^^ Man that is super cold, specially for us folks here in CA. Its been raining here for quite a while making me a bit sick of it. Don't know if I can handle snow all the time.

I mean, it's only snowed here 2 or 3 times so far this season... I was born in Wisconsin so I kinda miss heavier snow :lol:

It was snowing earlier tonight, but now it's turned to rain... lovely. Who doesn't love rain in just above freezing temperatures? :rolleyes:

Hello Fuji hive mind ...

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 ... I've not been giving my X-Pro much love of late but I have also been shooting a lot of 50mm and simply don't have that focal length for my Fuji. I've been using manual focus only on my 5DII for months now (and have actually rarely been happier) and reckon I could adapt to Fuji focus peak on the X-Pro1 if I put in the hours, and I wonder if it might be a good little lens to pick up in order to have that focal length with my Fuji camera. I have a project in mind for later this year where my little X-Pro might be advantageous over the 5DII but I would want to have my 35mm (do have for Fuji) and 50mm focal lengths both covered, and this seems like a decent way to go about it.

Thanks in advance,

Owain.

I love the Fuji 35/1.4, but I kept seeing images from the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 Speedmaster. There was a flash sale and I gave in to the Noctilux fantasies of years past :).

The 35/0.95 is a fantastic lens if you want a manual focus lens in the normal range and the fast aperture is fun. The rendering is something special.

The Bokeh is very smooth. It is organic and looks natural.


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

I saw a video on the Mitakon the other day, it does look really nice but I'd be looking to pick up something cheap in the event that I feel the need for a 50mm equivalent on the Fuji. I think I own three 50mm lenses already between different film cameras I've picked up which had them and my Canon 50/1.4 so I don't really want to spend too much on a focal length I already have covered in different systems ... if I were looking to buy for Fuji though, it would be between the Mitakon and the original 35mm f/1.4 which also has mythical status among Fuji users.

The Viltrox EF to FX focal reducer with AF is also available on Amazon now for $200. Then you could probably use any of the 50mm lenses you already own.

That would work for my Canon lens but I also have an old Yashica 50mm f/2 - although I have an EF adapter ring for that too so the same adapter would work and it's a Manual Focus lens so it's not like I lose AF or anything. Annoyingly I have a better Yashica 50/1.4 which is screw mount but hopefully the camera it is attached to now works.

Thanks for the advice, I'll google said adapter.

I love old Yashica lenses. I use several ML C/Y lenses via a similar adapter to the one I just mentioned, as well as several m42 mount lenses. You just have to get the EF adapters for those lenses first, effectively making them EF lenses to then use via the EF adapter for Fuji mount. All the lenses I've tested doing this still have full focus range.

It seems Mitakon/Zhongyi also make ann EF-FX Lens Turbo adapter, and I've just read a review of their Nikon one on Fstoppers that was pretty positive. This seems like it might be the way to go. Thanks.

Some pictures from a day trip with the X-Pro ... a museum attendant, and an old castle only somewhat restored ... and even then it was restored 'a lo Partido Popular' which is sort of like "I'm paying for this restoration so it will look like this and my mate Pepe is going to handle it" rather than an actual historial restoration.

A test shot, with the X-T3 to set the lighting. Couldn't figure out why I was having to set the key light to full power and it being a little under ( a good 2 stops ) what I wanted. It just was not feeling right at all. Turns out someone forgot to remove the protective cover from the bulb :rolleyes: Only found that out as we were stripping the gear after the shoot as there was a sock on the deep para. Lessons never stop presenting them selves.

The Mitakon is the one I currently have. It works very well, but it is prone to some strange flares in certain situations. I'm not sure if the Viltrox is better in that regard.

Hmm what does a Fuji macro rig look like?
Well I mean apart from using the 60 and 80mm fuji lenses somebody must have been creative and found some great ways.


If history has proven anything. it's that evolution always wins!!

You can use macro rings or just invert your lens to get a macro result or just crop in a bit with a lens that get in close.

Yea it was me, burnt a little bit of the plastic on the cover too. Man talk about schoolboy mistake. :oops: Lease there was loads of room to shoot a bit under and push in post. Just to finish off the edits on a few of these then a few days off before I have to go shooting on Sunday as I need to shoot the new EMEA HQ for a tech company before it opens on the Monday, before the staff move in.
