Extraordinary lens

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Nice lens.

  • 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

One, which can stay on camera every day without losing the quality.

Nice walk-around lens

Yellowhorse, B&H Photo
4 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This lens is very compact and lightweight. It can be carried and used discretely, and will not unbalance lighter X series bodies such as the XE-1. I also use it with my XT-1 with battery grip, and they are great together. Not as fast as some other Fuji primes, but 2.8 isn't bad. This is the only XF lens I own that does not have an aperture ring, which takes a little getting used to.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: No aperture ring

Perfect walk around

  • Summary: This lens makes the X-E2 such a great walk around camera, and I can fit it in the cargo pocket of my shorts with this attached. Must have lens if you have a Fuji X-camera.

Incredible Little Lens!

MDB, B&H Photo
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: A must-have lens if you own a Fuji X camera. The field of view is perfect for everyday walk-around photography. This lens produces razor sharp images (cannot tell the difference in sharpness from Fuji 35mm f1.4 lens, which I also own), and the compact and lightweight characteristics of this lens will transform your Fuji X camera into the perfect travel set-up. I have nothing but praise for this little lens.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
