Just a quick sample shots from the class I taught two weeks ago. Now each person has used his/hers own style when processing and I didn't have any control on it. Sony is using top of the line 85mm f1.4 GM, Nikon with 70-200mm f2.8 and I am with my 110mm f2.

Just saw that Sigma 105mm f1.5 will be $1600S. So why Fuji didn't make that 250mm f4 for their GFX as a f2.8 lens. I know Fuji lens will be sharp corner to corner but you can loosen those specs a little at faster apertures.

Have you handled a 300/2.8 for 35mm/full frame? It is a no joke lens. A 250/2.8 for medium format is not likely to be any smaller or lighter.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

Yes as a matter of fact and I am a small handicapped person. Used to walk (slowly) form one end of the football field to the other, holding 1dmk2/500mm f4 along with another camera with std zoom. If I can do it, anyone in half decent shape shouldn't have any problems. And I still have my 300mm f2.8 IS. I always use it hand held, it is not that big.:)

If you think those are big lenses from Fuji you should try a Fuji 77 out for size. Fuji are making a 200/2 for the APS-c cameras & that is relatively large and will be costly. I guess they have their reasons for not making more 2.8 (or f/2) GF lenses but at least you can adapt most lenses these days

I like the 2nd from the top image from the Nikon. The Nikon has the most natural non flash look with no bright highlights on the skin retaining more skin texture. This is just my preference in how background and subject balance very well. Shadow transition is very nice with the Nikon example.

So easy to critique and talk big on the internet. All image here are great. This is just an example of how every photographer shoots differently.

When I shoot in all kinds of lighting from mixed lighting, open shadow, bright sun both in lens or with sun behind the Sony colour science is different. In most cases I do not have to touch vibrance at all or the reds and orange will start getting aggressive. I still find it easier to ramp up colours with fuji or canon vs toning down the colours I get straight out of camera with Sony.

This weekend I've been analyzing my 3 camera systems and I'll say they are so different that it's such a variety of looks just by the camera render. No question the Fuji has this certain look that is just fantastic once I massage my raw's in post. I just have to work incredibly much harder to get this magic with the Sony files when I use adapted canon glass. I'm just resistant in going full on with G master sony glass $$$$ but in due time I will.

Lately I've been trying to test my Fuji and 50-140mm combo. I'll have to say it's such an incredible combo. I sure wish the 8-16 f/2.8 hits the street soon. I do like my 10-24mm but lately i seem to really miss f/2.8 for a UWA zoom.
