Advice please: recently commissioned to take some Band pics at evening gigs, low light, flashing green, red stage lights and so on. I used XF 35mm 1.4 and XF 60mm being the only lenses I have currently, but don't have sufficient reach with these. The XF 90mm does not have image stabilisation, but is a little faster, but musicians do not stand still. Shooting at 250th is not ideal in low light I think? What about the zoom 50-200? [can't really afford the 55-140] Would there be an advantage with the IS? given the lens is slower? But then I am going to get subject motion blur if i shoot at low shutter speed. And I don't really want to lug around an extending tele. for other shooting projects. Is there any news about the XF120/85mm which could be an option, I guess? So I am in a dilemma, all help and advice appreciated.
I'm playing a bit with the XF90mm since a few days and I have to say that the lens is the best in Fuji's lineup and probably my favorite so far. Sharpness, colors, bookeh, contrast, ... I'm speechless. You can find a full size JPG file here: http://j.mp/1H9gVCn Taken outdoors with one flash @ f/2, ISO 200, 1/180s I didn't tweak the sharpness at all. I only converted it to B&W and added the frame in Photoshop. The color profile used in LR to develop it is Provia. Full review coming soon...
