The Fuji 35/1.4 lens. The perfect lens from Fuji. It makes beautiful pictures. If you get one lens, this is it. Must have. Just go out, get one and start taking pictures.

Pros: Low light, beautiful bokeh, sharp, sharp, sharp lens wide open, perfect angle for just about everything..., right size and weight to walk around on your camera on a daily basis. The perfect lens.

Cons: Little to none

Shipping was great. Outstanding lens. There is just something special about the pictures taken with it...especially at 1.4. Love it. A+

Sharp and nice bokeh

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lens is very sharp even at 1.4. Has really nice shallow depth of field, similar to using a 50mm f2ish lens on a full frame camera. Only thing i would change is the autofocus could be a little faster and quieter. Plus I prefer the aperture ring on the x100 which positively clicks into full stops. This has 1/3 stops which is nice but it's a little hard to feel exactly how far you are turning it.

Pros: Sharp, shallow depth of field, low distortion, reasonably priced given performance

Cons: Af and aperture ring

Fuji XF 35mm 1.4 Lens

Written By Henry, Mendon, NY on Saturday, May 04, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This lens equates to a 50mm for full frame images. Lens is wildly sharp and has a very beautiful bouquet for out of focus background. Super nice hood and cap and great controls. So user friendly and the image results jump off the screen. I use a Nikon D800e and this lens and camera are a super fit in my camera case.

Pros: Sharp images, beautiful bouquet, fast focus, great controls, solidly made, hood and cap are a beautiful finishing touch.

Cons: None .....

Excellent lens

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R

Written By Anonymous, New York, NY on Saturday, May 12, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you've read all of the reviews, you know what the general consensus is. This lens is darn sharp, though the AF is a tad slow, and the fly-by-wire manual focus/aperture ring isn't the easiest thing to get used to (if you've come from a DSLR, that is). Speaking of the aperture ring, the "notches" for each stop and 1/3 stop feel a little too slick, so it's easy to slide it out of aperture if you're not paying attention. If you do everything right though, and you get over the minor quibbles I just listed, it's quite the lens.

Pros: Sharp, smooth, MF ring can be good for macro, if that's your thing.

Cons: Aperture ring is too smooth, fly-by-wire system takes some getting used to, manual focusing takes forever if you're not shooting macro.

Product Research


Overview: The Fujinon XF35mmF1.4 R is a standard fixed focal length lens with a bright aperture of f/1.4. It has a Fujifilm X-mount, and is designed exclusively for Fujifilm X-mount cameras, such as the X-Pro1. Its 35mm focal length is equivalent to 53mm in 35mm photography, similar to that of the human eye. The XF35mmF1.4 R is ideal for portraits, landscapes, and general photography.

Note: The lens is not compatible with X-mount film cameras.

Optics: The XF35mmF1.4 R has 8 elements in 6 groups. It uses a glass molded aspheric lens at the 5th element for achieving beautiful out-of-focus bokeh, as well as excellent in-focus reproduction to create a natural sense of depth, according to the aperture setting.

Lens Hood: The XF35mmF1.4 R comes with a lens hood to reduce glare and to protect the front element. When attached, the lens hood adds almost 13/16" to the overall length of the lens. Because of its rectangular shape, the lens hood comes with a separate hood cap.
