    Those images do have a really nice look to them, however I already ordered the Fuji 35 f/2 so I'm note sure that I can justify picking up another 35mm right now just for the different look.

    I also picked up a Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens for $150 last night, which should be a fun specialty lens to play with.

    I have or had many Fujinon XF lenses. Every lens is exceptional and at a minimum, the XF lenses were equal in sharpness and build quality to my Canon L lenses. Each lens listed below I have personally used and they are all winners.

    Fujinon Zoom:
    1. 10-24
    2. 16-55
    3. 18-55*
    4. 50-140
    5. 55-230*
    6. 100-400

    Fujinon Prime:
    A. 14mm (sold)
    B. 23mm f/2
    C. 27mm f/2.8
    D. 35mm f/1.8
    E. 60mm .5x magnification macro*
    F. 90mm f/2

    Non-Fujinon Native Mount Lenses:
    8mm Fisheye - Rokinon
    12mm - Zeiss
    32mm - Zeiss
    35mm - Lensbaby
    50mm 1x magnification macro - Zeiss

    That's actually really helpful. Thank you!

    The more I research, the more I'm realizing that I can't find anyone saying a single fuji lens sucks. That says a lot to me about their quality control and engineering.

    I believe the most panned XF lens is the 18mm due to a " ... Pretty noticeable Chromatic Aberration in certain situations. Corner sharpness isn’t all that great until you get to f5.6 or greater ...".
