Thankyou :-) Just a VSCO base preset with my own colour tweaks in lightroom. Think the preset was gold 200.

I was in an agricultural lot on the North Shore of Oahu recently shooting a piece on a farmer/water rights activist and forgot that my X-Pro and 23mm was in fully-manual mode. I saw a nice opportunity for a snapshot as we were walking to another location and without paying attention to my settings, snapped a quick photo on the fly. I keep image review on my camera disabled so I didn't notice the massive overexposure. This is what ISO 400, DR200, 1/1000th, and f/1.4 looked like in post (shot RAW, processed in LR5):



A bit of (morbid) curiosity led me to play with dropping the EV slider a bit, and to apply a bit of sharpening and a VSCO preset. And lo and behold, at -2.3 EV, this is what I came up with:



Now, this isn't exactly ready for 20x30 enlargement or submission into any landscape photo contests...but considering the huge overexposure and wide-open aperture, I was quite impressed with the DR present in the RAW, and the IQ while wide-open. Now I'm not in the habit of overexposing nearly two and a half stops, nor am I partial to large-aperture landscape photography, so I've never really had the occasion to push the X-Pro's sensor and glass to this extent; seeing this kind of capability is a first for me.

And I thought it was pretty cool.

Thanks, that is cool. And having lived on Oahu for 5 years in the 80s, kind of nice too.

About 50 years ago, the letters EBC began to appear on the front of Fujinon lenses, sanding for Electronic Beam Coating. Now replaced by Super EBC.

Those who have used Fujinon lenses for that period of time have a healthy respect for the ability of Fujinon lenses to control flare or resist flare.

Why is this so surprising?

It's one of the best and longest standing benefits of shootin Fuji/Fuji glass.

Simple. Because I didn't know that My Fujinon lens use has started with the Fuji X100 and later the X-Pro but I am sharing in a new found healthy respect for them!

A few favorite night exposures during a clear night at Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii.

Moonrise over Halemaumau Crater. Fuji X-T1, 23mm f/1.4. ISO 2500, f/2.8, 20 sec:


Ohia tree. Fuji X-T1, 23mm f/1.4. ISO 1600, f/1.4, 10 sec (at full size the sky shows shallow DOF...prints beautifully!):


Quite impressed by the astrophotographical potential of the combo...have a few wider shots of the same area taken with the 14mm coming in a separate post as well!

It's one of the best and longest standing benefits of shootin Fuji/Fuji glass.
The resistance to flare and ghosts is mainly a lens element geometry and internal blackening thing; multiple layer coating is equally available to all the manufacturers.
The Fujifilm lens designers probably enjoyed their break from designing 99:1 zooms for sports television and US$110,000 cinema lenses to knock out a few small masterpieces for the X system.

They probably went back to their experience with the 690 and 670 range of gear.

Have anyone tried this lens on a X-Pro1? How does it feel in the hand? How does the AF work in it? As fast as the XF16mm? I'm tempted... :-)

Yesterday I went to Donostia / San Sebastian to enjoy a full day with my wife and three children. I took my X-Pro1 and the XF 23mm 1.4 with me. Here you have some pictures from that day. If you want to see more pictures, click in a photo...





I met a young man from Switzerland, with his X100T... maybe he is in this forum...
