But cost a whole lot less! With the economy the way it is, and photography being such an equipment centric hobby/profession, you may find it challenging to stretch your funds […]

Fuji X-Pro1 w/ Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Aspherical: Samples

For the past week, I’ve been testing many M Mount lenses on the Fuji X-Pro1. I will have these tests in the up coming days, but for the time being, I wanted to give you a sneak peek of some “real world” shots. These images were made with the Fuji X-Pro1 with the Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 Aspherical Lens. The Fuji X-Pro1 has a APS-C sized sensor with a 1.5x Crop Factor. So the Voigtlander 15mm F4.5 lens would have the 35mm film equivalent of a 22.5mm lens. This is the closest you can get to the very popular 21mm focal […]
