Thank you, always appreciate new tests, especially for the Fuji mount.

 

Though I'll be keeping my Fuji 14mm. :)

Maybe you will like the upcoming Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R review as well ... maybe this evening ...  :ph34r:

Finally a review! (I've been checking the site a couple times per day, hoping that something might crop up).

 

MOAR! :)

Welcome to my tax hell. It was bad enough in Germany but doing it in two countries in parallel is gaga.

This plus some server issues are eating way more time than anticipated.

Markus has his own stress points so in total this is probably the most constrained photozone season ever.  :wacko:

I am certain I will, since I didn't wait for that review and bought one already! It had a good sale earlier this year.

Hum. The question is why this lens instead of the fuji 14mm (other than the 2mm difference). I.e, was there much difference in contrast, colour (clarity) or rendering ?

 

Also curious if the 10-24 zoom or 56f1.2 are in the queue ?

The 56mm is on the horizon. The 10-24mm will be tested once the initial QC misery has passed.  :rolleyes:

So is the 10-24 also a candidate for the "hall of shame" already?

It's an OSS lens so I don't have any faith in this one.

In your description of the Touit 12 mm you didn't talk much about the nicely shaped, but badly designed lenshood. So far, it's the worst I've had to use during the last 6 years. It has lots of resistance and I'm always afraid to break it. At this price, that was a bit of a surprise.  <_<

What are you doing to your lens hoods?  :lol:

 

The lens hood from the 100-400mm is also not hot IMHO but I am not religious there.

Occassionally I try to use them. The 100-400 hood is a pleasure to use compared to this touit yoghurt-beaker...

Regarding the focus ring on the 100-400 - what is your issue there?

You have to turn forever to change a setting but as such it's darn accurate.

Other than that? I think the aperture ring feels cheap.

"You have to turn forever" is my issue - sorry, I didn't see your reply earlier.

 

Also, I nearly can't recognize the mark on the distance scale, so I sometimes don't know where the lens is focussed. But that's a display issue. I like to have it accurate when I turn the ring slooooowly and quickly, when I turn the ring fassssst. There has to be a kind of sensor to couple the focus-by-wire-ring with the 3 drives of the AF. So, all I want is an acceleration algorithm, which speeds up the drives. I find the AF pretty quick in good light, so it can go fast and I don't see a very good reason for all time snail speed.

 

Beside of this rant I'm looking forward to see how it works with X-T2 :)
