More Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 reviews and sample images available on the web.

This lens joins the existing 35mm f/2 R WR, and 50mm f/2 R WR, a trio of weather-resistant X-mount lineup. The 23mm f/2 offers a field of view equivalent to a 35mm lens on a full-frame camera.

Built with a metal housing, it provides a ring for aperture control and uses a stepping motor that Fujifilm claims is capable of focusing speeds as fast as 0.05 seconds when paired with the phase detection AF systems of the X-Pro2 and X-T2. The lens has won the best csc prime lens award at the 2017 Technical Image Press Association awards (TIPA).

The lens has a price tag of $449 and can be purchased from B&H Photo / Amazon / Adorama stores. Let’s look at the XF 23mm f/2 reviews and samples.

From the PhotographyBlog Review:

Overall, the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens is a great little lens to complement the bag of any Fuji shooter. The small and compact design makes it an ideal travel lens, while the image quality is excellent.

A real-world review by Fstoppers :

At this price point, and with the amount of versatility it offers, the 23mm F2 WR is probably one of those must-have lenses for the camera bag of anyone shooting a Fujifilm X series camera.

From the AdmiringLight Review:

For the cost of the lens, I think it’s a good buy and an easy lens to recommend. But those seeking the best 35mm equivalent for Fuji will likely want to save up for the 23mm f/1.4.  The 23mm f/2 is a good effort from Fuji and will be a nice fit for a lot of Fuji shooters.

John Riley reviews the compact Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens at ePhotozine :

The Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 R WR gives a sparkling optical performance, compact size, weather resistance and high-quality manufacture, which all inspire confidence in this Fujifilm lens. Absolutely worthy of an Editor’s Choice award.
