Fujifilm Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R

First Impression: Fuji XF 18mm | Rivals

Okay so the „First Impression“ title may be a reach, I say this because the Fuji XF 18mm was one of the first lenses to ever bless my body (that sounds weird). When I purchased it several months ago I was debating between a Ricoh GR or X-T1 with this lens as my street photography kit, ultimately I ended up with X-T1, but the Fuji X100T has taken over as my go to street kit, and ever since then the XF 18mm f/2 rarely sees the light of day. The lens honestly has a bit of an odd spot in my kit, I normally shoot strictly with the X100T and the 56 f/1.2 for the majority of my work, the 35/85 full frame eqv focal length is all I really need to get any job done. In rare cases where I need to go wide, I step back, but for whatever reason I can’t let this lens go…….

Fuji 18mm F2 | K-pture

This small 18mm F2.0 is a leading Fuji XF targets placed on the market and therefore one of the oldest with the 35mm F1.4 . It is built entirely of metal, including his visor, which has the same look as the film 35 mm. Become rare thing today at Fuji as all shades are made of plastic. The aperture (f /) is controlled directly on the lens. The gear seems to me neither too soft, as is the case on all 14mm F2.8 I’ve tried, not too strong, maybe even too much. As for the development of wheel it seems quite smooth and precise. Thank you, by the way, to „focus peaking“ X-E2. The front lens does not move when in focus as the 35mm. The 18mm is stationary. It is relatively quiet; more than 35mm is more noisy (this is relative). Fuji 18mm F2.0 is not too much angle (~ 27 mm). This is a rather special focal apart. It can therefore be used for group photos and landscapes, but also for the „not too close“ portrait to avoid deforming the subject; as well as for street photography (although I know some street photographers swear by the 35mm focal length [23mm Fuji]……..

Fuji 18mm f2 review – A little piece of magic | Lyle Genyk

I am currently in the midst of a year long project that has me tied to a single camera/focal length, the x100T. As a result I have decided to do a small cull, and get rid of some gear I haven’t used in a while. During the sorting phase of this cleanse I took my 18/2 and put it decidedly in the “keep forever” pile. Here is sat beside my x100LE, and my 35/1.4. The 18 however stood out for me. I love the 18mm focal length. It fits my eye, it adds drama to images, its good and wide but not too wide. Did I mention I love 18mm? When I started my 23, the T and me project my biggest fear was not being able to use my Fuji 18/2. I simply love this little lens, there is something about its rendering that just seems magical to me. Its sharp, yet the falloff from sharp to unsharp is so gentle. Its bokeh, its flare, all perfect to my eyes. I like this lens so much I decided to review it. Its been reviewed a lot but imo gets a bad rap. I’m here to set the record straight. Consider yourself warned, this review will not be very technical, I am just not a technical guy. My photography is about feel, and my reviews are about my real experience in real world usage. If its test charts and brick walls you’re after, you have come to the wrong place……

Fuji 18mm F2 / Lens Review | Colin Nicholls

The Fuji 18mm F2 lens. Often overlooked and pitted for being the ‚worst‘ of the X Lens lineup this little, almost pancake lens packs a pretty good punch for it’s size and can be had for a real bargain these days. This review [like all my others] doesn’t focus on charts and such, its real photos I take with this lens, all edited to my style its not so much about the quality and optical characteristics of this lens as it is about the kind of photos you can take with it. That being said this review is image heavy, to the point and will hopefully give you an idea of adding this little beauty to you kit bag will do for you, enjoy……

Fuji 18mm f/2 R review | Techradar

Fujifilm’s acclaimed X series of compact system cameras is supported by an unusually diverse range of wide-angle prime lenses. These include 14mm, 18mm, 23mm and 27mm options, and there’s also a 16mm lens due in 2015. Thanks to the X series cameras‘ 1.5x crop factor, this 18mm lens has an effective focal length of 27mm (compared with full-frame cameras) along with a reasonably fast widest aperture of f/2. The retro styling of the lens is a perfect match for cameras like the Fujifilm X-T1. As a ‚pancake‘ lens, it’s physically short at 41mm, and comes complete with an aperture ring that’s calibrated in 1/3rd click stops. At one end of the aperture ring’s travel, an ‚A‘ setting gives access to program auto-exposure and shutter-priority shooting modes…….

