A dandy little lens

Photo Bill, B&H Photo
6 days ago
  • Excerpt: This is a dandy little lens, sharp and contrasty--and, best of all, small. I'd like it perhaps a trifle wider, but the focal length is a good compromise for a lens ideally suited to everyday, walk-around use. And I like using the control wheel on my X Pro 1 to control the aperture--the wheel just falls naturally beneath my thumb. The wee size of this lens makes it easier for me to carry my camera all the time, with I like to do.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Travel
  • Cons: No Hood

Great Lens, Small Package

Mark, B&H Photo
6 days ago
  • Excerpt: Many of the reviews I read prior to purchasing this praised it for its sharpness and compactness. It focuses quickly and quietly on the X-E2 and makes this camera as compact as possible. While I would have liked it to be a faster (maybe f/2) lens the overall size makes up for it. While I have and always use hoods for now I am not going to worry about getting one for this lens.

Excellent prime lens for Fuji X-E2

News Strategies LLC, B&H Photo
6 days ago
  • Excerpt: While I've not done back flips about Fuji's 18-55mm zoom that's part of the X-E2 kit, the XF 27mm prime lens is sharp as a razor. Good all-purpose lens for the camera. I prefer it was my primary lens for the camera.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Sharp Image

Love this little gem

Ken Bennett, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is my seventh Fuji X series lens, and looking at the others that I own and shoot every day, it seems an improbable addition. After all, I have the 23/1.4 and the 35/1.4, so I seem to have the 27mm focal length covered, and if I need that exact framing I can pull out the 18-55 zoom. So why buy this lens?

Reminescence of my Rollei35s

Jay, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: After switching from Rollei35s to the X-E2 kit, XF-27mm was amongst my top choices for street and I was not dissappointed. Although it didn't look like much, the images produced was sharp & contrasty. It is fast enough at f/2.8 since Fuji X generally holds up pretty well at ISO3200. Any faster for the lens would mean heavier & chunckier gear. IMHO, brighter lenses doesn't necessary equate to better imagery & usability.

Lightweight lens

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens during big discount period to use with Fuji XT-1 and can't be happier. Fast, super light (less than 100grams) and sharp image result, made this lens to be my priority lens that I'd be using most of the time.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Extraordinary lens

Joe, B&H Photo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I am not usually attracted to pancake lenses. I am however very attracted to super sharp lenses. Fuji has put together a credible selection of pro glass for their semi pro X series of cameras. But this 27mm is in a class by itself. At f/5.6 it is a brilliant performer. From wide open to f8 it is simply so good that all I can say is buy it. It is a short normal as opposed to the 35mm f/1.4 which would be a more traditional focal length.

nice but autofocus too slow

affreujeff "affreujeff", Amazon
29 June 2014
  • Summary: Very small and light this lens is well built and is offering a nice sharpness even at full aperture, very good handling almost perfect for travellers and street photo but the autofocus is slow and too hesitant (tested on a xt-1) so finally it partially misses my targets.

Great Little Performer

Craigclu, Adorama
26 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I haven't used it as much as I expected but for times when compact easy-carry matters, it excels. I find it very sharp and solid performing. It compares favorably with my other optics for my XE-1.

Nice lens.

Travis, B&H Photo
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Compact and lightweight are the two key features of this lens. It is a nice little package when fitted on my X-E2.I was totally thrown when I saw the "Made In China" siginature on the lens. None of the other Fuji products I've seen are made in China so I thought it was maybe a one off thing (probably to help offset the fact that this lens is always on backorder and out of stock). Not really sure.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Slowish, Wish It Was A 1x
