Achieving the perfect balance between size and performance, the black XF 35mm f/2 R WR from FUJIFILM is an elegant normal-length prime featuring a compact profile and apt image quality. Two aspherical elements are used in the optical design to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also used to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, which provides quick and especially quiet focusing performance. Additionally, the lens is weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

FUJIFILM XF 35mm f/2 R WR Reviews
You probably want it
It's official, this purchase marks me trying just about every X mount standard lens option. They're all pretty good but I think this is my favorite. The 33mm f1.4 is comparable in image quality, a little too much for me to justify the extra cost-what you get for double the price is an extra stop of light and a little extra performance in extreme use cases. The XC version of this lens is really nice for the cost, but I do find this one to be a little crisper in the center (maybe better quality control?) and quieter to focus. The old 35mm f1.4 and Zeiss Touit 32 definitely show their age and aren't built as well, although I do have a soft spot for look of the Zeiss. One final note, I was torn between this and the 23mm f2 for quite awhile and having used both a lot I can say I think the 35 is a better buy. It just holds up a lot better on the 40 MP sensors, plus the 23 is prone to aperture ring malfunction which I experienced. I realize this review doesn't necessarily say too much about this lens itself, but I often wish I saw more comparative reviews when shopping. This one has maybe the best center image quality of all the competition, and for the relatively low price, small size, and super sturdy build, it's tough to beat. If I did more client work and I needed to be sure my results were always top notch, I would probably spring for the 33.
Compact and Quality
The image quality you get with this lens and the durable build material means that this is a lens I will be using for years to come
Just an excellent all-around lens. Sharp corner to corner at every aperture and small and lightweight.
This lens is perfect for a daily carry. It's compact, durable, and has some heft to it so it feels it can take some dings. Photos are super sharp and clear. The 35mm focal point is perfect for portraits and street photography. I'm honestly a little biased, because the 35mm has always been my go to lens. This is my first prime Fuji lens, switching over from Nikon. I'm loving the Fuji X system!
Really nice lens!
I couldn't believe how sharp the images are!
Nifty fifty for Fujifilm
If you've ever used Canon's classic 50mm 1.8, this has a very similar feel. Lightweight, incredibly sharp, and great depth of field control. Don't skimp, the environmental sealing is incredible and has kept out rain, sand, dirt, and oil.
The photos are very sharp. The lens is also fairly light and works great with my Xpro3. Great lens.
Excellent all around lens
Bought this lens as a general purpose 50mm lens. The fit and finish are superb at any price point, let alone at this price. The bokeh smooth and the detail in focus is superb. Color rendition is superb as well. The weather sealing is a necessity for me. F2 provides plenty of light, I have been able to shoot some very low light music performances with this lens and the results, even with a relatively high ISO, are outstanding. It just looks right on a X-Pro 2 or 3, the proportions are spot on. I would not hesitate to recommend this lens to anyone. It is my daily driver, and I don't see that changing in the near future.
