Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR Review

November 23, 2015 | Mark Goldstein |

Sharpness at 35mm

For these sharpness tests the Fujifilm XF 35mm F2 R WR lens was attached to a Fujifilm X-T1 body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
