X-PRO1, X-E1 and X100
Massimiliano and Donato from riflessifotografici.it posted some nice shots. The first one, Massimiliano, took his X-PRO1 and walked through the streets of Naples (translated version), while Donato, with the X-E1, shot some portrait images using ambient light (translated version)… and if you want become a better photographer, riflessifotografici offers some courses (in Italian). Choose the course you’d like (basic, advanced or workshops). Start to learn more about photography and to shoot even more beautiful images.
Visit Sean Lee’s website to see his shots with the X-E1 and the X-100.
“It’s a wish list come true!” Focus peaking, Split image focusing, the AF button on the right side… and one desire: let a magic firmware swap all this improvements to the X-E1 / X-PRO1. It’s like Fuji’s next generation cameras. “An X-Pro2 with this new hybrid phase/contrast AF system has the potential for serious disruption. I’d most probably sell the X-Pro1 in a heartbeat for this upgrade.” This are just some thoughts extracted from laroquephoto.com (read here)
Now that he sold the looser of his trinity comparison (the X-PRO1), Alexander put the brand new 14mm on his X-E1. Here are his first impressions.
Here is the link to Roel’s 14mm test. Lot of PROS and very very few CONS… and he confirms what Rico already said in here: almost distortion free!
Will it be wide enough? Mike Kobal’s answer can be read here. Distortion free, fast but the image stabilisation could be better. This are just some of the PROS and CONS he noticed.
Metabones Speed Booster adapter gives lenses an extra f/stop and nearly full frame focal lengths on APS-C sensors. Mat Gallagher explains how it works and posted some sample images here at dslrnewsshooter.com.
MJR linked this site in the comments. Metabones Speed Booster + FujiFilm X-E1 + Zeiss CP.2 35mm T2.1.
