A fast and flexible normal-length prime, the XF 35mm f/1.4 R from FUJIFILM is a 53mm-equivalent lens characterized by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. This design benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also affords greater control over depth of field for isolating subject matter and using selective focus techniques. The optical design employs one aspherical element, which reduces distortion and spherical aberrations in order to achieve higher sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also featured, which reduces flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity.
- X-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
- 53mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16
- One Aspherical Element

FUJIFILM XF 35mm f/1.4 R Reviews
I LOVE IT.
What more can i say. Shooting on the streets at night it never leaves my Fuji X T4.
Switching from Nikon F full-frame to Fujifilm X, I found myself seeking a replacement for my treasured 50mm f1.4D, and arrived here. This is a touch tighter on the APC-C sensor but about the same size and weight. To my surprise, the build quality of this modern Fujifilm lens is superior to even the c. 1990 Nikkor lens, and knocks the socks off of anything I have bought from Nikon in the last 10 years. The quality of this hardware is a real strong suit of the Fujifilm X system. The shooting experience is excellent with this lens. With the in-body image stabilization of the X-S10, this is effectively the fastest lens I have ever shot with. Images are evenly lit, the bokeh is pleasing, and the focus is tack-sharp. This is an excellent lens overall. On the con side, I do miss the lock-open for the aperture and the rubber on the focus ring that was typical of Nikon glass- there is very little tactile difference between the focus and the aperture on this lens, so it's easy to mistake the two in the dark. The autofocus is fast and quiet, and that's a good thing, as this lens is definitely designed around autofocus. I find focusing it manually rather awkward. The focus moves smoothly but it does have quite a bit of resistance to it, noticeably more than on other Fujifilm X lenses I own. The lens also lacks any focal distance markings. Overall though, I am very happy with this lens, and use it quite often.
Class is in session
This lens is as sharp as necessary. More importantly, it has The Sauce. I'm guessing that the bokeh is a product of the optical engineers playing around with how they conquer spherical aberration. As you gain experience with this lens, you start to understand how to place yourself and your subject in a way that exploits the lens' ability to create some wonderful 3D effects. I'm not sure it shows up at the scale B&H sets for images here, but the attached photo illustrates what I'm talking about. I've been doing photography for over 45 years and have had pretty much every brand and type of gear. This is a special lens that is unique within the range of all that equipment.
Small and Sharp
It's a wonderful little sharp and compact lens. I chose this over the 33 f/1.4 for size. The noisy af is only a complaint for videographers and possibly event shooters where extreme quiet is needed. I shoot travel, street, and landscapes with this with no reservations at all from wide open on up. Very happy with this modern classic!
Very sharp but strangely, not always focussed properly - it might be operator error, I still don't know. Overall though, very sharp - when in focus, very silent focusing on X-S10, fast focus on same body, great colour and contrast. Yes, there is somewhat magic rendering to this lens. And I am soooo happy to reconnect with that great focal length, 50mm (full frame equivalent).
Just got rid of 16mm f/1.4 and 90mm f/2: two excellent lenses. I needed something more versatile, more universal and smaller. The 35mm f/1.4 is small, bright. It's also sharp as many have reported. Coupled to my X-S10 and with the latest firmware, it's almost totally silent, really. What they saw about the magic of this lens is true. However, for some reasons, I failed many shots because of focus. Strangely, I focussed at infinity and the pic is sharp only a few meters ahead of me. That's probably user error as I was using zone focus. But never before, in the Fuji system, have I missed so many shots because of unreliable focus. I will go out again tomorrow, and use single point focus. We'll see. But yes, pics can be sharp when the focus is nabbed, and the colours are great. Maybe there's a learning curve here. We'll see if this is a keeper. Oh, I haven't shot 35mm (ff format 50mm) in 35 years. It's fun to zoom with one's feet.
The portraits coming out of this lens are beautiful it's sharp and has a gorgeous bokeh that being said it is a very noisy lens(makes noise when it's focusing) which it's kinda annoying and I did know this before I bought the lens which is why I gave it the 5 stars it's noisy but the portraits are amazing. I use it with the x-t30ii and it pairs nicely with it nice compact size for me.
it is so nice, it makes everything look good
