WOW! Why did it take me so long to buy this lens? I sold all my Nikon gear in late 2015 and switched to the X-T1 with five lenses. It wasn’t until June 2017 that I bought this incredible lens: the FUJINON XF 50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR.

It has quickly become my most favourite lens in the FUJIFILM X Series lineup, having stayed glued on my X-T2 for the last 16 months. I think it is an amazing lens for portraits and travel. Yes, that’s right, travel! Not the lightest lens in Fujifilm’s lineup, but I have never regretted taking it on a trip with me.
