Verdict

 

The Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 may not be the most attractive lens around regarding its focal length but it is certainly a very capable performer. In terms of sharpness it plays in the highest league especially when stopping down a bit. There is a bit of field curvature which softens images in the last mm of the image frame so for tack sharp results you may wish to stop down to medium aperture settings. Lateral CAs are essentially absent which also contributes to the high sharpness perception. Vignetting and distortions are auto-corrected and as such not an issue for most users. However, the original characteristic is worse here with very high vignetting at f/2.8 and moderate barrel distortion. The Fujinon is a simple lens with few mechanical parts. The build quality is correspondingly high although some may not like the amount of plastic used in the construction. The AF relies on Fuji's first generation motor which is noticeable during AF operations and not all that fast either. From a technical perspective, we don't really find many arguments against the lens. However, just from its specs, it is a little slow and the focal length may not be everybody's darling. Other than the very high performance, dwarfish size and very low weight are certainly differentiators - therefore "Highly recommended"!

Optical Quality: 4/5
Mechanical Quality: 4/5
Price/Performance: 4/5
