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”

I also had a small achievement by getting 100k views on this blog this year (A big thank you, everyone!). It is challenging to juggle my job, photo shoots,Continue reading “My Favorite Photos in 2022”

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”

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″

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”

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.

TTArtisan AF 27mm f2.8 – The First

TTArtisan had been teasing us about their very first autofocus (AF) lens since September 2021. While there was very little information shared about the 32mm f2.8 lens, the only thing we know is that it will be available for various camera systems. However, the much anticipated AF lens did not arrive in many systems exceptContinue reading “TTArtisan AF 27mm f2.8 – The First”

TTArtisan 50mm f2 – A Tiny Portrait lens

I think TTArtisan has a soft spot for “50mm” and they released the 50mm f0.95 not too long ago. And now, TTArtisan had just released its third 50mm lens and it is the most compact 50mm lens TTArtisan ever made but it is the slowest in the lineup yet. But there is something different aboutContinue reading “TTArtisan 50mm f2 – A Tiny Portrait lens”

Laowa 10mm f4 Cookie – The Modestly Priced Compact Ultra-wide lens

Usually, for the same focal length, there are basically 2 paths for making it. The first one is to make with better optic, faster, brighter and premium price tagged lens. The second one is to make a smaller, compact and wisely priced lens. And this Laowa 10mm f4 is the later one. Laowa Lenses (alsoContinue reading “Laowa 10mm f4 Cookie – The Modestly Priced Compact Ultra-wide lens”
