Recommended lenses for Fujifilm XPRO-1 and X-E1

by Enche Tjin on June 20, 2013

Fujifilm X series has been well received by enthusiast photographers all over the world because its size, design and off course its image quality. Fuji uses special X-TRans sensor that is capable in low light, and its image sharpness are usually compared with full frame camera. These are a few lenses that might help you to get the best out of Fujifilm’s camera: X-PRO-1 and X-E1

fuji-14mm-f28-lensFujinon 14mm f/2.8 $899 This is wide angle lens equivalent to 21mm in full frame camera. It is great for landscape, or architecture photography. f/2.8 is considered large aperture that will help when shooting in low light condition without tripod. Images will be very sharp when you stopped down to f/5.6. It is a great lens for the price you pay.

fujinon-35mm-f14-lensFujinon 35mm f/1.4 $599 This is very compact lens equivalent to 53mm in full frame camera. It will yield image with natural perspective. Big aperture will make it easy for you to shoot in low light condition and isolate your subject by blurring the background. This classic lens is great to have for many kinds of photography from environmental portrait, indoor, event, and street photography.

fuji-55-200mm-lensFujinon 55-200mm OIS f/3.5-4.8 $799 The only telephoto lens in Fujinon lens lineup. It is great for shooting far away subjects, close-up portraiture, hilly landscape, candids and wildlife. It is quite a long lens, but the resulting images are very sharp. Internal image stabilization will help to reduce shake when shooting in slow shutter speed.

fujinon-60mm-f28-macro-lensFujinon 60mm f/2.4 Macro $649 If you loves shooting close-up such as flowers, insects, still life, food photography, this lens will help you a lot because it can focus very close to the subject. Fuji 60mm is also great for portrait and candids. f/2.4 aperture will render smooth background blur.

I am glad that Fujifilm has produces some very high quality lenses so far, and the price of the lenses are reasonable comparing to its competitors. In the future, Fuji promises to produces more lenses to complete its lineup. Fujinon 10-24mm f/4 OIS (wide angle zoom lens) and Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 (portrait lens) are interesting to me :)

That’s all folk. You can get your lenses from Amazon, they have a very competitive price and great service. I hope this can help you and have fun making pictures with the lenses!
