FujiFilm FUJINON XF35mm f/1.4 R Featuring an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with Super EBC coating while the high-quality metal barrel and precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring gives versatile control.

Fujifilm finally posts firmware updates for the X-E1, X-Pro1 cameras and the XF 35mm lens, hiccups reported by users.

Some quick notes on user reactions: Apparently the XF 35mm firmware upgrade makes the lens noisier in operation, at least that's what many people report.
The X-E1 update does not result in as dramatic AF speed improvements as the earlier X-Pro1 update did. The camera DOES focus more accurately now, especially with the 18-55mm kit lens, but many users claim it does so at the expense of speed. And finally, one big issue Fujifilm did not resolve is the much wanted minimum shutter speed at auto Iso setting. Finally, Rico Pfirstinger has posted some nice tips about firmware upgrading on Fujifilm bodies: . . . read more

Kent Johnson shoots a fashion jewellery campaign for Oumura with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Fujinon XF 35mmF1.4 R Lens.

Another day, another pro photographer that dares to make the move to mirrorless gear. Here, Kent supplies a lot of photographs with his essay, and some X-Pro1 out of camera Jpeg vs Adobe Lightroom vs Silkypix raw files rendering comparisons. Also, kudos for not stripping the EXIFs out the photos.

"For me the decision to use the Fuji X-Pro1 on this shoot was definitely the right call. The Camera and the XF35mmF1.4 R were a perfect combination for the contemporary fashion look and feel we were after from the shoot. The image quality is superb and the cameras ability to focus accurately and quickly (in that order) allowed me to focus more on what was happening in front of the camera; the shots, than worrying if the shots were really in focus or not. And as I wrote in my X-Pro1 review on Street Fashion Sydney; this is a camera that enhances your photography instead of hindering it.  Love it! . . . read more

FujiFilm FUJINON XF35mm f/1.4 R lens review (tested with a Fujifilm X-Pro1) at Photo Review: Excellent performance, and robust build quality.

"With JPEG files from the X-Pro 1 camera, the review lens produced the highest resolution figures of the three  XF lenses we tested. Resolution in our Imatest testing exceeded expectations between f/2.8 and f/5.6, with f/8 just falling short of the f/2.8 figure, probably as a result of diffraction.

There was a noticeable drop in resolution from f/8 but resolution remained acceptably high up to f.16 and produced acceptably sharp images. Corner softening was less evident than with the XF18mm f/2 R lens and the lens delivered excellent flatness of field from about f/2.8 through to f/16. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.

Lateral chromatic aberration remained towards the lower end of the 'negligible' band all the way from f/1.4 to f/16. In the graph below, which shows the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the boundary between negligible and low CA. . . . read more
