Here's one from lunch. I finally brought my dad's old FD 70-210mm f/4 out for a real spin. Suprisingly good lens. It's got some color fringing like most non-L FD lenses, but pretty good bokeh, quite sharp (especially at f/5.6, but definitely quite good at f/4), a nice macro mode that enables moderately decent closeup work (not real macro by any stretch, but 1:4 magnification.) Can't wait for the focus peaking firmware update on Tuesday...should make this a fairly decent alternative to the 55-200 (though this is bigger).

These are both at the 70mm end in the macro mode, BTW. Took some test shots at the longer end, and it performed well, but nothing exciting to share.

nope, field curvature away from the shooter is very common, especially for wide angle lenses.

I think depending on the optical formula used and such it can go either way. Given its a little less blurry in the edges than the center I can't really think of much reason for this other than some field curvature in the lens since it appears to be an optical effect, and nothing to due with processing, or the sensor etc.

My XE-1 was just packed into a box this morning so I can't test my 35 for the same

A pretty massive 22,000+ acre wildfire burning out here in Southern California right now.

Wow! Looks like an atomic bomb mushroom!

More shots from the evening walk. The light was changing from minute to minute which made it very interesting, but also frustrating, because sometimes when I had framed the shot the light I wanted was already gone. It was also really windy and cold. I had to wear gloves in the middle of July! It was worth it though.

Before I saw that last pic and realized it was you, I thought:

"Damn, that looks like Sør-Trøndelag".


Nice shots!

I was out for a little walk around an older industrial section of town and I happened to stumble across a good few hundred of thousands of dollars of cars. Taken with the Fujinon 35mm and X-e1

TJP: That last one on the right looks like a Skyline-ized Z.

It should! Its the new "Skyline", or GT-R. Beautiful cars, and honestly for the price, one of the best performance per dollar cars on the market.

This one looks great printed big, but looses something when sized for web viewing I think. Taken on X-E1 and 35mm F/1.4

Quick one from me.
FujiFilm X-E1 and Canon FD 500/4.5 L
A HUGE crop, this thing is no bigger than my thumb.
Low light, after the rains, ISO 1600, yeah noisy, shrug.
Low shutter speed too, 100.
Hard to focus, anywho, enough complaining...

HelenaN-- I really like your work both with the Fuji 14 and the RX1. I confess I am having a hard time distinguishing between them. You are making me pause as I consider an RX1. I know there is a big difference between focal lengths but I am curious. Are you seeing a big difference as a landscape photographer working with smaller apertures and RAW files?

^^ The other question is at what output size. At Web-sized screen output I think there's very little reason to go for one over the other vis-a-vis resolution and FF vs 1.5. DR and high ISO seem close enough.

But at large print size or for certain output... that might change somewhat.
