A Complete List Of Fujifilm Lenses | X-Mount

Complete Fuji X Mount Lens List

To make our live easier I’ve compiled a Fujifilm lens list of all the available lenses for the Fuji X-mount system on a single page along with the best UV filters to use with them. I’ll keep this Fuji lens guide updated and post any Fuji lens rumors I find as well.

These Fujifilm lenses are compatible with all Fujifilm X-Mount cameras. The X-Mount, or XF is Fujifilm’s lens mount dedicated to APS-C lenses.

Here is a list of all the available XF mount lenses that will work with Fujifilm X-Mount cameras. 


Let me know if you like the table of contents of if I should kill it.

Fujifilm | Fujinon Prime Lenses

A list of all the Prime Lenses available for the Fuji XF mount.

Starting with any lens made around the time or after the Fujinon 16-55mm, Fujifilm has updated the lens microcomputer for faster contrast AF. I’ve labeled this as Fast C AF. Faster contrast autofocus will mean the lenses autofocus will have all around better performance since it will be much better in low light or high frequency situations when contrast AF is used.

Fujifilm Lens | XC-Mount Lenses

Fujifilm XC lenses are X-Mount lenses but are built as kit lenses for the entry level consumer cameras. They are made in China and are usually made of cheaper materials.

Samyang / Rokinon / Primes For Fujifilm

I haven’t listed the Samyang lenses but Rokinon, Bower, Opteka are all owned by Samyang and their lenses are developed and manufactured in Korea and China.

In general older Rokinon full frame lenses aren’t great lenses in terms of build quality, but they have gotten better and they they are very fairly price. I own several and haven’t been let down yet. I use that 10mm on my X-T2 as an ultra-wide landscape lens and it works very well. Better than the 10mm end to Fujifilm 10-24mm, but it does have some color cast and vignetting, that is going to be typical with Rokinon Lenses.

Right now, if you’re looking for the best, fast manual focus Fuji X lenses, you’re going to find that with Rokinon / Samyang.

The 85mm f1.4, 100mm f2.8, 135mm f2 and 300mm f6.3 are actually full frame lenses, so they are rather large. 

Reviews of the Rokinon 12mm, 21mm, and 35mm coming soon.

Zeiss Primes Lenses For Fujifilm

Zeiss is one of the top German lens manufacturers with build quality that’s just about up there with Voigtlander and Leica. They makes some amazing lenses but unfortunately still only have three available for Fujifilm. Of course, you can always buy Zeiss M-Mount lenses and adapt them to your Fujifilm, but you won’t get autofocus like you will with Touit lenses.

Meyer Optik Görlitz Fujifilm Lenses

This company filed for bankruptcy. 

Meyer Optik Görlitz has been in the lens making business since 1986. They make some of the finest German built lenses, some would say equal to Zeiss. These lenses are all manual.

Some of their lenses like the 100mm f2.8 and 58 f1.9, produce the most beautiful soap-bubble bokeh you’ll ever see. Check out their facebook group here to see all their amazing sample photos. Absolutely beautiful rendering that is very unique.

With that being said, Meyer Optik sometimes buys the lens designs of Zhong Yi Optics and builds them in Germany with German materials for better material characteristics and mechanical qualities. For example they use higher tech oils and their quality control leads to a rejection of 50% of their core components. Read more here at Sonyalpharumors.

So no, Meyer Optik Gorlitz isn’t just a rebranded Chinese lens, they just use the Chinese design. By the way, lens design for anything 35mm and up was already mastered 50 years ago and can hardly be improved upon. It’s mostly about build quality and precision today.

You can also buy their lenses in M42 mount or Leica M mount so they’ll work on all your mirrorless cameras.

Handevision Fujifilm Lenses

Handevision is a German-Chinese joint venture. These lenses are designed and built-in German, then mass-produced in China with a German level of quality control.

Han = China, DE = Germany + Vision. They are owned by OSD GmbH.

These lenses are made with high quality anodized aluminum, brass and stainless steel. I personally think they are great and highly recommend them.

The Handevision 40mm f0.85 is known to be the fastest lens in the world and they don’t cheat on their stats like many lenses coming out of China.

Chinese Fujifilm XF Lenses


Mitakon / ZY Optics For Fujifilm X-Mount Lenses

Mitakon / ZY Optics is one of the big providers of OEM lenses out of China. I believe they also make the SLR Magic lenses as well.

The Mitakon 35mm f0.95 is a very popular lens and it’s a lot of fun. For the price, it’s fantastic.

I’ve seen a lot of bad lenses coming out of the ZY Optics factories so you’ll need to double check that your lenses are properly centered.

