Description

Because of the all plastic build, the XC35mm f/2 is actually a lot lighter than its XF 35mm f/2R counterpart, even though they’re almost exactly the same size. I find it very hard to argue with the price and image quality of the Fujifilm XC 35mm f/2. I highly recommend it for any lower-budget photographer using Fujifilm gear.

There are no color fringes as shot on Fujifilm's cameras, which by default correct for any that may be there. It's a good choice for everyday photography—if you're old enough, you may remember a 50mm being your lens for a film SLR. If you're a youngster, its angle of view is like the 2x lens on a smartphone. Fujifilm X-T200, f/2.5, 1/4,000-second, ISO 200 If this 1,200×900 pixel crop is about 3" (7.5cm) wide on your phone, then the complete image printed at this same extreme magnification would be about 11 × 16" (0.9 × 1.3 feet or 25 × 40 cm).

But is the XC35mm f/2 really a completely different character than is premium quality XF lens sibling, the XF35mm f/2R? Well upon further inspection. Not really that much! Build and feel Sure lens construction metal of plastic doesn’t add nor detract from the image quality but there’s something undeniably attractive about them.

It is placed below the XC 35mm f/2 on the Fujifilm lens lineup. Its optical design is identical to that lens, the difference lies in the better construction and weather-sealing of the XF version.

I hope you liked this Fuji 35mm f2 review. While not a true 35mm (it’s effectively a 53mm)The Fuji 35mm f2 is a great compact sized, fixed lens that has everything going for it: A great focal length that is great for portraits and street among other things, a very attractive price and is rangefinder sized with a fast f2 lens. The XC35mm f/2 is not weather resistant. So don’t expect it to make through a torrential downpour! Some light danish drizzle(read: heavy ass dark winter downpour) didn’t do anything bad to it over the course of the last month, so it does withstand a little something. But it is not classified weather resistant. So cover it with your hands out in the rain. X-Pro3 | XC35mm f/2 @f/2 I use a clear (UV) protective filter instead of a cap so I'm always ready to shoot instantly. I only use a cap when I throw this in a bag with other gear without padding — which is never. The UV filter never gets in the way, and never gets lost, either.

Because X cameras are all APSC sensors the 35mm has an effective focal length of 52.5mm, so this is essentially a nifty fifty f2. By default then it’s great for portraits and all around shooting, and the Bokeh at this focal length at the maximum aperture of f2 is really nice. Fuji 35mm f2 review sample image This lens requires a Fujifilm X-series camera – anything from the inexpensive X-A7 and X-T200 to the prosumer X-T4 will work, though it’s designed for the former models. Key Features Being a 50mm-ish the lens is extremely versatile and is great for portraits, street or general usage. You really can’t go wrong with a 50mm if you ask me! Sure there are other more portrait focused lenses out there… but the combination of affordability, portability makes this lens a good choice especially for a first X series lens. Let’s move on our Fuji 23mm f2 review with specific scenarios. Fuji 35mm f2 portraits The Fujifilm XC 35mm F2 is a new, affordable compact standard prime lens for Fujifilm’s X-series mirrorless camera range.

Thanks to the IF mechanism the front of the lens does not rotate on focus, which is very good news for anyone looking to use the lens in conjunction with a polariser or graduated neutral density filter. It's softer in the corners at very close distances, and has lower contrast in the center wide-open due to spherical aberration. Stop down at macro distances if you're shooting test charts in a lab. This is where the difference between the XC and XF versions is most apparent. Whereas the XF lens is built of metal, weather-sealed, and has an aperture ring, the XC version closely resembles the nifty fifties. It’s cheap and plastic. The image quality of the XC 35mm f/2 is actually really good, thanks to it inheriting the optical design of a higher-priced lens.

Alright, enough with all the mumbo-jumbo! What does the IQ look like? Well I’m glad you asked that question, cause I’m here to give you tell you that it’s actually…. quite good! We were only about to try a pre-production sample of this lens, so the final performance may change. Even so, we found it focused very well and the images we captured look sharp and distortion free, and as good as the specifications and shared optical design with the XF35mm F2 would lead us to expect.

The Fuji X System

The same concept carries over to the X system, a camera line with style and handling inspired by the X100, but with swappable glass. It launched in early 2012 with the X-Pro1 and a handful of prime lenses. Fujifilm X-T4 with XF 16-80mm
