Fujifilm Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R

Al Wakrah Port with Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0 | Christian Silang

It was fine afternoon and since I got home early from the office, I’ve decided to go for a walk and to test the combination of Fujifilm XPRO2 and Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0. On that time Al Wakrah Port came up to my mind and it’s only a few minutes drive from my house. I’ve got my Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0 from my friend in exchange with my Fujinon XF18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS and since I’m not a fan of zoom lens, without any hesitation I decided to swap it. Here’s my though on Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0. Fujinon XF18mm f/2.0 R is a fast fixed focal length equivalent to nearly 28mm with angle view of 76.5 degrees. It’s a pancake type lens with good color rendition and not so noticeable distortion. Sharpness at f/2.0 is quite impressive on the center but soft on the corners, over all sharpness will start from f/4.0 to maximum f/16.0. Focusing on my XPRO2 is quite fast and accurate, little bit noisy while focusing same as XF35mm f/1.4. It can be a daily use lens due to it’s compact size of 64.5mm x 40.6mm (Diameter) / 2.54 x 1.60 inches and weighting 116g (4.0 oz) excluding lens cap and hood…….

Spin Out With the Fuji 18mm | Dave Young

Being half term for schools in England, and as per usual raining it’s difficult to know what to do with the kids to keep them occupied. As it happens the British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire is not too far from us so we decided on a quick trip down there to see what it had in store having had a bit of a make over recently. Being home to the largest collection of British motor vehicles it’s home to a lot of different vehicles so is a great opportunity to explore the the good, the bad and the ugly of the UK motor industry. I wanted to travel light for the day, so just took my Fuji X-Pro1 and 18mm lens on a neck strap which was perfect for slinging over a shoulder and using as and when needed. No need for a bag or rucksack, just a lightweight system for an easy day out……..

Fujifilm’s Most Underrated Lens | Jordan May

The first Fujifilm lens I purchased was the 23mm f/1.4 R. Then, I picked up the 18mm f/2 R. I no longer own the 23mm. Why? Although the image quality and performance of the lens was great, I really wanted a smaller, more compact lens. I nearly replaced it with the 27mm f/2.8 R, until I borrowed a friends. The 41mm equivalent focal length felt very odd. It wasn’t for me. I also didn’t like giving up 2 full stops. I got my hands on the 16mm f/1.4 R WR and fell in love, but I decided to spend less so I could pick up some other accessories. Do I regret settling on the 18? Not a bit. he 18mm is nearly identical in length to the 35mm f/2 with hoods installed. Without the hoods, the 18mm becomes nearly a pancake lens……

Revitalisation of 18 | Jonas Rask

After testing the X70 and in the process completely falling in love with the wider field of view that the 28mm eq presents, I thought I would grab my old XF18mm f/2 from the cupboard and give it a renaissance run. I always liked the XF18mm f/2. Mostly because of the focusing speed. Being one of the original 3 lenses designed for the X series, it was by far the fast focusing of that original triplet. But even after the introduction of newer, faster XF lenses it still remains among the fastest. Image quality of this lens has always been criticised. Indeed it is the lowest corner resolution lens within the XF eco system, but center sharpness is good. For some X-series users this fact renders the lens pretty much useless for their type of photography. For street usage where critical corner sharpness isn’t always the important thing, its a very great lens. It’s small and fast. Two features that clearly outweigh the loss of resolution near the corners.  When all this is said its still a very sharp lens! All XF lenses are……

Comparison: Fujinon 16mm f1.4 v Fujinon 18mm f2 | Jeff Carter

The small but perfectly formed Fujinon XF18mm f2R has been the lens I have used the most since I bought it in 2013.  The fast f2 aperture along with the small size and 27mm equivalent angle of view makes the 18mm f2 my ‚go to‘ lens. However has the new 16mm f1.4 usurped this position?  The slightly wider 24mm equivalent focal length is one that I used to have when I used film cameras and for landscapes it is a great lens to have in the bag.  But how different is the 18mm and 16mm?  Is that 2mm going to make a huge amount of difference?  and will that extra stop on the aperture compensate for the difference in the physical size of the 16mm compared to the 18mm? …..

14mm f/2.8 vs. 16mm f/1.4 vs. 18mm f/2 | Fuji vs. Fuji

It’s been relatively easy to decide between Fuji’s wide angle prime offerings up until recently. One could either go for the really wide, full(er)-featured, king of landscapes, the XF 14mm f/2.8, or the smaller, faster, lighter, more portrait and street-focused XF 18mm f/2. There was enough of a variance in focal length to make choosing simple, or owning both perfectly viable. Fuji has thrown a large wrench into our purchase decision with the release of the XF 16mm f/1.4. It packs all the features of the 14mm f/2.8 and adds weather sealing, a Nano GI coating, offers even faster aperture performance than the 18mm f/2, but comes with a significant enough size and weight penalty. This article will hopefully help you decide which wide angle primes are right for you, if any…..

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……
