The XF 27mm f/2.8 is one of Fujifilm’s few actual pancake lenses, the only other being the 18mm f/2 lens. It offers an equivalent of 41mm on a full frame camera, or a 55.5 degrees angle of view. This lens has no weather sealing, is not considered particularly fast, and has a rumor for not having particular good resolution. It has a rumor for being a kind of “meh” lens, only being attractive for its cheap price.

Yet, many reviewers express surprise when they review this little gem. Apparently it has more than what the eyes sees, particularly for the casual street photographer or documentarist, who wants something wider than the 35mm lenses, but still a little tighter than the 23mm lenses. It is a lens which both allows you to take in the scene, but also to get intimate with the subject, combining the best of the 35mm and 23mm worlds. And did I mention that it is a cheap lens? Also, the rumor of not having a particular good resolution might be unjustified. Check more below.
