DPReview TV has now published their Fujinon GF30mm f/3.5 hands on review, which was filmed with a GF30mm F/3.5 mounted on a Fujifilm GFX100.
The lens is another winner, and can easily keep up with the 100 megapixel of the Fujinon GFX100.
At some point of the video, he took a video of the forest, with a deer far away in the distance, and then cropped in and says “who needs a wildlife lens anymore“. Of course he said it as a joke, and the GF30mmF3.5 can’t replace a proper wildlife lens, but it was also a statement made to underline that with the combination GFX100 and GF30mmF3.5 you are in photographic crop-heaven.
Now, Fujifilm just launched new X and GFX deals, but the XF16-55mmF2.8 is not included in the official deals.
This means, that this is an error by AmazonUS, so, if you are interested in this lens, place your order and cross fingers to get it shipped before they realize the error, or that in any case AmazonUS will honor the price.
Pretty sure the deal will, as usual in these cases, be removed very soon.
For your convenience, down below is the full list of official Fujifilm deals (where the XF16-55mmF2.8 is not included, and therefore it is still sold for $1,200 at BHphoto and Adorama)
I was thinking you could perhaps share some of the pics taken on the FB group “Astrophotography with Fujifilm” that you manage. Lots of awesome pictures there! We often hear you need an expensive full frame camera or big telescope, but that’s just wrong, as this group suggests.
That would be great to attract more Fuji shooters to this group, it’s a very nice community where we help each other and learn from our experiences.
Astro can be daunting for the newbie, but it shouldn’t. Also, there aren’t a lot of Fuji shooters in the astro community, so I’m sure it could spread the virus — the good one!
Oh well, here it is.
Have fun and may this post inspire you to try your luck with the stars, too :).
