Fujinon XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR Squeaky Toy?

A Overman posted on the DPR forums a short video of his XF18mm making an odd squeaky sound that makes my German Shepard come running every time I play the video. Hopefully, this is a one-off issue, and Overman states that the lens still works fine even with the annoying noise. Has anyone else experienced […]

Fujinon XF60mm f/2.5 OIS Macro II Patent Found

Earlier today asobinet posted some Fujinon XF60mm f/2.5 OIS Macro II patents from IP Force.

Fujifilm XF18mm/XF23mm/XF33mm Interview: It’s All About The Resolution And The Future of APS-C (Fujifilm X-H2)

Fujinon XF 18mm f/1.4 vs XF 16mm f/1.4 Concise Comparison and Focus Clutch Thoughts

The Fujinon XF 18mm f/1.4 was an interesting move by Fujifilm and while it is has been universally praised for its resolution it still hasn’t won everyone over that already loved the Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4.

DPRTV: Fujifilm’s Best Primes 18mm / 23mm / 35mm

Fujifilm has a lot of great glass and most of the time Fujifilm has an optically excellent copy of a lens that pairs up well with a lens that has a specific character or characteristic. These picks are DPRTV’s and I don’t agree with all of them (XF35mm f/1.4 is a must-own), but they do […]
