Excerpt: If you heard this is a "good" lens...think again. Have been using Leica and Nikon glass for over 40 years on a professional basis. The new Fuji glass is outstanding. This lense is SHARP!! Love the way it renders wide open. Solid beautiful build. I would put it any day head to head with my Leicas.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens with an X-E2 for landscapes, street and low-light interior shots. Image quality is tack-sharp across the full sensor area from about f2.8 to f8 and distortion is just about non-existent. Build quality is first-rate. This is the best lens I've ever used.
Excerpt: Absolutely pristine glass! As mentioned in a couple previous reviews, the aperture ring is easily bumped. This caught me once, thus four stars and not five. I now tape it in place with a piece of electrical tape.
Excerpt: Without question my favorite Fuji X series lens! Sharp as a tack even wide open at f1.4, well crafted and balances well on the X-Pro 1. Really can't think of a way they could have improved upon it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This lens is outstanding. Great contrast, quick focusing, very versatile - and it's not too big or heavy. The clutch design is great and it works well with the recent X-T1 firmware upgrade with auto/manual hybrid focusing.
Summary: In my Nikon 35mm film days, I covered a lot of events with a fast slightly wide-angle lens (35mm f/1.4) and a fast slightly telephoto lens (85mm f/1.8). I have attempted to duplicate that equipment with two Fujinon lenses (23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2).
