That damn Fujifilm XF50-140mm lens… | Eivind Rohne

Damnit Fujifilm!! Why, oh why did you have to make this lens. I’m amazed. I’m in shock. I’m in love. I’m no longer a “primes are always the best choice” kind of guy… When first unboxing this lens, I went from “shit this lens is heavy”, to “shit this lens is sharp” in just three exposures. I’m not kidding! Three exposures! The XF50-140 lens is actually so sharp I threw away my Philishave razor, and have been shaving with this lens since Fujifilm Nordic lent it to me. Yes, it’s that sharp! I love longer lenses, and there are four main reasons why I reach for a longer lens when I’m shooting:


  1. It can clean up a messy background by throwing it out of focus.
  2. With an out of focus background, the subject is more seperated and stands out more from the background.
  3. It can make a boring background more interesting, by turning it into a cascade of blurry highlights and shadows.
  4. It fits my style………
