Hey everyone!

I'm about ready to take the plunge on the X-T1, but I'm a little green on the fujinon lenses. There's a huge sale over at B&H, Adorama and Amazon (US) that's ending on the 5th. Since the X-T1 is out of stock, which 2 to 3 lenses would you all recommend picking up?

I'm asking because I don't think I'll get the X-T1 before April 5th, and I should jump on the lenses now to take advantage of the deep discounts before they disappear.

These are the lenses that have the deep discounts:

XF 14mm: $200 off (price $700)
XF 18mm: $200 off (price $400)
XF 23mm: $150 off (price $750)
XF 27mm: $250 off (price $200)
XF 35mm: $150 off (price $450)
XF 60mm: $250 off (price $400)
XF 55-200: $200 off (price $500)

I hear the 60mm macro is pretty stellar and for $199 the 27mm seems like a no-brainer, right?

My favourite by far is the 35mm but it really depends on the type of photos you take.

If you shoot primes, 14, 23, 35mm are great!

It depends on what you want to shoot. I love the 35, 60, 14, and 55-200. The 23 is certainly a great lens but I haven't really gelled with it yet. The 27 is a great deal and works great but feels too small to me on the X-T1. If you have any need for telephoto, run don't walk to get the 55-200. The 35 is fantastic if you like the normal nifty fifty view. The 14 is just a stellar UWA. The 60 is razor sharp, very good for portraits and macro, and just seems a steal to me at the price.

I like number 3.... number 5 almost looks like HDR there's so much dynamic range in it.

Thanks! I'm still learning about the camera and how to set it for jpgs. I find that my images are definitely cool regarding WB. I'm also struggling a bit with wide dynamic range compared to my Sony A7r. Fuji gives a different look for sure . . . most if it I really like. I need to play more with raw. I have both Photo Ninja and Iridient Developer but I wish I could import into LR first but there's no support yet.

Nice one John!

I decided to try using Capture One since they just came out with X-T1 support. I pretty much just chose 'Auto' for any setting that had it, exported to tiff, imported to LR, straightened perspective and gave it some sharpening. I like how Capture One renders the image.

There are some talented people here! Great work everyone.
After a complete wipe of my hard drive, I meanwhile am trying to get my export for FM correct. I will give this a shot with a few heavy crops from this morning using the X-T1 and the 55-200 and one of a watery grave before the Masters!
Thank you for your patience!

Hi Ian! I have a 35mm cron-R which I could adapt to x-mount, but I don't like the extra weight and need for an adapter if I can avoid it. Is there anything in particular about the 35mm that you really enjoy? Is it the rendering, subject isolation, build quality, etc.?

Also, is it relatively easy to manual focus? (I <3 MF lenses!)

rji2goleez, I've been hearing nothing but love for for the 14mm. Is this the defacto (U)WA for the xmount or is there an alternative (like a samyang or another) within the same league but cheaper? If at all.

I have a makro-planar in canon mount, but the 60mm has my interest. I've read that people go with the 60mm instead of the new 56mm. Is the 60mm a 1:2 macro? I do love going to zoos and taking photos of the (lazy) animals and the 55-200mm might fit the bill. Is it relatively large and heavy (for a zoom) compared to the other primes? How's the handling, build and manual focusing feel? Sorry for all these questions!

Thank you guys for replying to me. I really appreciate it!

Honestly, I'm very new to Fuji. I've only had my X-T1 for a couple of weeks and I have not tried any adapted lenses or third party lenses. But the Fuji lenses are very very satisfying to me. I've adapted many lenses for the Sony A7r but I'm really enjoying the AF of the X-T1. The primes are wonderful. I hear the 10-24mm zoom is supposed to be excellent too.
