Some interesting Fuji news from the CP+ show.

Share

The big show in Yokohama started but there is no really big news this year. No camera manufacturer really launched something extraordinary new (No FF DSLR, no new Mirrorless camera). So let’s see what happened around the Fuji world. On top you can see the image of the Kipon Tilt Shift adapter to use with Nikon or Hasselblad lenses on Fuji X cameras (Source: DC.watch).

And here are two of the three new Zeiss lenses that will be on market in April-May. As you know we will have the 12mm f/2.8, 32mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/2.8 with a price of around 1.000 Euro.

And let’s end with a new Fuji product that has nothing to do with cameras but it shows how innovative the company can be: Fujifilm’s flexible Beat speaker diaphragm lets us roll up the rhythm (Engadget).

    Do you know if the Zeiss lenses have a linear autofocus motor

  • Gunston

    Zeiss is good at MF lens, not sure about this time

    • Gunston

      better to have the firmware update with focus peaking so we would more happy to use MF lenses, make the legacy of lenses a better choice.

      • Ryan

        there will be no FW with focus peaking. ever. it uses PDAF….yet somehow sony can do it…

        • u

          Focus peaking doesn’t use PDAF. Digital split image does. You’ve mixed it up.

    IMO the image of the 55-200 and 10-24 was more interesting. :)

    This is even more interesting, can’t wait to buy it:

    X mount, presumably AF, can’t wait for the X-pro2 with decent AF, but even MF should work awesomely.

    Excuse my ignorance but why would someone be interested in the Zeiss 32mm 1.8 when there’s an excellent Fuji 35mm 1.4 ? What’s so special about Zeiss lenses compared to Fuji’s?

    • u

      We’ll see when first resolution tests pop up. Zeiss might or might not be sharper. Considering the fact that it will be about twice as expensive as Fuji’s 35mm and a bit slower at f/1.8 and made by Zeiss — it should be.

    • Cyberoutlaw

      Exactly. Fuji’s XF lenses are perfectly adequate. The roadmap indicates a 56mm f/1.4 and a 23mm f/1.4 on the horizon, in addition to the 35mm already available. I have the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 for the Sony eMount, and while it’s a fantastic lens, it’s not worth double the price of a comparable XF lens.
