Ultra fast glass is always great to have but it can bring its own baggage at times.  For one, it can often mean more complicated designs, and more hurt on the wallet.  It can also mean a larger lens overall.  Sometimes we don’t need the fastest version of a focal length.  Sometimes a smaller lens that still has a reasonably fast wide open aperture is more preferable, and of course, it definitely never hurts if we save a little money as well.  Fuji, being the good listeners that they are, have released some pretty awesome f2 versions of many of their most popular focal lengths.  I reviewed all of them so far, and they are some of my favorite Fuji lenses.  Now, they’ve added one more to the f2 range of lenses: the new XF 50mm f2 R WR lens.  With a wide open aperture of f2, it’s still plenty fast for most purposes, and while this short tele doesn’t give you quite the same focal length as the ultra fast XF 56mm f1.2, which I’m sure many will compare it to, the XF 50mm f2 is a lot more compact.  At $449, it is significantly cheaper than the XF 56mm f1.2 as well, so the question is, is it any good, and can it run in the same circle as the rest of the X Series lenses?  Read below, and find out!…
