Fuji 27mm F2.8 – The best lens for travel photography: pretty, tiny, and SHARP! | Monica Lent

Croatia, land of dragons and Rakija, was the site of my most recent European excursion – this time, with a new accessory: Fujifilm’s 27mm f2.8 lens. It stayed glued to my camera maybe 90% of the time, and gave me most of my favorite shots from the whole trip. I took over a hundred photos a day with it! Here’s why I think it’s the best lens I’ve used for travel. Looking for a technical review? This isn’t it – but here are some helpful ones…..

Review of the Fujifilm XF 27 mm F/2.8 R Lens: Convenience over Quality | Improve Photography

I switched to Fuji last October after much debate (I love it and am so happy Jim’s endorsement finally pushed me over the edge).   I had a certain amount budgeted that I calculated to get the set up I wanted.  By a stroke of blind luck, my local camera shop advertised the wrong price on the exact set up I was looking for and it saved me $300.  At the same time, Adorama advertised a sale on the Fujifilm XF 27 mm F/2.8 lens for under $300.  Fate seemed to good to me so I decided to pull the trigger on this lens.  I have been using the lens often since then and, while I don’t necessarily love the performance compared to my more expensive lens, I love the convenience it offers…….

FUJINON XF 27MM F/2.8 | John Caz

No matter what your kit comprises off, the one lens that every Fuji shooter should also have in his arsenal is the Fujinon XF 27mm f.2.8 pancake lens. Its a bit pricey considering its simplified construction, small size and slow speed, so if you don’t want to pay a little over 400€ for it you can find one on the second hand market for under 300€. Its a lens most Fuji photographers will most probably pass due to its lack of an aperture ring and slow speed but I urge you to try one and then I’m sure you will never leave home without it – read on to find out why.The XF 27mm f/2.8 Fujinon lens is probably the best lens in the entire Fuji lineup for street photography. A lot of you may disagree, but generally speaking, with an optical view of 40mm its a good compromise between the wide 35mm or the short tele 50mm (which are the 2 most preferred lenses for street). Its also very unobtrusive which combined with the retro and already small mirrorless X-T1 make for a killer combination which only the X100 can beat……..

A Practical Review of the Fuji XF 27mm | Joe Jongue

Let’s face it, a pancake lens is not something you would normally go out and buy as your first lens however if I could turn back time the XF 27mm f2.8 would have been one of the first lens I add to my kit. This won’t be your typical lens review with charts and numbers instead I’ll discuss the lens in practical everyday use, the Pros, and Cons along with sample photos. The 27mm falls in the same family as other pancakes such Canon’s 24mm & 40mm, Olympus 17mm and the Nikkor 10mm just to name a few. In the past pancake lenses haven’t been known for their image quality and are rather slow with apertures usually set between f2 and f2.8, they are like an acquired taste, you either like them or you hate them. Those that do like them do so for their size and portability so naturally when Fuji’s 27mm was released there wasn’t much love for this lens…….

Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 Review: Pancake Lens For The X Series | Patrick Leong

If you want something that will produce excellent results all while maintaining a compact form, a mirrorless camera is hard to beat. To match the small size of some of these mirrorless cameras, many manufacturers have built their own version of a “pancake” lens. Fuji has a couple of lenses that are very compact like the XF 18mm F2 but the XF 27mm F2.8 is their first official pancake lens. The truth is, I didn’t have much desire to try this lens when it was first released. It didn’t seem like it had that many qualities that would help it stand out from the rest of the XF lenses other than its compact size. But when I was planning for my trip to Walt Disney World, I wanted a very compact system, so I wouldn’t have to lug around so much gear in a place where there are long lines and a lot of walking. I brought with me a Fuji X-T10, and I decided to give the XF 27mm a try because the focal length was right between a traditional 35mm and 50mm, and therefore, my thought was that this one lens coul get me through my trip. Plus, I thought the ultra compact size would be a great match with the small dimensions of the X-T10. Here are my results from this lens and what I think of it…….

More Pancakes? Why Not! First Impression of the Fujifilm XF27 | Rivalsvs

When I first purchased my Fujifilm X-T1 the XF 27 was the first lens I looked at. At the time it was the closest thing, if not identical to the Canon 40mm STM that I was shooting with on my 6D. For whatever reason the lack of an aperture ringed turned me off from grabbing the lens and I opted for the XF 18 instead. This was probably one of the dumbest decisions I had made, not because the XF 18 is a bad lens, but because I absolutely loved my Canon 40mm and it too didn’t have an aperture ring… As you can see a lot of knowledge and growth has transpired since making these early purchases. Fast forward till today and I found myself unhappy with my current setup. I love my XF 35, it’s the most versatile lens I’ve ever used, it has great optics, produces great bokeh when needed and although it’s not as small as the XF 27 I still consider it compact. There was just one downfall… The damn focusing. It was to slow. When shooting events or portraiture no problem, but on on the streets the auto focusing just wasn’t going to cut it. At f/2.8 I assumed the XF 27 would do a better job, on top of that it was compact and the price point I was able to grab it at screamed „no brainer“. Now that I have it in my position here’s what I think…….

