FX1 ZEISS-FUJINON lens compare

Now I made a B4 mount adapter besides Nikon on my camera
www.eidomedia.com/hdve here you can find a side by side compare between the original Zeiss lens and the Fujinon without
It is very clear the Chromatic aberation of the Zeiss and the clean images of the Fuji....

Of course 1/2" lenses that cost as new more than xf1 are better than the original fx1's lens.

It would be very interesting to see how those 1/3" eng-lenses performs.
They are in somewhere 1.5k$ league.

As i am newbe here it will look sort of stupid question. Im still choosing new camera and the three competitors are the Canon, pana and the sony. Last one is increasing gap in the race, but what is iching me is how you took away the Zeiss lens?

As half my family is Still amateur photographers im able to use from nikon to fuji and canon lenses (thatīs why the XL2 is there). So, where did you got this universal adapter? and how you put the Nikon lens there?

Being the Zeiss lens for video and the Fuji and Nikon photo lenses the difference amaze me, specially in getting rid of the blue halo. I will wait some time to see more reviews, but in my heart (and pocket) thereīs just place for one. Thanks for open m eyes in this little issue.

Maybe i got a winner!

Hey if you REALLY want to compare why not through up some zeiss digiprimes and the new fuji primes I think that will give you a much more balanced view, er so to speak.
