So, I did a new model shoot with my friend and favourite model today, using only the Fujinon 90mm f/2 R LM WR and never changed aperture from f/2 (I mean why should I).
It is sharp, it really is and I really like this lens. It handles well on my Fujifilm X-T1 especially now when I’ve got the VG-XT1 battery grip on while doing portraits. It’s got a nice balance and for being Fujifilm, a pretty fast autofocus with only a little bit of hunting now and then (it still has a long way to go before coming anywhere near my Canon 5D MkIII). The aperture ring seems stiff enough, though I have only shot this lens at f/2, so haven’t played around with it. The focus ring is smooth and nice and there’s nothing to complain about there either.
But I think it’s a pretty easy lens to shoot with, with no problem to nail focus (if it’s not hunting which happens sometimes like I said before) which I’ve read others saying. Sure, you can obviously not use a shutter speed that is too slow for the focal length, but that’s just basic knowledge. The conclusion is that it’s an awesome lens.
I mean, I’ve already written a review, I guess this is just some added thoughts. All right, enough of this.
That’s right, some new shots in my portrait section, with this lens.
