Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R

Wedding Photography 2015 with Fujifilm X-T1, 35mm, and 56mm lenses |
Mark Hadden

It had been a great year for wedding photography and I am lucky to have been part of a few weddings this year and hoping for many more in 2016. So many great couples have really added their personalities to their photos. Lots of new friends and relationships have been made. I made the transition from Canon 5d3 to the X-T1 earlier this year and indeed it was a bit frightening at first. A whole new system! God what was I thinking? It took me a while to get used to it and read a lot of helpful articles on the fuji x series blog HERE. I saw a few people switching over and somehow this made me feel more comfortable. I love the x cameras and also use the X100T for wedding work, but the 35mm 1.4 and 56 1.2 are my go to lenses. The image quality from the Fuji X System is great.  I’m not going to lie and say I dont miss anything about the full frame 24mp sensor of the Canon because I do. I miss the detail from the larger sensor for sure. I also shoot architecture and use a 36mp Sony A7R for that. If I could have half way between the A7R and X-T1 for detail I would be more than happy…….

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R – | Jordan Steele

The XF 35mm f/1.4 is one of the trio of lenses that debuted with the original X-Series camera, the X-Pro 1. Along with the XF 60mm f/2.4 Macro and the XF 18mm f/2, it’s the oldest lens in the XF lineup. Starting the X-Series with an f/1.4 normal prime was a fairly big deal: it showed that Fuji was catering to the serious shooter, and it displayed a commitment to fast glass: something the other mirrorless makers left until much later in the development of their systems. Fuji also started the X series with high quality in mind and the 35mm f/1.4 features an all-metal construction with nicely ribbed focus ring. The 35mm f/1.4 is a solid lens and feels very much like some of the older manual focus 50mm lenses from the 60s. The 35mm’s focus group is the front element group, which moves and extends during focusing, which feels a bit behind the times with regards to many of the other XF prime lenses, most of which feature internal focusing. The aperture ring on the 35mm f/1.4 is fairly average by Fuji standards. It is not on par with the well-damped ring with solid detents that the XF 90mm f/2 or the f/2.8 zooms display, nor is it as loose as the terrible aperture ring on the 14mm f/2.8. The f-stop is selectable in 1/3 stop increments from f/1.4 to f/16 and generally, the ring stays where you put it. The focus ring is well damped, though not as silky smooth as the rings on several of the later XF prime lenses. It’s not bad, but it does feel slightly ‘scratchy’ due to some resistance against the barrel………

My New Favorite Lens: First Impression of the Fuji XF 35 | Rivals

The Fujifilm XF 35 wasn’t a lens on my „to get list“. It never made sense to own a 35, 50 and 85 (FF eqv.) focal lengths. It was just to close of a gap to me, but when my XF 56 went crashing down I was limited to only two options due to Fujifilm’s limited selection of lenses, grab the XF 35, or pay an absurd amount to get the XF 56 repaired. When the XF 35 arrived, I wasn’t impressed, it was slightly bigger than my XF 18, and it just didn’t seem like a killer portrait lens. I literally let it sit for a few days before I even mounted it. When I went out on my daily photography walks I either took my XF 18, or Helios 44-2 and made those units work for me. The XF 35 just didn’t get me excited, perhaps it was the horrid things I read about the slow AF, or maybe in my head it would never be my XF 56, either way I was bummed out and I started to question my purchase……..

Love is the Fuji 35mm 1.4 | Richard Wood

Ok so from the title of the blog you can probably surmise that I have a bit of a thing for the 35mm 1.4 from Fuji, guess I’d better tell you why. I’ve had the 35mm (53mm equivalent.) since late November 2014 when Fuji UK sent me a demo model and it’s given me the chance to put it through it’s paces as a portrait lens on the X-T1. The lens like all of the Fuji range is very well made and to compliment the lens construction Fuji provides a metal hood that with it’s rectangular shape has divided opinion – personally I love it, I think it makes the setup very cool looking with a nod to the kind of design that were available on vintage Leica & Voightlander glass. The aperture ring has a nice click to it and the manual focus is smooth, however being one of the elder statesman of the Fuji lens lineup it can when used in autofocus mode hunt around now and again and sometimes fail to achieve focus in very low light conditions. However for the vast majority of normal shooting it is fast and silent……

Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R Review | Alessio Michelini

I wanted to buy this lens since I got my Fujifilm X-E1 over an year ago, but at that time I decided, despite my legendary hate against zoom lenses, to buy it with the Fujinon 18-55 f/2.8-4, just because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be stuck with just one focal length at the begin. And to be honest I didn’t dislike that lens that much, it was overall very sharp, very well build and light at the same time, a good lens. But, I just can’t stand zoom lenses, and after 6 months I sold it to buy the Samyang 12mm, and I didn’t regret it. Actually, the only regret I had was not to buy the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 R straight away since the very begin. But if you buy out of the kit, it’s not supercheap, especially if you don’t plan to spend bags of money as I already invested a lot of money on the Canon system, as for me the Fuji X-E1 was just a small camera to carry around. So, spend more than 500 euro for that lens, it was a bit too much for me……..

On the Street with a Fuji XT1 and the XF35mm F1.4 | Mike Ricci

I took to the streets of downtown Denver armed with my Fuji Xt1 and the XF35mm F1.4 lens. I find this to be the perfect street setup for me, nice and light with superb image quality. While the XF35mm is not the fastest lens to focus the image quality is second to none and on the XT1 focus speed is more than adiquite…….

John Legend at Singapore GrandPrix 2014 | Luc Pher

9 time Grammy award winner John Legend, performed at the recent Singapore Grandprix 2014. We were fortunate to catch his one hour live performance. Fantastic piano play, amazing band and fabulous singing! I brought my Xpro-1 to the concert as well, but given my longest XF lens is the 35mm 1.4, I decided to bring my old Minolta MD 135mm F2.8 lens mounted via an adapter. My trusty Ricoh GR covered the wide angle shots……

Up Close? | X-Pro1 | Fuji XF 35/1.4 & Raynox +8 | Rob Lowe

If you shoot any of Fuji’s interchangeable lens, X-System bodies and are keen to shoot macros and close-ups, there is really only one option if you are looking to buy an XF macro lens; obviously, that’s the XF 60mm 2.4 R Macro lens. Personally, I know that lens pretty well and I have in the past eighteen months, shot a lot of macro images with it. It’s wonderful in rendition, clarity, size and usability (even if it does hunt, somewhat noisily, at closer focus distances). Furthermore, it’s a relatively inexpensive lens nowadays. Another option would be to purchase a set of extension tubes, adding a bit more bulk in your bag. However, what to do if you don’t want / can’t afford to – shell out £349+ for the 60mm 2.4? There is another option, besides tubes, worth considering……..

14mm&35mm | Martin Doppelbauer

I like the Fuji system so much that I have also acquired the two fixed focal lenses XF 35 mm and XF 14 mm. Below are my practical impressions and resolution chart measurements of both lenses. Again, I made a comparison with Canon cameras. In addition to the EOS 5D Mark III also the EOS 600D has been used, which has a similar sensor (18 Megapixel APS-C) as the Fuji X-E1 (16 Megapixel APS-C). For the first time, a much larger test chart was used to achieve a better image scale especially for testing the wide-angle lenses. With APS-C sensor, the scale now about 1:30 and with the full-frame sensor it is about 1:20. I found that especially the full-frame lenses benefit from the smaller magnification and show partially higher resolutions and less chromatic aberrations as in my earlier tests. Therefore, new test shots of all lenses were made under the same conditions. As always the cameras were carefully aligned on a tripod and triggered by self-timer to avoid vibration (the EOS 5D Mark III with an additional mirror prerelease)……..

Fuji XF35 f/1.4 and XF60 f/2.4 – A Street Photography Review . . . |
Kevin Shelley

. . . In my previous post I wrote that I’d purchased the XF35 & XF60 Fuji lenses as replacements for the XF18-55mm Zoom. I couldn’t wait to put them through their paces and discover if this was indeed the right choice . . . . . . Living as I do in the UK’s equivalent of the Australian Outback (the Western Lake District), Street Photography would appear to be an odd choice of hobby. My predicament was recently made all the more unbearable with these two new lenses that desperately needed trying out. Fortunately, a 30 mile trip to Barrow-In-Furness appeared unexpectedly, so I jumped at the chance to spend a couple of hours taking photo’s with the new ‘tools of the trade’…….
