7 Points About the XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR

After shooting extensively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8, we would like to share a few points about this lens with you:

  1. Micro-Contrast: Superb and on a par with our beloved XF 56mm F1.2
  2. Optics: Bitingly sharp, to our eye, a notch better than Canon or Nikon equivalents
  3. Image Stabilization (OIS): 5-stops – YES, it works, we love it and use it, all the time
  4. Bokeh (out of focus area): Nice for the size of the sensor but we strongly prefer XF 56mm F1.2 in this regard
  5. Construction: All metal, looks and feels great
  6. Size: BIG and heavy – it is NOT a travel lens
  7. Price: Fair for what you are getting

That’s all for now. Here is our mini-session with Nicole shot exclusively with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 attached to the Fuji XT-1.

This Friday we are leaving for a 10-day trip to Death Valley, San Francisco, Nevada’s old towns and maybe some cruising along Route 66. Of course the XF 50-140 is going with us. We’ll keep you in the loop.

  1. Just going along minding my own business convincing myself that I don’t need this lens (and several other XF lens) and I see these great pictures… now convincing myself that I really do need this lens.
