    “When I get my XF56mm F1.2 (next on my wish list)…”

    Do take a look at the 50mm f/2 lens. It is smaller, lighter, focuses faster and costs less. It is sharp from f/2 and in practice will still give a selective focus advantage over the zoom.

    I enjoyed looking at your photos. If picking Fujifilm was random, you made a good choice.

      Albert Smith is right and I really agree with him. I have both 56 and 50 and I always use my 50 while 56 remains at home. Light, fast focusing, wr, sharp and f2 is ok.

    Nice pictures, I also work in TV news, but I am a photojournalist and work outside. I really enjoyed the window into your newsroom, on the other side of the world. We might be miles apart but the ” characters” in the newsroom look identical.

    All the best from California, Stefan

      Hi Stefan!!!
      Thanks for your comment. Great to hear from a colleague from the sunny California. Gosh, I have to visit that place. It’s on my wishlist, like the 56mm 😉
      Take care.
      Best regards from Spain.
