Fuji 10-24mm vs Fuji 14mm f/2.8 and Fuji 23mm f/1.4

With the release of Fuji’s latest zoom lens, the ultra-wide angle 10-24mm f/4 R OIS, many Fuji shooters are having a difficult time deciding between this lens or a two lens combo with Fuji’s outstanding 14mm f/2.8 and 23mm f/1.4.  Since I own the two primes, and I have the 10-24mm in for review this …

Fujifilm X-E1 vs X-E2 – RAW Performance

In the second (and last) of my tests between the new Fujifilm X-E2 and X-E1, I take a look at the image quality over the ISO range in RAW, using Lightroom 5.3 RC.  I’d like to do the comparison in Capture One 7 (and I may revisit it later), but right now Capture One doesn’t …

Macro Battle Part 2 – Olympus 60mm vs Leica 45mm

A few days ago, I compared the new Olympus 60mm f/2.8 against the venerable Leica 45mm f/2.8 to see how they stacked up in the macro and close focus arena when stopped down.  Today I’m going to look at another characteristic: Wide open performance and bokeh.  These are important because macro lenses often pull double …

Macro Battle: Olympus 60mm f/2.8 vs Leica 45mm f/2.8

I did a little bit of testing last night with the new Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro and I compared it with the only other dedicated macro lens for Micro 4/3, the Panasonic Leica 45mm f/2.8 OIS.
