FWIW, Massdrop had this lens for $230 not that long ago. I bought it and was happy. But $180 is even $50 happier.
My oldest XF lens, can't be beat for the price. AF is a bit loud and hunty, but really great if you want a small street lens. I typically use mine on my X-Pro2 (and before that, on my X-E2) that I throw in my backpack or pocket whenever I go out. Great results!
Great lens. Had mine for over 2 years and used when pocketability is needed.
Had this lens for 4 years when I got my xt1. Great lens cap replacement lol with ok Image quality, auto focus is a little slow tho. But the price here on massdrop is not that great TBO
for a gray import, price should be $150 or less imo. eglobalcentral been selling it for $150/€150 for the past few months. check their sites (eu,us,fr), it's still available. Anyway, this is a must-have lens in my daily-carry bag - or back pocket.. lack of aperture ring is not an issue, as imo focus is too soft wide open anyway.. stopped down to f4 , center focus is great. at f5.6 corner focus is also good. can always use the control wheel on the back of the camera to adjust aperture when you need it. better this than a finicky aperture ring that moves every time you reach for the focus ring...

If you are in Australia don't bother with this drop - It's available for under $100 AUD when using the current cashback. I got mine for $70.
Retails at $399. Not $449. I hate when retailers try to exaggerate their sales prices by giving an inflated 'retail'. Is this Guitar Center? That said, I may jump on this. Good enough deal, I'm not terrified about being out of warranty when I save $170+. Also, my grey market Canon that I bought a couple years ago? Never had to get any warranty service. Just saying, I think some of the hand wringing is coming from the same guys who call me up about my craigslist ads asking if I still have the original box for the lens. And if not, can I knock a few dollars off? 'No. It's used, the price already reflects that!' Fuji FTW.

the price at B&H was $399 17 weeks ago when I posted that. FUJI had a $50 off deal.

Yeah. Fuji puts them on sale now and again. I obtained a XF 23 f2 for a hundred bucks off on one of their sales. But the price today on B & H for the 27mm was $449. It seems this for $200 is a pretty solid deal.
Grey market on eBay is cheaper and ships faster too. This drop is also International spec, so... still not competitive enough :(

Probably not, but if you're buying int'l spec / grey market it doesn't really matter where you buy from.

What do you mean by international spec? Its the same lens, just the warranty is different.
Available from eGlobalCentralUS for $233 USD. Use BUY599 promo code for add'l $5.99 off. I used it on a E-2S for street shots. It's OK. I now live in rural MN; not many streets!! The XC 50-230mm on a X-T2 is more useful for me now.
At this price it's an excellent deal. ~$200 less than amazon
Just wondering if anyone has received their lens yet from the June 05, 2018 drop? It shipped on June 18 but still haven't gotten and the tracking doesn't really help.
is anyone able to provide stunning pictures from experience with this lens?
i used to have it but i found it immensely hard to really appreciate it
edit: thanks for all the responses guys - you've confirmed my thoughts about the lens and how underwhelming it was

Thanks! I appreciate the sentiment. In comparing this I most definitely prefer 18mm f2 for the similarity in small-form but the wide-angle makes it much more versatile for my purposes.

Stunning? I don't know. If you pixel peep at 100% on your screen, it's not stunning, maybe. If you make real-world 11x14 (or even 16x20) prints and compare them to lenses alleged to be "better," there's not really much difference. Photography is not about sharpness.

If the product comes with a warranty we will list it at the bottom of the drop page.
This particular product for this particular drop does not have a warranty beyond the 30 days Massdrop gives for DOA or defective merchandise.
This is $275 in Australia..
Nasty87
Yes, it is, you are on Asia market thus you get different price and sometimes items. Looking at vw golf in Australia and Canada for example.
And in terms of shopping, i couldn't find an option to send to Canada

For once something is cheaper in Australia!
Did anyone from the Netherlands/EU order this and have to deal with import tax and if so how much was it, I'm not getting clear answers from the goverment website.
Tijm
In terms of import VAT yes, will you pay shmaybe. Depends of postal company checks your parcel at customs
I got this for 200AUD with Australian warranty... Why are Fuji gears priced so differently from region to region?
But do we have silver version???
the price is GOOD!
Am I seeings things? I just clicked on the link for the drop from my email at 9:30am cst with 7 days left in the drop and now at 10.03am it's inactive.......

I think they missed the whole "Mass" part of the business model on this one. Disappointing.
What was the price this time around?
Does this come with standard warranty?
So sad I missed it... looks like I was 2 hours too late. Any chance MassDrop will be able open up this order again if there's enough interest?

As said, I have a used one in great condition. I'd be willing to let it go for a fair price. Send me an email: onasuss@gmail.com and we can discuss it.

It's back up now if you haven't bought it yet!
I don't get how this works I guess... Just 2 days ago it said that you have 6 days left to join this drop. I come back today and it says drop inactive. Confused!

I think this was again listed without the limit mentioned :( Missed it after it was up for only a few hours, thought I had more time to pick it up. Oh well, I'll be here for the next one.

I made a highlighted note in the drop that it was limited and may end early.
Make sure to act fast on this one next time as it is probably the most popular Fuji lens we have offered so far.
Great lens, Both photos below were taken with this lens and a x-t20

This isn't micro 4/3 is it?
c0mpression
No.
c0mpression
Nope, APS-C
Any chance that Massdrop can get any of the silver lenses? I'd prefer that over the black.
toddf
agree! I'm shopping around the various M43 and mirrorless cameras and they do look much sexier with satin chrome lenses. Especially if the camera is satin chrome and black.
Not a bad price for a grey market lens (read: no US warranty). However, it is a pancake lens, so very little to break. I would do it, if I didn't have one already.

This is what they are selling for used on Adorama & B&H
