    Here's a link to the DPR review of the 14mm lens. Spoiler: they like it.

    Fujifilm XF 14mm F2.8 R review: Digital Photography Review

    This lens and the OVF half of the hybrid viewfinder are my two strongest reasons to stay with the X-Pro system and, ironically, they don't work particularly well together. Oh well, such is life...

    I've got my eye on this one, I like to get something in the ultrawide range, but may wait a few months to see what the 10-24 will be like (i hope it is not too big and / or heavy). Definitely looks like a winner though!

    Nice timing, I just picked one of these up used on the forum (come on, UPS!)

    If this lens is as good as it sounds, it may be what keeps me shooting the X-E1. I'm hoping this lens and the eventual 23mm f/1.4 would make a great pair of walkaround primes... maybe toss in the 35mm f/1.4 or 56mm f/1.4 for portraits and tighter shots.

    This is my first prime for the X-E1, guys. Might be here this Friday ...

    The shots from Jordan at OSU convinced me. :)

    It's a good review, must have something to do with DxOmark not having anything to do with it.

    My copy of the lens is coming in from Japan ($100 cheaper than the US)!

    Don't blame me! ;)

    You'll love the lens. Fantastically sharp and zero distortion. Really a remarkable lens.

    Please note that I have set up this thread as a replacement for the old one with identical content which for some reason was acting as a spam magnet.

    Carry on :)
