I tend to mount this when I'm heading out with the least gear possible.  I am always surprised at the nice results and never hesitate to trust it for first rate imaging.  I can't rationalize one of the fine, fixed-lens Fuji offerings with the ability to mount this and have a similarly compact walking around rig.

Bought this lens the other week from the London Camera Exchange for £180. Never had a prime before but wanted to lower the profile of my X-T1 so took it to Lanzarote for a months holiday and left my two kit lenses at home. Was well pleased with sharpness across the frame - no sign of any corner sharpness. Having shaky hands at times(because I'm over 70) I was worried about the lack of anti-shake but I needn't have worried - just made sure the shutter speed was 1/200 or better. Obviously not ...

Aside from the 18mm F2, it's the only inconspicuous and compact lens option for Fuji X. Made in China, but feels more like Japan, with the all-metal mount and overall feeling.

AF is a bit noisy, but nothing to worry about, MF ring pretty smooth ...

Having been a RF shooter for a long time I like prime lenses; not being able to afford a digital Leica I settled for an X mount Fuji a couple of years ago. This lens seemed like the perfect solution for an unobstrusive street rig and, basically, it is. Focal length in-between a 35 and a 50 (eq.), fast enough for well illuminated subjects and almost sufficient for a mild background defocus. The lens is more than sharp for anything but pixel peeping, focusing on my X-Pro1 and X-E2 is lightning ...

Very good lens. It's small and very clear. I use it with an X-M1 and it's a wonderful gear. Very nice picture, it's quite fast and the angle of view is perfect for lot of shots. Probably I'd like it let me focus more close and it use a more common filter dimension but I'm happy to have bought this lens.

Great lens. Good for just about anything and it is very compact. Why take it out with you? - For good focus accuracy - You want it compact and lightweight - When you like excellent image quality - Sexy looks without looking too excited - Discretion is important to you - You appreciate good built quality - One for all solutions with a bit of creativity suits you well Why not take it out? - You don't like excellent image quality - Big and extended is your wanabe have - The least bit of AF-motor ...
