  • Summary: The XF 14mm F2.8 R is a solid, well-made lens that sports traditional aperture and manual focus rings. It's not bad at F2.8 and offers excellent image quality stopped down, where superb cross-frame sharpness and minimal distortion make it ideal for architectural and landscape work.
  • Pros: Extremely sharp across the frame at normal working apertures (F5.6 - F11), Minimal distortion, Minimal chromatic aberration, Well-implemented manual focusing, Quiet autofocus, Solid construction
  • Cons: Soft corners at F2.8, Moderately strong vignetting at F2.8 (corrected by camera's JPEG processing), Loose click-stops on aperture ring, No way of combining manual focus and autofocus, Slowish autofocus, Expensive

Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R

LensTip.com
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Currently (October 2013) the Fujinon XF 14 mm f/2.8 R is a lens with the widest angle of view in the whole Fujifilm line-up, giving a field of view on a level of 90 degrees. Although the X system is relatively young our choice of lenses is quite rich, mainly because of the support from devices produced by independent companies. Owners of mirrorless Fujifilm cameras can use the Zeiss Tout 2.8/12 or the Samyang 2.0/16.

Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R (Fujifilm) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
14 March 2013
  • Conclusion: The Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R is a highly attractive ultra-wide lens with few shortcomings. The most important factor for an ultra-wide lens is certainly image sharpness and the Fujinon delivers here. It is bitingly sharp in the image center and good to very good in the outer image region. The very low CAs contribute to the high quality perception.

  • Excerpt: The Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R exhibits just a little barrel distortion, as you can see in the photo above, but it's a lot better than you would expect from a 21mm lens.

  • Summary: Można dyskutować, czy duże winietowanie uznać za wpadkę. Moim zdaniem nie można. Wada ta byłaby pewnie mniejsza, ale wiązałoby to się ze znacznym powiększeniem gabarytów testowanego obiektywu. Duże gabaryty obiektywów słabo komponują się z ideą poręcznych bezlusterkowców, więc taką cenę zawsze jestem gotów zapłacić, tym bardziej że oprogramowanie aparatu produkuje JPEG-i z ładnie skorygowaną tą wadą.
  • Pros: solidna i metalowa obudowa,, rewelacyjna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, świetnie korygowana aberracja chromatyczna (podłużna i poprzeczna),, niezauważalna aberracja sferyczna,, znikoma dystorsja,, bardzo mały astygmatyzm,, dobra praca pod ostre światło,, szybki, celny i cichy autofokus.
  • Cons: duże winietowanie.

  • Summary: FujiFilm er ferskinger i hybridsegmentet, men lanserer nye objektiver med høyere takt enn konkurrentene. Kvalitetsglass som denne ultraskarpe vidvinkelen, for eksempel.
