A Review of the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR Lens

There is no shortage of 50mm lenses for Fujifilm shooters, and they cover the entire gamut in terms of design, capabilities, and price. If you are looking for a functional but affordable 50mm lens, check out this great video review of the XF 50mm f/2 R WR.

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR lens. While the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR and XF 56mm f/1.2 R are both highly impressive, the 50mm f/2 is far more affordable, and for users who do not need the most extreme design, it can be a great option. It comes with a variety of features, including:

  • One aspherical extra-low dispersion element for reduced chromatic and spherical aberrations and increased sharpness and clarity
  • Super EBC coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Stepping motor for quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
  • Dust- and moisture-resistance
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Altogether, the 50mm f/2 looks like a rugged, functional lens that is great for a variety of scenarios, particularly for anyone looking for an affordable option. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts.

He literally just reviews Fujifilm lenses and spends the whole video moaning about them from what I’ve seen.

Not that moana and groaner again I really hate him for simply being boring and uninteresting.
