About this deal

If you are looking for a quality prime lens to add to your camera bag, this is one you shouldn’t overlook. The superior performance from the new lens across much of the frame comes as no surprise if you examine the MTF charts for each, and see the XF 35mm f2 simply has a better profile for resolution. It’s great, results from this lens are very satisfying for me and I don’t have any complains for AF on my X-T10.

It has the right amount of weight and heft, and it really balances out well with the small X-series cameras. I’ve also dropped the lens without any consequences and after a year of shooting almost 3,000 photos with this lens, it’s still just as good as the day I got it. degrees, making this a standard lens for APS-C and equivalent to using a 53mm lens on a 35mm format camera. Once your application has been accepted, usually within minutes, we will immediately dispatch your equipment. But overall I still preferred the newer XF 35mm f2: it focuses faster and more quietly, it’s sharper in the middle of the frame where it counts, it’s weather-sealed, it’s a little smaller and lighter, and it’s also a bit cheaper.A very nice review; I have found that Fuji X photographers seem to be able to convey an enthusiasm and you-can-do positivity about the brand that is not found on other camera brand reviews.

For the general average Joe, working with many photographers, it’s one of the most important attributes a lens can have.If you are planning a purchase and would like to support our site you can do so, at no additional cost, by using the affiliate link below. The lens markings are engraved with precision and filled with white paint, a small point maybe, but one that is a pointer to the quality standards adhered to, as this can be more durable than surface printing. As I’m writing this, in July 2022, I was almost certainly too harsh on the poor Fujifilm 35mm f/2 and if I was made of money I could definitely see space in my camera bag for both – I have a little baby now and would appreciate much faster autofocus, something more reliable and just a lens that’s so inconspicuous when wandering the streets. Sure, it’s nice to have other lenses, but most photographers I encounter have them more from a place of want rather than a place of need. Finally, weather resistance is very welcome and increasingly becoming an essential feature for lenses and camera bodies.

This is subject to the value of the additional products not exceeding the value of the qualifying product. It’s one of the few lenses where you don’t have to worry about the aperture and focus changing if you pick the camera up wrong. Then, if you decide to sell, MPB will pick up your kit with a free insured DPD collection and you’ll get paid cash into your account within days. However the picture of my daughter and the one of my niece where they are facepainted are both manually focussed.

Finally, I love this lens so much because I can shoot almost anything with it, bar the type of photography that requires a telephoto lens. I have also used the XF 35mm f/2 R WR extensively during our travels on the Fujifilm X-T1 and Fujifilm X-Pro2 cameras.

The technical characteristics of the 35mm f2 is where it sort of falls short which is understandable for the size.

I was really interested in manual lenses, which you are using, but next I figured out that in Fuji cameras when you take your manual lens, there is no exposure metering. This gives the bokeh some character but I’ve also noticed some interesting shape throughout the whole range of the lens. MPB will also keep you informed about the status of your gear at every step of the way and the whole process is carbon neutral. The fine texture of the metal parts further enhance the shooting experience and ensure it can be operated easily and accurately with wet or gloved hands.During that time he has worked with a range of leading brands, as well as a host of professional photographers within the industry. It’s not uncommon for lenses to have some barrel or pincushion distortion, so I wouldn’t get too worked up over this, but it’s good to know what to expect. How this lens handles lens flare might be seen as positive or negative, depending on if you like flare in your pictures.
