Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 to Start Shipping February 24, 2022

A few days we reported how Fujifilm officially announced the delivery delay for the Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R LM WR (as well as the LH-XF23 II) to February 2022.

Now stores started adjusting the delivery date and AmazonUS here, Adorama here as well as Moment here now indicate February 24 as new shipping date. We will soon see the same adjustments also at BHphoto here.

I am so happy with my XF35mm f/1.4 R and XF23mm f/1.4 R that I have no plans to upgrade for now. I use the XF35mmF1.4 a lot for personal stuff (from travels to family) and the XF23mmF1.4 was a trusted performer at the recent wedding I shot. I guess I would only upgrade, if in future I’d own higher resolution Fujifilm X series cameras and I’d like to take the most out of them in terms of autofocus speed and resolution.

With all that said, my favorite lenses for the X series remain the new XF27mm f/2.8 R WR and the versatile XF18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 (which once again was my workhorse at a recent hike I did).

Notice Regarding Postponement of Release of “Fujinon Lens XF23mmF1.4 R LM WR”

The new Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R LM WR is getting delayed from the original planned shipping date of November 30 to February 2022. Also the LH-XF23 II is getting delayed.

The reason is not the too high demand this time (like with the XF33mmF1.4), as the pre-orders are in line with what Fujifilm expected. The reason is the delay in parts procurement. You can read the press release below.

At the moment stores still show November 30 as shipping start, but I guess we will see that change in the next few days.

Fujifilm X-S10 New Features Guide for Firmware 2.10 and Little Rant: Why Instax Wide Printer Support Only for X-S10?

Fujifilm has released firmware update 2.10 for Fujifilm X-S10 earlier today (we reported here).

Among the others is adds support for the brand new Fujifilm Instax Link Wide printer and the older Instax Mini Link printer.

With the new firmware, Fujifilm also released a new features guide. Down below you’ll find the link to the updated guide in your language.

Little Rant: only using the Fujifilm X-S10 with firmware 2.10 you can print directly from the camera to the Instax Printer. If you own any other Fujifilm camera, you have to first transfer your images to your smartphone (which is the smoothest thing in this world, right? ;)) and then print from your phone.

I do hope Fujifilm will bring soon support also for the other Fujifilm cameras. I can see many wedding photographers with higher end Fujifilm gear using the Instax Wide Printer during the event. They’d surely love it to be able to print directly rather than fiddling around with the camera remote app.

Rant over… down below the new features guide.
