Fujifilm X-E3 is a compact rangefinder style member of the X-Trans III family. Together with X-T2, X-Pro2, X-T20 and X-H1 it shares the Fujifilm's own (although based on Sony architecture) 24mpix sensor. This is of course an X-Trans sensor with different (to industry standard) layout of color pixels and as such should not be bundled with new Fujifilm XA cameras which, although share the same mount and pixel count, have completely different sensors.
The lens is relatively light and small - compared to Fuji's older 23mm prime - the F1.4 it 1cm shorter and 120g lighter. Many shooters also report that the F2 lens focuses faster, although thgough my very short tests made on the F1.4 I have to say that I don't notice any large differences between the AF systems of the two lenses.
For a long time this was the only native macro option for the X Mount system. Of course, as will be pointed out by many it is not a "real" macro lens because it doesn't have 1:1 magnification, but rather is limited to 1:2. This however is plenty enough for most of people most of the time and unless you are a strictly macro photographer or are required to print large images of super tiny objects, you will be fine, with 24mpix you will have some space to crop.
Hello everyone and welcome to my next review. This time I'm tackling the better side of the Fujifilm kit lenses - Fujinon XF 18-55. You can really see the differences between this lens and its XC counterpart (16-50) right at a first glance - it is much sturdier, build out of metal and probably most important of all, it has an aperture ring . Overall, to be honest, there istn't really that much to say about the performance of the lens other than it is really great.
Hello and welcome to the review. Today I will be talking a litte about one of the lenses in Sony's affordable array that I have most ambivalent feelings about - the mighty 70-200 F4 zoom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dNNhKZTAIM Let's start with built quality - it is superb. The lens is all metal with a metal detatchable tripod …
In this post I will try to show you what the differences between the small Fujifilm X sitsters is. At this point the 2 lower price offerings with the X-Trans III sensor are the Fujifilm X-T20 and Fujifilm X-E3. Both of them cost below €1.000 for a body, making it more or less half the price of the X-Pro2 or the X-T2.
Like probably any photographer out there who is not a Fuji shooter, I was curious about the system and how it compares to what I currently use (I own a Sony A7II with a collection of „cheaper“ lenses). Fuji as a system really stands out from the bunch, not only in how their cameras are …
