    Thanks to Roberts Camera I had the opportunity to shoot with the new Fuji 50mm 1.0 lens.  This is an incredible lens being the first AF f1.0 lens.  I introduce the new lens with a ton of images.  You can even download many of them so you can see for yourself.  Check the article out HERE

    Very thoughtful review, Kevin―or initial impressions essay, if you prefer―which echoes but doesn’t answer a number of questions I’ve had about the rationale for this lens.  It may indeed represent a significant technical achievement and, as you say, Fuji deserves credit for the breadth of their X-series lens product line, but I have difficulty figuring out what kind of photographer would have sufficient need for one of these to justify the $1500 U.S. price.  I rather wish Fuji had put the development resources that they obviously invested in this lens into the design of the 16-80mm f/4.0, which has been a  disappointment, or some new consumer-grade lens with more general applicability and a broader potential market.

    (And thanks for providing the downloads.)
