Judging by the Sample Image #4 below, ISO 3200 looks pretty clean and impressively detailed. And ISO 64 images (which there are a bunch of, look quite detailed and rich in colors. Please note that these sample images are straight out of camera JPEGs, with no post-processing applied.

Fuji X-T1 Preview and Image Samples

I have been shooting with the Fuji X-T1 for the past several weeks and I must say, I am just blown away by what this little camera can do. While I will be working my way to a review fairly soon, I wanted to provide a quick summary of my thoughts so far on the X-T1, along with some sample images using the 35mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2 lenses. Ever since I received the X-T1, I just cannot stop myself from taking it every time when I go outside. Pretty much everything about the camera feels right to me – from the amazing controls and dials on the top, to the fast and responsive autofocus and the huge electronic viewfinder (EVF), making the camera a pure joy to use.

Nikon D4s Image Samples

Nikon has not yet updated its main site with the D4s image samples, but thanks to our readers, we have received links to other Nikon global sites that host high resolution image samples from the new Nikon D4s (see related posts). As we receive more sample images, we will be updating this article with those samples for your viewing pleasure.

Please keep in mind that the images are taken in RAW and simply converted to JPEG via Capture NX 2. No other editing has been done, including sharpening.

Nikon 35mm f/1.8G Sample Images

I have been playing with the new Nikon NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED FX lens for a week now and have taken it out a few times when the weather got a little better (it has been snowy and extremely windy during the past week here in Colorado). So far the lens seems like another winner. It is small, lightweight and is capable of rendering images with beautiful colors and high contrast. While I have not performed any lab tests, judging from the images I have captured so far, it seems to be very sharp optically, from the center to the corners at infinity:

Official Fujinon XF 10-24mm F/4 Image Samples

The rate at which Fujifilm X-mount compact camera system is growing is simply remarkable. I admit, I am very drawn to the system and really like what Fujifilm is doing (thus pardon any subjectivity that might creep in at times). To think that it was launched such a little while ago and yet already has such a versatile selection of cameras and lenses, it is beyond what we’re used to seeing in modern digital camera market. The two most recent Fujinon lenses – the XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS and XF 56mm f/1.2 R – filled in what was arguably the biggest gaps in the system. The first one addressed the wide-angle issue in what we think is a very well-sorted package, while the second finally offers both the aperture and focal length suitable for close-up shallow depth-of-field portraiture. We are excited about both these new lenses along with the XF 23mm f/1.4 R and those soon to come.

Alas, they have not yet reached our hands, so the reviews will have to wait a little longer. On the positive side, Fujifilm has decided to treat us with some eye-candy from the widest lens currently available for the X-system. If you’ve been holding back your pre-order fearing it might not be as good a performer as one might hope, these official full resolution image samples should help you with your choice. Images are taken at various focal lengths and aperture values. If they are to be trusted, the XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS really does perform admirably. Clicking on the images will take you to the full-resolution (several megabytes) file on Fujifilm’s website. The image files also contain EXIF information.

Nikon 58mm f/1.4G High Resolution Image Samples

Now that the Nikon 58mm f/1.4G lens is out (check out our detailed preview), more and more information is showing up on this very interesting lens, including high resolution image samples. Unfortunately, Nikon did not provide any high-resolution images on its product page, so I thought it would be a good idea to post other images that I was able to find through Nikon Asia’s website. Although I thought that the sample images were not a very good representation of the lens performance (f/1.4 samples do not appear to be perfectly focused), the images definitely do have that 3D look to them. Bokeh looks exceptionally good, even stopped down to f/2! Check out the below high-resolution image samples:

Nikon D5300 Image Samples

With the release of the D5300, Nikon has also posted 5 sample images from the camera by Kwaku Alston. The below images are all copyright of Nikon and all EXIF data is retained in photographs. As before, the sensor performance of the D5300 looks pretty impressive.

Please keep in mind that the images are taken in RAW and simply converted to JPEG via Capture NX 2. No other editing has been done, including sharpening.

Nikon D7100 Image Samples

These are the same Nikon D7100 image samples as the ones presented at Nikon.com. I am providing these images here in case Nikon websites go down (as they usually do), being too busy serving millions of requests. All EXIF data is attached to the original images.

Please keep in mind that the below images are taken in RAW and simply converted to JPEG via Capture NX 2. No other editing has been done, including sharpening. The images look quite detailed at 100% zoom, looks like lack of an anti-aliasing filter will produce very sharp images. I wonder how Nikon is going to deal with potential moire problems. It will be interesting to see how the D7100 will compare to the D7000 in terms of image quality. This will be revealed in detail in my future Nikon D7100 review.

Nikon D5200 Image Samples

While we are still waiting for the final pricing and availability information on the upcoming Nikon D5200, I decided to post some sample photos from the camera. Nikon imaging only made a 5 images available by Douglas Menuez, but other images have also been posted by Nikon France on Flickr. The below images are all copyright of Nikon and all EXIF data is retained in photographs.

The sensor performance of the D5200 looks pretty impressive. It is hard to say whether the camera will yield better images than the D3200, since the number of megapixels is about the same. I will have to test high ISO performance between the two when I receive a sample unit.

Please keep in mind that the images are taken in RAW and simply converted to JPEG via Capture NX 2. No other editing has been done, including sharpening.
