The 5 Best Fuji Lenses for the X-T1 – A personal recommendation | Mirrorlessons

In late 2013, I wrote a post about my four favourite lenses for the Fujifilm X-mount system. At the time, the list of native lenses available was still short. Now that the range has significantly grown, I decided to write this updated version of my previous article based in part on the experience I’ve gathered using Fujifilm gear over the past year and a half. The most important difference between now and almost two years ago is that today there are more high quality zoom lenses to consider in addition to the excellent primes. There are also a few third party lenses with a native X mount that fit into the equation. The X system is not complete yet but it is certainly growing fast. Right now, I personally own a Fujifilm X-T1 and a XF 35mm f/1.4 in addition to the X100T. I have tried almost every Fujifilm lens by buying them, renting them, or having them loaned to me for a few weeks. Most of the lenses I personally purchased I had to sell to make room for other gear. When the priority is to review photography gear, one inevitably needs to sell the old to fund the new. Sadly, I can’t afford to keep everything, and even more importantly, I am not a collector. The last thing I want is for my gear to sit on a shelf collecting dust when someone could be using it…….
