Next on the list to look at is the len’s that accompanies this bad boy.
XF27mm F2.8 R WR
Here we are looking at a weather resistant pancake lens with a sweet aperture of f2.8. We have an incredibly compact option with some sweet image quality. Sharp enough for good bokeh but not too sharp that it’s overly challenging.This to me is the dream for street photography, walking around Brisbane with this pancake lens on the small body is a minimalist dream. Camera in pocket and your off. Retailing for a friendly $699AU
Also on the shop counter ready for pick up is the
The XF70-300mmF4.5-5.6 is a compact telephoto zoom lens. So if you are ok taking a small camera bag out for the day and want to compliment your 24mm pancake lens then the XF 70 to 300 offers the reach you want. Coming in with 5.5 stops of image stabilisation and silent AF motor and it’s compatible with Fujifilm’s 1.4 and 2x Teleconverters. The kit here is one you can hit the road with immediately and also build to as your kit grows. The 70 to 300 will set you back $1449AU
