Shot an engagement shoot - weight is about the same as my G9 with battery grip. Size is similar which when I'm doing paid work shoots is my sweet spot!
For larger lenses I love this working with the Fuji 80mm, 90mm and 50-140mm.
No real complaints so far. I think the camera is badly represented...
Great portraiture work here and also on mu-43 forum. I find that forum display limitations can sometimes mean that images are downsampled and appear 'softer'. This isn't necessarily a reflection of the camera but a need to ensure that pages load fast and can display reasonably on mobile device.
Thanks guys. It's a lovely lens and surprisingly sharp from wide open across the focal range.
I've taken it now for field work shooting Rodeos to surfing in Hawaii and the lens hasn't missed a beat on the XT2 with boost grip.
XT2 and 100-400 were potent at a Rodeo event this weekend ....
Note grain has intentionally been added in post for some of these (TriX400 is what I was going for!) :)

I'll start sharing some photos from an impromtu photoshoot of my friends girlfriend this evening as they come off the line!
Most shot with either the 56mm 1.2 APD or 50-140 2.8.
For a start 'freckles in the city!'

Thanks for the kind words. Yes shot with leaf shutter :) it was fairly bright out and I enabled the ND filter, set the shutter speed to 1/4000 and then used the built in flash on the X100f with -2/3 TTL to expose.
To soften the flash a little I got a small glass, put a white napkin in front and...
First of all - beautiful image Amin! (show off :D :P ;))
For my tastes the two Photoshop exported images look best and retain the most perceptive detail.
The Imagick is not far off the PS results to be honest - impressive.
The flickr results are mushy - this is flickrs issue obviously...
Thanks for the response Amin - I think it's a reasonable approach. I was merely interested in the technicalities and whether a direct 1600x upload with a bicubic sharper reduction to 1600x would result in a 'better' jpeg. It would be interesting to see for example the differences between a...
As part of Canada 150 celebrations, if you have a park pass there is free admission to this treasure trove of natural wonder.
Home to an endangered species of snail that is one of the only creatures that can survive in the sulphuric waters that run into the basin, this place is well worth a trip...

A friend asked me to shoot her wedding ceremony. I shot a couple with this lens. I'll share some more as they come out.
I'm genuinely gobsmacked at how well the Fuji handles skin tones.

What is the general concensus on this lens with the XPro2 / XT2 in CDAF mode.
I'm interested in the APD variant and I'm aware that both XPro2 and XT2 are already pretty quick even in contrast detect only mode once the motors in the lens can keep up. I know the 56 1.2 already has average focus...
