Fuji X Series and a Bag of Brilliant Lenses

DSLR or Mirrorless? I made the switch a couple of months ago. From Canon full frame to Fuji X series. I made the change because the Fuji weighed considerably less meaning a pack with two or three lenses and an extra camera body does not break the back and is more comfortable on longer hikes,. I also found that I’m a much more efficient shooter with the Fuji. Because I see exactly what the final image will look like in my viewfinder, I can very quickly adjust the exposure to just how I like it and take the shot. No more taking a shot then chimping down at the preview screen to see how it came like I did on the Canon. I take fewer shots but have a much higher ‘keeper’ rate now. My camera is always with me cause I can bundle it into a small bag meaning I get more shots than before. And, probably the most important thing, I LOVE shooting with the Fuji XT-1 and XT-10. These cameras are just a blast to shoot with and I enjoy it so much more!

We have partnered with Fujifilm Australia and will be putting 4 of Fuji’s lenses to the test this summer. Fuji has sent us the 55-200mm f/3.5, the 18-135mm f/3.5 WR, the 10-24mm f/4 (not pictured) and the extra special bokahlishish 56mm f/1.2 APD lens.

One of the best things about Fuji is they know how to make glass. Fuji have been making some of the best lenses for over 50 years and no matter the focal length, they are all sharp as a tack and all around awesome.

We are really excited to get these lenses out in the field and really give them a workout.

    Agree with everything you’ve said in your comment. While I loved my Nikon’s, the Fuji is just exciting to use and just feels right. I’m often in China and apart from the decrease in weight I feel I can be more subtle with my shooting. Really looking forward to your reviews, especially the 56mm f/1.2 APD lens.

      Thanks Mate! The 56 APD is looking very good so far. Stay tuned.
