I can’t think of a trip that I’ve taken recently when the Fuji 56mm f/1.2 hasn’t joined me. Before purchasing, I looked at a lot of samples around the web and they always impressed me. It’s one of the reasons I’m still hooked on the Fuji X Mount system. There is some excellent Olympus glass […]Read More Still Lovin’ the Fuji 56mm f/1.2
I’m not one for using preset jpeg effects often, but I’ve come to like one from Ricoh quite a bit. The Positive Film effect on the GR suits my tastes.
