DPR Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 Review: Gold Award!


DPReview published their full field review of the brand new Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR lens.

It gets the Gold Award with a long list of Pros and a very short Cons list.

Fujifilm itself explained the lens itself is designed for higher resolutions than currently offered by Fujifilm, and the Fujifilm X-H2 comes to mind here.

You can read more down below.

What we like What we don’t
  • Fills a gap in the F1.4 lineup for X-mount
  • Quite compact for a lens of its type
  • Solid build and weather-sealed
  • Swift, silent autofocus
  • Good sharpness, even wide-open in the corners
  • Minimal chromatic aberrations
  • Most potential optical defects are well controlled
  • Nice sunstars when stopped down
  • Short focus throw in linear mode makes precise focus pulls difficult
  • A bit prone to flare and ghosting
