of any (glassless) adapter is literally to get exactly the same lens-sensor distance as on the lens' native bodies, AKA flange focal distance. The image circle is therefore identical too.
>I guess that would fuck up the focusing and stuff of the lens though if that were true.
well yes
>>
What’s the best Fuji for using legacy lenses and manual focusing?
>>
>>3500962
ones with largest viewfinders, x-t series.
>>
>>3500965
Would the x-t1 be good or should I save a little for the x-t2
>>
>>3500971
compare specs and decide on whether you personally need those new features
>>
>>3500973
Worried about the x trans ii meme wax.
>>
>>3500962
>>3500971
Haven't used the X-T2, but on the X-T1 I remember being a bit frustrated when using manual lenses because the magnification focus aid implementation is shit (it just magnifies the center pixels instead of actually zooming in on the sensor). That said, if you mainly use focus peaking this probably won't bother you at all.

It's a great camera overall. Didn't notice any meme wax myself, took some of my favorite pictures with it.

My current X-E3 has perfectly usable focus magnification (though still not as artifact free as on the first gen for some reason), I'm guessing it'll be identical on the X-T2 (same sensor).
>>
I shoot with a X100f and low key fucking hate it.
The lens is a work of art though.
>>
>>3498570
Same guy. 27mm is great. Probably gonna get the 35mm soon for cheap, as well. Ordered a meme Helios and a lens turbo ii.

Why
>>
>>3488493
No experience with the GFX system, but the X series has some great stuff. I've gone X100>X-T1>X-PRO2>X100F+X-T2. APS-C still can't match 35mm sensors, but has advantages in certain circumstances like macro or sports/birds/tele. Colors are incredible, tone response is great, ergo is pretty good. Plus, they look innocuous and you can get away with bringing them in places you'd get your shit slapped for a "professional" camera.

I have the 70-140, 14mm f/2.8, 16mm f/2.8, 23 f/2, 35mm f/1.4, and their toy/cap lens. I love them all, though the 35mm has some weird quirks like a loud diaphragm. I usually don't fuck with third party lenses. Get yourself a used X-T2 and have fun.

I think it's a good thing you're beginning in greyscale. My advice is to read up on the zone system. It will help with your exposure as these look a little underexposed.
>>3501734
Also, should have gotten lower to get a more parallel angle on this one.
>>

Thinking about the x100s/t for photojournalism/second camera

what do you guys think of it?
>>
>>3501920

i loved mine, but the autofocus is pretty terrible. Luckily, manual focus and zone focusing is a breeze. The layout of the controls is so absurdly intuitive and simple that I literally forget how to use my other cameras if I use it for too long.
>>
>>3490043
okay..lol

X-Pro2 here. I'm mostly a portrait/cosplay shooter these days (used to be a pro photojournalist and switched to Fuji when I retired) and use the 23 1.4 and 56 1.2 heavily. The Samyang 12 is a great travel lens too. I've also messed around with the Samyang 85 1.4 as a 135 equivalent but haven't done any serious shooting with it, I keep bringing it to shoots and never using it because it's pretty slow and clunky to work with (largely because I have to be so far away from the model and MF every shot).

Given what I'm doing, my biggest issue with Fuji is the lack of field lighting options. Nikon's speedlite system is GOAT and it's by far the biggest thing I've missed after switching. I need to pick up a couple of those Godox speedlites or something.

I'm afraid to say I don't use it, I don't really post my photos myself at all anymore, I just deliver them directly to the cosplayer.

After 4 years of using a Sony a6000 I decided to upgrade to a Fujifilm X-T3. I've been really liking it so far and the manual dials have been a pleasure to use. Being able to change the settings so easily definitely encourages me to be a better photographer and I love the autofocus. As of right now I just have the 18-55 kit lens. I notice that I tend to shoot a lot at 18mm and 55mm and I tend to skip over the middle focal lengths. I was planning on purchasing the 56 1.2 and the 50-200 zoom lens as well as maybe a wide angle and the 35mm. I want a wide angle lens as well but is it really worth spending the extra $400 on the 16mm 1.4 that everyone raves on about when the lens will mostly be used for landscape and grabbing when I'm out hiking? Also is the 35mm F.2 really worth getting if I already have the 18-55 Kit lens at 35mm?
>>
>>3504746
Have you considered the 16mm 2.8 if you're wary the 1.4's price?
>>
>>3504746
if you don't use 35mm on kit lens then that's not worth getting it since you don't use that focal length. Unless you want to challenge yourself to be a better photog, don't get

I also own an xt3 and only the kit lens. if you have the money, then why not. But if you're a brokefag like me then I'd say the kit lens at 18mm works fine for wide angles. I think the kit lens is a great all around lens. Next is for you to decide what kind of photos you want to take. For me I want to get the 35mm because in theory, and according to people it takes sharper images than the kit lens. I also like to take photos of people so I need a sub-portrait lens. I like to compose my human with the background rather than just blurring everything but the subject.

