  • 35mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4 to f/16

  • Multi-Layer HT-EBC Lens Coating

The Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens is a prime wide-angle lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm, making it a suitable lens for everyday shooting. This all-around lens is further benefitted by the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, which is especially useful in low-light conditions and for creating shallow depth of field and selective focus imagery. Also aiding in manual focus control are engraved camera-to-subject and depth of field scales on the barrel that help with setting the hyperfocal distance and pre-focusing techniques.

In regard to auto focusing performance, an internal focusing mechanism is used and revolves around one group of three cemented elements and one aspherical element that maintains high optical clarity while also minimizing overall weight. This group is driven by a high-torque DC coreless motor for high-speed performance that is equally quiet and smooth to benefit an array of shooting applications.

The one aspherical element also works to minimize chromatic aberrations and produce high image sharpness that is further enhanced by the multi-layer High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC). This coating works to protect the front lens surface as well as reduce lens flare and ghosting in order to provide more contrast-rich imagery.

Wide-angle 23mm lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view of 35mm, making it suitable for everyday applications.
Fast f/1.4 maximum aperture is ideally-suited for low-light conditions and for greater control over selective focus and shallow depth of field imagery.
Printed camera-to-subject and depth of field scales benefit manual focus control for setting the hyperfocal distance and for pre-focusing.
Close-up focusing control permits a minimum focusing distance of 11", or when working in normal position, a minimum focusing distance of 2' is possible.
Metal focusing and aperture rings provide an enhanced feel during use and contribute to greater durability.
Internal focusing mechanism employs one group consisting of three cemented elements and one aspherical element to lessen the overall weight and maintain the lens' length.
High-torque DC coreless AF motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance.
One aspherical element and an HT-EBC coating contribute to high image quality with reduced flare and ghosting.
Seven-blade rounded diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality.

      Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

      A very versatile and fast lens, well worth the price. I chose this over the 56mm to get first since it is good on a lot of situations. When it went for $ less I immediately grabbed the chance to get this. The only downside is the lenshood that came with it but no biggie...

            This was the first lens I bought for an X-T1. Really nice, sharp, fast prime lens. Highly recommended. Fuji could tighten up the tollerences on the apeture ring so minus one star.

            Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

            Great lens, little to no distortion, easy in use; like the shift ring from auto to manual focus. Nice contrast performance already at low aperture values. Only one remark, the aperture ring changes position too easy....unnoticed application of f22 is undesirable .

            Very fast. Major league optic. Perfect weight/size balance with X-pro1. Careers can be built upon this one lens.
            If 35mm equivalent focal length is your bag, then this lens can't be beat for the X system. Fuji has done such a good job producing this lens, that now its just up to the photographer to explore its full potential.

              I have found the lens enjoyable particularly for low light situations. The lens feels solid and does not have any loose fittings. This lens is also good for photos in rooms where the wide angle brings more into the frame. No complaints.

                  Coming from Canon L lenses I wasn't sure what I was getting into with the Fujifilm X-Series lenses but wow I am impressed! The image quality is amazing: sharp, great colors, nice contrast. And the lens is built very strong. My one gripe is with the aperture ring; while the click is satisfying it does tend to move about just by handling it. Regardless, this might be my favorite lens to date.

                    High quality prime which integrates superbly with XT-1. Perfect focal length for all kinds of shooting. I love the f-stop ring and then the ability to set it simply to automatic. Yeah, the ring moves easily, but if you like me shoot in aperture priority mode primarily, you are always paying attention to it anyway.

                            A tad heavy, but just a tad. Heft and solid build provides nice balance for framing purposes. Silky smooth manual focusing. Experiencing some hunting on auto-focus but that may be my learning curve as we get to know each other.

                            This is my focal length. Every photographer have one and my eye see in 23mm. I use a X100 for 3 years and I decide to move to the X-Pro1 unhappy with the X-E1 and take this lens on my move. After 3 shoot I was impress by the build of the lens and it optic. And the week after I realize how heavy this lens is, it's near the size and weigth of the X-Pro1 so I can not be impress but it ergonomy of use. The X100 fit in a pocket, nobody notice you take picture in the street and weigth less than this lens with 4 spare battery.

                            But after shooting more with it I felt for this lens. It make such nice picture. I shoot most of the time at f1.4, bokeh are similar between f1.4 and f2 but you have more light. And image are sharp and constrasted. I do not see any chromatic aberation but I shoot in jpeg (yeah I don't like post processing picture) so maybe the jpeg converter remove it.

                            I own nikon prime 35mm f2 D, 20mm F2.8 D, 50mm F1.4D and G and 105mm f2.8 D macro. With all this lens I always step down 1+ stop auperture to have better quality image on full frame (it's worst on DX camera) and I don't have this lack of sharpness with this 23mm lens. Is better than the X100 lens. It's contrast/bokeh wide open remember me my Nikon 35-70 F2.8 D at 35mm on my D700 (another great lens).

                            Also manuel focusing is smooth. Now with firmware update and the X-Pro1 I do not have problem automatic focusing on moving children. I would like beeing able to focus near.

                            So far I'm really impress. This lens is heavy but by far the better prime I ever use. I have hight expectation for the fujifilm 14mm and the 35mm !

                              Love this lens. Great bokeh and superior edge to edge sharpness. Rarely leaves my X-T1.

                              This lens arrived and I was very pleased with the initial feel of the lens ...and using it is magic ..love the quality of the images .....the only flaw is that the aperture ring floats around on its own which can spoil a shot if your not really on the ball.....How difficult would it have been to do it right in manufacture? So only 4 stars for a 5 star lens.....silly isn't it

                              My favorite street photography lense now. It was filling my gap between the 18mm and 35mm lenses I own from Fuji. I love the option to set auto/manual focus directly on the lense.

                              Incredible lens. Absolutely zero distortion. Quick focus, great color. Feels solid and the size is relatively compact.
                              May well be the best lens of the Fuji line-up!
