Fuji Rokinon/Samyang 135mm F/2 Fuji X-Mount

Feb 2, 2013
I invoiced this lens to a client last week for a separate project, but got to use it for a small NYC elopement this past weekend. From my limited usage, it's a FANTASTIC lens on my X-T1. It's a big hunk of glass, but I guess between small size/optically superb/large aperture... you can only pick two haha! I love this lens despite the drawbacks (size, lack of autofocus, styling very contrary to Fuji's) especially for it's price $550...or in my case free :).

Infact, I think I'm going to skip the Fujinon 90mm. I can live with the gap between 56mm and 135mm on a crop sensor. I needed a lens that allows for subject separation for full length shots at a good distance... at 135mm F/2, this is even better than the Fujinon 90mm with those parameters in mind. It's the perfect replacement for my Nikkor 180mm F/2.8 on my D810, which I loathe to carry around.

As usual, all processed in Lightroom.
