56/1.2 ... was only a matter of time ...

... until I would get one, the 60/2.4 now is in peril.

Can't wait to do a model shoot within the next few days, for now our dog my model of choice, noted that I better double check the nose-length re what is in focus - and what's not.

Not really into dog photography but understand where people are coming from when you don't want to embarrass yourself - and the model - too much when you have a new lens.

Early verdict? A nice big sister to my 23/1.4 same ilk - which is a good thing! Find that the focus is quite fast, but maybe a tad deceiving because of the longer focal length.

Still it amazes me as to how different it feels, can't be replicated by reading as many reviews as you like! The weight with the X-E2 a fantastically well balanced unit!

ISO400, F1.2 1/150s

ISO400, F2.0 1/105s

Thanks, Mr Dodkin (amongst others...) for speeding things up (yeah, right...) ...
