Well look who arrived in the XF scene to brighten up our days. The Rokinon 85mm 1.4 in native XF mount. No more adapters to fumble with. I was chatting on Twitter with Riley Joseph in terms of the size and guess what, its 17mm shorter than the XF 55-200mm. The 85mm 1.4 comes in at 78 x 101 mm versus the XF zoom at 75 x 118 mm. So not bad at all for a portrait lens at 1.4.
There are some portraits and images of the lens mounted on an X-E1 over at the Fuji X Spot forum here.
@riley_joseph The 56 will be in my Billingham asap! @doncraigphoto @jorgeledesma
@doncraigphoto @jorgeledesma I’m going with the more svelte XF 56mm 1.2.
@jorgeledesma @riley_joseph Which of you will get it first? Would be fun to try!
