Fuji X-Pro1 review

Fuji's new Fujinon XF 18mm f/2 R, XF 35mm f/1.4 R and XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro lenses produce images that are comparable with 27mm, 53mm and 91mm on a full-frame camera.

The decision to launch the Fuji X-Pro1 with three fast fixed focal length optics underlines Fuji's stated intent to appeal to serious photographers.

Fuji x-pro1 review

We're told that we can expect to see zoom lenses in the future, but that the manufacturer's primary goal is to give professional and enthusiast photographers a high-quality system.

All three lenses have a high quality feel, and the focusing rings turn smoothly. However, we'd like the steps in the aperture rings to feel a little more pronounced and the rings to be just a little stiffer.

Fuji x-pro1 review

According to Fuji, the lens aperture blades are contoured to give a sharper edge and more pleasant bokeh. This appears to be confirmed by many of our test images, since the out of focus areas have a lovely smoothness and highlights have soft edges.

The only fly in the ointment seems to be a few instances of quite pronounced chromatic aberration spoiling backlit edges towards the edge of images shot with the 18mm lens.

We will publish a fuller test and lab assessment of the lenses in the near future.
