Why I Love This Lens – The Fujifilm XF 14mm f/2.8

By Dan

February 8, 2021

I’ve always loved wide angle lenses. As far as I’m concerned, the wider the better. I also love using fixed lenses, because they’re usually light and compact.  

In my latest YouTube Video, titled Why I Love This Lens, I feature my all-time favorite Fuji wide angle lens, the XF 14mm f/2.8. Not only is this my longest owned Fujifilm lens, it’s also my most used X Series lens. 

In this concise review, I highlight some of the special characteristics of the 14mm f/2.8 and show you plenty of image examples that illustrate how you can use wide angle lenses to capture eye-catching imagery. 

I’ve been using the Fujifilm XF 14mm f/2.8 ultra wide angle lens solidly for over almost 9 years now. It was one of the first X Series lenses I ever got, and it’s my most used Fuji lens of all time.
 
In those 9 years, I’ve found it to be an essential part of my compact, mirrorless photography rig. I’ve taken it on multiple trips and long bike tours, big days in the mountains, and it goes with me pretty much everywhere. If I’m taking more than one lens with me, than the 14 is almost always in the camera bag.

I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

You have done it again! Another triumph.

Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

Thank you, Dan.
