Bert Stephani came back from Tokyo and wrote about his first impressions of the XF 23mm. Here some extracts:

“What’s one of the first things every photographer does when he gets a new lens in his hands? Test if it’s sharp wide open. And yep, that looks pretty sharp to me. […] Vivid colors, sharp edges and smooth transitions between the sharp and unsharp parts of the image. The lens also lends itself to make natural looking black & white pictures too. […] The autofocus behaved fast and confident, even in dull low light. Out of the hundreds of pictures I shot with the lens only a few came out out-of-focus (and then it probably was user error).”

Read the whole review and enjoy Bert’s great shots here.

[P.S.: And in case you’ve missed it, Rico’s first look at the 23mm can be read here.]

There will be an X-pert corner special on September 17 at 05:00 GMT about, as Rico told me, “a new X-mount camera“. For those who follow Fujirumors it won’t be a secret anymore which X (and lens) will be probably announced on that day. So be once more the first to have this mystery officially revealed on Fujirumors!

Curtain up for the X-….!
