Excerpt: I hesitated between this and the XF27mm as I wanted something small and discreet. As my intended use was all-purpose travel, I decided to go wider and get the extra f/stop for the increased possibilities of handheld photography in low light.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Focuses Closely, Lightweight
Summary: I like the field of view for this lens as it's a 27mm full frame equivalent. Not too wide or too narrow; just right. Of course it's a "move my feet to zoom" lens which is also enjoyable. Focus is quite good in all lighting conditions. It's a small lens and fits in my pocket when mounted on camera.
Excerpt: Love this weight to performance. Light, small (pancake) keeps pkg with my X-T1 compact. 2.8 is fast enough and picture quality is on par with any well made lens of which I have also in 35mm and Medium format. It's operation and build are very good. Really like this lens.
Excerpt: I love this lens. Since I bought the Xe2, I've had experience using several lenses on it (18-55mm, 55-200mm, 27mm and a bunch of lenses from other companies including the voigtlander 15mm). I'm sure that for pro work the 14mm and 23mm are unbeatable.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Small, Strong Construction
Great lens, good compromise of low light use ability and compact-ness.

Summary: Very compact foot print, though it does not make my Fuji XA-1 pocketable, but definitely more portable than most fuji lens, except perhaps the f2.8 pancake. However, this is a much brighter lens than the pancake and just a little thicker.