I haven't shot since Having a 5D II and got busy with work... I was thinking about picking up an X-T2 and a 35mm f1.4 what do you /p/eople think? I've done some research it looks like it would be an enjoyable experience, I also don't really want to do a lot of post processing anymore just casually shoot with something a little better than my smart phone.

how much did you pay for all your lenses total.

>>3507037
The very low sharpness in your images is as much more a function of xtrans and crop sensor than bad kit lens.

If you want that sharp, crisp look, sell your xt2 and get an a7.

Sure Fuji lenses are worse than Sony/Canon/Nikon/Leica/etc. But the sensor is mush sharper even as APSC

Both the X-Pro1 and 35/1.4 are first gen Fuji X, literally the first X-system camera and lens. They're... pretty old and were known even back then for pretty lousy focus speed and accuracy in low light, so I don't know where you got your expectations that it would be any different. In unpredictable low light you'll probably want to use manual focus, easy enough with the focusing aids.

The X-Pro2 has phase detection autofocus (instead of only contrast-based like the X-Pro1) and the newer lenses are designed with significantly faster autofocus (due to better motors and designs with lighter, smaller lens groups to move).
The XP2 + newer 35/2 for example would work massively better in low light. The same 35/1.4 on the XP2 would also be a lot faster, but less so.
>>
>>3508013
Is it that the AF is slow, inaccurate, or both?
>>
>>3508012
Image sharpness is dictated by the lens and sensor size, not pixel density. Hence why some lenses are sharper than others. No lens outresolves any modern sensor.

Take a 20mp crop and 20mp ff, the pixel sites on the ff sensor will be twice as large, which means the lens only has to resolve half as much detail to create an equivalent sharpness image to one taken on crop.

That twice as large pixel site also gathers twice as much light, giving you double the signal to noise ratio on ff than on crop.

>>3508013
Read the above, if you want ok low light, sell your camera and go full frame. A mk1 sony a7 has slightly better af than your xpro1, a MUCH better evf and a much better ecosystem, for about $500. Or get an a7iii and have the best low light performance there is.

>>3508016
There's still no sharp detail in that photo.
Once you use proper gear, i think you'll understand better.
>>
>>3508013
You bought a first gen mirrorless camera from 2011-2012 and expected good autofocus/low light performance? Did you get memed into buying it by a youtube video? Not even the Sonyfags on /p/ would admit Sony had it right in 2011 with the Sony Nex system.

The X-Pro1 is great but you really need to work around its age and limitations. If you're in low light learn to manually focus with the focus peaking.
>>
>>3508040
that's okay, sharper is better but it's a sharpness that'll suffice for me. I'm pretty content with my camera. there are people with good and proper gear to shoot sharp images in black and white of confused grandmas in stweet photography. Yeah, they legit.
>>
I have an X-Pro1 that I bought a while back. Only lenses I have for it are the 27mm and the 16mm 2.8.
Fun as a walkaround camera for snapshits, especially with the memefinder. Dirt cheap to get these days because they are kind of shit compared to modern offerings.
Also gives a +3 hipsterism buff

are you trying to flip a box of new old stock or something? gtfo

>>3508023
thanks, might look into thex-pro2, or wait for the xpro3
>>3508036
the 35mm is always a little bit slow, I don't mind it
the problem is in low light I can't autofocus at all
I guess its because how old the xpro1 and the lens are
also,at highest iso (6400), 1.4 and ~1/30s the photos are still too dark
maybe I'm doing something wrong

Should I get the 35mm f2 or bump up to the f1.4? Some of the sold prices for a used f1.4 are much lower than I was expecting considering the difference in their prices new. I'm shooting on an X-E3 and only have a 23mm f2.

