That last shot you posted really shows the extent that they have gone to redesign the lens for X mount. Gotta imagine this is going to be well received particularly by street shooters. Looks like an OEM lens control wise on that XT4.

I gotta say, I'm pretty encouraged by what I've seen so far on this lens - I'll probably wait for the new XF 33 to hit the streets before pulling the trigger though.

Edit: Sorry the XF 33 f/1.0 AF was replaced by the XF 50 f/1.0 AF lens because they felt the 33 f/1.0 AF would be too big to meet their IQ/AF requirements. Here' the 50.

This CV lens is more targeted to people who want a fast, small manual focus serious retro lens with likely a fair bit of character.

I was referring to the rumored XF 33 1.4 supposedly due some time this year... Who knows though? It could prove as real as the XF 33 1.0 ;-) https://www.fujirumors.com/breaking-fujinon-xf33mmf1-4-r-wr-coming-2021/

Oh I forgot about that one I thought you meant this one I think the f/1.0 made more sense as a 50mm.

Well they changed the focal length to 53mm and shortened the MFD a bit as well as shrinking it down to APSC size but if it retains the qualities of the one Fred tested a while back it should be a nice different lens in the X mount lineup. The straight aperture blades and sunstars from F/2 on as well as the really clean out of focus highlights should be nice. I remember liking this when it was reviewed here a while back. Hope they do a 28 too. I've been wanting a lens like this in X mount for a long time, even looked into converted an E briefly.

It certainly would, miss the point of it entirely. Like saying a Ferrari would be good if it was a Chevrolet. Plenty of AF options already.

I have used this lens quite a bit since November 2021. I think this lens is quite niche - it is a like a 50/1.8 FF-equivalent vintage lens for Fuji X-series cameras due to the lack of aspherical element, and I have argued that Voigtlander should have used a "Classic" moniker to indicate such. The 8/6 optics (including one ED element) are extremely similar to Voigtlander's own 35/1.4 Nokton Classic VM I or II, which in turn paid tribute to Leica's famous "8-element" Summicron 35/2 ("Type 1", 1958). I think if you also have a Leica M or a FF mirrorless, in general you probably would be better off with the Nokton Classic 35/1.4 VM, because you can use it on both FF and ASP-C bodies. However, there are a few reasons to choose the Nokton 35/1.2 X-mount: (1) half of a stop faster, (2) shorter MFD (0.3 m vs 0.7 m), (3) slightly better form factor due to no adapter, and (4) electronic contact for EXIF and automatic 100% magnification when focusing.

With all above in mind, you will understand why it is soft wide open by today's standard, offers a vintage bokeh rendering and interesting flaring, but doesn't glow as much as many other vintages. I have a flickr album for this lens if you are interested.

Would like to post a few from my album. Wide open = busy yet painterly bokeh when lights are right.

I also really like the flaring, especially when you can trigger the double rings - one in blue and one in rainbow.

At portrait distance shot wide open, it is cleaner (glows less) than many vintage lenses but bokeh is similar. Softer and glows more than modern aspherical lenses for sure.

Stopping it down to f/2 and further, the rendering starts to resemble modern lenses, with increased sharpness and reduced glow, and pretty smooth bokeh. These are f/2 shots.

A few shots at f/2.8 or f/4 - now very clean and edges are not bad at all.

As expected, the double Gaussian design produces very nice sharpness corner to corner at f/5.6 through f/11. I happen to have the Nokton 40/1.2 VM that I can compare to. At these apertures, I would say VM is slightly sharper everywhere on my X-T3, but not by much.

Thanks for sharing these Sander! Do you notice any barrel distortion when shooting photos with strong horizontal lines (e.g. buildings).

Distortion seems very well controlled. I didn't find a case where I need to apply correction in LR.
