There is no shortage of 50mm lenses for Fujifilm shooters, and they cover the entire gamut in terms of design, capabilities, and price. If you are looking for a functional but affordable 50mm lens, check out this great video review of the XF 50mm f/2 R WR.
Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/2 R WR lens. While the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR and XF 56mm f/1.2 R are both highly impressive, the 50mm f/2 is far more affordable, and for users who do not need the most extreme design, it can be a great option. It comes with a variety of features, including:
- One aspherical extra-low dispersion element for reduced chromatic and spherical aberrations and increased sharpness and clarity
- Super EBC coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
- Stepping motor for quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
- Dust- and moisture-resistance
- Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
Altogether, the 50mm f/2 looks like a rugged, functional lens that is great for a variety of scenarios, particularly for anyone looking for an affordable option. Check out the video above for Abbott’s full thoughts.
