    This seems to be a great lens, but the weird X-Trans CFA is definitely the weak link here. Resolution is below average.

    This seems to be a fair lens and bad technique, but the X-Trans CFA is probably the strong link here. Final sharpness is well below average.

      Sorry, but XTrans is theoretically limited due to their poorly resolved red and blue channels and thus has lower resolution compared to bayer. And of course forget about so called “fuji colors”: they are not XTrans specific but firmware generated.

    I can never remember all the crop factors of the newer cameras coming out ><

    What is this lens equivalent to in 35mm terms ?

    • Jer

      @David G. Equivalent would be 21mm. The lens is built for the APS-C sized sensors in the recent crop of Fuji mirrorless cameras. The multiplier for these lenses for 35mm equivalent is x1.5

    I wonder who would buy this instead of the comming zeiss 12mm, especially if rumors about a 15mm tilt shift lens are true. Though they are allready ultra wideangle, I find 21mm equivalents to be kind of so so…. I much rather have a 18mm equivalent lens + a zoom when going hiking. 14mm isn’t that far away from a standart zoom lens, especially one starting at 16mm (which hopefully fuji will also release)

    $899.95 :) .. no thanks. My old ($100-$150) ais nikkors are better.

    • hexx

      Which one will give you 21mm angle of view on APS-C sensor? Just asking, because I couldn’t find any.

    low quality…
