I sold a bunch of film gear that was not seeing enough use, so I got the XF 18/2.8 R WR in silver for the X-T3. Some first efforts ... post via Darktable 3.2





You mean the 18mm f/2?

It gets some negative reviews online but I really have no idea why, it's a fantastic little performer. I'd say it's biggest downside is that it lacks the pleasant feel to using it, similar to the 35/1.4. Optically it's excellent, lovely and compact.

I think a lot of people don't take to it, or decide to go with one of the kit zooms for that focal length, as it's very easy to find used for a good price. The Pentax DA 21mm is similar in that respect.

Here's a recent one from the 35/1.4.

On a separate note, it seems the Viltrox 56mm f/1.4 lens for Fujifilm will be available by the end of the month. I've seen one review on YT and he praised it. The aperture ring isn't clicky, which is a disappointment, but something I could live with. I'll wait to see if and when the Tokina version appears and compares.

Well, that was a good typo error ... it's the 16mm f/2.8 ... sorry about that. Not the 18mm ... stupid fingers!

OK ... no typo this time out.

My new XF 16/2.8 R WR on the X-T3 ... a bit of night street photography. A concert of Irish folk music in front of a restaurant in Poitiers.

You are not wrong. This one was built to replace another that had been there.
