Fujifilm X100F, Limitation and Liberation :: Best (and Cheap) X100F Accessories :: Is it as Good as it Looks? (X100F Roundup)

Fujifilm X100F

The X100 line is and remains my forbitten dream.

And I had a hard time recently to decide between the Fujifilm X100F and the Fujifilm X-E3. I went for the X-E3 and added the 27mm to it, trying to emulate the compactness of the X100F.

But still I miss the leaf shutter, the hybrid viewfinder, the build in ND-filter, the combined ISO/Shutter dial and last but not least, the incredibly sexy look of the X100F. And with WCL-X100 and TCL-X100 the X100F is a flexible mini-system that would cover most of my photographic needs.

The Fujifilm X100F follows the philosophy: limitation is liberation, or less is more.

So let there be another X100F zone today…. while I’m driving home from Prague in the night, on roads white of snow. What a fun drive :)

After Adorama, now also BHphoto has the Godox X-Pro F trigger available for pre-order here.

BHphoto expects to ship it in mid-January.

This trigger is a must have for those of you, who invested into the Godox system, as it “eclipses all previous triggers for UI and control access“, as Damien Lovegrove told us here,

Why I Bought Fujifilm X-E3 (and not X-T20, X100F, X-H1)… and Why All this Hate for XF27mm? – FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Share

I’m packing. I’m leaving. A long car ride all to way to Prague is waiting for me.

But before I leave, here is a blog post about why I bought the X-E3, XF27mm and XF10-24, as well as some initial feedback… sadly also something negative amongst it.

But first… make sure to follow our Fujifilm X-E facebook group.

LensTip Review

UPDATE: Jonas Rask in the comments: “Converted from RAW. No crop, no vignettecorrection. They obviously tested a faulty lens. The lens I tested back in september had close to zero vignette, if any.”

Lenstip just published theri full review of the XF80mm Macro lens.

It is a lens with a long list of Pro’s and only 1 negative point. Usually Lenstip would assign the “Editor’s Choice” badge, but they consider the vignetting issue a “serious flaw”, hence no “editor’s choice”.

Let us know in the comments what your experience with the XF80mm is.

The Fujinon XF 80 mm f/2.8 LM OIS WR Macro is a very sharp lens with an excellent autofocus unit and very efficient image stabilization. In experienced hands it will perform admirably, never letting its owner down.

With such significant dimensions of the lens, I think its huge vignetting level is a serious flaw. There were also several issues which don’t exactly fit the list of cons but they spoilt the overall image nevertheless. The lens should have had a smaller resolution difference between the centre and the edge of the frame (a typical and desirable effect in the case of a macro device) and performed against bright light a tad better.”
