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…..
