    I Picked up my 14mm Fuji lens last night and took a couple of shots on the way home.

    Wow this lens sharp. No need for additional sharpening above the Lightroom default, and I couldn't see any distortion. I can see this lens getting lots of use!

    And I have now completed my Fuji kit enough to make my Nikon gear redundant.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Great shots - its an awesome lens. I almost sold it for reasons I can't quite remember, but I'm rediscovering it lately and its not going anywhere!

    Enjoy!

    Yeah, the aperture ring is terribly loose - not sure if that's just a first production run thing or if it will be that way on all of them. I'm not using this lens a lot for street so I'm not getting a huge amount of use out of the snap manual focus ring, but I love that feature on the Olympus 12 and 17 and did on this lens when I used it that way a couple of times.

    I'm probably gonna wear this lens out on the second half of the trip I'm on right now...

    Lovely images, Darren. This lens is a cracker and I wish I'd had mine in time for a recent overseas trip! I look forward to seeing more from you with it.

    I just picked up one last week, lovely lens. My aperture ring is loose as well. I might pick up an o-ring for it to add a bit of friction.

    That's a great idea. I just tried a lowly rubber band in the little gap right in front of the aperture ring and it helps a low. Maybe an O-ring when I can find one to fit...

    Next week I will go to the o-ring store and see what they have that will work. If I find a good one I can mail it to you.

    No need to mail one from Asia - let me know the diameter and I'm sure I can find one here...

    Got this lens shortly after I bought the X E1 and kit.
    Use this one almost always.
