Fujifilm's XF 27mm F2.8 R WR adds an aperture ring, a must-have for many X system owners. It's a sensible kit option for the slim X-E4, and a lightweight, all-weather add-on for the X-Pro3 and X-T4. It drives quickly, but you'll note some back-and-forth stutter and noise.

Pros
  • Lightweight, compact design
  • Dust and splash protection
  • Automatic focus
  • Lightweight and compact
Cons
  • Slight flare at f/2.8
