LENSMATE X-PRO 2 THUMBGRIP [LM-XP2]

Well, what is there to say about this tiny piece of metal except that it does the job very well.  Lensmate are, in the scope of things, a very small set up.   As I understand it, it's run effectively by 2 or 3 people. The size of company vs the quality of product ratio is off the charts.  Yes we are still talking about a metal thumbgrip.

XF35MM F2

Sometimes, the pieces just fit together.  This lens for the price it retails for is simply incredible.  In fact, it's remarkable.  For your hard earned money, you get a premium feeling (built from metal) weather resistant, incredibly fast focusing lens in a lightweight and compact package.  You'll find an aperture ring, which is solid and has in between clicks to help guide you through the range and a nicely dampened focusing ring.

The Images are sharp, have a lovely contrast to them and overall there's a nice tonality to everything.  Everything you would not expect from a lens in this price category.

The only negative is that the metal lens hood which is lovely and just adds a nice finishing look to the lens and camera, is not provided with the lens but costs a grossly overpriced £50 here in the UK.  Fuji do provide a plastic lens hood with the lens which does the job but let's just say it's not going to win any beauty contests.  Anywhere.  Ever.

FUJI X-PRO2 Overview

Me and the X-Pro2 have been side by side for the last few months and it's proven itself to be a trusty companion.  It has the capacity to survive whatever you throw at it, regardless of what the weather condition is outside,  whether you just ate a family sized bucket of KFC and forgot to ask for handwipes and all without complaint.
