Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50mm f/2 R WR
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I am a fuji shooter, although I love my G85 for other reasons. I have several fuji primes but the 56 1.2 most buy is most likely my choice if the prices were the same however my personal opinion is that the 50mm f2 gives a more ageless bokeh. Today many of the overblown backgrounds are becoming a thing of the past. The 50 mm f2 has a serious weight advantage and WR. I have a 16mm 1.4 and it is great but heavy. The 56.2 would be better in a studio environment but if your packing a few lens all day.. On my telephoto lens I bought the G85 not as good of photos but the 200mm to 600 mm micro 4/3 lens on the G85 is about 1/3 the weight and size. So I use both cameras. I have a Fuji X100s it is still my favorite over the XT2. The fuji is almost unmatched straight out of the camera in my opinion. I like the fuji with primes. The 50mm F2 is a great lens and incredible black and white. I hope I haven't given too much info but this new 50mm F2 hardly has any time on it, it is my second one. My first one was stolen. I hope this is as good as my last one. My review of the lens is based on my last one but same lens. I just had to replace it. I have the 35mm F.2 and I am not so impressed. If your a Fuji shooter and wanted 2 lens even though I don't on them both I would say the 50mm F2 and the 16-55 and maybe the new lens there coming out with that is like the 8-16 but I think the price is too high. The 16mm 1.4 may have the widest range of use, it takes excellent photos.