>>
>>3508869
the 1.4 is pretty big compared to the 2. you have one of Fuji's smallest cameras and you want to attach one of their bigger lenses? how often do you shoot wide open and for what reasons?

the f2 is lighter and smaller, practically just as sharp and cheaper. the autofocus is faster and quieter. what's there to think about, why consider the 1.4?
>>
>>3500971
Own both, xt2 is 100% worth the extra cost so much quicker AF and camera menu hopping
>>3509079
The 35f1.4 isnt much bigger than the f2 its actually close to the same weight
>>
>>3509157
I dunno man, one is definitely bigger than the other when using such small cameras difference in size can be a big deal for some.

the f2 is still quieter, smaller, lighter and almost as sharp. your response doesn't make my statement any less true. also, one comes with a warranty, the other is used.

Got outbid on eBay for a f2 w/ metal hood that would have ended up being ~$385 CAD all-in (dumb tax & shipping) but then found a craigslist ad for a f1.4 for $500. Pictures of it look pretty mint, still have to verify with my own camera, but otherwise I think I ended up with the better option given the small difference in price.

If the noise and AF speed end up annoying me, I don't think I'll lose any money reselling the f1.4.

Is the new 16-80mm f4 the answer to the "best" travel lens question for Fuji? Pair it with a single fast prime of your preferred focal length for low light situations and I'm thinking it's a pretty decent lightweight kit.

I recently upgraded to X-T3 from X-T1 and it's just so much more fun to use, I love the focus joystick, I love how the zoom preview is much more easily reachable without fumbling around and most of all I love how responsive the shoot button became, it shoots as fast as a DSLR.
I invested into the 56mm 1.2 lens a while ago and I still love how good the pictures turn out.

I don't really like the 18-55mm lens I inherited from the X-T1 though, sure it's versatile but it looks way worse than the 56mm unless the subject is pretty much against a wall and I can't afford to stay far from the subject.
Any suggestions for a versatile lens for close ups and general usage that is not as bad as the 18-55mm?

>>
>>3508120
thanks anon. thinking of copping the following.
>>
>>3510534
What do you use each lens for?
>>
>>3510654
16mm f2.8 general walk about lens for video shooting and landscapes. This and the 35mm f2 are my travel companions.
23mm f2 doesnt really get much use but sometimes I miss the focal length for street...and it just completes the set.
35mm f2 gets most love and I use for portraits and street.
50mm f2 is the best of the bunch optically and use for more candid photography and events.
The 23mm f2 is the weakest of the "Fujicrons" in my opinion. I am looking at the 16-80mm f4 but will wait for the honeymoon period to pass and buy one when people start flogging them off. I never ever buy new...always refurbs as long as they offer 12 months warranty.
>>
Should I sell my 27 f2.8 and get a 23 f2 instead?
>>
>>3498269
When you click the dropdown for the mount FD isn't in there anymore.

>>3501916
It's slow even compared to other cdaf cameras of it's time and it will struggle with low light pretty quick.
>>
>>3510586
the 27mm /f2.8 is great for the size, tack sharp, in the middle of the range so its rather versatile
>>
>>3510671
Talking about warranty and used lenses, have there been Fuji lenses that have started to stop working yet because old age?
>>
>>3510763
None of mine have but then again it isnt technically old

>>3510757
so fucking expensive
but I'll consider it

Guy with the XH and lens set here. I aint rich either (live in a shitty council estate in UK)...but I dont drink or smoke..save around 60 quid per week and buy when I see a bargain...for example 23mm f2 was marked as well used "due to a significant scratch on rear element" for "£190..whoever did the checks was a twat because it was just a smudge that came off with a lens pen.

Lads i am in need of a portrait lens. I know everyone is isntantly thinking 56 1.2 but would a 90 f2 be a better option as I want a little more compression as I used to shoot with 85 1.4 on a crop.
>>
I got a question for you fuji lads.
I have been out of the game for a while, I wanted to get a XT-2 and 35mm to shoot, but my problem is I don't really go anywhere outside of my little town, and when I do its not like I am going to go up to people and ask to take photos of them, should I not even bother?
>>
>>3511263
what do people mean exactly when they say portrait lens?
Like how much of a subject is considered a portrait?
>>
>>3511341
close ups of people with decent amount of bokeeeeeeh?
>>
Anyone have any experience with the Viltrox 85 f1.8?
>>
>>3511340
get a tele lens so you can stand far from them when you shoot. Or a wide one and just shoot landscape like most of us autistic introverts.
>>
>>3511341
A portrait lens is somewhere between 85mm and 135mm (or equivalent) with a decent amount of compression. Compression gives a pleasing look to the face and also brings the background closer to the subject through compression (see pic). Unless you're going for a background with a lot of depth like the first image, it's usually more flattering to have a compressed image like the second one.
>>
>>3511347
thanks anon.
recommendation for a good tele lens? I enjoy candid portraits and landscapes have always been fun.
>>
>>3511348
Sigh
"Compression" is caused by how far you stand from the subject. Nothing else.
>>
>>3511349
50-140 is a superb lens but dear.
you can start off with xc 50-230 which gives good reach for someone who has no tele. Its slow but sharp and also you can find it for something like $150 which is nothing.

