10 GREAT FUJIFILM X-MOUNT LENSES

We separate the top X Mount prime and long range focal points for Fujifilm's mirrorless cameras. Fujifilm's mirrorless camera frameworks have gone ahead solid, with models like the X-T2 and X-Pro2 gathering genuine followings among photography aficionados. Beneath we separate the top prime and long range focal point alternatives for Fujifilm X Mount from wide edge and representation to fax. Fujifilm's primes are especially solid, however the lineup all in all flaunts amazing sharpness, absence of bending, and construct quality. For more foundation data, see our focal point purchasing guidance underneath the picks.

1. Fujifilm 35mm f/2 ($399)

Fujifilm 35mm f2 lensCategory: Portrait/travel

35mm proportional: 53mm

Weight: 6 oz.

What we like: Pro-grade optics at a sensible cost.

What we don't: You can go quicker with the f/1.4 form beneath.

Fujifilm is best known for road photography and representation, and especially for its prime focal points, so it should not shock anyone that the 35mm f/2 is at the highest priority on this rundown. With a 53mm proportionate, this lightweight focal point offers amazing sharpness and low light execution at a sensible cost. In case you're in the market for a X-mount stroll around focal point that can help take your photography to the following level, look no further.

An increasingly costly choice at this central length range is the 35mm f/1.4 underneath. We like this focal point, which offers a quicker greatest gap by one stop, however the more significant expense ($599) and heavier weight (10.3 ounces) tilted the scales for the f/2. Get the f/1.4 form whenever cost isn't an issue or you're an expert who relies upon this central length, however we think the 35mm f/2 is an extraordinary worth.

2. Fujifilm 23mm f/2 ($449)

Fujifilm 23mm f2 lensCategory: Travel

35mm identical: 35mm

Weight: 6.4 oz.

What we like: Great optics and quicker self-adjust than the f/1.4 adaptation.

What we don't: somewhat thin for representations.

The Fujifilm 23mm f/2 isn't exactly as flexible as the 35mm f/2 above, with a 35mm central length proportionate that is somewhat thin for picture. In any case, this prime focal point has extraordinary optics and is perfect for road photography and travel: it's lightweight, sharp, quick, concentrates rapidly, and even accompanies climate fixing. That is practically the entire bundle in our book.

For experts and devotees who rely upon this central length, the pricier Fujifilm 23mm f/1.4 is one stop quicker. The facts confirm that this focal point will give you prevalent bokeh and profundity of field, making a decent blending for top of the line Fujifilm cameras like the X-Pro2. In any case, at more than twofold the cost of the f/2 adaptation and multiple ounces heavier, also the more slow self-adjust, a great many people will find that the f/2 performs fine and dandy.

3. Fujifilm 10-24mm f/4 ($999)

Fujifilm 10-24mm f4 lensCategory: Wide point

35mm proportionate: 15-36mm

Weight: 14.5 oz.

What we like: The top wide-edge zoom for Fujifilm.

What we don't: Pricey and not climate fixed.

We wish there were all the more wide-edge choices for Fujifilm X Mount, and a f/2.8 zoom doesn't appear to be out of the domain of plausibility. In any case, that doesn't stop the 10-24mm f/4 from being an awesome focal point in general. With a central length likeness 15-36mm, it's shockingly like the 16-35mm full-outline focal points that are so famous among experts. As we've generally expected from Fujifilm, this focal point is too sharp, has negligible bending, is all around constructed, and accompanies picture adjustment for sure. In the event that you shoot scenes or other wide-edge shots on Fujifilm, this is your most solid option.

The greatest obstacle in picking the Fujifilm 10-24mm f/4 is cost. Almost $1,000 is a ton to spend for a f/4 focal point that isn't climate fixed, however once more, wide-edge picture takers don't have a huge amount of X-Mount choices. We do like the Fujifilm 14mm f/2.8 prime, however that focal point costs almost to such an extent and is less flexible. In case you're truly hoping to spare, the Rokinon 12mm f/2 beneath is a fun manual center focal point that gets your foot in the wide-edge entryway without burning up all available resources.

4. Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 ($999)

Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 lensCategory: Portrait

35mm identical: 85mm

Weight: 14.3 oz.

What we like: The quickest Fujifilm focal point available.

What we don't: Heavy and self-adjust could be better.

Welcome to the quickest focal point in the Fujifilm lineup. With a greatest gap of f/1.2 and a 85mm central length proportional, this is the chief picture focal point for Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. Bokeh, profundity of field, and shading interpretation are unrivaled in the X-Mount lineup, and the focal point performs incredibly well in any event, when fully open. In case you're a genuine representation shooter with the financial limit, this is an unquestionable requirement have focal point.

