Pros:Compactness and weight, focal length, sharpness and overall rendering
Cons:AF a bit noisy indoors
Opinion:Fantastic optics: super compact, it makes e.g. a compact X-Pro 3 almost like an X100V. For the street it is the best for discretion and not giving in the eye. The equivalent 40mm focal length lends itself very well to a generalist use: from the street, to the landscape, to the set portrait ... if desired it can be used as the only travel lens for example. The WR is excellent, perhaps the diaphragm 2.8 does not lend itself much to portraits in the foreground for the difficulty of detaching a lot, but it is not designed for this purpose ... the sharpness and yield and 'excellent already' from 2.8 cmq. The only flaw is perhaps that the AF indoors and in the silence turns out to be a bit noisy (but outdoors it is not felt at all). A very recommended optics!!
Pros:Size and weight, tropicalization, good general IQ
Cons:Noisy and sometimes inaccurate AF
Opinion:I was pleasantly impressed by this 27 MKII, the addition of tropicalization and the diaphragm ring, which for me was essential on a lens were the push that convinced me to resume this goal, and although the official sources say that nothing has changed on AF and optical scheme, I have perceived slight improvements both on the IQ with a better level of central detail on the range of diaphragms from f/2.8 to f/8, and on the AF, in particular the latter is slightly more precise and rapid than the 27 MKI, it still remains very noisy, but not making videos does not bother me much. The size and weight allow us to be very light, it couples beautifully on an XE body, which in this configuration is mirrored in weight and size to the X100V, advantage of less obvious dimensions on XT and XPRO bodies, but always widely perceptible. Optics that at list price is a bit caretta but if you have the opportunity to buy it from kit it would be to be taken on the fly.
Pros:Dimensions - weight - focal (suitable for everything) - tropicalization
Cons:Yield against bad light - initial price - a little flat on American flat portraits - af noisy and often undecided
Opinion:I wanted to try this 41 mm equivalent on ff because I am looking for a whole thing to do that replaces the 23 1.4 for the too slow and undecided af. Unfortunately this 27 has a big problem against light... if you put the sun behind the subject you create a white spot one-third the size of the frame. Also the loss of contrast is very... Too bad because I had fallen in love with the size but above all with the diaphragm ring that is finally designed for photographers and not for video... dry and hard as it is right that it is (you do not risk changing diaphragm without wanting it)... The three-dimensionality in portraits with American plan is also very low... Ah who needs to know that both the optical scheme and the af are the same as the first version therefore noisy, fast but with some hunting and the lenses move outwards ... I mean, I was hoping it was love, but it was a...
