Fuji 18mm f2 lens
Been fancying a wide prime for a while and this one came up for a very reasonable price used.
The lens itself is up to Fuji’s normal standards, very well made. I was concerned, having read about issues with slow focusing, but these have in my opinion been greatly exagerated, the lens focuses quickly and accurately.
Spent a few hours doing a few real world test shots yesterday and found the lens can produce nice images, even at f2. I use lenses and am not really interested in technicalities of some reports. The lens, on my X Pro 1 , produced clean contrasty images at all apertures with the sharpest being between f4 and f8. I usually like f5.6 so that’s great.
Even with the camera/lens set in Macro mode the lens focused quickly and precisely, giving strong sharp images hand held. Macro, I found out, can only be use with the EVF and not the OVF, first time I had used the macro setting.
