Digital Camera World published quite a few Fujinon lens reviews recently. Below you can fix excerpts from the reviews and links to each full review:

Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R APD
Full Review Here

Compared with the standard edition of this lens, this more upmarket ‘APD’ version includes an apodization filter to further enhance the quality of bokeh.


  • Smooth bokeh
  • Good handling characteristics
  • Solid build quality


  • Not the sharpest tool in the box
  • Pretty pricey to buy

Fujinon XF50mm f/2 R WR
Full Review Here

Refined handling characteristics and a robust, weather-sealed metal build make this lens an attractive proposition for Fujifilm’s APS-C format X-mount mirrorless cameras.


  • Excellent wide-open sharpness
  • Attractive bokeh
  • Tough, weather-sealed build


  • Fairly modest f/2 aperture rating
  • No optical stabilization
  • Quite pricey for an f/2 lens

Fujinon XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ
Full Review Here

With its small and lightweight retractable design, this standard zoom lens is ideal for Fujifilm’s ‘compact’ style mirrorless X-mount cameras like the X-A5.


  • Compact, retractable design
  • Electronic motorized zoom
  • Inexpensive to buy


  • Mediocre edge-sharpness
  • Construction feels a bit flimsy
  • No weather-seals

Fujinon XF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR
Full Review Here

It really covers the distance in action, sports and wildlife photography, for which the super-fast autofocus system and 5-stop optical stabilizer also play into your hands.


  • Rapid autofocus system
  • 5-stop optical stabilization
  • Extensive weather-seals


  • No AF-on/hold buttons
  • Fairly weighty at 1.4kg
