Fujifilm XF 23mm f2 WR lens rumored to be announced for Photokina 2016

Fujifilm is rumored to announce the XF 23mm f2 WR lens for its X-mount mirrorless cameras in September this year.

As mentioned earlier that the manufacturer is working on a 23mm wide-angle prime. Now the highly-trusted sources are claiming that the Fujifilm XF 23mm f2 WR lens will become official this September most likely at the Photokina 2016 event.

The weather sealed wide-angle prime optic will have a maximum aperture of f/2 and provide a full-frame focal length equivalent of 35mm.

Fujifilm XF 23mm f2 WR lens rumored to be announced for Photokina 2016

The XF 23mm f2 WR lens will be compatible with all X-mount cameras, including the newly-announced X-Pro2.

Alongside the wide-angle prime lens, the company is rumored to announce a new XF 33mm f/1.0 and XF 200mm f/2 lenses as well as the highly anticipated Fujifilm X200 digital compact camera for Photokina 2016. We have to underline that all lenses are on Fuji’s unofficial roadmap which means that the company may change their plans for future products.

As Photokina 2016 starts at the end of this September, X-series users are waiting for new products. The XF 23mm f2 WR lens is one of them and will be introduced ahead of the event.
