Austin, thanks so much for posting all this info about this project. When I was looking at some of the clips and wondering about glass for this kind of work, I immediately thought of the Fuji 19-90, partly because I am lucky enough to own one, but also because I think it excels in this kind of documentary work, which is why I own one I guess. haha. You are right about the macro function which gets overlooked I think. A super versatile lens, and parfocal is a super bonus. I just wish it was a bit faster. Thanks for sharing this...I will try to look at all the episodes!
