A subjective look at Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F/1.4 R @ Fujifilm X-Pro1. Part 3 — Summary

I can safely say that Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F/1.4 R is a magnificent fast standard prime lens. Its shortcomings — strong longitudinal chromatic aberrations, strong vignetting wide open — are typical for almost every lens of such class. On the other side, outstanding sharpness across the frame with closing of the aperture by several stops, excellent microcontrast, insignificant lateral chromatic aberrations and in general very good bokeh quality are the main advantages of the lens.

The lens is not especially useful for architecture, interiors and landscapes due to its insufficient field of view in some situations. Also you won’t always have an opportunity to move back at sufficient distance in order to cover the entire subject. As for the lens speed, even 1.4 does not guarantee an excellent image quality when shooting interiors without tripod.

However I can easily recommend Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F/1.4 R for the purchase also for its best price/quality ratio in the lineup of Fujifilm lenses.
