...a week ago I posted an image of Glen Ogle, this version is with my new Fuji X-Pro1, with a different lens and the light had changed a little, I couldn't get exactly the same shot, the first was with a 17mm and this with a 27mm, but I was well pleased with my lighter smaller camera, let's see what you think, the truth please don't just be kind.

Camera:Fujifilm X-Pro1
Lens:Fujinon Super EBC 18mm f/2
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Great inverted triangle. Called "odds" I think.

To my untrained eye Dougie, I can see more detail in the stones on the bridge and the hillside in front of the bridge. As far as the tree and foreground are concerned, the detail looks about the same. I think that Fuji has done really well.

had a few looks at both images and the Canon one is special but the image quality here is excellent too. Gill

The two compositions are slightly different although similar so an exact comparison is difficult, Dougie.
The Canon with the wider angle lens shows up more of the scene as it were with more sky and more height in the mountainside.
The Fuji with the slightly more telephoto lens takes in less and pulls the viaduct towards you, reducing apparent distance.
But what is so impressive is the quality of the image with the Fuji, the detail in both near and distance quite excellent.
I think you must be well pleased with this result from the Fuji, certainly from the quality of capture, but I guess how much of the scene you wish to 'get in' must be up to oneself.
Perhaps there is an even wider lens for the Fuji?
I shall come back later to see what others feel.

The Canon was shot at f/4 the Fuji at f/8 so more depth from the aperture. The wider lens a 21mm equivalent is out in the Autumn I'll be having it Fuji make great lenses they made the lenses for the Hasselblad X-Pan, need I say more.

Thanks for your comment Ronnie and your time.

It occurred to me that this new system might not support filters, so I am wondering how the Fuji will cope with rather bland white skies which I always find with my cheaper Canon G9 are washed out and even more featureless.
I don't know to what extent you use filters but I would miss having my ND Grad quite often if I relied on my Canon for landscapes.
Or have I got things all wrong again?

I use my Lee's on The Fuji it has a live view facility in the viewfinder, so you see through the lens and the filter just like your Nikon. You can bracket on the G9 and combine in PS, which gives you sky and land exposed properly.

PM me if you want a rundown. I'm on the way out just now.

Might have been easier to put the two together here Dougie. Fuji looks to have given you more details and the green look more vibrant.

Had to go and have a look at the other shot Dougie. Think the Fuji has done quite well here. Good detail and great greens. Altogether a very pleasing shot. Moira

Green more vibrant with the fuji but just over the top in my opinion but without seeing them side by side I would probably not have noticed the difference.
Presumably you bought the fuji so that you would not have to lug your canon gear yet you are carrying both systems
Both excellent shot although as you say slightly different compositions.

Fuji greens with it !! Dougie. Very useful camera ( I am debating getting a compact for candid images ) good perspective and information.

I haven't had internet for a long time, I'm travelling. So I just found your first upload of this beautiful place. I must say I prefer the earlier image. You had better light that day and it highlighted areas beautifully. Like the composition better too in the earliest. But still todays is a great shot.........Sandy

The quality of the Fuji shines through and it seems particularly good at the greens where the tonality seems to be better than the Canon. However, the canon seems to have it beat in terms of contrast and detail in the shadow areas, the latter being a little bit flatter in the Fuji image. Looks like a very good buy though.

The 'longer' lens accounts for the apparently greater distant detail in the Fuji version; only a crop from the Canon image would settle the matter, though it's largely academic in truth. The slight difference in lighting can be ignored, while the additional saturation in this version strikes me as scarcely significant.
While I'm a distinct fan of bigger cameras I feel that the smaller sensors of CSCs have made tremendous strides in quality; I'm likely to leave my Nikon behind next holiday. But this Fuji is simply outstanding.

Another week of excellence, Dougie. I even enjoyed the humorous animals Grin

Bill

Impressive - detail and textures plus very natural greens.

I do like how the different green tones comes out almost like a puzzle

Looking at both images the Fuji has done very well here Dougie. The fuji's colour looks a little more vibrant and the detail very slightly softer but they compare very closely for quality. I noticed that the Fuji image lacks the sky of the earlier shot which I assume was to avoid that washed out white look.

Lack of sky was the longer lens my widest available, if I stood back more boulders and more tree. I wanted the viaduct in the shot too. Sad

I was searching the image why it should be Fuji - couldn't find what you mean.... then I read the words. Congratulations to your new toy. Googled it - wow!
Haven't seen my camera in ages.... Sad
