My favourite by far is the 35mm but it really depends on the type of photos you take.
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!)
If you shoot primes, 14, 23, 35mm are great!
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.
Hey bcaslis! 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...Show more →
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!
