26 Mar The “less than perfect” (apparently) xf18mm…
Source: Fujifilm Insider
I’ve always stuck up for the xf18. It is commonly referred to as the weak link in the really strong XF cannon of Fujinon lenses, and while I do not want to start a war with anyone (least of all a troll) I do happen to think much of what is written is…well…bollocks.
I confess, I’ve never seen a bench test on it (does one even exist?) but I’ve read the reviews like many of you have. I can honestly say, my experience of this lens is the polar opposite of many of these reviews and this isn’t the first time this has happened. Similar comments have been written about the xf60mm too, and I swear that lens is the sharpest glass I have EVER owned. I use it more than the xf56 (in fact, I’ve been thinking about parting with that lens) as it now focuses pretty well on the newer bodies – I have an X-Pro 2 – and I prefer the bokeh it produces….
