Fujifilm XF 27mm F2.8

The Fuji 27mm 2.8 pancake lens is an oft-overlooked lens in Fujifilms lineup that’s actually rather good.

Back when I had the X-T10, paired with this lens I had just about a Fuji X100-equivalent camera (slightly longer focal length) that was actually smaller than my X100. It’s the combo that prevented me ever feeling a great urge to upgrade my X100.

The lens is obviously very small and, at ƒ/2.8, it’s not super fast but is a great walk-around lens. I used it quite a bit on my honeymoon and although I later traded it in when buying the X-Pro2, I recently picked up another second-hand copy for lightweight shooting days.
