    Cons: soft and low contrast slow focusing noisy focus motor expensive

    Pros: small and light

    Summary: It\'s a small light lens, which sits well on small Fuji bodies. Lens is soft wide open even at the center. It gets increasingly softer as you move toward the edges. The contrast is low even when stopped down. The lens is slow focusing and noisy. The lens doesn\'t have a lock in A position, which often leads to aperture ring being bumped into a random position (often f/16). I compared it to close equivalents, like Sony 50/1.8 and Canon 50/1.8. Both lenses fared better in image quality despite the fact they are significantly cheaper.

    Cons: This is now a fairly old lens. Autofocus is still good, but while more than fast enough for most things it is not super-fast and nor is it quiet. Performance optically is somewhere between very good and excellent, but I suspect the new f2 may have the edge based on the charts displayed here. As a matter of preference I should state I bought a 27mm not very long ago and I much prefer it’s field of view. The 35 is gathering dust in a drawer.

    Pros: Small. Neat. Very accurate autofocus. Light for a such a fast lens. Half decent lenshood. Image quality hard to fault, but if it sounds as though I am damning it with faint praise, I suppose I am: the lens is workman-like, reliable and very good but not great.

    Summary: If I were in the market for a 35mm lens now I’d be tempted by Fuji’s new f2 model.

    Cons: Maybe slower AF sometimes?

    Pros: Aperture ring, very well built. Sharp even wide open, nice bokeh.. The lens is extremely lightweight! More then 2.5 times when comparing e.g. to its sigma 30/1.4 equivalent (similar crop factor)! I was thrilled to use it on fuji x-m1. That tiny combo gives extraordinary results even with iso 3200 which many advanced photographers compare to full frame best systems (weighting and costing 3x times more).

    Summary: Photos taken with this lens on fuji chips are somehow magical to me. Try it and love it. I would compare it e.g. to sigma 18-35/1.8 but which weights unfortunately 5 times more.

    Cons: - Slow AF, especially on the older bodies (xpro here) and/or compared to the newer Fuji lenses like the 23mm - Quite susceptible to diffraction (not so usable at f11 or more) which is not ideal for deep landscape shots - The lens moves when focusing

    Pros: - Wonderful image quality in the frame center and very good on the edges. - Nice looking Bokeh - Discreet and light - The lens hood is quite discreet also - Very small distortion and quite flare resistant

    Summary: Despite its slow AF, I still love this lens. I traveled with just this one and rarely felt the need for another. Plus, now you can get them for "cheap" on the second hand market.
