    A couple adaptable lens bargains.

    I found some nice buys this week which will adapt nicely to my Fuji system. One is the Leica 70-200 f4.5R zoom and the other is a Carl Zeiss 300mm f4 prime lens. They should be decent lenses and were quite affordable. I'll post images and test results when they arrive next week. Happy black...

    Pixel Peeping the 7 Artisans 25mm f1.8 Lens

    I was impressed with the lovely and inexpensive 7 Artisans Fisheye lens and promised myself I would try more of their products as they became available in the U.S. Amazon is now shipping the very inexpensive 25mm f1.8 in the Fujifilm mount so I ordered one. How inexpensive? $69. $69? That...

    Rokinon 85mm f1.4 Telephoto

    ROK stands for Republic of Korea. So it isn't hard to figure out where the Rokinon lenses got their name since, after all, they are made in South Korea. I have tested two of them. I had a 14mm f2.8 that proved to be too large and heavy for my tastes since it was designed for a full frame...

    Lens Test

    Yesterday I spent a few moments testing the difference between the image quality of zoom vs. prime lenses. I used my usual subject - my garden shed. I thought I should try to crop my way to a usable image from the tests and this is what I came up with.

    Testing the New 7 Artisans 7.5mm Fisheye Lens

    During the month I waited for this lens to arrive from China, the on-line dealers began offering it. I should have known. At any rate it is a 7.5mm full frame fisheye lens for the Fuji X mount. What that means is that it covers the entire sensor with a 180 degree angle of view measured...

    My wife and I visited the local "Blueberry Festival" yesterday. In between following from vendor to vendor, I found a few things that interested me.

    Famous Lady for Derrell

    Derrell and I were comparing notes once on our old Contaflex SLR's. I thought he might like seeing an image made with mine equipped with a Zeiss Tessar 45mm fixed lens. The subject? The famous Venus de Milo. Hand held at f2.8 (wide open) on ektachrome 100 in St. Peter's Basilica at the...

    Adapted lenses

    One of the advantages of mirrorless cameras is that the distance between lens mount and sensor is less than it is with a camera with a swinging mirror. That means that, with an adapter, you can mount virtually any SLR or DSLR lens to your mirrorless camera body. Here is a shot of my Fuji E2...

    My Barn

    Nothing special. Just a shot of my barn. She was built in 1856 and was kind enough to sit still for a portrait.

    The F Lineup

    An old image I found among my slides of some of my Nikon gear. If you aren't familiar with Nikon they are (L to R) Ftn, F2 Photomic, F5, F3 with motor drive, F4. I sold them all long ago.
