Shot at f2, and sometimes f2 is plenty good enough.

I'm starting to think that the Fujinon XF 50mm f2 lens and Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera is the ultimate street shooting combination (for me).

The more and more I look at your shots, the more impressed at how well the 50/2 isolates your subjects. I'm surprised for such a short lens (eff 75mm).

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, B2, that’s precisely why I’ve been using this lens so much lately.

It's funny how the beret hat never goes out of style. Perhaps I should buy one and wear it... someplace where nobody knows me of course.


Some people don't like to use public transportation. They like the convenience of owning and driving a car. Not me.
I love public transportation. I have no problem standing on the platform and waiting for the subway to arrive. Yep, no problem at all.
I could stand here for as long as it takes for the subway to show up.


Oh well, the subway has arrived and it's time to go.


All the best,
Mike

They say the grass is always greener on the other side. The grass in Yama$hita park is pretty darn green.
By-the-way, the grass must feel pretty darn good too.


Not so many people in the park today.

Hey Mike, quick question.

Auto Focus, Manual Focus or Zone Focus (ok, prefocusing on a spot you know they will be at)?

Thanks.

B2, with any of my other cameras the answer would be manual or zone focus. However, with the X-Pro2 and the Fujinon XF 50mm f2 R WR lens the auto-focus is so fast all I have to do is point and shoot and on a sunny day you can pretty much be sure you will nail the focus. I use single point focus so I do have to get the subject in front of the single point

The same goes for these lenses too:

Fujinon XF 16mm f2.8 R WR lens
Fujinon XF 18mm f2 R WR lens
Fujinon XF 23mm f2 R WR lens
Fujinon XF 35mm f2 R WR lens

To a lesser degree:
Fujinon XF 60mm f2.4 R Macro lens

All the best,
Mike
