Fast & Wide – Fujifilm XF 14mm f/2.8 lens – REVIEW – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 097

This week on DDTV, Fujifilm XF 14mm f/2.8 lens Review

The XF 14mm f/2.8 R Ultra Wide-Angle Lens offers a 35mm focal length equivalency of 21mm and its angle of view is 89º. Landscape vistas, architectural shots, interiors and even street photography will benefit from the creative perspective and minimised distortion that this lens offers. Light is evenly distributed from the centre to the edge of the frame and it retains excellent contrast and high resolution with little fall-off or distortion toward the edges.
It’s f/2.8 maximum aperture and wide angle mean fast shutter speeds are possible even in minimal light and fast, smooth autofocus is there when needed. The aperture diaphragm blades on all XF lenses are curved and the edge of each blade is rounded rather than cut-off creating a more pleasing effect to your image, especially in terms of the background bokeh. Focus distance and depth-of-field scales are printed on the focus ring to aid composition when emphasising depth of field.

Key Features – Wide angle perspective with 21mm focal length equivalency – High resolution from the center of the image to its periphery – Molded aperture blades and rounded diaphragm opening create pleasing bokeh
