Think I'm so done with Fujifilm...............for now...............
I'm so use to using my Canon 85L f/1.2 mk2 on my Canon full frame and even Canon 80D.
I just wanted to see what so great about the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens. It's definitely ridiculously sharp. My famous last words is " this is my last lens for a while"
The 50mm f/2 was on my radar but as I wanted shallower dof there's really no alternative but the 56mm.
Very poor soft compression of images on the website but the battery tests was to check for any issues in focus. Wideopen at f/1.2 @ iso 200 this lens certainly is worth every penny.
Will this replace my 85Lmk2?? NO as I can still produce more creamy backgrounds when I have to erase nasty backgrounds in some situations using my FF. However my shooting style I do not really need a FOV of 35mm or 50mm. 85L meets my needs both in close proximity portrait work without yelling and my 16mm f/1.4 and 10-24mm meets my UWA and WA needs for my style of shooting.
I guess I'll be testing this lens some more in the next while. Almost pulled the trigger on a 50 f/2 or 90mm f/2. For my style the 85mm usually fits my workflow really well. If I had to make an ultimate choice between the 50mm and 90mm I'd probably would have to choose the 50mm for a 75mm FOV with good bokeh while retaining comfortably levels of conversation instead of yelling
I'm truly done with buying lenses for a while. I've put great efforts in selling lenses I do not use with my Canon gear. I think I'm good for portrait prime using an 85mm FOV for the compression I want.
