02 Nov Fuji’s Telephoto Workhorse: Fujinon XF 50-140mm f/2.8 Review
Source: Fujifilm Insider
I recently made the full switch to the Fujifilm X system for both commissioned and personal work. Previously, I had two separate systems for work and play, which while effective, went against my personal preference of keeping my gear simple and minimal. As someone who prefers zoom lenses for commissioned work, it was necessary for me to have a telephoto zoom like my previous Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L. In the Fuji system, that lens is the XF 50-140mm f/2.8 LM OIS WR. I had a few apprehensions before making the final jump, most notably the initial reports of less-than-stellar autofocus performance as well as busy, unpleasant bokeh at some focal lengths. Having used the lens for a few months now, I can report my findings and share my experiences here.
Overall, the lens is excellent and more than capable for professional applications. I have actually enjoyed using the lens more than the Canon counterpart and have been very happy with the images made with this lens…
