Fujinon XF high quality compact prime lens. Clear, high fidelity descriptive performance in a compact, lightweight form make this lens a perfect partner for Fujifilm X-M1. With a focal length of 41mm*, about the same angle of view of the human eye, this lens is not only a superb snapshot choice, but also performs well in a variety of scenes from portraits and landscapes to architectural shots. High-speed, high-precision AF is driven by a built-in high-torque DC coreless motor to capture fleeting moments in sharp focus.

Very very glad that I did. First, no, it doesn't lie near-flat on the camera as I'd hoped for but for $250 this is a nice alternative, The XF27 makes it a very light, very inconspicuous, snapshot-looking camera, taking much better photos than people actually expect..
The XF35 is a great lens, too. Beautiful quality to the photos, wonderful in low light, beautiful bokeh. But the XF27 really -does- feel like a different lens and makes the camera feel different. It is sharp and light and because you can boost the ISO so high with Fuji, even low light shots at f2.8 often are turning out, though of course the 35mm is better. The glass itself is a little over 1/2" in diameter, so when you're taking someone's photo it really doesn't look like you're taking "A Serious Picture". Perfect for street photography.
I was very surprised that the 27mm (41mm equivalent) field of view really -does- make a big difference to me compared with the 35mm. I like the 35mm--and it is lovely for portraits--but I have to admit that it is often a pretty tight shot in some places where you can't back up. The 27mm felt like a much more comfortable, more natural framing (supposedly the closest to what our eye sees)--I really did notice a significant difference--and it gives more context for people when you -want- to see the background. Again, nice for street photography.
The lens cap is tiny, with pinch edges, and I use a tether. It takes 39mm filters which are generally pretty expensive. But I got this one from Fotasy Fotasy MRC 39mm Pro 1-D Multi-Resistant Coating Super Slim MC UV HD Filterfor under $10 and it's working well I put a comparison up to show the different FOV between the 35 and 27 (both at f5.6 for comparison). Really glad to have this, perfect addition to any kit I think (at the sale price).
Note: The photos below show two different comparisons. (1) Yard shot, the left is 35mm FOV v. 27mm and (2) the brick wall shows without filter and with filter (dim lighting, but showing the comparisons).
At 78 grams, this is one of the lightest lenses you'll ever use. It's pancake style also adds to its ease of use. So, let's say you are shooting with the X-H1 camera, which is a bit on the heavy side. Putting this lens on that body brings the overall weight back in line with what we would more typically see in a mirrorless camera. It's kind of a strange field of view (27mm) for a prime lens, a field of view that is neither wide nor telephoto. So, in some ways, it is a strange creature. On the other hand, it boasts a fairly wide aperture of F/2.8, so its good for random street shooting or even interior shots where you are not trying to gulp in big, wide vistas. It's neither fish nor fowl, but it IS fun, and it takes great shots. The color richness is not quite up to the best of Fuji's offerings, but its close, and its sharpness more than makes up for it (and, you can always shoot in "Velvia" mode, if you wish, or simply post-process to add some saturation if you wish it). I think most people agree it is overpriced at its retail level, but if you can get it on sale, it's a great lens to have. There are just times you don't want to be lugging around heavy lenses and just want to concentrate on having fun while shooting, and if the field of view can handle what you are wishing to shoot, this lens can't be beaten.
Compare it, though, with the Fuji XF 18mm prime, which is a little heavier (116g), but not much, has a MUCH wider field of view, and has a wider aperture of F/2, a fairly significant difference. I think the XF 18mm is great, and I use it quite a bit, but I might have to say that the 27mm is actually a tad sharper. The 18mm is $150 more expensive at retail level, and is made in Japan. So, it's a series of tradeoffs, like all lenses, and I recommend both.
Before closing, and not to muddy the waters, but another very light and unexpectedly good new (2018) entry into the Fuji lineup is their absolute CHEAPEST lens, the Fujinon XC15-45mmF3.5-5.6 OIS PZ Lens - Black. That lens, too, is made in the Philippines and is not an XF lens, but an XC lens, where I suppose the "C" stands for "Cheapo." But let me tell you: that little lens with all its plastic and its super lightness (136g) is an overperformer in every way. I am certain that many Fuji shooters will ignore it, bypassing it in their mind as a "kit lens" (which it is), and not worthy of a look. In fact, that little puppy really turns out some great shots, and, to boot, has on-board OIS. No, it doesn't have the feel of those luscious "XF" Fuji lenses like the XF 56mm or the XF 90mm (or the XF 23mm or the XF 16mm), and its never going to match what you can do with those much more expensive XF lenses, but if you can get past that, it knocks out pictures that are really quite good. Plus, it gives you some zoom, and if you are shooting with ANY Fuji camera without onboard image stabilization, this lens magically adds it to the package. So, give it a thought when making a purchasing decision.
But back to this XF 27mm. I can't but give it a Five-Star rating, particularly when on sale. Sharp, good color, light, pretty fast focus, and physically small. A great lens.
One More Note...
If you have not yet looked into the Fuji X system (be it the entry X-A5 all the way to the new X-T3 and X-H1) the system is worth your time to investigate. It's one of the most remarkable systems with which I've worked, and the quality of the images are so good that it is almost shocking at times. This really does include the entry camera X-A5, which knocks out superb images even with the plasticky XC 16-50mm kit lens (I use that lens all the time, along with the XF lenses), and when you consider the price reductions that repeatedly occur (the X-A1 with the kit lens has been at $450 for some time now), the system can really be cost competitive. Some of the "XF" lenses get quite pricey, but the reviews on them are almost uniformly excellent, and they can produce images that compete with the best of the biggest brands. These lenses are routinely compared with Zeiss, Schnieder, and Leica lenses, and my own experience lets me see why. The Fuji X-H1 has built-in image stabilization and is simply a delight with which to shoot. Image quality when paired with the XF lenses (and, as I say, even the XC lenses) can be stunning. The platform is worth looking into if you have not yet done so.
If you're not real familiar with APS-C cameras and lenses, this is about a 40mm equivalent which puts it in the "normal" range. You can get a decent bokeh at f2.8 if you're close enough to your subject.
My observation is it appears to be sharpest at f5.6 to f8. The f-stop is set on your camera, not the lens. (Which is the biggest drawback it has if you're use to using the R lenses. But, with a little use you get used to it.)
There is a lens hood available, however it is sold separately and screws on. Also, the lens cap doesn't always grip well, so be forewarned it is easy for it to fall off and get lost. (I found aftermarket ones work better.)
Even with the couple of negative things I've said about this lens, it deserves 5 stars. Most lenses for other cameras in this price range would be junk, but that's not the case here.
