i might have the opportunity to get for my X-E1 (and in the future X-E3 or 4) a fuji 35 1.4 second hand for about 300€ here where i live...i don't know the actual condition of the lens, the person selling it states it's working perfectly..

my question would be: is that offer too good to be true? might there be some hidden flaws or defects? should i rather go for the f2 version? should i consider the viltrox 33?

Honestly, I'd just get the XC35 new for 200 Euro

I have one and it's welded to my X-E2.

As a plus, it focuses noticably faster than the f1.4 version, and the X-E1 is slow to AF at the best of times.

well...one reason would be that i want to try a lens with an aperture control ring and secondly, i really don't like how the XC version looks...not an objective reason but a reason nonetheless

I have used the 35/1.4 for over five years now. No complaints from me regarding focus speed; it is fast enough for my purposes (on the X-T1).

Personally I would only choose the XF 35/2 if I needed WR, but that only makes sense on a WR camera, of course.

    • Have used both Nissin Di700 and the Godox ad200, both with a wireless trigger mounted on the camera hot shoe. After seeing the much greater power. better value for the $ and adaptability of the Godox, I have sold the Nissin. Highly recommend getting the optional Godox round head and extension cable which just plug onto and replace the standard fresnel rectangular head. Godox also make some very good magnetic accessories for the round head (filters, snoot, grid pattern / directional acc
    • So things are getting better for some reason since the update. I will say, this update I had a freshly formatted sd card in, and a fresh battery. The first firmware update I didn’t have a card in yet, the phone prompted it and I just clicked. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe not.  Either way. I did the firmware update last week and over the weekend got about 1200 pictures and a few hours of 4k 60/24 in f-log, long gop. So here’s all the quirks I can think of since the last update
    • Well in the end I got the Vello and it worked fine. Even got me TTL!
    • I am new to the Fujifilm system, having shot Nikon for the last 10 years, and I recently watched a video on the X-T4 and messed around with something settings and now I can not get the SS or ISO dials to behave like I would expect them to. For example, the values that I have on the display for SS and ISO are not ligning up with the values on the dials. A = 400 iso, 160 = 500, 200 = 640, etc. Also, I can not set Auto mode on either dial. No matter what I do. Auto aperture mode works on the lens (
