DPRTV: Fujifilm XF35 vs XC35mm – Same Performance For Half The Price?

The Fujifilm XF35 and XC35mm are basically identical lenses and even Fujifilm admits it, but it is half the price so DPRTV wanted to compare the two lenses to make sure:

  • Fujinon XF35mm f/1.4 a bit slow to focus
  • Fujinon XF35mm f/2 and XC35mm f/2 have basically the same optical formula
  • Fujinon XF35mm f/2 and XC35mm f/2 focus at about the same speed
  • A Little LOCA on both lenses that is identical
  • Bokeh is identical
  • Identical sun stars at f/16
  • No difference in colors
  • No differences in skin tones
  • Fujifilm says they are the same and they are
  • The XC is plastic build quality and does not have weather or dust sealing
  • XF is a little smoother and well dampened plus has an aperture ring
  • XF comes with a hood and XC does not
