Kipon: “IBELUX 40mmF0.85 Performs Better on Fujifilm than Sony, We Don’t know Why” Kipon 40mmF0.85 Reviews

Kipon Ibelux 40mm F0.85

Kai was at the Kipon booth at photokina, and noticed the pink Ibelux 40mm F0.85 MK II, which was announced back in September 2017.

You can check out Kai’s hands on video here, but I’d like to highlight on curious sentence the Kipon manager said, while Kai was trying to figure out if he’d like to test the Sony APS-C or the Fujifilm APS-C version of the lens. Kipon says:

The performance of Ibelux 40mm F0.85 is better on Fujifilm cameras than on Sony, we don’t know why.”

Kai’s impressions when shot at F0.85 on the Fujifilm X-T3:

  • lot’s of color fringing
  • soft
  • nice smooth bokeh

You can find another Kipon IBELUX 40mm F0.85 review at alikgriffin here (with lots of sample images). His Pros and Cons:

  • Pros: Extremely shallow DOF, very creamy puffy bokeh, nice corner and edge performance when stopped down, sharp in the center, great bokeh at all apertures.
  • Cons: CA wide open, tendency for highlights to bloom wide open, vignetting at f0.85-f1, big, heavy.

Fujifilm X-T3 High ISO “Equivalent to Some of my FF cameras” says Steve Huff and Canon EOS R vs Fuji X-T3 Dynamic Range Comparison

Fujifilm X-T3 vs Canon EOS R

Photons to Photos has published their Canon EOS R dynamic range test results. The Fujifilm X-T3 keeps up very well with Canon’s latest full frame camera. You can manipulate the chart here.

Fujifilm X-T3 High ISO

DPReview recently added their conclusions regarding Fujifilm X-T3 image quality to their ongoing review.

They say that at very high ISO, the Fujifilm X-T3 performs worse than the Fujifilm X-T2 (using Adobe, which has no final X-T3 support yet). Using Capture One things change a bit, but the difference is still there between X-T3 and X-T2.

This kind of does not fit well with what I have often heard in real life reviews by X-T3 users so far, who say low light performance is improved (the latest is Steve Huff, see below). So what’s happening?

Well, we have already noticed and shared here, that:

Fujifilm X-H2: Are You Waiting for X-H2 to Upgrade/Switch or Did you Get the Fujifilm X-T3 Already? POLL

Fujifilm X-H2

After the announcement of the Fujifilm X-T3, I get countless emails, asking me when the Fujifilm X-H2, Fujifilm X-Pro3, Fujifilm X-T30, Fujifilm X-E4, Fujfiilm X100V or Fujifilm X200 with latest X-Trans sensor 4 and X Processor 4 will come.

I am working on this, and I will post updates on FR as soon as I can. So make sure not to miss them by following us on Facebook, RSS-feed, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter.

One of the guys, asking me about the Fujifilm X-H2 is FR Sacha, who wrote me:

What would you think of running a poll to get a feel for the interest with the Fujifilm X-H2?

More specifically to have an idea of how many users didn’t upgrade to the X-T3, and are actually waiting on the Fuji XH2. This is something I see come back a lot in the comments of the X-T3 reviews so I’d be curious to see what a poll would look like. It could even motivate Fujifilm to hasten the X-H2’s release date, after seeing the results of the poll :)

One note: I feel people waiting on the Fujifilm X-H2 are actually mostly non-fuji users who want to switch to Fuji but maybe are still on the fence and would like the “whole package” with IBIS to really switch. So maybe the results for Fuji users could be a bit less in “favor” of the X-H2.”

And since your participation, ideas and contributions are the heart and soul of this blog, I will be happy to take Sacha’s advice and make a poll out of it.

Check out the poll below… and read the options carefully ;)

Adobe Releases DNG Converter 11.0 with Fujifilm X-T3 Support

Adobe DNG Converter 11.0

Another day, and another breaking news here on fujirumors.com ;).

Adobe has just released the DNG Converter 11.0 with support for the Fujifilm X-T3. You can download it for Windows here and Mac here.

Thanks to the DNG converter, it is now possible to convert X-T3 RAW files to DNG and work with them in Lightroom.

Another workaround to finally edit your Fuji X-T3 RAW files in Adobe, is to get Iridient X Transformer and convert X-T3 files to DNG using Iridients superior X-Trans demosaicing.

And if you consider leaving Lightroom, Capture One 11 now offers a standalone Fujifilm version.
