Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR Lens Reviews Roundup


From Lenstip conclusion:

“If you decide to buy the small, handy Fujinon XF 35 mm f/2 R WR you have to agree to compromises. Still you get a lot in return. The lens will enchant you with its sensational image quality beginning already from the maximum relative aperture. It is a very solid argument, making the tested lens completely recommendable…”

From The Phoblographer conclusion:

Is this a good lens? It’s a freakin’ fantastic lens. Is it for everyone? No. If you need the weather sealing, then go for it. But on a personal level, I have no reason to tell someone to not buy the 35mm f1.4 instead. If you want to do street photography, this also is a good option, but the zone focusing system available with many other lenses via the focusing ring is much more attractive to that community.

From ePhotozine verdict :

With a very even and impressive performance, weather resistance, great handling and high-quality finish it would be hard not to like this Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR lens. The Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR is an ideal standard lens for the range of Fujifilm cameras.

From PhotographyBlog review:

Competitively priced at £299.99 / $449.95, we’d definitely recommend the Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR as a must-have lens for all Fujifilm X-mount users. If you really need the faster f/1.4 aperture offered by the older XF 35mm F1.4 R, then that lens is still worth considering, but for everyone else, the new Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR is the most well-balanced “nifty-fifty” for X-series photographers.

The Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR features 9 elements in 6 groups, including 2 aspherical lens elements, and an iris diaphragm with nine rounded blades for a pleasing bokeh.
