Fujifilm X100F: The Greatest Thing I Have Ever Held In My Hands

For four years now, the Fujifilm 23mm f/2 has been my most used lens and, whilst I can’t stop using the 35mm f/1.4 right now, this little lens was my first love. Despite having this lens, I’ve always dreamed of owning one of the X100 series cameras but for some reason I could never justify it. That was until recently. I finally caved and snagged a used X100F. It’s only been a few weeks but my god the X100F it the greatest thing I have ever held in my hands. It’s absolutely perfect.

Fujifilm 90mm f/2: A Real World Review

Well, let’s get this underway shall we? I recently woke up one morning and, as I’m sure happens to all photographers, had a wild idea to trade in the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2. Now that lens is absolutely beautiful but there are drawbacks (as I explain here) and I was genuinely about to force it out of my life forever. Thankfully, I paused and, very gratefully, the lovely people at Fujifilm sent me the 50mm f/2 lens as well as the 90mm f/2 lens to test drive.

My First Impressions of the Fujifilm 50mm f/2

Following my recent controversial dilemma on the future of my Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to test out both the 50mm f/2 and the 90mm f/2 thanks to the lovely people over at Fujifilm. For those that haven’t read the post about the 56mm f/1.2 (it’s here if you want a read), I was genuinely tempted to trade it in for something that was a little more travel friendly eg the 50mm f/2. I was also tempted by the 90mm f/2 to replace the excellent portrait abilities.

For this post however we’ll concentrate on the 50mm f/2 and my short two weeks with it.

Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 – A Long Term Review

I’ve owned the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 now for just over two years and so I thought that it was finally time to review what is heralded as one of Fujifilm’s best lenses. As with all of my gear reviews, I like to be as honest as possible and give you it straight. I know when I’ve toyed with the idea of a new lens, I need to know as much as possible; not about the specs but what it’s really like in the real world.
