  • Novel

    Cool. I wonder what kind of vignette on Fuja versus full frame and edges. As if this medium format is not particularly complete, but the filter is only 77 mm. Something had to be sacrificed even with a large circle.

  • Novel

    Where there is a legendary man with twilight cats in the basement and on the railway, his time has come.

      There, only ten half-tons are enough for work.

  • Andrei

    All these lenses are invented by the imperialists in order to take the last 900 dollars from the working man. What is the T-43 bad for them? Almost the same focal length, well, a little darker, so what? But you get a free camera and instructions with a box.

    Irix, I see, I read the topic with narrow-format optics on GFX. I wonder if it is possible to drive their super-widths on this medium-format crop? ...

    • Rodion

      Even Samyangov's 14 / 2.8 covers a little more than ff. And if you cut off his hood, I think that it will be able to cover the fuja frame. Of course, we are not talking about quality, but still ...
