    Cons: - Not made for close up, means soft/glowy wide open at minimum focus distance

    Pros: - Small, weather sealed - Excellent sharpness - Fast and reliable autofocus

    Summary: This is a great reliable lens and still one of my favorites. It has nothing special but it\'s sharp, fast, small and gives nice pictures. For those who complain about sharpness, it\'s just not made for close up. If you want good bokeh and better close up capabilities, buy the 23mm f/1,4 instead.

    Cons: Soft, and not just wide-open. Never really had the sharpness or bite of some of my other Fuji lenses - I much preferred the 27mm f2.8. This may have had something to do with the Fuji X-E3 I bought at the same time. Compared to the xe2, I found the results over-processed, over-sharpened and somewhat flat, and any resolution improvements marginal at best. The 27mm still produced better results on the xe3, but I returned both camera and lens, as I felt both were lacking. As far as the lens was concerned I may have bought a poor example, who knows? Very happy with xe2 and xt10.

    Pros: Affordable. Solid construction. Fast, quiet, accurate and decisive autofocus. Lenshood not as awful as some Fuji hoods. Small. Not heavy. Weather - sealed.

    Summary: Decent, but ordinary.

    Cons: Rather high vignetting and some softness at close distances when wide open.

    Pros: Lovely vivid colour definition with contrast that makes images really stand out. Very sharp and clear images at middle apertures and amazing flare resistance. Very fast and accurate autofocus on my X-T1 and significantly fast even in my old X-E1. Build quality is second to none and the aperture ring feels sturdy and secure.

    Summary: A wonderful mild wideangle / normal lens from Fuji.

    Cons: Slightly soft at f2 with objects close under 30cm but fixable in Raw treatment (capture 1) if you know how to level up clarity and sharpness

    Pros: -Super high sharpness between f5.6 and f8 perfect for street and landscape -Very good sharpness between f2 and f4 -High level of microntrast -Fast AF -Small and light

    Summary: It's my first prime in Fuji world and I am amazed, I never thought it will be that better than the xc 16-50 that came with the X-T10 which is already pretty good. I highly recommend it for landscapes, never had so much details with snow, microcontrast is high but you need to a software like Capture One to really show it. And talking about the X-T10 it matches perfectly its small size, better than bigger lenses. IQ is superb and the WR is an added value for X-T1/X-T2 and the future X-T20.
