Just got the X Pro-1 today with a 27mm f/2.8. Focus is a bit different up close - have to use the correction function with the opti finder. This camera is close to a Contax G series, my all time favorite. A little lighter than the G - wish it weighed slightly more, but the lens is small. The 27 has ok sharpness and bokeh.

Lovely image, Akiva. I've been thinking of getting this lens but have been waiting to see more images in this thread. Thanks for posting it.

Fujirumors.com says this lens will go on sale very soon (9th?) and will be sold for $200 (!). If that's true, that is very very tempting.

I saw that rumor as well. It said price would be reduced by $250. I suspect that's a typo and that its reduced by $25 (at least that's the cut currently shown on Amazon). Buy, hey, if it goes to $200, its a no-brainer. After all, this lens has some of the highest test scores of any modern lens.

Yeah, I am skeptical about the $200 number. Any discount would be a temptation. If it really is $200, I guess I have no excuse not to get it for my newly acquired X-E2.

Well bummer for me as I paid the going rate, but that is how it goes.

This is now my default lens for my X-Pro 1. I also use the 18/2 quit a bit for an ongoing project.

Not just the 27mm either but other XF lenses also. I was going to buy the lens soon anyway, perhaps now I'll get the 35 as well.

If is true, Is less than the money I get to swap it with the 23...
A big mistake!
This mean I'll buy it again.

I can easily see it going for $250... most pancakes are not as expensive as Fujis. I'm hoping to see a huge discount on the 23mm myself...

Oh and the new rumor (note: still just a rumor!) says this time the lens discounts are not tied to body purchase so the current X owners are not safe from GAS!!

Edit:
http://www.fujirumors.com/leaked-all...on-fujirumors/

Looks like it is indeed $250 off on the 27mm, making it $200!!

Might customers become skeptical about buying fuji gear at launch prices seeing as if they wait a few months the manufacturer will slash prices at nearly 50%?

Not everything is slashed that much. I would think a lot has to do w/ popularity and warehouse inventory.

U can be the only judge or wait for a sale or jump in now. If u wait, then u are risking not having the right equipment for your particular need...

In general, no matter what vendor, it is a good strategy to wait a bit anyway for cost or other reasons like waiting for the bugs to be worked out of first gen product.

Gary
PS I bought this lens when as soon as they were available and I do not regret it. The 27 pancake's 40ish fov is my preferred focal length. I think in terms of 40 perspective first. It was the lens I was waiting for.

in the menu you need to set it for lens off, move the front switch to manual focus.

In terms of wider than the 27, I have the 14, 18 and 18-55 Helen.

Overall, the 14 is the best of the three. The 18 on the zoom is better at the edges/corners then the 18f2. I don't shoot w/ the 18f2 very often after getting the dp1m and Ricoh gr. If you take the type of shots where u don't have anything critical at the edge it should be fine. I like it, but not as much as like the 28fov from the gr or dp1m. But then again, I don't tend to worry about how good the edges are so long as they are good enough for my needs. Off should be about the sames as othe xf grade x mount lenses since it has the 9 leaf rounded aperture leafs.

i like the 18 as much as the 27…it is plenty sharp.
the 14 is a great lens but bigger…the 18 is the next smallest lens to the 27.

Helen, I can't see the 18mm being bad for you and your style of photography. You can borrow mine if you'd like to try it out for a week or so (Though I know you're not in the area lately).

My 27 from the big sale (ordered back in February) finally shipped, ETA Tuesday.

I am thinking an X-M1 might make a nice rear lens cap for grab-n-go when the XP is too much!

I did not expect this lens to be anything like this good. Here's a bigger version.