Venus Laowa Lenses For Fujifilm

Venus Laowa has started making some APS-C lenses and they finally have one available for Fujifilm that is getting nothing but praise. I’ll pick this lens up as soon as I can and compare it to the Rokinon 10mm. What’s supposedly so great about these Venus lenses is they have zero distortion, something that is very nice and very rare for ultra wide lenses.

Kamlan Lenses For Fujifilm

The Kamlan 50mm f1.1 is the first Kamlan for the Fujifilm X-Mount. It can be found for around $150.

The lens has characteristics similar to a lot of retro lenses. It’s a super fast low element count lens with 12 circular aperture blades for incredible bokeh and an f1.1 aperture allows for some extremely shallow depth of field. It suffers with corner sharpness and chromatic aberration control.

Kamlan has updated the 50mm f1.1 with a mark II. I’m not sure what’s changed but glad to see they are working to improve it.

7Artisans Lenses For Fujifilm

7Artisan is a Chinese company that makes a really inexpensive third-party lens for the Fujifim X-Mount. They aren’t great but they also aren’t terrible for the price. If you’re looking to experiment with a certain focal length or just looking for lenses you can mess around with the 7Artisan lenses are a lot of fun.

The biggest problem with these lenses isn’t image quality as much as it is build quality. On my 25mm is a mess on the insides, with contact cement showing around the edges of the elements and other spots around the inside housing.

The 25mm is a 7 element lens with 12 aperture blades.

Using Leica Lenses On Your Fujifilm

If you already have Leica lenses or would prefer to invest in full frame lenses, then you can adapt your Leica M lenses to your Fuji camera. Not all lenses work properly with the Fujifilm adapter so I’ve included only a list of working lenses that Fuji has listed on their M-mount compatibility lens chart.

This doesn’t mean other lenses will not work. I’m sure most of the Voigtlander and new Leica lenses would work fine, just with that Fuji adapter there is some risk that the rear element will not have enough clearance. The alternative is to try some other adapters. I’ll list a few that I’ve seen people mention on the forums.


Leica M Mount Lens Adapters

I’ve done some research and have found the best Leica M to Fujifilm X-Mount adapters.

Some adapters don’t allow for the clearance on some lenses. It’s really hard to know unless you own a bunch of Leica lenses and can test them. From my research on the subject I’ve seen most people say even the Fuji adapter is great for most lenses despite what Fuji says on their compatibility list, but some lenses like the Voigtlander 35mm f1.2 has a protruding rear element and will not adapt.


Fujifilm M-Mount Adapter For X-Mount

Best Leica M to Fujifilm X-Mount adapterI use the M-Mount adapter by Fujifilm to mount my Leica M lenses. Very nice construction. Perfect fit to both the camera and the Leica M lenses. There is also a button on the adapter that will instantly send you to the Mount Adapter Settings, so you can quickly select which lens it is you’re using for the EXIF data. – Amazon / Adorama / B&H


Hawks Leica M to Fuji X Adapter With Helicoid

This adapter is pretty cool because it has a built-in helicoid that can push the lens further or closer to the sensor. This should technically allow clearance for any Leica lenses that don’t quiet fit. – B&H



Kipon Leica M to Fuji X Adapter With Helicoid

Like Hawks, this also has a built-in helicoid, so even lenses like the Voigtlander 35mm f1.2 should work. – Adorama



FotodioX Leica M Pro to Fuji X Adapter

Great adapter at half the price of some of the other adapters. Works on most if not all of the lenses I believe. Built with brass and a stainless steel finish. – B&H



Novoflex Leica M To Fuji X Adapter

Novoflex makes one of the best adapters for Leica M lenses. However it is expensive. The matte black interior is supposed to reduce internal flaring. To release the lenses with this adapter, you have to push down the release button, not pull it. – Adorama / B&H


Metabones Leica M To Fuji X Adapter

Also a great adapter for half the price of those other adapter. Some people report the Metabones adapter getting stuck to lenses but otherwise it’s great. – Adorama / B&H




Leica M Mount Lenses

Leica lenses are incredible of course but they are designed for Leica full frame cameras, so they will have a large circle of projection and will produce some really nice quality images without a lot of corner softness or vignetting on the APS-C Fujifilm X-Mount.

Voigtlander M Mount Lenses

There are a few Voigtlander lenses that Fujifilm has confirmed to work with their cameras. I love the 35mm f1.7 and the 15mm f4.5 is also a lot of fun.

The build quality of Voigtlander lenses is exquisite. The focus and aperture feel so smooth and the optics are very high quality. Ziess, Voigtlander and Leica make some of the best lenses in the world. 

