Summary: Beautiful lens. The build is excellent and it's great to handle. The aperture ring on mine was not loose and snapped into place nicely. The focus ring was buttery smooth. Images were rich in color and contrast, and very sharp wide open.
Excerpt: Very sharp and well-built lens. Fantastic color reproduction and a great focal length as well. Really the only complaint would be the aperture ring which has a tendency to be easily changed on accident. Overall this is a fantastic lens!
Excerpt: I purchased this lens as my prime landscape lens for my XT1. Once you start using the mirrorless systems by fujifilm you will give up your DSLR The build quality is exceptional and a real value for the money. The ultimate proof is in the photos. Clear and sharp without distortion.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use this lens for all kinds of scenery. Urban and suburban and countryside. Since I make some money with my other Fuji equipment, this is my least used. But when I do use it, I am very happy with the results.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Great wide angle lens. Works well with my X1 Pro. Has fast auto focus, nice build quality, and creates really sharp images. I was thinking about waiting for the new 16 mm F1.4 but I prefer the wider view and lower price of the 14 mm.
Excerpt: This is a wonderful lens that I think gets overlooked sometimes in the Fuji lineup. Very small and compact considering the 2.8 speed; it fits in well aesthetically with the 35 1.4. Some of the other Fuji XF lenses stray a little too far from the "smaller is better" mantra, but not this one.
