  1. Heres a few more random shots with the Velvet 56mm F/1.6 F/2 F/4 All of these are SOOC from a boring day at work. Not a big surprise but the Lensbaby 56mm is definitely a specialty lens, and I think there will probably be very very few people who will put it to good use. $500 for such an atypical piece of glass is a lot for something that will probably be collecting dust most of the time unless you LOVE soft focus and macro work, which is definitely not many of us. The 56mm f/1.2 is great, but I like the OOF areas better with the 35 than either of the other lenses honestly. Anyone else want to share some photos or opinions feel free.
  2. Close Focus Shots: XF 56mm 1.2 @ 1.2 Velvet 56mm 1.6 @ 1.6 XF 35mm 1.4 @ 1.4
  3. Wide Shots: XF 56mm 1.2 @ 1.2 XF 56mm 1.2 @ 4 Velvet 56mm 1.6 @ 1.6 Velvet 56mm 1.6 @ 4 XF 35mm 1.4 @ 1.4 XF 35mm 1.4 @ 4
  4. Headshots: XF 56mm 1.2 @ 1.2 Velvet 56mm 1.6 @ 1.6 XF 56mm 1.2 @ 1.2 XF 56mm 1.2 @ 1.6 Velvet 56mm 1.6 @ 1.6
  5. Hey friends, this comparison is very rushed and won't be of much use to many of you, but since both of these lenses are hard to find in stores for most people, here is a little comparison to help you avoid wasting $500 to $1000 on either of these. This is the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 compared to the Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6 with an honorable mention of the Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 Side by Side: They honestly are about the same size and weight, which is surprising since the fuji is faster and has autofocus.
  6. People often talk about the 27mm, and your question leaves a lot of room for interpretation. Which lenses are you considering "unnoticed"? Are you asking which has the best image quality? Do you want a good street photography lens? Will you be shooting at night or indoors? Do you really need or opinions since you said you are already buying one?
  7. All I want is the x100t guts in a slightly more ergonomic x pro body 16mp, WiFi, intervalometer, HVF, weather sealing and dual card slots would be fabulous IMO
  8. I'd love a 8-500mm f/2 zoom, but maybe that's just me...
  9. Thanks for the answers guys, I meant I am going to get a 56 standard and either the 90mm f/2 or the 85mm f/1.4, and cost and focus don't matter to me, just image quality
  10. Hey there friends, I am a long time Nikon shooter and a very new Fuji X convert. I am currently working with a x pro 1 and a 35mm and an x100t with a TCL, but as a portrait photographer I need something with some more reach. The 56mm is definitely on my radar buy I'm also looking to purchase a 90mm f/2 or a Rokinon/Samyang 85mm f/1.4. I have used the 85 on my Nikon D3s and I love it, but if anyone has any experience with both lenses and wants to offer some advice or shiw a comparison it would help me out greatly. Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to getting to know all of you in the FXF community.
