Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50mm f/2 R WR

Today’s review: the new Fuji 50mm f/2 R WR. This is the third lens in Fuji’s new compact f/2 prime series, joining the 23mm f/2 and 35mm f/2.  All three of these lenses offer slower apertures than similar faster primes in the Fuji lineup, but Fujifilm has maintained high optical quality with these slower lenses, …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR

The Fuji XF 35mm f/2 R WR is the first prime lens that Fuji has released that duplicates an existing lens in focal length, as it joins its older f/1.4 brother as a second normal prime option for the X-Series. While the 35mm f/2 isn’t significantly smaller, it has a few other tricks up its …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R

The long-awaited Fuji 56mm f/1.2 is here.  Since first appearing on the Fujifilm lens roadmap over a year ago (then as a 56mm f/1.4), Fuji has upped the speed by a third of a stop, finalized the design and shipped one of the last missing links in the Fuji X prime lens lineup: a fast …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R

Fujifilm X-E2 with Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4

When Fujifilm first created the X-System, they came out of the gate with three outstanding prime lenses…a unique decision in today’s world where zooms are considered the bread and butter of a system, especially in the consumer market.  It set a note for what the X-System would become. As Fuji fleshed out the system, shooters …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8

The latest addition to the growing lineup of Fujifilm X series lenses is the smallest in the system: the XF 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens.  This wide normal pancake promises high image quality in an extremely tiny package.  It’s also the second Fuji lens to come without a dedicated aperture ring, presumably due to the small …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

Fujifilm has been hard at work the past two years in fleshing out their new X-series mirrorless system. While the current system only consists of eight Fujinon lenses and two Zeiss lenses, Fuji has done a great job at building a complete system very quickly. One of the latest additions is the company’s second zoom …

With the release of Zeiss lenses for Fuji and Sony’s NEX, many owners of Fuji’s X system have been wondering whether the new Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 Distagon is worth the nearly $400 price premium over Fuji’s already outstanding 14mm f/2.8.  I reviewed the 14mm f/2.8 last month, and I’ve found it to be one …

Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R

When the X-series of mirrorless cameras from Fujifilm launched last year, it began with three prime lenses: an 18mm f/2, a 35mm f/1.4 and a 60mm f/2.4 Macro.  This gave the system a nice base to start with, and provided three very high quality primes for the serious photographer.  Later last year, Fuji expanded the …
