    Great weather proof "nifty fifty"

    I'm using this on an X-Pro2 and it's really surprising what it does for the price. I've also owned the 35mm f/1.4 but there's a difference between them that goes beyond the widest aperture. Neither one is objectively superior and they have different qualities. For what I do I think I like the general rendering of this f/2 aperture version better. In addition, it's faster focusing, way quieter and less "clunky" in operation. It's sharp, versatile and built well. For what you pay, you get an excellent standard prime. If you're a wide-open bokeh purist the more expensive f/1.4 is better, but the f/2 version is perhaps a better lens overall when you consider every aspect -- at least for me. The image I'm posting was made with this lens -- it's post processed for the look but I think the high quality of the source image from this lens is still apparent.

    Optically brilliant; best Fujinon lens yet

    Simply read online reviews of this lens, and you will be tempted to buy one for yourself. All the reviews about this lens are spot on: great bokeh, fast and silent autofocus, light and compact, great build, great design (albeit a little odd due to the tapering of the lens). Everything about this lens is optically great. There is no better lens for general photography. This is the nifty-50 for the Fuji-X series. If you want to blur the background more, get the 35mm f1.4, but for the $100 less, you get weather sealing, faster autofocus, and equal performance at all equivalent apertures.

    I already had the f1.4 version of this lens and always get great shots out of it. This focal length is a great walk-around lens for the X-series of Fujis. I had heard so many good things about this f2 lens so I pulled the trigger and bought it at a bargain. After using the lens for a few days, I can honestly say it's one of my favorites for the X-T1. Focus is fast and it's much quieter than the f1.4. It's also much lighter and the weather-proofing is also a plus.

    I love this lens for portraits. I was a little concerned that the f/2 wouldn't be fast or than the bokeh would be not as good as some other lenses I currently use, but I decided to give it a chance since the price of this lens is really affordable. After a few times using it I was really excited with the quality of the images. It's extremely small which make it perfect for documentary or street photography. Build quality is also exceptional for it's price.

    I have owned this lens as well as the XT2 for a couple of months now. I finally understand what people when they say this system make shooting fun. This lens is crisp corner to corner and is a sharp and compact all-in-one lens. I'm blown away by how well it does sunsets/night photos. Incredibly sharp photos even when at a 100x crop! I've really enjoyed creating timelapses with this lens. Must buy!!

    If you want a single prime lens for walking around and shooting, this is a great start. While not as fast as the 35mm f/1.4, the autofocus is lightning quick and overall makes the camera feel like a feather in your hand. Sometime in the next year this will be complemented by the 23mm f/2 and 50mm f/2 lens, as part of a set of approachable priced primes for Fuji shooters.

    I have used Nikon, Canon and Olympus, all state of the art cameras. I have never blown away by the uality of Fuji XT-1 camera. This lens on top of XT-1 is simply amazing. It is not you that love this camera and photos, the people in the photographs love it and swear it on how beautiful they look on your pictures. Go get it!

    You usually don't find lenses this sharp for $300, but Fuji did a great job with this lens. I use it for both video and photography. This lens usually stays on my X-T2 75% of the time. I would highly recommend this camera to both amateurs and pros looking for a good lens to add to their kit.

    this is a great lens. I love this 35 f.2 it is lighter and a little cheaper than the 35 f1.4. This is one of the two I usually carry in my bag. I use mines for a lot of street photography/ portrait and it is one of my go to lens for everyday carry!

    Pros: Lightweight, yet durable Super fast auto-focus Very small and lightweight Great bokeh Cons: Too small to work well with my ring light softbox Not sure it has OIS. It doesn't have a switch on the side like my 18-135. Does not work well with a macro extension tube

    Fuji makes some stellar lenses. This is a must-have lens for your bag as it is a fast prime with a equivalent 50mm. Great for walking around and some portraits, although you may want to get the F1.4 version if portraits are your goal.

    Fast focus speed with my XT3 and low light performance. It's my go to for my incognito shooting. Lens is very small which is nice. Everyone does not take a second look at you when using this lens.

    Solid, fast, light, and small. With its f2 appeture and super fast focusing speed, this is a grab and go lense for the X series camera thanks to its compact size and weather resistance design. Great choice for street photographer.

    After reading and watching a bunch of reviews, this is what I got for my first lens on my xt10. I'm amazed by it and it continues to put a smile on my face with every photo I take. Highly recommended.

    Coming from a canon background, I could only compare this lens to the canon L 35f1.4. It is sharp, silent focusing, and a great value. Any prime glass snobs should include this in their bag for everyday use.

    No need to add more. This is one of the cheapest perfect prime lens for the Fuji x system. Von need to stop it down to get sharp pictures. This is sharp at max aperture 2.0. Just perfect

    I bought this for my son, to go with his second camera. It's a great lens and the wide aperture lets him take perfect shots even in lower light conditions. Great value for the money.
