    XF 50 on XT20. I also used ACR 9.9 on the RAW files and it did a great job.

    X-T20 and Acros. I went for monochrome because there is still very little color this time of year and the trees that line the road are mostly sticks.

    Looking at these images now, they look bad. They are so sharp when I see them in SmugMug. I must be doing something wrong.

    Steve, it's probably the compression algorithms applied by the forum software; it would be particularly noticeable on shots like these with a lot of fine detail. Try uploading smaller files, on which the aggressive compression would be less obvious (counter-intuitive, I know!)

    Thanks. It still looks pretty bad. I'm choosing sizes of only 500 x 800 in Smugmug so I may try reducing the image size in PS and saving a smaller version to SmugMug. I'm not doing the 50 any justice as is.

    Understood. I'm keen to see what this lens can do because I'm contemplating one myself.

    I tired reducing the size images in PS and they look better. They still looked better on my iPad.

    Try Tumblr? I upload all my work there and I know a few others who do too, and I've not really seen much compression from tumblr.

    He jumped in to do a light test. And boy can you tell how happy he was to be a model

    First shoot with the 50, and so far it does not disappoint for portrait work
