My Favorite Part of the Fujifilm X-E4 was the 27mm Lens

When you already own a Fujifilm X100V, it's hard not to compare it to the new Fujifilm X-E4. And unfortunately for the X-E4, the X100V is going to win that battle. It's just a better camera.


But there was one thing... I really like the bundled XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR lens that's been redesigned with a new aperture ring and weather resistance. It's a lovely optic that performed quite well.

If you buy the pancake lens with the camera, you essentially get it for half price ($200 in the bundle, $400 separately). And oddly enough, that actually tempted me to reconsider the X-E4.

Now don't get me wrong, the X-E4 is a good camera. And as I mentioned earlier, if I didn't have the X100V, I might buy it with that compact 27mm. But I'm going to try one other combination first. I have a Fujifilm X-S10 on the way, and I'm going to mount the 27mm on it and do a little exploring with that tandem. The X-S10 provides in-body image stabilization, integrated flash, and a nice grip for my large hands.

Stay tuned. More to come on this front.