I travel a lot and managed to score a used XE-2 online for around $200. Came with the Kit lens (which is fucking great) and 2 batteries and everything.

Ultimately, I've gone through quite a bit of kit, but I mostly do street photography and sometimes impromptu portraits. I mainly carry a 7artisans 25mm f1.8 prime. It's soft in the corners, but not terribly so. If that won't do then I keep the kit lens in my main bag. Those are the 2 that I've deemed worth carrying constantly.

This is a bit moody, but it was a cold fucking day at LGA and it felt right.

I'm amateur as fuck, but this is a fun hobby and I'm poor, so this is the best 'bang for my buck' kit I could assemble.

No idea about American grey market. Prices are already much lower there in general due to rebate schemes and such.

look into an EF-FX booster and then buy EF adapter rings for your lenses.

The EF has so many mounts adapted to it that you can mount pretty much anything, including FD.

It's a lot better than being locked to only FD for the mount option.

Also, the flange distance for EF makes most of the adapters pretty thin, so they don't add any significant size or weight.

The only one that doesn't mount so far is Leica M-mount, but that's because rangefinders have a crazy short flange distance.
>>
>>3500962
probably xt2/3 because of the hugeass viewfinder and nice back screen.
>>
>>3512761
Mounting FD to EF requires an adapter with a glass element in order to reach infinity focus though. And that does result in mild quality loss as a result. It's weird since PK/OM/M42 adapt to EF flawlessly but FD has a few problems despite being a Canon mount.

Luckily glass element EF-FD adapters are cheap as fuck on AliExpress.

I'm sick of lugging my Nikon D700 around, and I'm thinking of getting a Fuji X camera and a couple of primes as an everyday carry / travel system. I've narrowed my choice down to either an X-T2 or an X-T30.

I would probably go for the X-T30, but for the fact that the viewfinder is apparently a fair bit smaller than the X-T2 and that the inferior ergonomics may end up frustrating me. Is there anyone who has experience using the X-T30 and X-T2, and could you tell me if the X-T30 viewfinder and ergos are actually perfectly ok in everyday use?

I don't live close to a decent camera shop, so I can't easily compare the two of them in my hands.

XT-2

Lenses:

35mm f2

Thinking of getting a tele zoom. Any other primes anons here would recommend ?
>>
I've never found an electronic viewfinder that I like and was originally drawn directly to the X Pro and X100 series for their OVFs. However, I've seen some good deals on the XE series and they've piqued my interest. Are their EVFs as shitty and laggy as most cameras?
>>
>>3513046
Compared to what? My main camera is the X-T2 and the viewfinder is beautiful on that. Definitely a massive step up from my old A6000 in viewfinder quality, especially in boost mode with the higher refresh rate. We won't know if you'll be impressed or not though. Some people are very picky.
>>
>>3513050
I'm not too sensitive to lower frame rates themselves but very much so to when there's a large delay in the screen updating when you move the camera or the subject itself moves. That's the main thing I worry about.
>>
I’m new to Fuji, can someone redpill me on the f2 lenses? I could get the 16mm f2.8, 23mm f2 and 50mm f2 for the price of a single f1.4 (imported of course).
>>
>>3513298
We don't serve soi here in this thread.
>>
>>3513299
Oh my fuck I need to stop drinking.
>>
>>3513291
What do you want to know? They're really good. If you don't need the extra stop(s) or the best sharpness Fuji can deliver for the focal length (though the differences are mostly very small) they're a great choice. They're lighter, smaller, weather-sealed, and have excellent build quality (with nicer aperture rings than all of the older f/1.4, f/1.2's).
The only exception would be the 18/2, the oldest of the bunch, which most people regard as Fuji's worst performing lens optically. Personally I really enjoyed that one too though, when I borrowed one for a few weeks.

