The Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM review

Ever since investing some of my hard earned money in some Leica gear, I of course started researching good lenses for the system. Knowing that native Leica lenses are sublime, they are also wickedly expensive, so I tried to widen my horizon and look beyond the german wonders. One name kept popping up when researching fast…

The Fujifilm XF 90mm f/2 review

The Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 LM WR was announced last monday alongside the Fujifilm X-T10 (which I wrote about here). Completing the line up of classic portraiture lenses, this 135mm full frame eq. FOV has been on the wishlist of many portrait and fashion photographers using the Fujifilm X series and its Fujinon XF lens eco-system….

The Fujifilm X-T10 Review – A small powerhouse

It’s May 2015, and today the world has seen the launch of yet another great X-series camera from FUJIFILM. The X-T10 is the newest addition to the “T” series, which started with the introduction of the X-T1. With its smaller physical footprint it might not seem like much, but don’t let the size fool you. Beneath the modest…

Fujifilm X30 does Rock ‘n Roll – a different review

I have owned and used both the X10 and the X20. I really loved their versatility and dedicated super-macro mode as well as the very handy f/2-2.8 zoom lens with a broad range of 7.1-28.4mm (28-112mm full frame eq.) But in the end I always ended up selling them off because I always used the…

Ze Razor – A Leica Summicron-M 90mm f/2 review

Them Germans! They sure know how to craft some decent quality glass. And by decent I mean “holy sh** this glass is nice!” As I’m sure most of you know this german quality of craft from the hands of Leica doesn’t exactly come cheap, but every once in a while you luck out, and something presents…

Closer – An MCEX-11 review

Not a macro photographer, not a macro photographer, not a macro photographer. But I need to try this! Thats me in a nutshell. My disciplin prohibits, but my curiosity prevails. I guess this is a good thing, since expansion of skills is valuable to an extent. Whats great about todays photography world is that tech…

Rikenon 55mm f/1.2 review

Vintage lens review time! Some weeks ago I was browsing the classifieds as I regularly do, in search of good ol’ photography gold. My search never really broadens enough to include the word “Ricoh” but on this particular day I wanted to see what the going rate for the Ricoh GR was. What popped up…

Mr. Big – The Fujinon XF 50-140mm review

Happy new year everyone! I hope you had a great start to 2015. I know I did. Before I get down to business I’m going to do a shameless plug for my new 365 days project. I never did one of those, so I guess 2015 will be the year. I hope to finish, but…

Mr. T. – an X100T review

So what could I possibly write that hasn’t already been written about the X100 series from Fujifilm? The truth, not much! Yet here I am, scribbling down words to try and describe my thoughts about the third iteration of this amazing camera. In fact this is really the first time I have written anything about…

Graphite Silver: My X-T1 review part 2b

(Click for Part 1 & Part 2 of the extensive X-T1 review) Sorry for dragging my review of the X-T1 in the long. The reasons herefore are multiple. When Fujifilm annouched the Graphite Silver version of this magnificent camera, I was smitten! The thing just looked amazing. As a sucker for pretty thing I decided to put my “old”…

WCL-x100 The Wide Wide Street

I know I’m a little late to the party on this one, but after the last month of use I really thought I needed to add my take on this little lens/converter. This is by no means a proper review, more some ramblings and thoughts about my usage and my street photography The WCL-x100 product…

X-vinTage1: My Fujifilm X-T1 review part two

Check out part one of the review here Using vintage glass is something that I really enjoy. Given the contents of this blog, it might not come as a huge surprise to some of you. I started shooting vintage glass on the X-Pro1 a couple of years ago when I got a cheap Fujinon 50mm…
