Showing 1-6 of 6
Great pictures; Great quality; Autofocus "Hunting" problem only exception

Summary: This macro lens takes very sharp pictures and on a tripod and fully stopped down I get fantastic deep-field of view that is tack sharp throughout the field of view. The problem with this lens is the autofocus "hunting" it does when trying to find its focus point--sometimes the lens just gives up and one is left with a blinking red square of failure :( This is true on both the EX-1 another Fuji I have (can't remember the model).
Summary: Clear sharp lens with nice broken. On an APS-C camera, it is the equivalent of a 90mm lens. Works well for portraits. Auto focus is a bit slow and it doesn't focus quite as fast as I would like but I suspect that that is as much the camera as the lens.
Summary: I had read that it was slow to focus and that's true.But I does focus in manual mode easily. It seems people have forgotten that before auto-focus all lenses had to be focused by hand. As far as everything else it is a great lens, sharp as a tack. Im happy that I bought it..
Incredibly sharp and wonderful, focus speed is just annoying

Summary: This lens is much like the other two Fuji primes, sharp, contrasty and wonderful. The focus speed, however, is abysmally slow. I have found myself focusing it manually until it is really close and then, and only then, initiating the autofocus. Otherwise you wait an interminable length of time for it to go from infinitely close to infinitely far away.
Summary: actually I need more time to fully evaluate the subtle quality of image. But the first impression is very good. Both optics and workmanship. It will take me at least one to two months to appreciate the optical characteristics.
Summary: While I am still learning to use this lens, the couple of portrait images I have taken are excellent. The lens takes great pictures but its build quality is not on par with the Canon top of the line lenses. All in in I'm pleased with the purchase.
