The Fuji X Pro 1 and Nikkor Lenses part IV | Jim Gamblin | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Much like the 50mm f/1.2 AIS lens, I find the subject of this posting to be just too heavy, when mounted on the Fuji XP1. And again just like my early expectations that I had with the 50mm f/1.2 lens becoming one of my favorites to use with the Fuji, the 85mm is in a way a disappointment. The D3 or D700 with the 85mm f/1.4 AF-D lens, has seen a great deal of action. Also on my now gone D2X. In fact at the time when I first got the 85mm, my main camera was the D2X. With it’s APS-C sized sensor the angle of view is comparable to a 127mm focal length (cropped). I loved the combination so much that after acquiring a D3 with it’s larger sensor, I ended up getting the Nikkor 135mm f/2 DC lens (a future subject).