Our lone genuine grievance about the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 is self-adjust. Fujifilm cameras have lingered behind Sony and others in this classification by and large, and this focal point tends to chase now and again (low complexity circumstances can cause the most issues). However, we truly are simply nitpicking about a generally terrific focal point.

5. Fujifilm 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 OIS ($699)

Fujifilm 55-200mm lensCategory: Telephoto

35mm proportionate: 84-304mm

Weight: 20.5 oz.

What we like: Solid zoom range and great optics.

What we don't: Autofocus can be moderate.

There are a bunch of fax alternatives for Fujifilm, however our top all-around pick in this class is the 55-200mm. This focal point has you concealed to a likeness 305mm and with truly good most extreme opening of f/3.5-4.8 (for a fax zoom, that is). You additionally get great sharpness and picture adjustment for hand-held photographs in low light. This focal point is more costly than we might want and self-adjust can be moderate, however despite everything it compliments the 18-55mm pack focal point and different primes pleasantly.

For the individuals who just arrangement on taking shots at the fax end of the range now and again, the Fujifilm 55-230mm f/4.5-6.7 is extensively lighter and less expensive, with the significant penance coming in speed. What's more, genuine fax devotees ought to consider the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 beneath, which is distant cost-wise for a great many people yet has the longest zoom scope of any X-Mount focal point by a wide margin.

See the Fujifilm 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8

6. Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 ($599)

Fujifilm 35mm f1.4 lensCategory: Portrait/travel

35mm proportionate: 53mm

Weight: 6.6 oz.

What we like: F/1.4 is a decent spot to be.

What we don't: Autofocus can be moderate and somewhat noisy.

The Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4 is the second "clever fifty" on this rundown, coming in at an extremely flexible 52.5mm proportionate. We thought about positioning it over the f/2 adaptation, which possesses the top spot on the rundown, yet there are two or three reasons why we didn't. The first is self-adjust, which can be delayed in certain light and is noisy for a prime. The second is value, which is a noteworthy $200 more. Both are quality focal points and you can't amiss with either, yet we think f/2 is quick enough for a great many people.

In any case, for the individuals who don't anticipate taking this focal point off their camera much, it's value in putting resources into the Fujifilm 35mm f/1.4. This focal point hits the blemish on practically all fronts: it's quick, sharp, and has superb form quality. What's more, this focal point genuinely sparkles when common light is low, making the f/1.4 the most loved among wedding and occasion picture takers.

7. Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS ($699)

Fujifilm 18-55mm lens.jpg Category: Travel/representation

35mm identical: 27-84mm

Weight: 10.9 oz.

What we like: A superb incentive as a component of a pack.

What we don't: For full MSRP, it can't confront different focal points on this rundown.

The Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 is sold with cameras like the X-T2 and X-T20, yet considering it a "pack" focal point would be an insult. Contrasted with other for the most part plastic and rather minor Nikon and Canon 18-55mm unit focal points, this Fujifilm is assembled better and far unrivaled from an optical viewpoint. In addition to the fact that you get a moderately quick greatest opening of f/2.8 at the wide end, this focal point is fresh all through the core of its zoom run with negligible bending.

Everything considered, how we feel about the Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4 legitimately corresponds with the cost for which you get it. As a component of different Fujifilm units, the focal point is normally accessible for $300 more than the expense of the camera body, which is an incredible worth. For its full MSRP of $699, it's as yet a quality focal point however not so alluring.

8. Fujifilm 14mm f/2.8 ($899)

Fujifilm 14mm f1.4 lensCategory: Wide edge

35mm equal: 21mm

Weight: 8.3 oz.

What we like: Very sharp and insignificant twisting.

What we don't: Less adaptability than the 10-24mm above.

One of the extraordinary points of interest of a mirrorless camera framework is the reduced size, and prime focal points quite often are littler and lighter than zooms. The top wide-point prime for Fujifilm X Mount is the 14mm f/2.8, which hits the sweet spot for scene photography with a 21mm central length identical. At 8.3 ounces, it's generously lighter than the 10-24mm above (14.5 ounces). Furthermore, the focal point doesn't frustrate from a picture quality viewpoint with extraordinary sharpness, almost no contortion, and strong low light execution.

Everything considered, we have the Fujifilm 14mm f/2.8 positioned here in light of the fact that we esteem the bigger zoom run and expanded adaptability of the 10-24mm f/4 above. More, we've discovered that most wide-point photographs are taken in conventional normal light, in this manner the quicker greatest opening isn't as significant for what it's worth with a picture or travel focal point. Both are great choices, yet at comparative value focuses, we lean toward the zoom. For a less expensive wide-edge prime, see the manual center Rokinon 12mm f/2 underneath.

