35mm or 50mm for shooting cityscapes? Fujifilm X100F

1 year 6 months ago #581670 by Kris W
I just picked up a new Fujifilm X100F and trying to figure out which lens to get first.  I'll be shooting mostly cityscapes with this camera.  

So, that being said, which would you get first?  35mm or 50mm?

Are you sure you bought an X100F? That is a fixed lens camera. It has a 23mm lens which is a 35 mm full frame equivalent. They do make an attachment for the lens that will give you a 28 mm equivalent. If you think you can swap lenses, you should have researched the camera better.

Yeah sounds like you have your camera's mixed up a little there.  Perhaps you ordered out of error and meant to get Fujifilm X-T20?

Agree with the above, but to answer the question, the 35mm....

Why so serious?

Assuming you accidentally posted the wrong camera here.  And you have a camera that will allow interchangeable lenses, then the 35mm would be my pick as well.

I'd go with the 35mm too.

The modest wide angle lens on the 100F is outstanding and just about right for street photography.  Fantastic street camera.  I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Go with the 35mm, it's going to be the wider option and frankly work best for that.

Not much choice if the OP referred to the correct camera. It only comes with the fixed 23mm which is a 35mm equivalent lens.

35mm will make a much better lens for shooting cityscapes as well as landscapes
