Fuji 35mm X lens as sharp (or even sharper) than the super expensive Leica 35mm lens!

Share

Ken Rockwell (Click here) is currently testing the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 X lens. His test isn’t finished yet but he already writes: “This is as sharp, maybe sharper than the equivalent┬áLEICA 50mm f/1.4 ASPH, and has the same superb bokeh, focuses faster and closer and has the same near zero distortion. Not bad for $600!” Yep, the Leica Summilux costs $5,000 on eBay (Click here)!!!

Exciting! Ken also writes that he would loved to see a Full Frame sensor instead of the APS-C. But I guess this would have made the camera terrible expensive. Anyway, maybe Fuji will launch a second FF camera at Photokina? Would put a huge pressure on Leica!
