Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“With, or without, the rectangular hood attached, this lens is pretty resistant to flare, even in harsh backlit situations. Contrast levels remain good when shooting into the light also.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Photozone reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“The quality is fine from f/2.8 and great across the image field between f/5.6 and f/11. The lens produces a bit of vignetting at max. aperture but it’s not really an issue beyond. Lateral CAs and distortions are nothing to worry about. The quality of the bokeh (out-of-focus blur) is generally fine”
Rating: ★★★★☆

SLRGear reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“There’s not much more to say that the test results don’t already show: very good performance, even when used wide open, and excellent performance when stopped down just a little. If you’re an X-Pro 1 user, this lens definitely deserves a place in your bag.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Photoreview reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“Autofocusing was fast and accurate, even in very low light levels. The camera/lens combination locked onto subjects quickly for our long exposure tests after dark and never hunted for focus, regardless of the ISO setting or exposure time selected.”

ishootshows reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“If you’re going to buy a single lens or starting lens for the Fuji X-Pro1, make it the Fujinon 35mm f/1.4. Yes, this lens is just that good. Between it’s low light abilities, superlative optical performance, close-focusing, and small size, it’s literally a do-it-all kind of lens if the focal length fits your shooting.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Kenrockwell reviews the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 XF R Lens and writes;
“The Fuji XF 35mm f/1.4 ASPH is among the best lenses I’ve ever tested, excelling at both the technical aspects of sharpness, falloff and distortion, as well as the artistic aspects of ergonomics and bokeh.”
