>Fuji XT2/XPRO2 + 56mm APD

Hey Fuji bros, I am trying to get some info on how the 56mm performs AF wise on the new XT2 and XPRO2 cameras.

I currently have an XT1 and am wanting to purchase the a 56mm for portraits. I have read about the loss off phase detect AF on the APD version but I am curious how it performs on the newer cameras that have much better AF than my XT1.

I would be using the lens for both studio and environmental portraits that also includes street portraits during the night so AF is really a big deciding factor.

Also interested in seeing images shot with either 56mm lens, if it's not in the metadata please let me know which version it was shot with.

>BONUS ROUND

I have heard the 60mm macro is an epic portrait lens that can rival the 56mm.. But have also heard that macro lenses aren't great for portraits in general (why?) also interested in any thoughts on this. THANKS.

I'm so fucking sick of this shit.

OK, first of all, I'm really impressed with Sony. In a decade they've gone from point & shoots to being one of the world's top three camera companies, a name that can be mentioned seriously in the same sentence as Nikon and Canon. Even more impressively, they've done it pretty much alone, as Zeiss is barely more than a sticker on their high-end lenses. That's very admirable.

However, comparing Sony and Fuji is simply ridiculous, because the only place the two brands actually compete (at least between FF Sony and Fuji's high-end line) is in forum spec sheet arguments. They're as different as a Nissan GTR and a Porsche 911, or as a 17" Thinkpad workstation is from a 13" MacBook Air. They're not direct competitors in any reasonable way, and any experienced photographer will very quickly figure out which brand suits them.

As a documentary photographer, Sony offers nothing that would have made me switch from Nikon to Sony. The differences in sharpness and sensor performance don't mean much to me, and I only would have saved a few ounces of weight, at the expense of moving to a system with an interface I don't like, a lens system that doesn't offer what I'm looking for, and a very high monetary cost. Fuji, on the other hand, gave me an interface I love, a unique and new way of shooting with the Hybrid VF, and most importantly, cut the size and weight of my bag in half while still giving me top-tier fast prime lenses.

With my 23 1.4, I have a lens that's an "equivalent stop" (hereon referred to as a "stop") slower than the Sony 35 1.4 but is half the cost and a fraction of the size and weight and a stop faster at similar size and weight and lower rebate price than the Sony 35 2.8. With my 56 1.2 I'm half a stop slower than the Sony 85 1.4 but again get it for half the cost and much less size and weight. That's what I switched for - a system that gave me 95% of the performance of my FF Nikon rig with 50% of the burden to carry around.

Except it's not a stop slower where it matters: exposure.

On top of those other things, I really like the way the Fuji sensor and lenses render images and find their color profiles very useful. They're very similar to the look I love from film and always strove to replicate with my Nikon images, and having them easily accessible with the Fuji has substantially sped up my workflow.

Now, all of this is only true for me and maybe a few other photographers like me. There are many people out there who fit the Sony much better. If absolute peak performance from your sensor and lenses matters more than other factors, by all means buy an A7. If you enjoy spending hours tweaking a single image to perfection and want the best possible data to do that with, Sony will be great. If you're that kind of photographer, you'll want to throw a Fuji in the trash after a week with it.

Oh, and if performance for action and sports matters, stop looking at mirrorless altogether and buy a Nikon or Canon.

One thing I really won't stand for, though, is this bullshit about Fuji not making good lenses. The X-system is universally acclaimed by everybody who knows what they're talking about and it's for a good reason. The only subpar lenses Fuji makes are their lowest-tier entry level kit lenses, and Sony's equivalents are no better. Fuji is one of the top optics manufactures in the world, an industry leader in everything from television cameras to medical imaging, and Hasselblad even dumped Zeiss in favor of Fuji. Zeiss themselves tried to make lenses for Fuji and failed because they were worse than Fuji's own glass and yet cost more. I think that says a lot.

>>2977088
Oh yeah, I'm well aware of that and have made the same point several times already. I'm putting it this way so that people can't bring up the whole "but APS-C sensors are slower and you get less bokeh" thing and to demonstrate that even under the least favorable terms to Fuji the system still holds its own.

>Zeiss themselves tried to make lenses for Fuji and failed because they were worse than Fuji's own glass and yet cost more.

Funnily enough, those Touit Zeiss (for fuji X and sony E apc mounts) were made by Fujinon anyway.

