Dear Valued customers

Thank you for using Fujifilm products.

We have received feedback from a few customers that the iris blades did not move correctly when the iris ring was rotated.

Therefore, our technical staff will inspect your MK18-55mm lens with the following mentioned serial numbers free of charge. For more information, please contact your shop or dealer where you purchased the MK18-55mm lens to make arrangements to have your MK18-55mm lens sent for inspection.

We do apologize to any of our loyal customers that may be affected by this inconvenience. Please rest assured of Fujifilm’s absolute commitment to quality and service excellence.

Fujifilm GFX 50s and Eric Bouvet in Mosul, Iraq :: Photojournalism in Warzones with Fujifilm GFX


Fujifilm GFX 50s for Photojournalism

When Fujifilm developed the Fujifilm GFX 50s, they had the following target in mind: professional photographers, who shoot fashion, commercials, portraits (in studio or outdoor), landscape and architecture.

But I remember a Fujifilm Manager, who said that, once they started the “GFX challanges series” and the camera was given to selected photographers for beta testing, the feedback was so good, that they started to believe the Fujifilm GFX 50s might also be quite good for other photographic genres, such as street photography… and apparently also photojournalism.

Eric Bouvet

Long time FR-readers will remember, how I mentioned the first time Eric Bouvet, when he covered the war in the Ukraine with his X-T1 and X-Pro1. Well, he’s right now in Mosul, Iraq, and this time he documents everything with his Fujifilm GFX 50s.

First of all, I wish Eric all the best while documenting the war in Mosul and to have soon a safe flight back home.

And once back, we really look forward to his images, which will for sure enrich an already stunning portfolio that you can check out at his website here. We are first of all curious to see the stories he will bring home and share with us… and also to see how the Fujifilm GFX 50s performed in the arguably most challenging of all environments.

Eric is sharing the first images and videos from Mosul taken with his GFX on his instagram account. Make sure to check it out here. WARNING: It’s a war, and Eric is right in there. So you might see images and videos that could hurt your sensibility.

And feel free to join & enjoy the Fujifilm GFX facebook group. We are more than 10,200 right now. There is also a Fujifilm GFX facebook page, with news and rumors tailored to the GFX. You won’t miss a single GFX tidbit by following it.

Fujifilm GFX Images

Sebastian Lee shared here:  The 32-64 wasn’t quite wide enough to get the composition I wanted so had to shoot a pano. Didn’t go crazy, came out to right at 12,096×7585 though my 5K iMac I think was starting to melt processing the pano haha. Eight 1 second exposures with lots of overlap.

Fujifilm X-T2 Image Printed on Huge Billboard for Nike :: Fujinon XF 50mmF2 WR Vs. XF 56mmF1.2


Anyone who Questions X-T2 APS-C images…

… can’t do big prints?

In these days, where we are all stunned by the resolution of the Fujifilm GFX, Sean Marc Lee shows that the 24MP APS-C can already print big. In fact, he shoot an image for Nike with his X-T2 and it was printed on a huge billboard. He used the X-T2 w/ 35mm f2.2 1/125.

So yes, also APS-C Fuji’s can get the job done :) You can see the image at Marc’s instagram here. Also from the same campaign, check out in Chinese hypebeast.

Fujinon XF 50mm F2 WR Vs. XF 56mm F1.2

Jordan just shared his XF50mmF2 Vs. XF56mmF1.2 comparison at admiringlight here:

both are very good lenses. The 56mm f/1.2 is sharper at similar apertures over most of the frame, though the 50mm f/2 is a touch sharper at the edges at f/2. Bokeh is a fairly close race, and as both are quite sharp, and both have nice renderings, I’d consider the other factors when choosing between the two.”
