Why do I always read your stage name as Alfasud?

Rob C

 ;D So do I Rob !

I had an alfasud, the 1,5 Ti. I was racing with a friend who had a Ford XR3.

Result: on relatively straight roads, the XR3 always won. On curves, the Alfasud won.



Then I put myself in sport motorcycles.

Are you all going into nostalgic aberrations attack (to stay in photography nomenclature) with this Fuji as its main attractive ?

Marketing department product ? or a real 2012 tool ? Maybe bit of both. But, pfffff...we're still on the same design from the latest ice-age.

Probably more of a marketing department product.

The technical department probably would have added a medium-format sensor to a Fuji GA645 Zi body, the same way Leica conceived their M9. That would have been an exciting tool, ice-age design or not  ;)

Are you sure? I was under the impression that a 25 f/1.0 on a m43 would give the same DoF as a 50 f/2 (2 stops) on a FF. So a 50 f/1,4 on a FF would allow a shallower DoF.

I think I'm sure  ;D At the same camera to subject distance the shots will look different as one lens is a 50mm and the other is 25mm so background items may very well look different but I'm pretty sure f0.95 does beat f1.4. One situation in which I can definitely get shallower DoF from my MFT and 25mm f0.95 is when using it as a sort of psudo macro lens as it'll focus a lot closer than a 50mm f1.4 will, so close in fact that f0.95 isn't really useable unless you're going for a very arty effect. f0.95 does come in very useful in lower available light as I can shoot at much lower ISO than I can with a f1.4.

Given the smaller sensor, could they not have worked a little harder?




Work harder to make a camera which is too small to handle ergonomically and no space for all buttons and levers? Make smaller cameras when the human hands have evolved smaller (blueberry typing size?)

I'll add that I have never seen a lens to resolve at full open f:1.4 as well as the new XF 35mm f:1.4. Tack sharp to the corners, and no color fringing at all.
