Yes, for portrait sessions, the 60/2.4 lens is my go to lens.

However, most of the images are too sharp, requiring time & effort to smooth out the model's skin in PP.

That's why I'm excited for this lens!

As long as I can get their eyes in focus, I'll be set!

Taz98spin, do you find the focusing slow on this lens or is it ok? The reviews I read all say that it's slow to focus.. what are your opinions on it?

Yes, the 60/2.4 is the slowest lens for the X system.

You just need patience with this lens.

Even last Sunday, during a shoot in good lighting, I got several good image in a row.

Put the camera down to ask the model to move her hand in a different way, put the camera back up to my eye (neither her or I moved closer or away from each other), and lens would not focus.......!

So yes, it's slow and you need patience, but the images are super sharp and out focus areas are nice!
