I’m currently in Tokyo after spending a few days talking at the CP+ Show in Yokohama on the Fujifilm stand. I have also spent a very productive time with the Fuji X-Series team giving feedback that I’ve gathered from other photographers (and myself of course) regarding the X-Series. You may recall I visited Japan last year for a similar exercise. More on that in a blog post when I return to the UK but needless to say it stil remains so impressive that Fujifilm are taking time to listen, and impliment in many cases to requirements that we, as a photography community, are asking for.
In the meantime I just wanted to pop a couple of images up really quickly as I’m so impressed with the Fujifilm X-T1.
I’m going to do a fuller “initial review” tomorrow evening (JST) so check back then. Part of my trip has also allowed me to use pre-production models of the XF56mm F1.2 and XF10-24mm F4 lenses. Whilst they are pre-productions I’m extremely excited by the lens combinations. The 56mm especially I have been waiting for for a while and I know already it’s going to be a key lens for me when shooting weddings.
But the X-T1…..well, for the time being, all I’m saying is “Wow!”. The view finder is simply gorgeous, low light and AF performance is again improved and AF-C is now very useable.
I’m shooting all day tomorrow in Tokyo but will put a fuller initial review of the Fuji X-T1 and discuss the new lenses to a point too. I’ll put high-res images online for images not shot on the pre-production lenses too.
For the time being, a few images from a quick shoot around the financial district this morning, and one from CP+ (you can probably work out which one 🙂 ).
