XF18-120mm – Meet The “Worst” Lens of 2022

If you are aware, DPReview TV has done it again. Yes, this is the second time DPReview commented that the Fujifilm XF lens is not sharp, and unfortunately, XF18-120mm f4 is that lens. The first one was back in 2020 and they commented that the XF50mm f1 was soft. In DPReview TV, they have thisContinue reading “XF18-120mm – Meet The “Worst” Lens of 2022″

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”

4 months later, here comes the second flagship camera from Fujifilm, the X-H2. Every camera manufacturer usually releases one flagship camera to showcase the state-of-the-art technologies that they offer. But this is not the case for Fujifilm, they have a different approach, instead of releasing one flagship camera, they release two flagship cameras. Come toContinue reading “X-H2 – The best of what APS-C can be (Part II)”

Before all else, I would like to thank Ms Carmen, Marketing Manager of Fujifilm Singapore, for loaning the X-H2S for review. By the time this review is online, the camera unit had returned back to Fujifilm Singapore.

XF18-120mm -A Good Zoom Lens for Photographers?

First of all, I would like to thank Ms Carmen, Marketing Manager of Fujifilm Singapore, for loaning the XF18-120mm and X-S10. By the time this review is online, the units had returned back to Fujifilm Singapore. In this hands-on experience, I used this lens for photography only and nothing related to videography. Because I doContinue reading “XF18-120mm -A Good Zoom Lens for Photographers?”

XF23mm f1.4 R – is the Classic still worth buying in 2022?

After three months of delay, the successor of the classic XF23mm f1.4 R has finally arrived on our shore this month. While the price of the newly launched lens is priced at USD 900, the predecessor is easily available between USD 600 to 700~ ish. Is it worth saving the $200 ~ $300 difference? InContinue reading “XF23mm f1.4 R – is the Classic still worth buying in 2022?”
