Fujinon 90mm f/2 R LM WR Review: Break out the piggy bank |
Bill Palmer

This is possibly the quickest review I have ever written, but I wanted to get the word out about the Fujinon 90mm f/2 R LM WR (the Fuji XF 90 to its friends). This is the lens that I have been waiting for. Save your pennies. Break the piggybank. Max that card. Pawn your granny. Get one. Now. Back in the day, when I used on a regular basis Leica M lenses and bodies (proper, film ones) I had a „full set“ of glass ranging from 15mm (Voigtländer) through 28, 35, 50, 75, 90 and 135mm.  The „holy trinity“ of Leica was of course 35-50-90 and with that combination one could – and I did – shoot pretty well everything. But there were times when it was necessary to go a little bit wider or longer. The Leica range in M-mount (forgetting for a moment the Visoflex) topped out at 135mm for the simple reason that that was the longest focal length that could accurately be focused on the M rangefinder base length.  Contax went to 180mm, of course, with their rangefinder (the „Olympic Sonnar“ was legendary and rightly so) but their cameras were a little wider in the base length and hence more accurate at the top end…….

Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR Review | PhotographyBLOG

The Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR is a fast short telephoto prime lens in Fujifilm’s XF line-up. The weather-proof Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR lens offers an angle-of-view similar to that of a 137mm lens in a 35mm system, ideal for portrait and sports photography, and a bright f/2 maximum aperture for low-light shooting and throwing the background completely out-of-focus. Other highlights include a newly-developed Quad Linear Motor that delivers fast, accurate autofocus, an iris diaphragm with seven rounded blades, an aperture ring on the metal lens barrel, Super EBC coating for improved optical performance, minimum working distance of 60cm, and an optical formula that comprises 11 elements in 8 groups, including 3 extra low dispersion elements. The Fujifilm XF 90mm F2 R LM WR lens is available now for £699.99 / $949.99 in the UK and the US, respectively……

Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Review | Dylan Goldby

Fujifilm’s lineup of fast primes is what sets it apart in the world of mirrorless cameras. Starting with the amazing XF 35mm f/1.4, and following up with the XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 56mm f/1.2, Fuji have continued to impress with their small, lightweight, fast, sharp primes. The XF 16mm f/1.4 (24mm equivalent field of view on full frame), long talked about, was released in May this year to the excitement of many Fuji shooters. But does it hold up to the other primes in Fuji’s lineup? Build Quality & Handling. As with the 23mm and 56mm offerings, the 16mm has a solid metal construction with a lot of glass packed into it’s small frame. It feels good in the hand, unlike the increasing number of plasticky lenses we have been seeing from other manufacturers. The „WR“ in the lens name denotes Weather Resistant, and so far it has been fine in dust and light rain. Overall, this lens feels like the almost $1000 you paid for it……

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Review | ePhotoZine

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Verdict

This lens is certainly capable of delivering excellent quality images. When you consider the robust build, weather resistant construction and excellent handling of this lens, the £730 price seems very reasonable indeed. Fuji X-series camera owners after a high quality, fast, wide-angle lens will find this lens should easily satisfy their requirements. There is little fault to be found with this lens, but much to recommend.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Pros

  • Very good sharpness in the centre at maximum aperture
  • Excellent sharpness across the frame when stopped down
  • Relatively lightweight
  • Traditional design
  • Excellent build
  • Weather resistant

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Cons

  • Only fairly good sharpness towards the edges at maximum aperture

Fishy Business (with the Samyang 8mm f/2.8 for Fuji-X) | Vassilios Zacharitsev

Fisheyes are a controversial breed of lenses; some love them, others hate them. Main criticism about their use is that they end up producing a trite looking result. Critics find their output too recognizable to be original. They also regard them as an sensationalist item, hiding true photographic talent. At which point I have to wonder what’s „original“ with the standard 50mm lens. Or what about shooting everything at ultra shallow DoF and „true photographic talent“. But I digress. Fisheyes, are simply ultra-wide lenses where, by design, no distortions are corrected optically. In fact, we are commonly talking about „rectilinear“ fisheyes, which are most common, although spherical fisheyes also exist. Rectilinear fisheyes actually „stretch“ the image circle over the whole image frame…….

Review: The Black Widow, by Spider Holster | Colin Nicholls

I’m always looking for new ways to use and carry my gear, it seems that at every wedding I’ll have a new way of carrying 2 or three cameras from carrying bags to having a double shoulder sling to having them all around my neck at once, and nothing has really gripped me as the best method, thats when I heard about Spider Holster and thought; that just might do. The first time I saw this type of thing was while chatting to Kevin Mullins at a convention, he had one on his X100T and it seems to work great, nice a quick to use while being secure and no strap flying about, I set to getting one and this blog is a quick review with a few pictures and how I use the Black Widow and my general thoughts. The holster fits right onto your belt and is curved so it fits to the shape of your body, the ball-joint pin is attached by a washed and a screw to the bottom of your camera in the tripod mount and is tightened by the wrench provided, over all it’s super easy to set up and takes about 30 seconds to slip the holster onto your belt……

