Working with the Fujifilm XF90mm F/2 R LM WR

The FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR is a fast-aperture prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 137mm* and a maximum aperture of F2.0, that delivers ultra-sharp images with rich bokeh even at the maximum aperture setting. The optical construction of 11 elements in 8 groups (including three ED glass elements) minimizes vignetting and creates beautiful bokeh thanks to the rounded diaphragm, which makes it perfect for portraiture as well as other applications.

What I love about this lens is the power you feel with it on your camera.  The lens is super fast and quiet and working with it is a pleasure. Whether wide open or stopped down the lens delivers awesome quality and edge to edge sharpness.  The bokeh is impressive with the natural compression of the focal length.  You can see some F2 samples way below with the blurred backgrounds.

Grab shots take on a different perspective when you are using the XF90 since you aren't necessarily on top of your subject so the framing choices are different.

Here I was using it to capture some talks by a couple pulitzer prize winners and other notable photographers.
