XF 27mm: technical test at dslrmagazine and some impressions at sgoldswoblog


1) dslrmagazin tested the XF 27mm lens here (tranlsation). The lens is not cheap, but has the right “balance between size, weight, performance… and it’s an XF

2) Some impressions and images can be checked out here at sgoldswoblog: “In the final analysis: the 35mm will give you sharper pictures and a wider aperture, but is larger and slower to focus; whereas the 18-55mm is sharper in the centre, but is larger and has a narrower maximum aperture at 27mm. However, I think there is a good place for this lens, even if you don’t plan to use it all the time. It’s sharp enough, small enough and fast enough to AF that I plan to have it with me when I’m carrying my X-Pro1. The only real downside for me is the price, which was £379 at launch. I don’t feel cheated but I think £300-350 would be fairer, given the limitations of the lens. Other than that, I’m very happy with the 27mm.”
