  • Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8 R

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    modern implementation of the "old school" design, brilliant optics
    aperture ring a bit too easy to move

    Two SLR Gear REVIEW ERRORS: this is not as much my review of the lens, I just wanted to indicate two errors in the review, possibly a result of copy/paste (once fixed, this note can be deleted by admin):
    1) "manual focusing system is engaged by sliding back the focusing ring to reveal a distance scale etched in feet and meters. While there is no depth-of-field information on the lens" - ? this is a proper DOF scale,
    2) "the 18mm [Fujinon XF 18mm] might be a hair sharper" - unless SLR Gear tested two very unusual samples it is actually the other way around?