See the Fujifilm 14mm f/2.8

9. Fujifilm 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS ($899)

Classification: All-in-one

35mm proportional: 27-206mm

Weight: 17.3 oz.

What we like: The most adaptable focal point on this rundown and climate fixed.

What we don't: It's difficult to leave behind every one of those extraordinary primes.

The 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 is Fujifilm's nearest estimation of an across the board focal point, covering you from wide edge to fax and everything in the middle. There are a great deal of encouraging points here: the focal point is adaptable, very much manufactured, climate fixed (the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 pack focal point isn't), and proficient enough optically to keep a great many people upbeat. In case you're searching for a one-stop answer for your Fujifilm camera, this is it.

Nonetheless, it doesn't feel right swearing off the majority of Fujifilm's wonderful prime focal points for an across the board. Numerous Fujifilm purchasers are sticklers for picture quality, maybe significantly more so than the normal Canon or Nikon APS-C purchaser, and we generally feel reluctant about prescribing an across the board when claim to fame primes or zooms are unrivaled. Get the Fujifilm 18-135mm if effortlessness and flexibility are top needs, however for a great many people we believe it merits getting a few claim to fame focal points.

See the Fujifilm 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6

10. Fujifilm 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 OIS ($1,899)

Fujifilm 100-400mm X lensCategory: Telephoto

35mm proportionate: 152-609mm

Weight: 40.5 oz.

What we like: Incredible reach and shockingly great self-adjust.

What we don't: Very overwhelming and costly.

The Fujifilm 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 isn't the most reasonable focal point on this rundown, however it's one of the best time. With a stunning central length extend identical to 150-600mm, you'll get more reach than is accessible for pretty much some other APS-C framework (Panasonic has a 100-400mm for Micro Four Thirds, which has a 2x harvest factor, yet it's not exactly in the same class as this focal point). For everything from untamed life photography to detects, this is the chief X-Mount zooming focal point available.

The deficiencies of the Fujifilm 100-400mm are clear: it costs more than most Fujifilm cameras, and at more than 3 pounds, renders the entire "minimal" mirrorless camera framework idea to a great extent unimportant. In any case, regardless we give Fujifilm credit for going to the plate with this focal point: the optics and self-adjust are shockingly useful for such a long fax, including optical picture adjustment.

5 Fujifilm X-Mount Lenses that Just Missed the Cut

11. Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 ($1,199)

Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8lensCategory: Travel/representation

35mm comparable: 24-84mm

Weight: 23.1 oz.

What we like: An expert level mid-extend zoom.

What we don't: Pricey, substantial, and no picture adjustment.

One of the looked for after focal points for working experts is the 24-70mm f/2.8, which offers most extreme flexibility without trading off much in the method for optical execution. The 16-55mm f/2.8 is Fujifilm's nearest estimate of that, with a central length likeness 24-82.5mm (significantly more reach than a 24-70mm). You can add this focal point to pretty much any Fujifilm mirrorless camera and leave away with incredible photographs for everything from scenes to pictures.

There are a couple of reasons why the Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 isn't positioned higher. The first is weight: 23.1 ounces includes a mess of haul to a smaller mirrorless camera. The second is the absence of picture adjustment, which certainly would help in low light situations. At long last, Fujifilm has such solid prime contributions that it's difficult to forego them all for one zoom. We don't intend to detract from the nature of this focal point—you likely won't be frustrated with the photographs—yet there are a ton of lighter and more affordable primes above.

12. Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 ($999)

Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 lensCategory: Wide point

35mm proportional: 24mm

Weight: 13.2 oz.

What we like: Top-level optical execution.

What we don't: We don't love the central length.

We'll begin by saying that 24mm isn't our preferred central length. It's a smaller restricted for scene photography—we lean toward the 16mm to 21mm territory for the outside. What's more, road photography more often than not is best from around 35mm to 50mm. That makes the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 somewhat of a tweener as far as best employments.

Central length aside, this is one of Fujifilm's best performing focal points. It's amazingly great in low light at f/1.4, can make astounding bokeh and profundity of field, and is tack sharp with little mutilation. We have no bad things to say with the picture quality offered by this focal point, and given that Fujifilm's 14mm f/2.8 is two stops more slow, it's a reasonable wide-edge prime choice for the individuals who worth the speed.

See the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4

13. Rokinon 12mm f/2 for Fujifilm ($399)

Rokinon 12mm f2 for Fujifilm lensCategory: Wide point

35mm proportionate: 18mm

Weight: 9.2 oz.

