    I have all of the Fujicrons and think that they are very good in terms of performance, price and ergonomics. I’ve recommended the 35mm f/2 to many of my friends getting into Fujifilm from other systems, it’s just Terrific.

    If there is a desire for me, it would be to go a bit longer than 50mm for the short tele Fujicron. The 75mm equivalent is a bit short, especially if the 35mm is in the bag. If they could just go to 60mm and give an equivalent 90mm lens, then you could team it up with the 23mm for the classic 35mm/90mm that many Leica M users used for decades. A 60mm with all the attributes of the f/2 series would be great.

    FWIW, I do this now with the 60mm f/2.4 macro, but while the lens is sharp enough, the autofocus is very dated for anything other than static subjects in good light.

      Hi Albert, I agree that these 3 fujicrons are the best f2 lenses out there. But I hope to see an even better f2 lenses to compliment the future camera bodies.

      I’m longing for a 70/2.0 to take the place from my 105/2.5 on my Nikon FX. Then I would let my SLR’s go maybe..

    Thanks for taking the time to share. I love it that you promote the genre of ‘street’ so well here. I would love to live in Asia again to take advantage of all those wonderful street markets. Even though after ten years I just got rid of all my Fuji kit and had to swap over to FF (for my paid gigs and events work), I still had a great decade with Fuji and think their small cameras are really great. Though I don’t shoot with Fuji anymore, I always like to read threads relating to their cameras and lenses. Well done and a great read.

    I think these lenses are beautiful, mechanically the best Fuji lenses, optically very good, and they do not need even faster AF or OIS. Thus, there is no need to replace any of these lenses. Fuji needs instead to complete its Fujicron lineup asap with a new 18f2 and a small macro lens. I would prefer a 70f2.8.

    I love the trinity so much, I bought the 90mm and made it a quad!

    That’s a nice f2 compliment to the trinity!

    I love these lenses on a budget. And if you are not regarding the aperture dial, the XC35 is perfect. Today photography is costly. It will be a nice thing if Fujifilm can push the same concept with an XC23, XC50, or why not an XC16

    I started with the XT-2 and 35mm f2 in 2018. I took these on a one year world trip. It was learning on the go. But I throughly enjoyed the experience. There were limitations but the XT-2 photo memories are way better than the iPhone’s. During the COVID locked down, I acquired the H2S, 50mm f2, 16-55mm f2.8 and 18-120mm f4. I am making the packing list for the next long trip. I will carry only a 35-40L backpack. Portability (size and weight) is important. Hence, it will only be one camera and one lens. My photography interests are a mix of everything (people, cities, sites, hikes and treks). I am opened to getting a new lens that fit my needs.

    Less is more! I use the “Fujicron” trio, but even more the 16/2.8. I love these lenses and I don’t think they are ugly or in need for a facelift. They are perfect, as is. The hunt is not for better lenses but for better photos.
