Kids played a few games on practice fields during a tournament this past weekend so got to swap out my usual 7D + 300/4 combo for my X-T2 and 50-140. Worked pretty well being that close, but still lots of cropping. The athletic ability of some of these kids just amazes me.

yeah, it's Spring soccer season here, and the field my 6 year old plays on is huge. I've been using the X-Pro 2 and 50-140, but wish I had more reach. I've been contemplating on the 2X extender.

your other option is the 100-400 , although it might be a bit more , you'd have to check prices:-)

i sometimes consider the 50-140, but i dont think it would get enough use from me

In the past, I used my 7D and 70-200/2.8 w/ a 1.4x extender for full field recc soccer, very similar conditions to this. Worked really well since you can get so close to the action. I would love to try a 100-400 on my X-T2, but worried about the light for the evening games. I'm already hitting ISO6400 with my 7D + 300/4 during JV games and if she makes Varisty next year the games will be even later. The X-T2 however was a joy to use, especially with the EVF and constantly changing lighting conditions.

The one thing fantastic about the 50-140 is the sharpness. It just lands the target effortlessly. What I do find very noticeable is more dof over my extremely common 5d3/5d4 and 70-200 2.8 combo. I’m just so use to the f2.8 FF shallower dof as it just makes enough soft bokeh border line from grabbing a prime.

I will say no regrets paying around the same price as my Canon 70-200 f2.8IS mk2....Fuji is just different. Impressive Fuji package that is lighter than my Canon combo.

It’s a tough on as the Fuji primes have superior bokeh over the 50-140mm by a huge margin.

I feel odd not having a versatile zoom. I will say performance in the AF speed is very pleasing. Iq goes from stunning to :( depending on the situation with too much dof at f2.8. The pros out weigh the cons so versatility wins in some cases compared to the much heavier canon setup.

For the price of the 55-200 I think that is a great lens. However the AF speed is not comparable to the 50-140 or 16-55 Zoom AF speed.

Sporadic throw the XT2 into manual mode with fast shutter speed setting and ride the AUTO iso. Ride the exposure compensation dial to taste. Is you throw the exposure comp dial into C you can is the other finger dial to change the exposure even faster.

I rarely use this lens but am glad that I do own it as there are sometimes where it is the perfect fit.

Aside from his gigantic hand, that's really not bad as far as distortion being that close.

It's not bad alright, considering but roll on the 8-16 all the same...


I borrowed the 100-400 for a week and only really got out in the near dark & that made things difficult at 400mm. During the day it's a nice lens, even at f/5.6. Going to get one again at the end of July. You could always crop in a bit with the 50-140/2.8 even at 12Mp (280mm) it should be sharp enough. Although that can be a pain at times.

One from the weekend, cropped in to 8.4Mp down from 24Mp, enough detail to my eyes. Although it only shown at 1.12Mp on this forum...

I always shoot full manual with the shutter locked on T and the dials swapped so I can just roll the front dial to my desired shutter speed. Lighting is harsh and constantly changing depending on field positions (shade, etc..). I usually start at ISO400 and only bump it if my speeds start to fall below 1/1000.

If history has proven anything. it's that evolution always wins!!

Lighting is harsh and constantly changing depending on field positions (shade, etc..). I usually start at ISO400 and only bump it if my speeds start to fall below 1/1000.

When the light is changing quickly due to clouds moving sunlight I can shoot with a fixed aperture of f/2.8 and set the shutter to a desired speed. Auto iso seems to smooth things out as the light changes drastically. You can ride the EC dial. This way the auto iso will really maintain exposure faster tan you playing with settings. I bet you can shoot a soccer game with brutal light and get consistent aperture/shutter speed without barely touching the exposure compensation dial while auto ISO does a lot of the work for you. Try it!

Many ways people adjust settings. NO right or wrong as long as it works for you.

Alan you shoot those car events wide open with auto iso during mid day?

Sounds like the results would be over exposed.

These were probably my two favorites from this day :)

I keep thinking about selling that tiny little 38mm, but then I use it again and I'm reminded why I haven't yet :lol: I should admit too that I only used it on this day because I don't have any weather sealed lenses yet, I didn't want to chance it since it was snowing so hard (also why I took the X-T1).

It was probably my favorite lens on my a7S... which is probably why the 7artisans 25mm has resonated so well with me.
