    Fuji Why do you like/love/hate the Fuji XPro cameras?

    I have a X Pro1 that's kinda' beat but it still makes decent images. My problem with it is that I end up carrying ND filters in my pocket when I go out because I often run out of shutter speeds and/or ISOs when I want to compress the DoF. I didn't click well with the X Pro2. The images...

    Fuji Showcase 7Artisans 25mm F1.8 XF Mount

    I just picked up the 7a 35mm f1.2 for Fuji and sadly I'm afraid it's headed back to B&H. The 35mm renders a nice image but is soft from f2.8 to f1.2. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to try another copy just stick the 25mm and the 55mm. . . . David

    Fuji Showcase 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 Lens for Fuji

    To be honest I'm not sure how I tripped on this lens. But after using it for a few days I'm very glad I did. This lens retails for $119. and not unlike 7a's 25mm f1.8, ($79.), it seems to offer some very serious image quality for an exceptional price. The build quality appears to be very...

    'Decided to try a "short" neck strap for my RX100 M5. I wanted something that would work well for hikes and snowshoeing. Longer straps tend to make the camera bounce around for me, even a compact camera like the RX100. I first tried a wrist strap but found pulling the camera out of a jacket...

    Lightroom Classic CC "enhance details" - what does it do??

    I just tried out the "enhance details" with a very sharp image I made with the X100F. At 3X magnification in Lightroom its very sharp. With the "enhance details" used on the same image I can see no appreciable difference. I did this using a 15" MacBook Pro running an i7 processor, 16gigs of...

    Hi Mike - Well, keeping in mind that the Summarit series are the "entry-level" Leica m-mount lenses, :rolleyes-74:, I did pretty well with the price. The new versions run around $1,995. A great lens. Super sharp. It writes very nice images. I bought it to use primarily on my CL but I also...

    Fuji Interesting read about the 35mm 1.4

    The XF35/1.4 is an amazing lens. It most certainly is sharp enough, even wide open. However, equally important is the way it writes an image. I left Canon full size sensor cameras, at least in part, because of the way my images came out on an X Pro1 with the 35/1.4. It's one of the few...

    Fuji Manual focuser has it pretty well with Fuji?

    I use an X-E2 most of the time with my 7a 25mm. Admittedly, with full magnification on when focusing there are some wobbles visible but nothing that keeps me from getting an accurate focus most of the time. At least no more so than with a Summarit or Zeiss lens on my CL. Again for $79. the 7a...

    Fuji Showcase 7Artisans 25mm F1.8 XF Mount

    Acknowledging the amount of snow we have here in northern Vermont, I have absolutely no idea where the leaves came from. However, I thought the texture of last night's snow fall and the bit of color in the leaves on our front porch made for a possible image. 7a 25mm f1.8, X-E2, from an RAF...
