29 Jun For portraits and more – Fujifilm 90mm f/2 Review
Source: Mirror Lessons
The Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 was the third portrait lens released by Fujifilm in addition to the 56mm twins (non-APD and APD versions). It was announced last year in May and we had the chance to see a pre-production model during our trip to Toronto thanks to the kind people at Fujifilm Canada. Today we’ve finally had the chance to publish our full review!
Thinking in 35mm format terms, the lens has almost the same field of view as a 135mm lens which is a focal length often used for portraits. A focal length like this can be an addition or an alternative to the classic 85mm or 100/105mm lens, and can be very useful for genres other than portraits as well!
Is the XF 90mm f/2 an optimal solution for portraits and other genres that require a medium telephoto lens? Let’s find out!
