FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/1.4 R Overview

Distinguished by its fast design, the XF 23mm f/1.4 R from FUJIFILM is a general wide-angle prime offering a 35mm equivalent focal length to suit working with a broad range of subjects.

Wide-angle prime lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 35mm equivalent focal length.
Notably fast f/1.4 maximum aperture affords increased control over depth of field and greatly benefits working in low-light conditions.
One aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberrations in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

I've owned this for a while but consistently disappointed in the sharpness. It's hazy yet somehow looks oversharpened at 1.4. Is this normal or did I get a dud?
Asked by: Christopher
The FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens has been one of the Fujifilm lenses with the highest reviews. People find it to be really sharp, but do complain about focusing noise when it is wide open at f1.4. If one was using this lens and not able to get very "sharp" photos, it is possible the lens was actually defective. Lenses do vary from one to another, and it's technically impossible to create every one of them, to be perfect in every way

question

In one of the reviews someone wrote With it's crop factor, the lens focal length becomes a 35mm, however when shooting video it becomes around 40mm. Is that true?
Asked by: Sotirios V.
I don't shoot video with it, so I'm not sure, but this would be more a function of the camera than this lens. And it probably depends on what format you're shooting in.

question

Would you recommend this lens to be used on a X-T20? I plan on buying a 23mm prime lens and prefer the low light capabilities and bokeh with the 1.4 aperture over the 23mm, 2.0. I am willing to spend the extra money for the 1.4 but I am concerned the the lens is too big and heavy for the X-T20.
Asked by: Philip
I use this on my X-T20. It's large if you are used to the 35 or 23 f2 but in terms of balance, the 1.4 is very good. As Matthew mentioned, the image quality, bokeh, and low light capabilities are amazing!

question

Can someone help compare this (XF23/f1.4) lens with the newer XF23/f2? Is the f1.4 sharper and why is it more expensive? Thanks.
Asked by: A D.
I'm very happy with my lens XF23 f1.4. The images is very sharp and clear. I don't know why they released this new template. I suppose it's a matter of market.
