The Jack Of All – Fuji XF16-55 F/2.8 R LM WR

This was the very first Fuji lens I bought, as part of a custom Fuji kit that Conns Cameras were kind enough to make up for me, along with a new Fujifilm X-T1, grip and a few other little things I needed. The flexibility from the range of this zoom gave me a great learning point to continue my Fuji journy with.

A Little Bit of Magic – Fuji’s XF 35mm F/1.4

Of the three lenses Fujifilm launched with their original interchangeable X cameras the Fuji XF 35mm F/1.4 was probably the best optically of them all. I reviewed the XF 18mm f/2 here, a lens that I really like despite it’s quirks, but the 35/1.4 had a little bit of magic to the look it helps create. The 35mm gives a field of view that is close to what you will get using a 50mm on a full frame camera. A true classic focal length and many photographers first foray past the kit lens that came with their camera. This lens is a step above the usual.

An Underrated Pleasure – The Fuji XF 18mm F/2

A lot has been said about this little 18mm f/2 and I usually hear about how bad it is. Something I’m quick to point out is both subjective and inaccurate, if that can be taken with out contradiction. As like any tool it’s better if you use the right one for the job you are doing.

FLC With My Fuji

I started out, pretty much, taking photos of bands at gigs but don’t really do to much of that any more. However I was thinking of asking the boys of NYC band Fun Lovin’ Criminals if I could get access to shoot their show as we go back a few …
