“Fuji’s fastest portraiture lens”

“Shooting at f/4 to f/5.6 is where sharpness really gets impressive”

2. Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 R Standard Lens for Fujifilm X-Mount System Cameras – Black $600.00
Best Prime Portrait Lenses for Fujifilm X-T1. Fujifilm XF 35mm f/1.4 R: A high-performance standard lens with incredible definition, even when shooting wide open. This lens delivers images with amazing clarity, even with the aperture wide open at F1.4. This unique design delivers images in which the focus is blended with smooth bokeh in out of focus areas. Offering a focal length equivalent to 53mm in the 35mm film format, it is a must-have optic for all X-Series owners.
The 35/1.4 (my favourite lens) is far less prone to flare and I can frame and photograph with (almost) total disregard to the light source (watching only for blown highlights).
