    Sigma 35mm F/2 "I" lens on the S1r

    The 35mm is also great for semi-macro and studio work. This is an overhead shot of a sourdough loaf I baked and decorated today, its pin sharp. No wonder Sigma are so enthusiastic about these new "I" contemporary lenses.

    Sigma 35mm F/2 "I" lens on the S1r

    One way to check the performance on these new small Sigma lenses, which appear to be a great choice for travel, landscapes, etc, is to try them out on a high resolution camera like the Lumix S1r. So that is what I did today in London. I'm delighted with this lens and its 24mm sister lens. To...

    GFX100S shutter failure

    I'd want to know I'm buying a camera, not a future warranty claim. That means a product recall for affected cameras, or at least publicising a list of their serial numbers so that existing owners can make a judgment call on whether and when to get them fixed, and dealers know which cameras are...

    GFX100S shutter failure

    I'm not sure anyone is in a position to say at this stage that the shutter failure issue is not a common problem. Its common enough to have been noted by Fuji and to have affected a number of owners, including a notable YouTuber. If the failure takes place at a critical moment on a job, it...

    GFX100S shutter failure

    Park were very helpful. The shutter failed within 30 days of purchase, so they had a statutory obligation to replace, but nonetheless there was no fuss or argument and the refund was prompt. And no, I did not want a replacement - this camera is not ready for prime time, I am afraid, and I have...

    GFX100S shutter failure

    Unfortunately my Fuji GFX100S shutter has failed. This seems to be a relatively common problem, so I would be interested if any other member's camera has suffered a similar fate. The good news is that Park Cameras who supplied the camera here in the UK did not quibble have been refunded the...

    Fun with S1/s1r

    Something different. This is a small sourdough loaf I baked this morning. Lumix S1r and Sigma 105mm macro lens, F/5.6 on a tripod.

    Fun with MF images 2021

    GFX100S, 23mm F4, Cornwall. Sadly, the shutter failed shortly after I took this image. It's going back to the dealer tomorrow, hopefully to be fixed and returned shorty.

    Bossiney Cove, Cornwall, Sigma 100-400mm on the Lumix S1r.

    Fun with S1/s1r

    Gone fishing... Lumix S1r, Sigma 24-70mm F/2.8 @ F8, 100 ISO.

    Fun with S1/s1r

    I am in Cornwall. Sadly, my Fuji GFX100S shutter has failed, but fortunately I have with me my Lumix S1r, and I am appreciating its greater reliability, versatility and of course its image quality. I am using it with two of Sigma's newest Mirrorless camera specifc lenses, the 24-70mm F/2.8...
