Funky Fujifilm Lenses

The ‘FUJINON XF 35mmF2 R WR’ offers a focal length equivalent to 53 millimeters* with an angle of view similar to that of the human eye and a maximum aperture of F2.0. It delivers sharp images with rich bokeh. The optical construction of 9 elements in 6 groups (including two aspherical elements) achieves the perfect balance of high image quality and compact size. The lens features the smallest diameter of the line-up and thanks to the inner focus system and stepping motor, it achieves an autofocus time of just 0.08 sec**.

The exterior of the lens is weather and dust-resistant and can work in temperatures as low as -10 degree Celsius.

This probably my most used lens of the bunch that I own, and at a great price.


The lens exterior uses all metal parts to ensure it is durable enough for a wide variety of shooting situations. The fine texture of the metal parts further enhance the shooting experience and ensure it can be operated easily and accurately with wet or gloved hands. The lens features a weather- and dust-resistant structure with eight seals on the lens barrel keeping the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors.

An inner focus system, which moves the small and lightweight lens elements, is combined with a stepping motor to produce quiet, accurate and fast autofocus – a must for all snap shooters that need to capture a spontaneous moment.


Fujinon XF23mmF2 R WR

My second favorite lens.


Advanced image quality – ten elements in six groups, including two aspherical elements for edge-to-edge sharpness

  • The angle of view: 63.4°.At just 180g, the XF23mmF2 R WR is compact, lightweight, and stylish for great operability

  • Weather and dust resistant, capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10 Degree. Maximum magnification: 0.13x

  • Fast and silent autofocus: when combined with the phase-detection AF system of FUJIFILM X-Pro2 or X-T2, the lens can focus in an astonishing .005 seconds


The XF23mmF2 R WR is a wide-angle lens with advanced image resolution, capable of drawing out the full performance of Fujifilm’s proprietary X-Trans CMOS sensor. It has a similar size and design flair to the existing XF35mmF2 R WR, to make up a stylish collection of compact lenses. The inner-focus AF system uses a stepping motor* to drive the focusing group of lens elements for silent and fast autofocus.


The metal exterior gives a sense of premium quality and robustness, and the aperture ring and focus ring have been designed for optimum operability. The lens is also weather and dust resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C, making it an ideal choice for outdoor photography.



The XF50mmF2 R WR is a mid-telephoto lens with a focal length equivalent to 76mm*1 that delivers the very best results from Fujifilm’s unique X-Trans CMOS sensor. Its compact and lightweight design features 9 elements in 7 groups, including one aspherical ED lens, and has an inner focusing system*2, driven by a stepping motor*3 for fast and silent autofocusing.


Metal parts are used extensively on the exterior for a stylish, robust design with a premium feel, while the aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use. The lens is also weather and dust resistant, and operates in temperatures as low as -10°C, making it ideal for shooting in a variety of conditions.

The XF50mmF2 R WR will add to Fujifilm’s lineup of compact, lightweight and stylish lenses.

A great little lens for walking the streets …
