Fujinon XF 10-24 f4 review | Wim Arys


In lens design, larger and heavier lenses generally stand for better optical performance. For a small and lightweight mirrorless system like the Fuji X, it seems some compromises will always have to be made (if you want to keep it portable at least). It must be a difficult balancing act for any manufacturer to make. Luckily Fuji generally gets this balancing act right. A f/4 wide angle zoom is not the fastest ever, but if this results in a good performing lightweight lens like this, this is a trade-off that does not bother me at all. I would have preferred that the Fujinon XF 10-24mm performed more uniformity at larger apertures throughout the range and was sharper at the edges. But the LMO or a good RAW developer like Iridient corrects these issues to a large degree. Generally speaking, you’ll get the best edge-to-edge sharpness out of this lens at around f/5.6-f/8 up to f/11. For other uses like portraiture where you’d only need the center really sharp, there is no problem with shooting at f/4. Lens distortion is very much under control too, even at 10mm…..
