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……..
