Photography: Testing the Fujifilm XT-30 and the the 35mm f2 Lens

I recently purchased a Fujifilm XT-30 along with the 35mm f2 lens. After an initial test I am very impressed with the lens. It is small and light. It focuses quickly and produces sharp and contrasty images.

The XT-30 is a nice walking around camera. It is small and light and easy to use. The autofocus is fast and accurate.

I am sharing two sample images with this post. The first image is of Cherry Blossoms in the beautiful Kenwood, Maryland neighborhood1. The following image is the face of very detailed statue of a policeman in a park in Friendship Heights Village, Maryland.2

I am very pleased with this little lens. The exposure from the XT-30 was spot on. Fuji knows what it’s doing.

  1. ISO 160, f4.5, SS 1000

  2. ISO 160, f3.2, SS 400
