Fujifilm XF 14mm f2.8 R Lens Review:
There are actually a lot of great ultra wide angle lenses for the Fuji X Series now. Companies like Samyang or even Zeiss make great ultra wides in X Mount but so do Fujifilm. They make the XF 10-24mm lens, which is a fun zoom to use but if you’re thinking about a prime, you’ll have to take a look at the XF 14mm f2.8 R lens, which is the lens that I will be talking about today. This 21mm equivalent lens has actually been out for quite a while now but I haven’t had a chance to review it until now. Here are my thoughts on it.
Fujifilm XF 14mm f2.8 R Lens Build Quality:
In terms of overall build quality, the XF 14mm f2.8 does not disappoint. This is a solid lens that shows no signs of inferior workmanship like any loose fittings, creaks or rattles. The XF 14mm’s exterior is metal along with the mount. At the same time, the lens isn’t that heavy or large either. It weighs just 235 g, and it’s actually relatively compact. The weight and size of the XF 14mm combine to make a lens that feels perfectly balanced on my X-T2. I own the Zeiss Touit 12mm f2.8, and I love the optics. I also love the 18mm equivalent focal length but I can definitely appreciate the size of the XF 14mm. It’s so compact and light that you can shoot it one handed very easily if you wanted to. In some ways, I think I actually find it better balanced than my XF 35mm f1.4, which is like an everyday lens for me…
