XF 35mm f/2
 
Looks like a nice lens at a reasonable (for Fuji) price:

Larger than I expected, though. Too bad.

Yes, Mic, I know you don't care for the 35mm FL on an APS-C camera Icon_smile

Interesting cosmetics, with the taper to the front element.

Supposedly to minimize intrusion into the FOV of the loooooooong-awaited X-Pro 2's OVF.

I didn't find the sample pics all that appealing, must be the FOV Icon_cheesygrin

That and they were crappy pics. I thought they all looked rather soft. I'm sure it's not the fault of the lens, though.

Weather resisrant, nice.
Nice bokeh
35mm on a crop, ick.
silver, ick
I'll bet IQ is great wide open.

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.

I'm sure it's another outstanding lens from Fuji but those seriously crappy sample shots really don't make the case.
