    I was worried about the camera shake at 1/125 but so far it looks, it is not bad. Hand held using face detect. I do wish 110mm f2 had IS.

    Lovely photo , colours and also lighting. Also the bacground is blured out nicely. Eye goes straight to the subject.
    1/125second you should not get camera shake. (Only if you nerves are shot!!)

    110mm is cutting it pretty close if one goes by 1/focal length formula and I have shaky hands. I think heft of the camera helped. I used to have same experience when hand holding my old 1dmk2 with heavier lenses.

    Thanks. Didn't have any model so used my kids for a few shots in the neighborhood.

    The good news for the medium format shooters is that the "rule" is 1/(35 mm format equivalent focal length).

    With a crop factor of 0.78 you should be OK down to about 1/90 sec.

    That's a LOVELY shot and pin sharp :)
    Your speed should be fine to hand hold unless you have the serious shakes

    Beautiful shot.
    I guess OIS on the 110mm will add weight and bulk.

    Fantastic shot, lovely narrow depth of field (look at the leaves on the path to the left of the model). How I wish I could spend £7.5k+ on this camera!!!
    (... but I'm sure the awesome technique is a big part of the success of this picture!)

    Nice image. Why don't you get a Godox V860ii-F? It does HSS, 1/125 is cutting it too close for camera shake. It supports the whole Fuji line of cameras.

    I have 5dmk3/85L which is little better DoF wise but nailing it at f1.2 is hard, so I end up shooting at f2. The 110mm f2 is nailing focus almost all the time and it has a very nice look at f2. I just wish Fuji release more glass at f2. I had tried 120mm f4 IS before and didn't like it much but then at the time I was shooting all ambient and also didn't have much time. Some folks mention that closer focussing distance of 120mm is good for head shots but I had no problems doing headshots with 110mm f2.
