Designed especially for the X-Pro1 and X-E1, the FUJINON XF Lens series promises enhanced resolution and light volume in image edge areas as well as reduced chromatic aberration for exceptional image quality. Featuring an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with a Super EBC coating. Holding the high-quality metal barrel and operating the precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring is a sensation that fires the desire to capture every scene. For photographers who seek the peak of photographic excellence, FUJIFILM raises the curtain on a new era of interchangeable lenses and unveils a premium lineup of 3 single-focal length lenses.

Boasting a compact design, this lightweight and versatile 18mm XF F2 lens (135 equivalent: 27mm) produces enhanced image resolution right to the image edge. Featuring an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with a Super EBC coating while the high-quality metal barrel and precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring gives versatile control. Excellent out-of-focus bokeh can be achieved thanks to the design of the moulded aperture diaphragm blades. The blades are curved to create a circular image at all aperture settings, while the very edges of each blade are meticulously rounded off rather than simply cut off, which delivers a sharper image. Specifically designed to maximise the mirrorless design of the body, the X Mount has a short flange back distance of just 17.7mm giving high resolution right across the image.

Of the three prime lenses launched with the X-Pro1 this is optically the weakest. As a travel lens however it is great. It's light, focusses quickly and, combined with the X-Pro1's excellent high ISO handling, can take photos in really low light.

I've knocked off one star as optically the 35mm and 60mm are noticeably better. If I could only take one lens on a city break though, it'd be this one.

I bought this lens to use on my XE1.

The lens is presented in a really nice box that makes the experience of the arrival and opening of the lens a real pleasure. The lens itself does not diminish this initial pleasure either; the lens is small, light weight and yet solid - it is one of the nicest lenses I have held; it is beautifully made.

I have read some reviews online about the horrible lens hood; however, I really like it - it is made of metal and locks in place tightly, I keep it on all the time and I use the supplied rubber cover, rather than the lens cap, to protect the lens when not in use.

The lens has the equivalent field of view of a 27mm lens and when set to, say f16 in manual focus and using the depth of field scale in the XE1 viewfinder, turns the XE1 into a good street camera because you don't need to focus to keep the subject in your set distance sharp. The small form of the lens helps in this regard too, it is neat, unobtrusive and light weight.

Some online reviews describe poor focusing speed and while the lens does not focus as snappily as my Nikon lenses on my D700, but it's not slow either; place your focus point where there is some contrast and it locks on without problems.

I am very happy with the results the lens produces, the bokeh is nothing to write home about, due to the focal length of the lens and the cropped sensor in the XE1, however the lens produces sharp results.

I also own the Fuji 35 1.4 and they pair up well, with the 18mm giving the wider field of view for when you can't move any further back to get the scene in.

Highly recommended.

I have the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 lens and in many forums people say that this lens is the least good X Series lens. It may not be *as good* as the excellent 35mm but it is very good and wide open is working well enough for me to not think about stopping down unless it's for artistic reasons. I have quite got to like the 28mm (in 35mm equiv) focal length and will keep it when Fuji brings out the long awaited 24mm f/1.4. Just to add, I am very fussy about lenses and this is my backup to Nikon D800e.

I have noticed that many people who own this lens have been selling and buying the new zoom. It may be worth a look on auction sites for lightly used versions, it may save you a little as there are quite a few for sale out there at the moment.

15 of 19 people found the following review helpful By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 21 Jun 2012
+ Solid construction, but aperture ring is slightly looser than 35mm lens.
+ 116g, light
+ 52mm thread (same as 35mm lens)
+ Lens hood has rubber cap
+ Convenient external aperture ring
+ Manual focus ring well damp
+ Reasonably sharp wide open, less sharp than 35mm lens.
+ Great image quality, colours
+ Beautiful bokeh but not much for a wide angle lens
+ No visible vignetting
+ Reasonable AF speed, faster than 35mm lens
- Dust gets inside the lens easily
- Lens cap difficult to pinch
- Rubber lens hood cap easy to drop off when knocked
- Not internal zoom
- Noisy zooming mechanism, not good for video. Less so than 35mm lens.
- Slight chromatic aberration (purple fringing) at wide open
- Easy to flare
- Manual fly-by-wire implementation has lag, impaired by EVF low refresh rate
- Minimum focus distance of 18cm
- Have to use EVF when shooting at minimum focus distance. OVF will not focus.
- OVF framelines covers less than 100%. Photos will be larger
- OVF parallax adjustment not that significant for wide angle lens

In terms of optical quality, the 35mm lens is one notch better. However, I still find it a joy to use on the X-Pro1 because that sensor is just too good.

I actually use this lens more often than the 35mm lens because I prefer a wider view.

4 stars for image quality, probably 4 stars for other issues.

This was just the lens I need for the work I was doing. It comes into its own if you are photograhy street scenes in tight places.
