Chatting to P1 today and they have sent in the request to show what film profile was used rather than 'Auto' to the R&D dept of C1. See what the future updates give so, fingers crossed.

Great to hear! That would be a awesome addition...

For anyone using manual lens and would like to update the EXIF data to match, I was able to get a working script using EXIFtool thanks for the help of someone on the official forums...
https://forum.phaseone​.com/En/viewtopic.php?​f=70&t=29412 (external link)

Scripts are only available to the Mac version since they are based on AppleScript... Now that I can update my lens info, have the film sims match; that's two features that I was missing after doing the switch from LR... In version 12 they have an easier "open with photoshop" option, so my stitching needs are covered. Though I would like to see them add their own stitching function...

With C1 12 though now I can say all my processing is done there... Only using LR for it's cloud since and cataloging...

Still debating (internally) whether to go all in on Fuji (and leave Canon/Sony). But my numbers tell me that X100F is my weapon of choice for all personal work.

Stick with your X100F for your personal weapon :) Lately with my early morning street photography, I'm game for a capable large pocket size X100f camera. Iphone just doesn't cut it for me even though I use it a lot. F/2 fixed lens is just fast enough to be a great tool for street. My X-t2 with 27mm f/2.8 just never jived with me.

These 2 white versatile Beasts are only one of my reasons why I stick with Canon and Sony. The Fuji 50-140mm really needs to be f/1.8 (not f/2.8)to play with the others but it's still a good lens for versatility. However long telephoto zooms is a requirement for me.

Fuji has said they are not venturing in to the FF sensor. I'd buy a FF fuji in a heartbeat as long as they do no surpass Sony prices! Maybe the small form factor mirrorless is coming to an end. The Fuji 33 f/1.0 and 8-16mm is examples that there is more acceptance to larger size with a Fuji mirrroless crop system. I highly doubt many here on the POTN will be buying the 200mm prime due to size and cost $$$$$. If FL isn't the criteria buying a Sigma 105 f/1.4 prime on a FF (or maybe adapting to Fuji) is cheap and fantastic for portrait work for a Bokeh machine!

Neat to see what happens when the Nikon z7/6 and Canon EOS R matures into.......

This world of high tech and new systems will drastically change and spoil digital photographers.

Bobby,

If I go niche like you I'm considering to sell my Fuji crop system for GFX......IF I do something drastic. This way MF will have incredible DR and high iso capabilities for a niche system that is non sports. The benefits is gorgeous Fuji render. I will miss fast responsive AF body though. Very niche specific application.

I really would buy Fuji FF in a split second if they produced it. I bet Fuji could easily and effortlessly produce identical performance of the XT3 but with a Sony full frame sensor inside with fuji render. I mentioned this topic over coffee with some photog friends and they too would go for Fuji FF over their secondary Fuji crop system. Most of them still use Nikon and Canon mirrored for a primary system. Seems the mirrorless game is accepting chunky bodies now.

Sony is my go to small form factor system now. My A7iii with GM16-35 f/2.8 is lighter than a fuji with 8-16mm. UWA is my universal use walk around for documenting life and events.

So far I can't dump Canon and Sony......Maybe a mk2,3 Canon EOS R!!! I'd be fun to rock a heavy RF 28-70 f/2 zoom with a mirrorless body!!

Too many alternatives or to dump systems. All have some benefits!!

Fit your A73 with the Sony 12-24mm F/2.8 lens and, oh wait...

I spent a few hours walking about Dublin carrying the 8-16 on an X-T2 the weight didn't bother me at all. It's just not that heavy feeling.

The Sony set up you mention weighs in at: 1337g
The Fuji set up you mention weighs in at:1344g

That's about weight of a quarter in the difference but yeah, that Sony + lens is so much lighter - a whole 25c lighter  :p

Kim Fuji 8-16 is wider and short for universal walk around for me. 10-24mm I owned was too slow and hunted more than I liked indoors. GM 16-35 f2.8 is in a different league for pure performance.

