TESTED: Can Fujifilm X Lenses Cover a Bigger Sensor?

Fellow FR-reader Alik Griffin contacted me in regards to a test he made aimed to investigate one thing: is the Fujinon XF lenses image circle big enough to cover a larger sensor?

So he put put a bunch of Fujifilm APS-C prime lenses on the full-frame Nikon Z6 using a Fujifilm X to Nikon Z adapter to see what sort of image circle the different lenses produced.

Down below the results in short, the link to the full tests (so you can see exactly how much each lens covers) and some thoughts.

Aperture seems to be wide open on all the lenses.

Fujifilm Full Frame Mirrorless 28-100mm F2.8 and 28-110mm F2.8 Patented – UPDATED

Fujifilm has patented the following lenses for full frame mirrorless cameras.

My guess: probably some cine-lenses for other mounts.

UPDATE: FR-reader Mistral75 says:

This patent is related to the Fujinon Premista 28-100mm T/2,9.

Look at the image circle diameter of the examples in the patent: 46.3mm. A bit more than the diagonal of a regular 24×36 sensor (43.3mm), 46.3mm is the diagonal of the 40.96mm x 21.60mm 8K RED Monstro VistaVision sensor used by the RED Weapon Monstro and Panavision Millenium DXL cinema cameras.

Astrophotography with Fujifilm: Get Stellar Results with Fujifilm APS-C and Medium Format Cameras

I have received an email from a fellow member of our Fujifilm Astrophography facebook group, which said:

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 :).

These Guys Left Full Frame Sony, Canon and Nikon for Fujifilm APS-C

Switch to X

Here is a roundup about photographers, who are switching from full frame Sony, Canon and Nikon to Fujifilm X.

Mostly they say that the difference in image quality compared to full frame is negligible. But the difference in ergonomics, functionality, menu system, look, size, beautiful lenses, color science etc is much more significant. These aspects make the real difference and worth it to go with Fujifilm APS-C.

At the end, the most important thing is getting into a system that makes you want to shoot more, and Fujifilm is, for some, the best choice for that. As one of the them said:

There is something about Fujifilm, where they want you to get the most for what you pay for.

And to be clear: if you shoot any other brand, and are happy with it, then you did everything right, and you should not care about what the people below say. You have your needs, and you are right to ignore Fujifilm.

But here we are on a Fujifilm blog, so we talk about people, who shoot Fujifilm.
