The Fujifilm X-T5 is the culmination of five generations of evolution in Fuji’s X-Series lineup of mirrorless cameras. Released in November 2022 — nearly a decade after the release of the original X-T1 — the X-T5 features a revolutionary 40-megapixel X-Trans 5 HR sensor, X-Processor 5 AI image processing, and a more compact version of the beloved classic X-Series camera body. This makes it an optimal choice for landscape photography.

Weighing in at just 557 grams, the Fujifilm X-T5 is a lightweight powerhouse. The combination of the smaller size, weight, and high resolution 40-megapixel sensor is a joy to use and travel with. I’ve been enjoying the convenience of shooting landscape photography with such a compact setup. I can pack the X-T5 and several Fujifilm lenses into a small backpack to create stunning high-resolution images.

Fujifilm X-T5 for Landscape Photography

Higher Resolution and Increased Dynamic Range

Fujifilm has included several improvements to the X-T5 which make it an amazing camera for landscape photography. The all-new 5th generation X-Trans 5 HR CMOS sensor features an enhanced image processing algorithm that boosts resolution, without compromising signal to noise ratio. In addition to its enhanced image processing algorithm, the X-T5 also features an improved pixel structure, which allows light to be captured more efficiently. This also enables a lower base ISO value of 125. The combination of these two technologies offers increased dynamic range and higher resolution, both of which are highly desired features for landscape photographers.

Photons to Photos: Fujifilm X-T5 Dynamic Range Sensor Measurement Data

Photons to Photos has published their dynamic range sensor measurement data for the Fujifilm X-T5.

It’s interesting to see that despite sharing the same sensor and processor, the X-T5 is not exactly on par in terms of dynamic range to the Fujifilm X-H2.

You can access the data and make your own comparisons at Photons to Photos here.

Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 Reviews – The Praise Continues!

The Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 keeps up getting excellent reviews.

Down below is a video by Damian and also Opticallimits posted its review.

Opticallimits gives it a “highly recommended” and concludes:


The Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 PRO XF has two main competitors within the Fujifilm camp – the new Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 R WR and the 90mm f/2 R WR. The 90mm f/2 R WR is an outstanding lens and the new 56mm f/1.2 is certainly no slouch either. However, both are substantially more expensive. The Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R WR has a linear AF motor so if you need a really fast AF, it may be a better choice.


[…] The f/1.2 setting is perfectly usable with a very sharp center quality and pretty good corners/borders. The center is tack sharp at f/1.6. The outer image field doesn’t improve that much when stopping down but they have a nice peak quality at f/5.6 if you want to push it. Lateral CAs as well as image distortions are basically absent. Surprisingly, axial CAs (LoCAs) are also very low at f/1.2 and gone from f/2 already. We also didn’t notice any purple fringing at large aperture settings. The vignetting is a bit on the high side at f/1.2 but image-auto correction can mostly fix this for you. Besides being capable of producing a very shallow depth-of-field in the first place, the bokeh is also very nice, especially in the image background. Out-of-focus highlights are a bit too prone to producing “cat eyes” though.
Another highlight of the Viltrox lens is its high build quality which is easily on the level of the best Fujinon lenses. The lens feels reassuringly sturdy thanks to a metal body and the inner focusing system. The added weather-sealing also illustrates the high ambitions that Viltrox has with this lens. […] The AF may not be the fastest on the planet but it does a decent job.

The Viltrox is becoming a force to be reckoned with now. Given the degree of refinement of the AF 75mm f/1.2 PRO XF, they are now truly competing with the big boys – at a much lower price. While not perfect in every aspect, it is impressive what the lens can do for you straight from f/1.2. As such, it receives our “highly recommended” badge..

DPRTV Declares Fujifilm GFX100S Best Camera for Landscape Photography

Which are the best cameras for landscape photography?

DPRTV looks at three different price points and makes its recommendations.

There is also a Fujifilm camera among the winners, the Fujifilm GFX100S, in the “money is no object” category.

DPRTV says:

There is no disputing that the Fujifilm GFX medium format cameras are the best option for landscape. Our choice is the Fujifilm GFX100S. What is not to love: you get that amazing 100MP sensor clearly well suited for landscape photography. We also prefer the GFX100S body over the GFX100 because it is more compact. You get nice ergonomics. The Fuji style tilt screen is certainly nice for landscape when you are at awkward angles and it is just easier to travel with.

Fujifilm also has an excellent line of lenses, including the GF20-35mmF4, which is very rare in medium format to have an ultra wide range like that and it’s also a very sharp lens.

It has IBIS and it’s very effective.

If you need more megapixel, you can shoot in multi-shot and get 400MP images.

There is simply no better pick for landscape photography than the Fujifilm GFX100S, if money is no object.
