REVIEW: Samyang 300mm f/6.3 mirror lens for Fuji X + IN STOCK: X-M1 at AmazonDE/ITA

 photo samy_zps24a92968.png

A FR-reader shared with us via rumor box the link to a short review and some sample shots of the Samyang 300 mirror lens for Fuji X. The lens is a bit smaller than the XF 18-55mm, built mostly out of high quality plastic and the focus ring rotation is very smooth and well-damped. “Close focus performance is pretty good, without a trace of chromatic distortion and good clarity edge-to-edge. […] Overall image contrast is slightly low compared to the excellent Fuji 18-55 zoom, but this is easily corrected during post processing.” Check it out at dpreview.

FR-reader zone: “X100S, you Rock”, X-PRO1 in Florence and still in love with the X100

Kaushik

FR-reader Kaushik (his facebook) shared with FR his review of the X100S. Check out the PROS and CONS list. He also posted a 7-point wish list for the X100S successor at Amazon here. (Here are some videos which he did with X100S: video 1, 2, 3)

Nath

In the last FR-reader zone Meeno asked us to “let the love affair with the X100S begin“. But FR-reader Nath remains loyal to the good old X100 and shared on the FR-facebook wall the following image, saying: “I love the way the Fuji X100 handles light! This shot was taken just after sunrise on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. f/16 – 1/500 sec – ISO 3200 (I had Auto ISO set for the earlier hours of low light and forgot it was on. However it exposed this image perfectly…clever camera).

“Dear Patrick, I love photography and in this period I took with my Fuji X-Pro1, with the adapter for Leica lenses. These photos were taken in Florence, a wonderful city that lends itself well to street photography. I am sending you the link to my flickr account
