German Fuji X PRO 1 and lens reviews (Labortests!)

Share

The Germans are coming! :)
Digitalkamera.de got their hands on the Fuji X PRO 1 and X lenses. That’s a “Labortest” made with DxO Analyzer. Fuji X PRO 1 Bericht (Click here to read the google translation).
You have to pay to read the full Labortest but I give you a short summary: The Dynamic range is good up to 6.400 ISO and decreases gradually. Particularly the resolution results are impressive (so they say). Up to 1.600 ISO there is no loss at all!
They also tested the lenses. The 35mm X lens is very good but has one big disappointment. At wide aperture the edges are not really sharp :(
The 12mm lens is not as sharp as the 35mm lens (but still very good!)
The best lens is the 60mm macro!

In short, as stated by other reviewers before the X PRO 1 resolution and dynamic range doesn’t increse at all up to 1.600 ISO (and that’s amazing result for an APS-C sensor!). The 60mm macro is very likely the best of all three X lenses. The only not so perfect lens is the 18mm f/2.0. Surprised?

Fuji 35mm X lens as sharp (or even sharper) than the super expensive Leica 35mm lens!

Share

Ken Rockwell (Click here) is currently testing the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 X lens. His test isn’t finished yet but he already writes: “This is as sharp, maybe sharper than the equivalent LEICA 50mm f/1.4 ASPH, and has the same superb bokeh, focuses faster and closer and has the same near zero distortion. Not bad for $600!” Yep, the Leica Summilux costs $5,000 on eBay (Click here)!!!

Exciting! Ken also writes that he would loved to see a Full Frame sensor instead of the APS-C. But I guess this would have made the camera terrible expensive. Anyway, maybe Fuji will launch a second FF camera at Photokina? Would put a huge pressure on Leica!
