The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Compactness; very low weight; ideal focal length combination between 35mm and 50mm eq (obviously it is subjective, everyone is fine with certain focal lengths); optical yield; Constant maximum aperture F2.8
Cons:Autofocus a little noisy and not lightning on x-t10 (much better on x-s10, but always makes noise); lacks diaphragm ring and tropicalization (but is forgiven costing half in the used compared to the 27mm R WR)
Opinion:Mine is made in the Philippines. The only Fujifilm fixed lens I kept. The compactness and low weight make an x-t10/20/30 a virtually pocket-sized camera. Focal length that I love for reportage. Maximum fixed aperture at f2.8 allows good shots even with not abundant light. The optical yield is very good. At full aperture, it rightly gives greater clarity to the center and isolates the subject. Closing at f4 is very homogeneous throughout the frame and improves further up to f8. It performs best on medium distances, on short distances the edges lose a little if you do not close at least at f5.6, the overall yield drops a thread to infinity, but absolutely usable for panoramas if closed at f8-f11, where the yield between center and edges is also quite homogeneous. I believe that its dedicated hood is a must to have no loss of contrast with side and front light up to about 40 degrees. It fits in a pocket, so as a bright or backup lens to take on the road is a must. I put it next to 18-55 f2.8-4. I don't care much about noisy autofocus (it's noisy if you make videos, in photography it's not like you see people turning around for noise): I don't make videos.
Cons:Lack of personality, focus, lack of diaphragm ring, uncomfortable cap
Opinion:I had read excellent opinions and seen remarkable photos in the gallery, but in my case love was never taken because of a general flatness of the images I could get: tried on X-E2 and X-E3, it was my first fuji lens, but honestly as soon as I got my hands on the 18-55 I found the images I took much more interesting (and not because of the focal length, as I still shoot at very similar focal lengths in general). Also I have always had doubts about the effectiveness of focusing (perhaps due to lack of stabilization). In the end the results were rather disappointing. Resold without regrets.
Pros:excellent yield, compactness and lightness, price
Cons:lack of diaphragms ring, uncomfortable cap
Opinion:It was my first Fuji lens. It is a pity that it is the most underestimated perspective of the system and on which there are prejudices that are nothing short of unjustified. The focal length, equivalent to 40 mm, makes the lens almost a jack of all trades (street, set portraits, family photos) and can be used safely as the only lens for disengaged exits, rediscovering the pleasure of having fun photographing. The first value that catches the eye, in fact, is the compactness that makes any camera body if not pocket-sized, however transportable (with a small camera you become almost "invisible" to the eyes of others). Despite the appearances of a "toy", the yield is surprising, both in terms of sharpness (truly remarkable) and color never excessive and natural. The af is precise, even if it does not have the reactivity of lenses such as the 23mm f/2 or the 50mm f/2, and it must be said that it is slightly noisy: after all, let's not forget that it is a pancake, which forces compromises. The only flaw is the lack of the ring of the diaphragms, but you get used to it. I don't deny that if it had been f/2 it would have been perfect. Finally, which does not hurt, it can be found in the second-hand market at ridiculous prices, especially after the release of the new version. For the record, I sold it to take the 23mm f/2, convinced to make a decisive leap in quality, and then regret it and run to buy it back. I bring it together with the 18mm, to constitute a "walking" kit unsurpassed in weight and size, as well as in quality.
Opinion:Copied first to my X-E1, and now to the x-E3 that replaced it, it has made these two bodies of the "compact" pocket of all respect. Purchased in the silver version, on the X-E3 limited it is really aesthetically perfect, thanks also to the dedicated silver hood that I found on the net. Excellent all-rounder, from the street to the landscape. In the center it is always very sharp, even at f2.8, but to also have the edges, you have to close at f5.6, which is also the maximum yield aperture. Free of chromatic aberration, vignetting and distortion (automatic correction by the camera software, if set).
Opinion:On Canon I used the pancake for years 24 2.8... on Fuji I tried this 27. What can I say? Very comfortable focal, it allows everything, although not my favorite. The really indisputable merit is that used with a mirrorless x-e pheasant, it carries around in your pocket without problems even for daily walks. The yield seems pretty good to me, despite the fact that the lens looks like a toy. Well made, compact but "substantial". Fast and precise focus (I use it on X-E3), good sharpness as well as color rendering. I mean... has all the cards in order to be mounted on the machine and stay there firmly. On the used market there are specimens at attractive prices, especially since the new version came out. I would like to recommend it, also because it brings the photographic approach back to its essence, like any fixed lens, with the careful choice of shots. The focal point allows us to do everything.
