Compact and discrete

Two aspherical lenses are used to ensure a small and compact exterior. At just 45.9mm in length and with a diameter of 60mm, the slim and stylish design allows comfortable operation and draws minimum attention to the photographer, making it the perfect lens for portrait, street or reportage photography.

Fastest autofocus speed of 0.08 sec*2

An inner focusing system, which moves the small and lightweight lens elements, is combined with a stepping motor to produce quiet, accurate and fast autofocus - a must for all snap shooters that need to capture a spontaneous moment.

All metal exterior, weather and dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation

The all-metal construction of the lens exterior ensures it is durable enough for a wide variety of shooting situations. The fine texture of the metal parts further enhance the shooting experience and ensure it can be operated easily and accurately with wet or gloved hands. The lens features a weather- and dust-resistant structure with eight seals on the lens barrel keeping the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors. It can also work in temperatures as low as -10°C.

Two types of lens hood

Lens hoods block unnecessary light from entering the lens to maximise optical performance. There are two types of lens hood available for the XF35mmF2 R WR. A lightweight and compact circular lens hood is included with it. And a classical and stylish metal hood LH-XF35-2 is available for purchase as an optional accessory. Both lens hoods allow the front lens cap to be used while attached.
