Instead of waiting for the 80mm macro lens or the current 60mm macro (which I have), has anyone tried a Fuji 90mm f2 with extension tube(s)?
I would like to get the 90mm lens for portraits, as well as macro, since I have Fuji's 2 extension tubes (11 and 16mm).

I did see some sample from a user here some time ago.  He used a 1.4 extender with the extension tubes to obtain a 1:1.  Unfortunately the images are no longer showing.


2x X-T2/VPB | X-T1 | 16 ƒ1.4 | 35 ƒ1.4 | 90 ƒ2 | 18-55 ƒ2.8-4 | XF 16-55mm ƒ2.8 | XF 50-140 ƒ2.8 | RRS |

want:  56mm ƒ1.2

I seem to remember a YouTube video on the subject!

I use the 90 F2 with macro tubes all the time, they work perfectly together.

I have the 90mm and 2 of the 11mm and 1 of the 16mm extension tubes. The 90mm works really well with them. The only issue with using extension tubes over macro lenses is that you lose focus range. If you're staying at a set distance this won't matter, but if youre walking through nature taking photos at various distances, it can get a little tiring removing and/or adding the tubes. I also hear the 55-200mm works really well with the extension tubes, but I have not tried it yet.

True. I wasn't thinking about that part. I don't usually walk around going back and forth from Macro to regular shots. I use them for one specific purpose only, pictures of the rings at a wedding. After that I take them back off. For my purpose they work perfect.
