Fuji Some quick thoughts after a week with the 18mm 1.4

I've had the 18mm 1.4 for a little over one week. Getting to shoot a little bit of most everything I normally shoot. So now I can write a little about it.

While I was unsure about shooting with this focal length because I've always shot 24mm and 35mm FF equivalents. And really gravitating to the 16mm 1.4 after switching to Fuji. Also, I enjoyed the 2.8 variant for several months last year. So the 18mm(28mm FF) was new territory for me. So far, it has been a great focal length to shoot with. Working very well for everything I shoot.

Speaking to the 18mm 1.4. I love the way it renders images, the sharpness, sunstars, and the smoothness of the OOF area of the image. Or it may be easier to say, the look it gives to the images. The focal length and image quality from this lens works very well for what and how I shoot.

As far as the lens's performance. The 18mm 1.4 lives up to all of the pre release hype and reviews. The AF is instantaneous. Even working well in light so low, one would not actually take a photo. It has a solid build.