>>3513046
On my X-E3 the EVF gets slightly laggy in very dark conditions where you'd be using a tripod anyway. In any other light there's no perceptible lag whatsoever. I've never had a problem with it.
If you think you're extremely sensitive to lower refresh rates and want the peace of mind, just get an X-T3.
>>
>>3513317
>On my X-E3 the EVF gets slightly laggy in very dark conditions where you'd be using a tripod anyway. In any other light there's no perceptible lag whatsoever. I've never had a problem with it.
That sounds excellent, then. Like I said in
>>3513177 I can deal with lower refresh rates as long as their isn't some unreal lag in actually getting the image to the display.
>>
>>3513317
>The only exception would be the 18/2, the oldest of the bunch, which most people regard as Fuji's worst performing lens optically.
IIRC optically it's good if not great but it has the worst AF of all XF lenses.
>>
>>3513317
>>3513336
18 f2 is my favorite
>>
>>3513336
In my experience its corner sharpness is definitely nothing to write home about, even at small apertures. That's what most people complain about I think. AF speeds are ok-ish, but obviously first gen Fuji.
But as I said I generally enjoyed the lens: the handling, size, but also its rendering are great. IMO it also looks really nice aesthetically, with the metal hood.
I do think it's a tad overpriced though.
>>
>>3513394
The hood looks cool but doubles the size of the smallish lens.
>>
>>3513023
55-140 f2.8 is king
>>
>>3513317
Well what I want to know is: is the $400 price difference worth it if I mostly shoot during the day? I live in a smallish town so mostly interested in lenses that are good to travel with. What I would like to do is stuff like picture related, would that still work with the f2.8 if I set it on a tripod?
>>
>>3513410
>shooting landscapes at f2.8
Wat, why would you do that?
>>
>>3513415
Not at I mean with the f2.8. I wonder if the 16mm f2.8 would be good in low light situations on a tripod as in the pic I uploaded
>>
>>3513410
>I mostly shoot during the day
If you shoot at f/8-11, both lenses should be practically indistinguishable.
>lenses that are good to travel with
Smaller size and lighter weight are both advantages of the f/2 series.
>What I would like to do is stuff like picture related, would that still work with the f2.8 if I set it on a tripod?
Absolutely. f/2.8 isn't that dark really, you'll probably be able to hand hold it even (in the circumstances of your picture).
If you'd want to shoot a lot of starscapes on the other hand, there'd be a much clearer advantage for the f/1.4.
>is the $400 price difference worth it
That's up to you to decide. If you say you want something good for travel, to shoot in good light, to take landscape style pictures, and would be able to purchase multiple lenses instead of just one f/1.4, I think the advantage lies pretty clearly with the f/2(.8) series.
>>
>>3513417
If you're shooting on a tripod then you're going to be doing long exposures. So it doesn't really matter what aperture your lens has, more the focal length is important. You'll be shooting long exposures at f11, not f1.4. It becomes more of a concern when you're shooting handheld as the lower the f-stop, the higher you can push your shutter speed for sharper photos.
>>
>>3512930
If you go for X-T30 you might want one of those arca swiss extra grips. I went from a D3 to an X-T1 and even that felt a little small until I added the handgrip. I would go for the T2, but I'm willing to sacrifice tech for ergonomics and usability and your tastes may differ.

Currently using Fuji XT-2 (with 23 f/1.4 and the 'kit lens') for photojournalism and filmmaking project/s.

It's an amazing piece of technology, but the stills quality is lacking if you compare it directly to a 5D Mark III. Maybe it's the full-frame versus 1.6x debate, but the slight difference in resolution is definitely noticeable.

That being said, in most other regards it is an amazing camera. I shoot 4K resolution F-Log video internally, and directly to Sandisk SD cards, and it looks amazing with grading.

The battery grip is pretty much mandatory because the ergonomics are not that great. I can shoot a day's worth of stills and videos (8-10 hours of usage on and off) and still have one battery full.

You're right that I am missing that 'pop' in the images. The one stop of aperture between FF and crop does result in a different image quality. Pic attached is around 1.4 or 2.0 on the XT-2.