Let’s talk when Fuji builds a 10-24mm f/1.8 :) in the meantime.....too bad fuji didn’t make an f2.8 version. If Fuji did I would have owned one!!

I think 16-35mm range is still more common.

You entirely missed his point...

You're comparing 2 entirely different types of lens. The wider a constant aperture zoom, the bigger and heavier it's going to be. It's kinda silly to compare the 8-16mm to the Sony 16-35mm, they're two very different lenses. It's like comparing a 24-70mm to a 70-200mm.

10-24mm f2.8 would have been so cool. Issue is Fuji never made it. This is just my concern as now I am missing uwa f2.8 for Fuji crop. My solution is Sony GMaster 16-35f2.8 for my other system. This f2.8 zoom range does not exist in the Fuji world.

16-35mm range more versatile with a 35mm long end in my case.

Yes it’s unfortunate that Fuji does not have anything in comparison. I would but it!

I have the 16-55/2.8 so having the 8-16/2.8 makes 100% sense to me, might go buy the 50-140 tomorrow. I'm so very glad Fuji took the brave step in producing such a good optic, having that 121º of rectilinear goodness, the way it projects and holds its image on the sensor - hard to describe, it super wide but not super deep...

At the end of the day being able to shoot @2.8 and 121º at events leads for some great images without doubt, even when the light falls. But for architecture it's stunning to use, & that's what I used it for this year, sadly that contract is now fulfilled so no more 8-16 for me (gone back to Fuji) & I'm humming about buying my own one as I don't really have that much call for a wide lens day to day any more. Perhaps if I pick up another architecture job next year I can qualify the spend. Yea an XF 10-24/2 would kill it at weddings for those who like zooms, but if you use flash and a slow shutter with ~f8 there is little need to focus and you can use low ISO. I guess it depends on how you like to shoot with the gear you have. The 8-16/2.8 is mind-blowing in every way including the price but totally worth the ticket for those who'll make good use of it.

QUOTED IMAGE

You literally need a 50-140mm for your line of work.......

8-16mm would definitely be a nice expensive lens if your in need of a super ultra wide. 12-24mm FF equiv is an interesting focal length for very niche applications. Many go the cheaper tool and buy the overseas 12mm f/2 manual lens for astro and landscape.

I'm meeting more and more photogs that use a 16-35mm f/2.8 for events. I think it's the appeal to have environmental documentation on the ultra wide and having a semi wide angle f/2.8 at 35mm. The 24mm-35mm is the sweet spot for me when zooming and foot zooming during events. This is totally photographic style dependent.

I recall buying a new 10-24mm f/4 as an interim solution for UWA until the rumoured UWA f/2.8 comes out. When the 10-24mm lacked performance in what I needed I sold it. For me... I was totally disappointed that fuji created a "super" UWA to cover that kind of focal length instead of 10-24mm f/2.8. Kim this is the only reason why I would compare a super ultra wide Fuji 8-16mm f/2.8 to a very common 16-35 f/2.8 equiv (GM16-35 f/2.8)due to speed (also FF shallower dof for my 24-35mm f/2.8 demands).

It is what it is. Now that this is the case of a hole in fuji UWA range I'm going minimalistic and keep life simplistic with fuji. I don't think I'd miss selling my 50-140mm. Picking up a new Canon 16-35 f/2.8mk3 now to update my Canon world.

Just discussing validity in the diversity of gear.......

Oodee mentioned eliminating Sony and Canon in his gear. Nothing wrong with dumping gear as long as the replacement supports what will be void.

I have 8mm up to 55mm with two zooms and as I’ll use two cameras at events I’m never left needing there. That’s 12mm all the way to to 84mm in 135 terms with two lenses and constant f/2.8 prity good for events right there. A 16-35 and 24-70 won’t cover that on eather end, not close to being as wide and lacking in the Tele end too. I have the best of both with that setup. I still prefer two primes though life is just so much better when you can shoot with a nice split like the 16/1.4 and 35/1.4 or the 23/56

Why would you need a 1.8 50-140? I’m curious...
