– Fujifilm X-T1 ~ The Evolution Continues at kevinmullinsphotography here: “This Fuji X-T1 is without doubt going to be a prime body for me when I shoot weddings.  Coupled with the 56mm F1.2 lens I am indeed, a very happy jetlagged bunny.

– The 56mm and a little bit more of the X-T1 at neillsoden here: “The AF performed well, and I was happy with it for my needs. The AF-C is something to get used to and almost felt like a hit-and-miss at times. However, most of the time I was impressed when an object moved away from or towards me.  I did try the AF on some small birds. Now, I am no bird photographer, and can’t really compare it to the a DSLR, but in my own opinion, I doubt it will work for bird or sport photography just yet.”

moslake: “More tests for the capability of Fujifilm X-T1 with XF 56mm f1.2 under varying low and colorful lights. All are SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) JPG without any adjustment. Link here. X-T1: Focusing speed is similar to 1DX/5D3 in low light. Accurate in color balance and capable to deliver Straight Out Of Camera JPGs. Quality similar to 1DX/5D3 in low light.”

– X-T1 review at danbaileyphoto here: “If you’re not ready to dump the DSLR yet, (I’m not either) the X-T1 makes an excellent companion camera for those times when you want to save on weight and bulk, but still need the performance of a pro grade camera. Maybe you’ll shoot the DSLR for some things and use the X-T1 for traveling and times when you want to go light. You’ll probably find yourself using the DSLR less and less.”
