    Fuji Charlene Winfred and her journey with the 35mm 1.4

    The 35 1.4 is my favorite Fuji lens. I had the f2 version for a while, but I always preferred the look of the 1.4. I have a bunch of lenses, prime and zoom, all are good, but the 35 gets the most use. If I could only keep one, the 35 1.4 would be it.

    Fuji X-H1 further musings

    I picked up a new X-H1 with battery grip during the recent sale. I still have a couple of X-T1s, I'll probably sell the black body and keep the silver one as a back up body. I like to use primes, including a large collection of legacy lenses. The IBIS works really well with these lenses...

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    I saw the ad, and called immediately. I doubt it would have lasted the day. One of my best finds, ever!

    Fuji Nikkor on Fujifilm X-T1

    I picked up a Nikon FM with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 and a gorgeous Soligor 70-210 3.5 for $45 on the local FB Marketplace page. It really looks good on the Fuji. I took a few handheld shots in the garden to see how this combo performs. I'm looking forward to having some quality time...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I've been looking for this lens on ebay for a while now, it's hard to find a nice copy under $100. I saw one the other day, attached to a nice Pentax Spotmatic with a $30 buy it now price. The seller knew nothing about cameras, but the pictures looked good, so I took a chance. It showed up...

    Fuji Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 on X-T1

    I picked this lens up yesterday for $30, I haven't had a lot of time to play with it, but I think I'm going to like it. Quick shots, taken with a monopod in low light to demonstrate DOF. I'll have to get used to focusing this lens, these old eyes don't work as well as they did 40 years...

    Fuji Let's Talk 18mm f2.0

    I picked my 18 f2 up used for $200, in great shape. I love it, it stays on one of my X-T1 bodies all the time. I like the close focus distance of 7 inches, makes the lens a lot more versatile. It may not be Fuji's sharpest lens, but it's sharper than my Canon 28mm f2.8, especially in the...

    Fuji Long time Fuji user

    I've been using Fuji cameras for a long time. I bought the ST705 new in 1977, and the AX-5 in 1982 when my son was born. Fuji built excellent lenses back then, too. Both cameras still work well, I usually run a roll or two of film through each one once a year.

    Fuji New to me 50mm f2.0 - Very Nice!

    I've been into airguns since I was a teenager, a long time ago. There was always a Beeman, Air Rifle Headquarters, or Great Lakes Airgun catalog close at hand. I sold some guns a while ago, but I still have 30+. My current favorites are an FWB300s, and an HW55MM, oldies fro sure, but very...

    Fuji 2018 Detroit Auoto Show

    There were two Mustangs used, one for the chase scenes, and another for the beauty shots. The car in the pictures is the Beauty shot car. The other car was really beat up during filming and was supposed to be scrapped.

    Fuji 2018 Detroit Auoto Show

    My best friend's dad bought a new, Caspian blue, Mustang convertible in 1964. I was 8 years old at the time, went on to work for GM as an electrician for 41 years, and I still love Mustangs.

    Fuji 2018 Detroit Auoto Show

    I took my X100S along with us to the NAIAS on Tuesday. This is the car Steve McQueen drove in the movie, 'Bullitt', made in 1968. One of my favorite films. My grandson loved all the cars, as long as they were red. ;-) I want this one..... Or this one.... The Suburu on the...

    Fuji Tamron making lenses in Fuji X mount and Sony E mount?

    I bought my first Tamron lens in 1977, a 135 f2.8 adaptall in Fuji ST mount. I still have it and use it, works like a champ. I've used many Tamron zooms over the years, mostly from the SP line, my favorites are the 70-210 f3.5 and 35-80 f2.8-3.8. I used a 35-105 f2.8 Tamron SP on my Maxxum 9000...

    Fuji 35mm - 1.4 or 2?

    I have both, not much difference optically, especially in the middle apertures, and the f2 does focus faster and is weather resistant. The f2 is the logical choice, but my f1.4 is always in the camera bag, the f2 gets used if the weather is iffy. The f1.4 is probably the sharpest lens I have...

    Fuji When shooting vertically...

    I shoot overhand, too. It makes more sense to rotate the camera clockwise, puts the flash on top, but it feels awkward.

    Fuji I've been researching Fuji cameras for awhile and I want one, need advice

    I took this picture of the moon with a Vivitar Series 1 600mm Solid Cat on an X-Pro1 body. The screen was not only easy to see, it approximates exposure as well. The only problem I had that night was wind, and a not so steady tripod.

    Fuji Zhong Yi Optics 20mm f/2.0 super macro

    I still have my old Spiratone focusing rail I used back in the 70's, Looks like I should get it out and see how it works with my new cameras. I used it all the time, with a bellows back in my film days.

    Fuji Coming soon...

    Looking forward to the new book, I enjoyed 'F8 and Been There'. On a side note, I love the Kaweko fountain pen. I have several, to go with the other 300 or so fountain pens in my collection.

    I thought about an XT10, but my wife said 'How many cameras do you need, anyway?'. I was about to ask her why she needed a hundred pairs of shoes, but thought better of it. ;-)
