| p.2 #3 · New Fujifilm XF lens Rebates. Savings up to $250 |
That's good to hear that you think so Jordan, I like reading your reviews and I was thinking of getting that one.
I'm going to start building my Fuji lens collection in anticipation of the X-T1.
Of the ones that are on sale, how would you rank them?
There's really not a bad lens in the bunch to be honest. The 14mm, though, is near flawless. No distortion, razor sharp corner to corner, excellent color and contrast....it's the best wide angle I've ever used. The 23mm is probably next best....truly outstanding lens. The 60/2.4 is very good (though not the quickest to focus), and the 35/1.4, while a little soft on the edges wide open, is plenty sharp in the center and mid frame at f/1.4 and extremely sharp stopped down. I'm a big fan of the 55-200, which is excellent at all focal lengths and has very nice bokeh for a zoom lens (well, it's nice for any lens). The 27 is probably near the bottom, but only because it's rather unremarkable...it's got a moderate aperture, is plenty sharp, has merely OK bokeh, but it's super tiny.
If I had to put an 'optical ranking' together, I'd probably put them: 14, 23, 60, 35, 55-200, 27, 18...but these are degrees of good. Though I have minimal experience with the 18mm.
