Fuji 35mm f1.4 ….. It’s arrived

Yep it’s here. The Fujinon 35mm f/1.4 is reputed to be one of the best 35mm lenses you can buy, and that includes the Leica and Sumicron. I am normally a shallow depth of field nutter and i tend to specialise in making to boring look interesting. This Fuji 35mm f1.4 masterpiece of a lens has just re-defined shallow depth of field and creamy bokeh. So I need to review but I am not going to sit the night this thing arrived. Oh no I’m off to take pictures with it. And review next week. But for now 3 shots straight out of the camera as ridiculously poor indoor lighting. Bonkers. First impressions are ..build quality solid, and firm actuation of all rotating parts and really like that. Feels like all aluminium. Lightweight on the X-e1 so it can hand round my neck all day if it wants. Slow AF but I don’t care, if you read my blog you know I don’t care. Slow down and take time. Manual focus, love it. Results OMG ….. I’m off to play.

  1. Hey Simon, have fun with your new toy. Just one question for when you will be back: how does slow autofocus compare to the 18-55’s? Slower?
