The Best Lenses for the Fujifilm X Pro 2 and the Fujifilm X-T2

Photographers who use the Fujifilm X series system professionally (or are interested in doing so) will be amazed to know there are a number of fantastic lenses available to use for the system. Of course, despite the fact that the company’s system hasn’t been around for as long a period of time as some others, they’ve been able to do quite a bit in a short amount of time. The Fujifilm X series system has a lens for nearly every single type of photographer–and the system is just going to continue to grow.

We peered into our Reviews index to find some of the best gems.

For Street Photography: Fujifilm 23mm f2 R WR

In our review, we state:

“The speed when focusing with this lens on the X Pro 2 is very impressive. It’s by far the absolute best lens in Fujifilm’s lineup for street photography and candid shooting due to its autofocus speed. When the focusing point is at its smallest, it will be a bit slower. But increase it and what it become a complete speed demon. With that said, let the camera choose its own focusing point and it will seriously surprise you with how fast it focuses.”

For Portraits: Fujifilm 90mm f2 R WR

In our review, we state:

“In the majority of the shooting situations we were in, we shot with Fujifilm’s Velvia, Astia and Classic Chrome film renditions. Granted, those really only apply to JPEG settings but they also apply to the RAW files if you render the profile for the image in Adobe Lightroom.

What we’ve found is just what we expected: sharp image quality performance, some of the best bokeh from the Fujifilm lineup of lenses and great colors that are very true to the film renditions in some ways.”

For Landscapes: Fujifilm 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 R LM WR

In our review, we state:

“Fujifilm’s X-Trans II sensor is known to render some very rich colors with nearly perfect skin tones and the XF 18-135mm helps to translate this very well. There were no cases where I felt the hues were subdued but if you ever feel the need to add in an extra punch of intensity, Fuji’s RAW files are extremely easy to work with in the color channel mixer.”

For Action: Fujifilm 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR

In our review, we state:

“Where the Fujifilm 100-400mm lens really starts to shine is out in the rain. We shot with the lens out in the rain and it had no issues at all when it comes to handling the elements. Of course, this is when paired with the X Pro 2; be sure to use it with a weather sealed camera of some sort. Indeed, it’s more than good enough for professional use.”

For Weddings/Photojournalism: Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8 LM WR and 50-140mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR

In our review, we state:

“With nine aperture blades in the design, you’d expect some beautiful, right?

Yeah, you’ve got it–and that’s why we believe that you shouldn’t bother stopping it down a heck of a lot. This lens exhibits beautiful bokeh that is hazy at best on the wide end and beautifully creamy on the more telephoto end. It’s more than overall good enough to use for professional work such as headshots or commercial work.”

In our review, we state:

“An X-series telephoto zoom with a constant aperture? What a dream! The lens consistently produced stellar image quality that made me with I didn’t have to send it back. Image quality was consistent throughout the zoom range. Whether it was portraiture, architectural or street photo, the 50-140mm performed better than I could have hoped for. Think of it as a souped-up version of its variable aperture sibling. Granted, it comes in 60mm shorter, but that’s no great trouble. The lens would have been longer and heavier had Fujifilm made it 50-200mm.”
