Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR Review – Autofocus

The focusing performance on this lens is far superior to the XF 35mm f/1.4 R. Internal focusing prevents the front of the barrel protruding like it does on the older lens and, unlike the XF 35mm f/1.4 R, which is renowned for making some rather loud whirring noises as it focuses, this newer lens is much, much quieter.

It’s not just quieter – it’s faster, too. Switching back and forth between old and new revealed the focusing speed on this lens is in an entirely different league. When partnered with the X-T10, it latched onto subjects accurately and responsively in a fraction of the time that it took to find focus using the XF 35mm f/1.4 R. Fujifilm has rated the autofocus acquisition speed at 0.08secs and it feels just as rapid as this in use.
