Review of the Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR Lens

I’m a big fan of zoom lenses. For my photography and budget, they provide great value and versatility, and modern zoom lenses sacrifice little, if any, image quality compared to prime lenses.

This Adapter Lets You Autofocus Leica M Lenses on Fujifilm Cameras

Leica M mount lenses are all manual focus, but that doesn't mean you can't "add" autofocus... with the right adapter. That's what Fotodiox has created with their latest gambit: a specialized adapter that lets you focus M-mount lenses on Fujifilm cameras by moving the lens back and forth as you focus.

Zeiss Unveils ‘Touit’ Lenses for Mirrorless Cameras, Publishes Specs and Samples

At Photokina 2012 last September, Zeiss announced that it was working on a new family of lenses for mirrorless cameras. This past March, we got a closer look at the lenses, which were outed as a 12mm f/2.8, 32mm f/1.8, and 50mm f/2.8 for Fuji's X mount and Sony's E mount.

Fuji May Announce Entry-Level X-Series Mirrorless Camera with Tiny 2/3 Sensor

Update: It seems that this rumor was off base. The latest word is that there is indeed a 2/3 sensor coming, but it will appear in a new XS2 fixed lens camera. The upcoming entry-level X-Series camera will continue to feature a APS-C-sized sensor. That makes a lot more sense.

We've heard that Fujifilm is primed to make some camera announcements this summer, and according to Digicame-Info one of those announcements may be a new entry-level X-mount mirrorless camera. The camera is expected to be announced in the summer (possibly June, according to PhotoRumors) and made available in the fall for anywhere between $550 and $700.

But it's not the price, release date, or even the existence of a potential entry-level mirrorless ILC from Fujifilm that has people talking. Instead, it's the rumor that the camera will come to market sporting a tiny 2/3-inch X-Trans CMOS sensor.