FUJIFILM MCEX-11 / MCEX-16 EXTENSION TUBES REVIEW | Björn Moerman

Let’s start with a brief explanation what an extension tube is… In basic terms, it is a hollow cylinder that fits between your camera and lens, moving the lens further away from the sensor and therefore allowing it to focus more closely, with a larger magnification factor. Some come with electrical contacts, others don’t. The ones that do normally keep all of the communication between the camera body and the lens going; IOS, Autofocus, etc… The longer the tube, the closer the focus distance becomes, but also the more the distant/infinity focus is affected. Because there are no glass elements in extension tubes (hollow tubes), most photographers tend believe that there is no difference in the image quality compared to shooting without them. However because lenses are always optimised for a specific distance between the lens and sensor-plane, there can be a reduction of sharpness towards the edges of the frame. Given the depth of field is so limited to start with, this is often not a big issue…..

Just how good is the new Fuji 90mm f 2???? | Bill Fortney

It is very, very important to me that you know that when I express an opinion about gear or anything, for that matter, that is comes from the heart, and is not influenced by my business relationship with any company or individual! Please believe that!!! If you don’t, nothing I share would be worth a dime! Now let’s settle this for once and for all, I have winced as I’ve seen an occasional harsh comment about Zack Arias being in the tank for Fuji, because I imagine the same is being said of me! I know Zack well and he is a man of real integrity and I believe he would never promote a product, even from a company he does some work for, unless he really believed it! I believe that Zack shares exactly what he thinks! When Jack and I were named X-Photographers, which we both really appreciatied, we asked the official that informed us of the nomination and selection to that group, if accepting the honor would, in any way, affect our being able to express our real feelings about Fuji’s products and we were assured that was exactly what they wanted us to do, positive or negative!!! I say this because I am beginning to do some events for Fuji and being paid to do so. If I thought my doing work for them compromised my ability to be honest with you, I would have not accepted the X-Photogrpaher offer and would refuse to work for hire for Fuji. I’m very proud that I can have the kind of relationship I enjoy with them. Why such a long diatribe???? Because the praise I’m about to heap on the new 90mm f 2 would otherwise test your confidence in my being, unbiased!!! ……..

Fujinon XF 90mm F2 – First Take and Taken Aback | Olaf Sztaba

Each time we have an encounter with a new Fujinon XF lens, our expectations are high but we hold ourselves back, just in case – don’t want to get too excited. When we got our first Fujinon – the XF 35mm F1.4 – we were really impressed. Then, we added the XF 14mm F2.8 – they really know how to make lenses, we thought! Then the XF 56mm F1.2 arrived and… well, we immediately added it to our bag. So when the letter carrier knocked on the door with a package from Fuji Canada we thought: It’s going to be a really good lens but given our lofty demands there is no way that this new arrival is in the same class as the XF 56mm F1.2. After all, camera companies eventually misfire and produce a substandard glass – we all know that. Boy, was I WRONG! After shooting a few pics around the house I looked at the screen and I couldn’t believe it. Then I uploaded a few JPEGs on my computer and practised all the profanities I knew. How am I going to write a review of such a brilliant lens? Given that in our previous write-ups we showed so much affection for the Fujinon glass, this time the Internet is going to go berserk – I will be called Fuji funboy once again! Then, I went outside and took more shots. This can’t be right! After a few hours of shooting the most difficult things I could think of, I gave up. I couldn’t take it any more. I passed the lens to Kasia and asked her to find a problem with it. It’s not that she hadn’t tried. Quite the opposite! Eventually she came up with: “Shouldn’t the hood be all metal?” We burst out laughing and at this point we knew we were adding this lens to our bag. Come on, bashers, bring it on! The Fuji funboys await you! ……..

Fujifilm XF90mm F2 R LM WR | Preview | Leigh Miller

Fuji’s newest lens has arrived in time for a bunch of beauty & portrait sessions on my calendar. This evaluation copy was waiting for me at the concierge’s desk and while I won’t get a chance to use it until Thursday, I couldn’t resist some shots around the house. As far as I’m concerned, the only reason to have a fast lens is to use it wide open as much as possible. Back in the DSLR days of my business the lenses had to be stopped down one click to get anything reasonably sharp. That meant my 85mm 1.8 lens was actually an 85mm F2…or more realistically, F2.2 or 2.8 depending on the subject distance. The Fujinon XF90mm F2 is actually an F2 lens. No stopping down required. Lot’s of crisp, clean details at the point of focus and blurry goodness as the background fades away. The Canon EF85mm 1.8 was probably my most used lens for headshot portraits, my main business bread & butter. On the Fujifilm X-T1 this 90mm is actually a 137mm in 35mm terms. The equivalent Canon lens is the EF 135mm F2 USM. I rocked that for about a year and loved it so long as there was sufficient room to frame my shots. Good as it was, I think this Fujinon is better…..
