After being a X-series shooter for almost 4 years, I feel like I can finally come up with a list of my 3 favourite lenses. The trio that is in heavy rotation are XF35mm f/2, XF56mm f/1.2, and XF14mm f/2.8.
This lens now occupies the number one spot on my wishlist, and hopefully it would occupy a spot in my bag the next time I go on a trip. Thanks for stopping by! I wish everyone a great year full of Kodak moments, or rather Fujifilm moments in 2016!
This lens has retro good looks and feels incredibly solid and well made, at the same time, it is very compact and lightweight. By pairing it up with the X-T1, it gives me a weather resistant kit that is ready for anything.
I posted my initial impression of the XF 14mm a while back, since then I've had the chance to pair this lens with the X-T1 and really put it to test, and now I firmly believe that I have made the right choice despite all the rave reviews the new XF 16mm has been getting.
I put the 14mm on my X-T1 and went for a walk around Toronto's financial district, and I came away impressed with the image quality and the AF speed. There's no drop off in sharpness from corner to corner.
This is the ideal camera to carry with you at all times, and it is excellent for street photography and candid work. You can easily stay in stealth mode and just snap away, thanks to the silent leaf shutter.
