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:

        I don't miss my other full frame 35mm while I have this lens on my camera, it is razor sharp edge-to-edge, great IQ and bokeh quality is very good considering it is a WA lens and APSC.
        I had the Sony-Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 but this one is as sharp as the Sony with both at the maximum aperture but, it is 2/3 stops faster.
        I also have some other canon 'L' lenses and the performance of this one is on par with them.
        This is my first lens purchase for fuji after the kit lens and I can't be happier. This lens is perfect for low light situations and street photography. Just looking forward to get some other new lenses.

        I have been using this glass for last few weeks. I am mainly using this for street shots. This lens never disappointed me, not even in low lights. The only thing I did not like was the focus clutch, because I have to be aware if if the focus clutch is switched on or off if I plan to switch from Manual focus to the continuous focusing.

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

            I purchased this lens right before a trip to New Orleans and I'm really glad I did. One of the main objectives was to shoot some live music performances, and thanks to this lens I was able to do so fairly well. The lens is very easy to use and very well constructed. I'm very pleased with the IQ but have only used it for a long weekend, that been said so far so good. The lens is a bit large compared to the 35mm, but is not too big or heavy, more like the younger brother of the 56mm. I'm partial to primes, and this lens is a great choice for an all-purpose walk around for day or night, indoors or outdoors. I'm very pleased with my purchase

            I use the 23mm f/1.4 with the fujifilm X-T-10. The lens is part of a top notch lineup of fujinon lenses and a can say without reservation that the 23mm is the best performing lens I have ever used.

              Bought this lens before a trip to Tokyo. I am used to shoot on film; this is the first serious investment I made to transition to digital. Coupled with a Fuji X-T1, it was perfect to capture Tokyo streets. The aperture made it easy to deal with varying levels of light. The wide angle allowed for getting a full view of the vertical cityscape and the crowds below. Highly recommended.

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

                  This Fuji lens is perfect for street use on my XE2 with the hand grip/tripod mount attached, I don't find this lens to big for the XE2 body,I like the size compared to the 18-55 lens as its easier to grip and focus.
                  The perspective of this lens lends its self to street and interior use and with its 1.4 aperture it can be used for close portraits or low light interior shots.
                  This lens much has better contrast then the 18-15 and it really shows with B/W photos.
                  I know there has been a lot of talk regarding the aperture ring being to loose but I don't find any different then Nikon lenses.
                  The only issue is there is no info on finder to tell if the lens is in manual or auto focus mode and I have forgot to check only to miss moment.
                  To sum it up I found this to be the best of the many Fuji lenses and in fact it has not been off my XE2 ofter i started using it.

                  It a great for street photography! A lot bigger than my Voigtlander 40mm F1.4
                  but I love it! I find it to be light weight though some people think other wise.
                  If you're looking for a fast, wide, light lens that's sharp this is it! Just buy it.
                  I get beautiful Black and Whites, it reminds me of my old school lenses from the 70s.

                      I would give this lens 10 stars if such were possible - marvelous contrast and as sharp as it's Leica counterpart. Focusing is quick and smooth and it interprets color extremely well, both ss regard flesh tones and outdoor scenery. Coupled with the X t1, it is as good a professional set-up as I've ever found.

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

                      I own the x100s and love the 35mm (equiv) of the 23mm lens. I also own the 10-24 f4. But this lens is faster, lighter, and slightly sharper. It's the perfect walk around lens. The 35mm is wonderful too but on occasion it is a little too long for my tastes on be xt1. If you only get one lens and prefer primes like I do, this is the one to get.

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

                        With its 35mm-equivalent perspective of a 35mm lens, this lens is very sharp, focuses rapidly, seems relatively lightweight, yet appears to be all metal. It's very wide f/1.4 aperture, it will be especially useful in limited light and/or circumstances where some background blurring may be desired. Pulling the focus ring back toward the camera sets the lens in manual-focus mode, complete with a depth-of-field guide engraved on the barrel.

                            This lens impresses at every turn........sharp, contrasty, and fast, smooth focusing. Like the other Fuji primes, it functions flawlessly with the x cameras and provides pros with a working system which rivals Leica.

                            I bought this lens to use with my X-T1 because I wanted a standard 35mm field of view for everyday photography. The lens is sharp and the AF is fast, but I love the ability to easily switch to manual focus by sliding the focus ring. The distance markers are helpful and the manual aperture ring is nice as well. The only thing I don't care for is the hood, because it doesn't really match the style of most Fujifilm cameras. Other than that, it's a fantastic lens.

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

                              This is my favorite Fuji non-portrait prime lens, and it does portraits in a pinch too! It is fast, takes great images, and is relatively light. I've used it for street photography, portraits, and for shooting the Milky Way Galaxy at night. I have both this and the 27mm pancake and will pick this lens every time. It isn't as light as the pancake but the focal length is similar and with the 1.4 aperture it is so much more versatile.

                              If you are only going to get one lens for your Fuji, this is the one I'd recommend.

                              So i am reading all these great reviews and yes this is a great lens but why is no one talking about the very very loose F stop ring? It does not click in, it freely turns! I have to keep checking that is has not moved when i shoot. I thought my lens was defective and sent it in to get repaired in NJ their Usa main repair place. They checked other 23 mm lenses and they said that is the way it is made!!! really??? That is NOT good! and i will be filling a complaint. Anyone else have this lens and know what i am talking about?

                              At first i didnt like this lens, I was having trouble with it focusing on my Fuji XT-1, I almost sent it back because I thought I had a defective lens....I found out it had a clutch system and once i found out about taht and started using the lens I was totally blown away, there are times where it can focus slowly and thats why I gave it a 4 star rating vice a 5... but I do really like this lens. Great images and true to live color rendition!!
