24 Apr Well Laid Plan (Take 2378)

After traveling across state to see the opening of the Moose Peterson exhibit at the Gallery at KelbyOne I planned a stop off at Epcot to take in the annual Flower and Garden Festival on the way home. I always take my XF 16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR lens and I needed to take another lens to get some images of Flowers and some of the butterflies. I didn’t want to take too may lenses as carrying multiple lenses around is hard on several of one’s body parts. So I came up with the idea of taking my XF 50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR lens as it would give me more reach to get closer to the floral and insect subjects that were on display. I thought it would be a good lens to get closer to my subjects.

In The Butterfly House = Fujifilm X-T2 XF 50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR ISO 250 F/5.6 1/125sec 140mm

Trouble is that the XV 50-140mm does not have that close a focusing range so you have to stay back from you subject to grab focus. I also ended up shooting at 1/125 of a second at 140mm when I should have been at 1/250 at least with the 140mm focal length of the lens. I did get a pretty sharp image but could have done better…
