Yep, it is a very nice lens, just wish it was faster.

That would be pretty sweet to see a long fast tele or two for Fuji. Not that I'm complaining, the Fuji 18-55 and 55-200 are great and they're already faster than the usual consumer zooms. I just love fast glass :D

To be honest I don't see one coming any time real soon, but maybe after the last couple roadmap lenses they'll start looking at some even faster zooms, or even a tele prime. I'd love to see a 100-150mm f/2 prime along the lines of the DC-Nikkor lenses. That would absolutely rock, especially for portraits.

Jack, I've just seen your two photos - this and the one over on the color thread. Both are lovely...and this one intrigues me with the film like quality. Next time if you can, please post a larger version.

In the meantime - welcome to FujiXspot - :biggrin_old: - and pllease stop by the Welcomes and Introductions forum when you have a chance.

Don't really like those reds and blues;
It's black and white that pays the dues.
And I wouldn't say they're not dramatic;
With a tonal scale that's not just automatic.

Say, Gary, not every photo inspires the literary muses!

Hey, 1.4! This camera isn't up to shoot sports, is it... :rolleyes:

Update, seen right now. The bit of text behind. At first sight, you read "cade". "Cade" in Italian means "he falls". :D LOL

It is an Aikido technique (which is of course Japanese) The text on the background completely reads "Aikido Academy", I thought it would be an ironic play on words if the Japanese technique is described in Italian so I have added some shadows.

You've got a very sharp eye onreb.
