Over 1 month ago I’ve already posted the first image of the upcoming XF 23mm f/1.4 here. Now digicame-info was able to get more images about the next Fuji prime here (tranlsation). As we already know, the lens comes with distant scale and has a filter tread of 62mm. The lens should be announced in a few days.

As you know from this FR-post here, the UK store ParkCameras is taking preorders on the 23mm, 10-24 and 56. The 23mm price there is of £679, £50 cheaper than the XF 14mm. The most expensive XF lenses at ParkCameras are the 56 and 10-24.

And here is how this lens looks like on the X-PRO1.

P.S.: Stay tuned on Fujirumors via facebook, twitter and RSS feed. The IFA in Berlin is ready to start!

You’ll already own a lot of XF lenses and you’ll just have to buy the X-E2/X-PRO2 body.
