Ibelux 40mm F0.85 + Mitakon F0.95 Reviews :: Best Fujinon Lenses in Late 2017 :: XF60mm No Poor-Mans 56/1.2 (X-Mount Lens Zone)

Share

Fujifilm X-shooters have a few ultra fast X-mount third party lens options, such as the Mitakon 35/0.95 and the Ibelux 40/0.85. But how do they perform?

Well, there are many reports already shared on FujiRumors, such as Jonas Rasks’ Mitakon 35/0.95 review. And today I want to add a few more reports, also about the second generation Ibelux 40mm/0.85, the currently fastest lens you can buy in Fuji X mount, and which is no longer a “HandeVision” but a “Kipon” product, as reported by dc.watch here

National Geographic Declares Fujifilm X-T2 Best Overall Compact Travel Camera 2017… Top 10 Ranking Includes X-T20 and X100F

Share

The end of 2017 is approaching, so get ready for many “Top gear of the year” and similar articles appearing on the web. So let’s start, this time with National Geographic, who listed their Top 10 compact cameras for travels.

This year, there are 3 Fuji cameras in the ranking, the Fujifilm X-T2, the X100F and the X-T20 (in 2015 Nat Geo awarded 2 Fuji cameras, the X-T1 and X100T, as reported here).

Read the whole article “Top 10 Compact Cameras for Travelers” at nationalgeographic here and click on the product link in the list below for specs & price:

About the X-T2 they write:

The X-T2 has everything one would want in a professional DSLR in a APS-C mirrorless camera. The combination of quality manual dials to control settings, speed of image processing, the amazing line lenses and the build quality make this camera such a pleasure to use that many professionals now use this camera as their main system. You simply cannot go wrong with the X-T2 as a high end travel camera; it’s an all-star, all-around team player that just won’t quit or let you down, no matter where your travels take you.”

However, in the features list of the X-T2 and X-T20 they mention the “five-axis image stabilization“. Now, Fujifilm has arguably the best optical lens image stabilization system on the market, but so far, IBIS is something that will come… in a not so distant future ;) .

Anyway, do you agree with this list?

Sure, the Fujifilm X-T2 has weather sealing, so definitely a nice to have feature on travels. On the other hand, nothing can beat the simplicity and lightness of travelling with the X100F. And coupled with the WCL-X100 and TCL-X100, the X100F is a wonderful mini-system with leaf shutter and build-in ND-filter, that makes it so much more versatile than “just” for street photography.

But let’s see what you think about it :)

Profoto Air Remote Trigger for Fujifilm to be Released December 18

Share

Profoto Fujifilm Support

  • September 2016 here: a trusted source told us that Profoto will support Fujifilm in 2017
  • September 2017 here: Fujifilm and Profoto announced cooperation to bring TTL and HSS to the Fuji system. Shortly after, Profoto officially said on Instagram that the Profoto A1 is “coming soon”.

According to Patrick La Roque here, the Fujifilm version of the Air Remote Trigger will be released December 18.

The A1 doesn’t do TTL with Fuji you say? Now it does: the Fujifilm version of the Air Remote trigger is a reality. Not out yet (damn it) but December 18 has been set as the official release date.”

The Fuji version of the Profoto Air TTL is available to some for testing. Check out the video at Ferry Knijn Fotografie Youtube, which has been shared 3 days ago, and shows the Profoto trigger working just fine on the Fujifilm GFX.

Thanks to the two FR-readers for the links ;)

Adorama has a dedicated Profoto A1 presentation page here.

As reported here, Elinchrom triggers for Fujifilm should come in 2018.
