Incredibly sharp and wonderful, focus speed is just annoying
on December 9, 2012
This lens is much like the other two Fuji primes, sharp, contrasty and wonderful. The focus speed, however, is abysmally slow. I have found myself focusing it manually until it is really close and then, and only then, initiating the autofocus. Otherwise you wait an interminable length of time for it to go from infinitely close to infinitely far away.
But for its intended use as a macro product where you are more likely to focus it by placement or fine movement, the autofocus is an afterthought. The beauty of the images overpowers any such criticism.
