TheCameraStoreTV Fujifilm Live Edition: XF 80mm Macro, X-E3 and More

Share

What a coincidence… just when I had my babysitting break of 1 hour, TheCameraStoreTV started a live stream with Fuji Guy Jarry Julien.

So I could intereact with the show and also with prominent Fuji Guys like Billy, who was active in the comments. Btw, Billy said in the comments he thinks he saw me taking a picture of him at Photokina 2016. Yep, that’s the image… and I’ve found Waldo, too :D

Check out the video at TCSTV youtube channel here.

The future of the Deals

I can hear you say: they are not that great like deals in the past.

But guys, we better get used to it. A few years ago, hardly anyone owned Fujifilm X, and Fuji had to offer terrific deals to “convince” people to buy into the X system. But now, that Fuji X has become popular, there is simply no real need to launch such agressive deals anymore.

Hence, deals on X-system have become more rare, and when they come, like now, they will be less amazing as in the past.

On the other hand, GFX deals are now much better.

Rumor Chatter: Tamron Will Make Fujifilm X Mount lenses (via SAR)

Share

Tamron Mirrorless Offerings on AmazonUS

Fuji X Mount Tamron

According to SonyAlphaRumors, Tamron will make Fuji X Mount lenses in future. SAR writes:

A SAR reader reported to me the unofficial talk he collected on the Digital Splash show. While this is just unofficial chatter it’s still interesting to know what managers are spilling out on those kind of events. […]

tamron have now ceased all future A mount lens development and instead are shifting focus to E mount and fuji mount, the price of A mount for some reason has shot up in recent times which paired with the shrinking A mount market share has led them the call it a day, all recent releases will be fullfilled up untill a certain point which wasn’t specified.

In the past, we had huge discussion here on FujiRumors about Sigma and Tamron Fuji X mount support. So here is a little recap:

Tamron

Back in November 2015, we shared the rumor that Tamron has “currently” no plans to release X-mount lenses. But the source also added that Tamron said they “may produce X-mount lenses in future“.

That was a cautios opening by Tamron, and if SAR is right (and they are usually a very accurate rumor site), maybe time will soon come, that Tamron will join the X side of life :) .

Let’s hope so… and you guys can start dreaming and let us know which Tamron lens you would like for your Fuji X camera.

Sigma

Back in October 2015, our sources told us that Sigma has no plans to make X-mount lenses, because the Fuji X market is too small and Sigma thinks Fujifilm made a big mistake by not adopting the M/43 mount. You can read the whole story here.

But I think that the real reason (and problem for Sigma) is that there is a lot of high quality Fujinon glass out there, that covers already many of our photographic needs, and Sigma is afraid they would end up like the Zeiss.

Fujinon Vs. Rest of the World

Yes, it’s hard to compete with Fujinon glass.

Zeiss tried to enter the Fuji X market with their Zeiss Touit Fuji X-mount Trinity, but completely failed. People simply prefered the cheaper and yet optically on par (or even superior) Fujinon X glass.

Sure, it’s tough to beat Fujinon glass, but we X-shooters are definitely open to other options, and willing to spend our money in third party glass, as long as the equation value for money is right.

Samyang, for example, found quite a big fellowship amongst X-shooters with lenses like the Samyang 8mm fisheye and their probably most successful X-mount lens, the Samyang 12mmF2, convinces with a very low price and good IQ.

Also the Mitakon 35/0.95 ver.II is falling in the hands of more and more Fujifilm X-Shooters. Jonas Rask wrote a review about it. FR-reader yukosteel compared the Mitakon 35/0.95 ver.I with the Fujinon XF35/1.4 here.

I’m sure that, with the right offering, the right price and the right quality, Sigma and Tamron could sell quite well in the X-shooter community.

Fuji X-shooters simply love good glass, no matter which brand it is from.

So, c’mon, Sigma and Tamron, be brave, release some of your best glass in X-mount… and take our money :) .

Fringer Canon EF to Fuji X Smart Adapter by Fringer – Autofocus Video Demo

Share

After the Steelsring Canon EF to Fuji X smart adapter, now also Fringer is working on his version of the EF to Fuji X smart adapter.

Fringer uploaded this video, and it looks like the AF speed is already promising. Fringer says (via fringerdev.com):

The smart adapter prototype was made about 7 months ago. Now I’ve got time to continue the development project. However, the time to market is still unkown.

It’s a great option for those, who would love to switch from Canon to Fuji and keep their Canon glass.

More and more smart adapters for Fujifilm are coming. Amongst the others, we have (or will soon get):
