Pros: Compact design. Decent materials. Good balance on some bodies (e.g. X-T series). Good looks. APERTURE STOPS ARE LABELLED (unlike some stupid Fuji lenses like 18-55 which have aperture rings ... without stops labelled ... ???)

Cons: Aperture ring too easy to move and lacks a clean sharp 'A' click. Very slow, next to useless "manual" focus. Extremely ugly hood that looks like a Messerschmitt design. It is made of metal so if you hit anything, you can damage the lens, the mount or the body. The hood should be light plastic or hard rubber.

Opinion: The lens is shamelessly expensive. Comparative Canon lens (50 1.8 STM) costs EUR 100 - only 20%, or less, of Fuji lens. It is only a bit justified by Fuji better materials. Sharpness is OK but nothing outstanding (compared to other makes). Colour is +good and distortion seems low (I say seems because Fuji bodies correct distortion on the fly. Blur is OK but not spectacular as the lens is equivalent of FF f 2.1 only. If you want good strong blur, you buy a Sigma 50 ART and a FF body. To sum up - a decent lens, just ridiculously expensive. The 'noises' on my bodies with updated firmwares are still there but they are of no importance - they will not wake up a sleeping child nor disturb a stupid cat. I do not know what the noises are like on old bodies with old firmware but with my bodies they are zero problem. I bought it at EUR 550 only because I could not get it s/h. I think if you can get it s/h at about 200-300 EUR, then it is a good buy. Six months later: my sample is extremely soft - VERY VERY soft - at f 1.4. I am not sure why Fuji made this softness. It may be creative ??? for maybe ??? portraits but otherwise it limits the usable apertures to 2.0 and smaller. Really shame. Still, a recommended lens - if you get it second hand at a good price, maybe EUR 200 or so.

Pros: Pleasantness of the images, compactness / lightness (it is still an f1.4!), build quality, a Fujifilm classic on the list for many years (if it did not have some merit it would not be there yet)

Cons: AF not fast (but very usable), optically dated and not at the top (but is this really a problem?).

Opinion: When I decided to join Fujifilm's APSC system 2 years ago, the 35 f1.4 (50mm equivalent) was the first lens I bought. Both because many spoke well of it but also because when in the 90s I began to photograph, doing a photography course, the first camera (SLR) that I bought I equipped to comedy with a 50mm (on the advice of the teacher of the course). Excellent starting point, classic fixed lens (instead of the zoom of little value, which today goes for the most). As a focal it may or may not like it (as with all things) but in its kind it is a valuable lens. Built well, without primates of optical quality but compensating with an image rendering also in my opinion, as for many, it is very pleasant. Today there are several lenses that are optically very performing, precise, very sharp... they are so hypercorrect that they often give a feeling of aseptic coldness. It is logical that when the lenses all tend towards the same optical precision vertex their yield is very similar. It is not easy to find words that describe sensations, but this lens easily gives an image rendering that returns a "warm" feeling, it is pleasant, pleasant, "enveloping". If, on the other hand, you are looking for a lens that tends to optical perfection... look elsewhere (... but I put a doubt: do you really need all this optical perfection?) I read an article that dealt with optical quality in photographic lenses. He said something like that every lens is like a "recipe" with which engineers balance the various optical aberrations, "dose" them in some ways, and there are two paths that can be followed. The first way (or philosophy) is to tend to the balance/ attenuation as neutral and precise as possible between the various aberrations, in order to reduce the defects as much as possible. The second is to have as a priority a certain characterization of the image rendering, perhaps at the expense of some imbalance / optical defect. So two different philosophies, one is effficiency and optical precision, the other is to look for a certain kind of pleasantness and characterization of image (without bothering words like "magic"). If you like the philosophy of image pleasantness and you are less interested in the primacy of optical quality I recommend a Fujifilm camera with the triad 18 f2, 35 f1.4 and 60 f2.4. Unfortunately, very few products of this type are produced today and in fact many enthusiasts go to look for certain particular renderings of the image going fishing among the "vintage" lenses. In my opinion, it is a merit of Fujifilm to have an eye towards this kind of product. This without detracting from the optical excellence, WR, AF, of many modern lenses (including for example the new Fujifilm f1.4 lenses).

Pros: Excellent lens, excellent blurred and beautiful incision closing the diaphragm slightly. Lightness

Cons: maybe the autofocus but on an XT4 travels

Opinion: I have owned it for a few years and I put it on sale here on the market because in all this time I have used it very very little, too little, simply because the 50mm is not my focal length. I love wide-angle and super wide-angle lenses + medium telephoto. Not everything in between. The few photos I took there, especially reportage portraits, convinced me a lot for the quality. For those who love to photograph with the 50 can not miss in his bag.

Pros: Image softness and engraving, tonal range, progressive blur

Cons: Autofocus

Opinion: From here to say magic the world passes us by. I understand the preferences, but we are objective, that magic touch we are talking about basically depends on the body on which this 35mm is grafted, its character varies according to this.. Having made this premise it is an excellent lens, soft and engraved as needed, excellent colors tending to heat, excellent blurred very progressive. Being a dated project, it sins (even with the performance boost provided by the latest machines) in focus, but it is easily forgiven. As well as every 50mm has the advantage and defect of distorting according to the distance, so it must be able to enhance. To make school and understand your tastes I consider it an excellent initial lens, if put in a set of right focal lengths it becomes a necessary optics.

Pros: Lightness, comfort of the diaphragmi ring, blurred rendering

Cons: Autofocus not as fast as the latest optics but still good.

Opinion: It is one of the optics that convinced me to switch from SLR to mirrorless. Coupled with an XE-3 allows you to have in very little space, weight and, let's face it, expense, a tool that I have no problem defining as excellent. Neutral color rendering, beautiful tonal range. It is undoubtedly one of the optics that I use the most of the Fuji park.
