Yet More Thoughts On The X100s 23mm f2 Fujinon As A Portrait Lens

Two shots from yesterday.

Overall, while I am becoming ever more impressed with both the quality of the results from this lens and also what you can actually do portrait-wise with a 35mm (equivalent) field of view, it really is just a little too wide for closer head shots. Not only because of the distortion that can occur, but also the fact you are practically climbing up the subject’s nostril to get the shot.

Now seriously hanging out for the rumoured new 50mm equivalent teleconverter.
