Fuji’s 50-140 | Dyanne Wilson

So what can one do with the 50-140 that you can’t with the 55-200?  I recently had the opportunity to try out Fuji’s new 50-140 F2.8 OIS WR sealed lens.  The whole time I’m asking myself if I should replace my 55-200 mm with this lens.  Actually I’m still up in the air about it and this blog post serves to explore why I should buy this lens.  The Fujifilm 50-140 is no doubt a fine piece of glass with its constant 2.8 aperture.  It is at 995g considerably heavier than the 55-200 at 580g.  The weather sealing is an attractive feature as I do quite like to shoot outside with it.  In my mind it really is an exquisite portrait lens though.  I do generally like getting close to my subject at a wide aperture, relying less on flash if possible.  However, for the first two studio portraits of my nieces, I did use a little off camera flash to the left. What really blew me away was the OIS.  I mean I took this photo handheld at 110.6 F8 for 1/15 second !  …..
