Camera lenses

Lenses can make an even bigger difference than the camera you’re using. That’s why picking the best ones is so important.

35mm f1.4

This lens is my so-called “bread and butter” – it produces the most beautiful pictures, even though it’s not as fast at focusing as some of the others. You can see the blurry background you can achieve, plus with the wide aperture of 1.4 it works pretty well in low lighting. There is a newer optional available ( Fujinon 35mm f2 ) but it’s hard to give up the 1.4!

27mm f2.8

Ever traveling to a country where you need to keep a low profile? This lens is perfect for that – you get great image quality while also not walking around looking like you have a thousand bucks around your neck (even though you kinda do). This lens came in especially useful during my trip to Brazil.

16mm f1.4

A wide-angle lens is a must in every traveler’s bag. Without a doubt this is the most renowned option by Fuji, especially with its stunning f1.4 aperture. What that means is that you can achieve a blurry background when using it up close, and it’s great for low-light photos.
