Yaletown at 75 …mm …equivalent

Some quick street test shots with the Fujinon XF 50mm f2 R WR lens on the streets of Yaletown this afternoon. This is a nice compact lens with a 75mm equivalent field of view on the Fuji X cameras sensor. It’s a good choice for a compact but still pretty fast lens when you want a bit more reach to bring your subject up closer. I’m keen to try it for some portraits as well.

Most of these shots are wide open at f2.0 as I was curious to see how this lens performs at maximum apterture which is not typically how I shoot street photos. I was impressed with the sharpness and contrast of this lens wide open. Fujifilm X-T2 at ISO 200
