    Thanks for the answer.

    But for you this lens would be good for Portrait too ?

    Yes. First off, it's a good focal length. Much longer lenses become more difficult to use, with huge bellows draw, and they have less depth of field for the most similar composition. For head and shoulders portraits, 400-500mm are good focal lengths for 8x10. The out-of-focus rendition, and the transition from in to out of focus, is smooth. Fujinon lenses are very high quality with few manufacturing defects, and the shutters are modern and reliable. I recently bought a 159 WA Raptar and discovered how much trouble old shutters can be.

    Hi,

    I don’t understand why you cannot do it with the 420 as it is well suited for this type of portraits ?

    Can you post then a portrait realize with the Fuji 420 in order for me to understand what you mean ?
