Time for a change, a 56mm one

Today I finally got to be the happy owner of a Fujifilm X-T1 and most importantly, of a FX56mm F1.2 R lens – 84mm in 35mm format – (plus the kit lens that came with the camera, 18-55mm). I love my x100S, but there are many times I find the lens doesn’t really suit my style, plus is becoming frustrating that I am not able to change lenses, hence my decision to get the X-T1. This was a birthday present and to prove I took my time to do a proper research and didn’t rush into it, it’s only almost 2 months after my birthday that I got it.

The 56mm is a love at first sight. I don’t think there is anything not to love about this lens. I briefly tried it this afternoon on a bouquet of white lilies I have at home, but I had done it before I changed the quality settings from just Fine to Fine + Raw, so the below four pictures are Jpegs straight from the camera.

A couple of days ago I did the same thing with another lens I love, Nikkor 40mm. The last three pictures are the processed versions of the Raw files. Although I love this lens and will still remain a favorite one, especially for macro (an affordable one for that matter), It feels like a breath of fresh air that I don’t have to get that close to subjects to fill the frame.

Back to the 56mm, I just can’t wait to use it on people and can’t wait to try it tomorrow for the Fujifilm Global Photowalk in Dallas 🙂
