    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I have got today a couple of Kipon adapters and I made same quick test shot with the most difficult RF lens I have, the CV 15.
    One good news is that I have not detected any substantial color shift, the bad news is that the borders and the corners are substantially mushed: I made a comparison with the same lens on the Ricoh GXR, and in this regard the latter is substantially better.
    A second bad news, not related to this WA lens but more general, is that the manual focusing is hardly usable also with the legacy lenses.
    As long as you can live without magnification it may be fine but the enlarged image is very unstable and as such totally unusable for the fine tuning of the focus.
    And of course there is no focus peaking.
    Hopefully the handling of the manual focussing issues can be addressed in a future FW, the bad performances in the edges and in the corners I am afraid are strictly related to the sensor design (absence of microlenses?) and so much more difficult to improve.
    I did not buy this excellent camera to use it with legacy lenses, so there is no regret on my side, but since I have excellent M lenses I just wanted to try.
    The second adapter I got is for Nikon mount lenses and I will use it to see the performances os same Leica R I have on Leitax mount.

    In Flickr go to the image you wish to share and click on it. You will then see "Share". Drop down menu gives "Grab the HTML/BBCode", use BBCode. Copy all the info and then paste this in GETDPI [IMG]. Delete the blue "http://" that first shows and replace with your link.

    Hope this helps

    Here's one from your site

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Quite a few shops here have the body and only the body. I pre-ordered elsewhere but I am not really sure. It sure would be nice to have it for low light photography despite all the built in impediments the camera seems to have. A bit confusing choice.

    I'm hoping my local camera store will have one in soon. Apparently, they aren't expecting to have any spare for demonstration... Too many pre-orders to satisfy first!

    There must be some trusting photographers out there.

    Good luck everyone, can't wait to see your impressions and images soon!

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I wasn't going to do it. I can't justify it and I have only had my X100 for 9 months. I went and touched one, big mistake for my bank balance. I wasn't planning on admitting this sin in public. I was fully prepared to be disappointed but am, instead, stunned. Web size pics cannot do it justice ...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    I don't know if it is the lack of AA, new sensor, the 35mm lens, cunning JPG trickery or some combination but, in my view, I am seeing some of the finest digital images from any camera. They are reminding me of the sort of Velvia images I used to get from a Mamiya 7 or from a Contax RX I used to own ...

    This one shot as RAW and processed in-camera to Velvia:

    Brian

    I am trying to restrain myself and don't wish to encourage anyone to part with almost 2K on yet another camera but I am truly stunned by it. The X100 is very good but this is in a different league. I have even emailed the manager of my local store to say so.

    My opinion of course and applies to my type of photography but in my view:

    the AF is fast and accurate enough
    the viewfinder is bright and big enough
    the camera is bigger than the X100 but is just right and makes the X100 look a little squashed
    black is beautiful
    the 'chatter' - it is there but becomes somehow quite reassuring
    it is all just a step up
    at the moment I don't regret but time may tell

    This is a crop. If you were here in front of my monitor looking at this you would not believe it ... all I did was crop it. OOC JPEG, no other PP. ISO 400, 35mm lens f/5.6

    Beautiful XPro1 images Lee. I would also like to see some MF lens shots if you have an adapter. I have a Contax G to ProX adapter, but no camera yet

    Hi Carl

    Thanks, hope you get yours soon. No adapter, I am afraid. The only one I could make use of is a Pentax K and I had originally assumed that I would want to give this a go with my 43mm Ltd. To be honest, though, the Fuji 35mm is so good, I don't see the point and for the first time in over 20 years I am thinking of selling the PK 43mm.

    If I have done this right here are some true 1024x768 pixel size crops from original 16MP JPegs:

    Lee, Lovely images.

    The crops do look a bit waxy, indicative of aggressive noise reduction (in the camera/jpg, no doubt) though.

    They look pretty good to me. I cropped in Pixelmator and 'shared' direct to Flickr but I am not sure if they were further JPEGed in the process ...

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    teeraash, which CV12 are you using? The older thread mount version or the newer bayonet mount version? I guess it doesn't matter for the corner sharpness. Just wondering whether the X-Pro1 would work with the thread mount version (which is cheaper). This would meant using two adaptors, one for thread mount to M and one for M to Fuji. Probably a bad idea, but maybe it works. Thanks in advance.

    No problem, it works, I have the thread mount version and I have not seen any problem which is attributable to the mount.

    Hi Zlatko:

    I'm also using the thread mount which came with a free threat mount to Leica M bayonet mount. So yes, you have to use two adaptors (threat to bayonet and bayonet to Fuji X-mount adaptor and this shouldn't cause any problem.

    Sapphie is usually my first subject for a new camera and she was feeling a little left out. This was on Velvia mode so may be a little contrasty. F/2, ISO 320, 1/50 sec.

    re: Fun with the Fuji X ___!

    Would it be practical to use the X-Pro 1 as a square format camera with the CV12 lens? if you shoot in 1:1 format with the CV12 or other non-Fuji lens (via an adapter), will the the EVF show square frame lines?

    I took pictures of bribe and gloom today. They were photographed by their hired photographer in a hotel exotic lobby. In your opinion, would it be appropriate to post their pictures in a public forum like this one? They are kind of cute though.
