    I am really enjoying my 27mm f/2.8 R WR lens. I was lucky to have preordered mine as soon as it showed up on Amazon. The demand exceeded the supply which has made it hard to find lately. For me it hits that sweet spot between the 23mm and 35mm, making it my grab-and-go lens for general walking around photography.

    Mentioned in your article, the main limitation for me is the too long minimum focus distance. I’m bumping up against it more than I’d like, but I tolerate it in exchange for the general versatility in most other situations.

    The lack of an aperture ring made the first edition of the lens a nonstarter for me, but this newly revamped model has been my most used lens since I got it.

      Thank you for your comment! Yes, I am on the same boat as you, I skipped the first edition and this updated edition is totally worth it.

    I would love to own this lens once it’s back in stock. For now I’ll make do with my XF27mmF2.8.

      Is it still out of stock? I think it was high demand in Singapore and it was the last piece when I purchased it from the shop.

        The XF27mmF2.8 R WR is not in stock in the camera shops in New York or New Jersey. Even, Amazon doesn’t have any in stock.

          Oh gosh. Seems like it is really high in demand.

    i owned the original version a couple years back and ultimately sold it because i really do prefer the aperture ring on the camera body.

    I ordered the new version back in May, and my copy still hasn’t shipped. patiently waiting!

        That’s a long delay! I hope you can have your copy real soon and enjoy shooting away!
