Fujifilm has some great lenses and great cameras, with a lineup that has been consistently improving for years. But which lens in this lineup takes the gold medal in your opinion?
I am a big fan of Fujifilm as any regular reader of mine will know. While I was sold on their products by their medium format cameras, my time with their smaller sensors has impressed me all the same. The issue that has plagued manufacturers of cameras outside of the top two or three has traditionally been the number of lenses available for the systems. That is, not only do Canon, Nikon, and most recently, Sony, now have great selections of lenses that they themselves make, but other companies like Sigma and Samyang produced lenses for them too. For quite some time, getting new lenses from dedicated lens-only manufacturers for systems like Fujifilm or Panasonic was difficult or impossible.
Now, it seems, Fujifilm, in particular, have bolstered their ranks substantially. This year alone has seen several new and exciting lenses for the X-Mount, including the much anticipated 50mm. The Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens had caught the attention of many primarily for the obvious metric: its maximum aperture of f/1.0. This puts the lens firmly in the camp of some of the fastest glass you can buy for any camera, and you might expect this to easily top the "best Fujifilm lens" charts, but it doesn't, at least for Andrew & Denae who claim it misses eye focus too often.
What Fujifilm lens would you put at number 1?
