XF35mmF2 Review
USA: AmazonUS / BHphoto / Adorama / EU: AmazonDE / PCHstore / AmazonUK / AmazonITA /

Admiringhlight posted its full XF35mmF2 review. From the conclusions:

The 35mm f/2 R WR is a very good lens. It doesn’t quite measure up to Fuji’s top optics such as the 90mm f/2, 16mm f/1.4 or 14mm f/2.8, but it does a nice job balancing small size with very good performance.  It’s sharp across almost the whole frame right from f/2, has very pleasing bokeh, good chromatic aberration control, a very fast and dead silent focus motor and has the added benefit of weather sealing as well.

On the down side, the high native distortion requires digital correction that by default is actually too strong, resulting in some pincushion distortion in the JPEGs and RAWs for converters that support the correction metadata.  This leads to some loss of resolution in the corners, preventing truly tack sharp images across the entire frame.

    Does anyone know how this will work with Fuji’s sensor?

    • umad?!

      V8 was really great. Both, the demosaicing as well as the sharpening were working fine. (Furthermore both clarity and structure are great tools in C1 [the Lightroom implementation of clarity sucks IMO)

      There are some limitations like auto edge detection when doing a selection, but I’d say C1 is probably the sweetspot between LR (catalog and file managment) and all the others (PhotoNinja, Iridient, RawTherapee), which do great with one or two things (for example sharpening).

  • Jano

    Something tells me the 35 f1.4 they used was misaligned/broken. Compare the results of their comparison with the results from Fuji-vs-Fuji (who – on the other hand – got distortion all wrong and gives contradicting statements on AF performance).
