  1. Now that I finished watching this review, I have a dream. 😀 Watching your review, as detailed as this one, for the Fujifilm XF35mm F1.4R. I got really interested in the lens, when I've read a fascinating story behind its design. I was wondering whether a sensible reviewer like yourself would notice/feel that magic, or it's just marketing.

  2. Thank you for the review. I am thinking about it. I am curious if you know if a decent alternative to this lens on an x platform for me to compare

  3. May have been confusing Vitrox with Samyang? Will check B and H site. But if no AF Samyang, will probably purchase Vitrox iteration ; btw: Christopher Frost gave Vitrox a very good rating as well.

  4. I have been tossing up for some time as to whether to purchase this lens.
    As you note, it is not cheap, but great glass seldom is.
    Given the 1.5 cropping factor, the intended purchase had bee more along a semi portrait lens.
    However, after listening to your, as usual, very thorough review of the Samyang 85 1.4, available in Fuji X mount, I will head that way;

  5. I was able to borrow the Viltrox 85mm in Fuji mount for some testing. Seems like a great lens but I only had it for two days. It even supports AF which is super rare for a 3rd party lenses on Fuji.

  6. Fantastic review. Appreciate it as always.
    Any chance you could do a review for the XF 90mm lens? There's a lack of professional reviews out there like yours on YT and I feel like many could benefit from it!

    Thanks once again.

  7. As a Fuji shooter, I find the thoroughness of your your reviews extremely helpful. Looking forward to the 16-80 review. I would also be interested in the xf 90 f2 for what it’s worth. 👍

  8. I have this lens and one word I couldn’t characterize with it is “soft” (just looking through the comments) I’ve shot several events with it and I always shoot at f1.2. I’ve never looked at my photos and wished it was sharper and sharpness is a key thing for me. This lens is really sharp at f1.2. Just make sure the lens element is super clean every time. It’s a fantastic lens.

  9. I don't mind soft lens, I own the mikaton f0.95 and it's pretty soft with some glow which gives it an unique look.
    This however just looks soft when it needs to be sharp.

    Honestly at this price point and having no other choices, the lens need to be performing better imo.

  10. When I tried the 56mm f/1.2 I found the lens plenty sharp enough, now I don't own the lens because I have the Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 Nokton, which I have adapted to the F-mount, which isn't as sharp wide open as the 56mm.

    Generally though as a portrait shooter, I am not that bothered with sharpness and whilst sharpness has become the watch word for how good a lens is over the last few years, more often than not it isn't a big issue.

    Saying all that, I do prefer the 90mm f/2 as a lens overall, which I find is a better lens, though it isn't as practical in the studio (here the Voigtlander 58mm comes into its own).

  11. I realize my question is off topic, and one you probably can't answer definitively, but that aside, to the best of your knowledge, how would you compare image resolution and rendering between the Tamron 15-30 G2 at 30mm compared to the Sigma 35mm Art? I know it's a strange comparison to ask you about, but it would help me figure out what lenses I want to keep and what ones I want to sell. Thanks so much for your time.

  12. Thank you for another solid lens review. The depth of information is one to archive. I hope in the future we will see some of your reviews comparing lenses/camera system from one manufacturer to another. Thank you for your time and knowledge.

  13. Thanks for the as always very detailed review Dustin. I recently got this lens and was surprised (not pleasantly) how worse it was than my FE 85 f1.8. As you say, Fuji shooters don't have that much of a choice and the 90 f2 and the 50 f2 would all be better choices for sharpness.

  14. Hi Dustin, thanks for the thorough review, as usual. I just wanted to ask an obvious question: How does this lens compare to the Sony's 85/1.8? Does the Sony perform better wide open? I have both systems and am trying to see which side to invest in, and it is not possible for me to rent or try the lenses. Thanks.

  15. Bad review this Lens is not think for video
    With F1,2 you must shoot faces not complete body because dof is too small ! You must close to F2,8 with complete body.

  16. Dustin, always appreciate your critical but fair reviews. I'm primarily a Fuji shooter and love my 56, but I think that those who have not shot on other systems might overlook some of its shortcomings. Will be interesting to see where Fuji's planned 50 f/1 ends up being priced – it may prove to be the portrait prime update the Fuji lineup has needed.

  17. Excellent lens. But I'm very happy that we have the Sigma 56mm f1.4 for Sony E-Mount. In the end of the day, it gets the job done, too. And it's 400€, not 900€.

  18. Another great follow-up. This was one of my earliest purchases when I got into Fuji. The 56 1.2 has not disappointed but I’m also glad it’s not my only lens choice. I find your reviews very informative and spot on with your testing. Again keep em coming brother. Excellent work.
