Happy Mother’s Day: Shots With The X-Pro1 And The XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro

Happy Mother’s Day: Shots With The X-Pro1 And XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro

For all you mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day!  Here are a bunch of photos from the flowers my sister bought for my mom all shot with the Fuji X-Pro1 and the fantastic XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro lens.  This new lens for the X-Pro1 is great but there are a few quirks. I know I promised you all a review, and I’m very sorry I haven’t delivered yet but I promise that it’s coming.  Bergen County Camera has been nice enough to lend me some photographic gear to try out, and review so I’ve been very busy!  The weather has also been a little dreary.

Just to give you all a taste of the lens, the 60mm is very sharp.  It is a bit slower than the XF 35mm F1.4 R lens but I think the 60mm is better built than the other lenses.  It feels a little more solid, and the aperture ring is a bit smoother.  It’s a nice size too.  Without the hood, the 60mm is just a bit bigger than the XF 35mm.  In macro mode, the depth of field can be very narrow, and since I haven’t used a lens as long as a 90mm equivalent in quite some time, it’s been a bit strange getting use to it :).

Once again, I apologize for the late review.  I hope you all stay tuned for it!  I will also have some cool stuff coming right after my XF 60mm F2.4 R Macro review.  For now, here are a few quick shots I was able to get before going out to dinner with my family.  All jpegs were taken directly from the X-Pro1 without any editing.  I hope everyone enjoys their Mother’s Day!  Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!
