XF56mm f1.2 WR – Almost There. Almost Perfect

TLDR This is one of Fujifilm’s finest and best optical lenses that Fuji fanboys and fangirls should consider owning. Especially if you do not own any portrait lenses and plan to get one, you may consider this gem. I know it’s not a cheap lens, so save up the money and aim for this one.Continue reading “XF56mm f1.2 WR – Almost There. Almost Perfect”

SmallRig Retro Handheld Cage Kit for Fujifilm X-T5 

I thank Ivan Joshua Loh from Fujifanboys for lending me this handheld cage for a short review. Before I begin, allow me to clarify, I am not a videographer so I cannot speak about how good the handling of this product is while filming. What I will share is my first impression of it, myContinue reading “SmallRig Retro Handheld Cage Kit for Fujifilm X-T5 “

Viltrox 75mm f1.2 – The First Pro

When I first saw the teaser post from Fuji rumors, my impression was that this is going to be hot selling one within the Fujifilm community if it is priced right. And the turn out to be quite true. At the price of 549 USD, Viltrox priced it so attractively and it sold out immediatelyContinue reading “Viltrox 75mm f1.2 – The First Pro”

Rokinon 35mm f1.2 – Surprisingly . Good .

One fine day, Ivan posted the Rokinon deal on the Fujifanboys Facebook group. It was Rokinon 85mm f1.4 and it was quite a good deal at about 68 SGD (51 USD) or less. I was not tempted somehow. A moment later, Ivan posted yet another Rokinon deal and it was shared by Rayz Lee (aContinue reading “Rokinon 35mm f1.2 – Surprisingly . Good .”

TTArtisan 50mm Tilt f1.4 – Tilting My Point Of View

I think TTArtisan loves “50mm” a lot. They have lots of choices for this mid-telephoto focal length. TTArtisan has the brightest 50mm, the most compact 50mm variants, and now they have introduced the 4th “50mm” and it has the most distinctive function among all their lenses; the tilt function. Similar to the compact 50mm, thisContinue reading “TTArtisan 50mm Tilt f1.4 – Tilting My Point Of View”

XF30mm f2.8 – Fuji’s Smallest Macro Lens

XF30mm f2.8 R LM WR macro, I will call it XF30mm f2.8 here, was first teased in Fujifilm X Summit Omiya 2022 and then finally announced together with X-T5 on the Fujifilm X Summit Tokyo 2022. This lens also marked the “last of 10th anniversary of X mount” released in 2022. Before I share further,Continue reading “XF30mm f2.8 – Fuji’s Smallest Macro Lens”

FunLeader Caplens 18mm f8 Pro – Always Ready To Shoot

We all know the function and purpose of a camera rear body cap. It is to cover and protect the sensor when it is not in use. That’s simple. Some of us might even be aware of some interesting body caps such as Fujifilm XM-FL 24mm, 7artisans 18mm f6.3, or other pinhole body cap lenses.Continue reading “FunLeader Caplens 18mm f8 Pro – Always Ready To Shoot”

TTArtisan 35mm f0.95 – The Second Fastest Lens

TTArtisan has just announced yet another fast, bright lens. The TTArtisan 35mm f0.95 is the second lens after TTArtisan 50mm f0.95. If you are a fan of TTArtisan or somehow followed them closely, you will notice that they are slowly expanding and differentiating their product line-up. While they focus on compactness and portability lenses likeContinue reading “TTArtisan 35mm f0.95 – The Second Fastest Lens”

Fujifilm X-T5 – Photography First Again

My most anticipated camera is finally here. I skipped X-T4 not because it is not a worthy camera to upgrade. An improved battery and In-Body Image Stabilization are most welcome. But something I am unexpected back then is that it came with a fold-out fully articulated screen. Partly because I love how the 3-way tiltingContinue reading “Fujifilm X-T5 – Photography First Again”

TTArtisan 25mm f2 – A Tiny Street Lens

TTArtisan focuses very much on portability and compactness and TTArtisan 25mm f2 is another product born from this idea. Before I begin, I thank TTArtisan for their tremendous support towards me. For readers out there, you can rest assured that I am and always give my honest opinions for their products and that’s including thisContinue reading “TTArtisan 25mm f2 – A Tiny Street Lens”
