Excerpt: The XF 60mm 2.4 is not as talked about as the 56mm 1.2, however it has many things going for it. It is significantly less expensive, and smaller, and it does macro. It is very sharp, and at wide open f2.4, certainly fast enough.
Excerpt: I like this lens, and for the price I still feel it is a good deal, but there are a few issues that may cause it to get limited use. Not being a true macro lens, magnification is 1: 2, I find myself wanting more.
Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: This lens is great as all others in XF line. Auto focus has improved with latest FW but still gets lost in poor-light conditions. As portrait lens, this is a true winner. It just can't get much better than this considering price level. I use this lens also as macro lens with Raynox M-250.
Summary: Like a shallow depth of field no matter the f stop? This lens is for you. Granted there are many factors for getting a smooth creamy background but this lens, for me, seems to always give the smooth out-of-focus background.
Excerpt: For the current price, this is a good lens. It's well made and does the job for most of my close up work, although not technically a Marco lens, I believe. I am using it on my X-Pro1 for outside situations.