My ideal setup for a future documentary project will be a Fuji X-H1 (200 Mbps 'Cinema 4K' with my 23 1.4), my current Fuji XT2 with the either the kit lens or the 35 1.4 for secondary angle, and then the GFX for portraiture, etc.

cause i don't want any nasty scratches. especially when i have it in a bag or something. i always put it back on.
>>
>>3513736

I am working with that kit now.

If you can manage, I would take both (again, if possible), but out of those two the zoom and image stabilisation for far outweighs the potential low-light capabilities of the 23 1.4.

I recommend getting a three stop ND filter so you can shoot around f/5.6 to f/11 as often as possible - in my experience that is peak sharpness and image quality for the 18-55.
>>
>>3513745
how much is 3 stop? ND8 ?
>>
>>3513768

Yes, it should be ND8. I have a Hoya ND8 on my 18-55 and it works well. It's not mandatory, because you can just crank your shutter speed really high to reduce exposure, but if you will record any 4K video you wont be able to reduce ISO below 800, and Shutter Speed will typically be stuck at 1/50, so aperture is your only exposure control.

How do you get into combat photojournalism. I'd love to know.
Nothing exciting happens in my country but photojournalism is my dream job
>>
>>3513778

I just went and started doing it. There was no special pathway for me. Found a region I was personally interested in, took a flight to that country, and just figured everything out. I know that's not helpful advice, but it's really how I did it, and have done it in this area for just over four years.

Now most newcomers will typically just hire a 'fixer' (someone who knows people in the area, knows stories to pursue, etc.) and just pay for their services, almost like a tour guide. There's very little real journalism involved unless you're exploring stories that you find yourself.

The beginning of a new conflict is when journalists/combat correspondents have the most freedom. As the conflict goes on (in my experience) it becomes more strict, and controlled. Lots of people get involved out of ego - they want to take photographs in body armour and play the part.

The reality of the work is frustrating and annoying the majority of the time. Locals will try to take advantage of you if you even give a hint that you're inexperienced (example, I was quoted $120 USD to make a trip by one guy, then a local taxi driver quoted me $40 USD for the same trip).

Plans change incredibly quickly, or you will spend weeks setting up an assignment, arrive, and find out the unit you're attached to or living with have changed your plans for you. Your gear might get broken, or you will get sick, or just plain physically and mentally fatigued and have no drive to work.

Budget for the following: Armour (Level IV plates, carrier, and a helmet) $500-750 USD. Decent first aid kit, $100 USD. Insurance (per month) $500-$1,000 USD (lots of people forge their documents or just are uninsured).

Freelancing is very, very hard, and you make fuck all money. It's basically an expensive hobby. That being said, I have had some amazing life experiences, and it has changed my life in good and bad ways.
>>
>>3513781

See reply here:

>>3513782
>>
>>3513782
So I take it youre a freelancer? Who do you sell your work to then?

How did you acquire body armour.
It's considered an Illegal firearm in Australia so I can't get it

Do you have a page I can contact you in the future? Thanks for the response
>>
>>3513800

I had the exact same issue... I bought armour in-country and stored it with a friend that I made in the military. Some journalism organisations will have armour that people can rent/loan, but you may need to be accredited with an outlet to achieve that.

I freelance, too, but I fund my work myself and never expect to profit, basically. If I make money back, great, but at this point I am paying for life experience and professional development in a very niche industry.

I typically email editors at all major outlets, or places I want to get at byline from. Expect to be ignored more often than not. Too many outlets are focused on contemporary content. Look at The Age for an example of what journalism in Australia is now...

Don't go into it with some sort of mantra, or ideology. I was very naive when I first stepped into a trench; after a while you see the reality of it all - journalists lie or misrepresent the truth, access is controlled and limited, parachute journalism is all too common, 'fake news' is real.

People I would now call my friends (I respect military veterans I embedded with more than I do any journalist) were killed or wounded.Sadly, they're political pawns. I went to funerals and broken homes. It has all been very eye-opening. One thing I learned is that nobody is truly objective.

Conflict correspondence is fulfilling, but you will burn out.

Use sony, am intrigued by Fuji. Seems like a good brand for easily taking snapshits - no offence intended. Maybe not the best for setting up a tripod for a nice preplanned landscape, though.

Was considering the XH1 because it's the only model with IBIS. Yes, it makes a huge difference. In my country, it costs about the same as a lightly used (<1-5k shutter) a7rii. Why would I get the XH1 over the a7rii?

Bretty boomer of me, but I can fit my pringle-can sized CF tripod into my waterbottle side pocket so I still carry one with me.

