For Fujifilm photographers, the XF 18mm f/1.4 R LM WR and XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR offer both a wide angle and a normal focal length in tandem with a wide maximum aperture, making them versatile options for a wide range of genres, including wedding work, street photography, portraiture, and much more. How do they hold up over time? This excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from them.

Coming to you from Roman Fox, this great video review takes a long-term look at the Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4 R LM WR and XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR lenses. Both these lenses feature advanced designs, with features like:

  • Aspherical elements and ED elements for reduced distortion and spherical aberrations and increased sharpness
  • Linear autofocus motors for quick and quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video applications
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragms for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant designs for working in a range of scenarios

Altogether, both these lenses look like impressive performers that offer nice image quality and rugged construction that you can trust in a wide range of situations. Check out the video above for Fox's full thoughts on both lenses.
