Fujinon XF23mmF2 WR Review at Lenstip: “Can you ask for more? A Joy to Use and Completely Recommendable.”


Lensip posted its full Fujinon XF 23mmF2 WR review here. Their conclusions:

Small, shapely, weather-resistant, optically good, with interesting optical parameters – can you ask for more? Of course grumblers might carp about high vignetting or coma levels but fighting those aberrations would also mean bigger physical dimensions of the tested lens so removing one of its more important assets. I guess such a price is worth paying in order to enjoy the Fujinon XF 23 mm f/2 R WR as it is. After all the instrument is a joy to use and completely recommendable.”


  • handy but solid and weather-resistant casing,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • sensible image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • negligible longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • lack of distinct problems connected to spherical aberration,
  • practically zero distortion,
  • slight astigmatism,
  • silent, reasonably quick and accurate autofocus.


  • noticeable coma,
  • very high vignetting for RAW files.

XF23mmF2 WR – with Lens Hood

A source (thanks!) just send me a real life image of the Fujinon XF23mmF2 WR mounted on the Fujifilm X-T2.

And let me say this: I just love that tiny XF23mmF2 WR Lens Hood! Looks very different (and even more compact) compared to the XF35mmF2 WR Lens Hood. This with the X-Pro2 will be the perfect Street-Combo!

Both, the Fujinon XF23mmF2 WR and the Fujifilm X-A3 will be annouced on August 25. Live Blogging on FujiRumors… don’t miss it :-)
