I recently made the switch from my Canon 6D to the Fuji X-T2. I am still figuring out my lens lineup but am very satisfied with the lenses I have thus far. I have a 10-24mm, 35mm f2, 50mm f2 but am looking for something a little longer...preferably in the 70mm to 90mm range.
Earlier this week I read somewhere (sorry, don't remember where) a hint/trick about manual focusing. The person said they would shoot RAW but have the film simulation set to ACROS and the focus "blinkies" to red (I think it is MF Assist or Focus Peaking). So when you go to edit the file it isn't actually black and white because you shot RAW. However what you see in the viewfinder stands out well because of the black and white. Anyway...I tried this and was surprised at how easy it was to focus using my 50mm f2. Definitely would recommend trying this if you shoot some manual lenses though this lenses was capable of autofocus.
I have also been watching lots of videos where people have had good success adapting lenses to Fuji so I am thinking of buying some less expensive lenses as this focal length is not an extremely common need for me.
Has anyone tried the Voigtlander 75mm f2.5 or f1.8? If so, do you have any feedback. Are there any other lenses I should be considering in this focal length? The use would be portraits, flowers and occasional landscapes. I am considering this as it can be cheaper than the Fuji 90mm, can be lighter than the Fuji 90mm (although not critical for me), the f2.5 is even pocketable and I have now found manual focus to be easier than expected. I have also heard great things about the Voigtlander 75mm f1.8 only having 6 elements and therefore great micro contrast.
Would appreciate any experience, advice, etc.
