Portraits with the Fuji X-Pro1: Just before the weekend I received my Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens for use with the X-Pro1. Although I’d used the lens before for my reviews, it was the one lens of the original three that Fuji released that I hadn’t yet got hold of to keep for my self.
It arrived just before this weekends wedding so I didn’t have time get used to it before the wedding. I took it out on Sunday whilst in the kitchen with the kids. These are literally the first two shots I took with the 60mm lens.
I remember when doing the reviews that the lens was pin sharp and beautifully constructed and it all came flooding back to me on Sunday. These images were taken at:
They are simple snap shots (though the first image couldn’t sum up my son and daughter more to be honest). Over the next few weeks I’ll be seeing how the 60mm handles at weddings. Traditionally I shoot with a 24mm and 85mm lens on my full frame DSLRs so the 60mm with its 91mm equivalent is a little longer than I would normally use.
To be honest, I don’t think this is a lens that would be used often during documentary wedding photography but I want to see if there are possibilities. It will definitely become a favourite lens for family Portraits with the Fuji X-Pro1, such as these:
