About this deal

The XF 35mm f/2 R WR feels solid with a good sturdy well-operating aperture ring and weighs a mere 6 oz.

If you were shooting with one of Fujifilm’s 16MP cameras you will not notice the diffraction as much and as the pixels are much larger. R, which was part of the first batch of three lenses released with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 in early 2012. It feels very solid but not quite premium, and like I said above it also comes with an anodized lens hood. With its tapered design and f2 aperture, you might assume the XF 35mm f2 plays second fiddle to the more serious-looking XF 35mm f1. This is not a lens I would mount if I wanted to smear some ghosting across the frame, but if I needed to shoot towards the sun without ghosting, it’s an excellent choice.The XF 35mm f/2 R WR is ideal as an all-day carry-around travel lens and you will especially enjoy the silent and fast autofocus while out in the field. There is something to be said about everyone agreeing what we are talking about, effective or actual focal length! I wanted to have a 50mm full frame equivalent lens so I can take tight shots and don’t have to get too close to the subject when Im on the street. With a very even and impressive performance, weather resistance, great handling and high-quality finish it would be hard not to like this Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR lens. If you are looking to enter the world of Fujifilm cameras and traditionally have picked a zoom lens for your setup, the XF 35mm f/2 R WR is the kind of lens, which could change the way you shoot and I would encourage you to try it out.

For the general average Joe, working with many photographers, it’s one of the most important attributes a lens can have. Even without correction they aren’t terrible, mostly turning up at wider apertures and towards the corners. This is my review of what is still my favourite lens to have mounted on my camera, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I think it will be yours. Fujis are the closest thing to Leicas and if you are used to rangefinders this really is a similar feeling.

The close focusing point of 35cm is slightly closer than the norm for a lens of this type, but nowhere near being a macro lens. I know it’s not the most important feature, but besides delivering great image quality, this lens looks, feels and operates like a dream. For now only have the 18-55 and an X-E2, do you think the F2 will still be a better option for this camera? I m planning to make picture of product, cosmetic, homeware, so I need sharp good quality picture so can post mu review on it. Interested in your comment about liking silver lens on black bodies as to partner my x100 (original version) I am thinking of a black XT-10 with the F2 lens in silver, and having seen the straps you mention from DeadCameras feel that this would be an elegant camera combination to carry around (perhaps topped off with a match technical bug soft release!

Lightroom forces the built-in lens profile to be on, which does a very nice job with cleaning up any issues with vignetting.it’s probably not the gear’s fault and you’ll likely need to work with the settings a little more to match the situation. Where that tapper comes in handy is with the optical viewfinder of the X-Pr1 (and hopefully it's successor). The lens exterior uses all metal parts to ensure it is durable enough for a wide variety of shooting situations.
