As long as you aren't looking for a miracle there, this should be your lens of choice over the 35mm F1.4 unless you truly require the extra stop of light - If you think you do, but you aren't sure, then you probably don't - for several reasons:
- It's cheaper. The 35MM F1.4 looks good at sale prices right now, but that's only because the F2 R WR is newer. The price will drop more. This is a small point, because nobody got into fuji to save money.
- It's weather resistant. I live in Seattle, and I want something I can take into inclement weather and not worry about. The 16mm and 18-135MM have both done well in this regard- I've taken both out in wet weather (and near waterfalls, etc) and I've had zero issues. This should be similar to the 16MM and superior to the 18-135MM in this regard. Fuji's WR system is very well proven at this point. They will never advertise it as waterproof, because no camera maker really does, but it's about as close as you can practically get at this point. I still wouldn't submerge it, that's just common sense, but there's no need to be afraid of weather.
- It SEEMS to focus closer. This may be perception, as according to specs, the F1.4 focuses 7 CM closer. That may be the case, but it seems like that rarely ever happened, even deliberately in macro mode (which is supposedly no longer needed with the X-T1). It's something I always thought was really irritating with the F1.4 - and a huge point in favor for this, as there were plenty of times I couldn't focus anywhere near as close as I wanted to with the F1.4. This may not match technical specs, it may have even been a glitch with my F1.4. This is 100% subjective, and is mostly a matter of my own perception.
- It focuses much, much faster, but more importantly, there is no focus hunt on this - It just locks focus immediately, with misses being VERY rare, and usually due to operator error or limits of the camera. The overall focus performance as fast as you can reasonably expect for a lens in this era, and leaves the old 1.4 in the dust.
Does it completely replace the F1.4? For most people, I'd guess yes. There's a certain mindset that you must have the largest aperture possible for a focal length, and there are others that will gripe that this is really a F3 equivalent - These are largely irrelevant issues, and the type that typically comes with or leads to bad cases of "gear acquisition syndrome." It is true that this doesn't let in as much light. That can affect you when you are shooting in poor lighting at low ISO. Those are also the same cases that really require someone to operate slow, and focus manually, and really take their time with a shot. If you are the sort of photographer that works very slowly and deliberately, and you already have the 35MM F1.4, the only reason to get this lens would be if you are running into close focusing issues, or if you are concerned about weather resistance. For most people, the F2 will result in sharper images (due to the increased depth of field more so than the lens), and better overall usability - There's a chance that action shots will be blurrier or that you will blur a bit more due to hand shake at slower speeds, but that's largely offset by the difficulty of getting in-focus shots at F1.4.
I'm not going to get into some of the pixel-peeping details regarding sharpness, etc - there are other resources that can do that better than I can. I'm quite happy with that so far, but it's also really unsurprising as every single Fuji lens is optically excellent. If your images aren't sharp, the first place to look is at your technique. Chasing sharpness via lenses reaches diminishing returns very quickly, and it's easy to start valuing lenses based on some technical quality that's only really observable in controlled conditions. I speak from experience, as I have gone down that route in the past. Don't get either lens over the other based on technical tests. Make the choice based on how you use it. For most people, that choice should be this lens.
Finally, if you've always liked the X100 series, but felt that it was too wide and deserved a 35MM equivalent, this lens will put you closer to that than anything else in terms of focus performance, handling, and overall quality. It's still nowhere near the same in terms of close-focus and overall size - The overall package will still be twice as long. So again, don't expect miracles there.
This lens is an excellent performer, and should be part of every Fuji X shooters kit. For someone new to the Fuji X system, this should be the first lens you purchase. For those of us who have been using the system for a while, if you've found yourself frustrated with some of the limitations of the F1.4 in terms of handling and focus performance, then I'd highly recommend you give this lens a try. It has replaced the F1.4 in every way for me. On the other hand, if you have been perfectly happy with the F1.4, the only reason to look at this would be for weather resistance - and only after being very honest with yourself as to if you need it. Both lenses are excellent choices, and every Fuji X photographer should have one of them. Note that I said one - I can't think of any valid reason to have both. If you have some VERY specific use cases, perhaps you do, but you'd already know if you needed both in that case. If you are wondering if you need both and truly aren't sure, then the answer is no.
Well, a few months ago I purchased the venerable 56mm f1.2. While this lens produces amazing images, I'm not a big fan of it's AF performance. My primary subjects are my family (i.e. kids), and the 56mm's AF leaves room for improvement. Based on many of the reviews I've read of the 35mm F1.4, the primary shortcoming is it's AF performance, which sounds very similar to the 56mm. I.E., sometimes it hunts, and even when it's working right, it doesn't lock particularly fast in comparison to some of the newer XF lenses. This seems to be indicative of many of the early XF glass.
