Fujifilm XF 50mm F2 R WR lens reviews

From PhotographyBlog review :

Overall, the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR is a well performing lens that is a great addition to any Fuji kit bag. You get a small, compact design which delivers pleasingly sharp images, with attractive bokeh.

From Cameralabs conclusion :

Fujifilm’s XF 50mm f2 is a compelling alternative to the XF 56mm f1.2 for anyone who wants a short telephoto lens for portraits or details. Most obviously it’s comfortably smaller and lighter than the XF 56mm and around half the price too. It has quicker, quieter and much closer focusing, making it preferred for spontaneous shots, movies and product photography, and it enjoys the benefits of weather sealing too.

From ePhotozine verdict :

The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 50mm f/2 R WR is another superb Fuji lens, sharp, crisp and with pleasant bokeh, compact, weather resistant and relatively modest in price. Another fine Fujifilm Editor’s Choice award.
