Summary: This lens is optically sharp! My favorite lens on the XE1. The only complaint would be the slow/hunting autofocus at times, but since I manually focus most of my lenses this is not an issue for me.
Excerpt: Other reviews say the focus is slow, I agree. Either have very steady hands or a tripod! With that being said, the lens is very pleasing, both for up close shots (yes you are not getting "MACRO" as in perhaps Canon or Nikon Macro lenses, but it still does a decent job. It is also nice in portrait situations...
Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I read a great deal about how slow the lens focuses. While not a DSLR speed demon, it was quite fast. B&H's exemplary customer support and return policy gave me the confidence to purchase it but it is a keeper. Bitingly sharp from wide open til diffraction. 2.4 may not meet some folks narrow depth of field requirements but I found it sufficient for my needs YMMV on that. Highly recommended.
Summary: Purchased during the instant savings sale. Mainly use it for portraits. When it arrived. The first thing i did was pop it onto my X-Pro1. Boy was it slow to focus. Check the firmware and it showed it was outdated. So after i updated it, focused again and it was much improved. Only gripe i have with the lens is that its not a true 1:1 macro and the lens barrel protrudes out when focusing.
Excerpt: With the lens and my Fuji-X camera both updated with the latest firmware, the lens focuses much faster and more accurately for me. It is not the fastest focusing lens in the X line up but it now works just fine for my uses. The bokeh is nice and pleasing to the eye. While focusing the lens makes a little more noise than some of the other X lenses but it is not obnoxiously loud. Some of my high-end Nikon lenses make more noise. The macro is decent. Sharp lens.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Improved Firmware Update, Lightweight, Reliable