A lens not on this list but is also worth adapting is the Voigtlander 58mm f1.4 for Nikon.

Using Vintage Lenses With Fujifilm

I have quite a few vintage lenses that I use for my Fujifilm cameras and they work very well on these APS-C bodies compared to my other full frame cameras.

It seems modern lenses are better designed to work with our flat sensors with micro lens designs, so you typically get better resolution in the corners and edges on new lenses than you do with some of vintage lenses, but because Fujifilm uses APS-C sensors, most of the unwanted characteristics are already being cropped of. So vintage lenses work very well on Fujifilm bodies.

To use M42 lenses you need to get an adapter.


Top 3 Best M42 to Fujifilm X Adapters

Here are the top three best M42 Mounts for the Fujifilm X-Series camera. I’ve listed these three because they come at different quality levels and prices.


Fotasy M42-Mount to Fujifilm X-Mount Adapter

This is the adapter I use. It’s very inexpensive so occasionally you’ll need to tighten up the inner screw mount with a hex key, but it works. – Amazon



FotodioX M42 Screw-Mount To Fujifilm X-Mount Adapter – Helicoid

This is a much higher quality M42 Screw-Mount lens for your Fujifilm. It has the extendable helicoid for closer focusing.

It’s an all metal construction with a chrome base plate. – B&H


Novoflex M42 Mount To Fujifilm X-Mount Adapter

This is the most expensive and beautiful adapter with a matte black internal finish to reduce flaring. It also has precise infinity focus for these M42 mount lenses. – B&H





One thing to be careful of – If you remember being a kid and burning things with a magnifying glass, a lot of these old lenses 35mm lenses will do that if you leave them in the sun wide open on your camera body without a lens cap. Even some new lenses will do it and it seriously only takes a few seconds to burn your sensor or the area around it.

If you’re not using your lens cap, make sure to stop the lens down to at least f5.6 to f8. This typically reduces this burning effect.

As a general rule never leave your camera out in the sun without a lens cap. I’ve burnt the interior of my X-Pro2 a little and my friend has burnt his X-T1. No damage to the sensor, but close calls.


Some cool M42 lenses that work great with Fujifilm

I have four Helios lenses now. The 44M, 44-2, 44-4 and 44-7.

I like the 44-4 and the 44-7 the most, I really don’t like the 44-2 but but it does have a de-click preset aperture that could be interesting for video folk. I just think the 44-2 sucks wide open.

The Helios lenses are based on the Zeiss Biotar design. You’re probably better off buying a Zeiss Biotar, but they are harder to find and a little more expensive.

Helios 58mm 44-2 Review

Industar 50mm f3.5 50-2 Review

I also have the Jupiter 9 which isn’t sharp at all.



Best UV Filters For Your Fujifilm Lenses

A list of the best UV Filters and their sizes for Fuji XF lenses. I’ve listed the filter thread sizes of each lens above.

I’ve personally come to really like B+W UV filters because they are not only very well made, but they have excellent anti-glare and anti-ghosting coatings.

B+W has a few variations to their UV filters. They have the standard Multi Coating filter and then the Multi Resistant Nano Coating. Technically, the Nano Coating is better, but it’s often slightly more expensive. I go for the Nano Coating on my lenses I really care about because they seem to stay cleaner, but multi Resistant Coatings are fine too.

Next they offer two size types, the (010M) and the (007M). This is a measurement of the UV filters all around thickness. (007M) will be slightly thinner.


So how do you decide what B+W UV filter is best for you?

I typically buy Nano Coating (007M) filters. However, on a camera I beat up a lot more like my X100T, I use the standard (010M) filter just because it’s got a little more bulk than the (007M) filter. Nano Coated filters are usually more expensive so you might want the standard coating if you’re looking to save some money.

I actually believe the main difference between Nano and the Multi Coating has more to do with how it keeps the filter glass clean than it does ghosting reduction. However, dirty glass will cause additional ghosting and reflections.

Testing two used filters side by side, I see that my Nano filter reflects light green while the MRC reflects light blue. No real difference in flaring except my Nano filter was cleaner after cleaning both filters, because of this, more light would catch off the oil and dust causing more reflections on the MRC filter.

Difference Between XF vs XC Lenses

XF lenses are typically of higher quality, metal construction and mounts, wider apertures. They are mostly all made in Japan. The exception is the XF 27mm f2.8 pancake.

XC lens are more budget friendly, plastic construction with smaller apertures and no aperture rings. Because of this they are smaller and lighter. Fuji likes to refer to these lenses as casual and compact.
