I just bought the 50/2 myself
It is the first new lens I have purchased in 7 years typically buying used from here
I am glad I bought it. It's small, lightweight and I love the images

Really enjoying the lens. Did not think I would since I never liked 50's on my Canon crop bodies. Lens is really fast and sharp. It is definitely growing on me quickly.

I am going to keep bumping this thread with random pictures until some other people start posting! If no one else is posting pictures, be prepared to see a drop in quality as I run out of decent photos But I don't want the thread to dissolve and I want to see some pictures from other people!

very nice lens and a very good price too. I'm tempted quite a bit for the lighter size, but compared to the 1.5 stops advantage of the 56 I will keep the 56 as well if I get this.

Looking at the shots here, there is a large difference, not just in dof but there seems to be a different feel to the resulting images. I'd have a hard time deciding between them.

The 14, 23 f 2.0 and the 50 f 2.0 could be superb in a light fast to focus kit that suits a lot of scenarios, especially travel documentary and street photography. I like a tele for street, though a lot of people make do well without one.

I really appreciate how the 23, 35 and 50 as such a harmonious set of lenses.

It should be mentioned too that while I've not shot with the 50 yet, the 23 f 1.4 as well as the F2.0 and the 35 F 2.0 are excellent for Infra Red, if thats what floats your boat - like me. I'm really curious to find out about the 50. The 56 is terrible for IR, btw.

I really like the 50mm, one of the few lenses from which ever mount that I'm impressed overall.
My travel kit is 12/18/50 and don't feel like I'm missing anything TBH.

Already there, good choices! Though on DX I'm into 35mm

First outing with the Fuji 50mm f2. So far I like what I see.

More testing of the 50mm f2. I am really liking what I see from this lens.

I have been liking what I see as well. I have contemplated selling this lens to fund some other purchases but I just can't get myself to do it. The images it produces just seem so much more contrast-y and even more sharp than some other Fuji primes. It is probably the best of the (4) lenses that I own. I am not sure I will ever sell it now.

If I had to rank the Fuji f2 lenses that I own in terms of image quality, I would do it as follows:
50mm f2 > 35mm f2 > 23mm f2

But those are just my opinions. Lenstip seems to agree that the resolving power of the 50mm is very strong. I probably find the 35mm to be stronger than the 23mm simply because I am often using both so close to their minimum focusing distances, where the 23mm is not at it's strongest.

Unfortunately, if I had to rate them by the focal lengths that I find most useful, I would do it as follows:
23mm f2 > 35mm f2 > 50mm f2

Curious to know how others are finding that this lens fits into their "workflow"? I find that I don't seem to pull it out when the 35mm is on my camera but will often in conjunction with the 23mm. I kind of see my kit evolving into (2) different use groups:
-23mm f2 and 50mm f2 for general walk around, fun, travel which is nice and lightweight
-10-24mm f4, 35mm f2, (hopefully one day) 55-200mm for landscape

For now pairing the lenses in this way is my justification for owning all (3) of those lenses haha

You echo everything I've seen in reviews. I have the 35mm f2 and like it a lot, but I think the the 50 is a little better in sharpness and contrast. I like that Take of Big Head Taco called them the Fujicrons, I totally agree.

Good to see another FM'er so close. I live 12 miles south of Staunton. If you ever find yourself in Staunton on a Saturday morning, swing by the farmers' market. My wife and are vendors and I manage the market.
