Hello, my name is Nocchi.
With the cooperation of Fujifilm, we were able to review the X-H2 before its release date in a recent article.
I received quite a few positive feedback on social networking sites, and I was glad to have done it, and my heart was filled with gratitude to Fujifilm. I would be happy to review it again if such an opportunity arises.
In this article, I will introduce the recommended lenses that I found to be a good match for the X-H2 when I actually used it.
3 recommended lenses for X-H2
XF56mmF1.2 R WR
This lens was also borrowed at the same time as the X-H2, and I found it to be the best match.
It is a lens designed for the 5th generation sensor, and its images have an overwhelming sharpness that has never been seen before in X mount lenses.
As a medium telephoto lens, it tends to be categorized as a portrait lens, but with a minimum focusing distance of 50cm, it is a lens that can be used for everything from snapshots to table photos.
The body balance with X-H2 is exquisite, and you will not feel any stress when using this set.
XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR
Speaking of compatibility with the 5th generation sensor, we also recommend the XF33mm.
This lens was created as a renewal lens of the XF35mm F1.4 R, which had been called the god lens of the X mount.
It is characterized by its sharpness, similar to that of the XF56mm introduced earlier. Since shooting situations are limited with a medium telephoto lens, this lens is recommended for those who want to preserve everyday scenery.
XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR
Lastly, we introduce the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR, which enables versatile and high quality photography.
This lens has been called “as good as a single focal length lens,” and although it is a zoom lens, it allows you to take reliable photographs every time. The lens is large and heavy, which is a drawback, but if this is not a concern for you, it is a good idea to have one of these lenses.
The lens does not have image stabilization, but the X-H2 has a powerful image stabilization system with up to 7 stops, so there is no need to worry about camera shake.
In this article, we have introduced three lenses that we recommend for the X-H2.
All of them are slightly larger in size and more expensive than the others, but since the X-H2 has a large body and excellent auxiliary functions for photography, these high-end lenses are rather more compatible with the X-H2.
If you want to use compact and reasonably priced lenses, you may be happier with the X-T series or X-E series.
