Hi Smatty,

Yes, it is a good combination. But to see the XF 35 to actually be better than my beloved Canon EF 35 L was a bit of a surprize for me. I thought that the bigger lens with FD elements and "L" rating would actually do better considering it only has to cover an APS-C size senosor with its sweet spot.

Cheers,

Hi Smatty,

thanks for sharing. Sometime ago I compared Fujinon 35 mm to various classic MF lenses and came to the same conclusion, fuji lens outperformed all of them, even some cult lenses, in sharpness and color rendition. Only few old lenses produced a bit better bokeh.

I am wondering if the rumors about an upgraded XF 35mm are true? Optics are great, but maybe they'll improve AF speed and add weather proofing?

Cheers,
Marco
