5.0 out of 5 stars Great for casual photographers, 1 Feb. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm 27mm Fujinon XF Lens for X-Pro1, X-E1, X-M1, X-E2 and X-T1 - Black (Accessory)
I am not a photography expert by any means, so I'll leave comments about technical performance to others, but this is a great lens when paired with the X-M1. You can fit it in a jacket pocket and people don't notice when you are using it on the street, and it's much less of an attention magnet indoors.

If you're like me and aren't ready to buy several lenses to cover the different focal lengths, this is a great companion for the M1's kit lens. I'll stick to the 16-50 when going out to take photographs, but this lens makes carrying the camera around (when going to work or heading to the pub) much less of a chore. As a casual photographer, spending the money on this lens has enabled me to use the camera more because I don't have to worry about stashing it safely.

The only thing that I would say about its performance is that the lens will hunt a lot when in auto-focus mode, focusing out and in again every time you take a picture (even if you haven't moved an inch). If I'm aiming at something still, I'll set the focus manually to avoid this.
