Fuji XE-2's battle of the bokeh: Legacy+SB 35 0.85 vs 35 1.4 equivalent vs. 23 1.4
9 months ago

Quick snapshots to display the difference between the bokeh of 23 1.4, 35 1.4 equivalent (Canon FD 50 1.2 @ 2.4 with SB ~ f/1.7), which has been measured in practice at that setting to give almost same blurry background as Fuji's 35 1.4 @ 1.4, and 35 0.85 equivalent (Canon FD 50 1.2 @ 1.2 with SB).

Nothing fancy and the composition is not exactly the same between the shots but it might still prove useful for some considering such a setup or interesting for others. On my side, I like all combinations and it's good to be able to  get that extra bit of bokeh with the SB if and when I need to.

Out of camera JPG, auto ISO, shutter speed 30-60, no flash, slight crop on some pics.

I'm not throwing my 85 1.2 in there, saving it for another thread:)
