    I’m looking to get new lens for my food photography business. I am starter and have been using Fuji X-E3 with 18-55mm/f2.8-4 for all of my photos so far and feel it’s time to add fixed lens as my prime lens. I go shoot at restaurants for their menu photos. That’s my main business right now. I originally looked at 60mm or 80mm but now I saw your post here I feel like 16mm or 23mm is what I need. What would you recommend for sharp food photo and at the same time great for flatlay? Thanks I’m advance!!

    Awesome blog. For the food top down shots what ISO/SS/AP settings are you using with those lenses?

    Hello! Very nice article!
    I have a Fuji XT4, 35mm, kit lens, and one zoom wide that I don’t remember the exact specifications now. I want to start a Food Photo business ( My background is visual arts ), product, headshots, and soon interior ( real estate ) photography.
    Unfortunately, I bought many gear yesterday before reading about your experience, I invested in flash, continuous light, diffusers, without taking a new prime lens afffff… What do you think about Laowa 65mm for Fuji? It has a great price and many excellent reviews at BH! 🙂
