Versatile Fuji X-T1 my first 10,000 photographs.


Recommended Posts

 

Fuji have updated their lens map and that 90mm f2 (135 equivalent ) looks very interesting. Seems also the 16-55mm will not be coming OIS which is a surprise.

Would be good if the 90mm f2 was to have 1:1 macro as well.

Yes indeed. It would result in the 60mm being sold. 

 

The 90mm would nearly make it a replacement for the 150mm sigma I had..... ahhh, the one lens I miss now I'm not with Canon!

But as it is f2 1:1 macro is extremely unlikely!

Martin can you enlighten me as to why this would be unlikely?

It is the balance of compromises. Fast lenses are more difficult to fully correct; macro likewise places demands especially with regard to flat fields and correcting across the wide range of focus it needs to cover is also a challenge. It might be possible, at a price, but it is unlikely.

 

Have you seen a really good true macro lens from any manufacturer faster than 2.4 (Fuji 60mm) even at 50mm? I couldn't think of one but a bit of research threw up the old manual focus Zuiko 50mm f2 but it was the only mainstream one I found. It was from a less demanding era for lenses though. Tamron do/did a 60mm f2 1:1 macro for APS-C. I seem to be stacking up the evidence against my own argument...

 

Happy to be proved wrong though. And I think if it were going to be 1:2 or better Fuji would flag it as a macro in the roadmap. That's probably the clincher ;)

Thanks for the explanation Martin. I see what you mean. Most seem to be around f2.8.

Thanks for the review - very interesting.  I got the X-T1 in late April and really love it but I haven't used it as much as you.  I'm still preferring the 5Diii for studio work but use the Fuji for most hand held photography.  I'd be interested to know what software you are using for processing please.
