Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens Announced, Price, Specs

Fujifilm has announced the FUJINON XF 23mm F/1.4 R lens for its X system mirrorless cameras. The Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens is a prime wide-angle lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm.

Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens offers the same moderate wide angle view as the fixed-lens X100S, but with an extra stop of brightness. The overall design approach is similar to the company’s recent XF 14mm F2.8 R, with distance and depth of field scales for manual focusing, and fully optical (rather than digital) correction of distortion.

Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R lens is ideal for a wide range of applications including portraits and landscapes, as well as everyday photography. The fast maximum aperture of F/1.4 allows users to shoot hand-held in low light conditions and achieve sharp images, while also delivering beautiful bokeh for artistic images.
