Fujifilm XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM real-world samples gallery posted

Lens tests require staying at/near base ISO, so 1/30 was the best I could do, and even that was with a bit of negative EC. It was one of only a couple times that I saw genuinely good light for a portrait, without just taking a default one because I had to check off the box. Also, the subject isn’t very fond of having his photograph taken, I had to convince him for this one.

I do see why it’s problematic, but I also see that the shot in question is still usable. It may not be an ideal shot to check for maximum sharpness, but it does still give a good representation of how it renders a portrait wide-open, which is why I included the shot. I tried to also do shots with plenty of fine detail at relatively close distances to try and show sharpness wide-open.

But yes, without that context and explanation behind it that portrait is not the best this lens can put out and does make me look slightly crap. If I get more time with the lens on the X-T1 I will look to amend the portrait example.
