Fujifilm XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR

One of the ‘red badge’ Fuji lenses, the 50-140mm matches roughly a 75-210mm full-frame field of view for a standard telephoto zoom range.

My first encounter with the 50-140 was a bit disappointing: I hired the lens and 1.4x teleconverter for a brand photo shoot out on a farm and found that it really struggled to nail focus. My 55-200 was starting to irritate me however, with the telescoping zoom constantly drifting out when carrying and so I jumped when I saw a great deal on the faster 50-140 2.8 on ebay.

It turns out Calumet had just hired out a dodgy copy of the lens, as my bought copy has been outstanding and as I’ve got more into telephoto landscape photography it has been a joy to take with me.
