Say it isn't so.......

I own 3 Fuji lenses plus a Fuji Zeiss 50mm macro. They are excellent lenses and I use them regularly. I wanted a LONG lens at a decent price that Fuji could not fulfill so that's why I've jumped on the Tokina 400mm 5.6 and the Tokina 100-300mm F4. Plus I'm waiting on a Pentax A 400mm 5.6 in the mail I hope to get soon.
long lens Fujis are so pricey, I would love the 200 with the 1.4 it comes with but can't spare any more legs and arms the GFX got them all

I am considering an FA 645 150-300mm F5.6 because it can be had for so inexpensively from japan (last i looked i could get one for $450 canadian delivered... the adapter for the gfx costs that much but i could adapt to X as well and get dual purpose functional lens long enough on the XH1 to get birds and on the gfx i could crop pretty severely as well. ...
maybe if i can get @pepperberryfarm to buy a couple of my unused Fuji AF lenses....

As a matter of fact I do, I hadn't put it on my sale list yet, I have the box, manual, all original items. it is very lightly used. Let me see what they are selling for and what shipping to midwest dirtfields costs from canada (of course that led to fuji forums and has me thinking i should take it out for a walk LBA is a serious affliction, I am never good at letting camera gear go. in the last 20 years i have sold little (though a break-in cleaned me out of a lot to start over )

So many good Taks, never had this one but it looks admirable (the 28 and 35 3.5 are both stellar)

Actually , it was the 28 . .
Sorry about that.

That 60 looks like a good one .
Do you also have the 56 ?
I donít see many shots with that one , some from LeRolls , other than that donít remember many .
The shots I see with it on Flickr though , I think that 56 has the magic .

there's a rumor that I might be buying an actual Fuji auto-focus lens for my X-bodies.....


Auto-what!!!????

Ha ha

I considered the 60/2.4 for ages to get something a little longer than my 35mm, then to get something a little faster at the long end than the 18-55mm. I begrudgingly acknowledged that the 50/2 would be a better all-rounder and was ready to go for that when Viltrox's star started to rise. From what I've read and seen, I can imagine you getting on well with the 60mm, though the original trio of X lenses (35/1.4, 18/2 and 60/2.4) are not as well built as later ones, though the 35mm and 18mm are optically magical and I doubt the 60mm is any different.

I love the 56 the first three lenses I bought were the 23 1.4 the 35 1.4 and the 56 1.2. I also bought the 14 2.8 which got stolen at a protest in Paris (my bad leaving bag top open )

Most of what is on my flickr with it would be live music , I have more on instagram but it isn't easy to share here

the 23 1.4






same album has a lot from the 60 macro

56 1.2

ooh cherry blossom time.... a few years back I went out with the local Pentax brigade and shot the 56 I forgot about that

@ 1.2



@ 3.2 for some reason (i needed coffee we went really early on a sunday.....


and the 23 @ 5.6 is a great landscape use lens



and the Bower/Rokinon 8.0 mm at f5.6-8 to change it up



and the vastly underappreciated 27f2.8 @ 2.8 .. particularly good value now it has dropped in price due to the updated WR version with aperture ring

All of those shots are excellent.
