LENS PORN: FUJINON Super EBC XF 90mm f/2

FUJINON Super EBC XF 90mm f2 (6)

The FUJINON Super EBC XF 90mm f/2 is a telephoto prime lens with a wide aperture of f/2 that makes it nice for shooting in low light scenes as well as in creating portraits with beautifully blurred backgrounds.

Generally, the most favored focal length for portraiture range from 85mm up to 200mm because they allow the photographer a longer working distance from the subject, which reduces distortion introduced by being too close. Telephoto lenses also create a ‘compression’ effect that you don’t get with shorter focal length.

The FUJINON Super EBC XF 90mm f/2 has an excellent build. It’s made of metal and glass, no plastic parts! The weight also gives you a feeling of high quality put into every area of the lens. It’s also weather resistant so you don’t have to worry about rugged conditions like humidity, rain, extreme sunlight, going to the beach, sports.

Something’s special about Fujinon lenses with a designation of ‘R’ (means, with aperture ring), because you really don’t see any modern lenses come with such an aperture ring like in the old days of film (up to about 2005). Having this option allows the photographer/videographer more artistic control. However, the aperture and focus rings are not physically controlled, but rather electronically controlled.

Its Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) multicoated glass is very effective in allowing light transmission so that you can shoot wide open at f/2 and still get very clean, crisp and vivid photos as seen in our unedited shots below. It does well under bright sunny lighting even without the use of hood and the contrast is still awesome.

One more thing that’s interesting about this lens is that it has a close focusing 0.6 meters Minimum Focusing Distance (at this range, 0.8m to 1m is normal) so you can still take some macro shots with this lens.

In summary, the FUJINON Super EBC XF 90mm /2 is a very versatile lens that you can use in many situations, not just for portraiture — general photography, closeup shots, indoor, outdoor, low light scenes, street photography, landscape. It’s neither too long or too wide so you can take it everywhere. It looks especially nice when fitted the the new mirrorless cameras this 2017 like the FUJIFILM X-T2 and X-T20.

Here are my flower shots to show you the beautifully blurred backgrounds, nothing busy. From f/2 down to f/16, you will see that the vividness, the colors, sharpness and contrast are very consistent.

The last set of samples show how beautiful the flare effects look with this lens. Also, this is to show you how clean the images look even with strong backlight. Do you see any color fringing?
