    Cons: No aperture ring Rendering very neutral Slightly soft wide open

    Pros: Small and light Excellent sharpness from f/4 Great Match with the smaller Fujifilm bodies

    Summary: First of all, nobody pays retail for this lens, I guess. These lenses are usually offered for much more reasonable prices (imports from Asia). The 27/2.8 is a great little lens, especially when paired with the X-E2 or X-E3. Real life sharpness is excellent. My only complaint is that the rendering is slightly bland and neutral. All in all a great little lens.

    Cons: Not super fast (aperture wise), no aperture ring, AF is audible, unit focus means lens extends when focusing

    Pros: Very nice IQ, perfect size and weight, nice focal length (not a fan of the more common 35 mm)

    Summary: I love this lens for its tiny profile but big image quality. It pairs perfectly with smaller bodies and is great as a one-lens solution whenever I want to go small and light.

    Cons: slow, curvature, overpriced

    Pros: small, light

    Summary: It\'s small and light, the only pancake in Fuji lineup. Optically it\'s ok, reasonably sharp, though curvature is significant. It\'s a slow f/2.8 lens, not for indoors. It\'s also quite overpriced, but you can find a significantly cheaper grey market version.

    Cons: No hood, and it needs a hood. Bought a nice vented type from eBay for very little - much, much better than anything Fuji offers. Usual price from a dealer here in the UK is ludicrous - £380! Doesn’t focus very close, and AF accuracy close-up becomes somewhat unreliable, telling you you have a lock and later it turns out you didn’t. Some complain no aperture ring. Actually, I prefer it this way.

    Pros: Small. Light - 78 grams! Autofocus is fast, accurate and decisive. Decent build quality. Doesn’t feel cheaply made or in anyway compromised. Image quality is in no way inferior to my 35mm f1.4 or 60mm f2.4 macro, and this lens isn’t the inferior kit lens many took it for when it was first released; In fact, it is so good I’ve hardly used anything else for the past 6 months. Size DOES matter, and I like small......

    Summary: A well-kept secret. Much, much better than you’ve been led to believe.

    Cons: Does not focus as fast as late Fuji on lenses.

    Pros: Extremely sharp, lovely general purpose focal length, very compact and ideal for unobtrusive street photography.

    Summary: A gem of a little lens!

    Cons: A bit noisy in the AF department No aperture ring

    Pros: Really very sharp indeed Small and light

    Summary: A really great choice for making your Fuji pretty pocketable. Image performance is really great, very sharp in the middle at all apertures, edges are pretty good from f/4. I really like this focal length. I have always thought that 40-45 mm (35mm equiv.) was the correct “normal” focal length; 50mm was a bit long.
