Review: Fujinon 50-140mm f2.8 real world review | Phil M

I had not ever considered buying a big telephoto zoom for my Fujifilm system before. To me, and i’m sure many others it kind of defeats the point of this lightweight system to then stick a huge lens on the front. I guess i’m talking from a personal photography point of view. I see the Fujifilm X system as fundamentally a light weight travel solution, where I use primes and have to carry my whole kit all day. Rather than say a commercial shoot where I might be able to work from a vehicle base or green room. So when I was asked if I would do a last minute commercial stills job for a company I had a history with in video the first thing I did was get the art director on the phone. I wanted to know if it was at all possible to use my Fuji gear for the shoot. After talking to him it was quite clear he didn’t want the look you would get from shooting wide and close, as we might do on a typical air to air shoot. He wanted a telephoto “feel” to the images…….