That's partially why I like IBIS. I bought into the meme that IBIS didn't matter until I bought a lens that has only 3 stops of IS but I can still shoot to like 1/4s without blur. That sidelined my tripod use significantly and saved me 30 seconds of setup and 30 seconds of put away.. Modern cameras can easily get 5+ stops of IS, including the XH1.
>>
I got a bonus at work today and sold my home theater sound system. How smart/stupid would it be to flip my 18-55 and replace it with the 16-55?
>>
>>3513904

2.8 aperture across the whole lens is pretty good, especially because you effectively already miss one stop of light on crop. It's 'heavier' (but I think it weighs nothing compared to most modern lenses). I'd go for it if I could do it easily, but you could also put that cash towards something else for your kit, or save the money.
>>
>>3513904
Honestly, do yourself a favour and put that bonus into something else. Ideally put it into travel. Gear can only do so much if you have nothing to photograph. Take the bonus and really think about somewhere you want to go and use the 18-55 you already have. You'll feel better for it. Gear lust is powerful though, I get it.

Have already booked all trips this year desu. I was thinking 16mm f2.8 since I don't have that focal length covered yet.

Funny story, I went to the zoo today to try out the 50-230 and there was this huge gorilla so I pulled out my XT-3 and that motherfucker jumped straight up and ran off. The guards bitched at me because the ape gets scared when telephoto lenses are pointed at him lmao speaking of the 50-230 I enjoy it but now hmmmmm maybe I would sell it off and buy a gray 55-200 for 500.
>>
>>3513941

Thought he was about to get the Harambe shoot...
>>
>>3513945
The photos came out excellent but it is a pretty dark lens and I shot some dolphins in the air but I think f11 is not good with high shutter speeds, even though the photo is sharp it is extremely grainy. Lens can be a bit soft at 230mm if the light conditions aren't good. Coming from Sony I am very surprised by the quality of these "cheap lenses" so far.
>>
>>3513958
Btw I figured out why the photo was so grainy, apparently I mixed up the ISO knob with the SS knob so instead of putting in a high shutter speed I actually put in a very high ISO lol
>>
>>3514417
I never use the dials anymore, I put my exposure comp dial into C and all others into A which allows you to control all the functions with the front or rear dial. I learned it in the Angry Photographer's Fuji Tips abd Tricks ezbook actually, it's just way faster and more efficient to tab through with the front dial than turning the knobs.
>>
>>3514420
Yeah I have to print that book I love that dude, I've been watching him non stop for the past couple of days.

On another note I tried out the 18-55 and stopped down to f.8 it is sharp enough for me, think that killed off my GAS for now however I will sell the 50-230 and replace it with the 55-200. 18-55 - 55-200 should be a great travel combo.
>>
>have the 18, 23, 35, and 50 f2 primes
>want a zoom
Should I go for the 50-200 since I already have the primes or should I go to like the kit lens or the 16-50 f2.8?
>>
>>3514881
The new 16-80.
>>
Are there any websites where people upload test photos of Fuji lenses? Would like to see some comparisons between the 16mm f2.8 vs 16mm f1.4
>>
>>3514935
Pixelpeeper usually has a lot of (user submitted) full size pictures organized per lens, don't know if they already have a tag for the new 16mm though
>>
>>3514962
...looks like they don't even have a category for the 16/1.4. Dunno if the site's dead maybe
so nvm
>>
Does the 16mm 2.8 make the XF18 obsolete?
>>
>>3514969
I love my 18mm
>>
Anyone have any experience with the difference between raw vs "lossless compressed" raw files other than size obviously? Using an xt2 if that makes a difference.
>>
>>3514935
Just search the hashtag for the lens on Instagram.
>>
>>3515142
What difference? You know what lossless means right?
I presume they might take a little longer to process in Lightroom or C1 due to the compression, but otherwise their raw information should be 100% identical.
>>
>>3514935
the 16mm f2.8 has terrible distortion. the 1.4 is one of the best lenses Fuji makes currently but costs about 3 times more

i think you should do that. love it like you love a woman, and tell him to suck my phone number from your asshole

Do silver lenses look bad? Could save a few hundred by buying one compared to black.

