Fuji XF 35mm F2 R WR vs. XF 35mm F1.4 R Lens Comparison |
Patrick Leong

To me, the XF 35mm F1.4 is an excellent lens.  It’s combination of impressive optics, speed, focal length, versatility, size, and price make it a great workhorse, and one of the most popular lenses in the Fuji X Series system.  But now, another lens of this focal length, the XF 35mm F2 R WR lens, has been introduced by Fuji, which is sure to make some who are interested in a 53mm equivalent lens wonder which version of this focal length is best for them. I figured since I had both lenses in my hands, I would write up a comparison between these two optics.  Just keep in mind a few things as you read it: These tests are meant to be fun, and while they can tell you about certain traits a lens may have, these tests never tell the whole story……..

Day One with the FUJINON XF35mmF2 in Saigon, Vietnam |
Caveira Photography

It’s a lovely Wednesday morning here in Ho Chi Minh/Saigon, Vietnam, as I write this post buzzing on iced Vietnamese style coffee – the juice of the Gods! My wife and I have arrived to shoot a very special wedding in a few days time and it’s an honour to be involved. About 10 hours before leaving Melbourne, Australia I picked up a little something that I’d been eyeing off for some weeks, the newish Fujifilm XF35 F2. As always, I saw the good folks at DigiDirect in the city and they hooked me up with the best price around, just as they’ve done with my entire Fuji kit. They were also super patient about me trying the original XF35 F1.4 back to back against the new F2 version, and although the F1.4 certainly has its merits, the F2 won out in a few key areas, which I’ll discuss soon…….

DPReview Gear of the Year: Fujinon 56mm F1.2R APD |
Richard Butler

My Gear of the Year isn’t a product launched in 2015. Nor is it necessarily the absolute best option available. However, it is the product that I’ve grabbed whenever I wasn’t committed to something else we’ve been testing, and it’s a product I’ve really enjoyed.

What I love

  • Classic portrait focal length 85mm equivalent field-of-view
  • Bright maximum aperture for shallow depth-of-field or low light work
  • Apodization filter to ensure smoother bokeh
  • Well built solid-feeling without being too heavy

I’ve always liked the idea of classic 85-135mm equivalent portrait lenses but they’ve tended to be somewhat thin on the ground for the APS-C cameras I seem to end up testing. So I’m delighted to see Fujifilm go the extra mile and create a fast 85mm equivalent……..

Ultimate Landscape – Part1: X-Series Kit | Pete Bridgwood

With their X-series cameras, Fujifilm are creating the ultimate tools for Landscape Photographers. The soulful images created by X-trans sensors have a characteristic ‘feel’ that’s impossible to achieve using anything else. X-series cameras are also incredibly intuitive, they are a joy to use, and that translates into a more emotive overall experience; the landscape ‘aesthetic’ is no longer so restricted to experience of the final print, but extends right back to the image capturing stage, on location. Given such tantalising possibilities of artistic enlightenment, it’s no surprise that so many photographers are making the switch to Fuji, but for many Landscape Photographer converts, these are often secondary discoveries. The decision to switch systems is often driven by the massive size and weight advantages of the X-series cameras over their outdated alternatives……

Fujinon X Lens: Primes – Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR (Tested) |
SLRgear

The Fujinon XF 35mm ƒ/2 R WR was released in October 2015, offering a 53mm-equivalent field of view with a very fast aperture. The lens uses eight seals to improve weather resistance, including a seal on the lens mount itself. The Fuji 35mm ƒ/2 uses the XF mount and works with Fuji’s X-series of digital cameras. The lens ships with a round hood, accepts 43mm filters, and is available now in silver and black colors for around $400.

Sharpness
The Fujinon 35mm produces very sharp images, even when working at its widest aperture of ƒ/2. At this setting there is only a very slight amount of corner softness, in the extreme corners. Stopping down reduces the impact of corner softness; stopping down to ƒ/4 produces results which are almost tack-sharp, and these results are essentially the same with the lens stopped to subsequently smaller apertures…….

Das Fujinon XF 35mm f2.0 WR | Mehrdad Samak-Abedi

Als ich kürzlich von einem sich ankündigenden, neuen 35mm für das Fujifilm x-Mount gelesen hatte, war ich etwas überrascht. Ich habe mit dem Erwerb meiner x-pro1 im Frühjahr 2012 das Fujinon xf35mm f1.4 gleich dem Einkaufsbeutel mit hinzugefügt und es bis heute nicht bereut. Ich dachte denke nicht, dass man dieses ohnehin schon tolle Objektiv besser machen konnte. Das Fujinon xf 35mm f1.4 ist nach wie vor ein optisch ganz hervorragendes Objektiv und ich glaube nicht, dass das neue Fujinon xf 35mm f2.0 WR dem alten den Rang ablaufen will. Es richtet sich meiner Meinung nach nur an eine andere Zielgruppe. In Sachen Autofokus hat sich natürlich auch einiges verändert, aber auch der Wetterschutz (WR = Weather Resistant) ist mit der Fujifilm x-t1 für viele Fotografen interessant geworden……

LH-XF16 – Fuji’s $100 lens hood! | Jason Pitcher

When the Fuji 16mm f1.4 was announced, they also announced an accessory lens hood to go with it. This seemed a little strange, as the 16mm comes with a perfectly good lens hood as standard. The standard hood is a modern tulip design, fairly deep and reversible. It’s made of high quality plastic, with an open design that allows you to mount circular filters inside it if you so desire. So why release another design of lens hood? Is this just cynical profiteering on poor users infected with gear acquisition syndrome? Lets take a look at the LH-XF16. Looking at the Fuji lens lineup, two very early lenses, the 18mm and the 35mm, were shipped with square metal lens hoods. Unfortunately, they also came with rubber front caps, that are renowned for falling off the hood as soon as they are touched…….

All I Can Say is Wow – The New Fuji XF 35mm f2.0 R WR |
Ted A. Vieira

Oh man. I wasn’t going to get this lens. I have the original 35mm 1.4 and love the image quality of that lens. It’s really something special. (you can read my love for this lens here) I However, I’ve heard so many Fuji photographers give such raving reviews of this lens that I had to check it out. It Got Here a Day Early! I ordered this lens from B&H and expected it to arrive tomorrow, but at around 4pm this afternoon UPS dropped this (not literally) at my front door. Wow, a day early – that has to be a good omen. Did I Mention It’s Quiet! I quickly put the lens on my X-T1 and started taking a few test shots around the living room. Wow, (I’ll try not to use that word too many more times) I could not believe how quiet the focusing is on this lens. Whereas I think the 35mm 1.4 is the noisiest Fuji lens I own…….

Review: Fuji XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens |
Rob Zeigler

The 50-140mm f/2.8 lens is perhaps one of the most impressive lenses in the entire Fuji X-Mount lineup. This red-badged XF zoom combines impressive construction quality with outstanding optics, but it’s not without its quirks. I rented this lens as part of the Fuji Professional Rental Service and got to spend a few weeks testing it out. Read on to hear my thoughts! Fuji has really done a great job on the construction of the 50-140mm f/2.8. It’s a solid and weighty lens (at nearly 4 lbs) and it looks great in person. It achieves it’s WR (Weather Resistant) designation thanks in part to the fact that all of the focusing mechanism is inside of the lens itself. I’ve had some issues with particles making their way into telescoping zooms in the past thanks to them sucking said particles in during zooming, and it’s nice to know that the 50-140mm f/2.8 is sealed in multiple places (including at the lens mount) to keep that type of risk down…
