I was expecting the Pergear 12mm f2 to have a lot more of the imperfections and sort of wild characteristics of their other lenses. But it doesn't. It's actually way tamer, with very nice contrast and pretty good sharpness across the frame. I'm actually impressed. I was not expecting this lens to be actually viable for landscape photography but the potential is there.
One of the great features of the Fujifilm cameras is the ability to control and manipulate the film simulators to give you absolutely incredible classic looks that are ready to go straight out of the camera. This isn't something I've really gotten into too much over the years since I've always liked editing by hand and experimenting with different looks on the RAW files in post. But as I get busier and busier with work and kids and life, simplicity is the new trend in my life.
