GEAR TALK DETOX: Fujifilm GFX Monochrome Edition with Valentino Rossi and More

Share

Gear Talk Detox

The next few weeks will be gear talk at its highest power, here on FujiRumors.

The reason?

The massive Fujifilm GFX100 announcement on May 23!

So I thought that, before we dive into specs, pixel peeping, 400% magnifications and all the rest, we take one last deep breath into the art of photography by sharing some of the most voted images.

The only problem?

Our massive 21,000+ members strong Fujifilm GFX facebook group is very prolific and shares tons of images.

In order to make it easier for you digest, I decided to focus this part of the image roundup on monochrome images, and there will be another one later on in colors.

Fujifilm’s Mission Impossible

If you are one of those, who thinks Fujifilm is not for Pros (APS-C is crap, MF is too slow), then please stop reading now, since I would like you to keep your sweet illusions ;).

Still sticking around? Well, then here is todays’ story.

After we discovered that the official images of Hollywood’s blockbuster “Dunkirk” were taken with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF18-135, fellow FR-reader Sam Zhai (instagram @hermeneuticlens) now spotted Fujifilm cameras on set of Mission Impossible – Fallout.

Chiabellajames.com (Instagram cbj_photo) used the following gear, to snap the official images for the movie:

DPReviewTV Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8: “Optically Fantastic, but for Most People the Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4 is a Better Choice”

Share

DRPreview TV reviewed the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8. Here are their findings:

  • professional line of Fujinon lenses
  • well-built, heavy and expensive
  • well suited for cameras like Fujifilm X-H1
  • manual focus ring feels sloppy
  • no OIS, but it’s typical for lenses in this range. But they miss it anyway, unless used on X-H1 with IBIS
  • XF 10-24 more well suited for lighter bodies and has OIS
  • no filter threads, typical for lenses that wide
  • powerful autofocus motors. Fast and accurate
  • coma very well corrected, excellent for astrophotography and cityscape
  • vignetting and distortion very well corrected
  • sunstars are not bad, but not the best they have seen
  • close focusing is similar to the XF10-24 (9 feet)
  • XF8-16 optically fantastic, very sharp
  • 8mm at f/2.8 a little bit weird in the corners, but stopping down cleans up beautifully
  • wide open it is sharper than the XF10-24, but stopped down difference gets smaller
  • It’s admirable that Fujifilm gives us lenses that give us full frame equivalent look, like the Sony 12-24mm f/4 G
  • the Sony 12-24 is lighter and $300 cheaper
  • if you want FF look in APS-C, you are not going to save money
  • for most people, the XF 10-24mm F4 is a better choice, since landscape you stop down anyway
  • XF 8-16mm F2.8 is a niche lens
