Fujifilm XF23mmF2 WR: “One Of the Nicest Lenses I’ve Ever Used. Excellent Sharpness (except wide-open at close distances)”

Evidently Something compared the XF23mmF2 with the XF23mmF1.4. They really love XF23mmF2 WR and among the other say:

  • Really nice lens for street and video
  • Excellent Aperture Ring
  • Silent and Super Fast AF
  • excellent sharpness, even wide open in the corners
  • images get soft when focussing at close distance wide open
  • Bokeh of 23/1.4 is smoother
  • “one of the nicest lenses I’ve ever owned“.

– First Walk with Fuji 23 mm f2 – Mother of Lenses ! at hendriximages: “this IMO is THE must-have lens for every Fuji shooter – if you can only have one lens (like the “desert island lens”), this is it ! You get stellar image quality, it´s fast, silent, compact, light, water resistant & ain´t got no OVF intrusion – at a very reasonable price.

– XF23mmF2: Kevin Mullins Initial Thoughts at f16.click: “The AF speed is incredible.  And I mean incredible to the point that sometimes I have to wonder if in fact the AF has done anything. […] The fact of the matter is, in the low light situations I find myself in a lot, I will end up resorting to the F1.4 lens. The good thing of course, is that for the rest of the day (which is about 90%), I’ll be using the smaller and lighter F2 lens exclusively. This lens is perfect for street photography and perfect for almost all of my wedding photography.”
