How We Chose Our Ratings

 

We understand that buying camera gear is a process with a lot of considerations, and we want to give you the best information possible. Our ratings are based on the price, overall product value, and customer reviews. We also asses the general reputation of each product and aim to offer accurate and honest opinions. Below is a breakdown of the top three criteria we used to rate our top Fuji lens picks.

Price: When looking at a new camera lens, it is very easy to fall in love with an expensive product. While that may be a reasonable purchase for some, others may be looking for a less expensive, but still comparable option.

Product Value: Fuji lenses have a variety of price points, but just because a product is inexpensive does not mean it cannot provide excellent value. When determining value, we take into account all the different functions of a lens.

Customer Reviews: Opinions from individuals who have used a product previously are incredibly helpful in deciding on a purchase. We hope the information below helps you feel confident in your final selection.

Buyer’s Guide


The lenses listed above would all be excellent additions to any camera package. Now that we have detailed various product features, ratings, and price points, below are five tips to keep in mind when making your final decision:


  1. Primary Use. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional photographer, it is important to select the proper style lens for your photography needs. For example, action wildlife shots require different tools than landscapes and portraits. Before committing to a lens purchase, make sure you are considering lenses that match your needs.

  2. Existing Lenses in Your Camera Kit. To build off the previous tip, take a look at your existing camera package to see what lens types need the most upgrading. If you have a solid zoom lens, focus on selecting a prime or super-telephoto option to add options to your package.

  3. Budget. Camera tools and toys can add up very quickly. As with most big purchases, decide your budget before shopping around so you avoid falling in love with the perfect lens that is just outside your budget.

  4. Weight and Size. These are two elements that are easy to overlook in the buying process, but definitely come into play when you are carrying all the gear around. Size also factors in when buying other lens accessories such as filters. Choosing to purchase a smaller lens could mean saving money on additional accessories down the road.

  5. Weatherproofing and Autofocus. These are both elements that tend to scale up in quality as lenses get more expensive. Selecting a lens with a good quality autofocus motor may be pricier, but they tend to be faster, quieter, and are built to last. Furthermore, if you plan to take photos in dusty or wet conditions, weatherproofing is an important quality.

Hopefully, this list of some of the best Fuji lenses was helpful for choosing your first or next camera lens. No matter what you decide, have fun and enjoy the process!