Zeiss don't make shit for consumers anymore, it's all cosina or Tamron or whatever branded Zeiss. Only "real" Zeiss left are things no one on this forum would ever buy, if any could actually afford them anyway (top end cine lenses, satellite imagining, medical etc., all 100k+++)

Good answer.

You're the first fujian to admit that It's a technically inferior system, does the inherent softness seen here >>2976788 even at iso 200 not concern you? Or the fact the rather pricey 35 1.4 can't hold its own against a $80 nifty fifty, pic related.

Is this a place to ask for gear suggestions in video filming?

I want to start filming my fishing trips. I go out in the bay a lot and sometimes Atlantic Ocean. There's YouTubers in Florida, Texas Gulf, New Jersey shores, etc. But there's no YouTuber that films in the Chesapeake Bay area and figure I could fill the void.

I would like to get the following

An action camera with chest and head mounts depending on what type of fishing I'm doing. A quality microphone for it with a wind screen.

A different camera to mount on my boat for 3rd person view shots. Should I get another action camera or normal camera? Would probably mount it to the windshield of my center console.

A 360 camera that I can stick underwater to get cool shots of sharks around my boat, fish that I've reeled in, etc.

A drone to get aerial shots.

Is $2,500 enough to get started, or should I save a little more? I will probably edit with GoPro's software. I just want basic 1080p. If it actually works out, I could upgrade to better equipment.

I can't wait for it.

I suspect all that glass will make it much sharper than even the Loxia 21, which already is much shatper in the corner than Sigma Art 20mm which everybody praise for being sharp.

More speculation here, but I know that some of these "rifle cameras" were actually made for gunnery training, not for taking better photos. Basically it was a way for trainees, usually aircraft gunners, to learn to properly lead targets and for their instructors to score them, without having to shoot up shitloads of expensive flying targets with real ammo. Here's a similar thing based on a Lewis Gun.

The Leica one is weird because it's more like a normal handheld rifle, but gunners in training did a lot of skeet shooting with normal shotguns and maybe Leica thought there was a market for a camera alternative. (And the fact that there wasn't could explain why so few were ever made.)

On the other hand, it could easily be intended for exactly the same purpose as the Foto-Snaiper.

I worked in television production this summer, studios are slowly switching to using the a7sii.

The camera workers all agree that it's where companies are headed. You get great video quality at a fraction of the cost of the huge cameras. The only downside is the battery life, but that can be mitigated easily.

For low light shoots, they only bring the a7sii, and eventually all cameras will be swapped for them.

I work in film and television full time and you're full of shit.

I mean you're correct that there'll be a trend towards smaller, cheaper camera bodies on more shows (and hopefully professional ergonomics will likewise become cheaper). But that's been happening since the 5Dmk2 came out.

And this is why people hate Sonygger Shills and expect them behind every post.

Bruh, say what you want, but I've actually had first hand experience with this. This scenario isn't a hypothetical "totally bro these will revolutionize the game" statement. I have witnessed the change to smaller cameras to work in tight quarters for low light shoots.

The a7sii is what is being used for that job, and their cheaper price (compared to cinema cameras) is extremely attractive to media companies.

I heard that for filmmaking, you usually don't want a lens with an f-number above 4.0. Can someone explain why that is? I know what the f-number is, but I don't really understand how it relates to things like picture quality.

Hey, /p/! What's your favorite color?

Well yeah I know the way bras look when worn has changed, but I meant that the modern ones must be making tits saggy or something. Boobs in these old '60s photos are always so much perkier for their size than anything natural is today.

Who knows though, maybe there are just as many like that nowadays and it's just that tastes have changed so porn and other nude photography doesn't show them.

my fault, I should have clarified -- by "RGB system" I meant an RGB pixel display, not a color space. the fact that violet is out of gamut in a particular color space does not mean it is impossible to perfectly imitate using different intensities of red, green, and blue light. One reason this is true is, sidestepping any color space quirks, none of the cones in the human eye have negative spectral response. The limitations of the system are purely practical considerations of dynamic range and step. And this is the point I was making -- we cannot distinguish spectral violet from the collection of spectra that equivalently stimulate our RGB cones -- and this is the entire reason that RGB color spaces work. I'd be curious to read about the details of color space manipulation, though.

I really need to take a new one. He was only 10 months in this shot and has changed a lot in the intervening 6 months.

If only I could ever get him to sit still with a lens pointed in his direction.