What we like: Inexpensive for a wide-point focal point.

What we don't: Manual center isn't for everybody.

Given the fairly costly wide-edge focal point alternatives above like the 10-14mm f/4 and 14mm f/2.8, we are considering some fresh possibilities with the Rokinon 12mm f/2. This manual center focal point arrives in a Fujifilm X Mount and is sensibly evaluated at just shy of $400. Most noteworthy is its greatest gap of f/2, which is astounding for astrophotography and other low light photography.

Manual centering might be an obstacle for certain picture takers (we saw it as somewhat burdensome on this focal point), yet we cherish the sharpness and construct quality. For examination, the Zeiss 12mm Touit has comparable optics and is more than twofold the expense. Try not to anticipate that this focal point should coordinate your Zeiss as far as fabricate or picture quality, however it's a fun focal point and a decent worth.

14. Fujifilm 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS ($1,599)

Fujifilm 50-140mm f2.8 lensCategory: Telephoto

35mm proportional: 76-213mm

Weight: 35 oz.

What we like: The quickest fax zoom on this rundown.

What we don't: Heavy and constrained reach.

We get toward the base of this rundown with another top notch zoom, and one intended to freely coordinate the mainstream 70-200mm central length extend. With a steady greatest gap of f/2.8, climate fixing, and picture adjustment, this focal point has you secured from medium fax forward. It doesn't offer a similar reach as the 55-200mm or 100-400mm focal points above for untamed life and other distant photographs, however the optical exhibition is unrivaled in practically all angles.

The Fujifilm 50-140mm f/2.8 is the third zooming focal point recorded here as a result of its constrained central length extend. We welcome the additional span and lower weight of the 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 regardless of the more slow most extreme opening. Also, the 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 offers such a remarkable zoom go, that it's difficult to leave behind for fax lovers. In any case, for representation and travel picture takers who need to cover this piece of the central length range, the picture quality is the best of the fax pack.

15. Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4 Macro ($649)

Fujifilm 60mm f2.4Category: Macro

35mm proportional: 90mm

Weight: 7.6 oz.

What we like: Sharp and very much manufactured.

What we don't: 1:2 amplification implies that it isn't genuinely a full scale focal point.

The full scale focal point alternatives for Fujifilm X Mount are rare, to such an extent that it might frighten genuine large scale picture takers out of becoming tied up with the framework. One nice alternative is the Fujifilm 60mm f/2.4, which hits a 90mm proportionate central length. This focal point is light at 7.6 ounces, sharp, concentrates well, and has a quality Fujifilm construct.

Our primary issue with this focal point comes the "Large scale" differentiation itself: the focal point just has a 1:2 amplification factor, while most obvious full scale focal points are 1:1. Another alternative for Fujifilm X Mount is the Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8, which flaunts 1:1 amplification however is somewhat expensive at around $1,000 and doesn't get as close as we might want. These two "full scale" focal points are alright, however we trust Fujifilm grows its large scale lineup in the years to come.

Central Length Equivalent (Crop Factor)

All through this article, we every now and again reference a focal point's central length proportional, or harvest factor. Fujifilm X-Mount cameras have a 1.5x harvest factor, or all the more explicitly, 1.52 or 1.53 relying upon the shifting math of Fujifilm's site. This implies a 50mm X-Mount focal point will act like a 75mm focal point would on a 35mm camera. The history behind yield factor is long, yet what you can be sure of is that focal point central lengths are portrayed utilizing 35mm film as the reference point. Since the askew of the picture sensor on Fujifilm X-Mount cameras is 1.5 occasions littler than on a 35mm camera, you duplicate the recorded central length of the focal point by 1.5 to decide its comparable.

In the event that you've utilized a full-outline camera or know the central lengths, crop factor can be useful in picking your X-Mount focal points. For instance, the Fujifilm 10-24mm wide-edge focal point is comparable to 15-36mm on a full-outline camera, which really is substantially more valuable than the recorded range. Also, the Fujifilm 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 has an astounding 600mm of reach on your harvest sensor camera. For lucidity and simplicity of correlation, we've included 35mm central length comparable in the item specs.

Prime Lenses versus Long range Lenses

The prime versus zoom discussion is interminable, and as a general rule, both can be great alternatives. Prime focal points for the most part are lighter and prevalent from an optical viewpoint with better low light execution and less contortion, while zooms are considerably more adaptable by covering an assortment of central lengths. It's important that camera makers keep on concentrating on the nature of their zoom contributions, and many are currently planned in light of lovers and experts—particularly zooms that are f/2.8 and quicker.

