Last night I decided to do a test using the Fuji X-T1 and 90mm lens to see what it could deliver. I did this partly out of curiosity, but also in case I ever find myself in a situation with only the Fuji system available.
The panorama below showing lower Manhattan and the financial district of Jersey City is a composite of three horizontal images taken with the 90mm at f/4 at 1/5 second with an ISO of 200. The sunset fizzled out and the scene ended up rather drab so I did punch the colors in Photoshop and by applying the Velvia/VIVID color mode. I did some tests afterwards and determined that this image will produce a sharp print as large as 6 feet wide. There is some slight motion blur due to a shaky tripod arrangement, but I found this initial test to be successful.
I find that super-sharp optics is one of the top criteria for achieving good results. The Fuji 90mm certainly supplies it.
