    If only there was a sigma 18-35 1.8 Art for the X-mount… I would then only need one prime: The 90mm.

    My case is, I’m with Nikon dx right now but I always wanted to be Fuji. I can afford the sigma 18-35 for Nikon but I can’t afford all the fuji primes (18, 23, 35). I want the sigma ASAP but if I buy it, I will be forced to stay with Nikon due to the investment :/. Sigma and fuji, hurry up!

    • John Griggs

      I’m with you on that 18-35 1.8. That would be awesome on Fuji X.

    • Peter

      Since that 18–35 is designed an SLR lens with a flange distance that accounts for a mirror box, it would actually make more sense to have an active adapter with AF capabilities so that the Nikon version would be usable on the Fuji instead. I know there is an adapter with AF translation for using Canon lenses on Sony, supposedly with near native AF-speed, so we should maybe be bugging that company to create an active adapter for using Nikon lenses on Fuji X instead.

      • Chris

        E mount is open to manufactures for free. Never heard of such things about other mounts. But even if you can buy one now, it would cost over $300 USD and weights around 300g. There is really no point in doing so.

        • Peter

          Manufacturers have reverse engineered the AF/lens protocols for ages, which is why we have third party AF lenses in the first place. Aslo, a Fuji version of the Sigma lens would have to have the AF communication built-in as well, so they would have to reverse engineer the protocol anyway.

          I don’t see why an adapter would weigh 300g since it wouldn’t have glass in it, only a circuit with a processor that converts between the two communication protocols. The Sony/Canon adapter certainly doesn’t weigh that much. It’s almost entirely a software problem.

          Also, even $300 would still be pretty cheap relatively speaking if it allows you to use your $5000–$10000 investment of existing SLR lenses and use the Fuji X cameras as backups for an SLR system or use them in parallel and quickly use a certain lens on the Fuji. Where size and weight is a concern, you’d of course go exclusively with dedicated mirrorless lenses (which the Sigma 18-35, which this discussion was about, is not).

          • Chris

            However with adapters your camera is around 650-700g. D750 is about 850g and it takes 1200 shots before battery is out. I won’t get Fuji in this case. And you don’t need to worry about handling and weather seal and such.

          • Peter

            Sure, but keep in mind that a dedicated X-mount version would also have to include the material to cover the flange distance difference, so you’d essentially have a built-in adapter and the X-mount version would weigh more than the DSLR counterparts. If you want small and lightweight, dedicated mirrorless lenses are the way to go.

            While battery life and AF system cannot compare (unless you count live-view mode), the X cameras still have some advantages over a camera like the D750, such as body price, more quiet shutter, the film simulation profiles, smaller and more lightweight dedicated lenses, acting as a 1.5 tele converter versus full frame (you can bring one single lens and use it for different reach on two different bodies), electronic shutter, less attention and more relaxed subjects versus a DSLR (though a smaller lens will help there), depending on what you shoot and how it moves 8 fps instead of 6.5 can be relevant, the Fuji has very accurate closest-eye AF due to the contrast detect AF and so on.

            The Sigma 18–35 is an APS-C lens by the way, so you’d either have to shoot the D750 in DX crop mode, use a D7XXX instead, or live with distortion/vignetting on the edges. Your argument is still valid of course.

            It all depends on what you are shooting and how, what you already have and bring and where your priorities are. You might use a Nikon camera for work and an X-T1 for travel and bring the X-T1 with an active adapter as a backup to paid shoots for example. Of course an adapter will never be able to replace the native lenses.

    How sad to “stay connected” while on vacation… Like the world’s gonna stop without you here!

    • Patrick

      hmmm… basically everyone I meet is permanently connected to facebook with smatphones or Ipad’s posting images of what they had for lunch ;) Are they all sad?

    • Patrick

      some share on facebook, some blog

  • John Griggs

    Thank you, Patrick, for all your hard work (particularly on vacation) and I thank you also for linking my blog. Have fun! — John (entropic remnants)

  • Patrick

    it’s often hard to blog 365 days a year, but as in this image, I try to take advantage of every “empty space” I have, like here, waiting 2 hours for a ferry… some post on facebook in the meantime, I blog

  • Roby

    Hope you have a nice vacation in Bali, Patrik :)
    By ferry, are you go to Lombok next?

  • Patrick

    I’m in Gili now… next stop Lombok… and then back home :(

    I read the article on ‘The First Fujifilm Lenses You Should Buy’ and it seems to be pretty much a list of the last lenses I’ll buy.
