Comment on Sony Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 vs. Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 by W.C. http://admiringlight.com/blog/sony-zeiss-fe-35mm-f1-4-vs-fuji-xf-23mm-f1-4/#comment-233365 Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:13:56 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=4954#comment-233365 “Its a dramatic difference between Fuji and Sony, its seems i was fooled by several enthusastic internet comments when buying one (had no direct field comparison posssible).”

There’s a dramatic difference in sensor size, what did you expect? Assuming both types of sensors are from the same year, a full frame sensor will always win. You are pixel peeping and comparing apples and oranges. You were not fooled by anyone, but yourself Karsten.

“super unclear / not sharp Cloudy pictures are simply a big crap”

You are pixel peeping and comparing apples and oranges. Use your RAW converter properly (get the latest version too) and you’ll see that the Fuji delivers pretty amazing image quality. Look only at the images of the Fuji. Look at your prints. Stop the endless comparing on your quest for the ultimate image quality fro the ultimate camera. Use what you have and enjoy it. Ask yourself this; are my photographs interesting, good, fascinating? What story do I want to tell via my photos? Am I a good photographer or am I just a (very lucky and rich) guy good at reviewing, comparing and testing cameras and lenses?

You are lost in pixel peeping space my friend. I know, because I’ve been down this road too. Never satisfied, stuck in front of your computer screen scrutinising your photos. With each new camera or lens there are new disappointments (image quality, size and weight, lens choice, responsiveness, AF speed, build quality etc). Forever changing cameras and lenses and sharing your disappointment and anger with the online photo community like you did on this website. And when you finally do settle on a camera system for a short while, oops, there’s the new model!

There is hope. You have great power. You can end this madness, this struggle, this internal war. Choose a system and go out and make photographs. Enjoy!

Comment on Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR by Paul Hart http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-fujinon-xf-90mm-f2-r-lm-wr/#comment-233343 Thu, 30 Jul 2015 22:26:45 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=5302#comment-233343 I have this lens alongside the 56 and other XF primes. My early but very clear assessment is that it is the best from the Fuji X stable so far, and the best 90 I have ever used.

Comment on Review: Fujifilm X-T10 by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-x-t10/#comment-233290 Thu, 30 Jul 2015 02:05:47 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=5178#comment-233290 I have the regular on my Fuji and the long on my Sony. The regular fits, but is just a bit tight if I sweat at all. Makes it hard to get off (it’s fine during shooting). The long fits me better. However, I’m a big guy.

Comment on Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS by Jordan Steele http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-55-200mm-r-ois/#comment-233282 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 23:05:09 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=2055#comment-233282 The newer lenses are definitely better optically. The 90 is the best all around lens yet made for the X series in my opinion. That said, it’s also less versatile. The 50-140 is fantastic, but much, much larger. For what it’s worth, the 55-200 is still what’s in my bag. I may have to add the 90 at some point, though not as a replacement. I did a comparison between the 50-140 and the 55-200 when I had the former for review: http://admiringlight.com/blog/fuji-50-140mm-f2-8-vs-fuji-55-200mm-f3-5-4-8/

Comment on Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS by Sam Taylor http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-fujifilm-55-200mm-r-ois/#comment-233275 Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:28:51 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=2055#comment-233275 It’s a couple of years since you posted this review and lots of lenses have been added to the Fuji system since then. Would you consider adding a post-script to this review to reflect on how the lens compares to more recent Fuji telephotos like the 50-140 or the 90? Like many others I love the compact Fuji primes but often find myself missing a little telephoto reach. I want something longer than my 56 but the bulk of the 50-140 seems to defeat the point of a small mirrorless system. Is the 55-200 the answer I’m looking for or do the newer lenses outclass it?

Comment on Review: Sony DSC-RX100 by Jon http://admiringlight.com/blog/review-sony-dsc-rx100/#comment-233159 Tue, 28 Jul 2015 03:22:19 +0000 http://admiringlight.com/blog/?p=1592#comment-233159 I sold my Sony, as I hated the video button placement. This caused me a great deal of stress and my hands were too big for this camera. As a older gentlemen my eyes weren’t too good either. I opted for the Fuji XE2 and never looked back!
