The lovely lady who puts up with my meanderings and idiosyncrasies - for 43 years Sept 7.

First shots from Fuji 50mm F2 WR

Thoughts?

Not sure which you are asking after, but I think you've done well on both counts Bob!

Nothing in particular, just interested in anyone's take on the image per se. Generally I ind portraits do not generate much discussion outside People Forum.

Thanks for your kind comments,

Bob

Nice portrait Bob. She looks like she has a lot of patience. ;-)

How are you liking that 50mm F2?

Her affection for you shows in that look, Bob. Enjoy the new lens!

Very nice shot of your wife Bob. Mine (who has put up with me for only 30 years) has had to do a lot of posing lately as I've tested multiple lenses. Nine times out of ten, I don't get a look that pleasant, but at least I can tell whether it's in focus or not.

Thank you re portrait,

I shed a 56mm f/1.2 last year, large, heavy, superb IQ but seldom used - probably best for studio and dedicated portrait work.

The 50mmF2 to me is very seductive: fine IQ from what I can tell, really fast AF (makes X-Pro1 seem like a new camera in that area), small, light, and WR (the real meaning of which is unknown). We'll be travelling mid September so paring back kit with that in mind. May go to 35mm F2 WR from 1.4 XF as the next move - not sure.

Best,

Bob

She is becoming more tolerant, this an exceptional instance
