Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR ePHOTOzine Review: “Outstanding Sharpness and Delightful Lens to Use”

TheĀ Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 keeps up its victory parade.

After getting the Gold Award by DPR, it is now also highly recommended by ePHOTOzine with a long list of virtues and just minor negatives (none of them has to do with image quality).

In fact, in their latest review they write:

The Resolution King Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 R LM WR in Stock at BHphoto and Amazon

The Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 recently got Gold Award.

It is optically close to perfect, with sharpness being definitely its super-power. In fact, Fujifilm itself said that with this lens they did focus on resolution to make it fit for “future higher resolution cameras” (aka Fujifilm X-H2).

I know, some might say that lenses are more than just sharpness. And I get the point. I mean, I totally love my XF35mmF1.4, which probably isn’t the sharpest Fujinon X mount lens out there, but has an overall vibe in the images that some describe as “magical”, and indeed, it took some of my favorite images ever.

But if what you need is the ultimate sharpness, then look no further, as the Fujinon XF18mmF1.4 might just be what you were looking for.

Hold on a second… there was one thing I wanted to say.

Oh, right, the lens itself is now in stock at BHphoto here and AmazonUS here. Still backordered at Adorama here and Focuscamera here.

Fujifilm Manager: XF18mmF1.4 Resolution Beast (Ready for Fujifilm X-H2?), Why No Focus Clutch, Better than XF16/1.4 and More

Fujifilm manager Ueno, who was in charge of the development of the brand new Fujinon XF18mm f/1.4 R LM WR, gave an interview in Japanese, where he talks about the development process of this lens, the difference from existing lenses, and how to use it properly.

Once again the challenge is represented by the automatic google translation tool on youtube. I went through this pain for you guys and you can find the summary down below.

I find it particularly interesting how the managers stressed the fact that one of the main goals of the XF18mmF1.4 focus was “resolution”, hinting that there would be higher megapixel cameras in future.

Now, FujiRumors told you exclusively that the Fujifilm X-H2 will come in 2022. I know, it’s only FujiRumors to tell you this, but it’s 100% accurate, trust me. Fujifilm itself has hinted several times that more megapixel will come in future, and may it have the 43 megapixel Sony sensor or something different, the Fujinon XF18mmf f/1.4 seems to be ready for that kind of resolution.

Another interesting aspect is why Fujifilm did not put the focus clutch on the XF18mm f/1.4 and what makes it better than the Fujinon XF16mmF1.4.

This and more you can find in the summary down below.
