I’ve been toying with the idea of replacing my Rokkor 58mm, with the Fuji 56mm. I’m not sure if it’s just GAS, but the focal length is one that works for me, and I’d like to start doing more portraiture.
I could always stick with the ROkkor. It’s not auto focus, and it’s not nearly as sharp as the Fuji. It doesn’t have the coatings of the Fuji, and it probably has much more distortion.
What the Rokkor does have is bags of character. It’s very soft wide open, and I really like the way it renders in Black and White. So even if I do buy the Fuji, I think I’ll keep the ROkkor.
All of the images in the gallery were taken within about 20 minutes of each other, all of course on the 58mm Rokkor.