Fujifilm is one of a kind with its emphasis on premium prime focal points. Numerous Fujifilm picture takers pattern toward being photography perfectionists and spot a premium on picture and fabricate quality, and the X-Mount contributions mirror that. This article is stacked with quick primes, and Fujifilm sharpness, shading version, and absence of mutilation really are great. Therefore, we have more prime focal points on this rundown than expected, and more toward the top.

Focal point Weight

Numerous individuals pick mirrorless camera frameworks for their low weight, and in this way focal point weight positively is a thought too. We've incorporated the heaviness of each Fujifilm X-Mount focal point in the item specs, which range from around 6 ounces for some of the primes to more than 40 ounces for the gigantic 100-400mm fax zoom.

Certainly, if keeping a low weight and profile to your camera set-up is significant, get a prime focal point or two. Fujifilm exceeds expectations with this focal point type in any case, so you're not making any trade offs as far as picture quality. What's more, with a little make preparations will be anything but difficult to convey in one hand and look increasingly unassuming for movement. Zooms by and large are heavier, in spite of the fact that Fujifilm mirrorless focal points still gauge not exactly most tantamount DSLR focal points.

Cost

Fujifilm focal points are not for the small. You can without much of a stretch discover Sony E-Mount focal points or Micro Four Thirds focal points for extensively not as much as X Mount, however you typically get what you pay for in the photography world. Fujifilm focal points are incredibly very much assembled, frequently with metal segments rather than plastic, and regularly made in Japan. Mutilation is low contrasted with different brands and sharpness is high. Consider it along these lines: Fujifilm doesn't generally make low quality focal points and sticks just to the mid-range and top of the line.

Probably the best an incentive on this rundown is the Fujifilm 18-55mm f/2.8-4, which is offered in packs for $300 more than the camera body. As far as primes, the f/2 adaptations are considerably less expensive than the f/1.4s, yet f/2 is pretty darn quick in the first place. To put it plainly, Fujifilm likely isn't the best alternative for individuals on a strict spending plan—you can get a reasonable Micro Four Thirds camera for substantially less than anything from Fujifilm—however you're surely getting something back for your speculation.

Climate Resistant Lenses

A considerable lot of Fujifilm's top of the line and mid-go mirrorless cameras like the X-T2 and X-Pro2 are climate safe, implying that the joints and catch zones are secured and fixed with elastic to diminish introduction to dampness and residue. Comparative security can be stretched out to focal points as well, and Fujifilm has added climate fixing to 8 of its focal points starting at 2017. Among them are our main two decisions, the 23mm f/2 and 35mm f/2, alongside a bunch of other top of the line primes and zooms.

Climate fixing matters if your camera and focal point will be presented to the components for broadened timeframes. Water and residue absolutely can advance into your hardware and be pulverizing from a cost viewpoint if the apparatus is harmed. Both Fujifilm's 16-55mm f/2.8 and 55-140mm f/2.8 are climate fixed, just like the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6. As outside picture takers, we couldn't want anything more than to see some Fujifilm wide-point focal points get climate fixing, however right now none beside the 16mm f/1.4 are.

Outsider Lenses

Huge numbers of our focal point articles host unmistakable portrayal from third-get-together focal point producers like Sigma and Tamron, yet not so with Fujifilm. Truly, there are shockingly couple of outsider choices for X Mount. This might be on the grounds that the framework is generally new or that Fujifilm's local contributions are overly solid, yet there simply weren't some outsider alternatives to consider or incorporate. This may change in the coming years.

We do have the Rokinon 12mm f/2 on this rundown, which is a fun manual center option in contrast to the pricier wide-point choices. Furthermore, Zeiss has discharged a "Touit" line of prime focal points with both Fujifilm and Sony mounts that are interesting, including the Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8, 32mm f/1.8, and 50mm f/2.8. We like those focal points and are colossal devotees of Zeiss by and large, however none were sufficient given their significant expenses to usurp Fujifilm's local contributions.

Connectors

In the event that you have an accumulation of focal points from Canon, Nikon, or Leica and are doing the switch over to Fujifilm mirrorless, purchasing a connector can be an appealing alternative. There are a scope of connectors to look over, including the Fotodiox Canon EF/EF-S to Fujifilm X Mount and Nikon to Fujifilm X Mount. Remember that when all is said in done, focal point connectors may not interface also to the camera's self-adjusting framework as focal points made by the maker itself.

Given the expense and specialized troubles of connectors, we will in general consider them more for expensive full-outline focal points than yield sensor models. What's more, the weight and main part of numerous DSLR focal points will be recognizable on a little mirrorless camera. Most focal points ought to be useable, however they are bigger in size than focal points fabricated explicitly for mirrorless.
