Ibelux 40mm F0.85 + Mitakon F0.95 Reviews + 7Artisans 35mm f/2 :: Best Fujinon Lenses in Late 2017 :: XF60 No Poor-Mans 56 (X-Mount Lens Zone)

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

7Artisans Will Launch New Fujifilm X Mount Lenses This Year

via Mirrlessrumors via Richard Wong

7Artisans contacted me and told me about their upcoming product roadmap which they haven’t announce before. They have three new lenses coming out before end of this year:

1. 12mm f/2.8 lens for cropped sensor mirrorless cameras: Sony E, Canon EOS-M, Fuji X and Micro Four Thirds.

2. 35mm f/1.2 lens for cropped sensor mirrorless cameras: Sony E, Canon EOS-M, Fuji X and Micro Four Thirds.

3. 35mm f/2 lens for Leica M Mount cameras. And unlike their 50mm f/1.1 lens (review link in this post), the aperture lens of the 35 f/2 will have clicks!!! The de-clicked aperture ring on the 50 f/1.1 lens is probably the biggest complaint I’ve heard about this lens and I did contact them while I was working on the review and suggested them to consider making a clicked version for their future M lenses. So it’s great to hear they are listening to customers!!

No price or other information about these lenses yet, but they promised they’ll let me know as soon as they are available (which can’t be too far away as it’s already Nov!)
So stay tuned!!

7artisan recently launched the 50mmF1.1 for Fuji X. All 7artisan articles on FR here.

The Only 4 Fujifilm X Lenses You Need :: 7Artisans 50mmF1.1 on X-Pro2 :: XF50mm Reviews :: Samyang 50/1.2 Vs Fujinon 56/1.2 (Lens Zone)

Checking out the 7Artisans 50mm f:1.1 for Leica M-mount lens at J.L. Williams youtube. In his email to me, J.L. Williams writes: “I also tried it out on my Fuji X-Pro 2 camera and did a brief comparison to the Fuji 56mm f/1.2. One key finding: the lens gives an interesting look, but it doesn’t play nicely with Fuji’s focus assist features in backlit or side-lit conditions…”

A Review-holic X-mount Lens Roundup

Hi all,

my name is Patrick…

… and I have a problem…

… I’m a review-holic.

Just for buying a simple multi-tool like my Leatherman Juice CS4 I’m able to read reviews for an entire day (or 2) about it.

But things start to get really bad, when I want to buy a new lens. In that case, I spend really many weeks pondering about it, reading and watching reviews until late in the night.

I don’t know why I do that.

Maybe it’s because I always read reviews that say “Fujinon glass is so perfectly awesome“, and something in me tells me “impossible… where is the catch“. It seems like sometimes I’m not really satified in my research, until I find some problems, bugs, downside… something negative.

I went to my therapist for that problem, and he told me that it is normal.

He told me, that since the very beginning of the human existence, the “pessimistic” thinking prevailed over the “optimistic” one: it was a strategy to survive in the wild. Happy people, who didn’t care about anything and run lighthearted through the jungle got eaten by some bear. But those, who remained in the cave, suspicious, pessimistic and overly careful, those guys survived… and we still have a bit of their DNA in us.

This is why it takes me so long to decide to buy a new Fujinon glass… because I spend infinite hours and days suspiciously looking for the “catch“… and it’s pretty damn hard to find one when it comes to Fujinon glass.

My therapist told me I should accept it. I just should enjoy the beautiful and perfect Fujinon glass. And he also recommended me to share the joy of shooting Fuji with other people.

And therefore… here you have it guys, another awesome X-mount lens roundup :)
