FUJIFILM 18mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Distinguished by its slender form factor, the FUJIFILM XF 18mm f/2 R is a wide-angle 27mm-equivalent prime featuring a bright f/2 maximum aperture. The compact size and general wide field of view make this lens well-suited to everyday shooting, as well as for landscapes and street photography. The optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements, which reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also featured, which reduces flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy.

Prime wide-angle lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 27mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field.
Pancake form factor measures less than 1.6"-thick for an ultra-portable, versatile design.
Two aspherical elements limit distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    FUJIFILM 18mm f/2.0 reviews

    XF 18mm f/2 R Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Wide I want to compare this lens to the 27mm pancake lens, not because of its focal qualities, but because of its size. It's just a little larger than the 27mm, but it's a much, much, nicer lens. The aperture ring is nice and stiff, but I don't care for how the grip of the ring does not extend all the way around the barrel. I suppose Fujifilm had to design it this way to make room for the engraved aperture markings. Focusing is quiet and the focus ring is smooth when in manual mode. There is little to no light fall-off at the edges, and very little distortion, which is really nice for architectural and landscape shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Little Lens I'm using this as the normal lens for my Fuji X-E2. It is very small and compact and reliably focuses quickly. I like the fact that I can maintain a low profile while shooting in very public places like street markets, outdoor festivals etc. A great focal length for street photography and it is fast enough at f2.0 to use in artificial light. I really like the engraved f-stop numbers on the aperture ring. Being a long time manual film camera guy, I like the fact that as I'm bringing the camera up to face level to shoot, just a quick glance at the top of the camera gives me the current aperture and shutter speed settings. My only reservation is that it does not have image stabilization. but with this short focal length, I can do without.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Happy Street Shooter I recently aquired the 18 f2 XF R lens from Fujinon. Focus speeds are fast and usually dead on even in lower lighting conditions. JPEG images are very good with very little noticeable image quality decline at the far far edges. I real life, very little to worry about stopped slightly down. Raw conversion with PS CS6 is much better than expected. No visible distortion, PS has done a good job with the software correction of the lens distortion. You should have little or no problems with ACR conversion. If you have the 35 f1.4 and find it is a little too narrow, this is a good lens to have and better than the 17mm Tokina 3.5 Nikon mount I have been using before getting this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, compact and sharp Granted most wide angle lens today are compact, but for the speed and size this one is hard to beat. They could have made this slightly faster but it has a shallow depth of field that is great for my purposes. The images are very rectilinear and nearly sharp corner to corner. The Bokeh is rich looking and the softness for digital is remarkable. The metal construction is nice in this day of plastics and the weight is not as heavy as would be expected. Great portability and the f-stop indent every third stop is very refined. Advice, get a filter to protect the lens; you may ditch the hood as it could get in your way but it does offer a firm hand and will keep your fingers out of view.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than its reputation This has probably been my most used lens over the last year or so. One important reason is the classic wide angle focal length of 18mm (27mm), which is my preference in many situations. For me the compact size and light weight counts as well. The 23mm is no doubt optically superior to this lens, but you pay for it in size and weight. Anyway, if this is the worst Fujifilm could come up with optically in a prime lens, it says a lot about the overall quality of their lineup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp with very little distortion Love this lens,but...the design of the hood and lens cap is the worst I have seen. the cap that fits on the hood constantly falls off and you must remove the hood to take the lens cap on or off. Pain in the butt, but the lens quality is so good I will live with it until I find a quality hood/lens cap replacement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This should have been the first lens I bought. I just received this lens and I must say that I am very impressed with everything about it. In spite of its all metal construction, it is incredibly light. The fit and finish is nothing less than I have come to expect from Fuji in general; excellent. When I mounted the lens on my XPro 1 and pressed the shutter release button, the lens responded and acquired focus immediately. The images delivered by this lens are tack sharp and the color is spot-on. The booked is smooth and pleasing to the eye. There is also just the right amount of wide angle distortion for close-ups and street photography. This is a lens that forces you to get in a little closer than you might be comfortable but the results are well worth the effort! there is only one improvement that might be considered, it would to change the shape and size of the aperture ring for us photogs who are blessed with big hands. All in all, this is an excellent piece of gear and definitely a keeper.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from X Pro 1 18 mm lens Just purchased this for the X Pro 1 ( which is also relatively new for me) . I took about 100 shots today in windy, bright west Texas mountain environs. Overall, I liked the way the lens worked and operated. Focusing was fast (new firm ware) and my previews of the photos this eve show sharp images.i have not run them through photoshop yet.. So improvement will be made. Overall, I am very impressed with this camera and the 35 mm lens I originally purchased... This lens does not disappoint in comparison. I really was impressed with this lens utilizing the panoramic mode in the camera. Very nice!
