Fujifilm XF Lens Lineup Updated With XF 33mm F/1.4 R LM WR & XF 23mm F/1.4 R LM WR

By on

Fujifilm has expanded its line-up of XF prime lenses with two new optics. The company has introduced the XF 33mm F/1.4 R LM WR & XF 23mm F/1.4 R LM WR with the 23mm updating an existing lens and the 33mm bringing a new f/1.4 offering to the XF lens line-up.

Both lenses are weather-sealed (that’s the meaning of the ‘WR’ in their names) and feature dedicated aperture rings with ‘A’ position locks, and 58mm filter threads. Fujifilm claims that both lenses will offer minimal focus breathing and higher resolution than the company’s first generation of F1.4 primes.

The Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR and XF 33mm F1.4 R LM WR will be available in late November and late September, respectively, for MSRPs of $899.95 (for the XF 23mm) and $799.95 (for the XF 33mm).

Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR Lens: $899.95 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Fujifilm XF 33mm f/1.4 R LM WR Lens: $799.00 at AmazonB&HAdorama.

Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens

  • 15 elements in 10 groups (2 aspherical lenses, 3 ED lenses)
  • minimum 19cm,
  • maximum 0.2x,
  • filter 58mm
  • size φ67×77.8mm
  • 380g

The XF23mmF1.4 R LM WR is a large-diameter wide-angle prime lens that consists of 15 lens elements, including two aspherical elements and three ED elements, in 10 groups, achieving enhanced resolution capabilities over the previous model. The maximum aperture of F1.4 produces shallow depth-of-field. The newly-adopted nine aperture blades also contributes to natural and creamy bokeh. The highly versatile focal length of 23mm makes it an ideal choice for landscape photography and snapshots. The minimum working distance of about 19cm provides close-up capability and enables a dynamic framing, capturing the main subject in close-up while keeping vast background into the frame. The lens also uses the Inner Focus system, driven by a newly-adopted linear motor, to deliver fast and highly accurate AF, attaining focus in as fast as 0.04 seconds*1 to seize a decisive photo opportunity. It also boasts advanced usability with its dust and weather resistant construction and the capability to operate at temperatures as low as -10°C.

  • minimum 30cm
  • maximum 0.15x
  • filter 58mm
  • size φ67×73.5mm
  • 360g

The XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR consists of 15 lens elements in 10 groups, including two aspherical elements and three ED elements, to achieve superior resolution capabilities for edge-to-edge sharpness. Boasting the maximum aperture of F1.4, the lens allows users to produce high-quality pictures with minimal camera shake and digital noise even in low light conditions. The standard focal length of 33mm (equivalent to 50mm in the 35mm format) makes it a perfect choice for snapshots and portraiture that incorporates a natural sense of perspective.

The XF33mmF1.4 R LM WR uses the Inner Focus system, driven by a linear motor, for fast and highly accurate AF. The resulting silent and smooth focusing is perfect for shooting not only stills but also videos. The highly portable design that weighs approximately 360g, thanks to the compact and lightweight X Mount system*1, offers an outstanding mobility.
