Fujifilm X-Pro2 + XF 35mm f/2 Aperture Series: Ranch Barn, Sunlit

Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR

Get Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 and Fujifilm XF lens B&H Photo.

Note: the XF 56mm f/1.2 APD has gorgeous rendering and it is $400 off thru Apr 2. Or, see all Fujifilm X lenses with rebates.

The Fujifilm XF 35mm f/2 R WR is a recently-released lens. I liked it a lot in the field, and I’d highly recommend it for being so compact and travel/carry friendly. Available in black or silver, the about $399 price is easier on the wallet compared to its about $499 (after rebate) 35/1.4 sibling, but the decision may come down to just how compact the lens is—I just found myself liking that out in the field. Still, the extra stop of f/1.4 is a plus, so it’s a tough call.

A 24-megapixel APS-C sensor is extremely demanding of lens performance, being equivalent to a 56-megapixel sensor in full frame terms (pixel density).

Images at sizes up to 24 megapixels (full-res) along one large crop, all from f/1.4 through f/9.

This series shows just how much stopping down is necessary for peak sharpness.
