First Fujinon prime lens

A few days ago, during my trip to Hamburg, I decided to get my first Fujinon prime lens. It’s one which is not on my published wish list. But the cash back offer was too tempting.

The Super EBC f=35mm 1:1.4 R lens is the 50mm equivalent on a full-frame camera.

I have read a lot about the 35mm lens. Some love it, some hate it. Some say it’s loud, slow and not always sharp, especially at minimum distance. I can not relate to that. My lens is very quiet, fast (fast enough for my purposes) and focus is always accurate. Always! Aperture 1.4 allows me to to take photos in low light conditions. In very low light conditions. It creates an awesome, soft bokeh and the colors are beautiful, intense and vived.

I love this lens already and I think it’s a very good starting point of my personal prime lens lineup.

 

Here 2 sample photos. No RAW files. JPEG out of camera. No film simulation. Cropped only.