Street Photography in Mailand mit Fujifilm XF 27mm | Feyzi Demirel

Ziemlich genau um diese Zeit, vor einem Jahr, war ich für ich einen kurzen Shopping-Trip in Mailand (Italien). Natürlich, wie sollte es auch anders sein, war ich, zum chronischen Leidwesen meiner Frau, mit meiner Kamera im Gepäck unterwegs und konnte einige Fotos machen. Viele Monate später bin ich auch endlich dazugekommen diese Fotos zu sichten und nun auch zu präsentieren. Normalerweise klappt dies durchaus schneller, aber die Prioritäten waren dieses Jahr definitiv an anderen Stellen höher. Ich würde heute mal die Chance nutzen wollen, einiges zu der Stadt zu sagen und gerne auch zu meiner damaligen Ausrüstung. Diese bestand damals aus dem Fujifilm X-E2 in Kombination mit dem Xf 10-24mm und dem Xf 27mm F2.8. Zu den beiden Erstgenannten habe ich in der Vergangenheit schon viel gesagt, so dass ich hier mal gerne etwas über das Xf 27mm berichten möchte. Aber erst mal zur Stadt…….

Fujifilm XF 27mm f/2.8 | Matthew Hart

I have been shooting with the Fuji X System now for since June 2012 and as many people know have fallen head over heels in love with the brand. Over this time I have used most of the cameras and lenses but a few have slipped through my fingers. Back in the summer a friend of mine posted his 27mm lens on facebook in the Fujiholics group for sale and it was such a great price I thought I would just buy it even if I used it now and then it looked so small I could just pop it in my pocket ! So the deal was done and the lens was mine, I bolted it on to my X-T10 and its been on there ever since! I love shooting with both my X-T10’s when out and about and normally the 35mm f/1.4 and the 90mm f/2 are my walk about kit this little lens has taken over from the 35mm lens, I still carry the 35mm f/1.4 with me for when the light drops off in the evening or for adding the little bit of length back in the shot but as lenses go this 27mm lens is just perfect for the X-T10. With the 27mm f/2.8 on the X-T10 it about the same size as the X100T making it perfect size for my go everywhere Street camera for when I was to shoot using the super fast AF system on the X-T10. I always used to shoot my X100T on manual and zone focus but the X-T10 changed all that for me, I now shoot AF all the time and the focus tracking is spot on……..

Review Fujinon XF 27 mm f/2.8 | Anno Huidekoper

The Fujinon XF 27 mm f/2.8 is a pancake lens and at first glance evokes a feeling of, “Is that it?” Once placed on the camera, this lens appears to stick out less than 2 cm, and the front lens looks more like a contact lens than a lens for a camera. And the weight, not even 80 grams, amplifies that feeling. The lens design is simple: just 7 lens elements divided into 5 groups. Mind you, the fewer lens elements, the less chance of internal reflections. Only in moderation is the master revealed. The field of view is the same as a 40 mm lens on a full-frame camera. That makes the perspective standard. With a super-wide angle, you can make use of the very specific perspective; the image will be drawn out, as it were. If you want to compress the subject a bit, then you use a telephoto lens……

Xtend your Fuji system: All about that Hood | Rene Delbar

Let’s be honest: next to the ease-of-use of the Fujifilm X cameras, the advantages of their sensor, the performance of the XF glass and the resulting image quality, many X-shooters just love the retro design and handling of the bodies. Right from the start, with the original X100, we got a compact tool to completely enjoy taking pictures. If you’re old enough to have started photography with roll film or 35mm cassettes: just add “again” at the end. In order to augment the “old days” experience, we’ve been adding leather carrying and wrist straps, half cases, thumb grips, soft releases, old-fashioned cable releases… In the end though, you can’t but ask yourself: Why didn’t Fujifilm bring us sexier lens hoods? It started rather well actually. The X100’s fixed 23mm lens comes with a nice metal vented release. That comes handy when using the optical viewfinder, as less of the field of view is obstructed (as long as the openings are well aligned, hence the bayonet mount)……
