Ok folks. Here are sample shots from the X-T1 compared to my 5D MK III. Have been really busy that I didn't have time to do a proper test (tripod or manual mode to set shutter speed). Both cameras were set to f1.2, 400 ISO, and did some manual exposure compensation to get the shutter speed roughly the same. I'll do a better one once I have more time, but these pics should give you a general idea of its capabilities. I believe that it was set to the Velvia color mode. The camera has 4 different color modes to reflect different types of fuji films. These were straight out of the camera, no enhancement to vibrancy or saturation.
Fujifilm X-T1 vs. Canon 5D Mark III
The lenses - Canon's 85mm 1.2L II vs. Fujinon 56mm 1.2 (85mm equivalent APS-C).
Random sample pics (X-T1) from my walk-around in the city today:
56mm 1.2 all taken wide open:
23mm 1.4 (35mm equivalent) @ 1.4 and 5.6 respectively.
These photos are super SHARP and I'm really happy with the quality of the glass and the sensor's color reproduction. I am so happy with the quality of these photos that the X-T1 will probably be my grab and go set. The only downside is tracking moving objects... perhaps I haven't figured it out yet, but even with 8fps, I had a hard time taking moving objects in focus. Not that big of an issue, because I'm not a sports photographer and for those occasions that I do, I have my 5DIII.
Next post will compare the two lense in a semi-controlled environment.
