FUJIFILM XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR Reviews
This Lens is So Good
This is my favorite portrait lens. I don't have the 56mm f/1.2 (I want to get that one too/is the next lens on my wishlist) but this one is freaking awesome
Fabulous lens, with a caveat.
I bought this FABULOUS lens to take pictures of my grandchildren without being intrusive. The lens lives up to all my expectations,but, NOT great for usual indoor lighting. GREAT outdoors. Tack sharp, quiet, almost instant autofocus, and yes, it "clunks," until the camera is turned on. For indoor photography, the 16 mm, f 1.4 lens, is SUPERB.
Comparable to Canon EF 135mm f2, but different
Ordered in Adelaide, Australia, and travelled via Melbourne during lock down. Arrived within a week in first class condition - as always, exemplary service from B&H. The reviews for this lens are all true. It is stunningly sharp, and is the first telephoto lens that I feel does not need a dash of fill-in-flash to bring out its best qualities. I was astounded how sharp hand held 1/80th sec f2 ISO400 shots were, and how magical the rendering was. I have the Canon f2 135mm, and this Fuji lens is marginally sharper, but you don't get the same isolation at full aperture on the Fuji as you do on the Canon. In absolute terms, the Canon is better because of this, but in terms of weight and ease of use the Fuji wins hands down (IMHO). Build quality is exceptional, focus is rapid and 75% accurate when using a small centre spot focal point and readjusting the frame post focus, so 75% isn't bad and is similar to the Canon 135mm, but way better than the Canon 50 f1.2 or 85mm f1.2, which are far more hit and miss (at full aperture). Optically the Canon EF 85mm is as good as the Fuji 90mm, but the Canon EF 50mm f1.2 can't touch the Fuji for sharpness. This lens is excellent for portraits, and also for flower and other natural history applications. It also makes an interesting landscape lens when used to isolate details or compress interesting land- or seascapes. The optical quality and lightweight utility of this lens is simply amazing for the price. I prefer not to have OIS as this compromises optical quality, so no complaints from me on that one. The Fuji 90mm with the 10-24mm and two X-Tn bodies make a brilliant lightish weight travel kit to cover, landscape, portraits and nature. I went through a troublesome decision process over whether to go for the Fuji 50-140mm f2.8 or the 90mm f2.0. Optical quality, closer focus, and lighter weight won the day for the 90mm. Also I have the superb Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS MkII, which is a better lens (full frame) so pointless duplicating this. I also have the f4.0 variant of this zoom, and optically the 90mm wins by a significant margin. Also, the Fuji F2.8 is the equivalent of F4.0 anyway when used on an APS-C sized sensor. In the end it was a no brainer. This lens appears to me to be sharp at every aperture and across the frame and at near and far focus..........I look forward to using it for some serious projects in the near future. PS: I may be saying some nice things about Canon lenses, but the weight/size of my Canon kit means it gets far less use these days. The light weight and optical quality of Fuji X series kit means this is my go to system 95% of the time. Its far more convenient and fun to use. Honestly, 36 inch prints, even from the X-T1 can be show stoppers. I have some on my wall and they are as good as similar sized prints from my Canon and from Ebony 5x4 inch large format Velvia prints - all sit my wall. The Fuji prints probably give me most pleasure. I guess that's all that really matters at the end of the day.
Fuji’s Best Portrait Lens
This is easily Fuji’s best x-mount portrait lens, and yes even better than the 56mm 1.2 It’s one of the larger primes, although I haven’t tried the new 50mm f/1 lens yet. You can get a very shallow depth of field for head and shoulders portraits, and it focuses super fast too. The only thing I don’t like is how far back from the model I have to be to capture a full length image. You need about 8-10 feet for waist up. The bokeh is great, very creamy, a smooth rendering, and nothing distracting. Even indoors I’ll try to use this lens even if that means I have to back up into the hallway of the studio to get the shot. I sold my other copy of this lens thinking I could shoot with the 56mm for everything. But i kept thinking “I wish I had the 90 right now” Get it if you shoot portraits!
I Love This Lens!
I have 6 other Fuji lenses and I like all of them. However, I felt that all of my portrait shots should have been a little better so I thought I'd give the 90mm a try - and I'm so glad that I did. The images I get with this lens are crisp and I love its bokeh. I've shot everything at f2.0 and love the results. I've only had this lens a few weeks, but right now its my favorite and I'm taking it with me where ever I go.
My new favorite lens
This is my new favorite lens. I've been using it for portraits of my pets, and it is also fast enough to capture some nice action shots. The unique 90mm focal length really makes me think about my compositions. As other reviews have mentioned, the image quality is out of this world. In combo with my X-T4, I am beyond pleased.
Sharpest Fujifilm Lens I have ever owned
I have had this lens only a couple of weeks, but am so pleased with it. Tack sharp images, great bokeh and color rendition. Very happy I made the investment!
For stationary subjects and steady hands.
When this lens works, it works amazingly well. I must admit though, I get a lot of soft images with this. I try so hard to be steady but can't seem to nail focus with this. I just did a photo shoot with a toddler under a cloudy fall sky and my images were not sharp. Under sunny skies, shooting stationary landscape items like flowers, this lens is phenomenal. I especially love it for macro-type shots. I used it in Hawaii and got some beautiful flora images with creamy bokeh in the background. However, photographing portraits, it's very hit or miss, especially if people are walking or slightly moving. Heck even sometimes when they are still, I'll still get a portion that aren't crisp. Even with my speed up and even when I have a strong stance trying to have a steady hand. Wish I had more success considering the price of this glass!
