Third-party Lens for X and G mount

Fujifilm lenses, both for the X and G series, are stunning and often the best possible option for their cameras. However, with the imperfections they bring, third-party lenses can create some interesting effects. So, for those of you who like to experiment with Lensbaby lenses, heritage lenses, etc., some of the following lenses may provide some options for creativity. This is just a sampling of lenses. The X-series options focused on higher f-stop versions; of particular interest was the TTArtisan 35mm f.095. The selection of G mounts sampled the telephoto range, which had a smaller form than those manufactured by Fujifilm.
