ePhotozine: Fujinon XF8mm f/3.5 R WR Review – Highly Recommended

Fujinon XF8mm f/3.5: B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama

ePhotozine published its full Fujinon XF8mm f/3.5  R WR review and you can read it in full here. You can also check out the pro/cons below:

The compact Fujinon 8mm f/3.5 wins on convenience and quality and any price disadvantage is probably justifiable. Ultra-wide angle lenses will not suit everyone, and the 8mm does require a certain amount of confidence in approach. The photographer needs to get in close, then closer, but of course, this does have the benefit of making the image creator more immersed in the ongoing events. This can work well for even street photography, providing we can accept the sheer perspectives that are revealed.

For those photographers who can visualise ultra-wide-angle images effectively then the lens can definitely be ‘Highly Recommended’.
