The Fujifilm XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6R LM OIS WR has the potential to be a very usable lens. Weather sealed, optically stabilised and with a very versatile focal length range. But long throw zooms like this one are notoriously weak optically because of the amount of elements needed to get that zoom range. Does this lens live up to the Fujinon reputation for optical quality, or does it fall short because it's trying to do too much?

This is partly a review of the fantastic Ricoh GR and partly a farewell as this camera will soon be replaced in my set up by the Fuji X Pro 1. I have loved this camera and it is only the limitation of the fixed lens that is making me change it.
What's the best lens for Fuji X Series Cameras? Is a question I get asked all the time. So here's the answer. If you only buy one lens for your Fujifilm X Pro 2, Fuji X-T2 etc cameras then get this one. This is also the best focal length for weddings as well as street photography in my opinion as it is the most versatile lens length.
Using old lenses on mirrorless cameras like the Fuji X Pro 1 can be rewarding and at times frustrating. In this video I talk about my experiences using manual focus on the X Pro 1 and using focus peaking.

The Fuji X Pro 1 is 2 years old now but with the constant firmware updates Fuji have been releasing for the camera in that time, it is as good as a whole new camera with new features and capabilities compared to when it came out. I took it to Goodwood Revival to put it through it's paces.
Both the Fujifilm X-T10 and X Pro 1 can be bought for about the same money at the moment, thanks to the Fuji X Pro 2 being launched later this month, the venerable X Pro 1 has been heavily discounted. So, which is the best camera for shooting weddings? I took both cameras along and put them to a real world test and give you my thoughts.
I've been using the X Pro 1 for a year now along side my Nikon DSLR kit. But as a professional photographer I couldn't quite make the jump into mirrorless full time with the X Pro 1. Now the XT-1 has changed all that. Here are my first thoughts on the camera.
To purchase the Nissin i40 from Amazon click here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00N730WFU If you're looking for a TTL flash for Fuji you don't have many choices. The EF500 is still not out, so it's EF42 or i40. I took the Nissin i40 and shot a wedding with it to see if it could handle the demanding world of pro wedding photography.
