FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (14mm, f/4, 1/1000 sec, ISO200)

There is no such thing as one truth when it comes to lenses. At the end it is a very personal thing. Here I want to share my favourite Fuji lenses and why I prefer them over the others.

I can only write about lenses that I own or owned (so far I only sold the XF18/2R (which is also a very, very nice lens)). Here is the list of my lenses:

Fuji XF 14 F 2.8 R
Fuji XF 16 F 1.4 R WR
Fuji XF 23 F 1.4 R
Fuji XF 23 F 2 R WR
Fuji XF 27 F 2.8
Fuji XF 35 F 1.4 R
Fuji XF 56 F 1.2 R
Fuji XF 10-24 F 4 R OIS
Fuji XF 18-55 F 2.8-4 R LM OIS
Fuji XF 55-200 F 3.5-4.8 R LM OIS

Fuji XF 100-400 F4.5-5.6 WR LM OIS

Primes vs. Zooms:

To get this out of the way at the beginning. Today there is no reason to choose a prime lens over a zoom just for image quality. At medium apertures all modern zooms are excellent and practicably almost indistinguishable from primes. As long as you don’t plan to shoot at fast apertures there is no reason to prefer the XF 16/1.4 WR over the XF 10-24/4 OIS (set at 16mm). At f8 or f9 the result will be practicably the same. So why limit yourself to a prime for landscapes?

But beside the fast aperture there
