We know almost everything about the Fuji X PRO 1 camera but we are still hungry of X lens reviews! Now the good guys from ePhotozine did the job for us:
1) Fujifilm Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R Lens Review (Click here to read it): “Optically this lens is capable of delivering superb clarity in the central portion of the frame when stopped down a little. It is a shame that sharpness levels drop off towards the edges of the frame, and doubly so that this optic suffers from noticeable chromatic fringing towards the edges of the frame. Even with this lens’ imperfections, it is a pleasure to use, so long as its weaknesses are taken into consideration.”
2) Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R Lens Review (Click here to read it): “With this lenses ability to deliver extremely sharp images, it should win many fans amongst users of this new camera system.”
3) Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens Review (Click here to read it): “Sharpness is excellent from corner to corner, CA is pretty much non-existent, and other optical problems like distortion and falloff are also very well controlled. Unfortunately those wishing to use this lens primarily for macro work may find the issue with internal reflections a little too frustrating. The price is about right for the excellent build quality and features, but this lens will really sell itself on its near-perfect optical performance.”
Overall it sounds like the 18mm lens is the only one not coming near to perfection. But Fuji already told us that another wide angle lens is in the works, the 14mm f/1.4. Let’s see if it can beat the 18mm quality…
