Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro – does it work for infrared?

Fujinon XF 80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro @ f/2,8 and black&white.

One of the readers of my blog has pointed out that I haven’t wrote about using XF 80mm f/2.8 Macro for infrared photography. Well, in infrared I take landscapes and for landscapes I prefer wide angle lenses. But inspired by the inquiry, I decided to give this lens a try.

Correct tool for the task

Well no, it’s not about a sheet. I like Panasonic S1 more and more, but the fact that I like it cannot hide the fact that no camera is the best for every task. Each task requires the right tool. S1 is great for portraiture, landscape and interiors. But for example for macro – I prefer something different here. With a smaller sensor – because it’s easier for a greater depth of field, with a macro lens – because it’s easier to have the right scale. Using the moment of breath, today I compared the ease of taking macro photos using the Panasonic S1 + Lumix S 24-105 (because there is no macro lens for the S1 yet, and Lumix S 24-105 is almost macro) and Fujifilm X-H1 + Fujinon 80mm Macro. There could only be one result.

Walking in Royal Lazienki

Sunday afternoon, warm, sunny day – a good opportunity to walk with the camera. Today it was Royal Lazienki in Warsaw, Poland, as on Sundays there are piano concerts, what allows for combined audio and visual experience. Today I have used Panasonic S1 with Panasonic 24-105. This set is very good for landscape as the sensor allow for a long scale of highlights and shades while the lens gives perfect clarity and sharpness.