The fuji greyish silver looks so bad in photos but maybe an aftermarket lens hood could make it better.
>>
>>3515748
Who cares? If you can save a few hundred bucks to go silver, do it. It's a camera, not a fashion accessory.
>>
I fucking love my Fujifilm X-H1 and XF lenses.
>>
>>3488493
Sold all my Nikon gear and waiting for a good deal on a used X-T20 along with some used lens.
Which lens should I get first?
>>
>>3519028
23mm, 35mm or 50mm F2. Cheap, solid and good.

Why X-T20, is size a factor? You could buy the 18-55 zoom used to see what focal lengths you like and then sell it for the same amount you paid while switching to the lens or lenses mentioned before.
>>
Finally got a camera after many years of thinking about it. Got the X-T100 with the 15-45 kit, I already want to start my primes collection of 23,34 and 50 F2s please tell me reasons why not to do this because I have no will power and will throw money on them soon
>>
>>3519526
It's a good plan, maybe use the 15-45 as long as possible though. Note what kind of focal length you use most by looking at your statistics in Lightroom then act accordingly.drt If you use 23, 35 or 45 overwhelmingly it'll be best to save and buy the f1.4 version. You'll get more out of it. It's better to make educated photography purchases based on your usage so you don't have lenses gathering dust.
>>
>>3519526
The 15-45 is actually really good for a plasticy kit zoom and punches far above its weight. It's also super lightweight and when collapsed smaller than even the lenses you mentioned, so the primes aren't just a straight upgrade.
It can be nice to use a prime though, ironically eliminating focal length as a decision point and focusing on just one perspective can be quite a liberating feeling sometimes. As the other anon suggested look at the EXIF data of your photos: what do you shoot the most, and (maybe even more importantly) which pictures do you like the best? Pick the prime around that focal length and try it out. Could be that you end up preferring the flexibility of a zoom, nothing wrong with that.

Beware of Gear Acquisition Syndrome, seriously. Do not just "collect the whole set" for the heck of it. When you feed GAS it only grows stronger.

Any thoughts on the 27mm f/2.8 or is it a meme lens
>>
>>3519670
iq is good and af is decent. Its selling points are the great portability and unusual focal length. For some people that 41mm is the sweet spot.
>>
I bought a new Fujifilm X-T20 and I don't know what the fuck I'm doing. Any good guides?
>>
>>3519705

>>
>>3519670
It's the smallest pancake lens for maximum portability. No aperture ring and it is prone to getting stuck mechanically as it is also the cheapest lens.
>>
>>3519767
How's the quality or character, or am I wasting my time and need the f/1.4 or f/2 primes?
>>
Is the xpro2 a meme? I've heard great things about the hybrid vf but is it better than the evf on the xt2?
>>
>>3519797
The camera itself is a great-to-use thing, but the HVF is probably going to be something you never use if you never used ROVF before.
Get the X-T2 if you like the formfactor better and/or care about video.
>>
>>3519797
>>3519925
I like the ovf but sadly use the evf almost exclusively since I’m trash at photography
>>
Recently got Fujinon 18-55/2.8-4
Found it noticeable less sparh on wide angle at f2.8. Even stopped down, wide angle sharpness is lower. Is it my copy or normal behaviour?
>>
>>3520008
I haven't used it at f2.8 yet but f.8 is pretty damn sharp in the center. It gets a bit softer in the extreme corners but unless you are pixel peeping you won't notice. Reviews I read indicate the best sharpness between 23mm and 35mm.
>>
>>3519670
it's nice, better than the lens cap

Great lens, autofocus motor is pretty loud and slower than the 23/35/50 f2. But it's older so of course it is.

X-T3 with XF 23mm f/1.4 + XF 35 f/1.4. %%But I want a WR versions both of them similar to XF 16mm f/1.4 WR.%%
>>
I have a question about the X series compacts.
Can the touch screen functionality be disabled?
>>
>>3521145
Can't speak for any of the other cameras, but on my X-E3: yes. (I presume the others are the same though)
>>
>>3519945
It's faster and easier to frame with the OVF but you have to accept you are going to get over under underexposed photos once in a while. As a walkaround lens I compose better photos with the OVF as you can see the outside the lines of the final photo. OVF is easy to forget it even exists but it's fun to use.
>>
>>3520008
I think that's normal behavior. That was my main reason for getting the XF 16-55/2.8. The 16-55/2.8 is actually sharper than most of the primes (especially the 16/1.4).
>>
>>3519768
its one of the sharpest lenses for fuji tbqh
>>
>>3520008
try to disable OIS and do a test shot.
