How about other alternative :

  • $199 XC 35mm F2 which claimed optically idential to the XF version (130g)
  • $279 Viltrox AF 33mm f/1.4 XF Lens for FUJIFILM X (270g)

DPReview lens specs:

  • $599 XF 35mm F1.4 R (187g) : 1 aspherical element.
  • $499 XF 35mm F2 R WR (170g) : 2 ED elements + Nano-GI coating.
  • $199 XC 35mm F2 (130g) : 2 aspherical elements.

Are XF 35mm F1.4 R coating different with XF 35mm F2 R WR?

XC 35mm F2 claimed optically idential to the XF version, just with a plastic chassis and lens mount. Are XC 35mm F2 missing Fuji coating since missing "Super EBC" mark in lens.

If missing Fuji coating, why not go to affordable Viltrox AF 33mm f/1.4? Biggest issue of affordable China's lens is missing good coating.
