I managed to get my hands on a pre-release copy of the Fuji 23mm f/2 lens and my first impressions are very positive. The lens is well built and solid and only weighs about 180 grams. No images to share because the lens was just a prototype but I think Fuji has hit it out of the park with this one. Hit the jump for the video and more!

Cameras come and go but when I bought a Leica M 240 I finally had a keeper. It was a beautifully crafted instrument with legendary optics that produced stunning images. So when I decided to sell the Leica and buy a Fuji X100T for street photography my friends nearly staged an intervention. But it turns out there were some very good reasons to make the switch. Hit the jump to find out why!
Fuji’s latest compact APS-C shooter comes equipped with a 28mm (equivalent) lens, an articulated LCD and the same sensor as the X100T and delivers top of the line performance for about half the price of an X100T. We put this excellent little camera to the test as an everyday shooter on the street. Is this the Ricoh GR killer you’ve been waiting for? Hit the jump to read our Fuji X70 street photography review!
The original X-Pro1 was introduced in 2012 as a follow up to Fuji’s incredibly successful X100. It was the first interchangable lens camera to use Fuji’s new X-Trans sensor technology and a lot of people saw it as the ultimate Leica-killer. But sluggish auto-focus and lack luster performance meant it never lived up to the hype. Fast forward 4 years and the Fuji X Pro2 is (finally) released and I remember thinking, all Fuji has to do is give us an X-Pro1 that lives up to modern camera standards and they’re going to have a winner.
