Fujifilm X-T3: Fringer EF-FX Smart Adapter Firmware 2.40 Released For Fujifilm X-T3


Fujifilm X-T3 got much improved AF performance. I found it’s so far the best X camera that can use adapted EF mount lenses. Now all its full sensor covered PDAF points are supported. And as the low light AF capability has been improved to -3EV, AF successful rate got greatly improved. Meanwhile, WIDE/TRACKING mode and FACE/EYE focus are all works much better. Please watch this demo video:

The improvements of V2.40 firmware includes

  1. For X-T3 (and all coming cameras with X-Trans IV CMOS), we have optimized PDAF performance of all the lenses (on the tested and optimized lens list). Now you can leverage its full sensor coverage PDAF focus points and get improved AF performance.
  2. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    1. Tamron SP 70-200/2.8 Di VC USD G2
    2. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS
    3. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS + EF 1.4X II
    4. Sigma 70-200/2.8 EX DG HSM OS + EF 2X II
    5. Tokina ATX 11-16/2.8 PRO DX (I & II)
    6. Tokina ATX 11-20/2.8 PRO DX

Photons to Photos: Fujifilm X-T3 vs X-T2 Read Noise Comparison


Photons to Photos released some interesting Read Noise results for the Fujifilm X-T3 that are worth digging into. We are still waiting for a dynamic range comparison from Photons to Photos, but the new sensor inside the X-T3 does seem to perform better than the old one in the X-T2 in some circumstance based on the data. ISOs between ISO400 and ISO800 should also be avoided. The data can be manipulated here.

Fujifilm X-T3: First Lok – Who Needs Full Frame?

Every time Fujifilm launches a new generation of APS-C camera there is a collective groan from full frame junkies about when will Fujifilm release a full frame camera. The response to this groan is almost always who needs full frame? Thankfully the Fujifilm X-T2 proved a lot of full frame fans wrong and even converted a few, but now the Fujifilm X-T3 is here to continue what the X-T2 started.

Fringer is testing their EF-FX Smart Adapter with firmware 2.40 on the Fujifilm X-T3 and it seems to be working quite well. This demo is in pretty low light and the focus accuracy and speed of the of the Sigma 50-100mm/1.8 through the EF-FX Smart Adapter is very good.

Fujifilm X-T3 + XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR Weekend Roundup

The Fujifilm X-T3 and Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR will be a very attractive option for many photographers going forward so they make sense to review together. It seems that many of the post-announcement, pre-shipment videos include the specialized Fujinon XF 200mm f/2 OIS WR in their reviews, which kind of makes sense since the biggest improvement the X-T3 has over the X-T2 is speed.

I never had an issue with the speed of my Fujifilm X-T2 and even felt it held it’s own against the Sony a9 and a7RIII, but it was definitely not quite there yet speed wise. Now it looks like the X-T3 will fall somewhere between the two with very usable electronic shutter. This is probably thanks to Samsung as many have ventured to guess, but no one knows for sure yet.

Samsungs old BSI sensor still performs very well against even Sony’s best chips, but the X-T3 doesn’t seem to outperform the X-T2 much from all the comparisons out there. It just seems to leave a little more noise so that details are preserved, which is fine by me, but will disappoint others. If the camera outperformed the X-T2 by a stop or two at lowlight performance I would lean very heavily towards Samsung, but Fujifilm could still be using a Sony chip or maybe a Panasonic chip?
