Fujifilm XF35 mm F1.4 R Lens
About this deal
In real terms, the APS-C 35mm ( ~53mm on full frame) puts you in a comfortable place to shoot most of the action in urban settings. We were able to cut through the noise and capture the details that mattered, while still retaining enough overall context. Looks like the tension problem is pretty common for this lens – all three of the units that I used had this issue.
Use a hood or your hand to get rid of it, but I definitely encourage exploiting it for creative effect. R is by no means a slouch of a lens; if you decide to go with this lens you will end up with better overall low light performance, better image stabilization performance with the X-H1 (and likely any future X-Series cameras with IBIS), and shallower depth of field for that creamy bokeh that portrait photographers love so much. Through a number of firmware upgrades and the release of new cameras, most of these issues are history. For street or environmental portraiture photographers, it's the perfect focal length for grabbing an intimate candid scene without getting confrontational with your subjects.is actually one of the better Fuji lenses for close distance shots (Macro lenses aside), I believe the all lens group focussing has something to do with it. This lens is one that MANY Fuji users seem to love, however, even though it’s more expensive than the f/2 version, it’s not weather-resistant, and it focuses much more slowly and is noisier to focus. A sometimes-shoddy build quality and no auto-focus whatsoever — which ends up mattering a lot when you’re shooting wide open at f/.
I replaced mine with a 52mm Nikon cap,→ which is almost as good as the caps Fuji ships with their newer lenses. It might not be the most compact lens, but from a size perspective it’s nowhere near as bulky as the other f1. It mostly affects CDAF autofocus from what I can tell since CDAF is what engages to make all those little quick micro-adjustments. to a maximum of f/16 should cover all bases for a variety of subjects, from separated background bokeh portraits and detail shots, to full-depth location and street images.I’m not sure the focus would keep up on the X-T2 but I’ve heard that focusing is so much quicker on the X-T3! Some of their early models like mine have issues with very loose focus rings, but they’ve improved that over the years without actually doing an official refresh of the lens. There is a whole group of prime lenses in the 60mm to 65mm lens body diameter range -- starting at 14mm.
