Fuji 14mm - any good for people photography??
Feb 26, 2014

Hello all,

I am seriously considering buying the Fuji 14mm lens given it's all round excellent reputation (bit of GAS possibly setting in I think ) but I do have a doubt in that I wonder if it will be fit for my purpose of shooting mostly family, friends, etc. I don't really want to spend a lot of money on something I end up not using much no matter how good it is. I do travel and it would see some use for city scapes etc, but not a great deal.

I really love using the X100 because of the context it puts the person(s) into and it's general all round versatility with the 35mm fov but wondered if the 14mm would be too wide for similar scenarios?? Is the 14mm really more suited for landscapes, architecture etc or can it be used successfully to give interesting compositions and shots with people???

Love to hear some views and advice with any examples if possible. Thanks.
