    Stopped by my favorite camera store the other day. Good thing it is 45 min away and across the river. I wanted to see what used lenses were available. Ended up with the 56mm new on sale.

    Quincy sat for me and got bored.

    Nice lens, really nice portraits.

    I also keep dropping in to my local store waiting to see if he gets a used 56mm.

    I just want it for portraits, but can't the cost the cost new as I mainly use shorter lenses for portraits (35mm and 23mm).

    The 50/2 isn't half bad for portraits. Gave up looking for a used 56mm!

    The 35mm stays on the camera most days. I think I will keep the 56mm on now. I like the 85mm on my full frame so the 56mm on the Fuji feels natural view to me.

    Looked up his Instagram and wow! Thanks for the info. I started following him.

    The day I got the lens on Saturday, friends were driving thru our area and I snapped off a few with the lens. The ground was saturated so took a few on the porch. I noticed right away the sharpness. Think this was at f3.5 and the dog photos were at 2.2.
