The removal of a knob in the xH1 is an indication of a change in this love for tactile operation.

Very much disagree. EV compensation is still a wheel scroll away (tactile), just a different wheel. My Fuji with shutter speed and iso on body wheels, and aperture on lens ring, is still far far more tactile than any traditional DSLR.

I'm itching badly to add some glass to my kit. Debating on either the 56/1.2, 90/2, or 50-140. I love my 35/1.4 and the 55-200 does well when I can control background and light. Thinking I just have bad GAS, but dance recital season is right around the corner and its giving me a good excuse. I keep teetering on faster glass vs more compression with the 90/2 being a compromise. Would like to expand my Fuji kit into soccer as well, but decided that's not happening until a body upgrade. My 7D and 300/4 handle that job for now. And this is 90% hobby so there's no justification for the to-be-released 200/2 in my future, lol.

I bought the 50-140 because my 6 year old son plays soccer. I haven't had a chance to test it yet as I bought it in-between seasons, but it should start getting a work out in the next few weeks. Prior, I had the 90mm that worked well for soccer games, but between last year's two seasons, he moved up and the soccer field quadrupled in size, which left me wanting a bit longer reach. I had also considered the 100-400, but I wanted something I could still use for portraits as well, so I went with the 50-140, and reluctantly sold my 90.

I just used my 50-140 for my son's first soccer game of the season, and it was not the limiting factor at all, excellent lens. Got lots of decent action shots with great sharpness and high keeper rate.

I had originally used a 7D and 70-200/2.8 for soccer then added a 1.4x teleconveter when the oldest moved up to full field. I had sold all that and debated on the 50-140 or 100-400 for my X-T1 when I started shooting soccer again, however had a hard time dealing with the EVF blackout on the X-T1 (was using the 55-200). After deciding that I'd need to upgrade to a X-T2 and new glass for soccer, I just picked up another used 7D and 300/4 and dedicated it to soccer. If I went the 50-140 route now that'd give me a future upgrade option for soccer when I upgrade my Fuji body (probably X-T3 timeframe). That 56/1.2 looks sooooooo pretty though :)

The 90/2 is a great lens, I just don't love it. The 56/1.2 is also a great lens but I do love that one. I don't think I could pick one over the other though (probably the 56). If it were me I'd be on the 50-140 + TC and then maybe the 56/1.2 if you need the extra light, otherwise it could wait.

I'm looking forward to the 200/2. Not looking forward to paying for it though :cry: Ah maybe I'll just pony up and buy my own 50-140. Have to see what the price is first and see if I can fit it into my work somewhere but that is the same as the 50-140 I guess... Yea this deciding what to buy is hard. I need a new car too -?

I had sold my 90mm, but kept the 56mm. If I had to choose between the two, the 56 would win out. It's a gorgeous hunk of metal and glass.

Believe it or not I used it for soccer when my son was 4. The field was small so the 85mm focal length didn't bother me, and surprisingly it kept up pretty well with the XT-1 and continuous focus. I did resort to just a specific focus point instead of using zones.

I guess I am one of the weird ones. The 56 1.2 and 35 1.4 I have no interest for. I want the 50f2 and already own the 35f2

I love the silent electronic shutter, they're oblivious of photos being taken, so you can have fun and not spoil the moment with the camera.
