Fuji has made a new interactive website which allows us to take a virtual test drive all of their X-mount lenses and it is pretty awesome. In the first column, you can scroll through until you find a lens you want to test out, then move over to the second column and click on which aperture you want to “shoot at”. If the selected lens happens to be a zoom lens, you can select from different focal lengths in the third column. Then all you have to do is click on the shutter release button on the right hand side (or press the Take Photo button). A light box will pop-up with a photos which was taken using the settings you select.
Here’s a sample of the X50-140mm f2.8, at 85mm. It also let’s you know the exposure settings each sample photo was taken at, which is also kinda nice:
Here’s the XF23 f1.4 (shot at f1.4):
How They Did It
To capture the sample photos they used a Fujifilm X-T1, set it on a tripod and ran each lens through the motions before swapping it out for the next in line. Each lens was shot at every full F-stop it offers. For the zoom lenses, they were tested at all their apertures on three or four different focal lengths. They also make note on the website that each sample photo was taken using the following settings:
- JPEG (Fine)
- Provia / Standard
- White Balance: Manual
- Metering: Multi
- ISO: 200
- Shutter speed: Auto
- Focus: AF-S
- Noise reduction for long exposures: On
- Lens Modulation Optimizer: On
- Optical Image Stabilization (if available): Off
The sample photos are straight out of the camera, with no editing applied other than being scaled down to 2500×1667.
