My favorite lens is The Fuji 35mm 1.4
If I had to pick ONE lens, I’d go for the praised 35mm 1.4 and it’s this beauty. (read the crazy positive Amazon-reviews of this lens)
I do a lot of travel, documentary and street photography. And for that, this lens is hands-down the most versatile.
The 1.4 aperture makes for incredibly flattering bokeh portraits and great low-light performance for night photography.

The Fuji XF 56mm 1.2 for Portrait Photography
This is THE Fuji lens for portrait photography and street portraits.
For me, this is one of the most fun lenses to shoot with. I have countless videos on Youtube with me doing street photography with the 56mm 1.2.
For portraits, it’s pretty simple. Fuji has one amazing power-house of a lens for portraits that is the Fujinon 56mm 1.2. I use it all the time – even for street portraits and it’s the most fun thing to shoot with because of the focal length and the aperture. Another cool thing about Fujifilm’s XF 56mm 1.2 aperture is that it works well for low-light and night photography, due to the fast aperture that helps to keep my ISO no bigger than 3200.
Fujinon 35MM 2.0 WR
For scenarios where you need weather resistant lenses. Like travel photography and street photography when it rains.
When I’m traveling or shooting in rain, and I’m unsure about the weather conditions, this is my go-to Fujinon lens. And the cool thing about the 35mm 2.0 is that the price is very reasonable!
18-55mm F2.8-4 OIS Zoom lens
– Video & Vlogging
I use that lens because I shoot with Fuji’s X-T3 and this mirrorless digital camera doesn’t have in body stabilization. That’s why my favorite pick of all Fuji lenses for Youtubers and vloggers is the FUJINON 18-55mm OIS.
In the ideal world, I’d prefer to do all my photography and video on prime lenses, but since I need the optical image stabilization – I have to go with the FUJINON 18-55mm OIS.
FujiFilm’s super wide-angle lens
This is a very special lens, the Fuji 8-16mm. It’s a super wide-angle lens and it opens up for so many creative shots. I just got my hands on this and it’s so much fun to shoot with!
If your plan is to do a lot of landscape, architectural and nature photography, I’d recommend the wide-angle zoom lens It’s amazing for cityscapes. It is very pricey, but also one of a kind. Also, this lens is weather resistant (WR) which means it can hold up in tough weather conditions and it’s perfect for taking photos in the rain.
Fujinon XF 10-24MM F 4 OIS
The landscape photographer’s dream lens
This lens is by far the most used Fujinon lens of professional landscape photographers and for good reasons. This lens comes with Optical Image Stabilization which I like – but if you always used a tripod for your landscape photos, then that feature it doesn’t really add much value.
An alternative to the 10-24mm is the 16mm 1.4 lens produces an incredibly dreamy bokeh with its 1.4 aperture. You would pick this if you like prime lenses better than zoom lenses, and if you are in low-light situations, because of the 1.4 aperture.
This is my complete list of my favorite lenses for Fujifilm cameras.
I will continue to develop this list throughout 2019 and when I see new things happening on the Fujifilm roadmap.
Also, if you are into Fuji cameras, it’s worth checking out the Fujifilm Instax Cameras as well.