My current primary lens is the 23mm XF f1.4. The focal length is absolutely perfect (35mm full frame equivalent) for most of the shooting I do. However, I've always yearned for something a little longer to get some more intimate shots. That's why I had initially bought the 56mm, but quickly found out that A. 56mm is a little too long for indoor use, and B. the 56mm AF can be difficult to work with indoors due to low lighting.
In comes this little beauty. It was never on my radar until I recently stumbled across an updated XF roadmap chart.
First impressions upon getting it out of the box.
1. IT'S FREAKING TINY! in the best possible way. My body is an X-T1, and the body absolutely dwarfs the lens. I never thought my 23mm was all that hefty, but the 35mm F2 is easily half the overall mass. It's actually quite adorable. The smallest non-pancake lens I've ever owned was Canon's nifty-fifty (50mm f1.8). This is noticeably smaller ( but of course, much more substantial since it's metal)
2. Build is typical Fujinon excellence. Solid metal body with typical fuji aperture markings.
3. Aperture ring feels absolutely spot on. A lot of the early lenses (like the 56mm) have aperture rings that feel way too loose. 23mm is an improvement, but the 35mm F2 feels even better. Right amount of resistance with very clear incremental clicks for every f stop. I owned the 16-55mm F2.8 for a brief time, and it feels similar to that. Seems like this is the new standard for the newer lenses, which is a great thing because it feels so much better than the earlier ones.
4.The hood is barely a hood. It's so small that I'm willing to bet it doesn't actually function as anything but a guard against drops. It's different from the other stock XF hoods because it attaches via screw thread, vs the usual half-turn-and-click method. For what it's worth, it still looks like it has the half-turn-and-click style hood mounts on the outer ring.
5. The focus ring feels good too. Just the right amount of resistance, which is especially important on this lens due to its tiny size (if it spun too loosely, it would be way to easy to miss your MF target). It is a little thin obviously, since the lens is so small, but I noticed the "stepped" design of the lens actually helps you feel the position of the focus ring better. IE, it's extremely easy to locate and grab by feel.
Other then that, there's nothing else that's worth noting about it's physical appearance and handling. It's obviously weather sealed, so it has the rubber gasket around the lens mount. Took forever, but I finally have a weather sealed lens on my weather sealed body.
******************** Performance ************************
I've only had this for several hours, so I'll be sure to take out during the day and take some shots, but I will say this. I already know this lens is a keeper. Just playing with it indoors shooting handheld at f2 1/20 - 1/170 shutter speeds and ISO 800-2000, it's so obvious that the images it produces are at the very least, the same level as the 23mm and the 56mm, both of which cost more than double. It is absolutely tack sharp wide open.
AF, even indoors at night, feels similar to my 23mm (which generally has fast AF within the XF line). Considering the tiny size of the lens, I'd be surprised if the 35mm F2 ISN'T one of the fastest focusing XF lenses available.
I will update this review with some more real world shots, but I expect that the lens will perform admirably. Honestly, I can't get over how small the dang thing is. I ditched using zoom lenses when I traded my Canon gear for Fuiji 1.5 years ago. I absolutely fell in love with the 23mm XF, but the 35mm F2 offers a very usable focal length for various situations, and is fast enough to use indoors.
The fact that it's not as fast as the 23mm or 56mm doesn't bother me. I know this is personal preference to some, but as I mature in photography, the more I realize bokeh is overused. Not to say it doesn't produce the signature creamy Fuji bokeh, it does, plenty of it. I feel like F2 will keep me more honest in the sense that I won't be tempted to crank it down to f1.4-f1.2, and I'm pretty certain I'll have more keeper shots because of it.
For the street/journalistic style photographer (which I lean more towards), this lens is an absolute marriage for the X-T1. The whole package is so small. I'd actually argue that this is a far better choice than the 27mm pancake. It's a little faster, IQ is better, small and light, and weather sealed. The only reason I can think of to go with the 27mm is if you really really need the extra 9mm of view. Also, regarding the 35mm f1.4, my vote goes to this lens (obviously, I chose it over the f1.4). AF is spot on, same focal length, cheaper, and weather sealed. Granted, you lose a stop, but the benefits outweigh 1 stop of light for me.
I can't believe this thing is $399. Seems like Fuji would be shooting themselves in the foot by pricing such an excellent (and pro-level) lens at such a reasonable price point.
I like to get close, so the minimum focal distance is a bit long for me at over 30 cm.
Silver version looks great on the black X-Pro2! The autofocus is basically silent and the lens is very solid. Resistance on the aperture ring is just right. Because the focus ring is smaller, it's easy to tell where you're at. I also like the very small lens hood, which is designed to be left on, and keeps the lens cap from being knocked off.