The return of the Fujinon XF 18mm F/2 R lens… |
Lars Øivind Authen

For a very long time now I haven’t been using my XF 18mm f/2.0 lens from Fuji. After I bought the execellent Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 that has been my primary wide angle lens. The 18mm isn’t as sharp as the 14mm, and for me 14mm wide was a more interesting angle for my landscape shots. But – some days ago my 14mm broke, something is wrong with the aperture ring. I will send it in for repairs. Today, the sun was shining. The ground was covered with a thin layer of snow, the sky was blue, and a thin haze was lifting from the ground. Help – my XF 14mm is broken… so I picked up my long forgotten XF 18mm. This is the result. I took lots of pictures, so maybe I will post more later in the days to come……

March In August rally at Hyde Park, Sydney
(with Fuji X-Pro 1 & 56mm f/1.2, 18mm f/2) | Robert Catto

This weekend saw thousands of Australians take to the streets of cities across the country to protest the Tony Abbott / Liberal coalition government’s cuts to Federal spending in areas like education, health, the public sector, science and the environment, as well as their stance on immigration.  Sydney was no exception – and the march, starting and finishing at Hyde Park, featured a brief concert by local band The Jezabels at the conclusion of the event. I thought it was a good chance to test out the 56mm f/1.2 a bit more, and a few with the 18mm f/2 as well; but I was really enjoying the creativity of some of the signs & costumes people had made – and a few more that were added at the site, too……

Street Photography in Zürich mit der Fujifilm X-E2 &
Fujinon XF 18mm | Feyzi Demirel

Kürzlich war ich für ein Wochenende in Zürich und natürlich hatte ich, wie sollte es auch anders sein, meine Fujifilm X-E2 dabei. Auf Fotos von Thomas Leuthard hatte ich schon gesehen, wie gut sich auch diese Stadt als Kulisse für Street Photography eignet, so war die Vorfreude bei mir recht groß. Die Besonderheit bei dieser Reise war für mich, dass ich intensiv mein relativ neues Fujinon XF 18mm F2 einsetzen wollte. Diese Festbrennweite hatte ich mir vor einigen Monaten geholt, da ich neben dem XF 35mm unten rum noch eine Weitwinkelergänzung benötigt habe. Normalerweise bin ich bei Streetfotografie am liebsten mit einem 50mm Objektiv unterwegs, wo dann das XF 35mm wegen des Crop-Faktors (1,5x) der X-E2 super passt. Allerdings habe ich letztes Jahr schon in Istanbul festgestellt, dass weniger Brennweite auch interessant sein kann (damals 40mm), so dass ich mich ganz bewusst auf das XF 18mm einlassen wollte (kleinbildäquivalent sind es ca. 27mm)……

REVIEW: Fujinon XF 18mm f2R – The best all round X Series lens? |
Jeff Carter

The Fujinon XF 18mm f2R is one of the three original lenses launched with the X-Pro1 in 2012 and was the widest of the trio – 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 macro.  Since then there have been a few wide angles lenses added to the X-Series armoury – 14mm f2.8, 10-24mm f4, 23mm f1.4 and Zeiss Touit 12mm f2.8 to name a few – and I feel the little 18mm has become the most underrated gems in the Fujifilm XF lens lineup……

The Fujinon XF18mm f2R is a superb lens and my favourite of the five lenses I own for the X-Series system. Why it gets overlooked in favour of the wider or faster lenses that are available is frankly a shame. I was of the same opinion when I got my X-Pro1 system and thought the 14mm f2.8 would be mu wide angle lens of choice but the reality when I started to use the system in the real world was not as I expected….

Fuji 18mm f2 R Review | Rory Prior

Part of Fuji’s original XF lens lineup launched alongside the X-Pro 1, the 18mm pancake prime has a bit of a reputation for being the worst of the bunch. The problem is this reputation really isn’t deserved. Sure it’s not quite as sharp across the frame as its 35 and 60mm siblings, but it’s a very different class of lens. What it offers is a really compact, wide view of the world with a bright f2 maximum aperture and crazy close focusing abilities. It can also produce some surprisingly nice bokeh. I’ve been shooting the 18mm f2 for several months – in fact it replaced my 18-55mm zoom as I prefer shooting primes and wanted something more compact. So far I’ve not been disappointed…..
