I am going to try and pump a bunch of images out this weekend and show off the performance of the lens. When it ships early in 2013 it will have a USA retail of $899.95.
Note the lens focus ring - it snaps back to perform manual focus and reveal the distance scale.
All the images below are with the XF14mm lens.
The writing on the arc across the top is very sharp when viewed at 100%.
The other day I walked into the shoe repair place and took a quick behind the scenes look at their cramped work area with the X-E1 and XF14mm at ISO 800.
I also took a quick pit stop at a beach area on Long Island.
Having the effective full frame focal length of 21mm really makes shooting a joy for those of us who love wide angle views. The lens is sharp and has very little distortion as you will probably notice.
Large pano made from five frames.
