Fujifilm 23mm f/2.0 overview

  • 1Description

Compact, fast, and weather resistant, this black wide-angle XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens from Fujifilm is a great choice for those looking for a lightweight and effective imaging kit. Optimized for X-series mirrorless cameras equipped with APS-C sensors, this 23mm lens offers a classic 35mm equivalent perspective, a view much loved by street photographers. The lightweight design and fast f/2 aperture make it a great choice for those looking to stay discreet while shooting. Also, by using two aspherical elements in its optical construction, the lens is able to combat distortions and aberrations for a clear, sharp image. In addition, the 23mm lens uses a Super EBC coating to minimize flare and ghosting.

For fast, accurate focusing this lens utilizes an internal focusing stepping motor AF system which can lock on in as little as 0.05 seconds. Also, the lens offers tactile controls in the form of physical aperture and focusing rings. Additionally, the weather-sealed lens has a rounded 9-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm, this prime lens provides a slightly wide-angle perspective that is useful in a wide variety of situations and well-suited to street photography.
Fast f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers greater control over focus when working with shallow depth of field or selective focus techniques.
The 10-element-in-6-group design includes two aspherical elements to minimize spherical aberrations and distortions for increased clarity and sharpness.
The internal focusing stepping motor AF system delivers smooth, near-silent performance that can acquire focus as quickly as 0.05 sec.
A Super Electron Beam Coating has been applied to the lens for controlling ghosting and flare, and greater image clarity.
Weather seals are placed about the lens barrel to protect against dust, moisture, and temperatures as low as 14°F.
Nine rounded diaphragm blades contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
Minimum working distance of 9" allows shooters to get close to their subjects.

    Fujifilm 23mm f/2.0 reviews

    XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what it should be I bought and tried the 35 F2, and as soon as I learned Fuji was going to release a 23mm to match, I put myself on the list to be notified of its availability. I was so right. The lens is exactly what I had hoped for: light weight, compact, well-made, sharp, and contrasty. I loved the 23 F1.4, but it just seemed too big for the X-Pro cameras, with its big lens hood getting in the way of the image in the OVF. With both these lenses, I particularly like that the lens caps fits on the lens but also on the lens hood, so you don't have to remove the hood to apply the cap. Just a dandy lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new workhorse lens Just came back from weeklong trip along California Coast, where newly bought Fujifilm 23mm f/2 WR was used to take over 50% of my pictures. It seem to be ideal for street and casual photography, where small size and fast focusing is a definitely a great benefit. It produces also excellent results for landscape and architecture photos. Barely visible distortion and perhaps minimal vignetting, not really recognizable on most of the pictures. Very sharp and solidly built, it will most definitely be one of my most frequent travel lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Fuji WR Lens Another great lens from Fuji in the growing WR family. I love this lenssharp, extremely fast focusing, and a very useable focal length. Some have noted a slight softness in the corners up close, but I'm not seeing it. I've tested this lens agains my Zeiss 32 Touit, and Fuji 18-135 WR lens. Using the zoom lens at 23mm with identical f-stop, the 23 prime proved much sharper in capturing detail, which is what I might have expected. In comparison to the Zeiss lens, I felt the 23 WR was a tad sharper, but I liked the color detail on the Zeiss slightly better. But the Fuji lens focuses much faster. If I had to keep only one of these three lenses, I'd keep the 23 WR without hesitation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ideal carry lense for the XPro2, or, XT1 or 2 This is a really compact 35 (sorry, 23) f2 that reminds me of nothing so much as the Leitz 35 Summicrons. I have and rely on the 23 1.4 for shooting in really low light, but in looking at images produced by both the 1.4 and this f2, which is markedly smaller and lighter - though definitely a solid lens, both lenses produce outstanding images. On balance, the 23 f2 seems to focus faster than the 23 1.4, but otherwise it's hard to tell the two apart except for size and the different apertures. This is one of the first times I've invested in two lenses of the same focal length, and I am glad I have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Beautifully made. Mounted on my XT-1 after using the 18-55 for the full time that I've had the camera, I noticed there's a balance and a lightness to the camera significant. Not that the 18-55 is not balanced on the XT-1, the 23mm f2 is definitely better. Image quality with this lens is very sharp across the frame. The aperture ring detents in 3rd stops are just right. Fuji obviously worked to get this right. Glad I opted for the f2 over the 1.4, not because of the cost but because I don't need 1.4 for landscape work and even indoors I feel I can make things happen, its a mirrorless camera right?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fuji is giving everyone a run for their money I am a Nikon shooter from the 80's from the FG to my current d810. Dabbled in some sony mirrorless and some canon dslr and have always come back to Nikon. I like trying new gear have done so continuously for several decades, and still come back to Nikon. Funny though in the film days I switched from Kodak to Fuji, and now it seems quality for quality I'm using fuji. It has not completely replaced my Nikon....yet, but with lenses like this 23 f2 it's well on its way. I find using the xt-2 with the 23 vs my d810 and the sigma 35 art so similar it's uncanny. Way to go Fuji!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend the Fuji 23mm F2 I bought this lens for general use when traveling or just taking photos of friends and family. It offers a moderately wide field of view for capturing locations during travel but you get cab get in close to fill the frame for more focus on a single subject . The fast F2 provides low light capability when a flash is not available or desired. The XT2 with this lens is light as compared with a DSLR and less obtrusive for candid shooting. I recently tried the lens with 720 and 920 nano meter infrared filters for some interesting images. The 23mm does not have a hot spot so the infrared images look great. Its fast, light and sharp and well worth the price in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic everyday lens I own both the 23mm f/1.4 as well as this lens. For those of you deciding between the two, I hope you find this helpful. The 23mm f/2 is a fantastic everyday lens. It is quick to autofocus, it is quiet, it is small and inconspicuous, the IQ is excellent, and it is weather resistant when paired with a WR body. Compared to the 23mm f/1.4 you may miss the push/pull manual hyperfocal distance scale and manual focus ability. If you are a big fan of manual focus as you would with an old film camera, you may prefer the 23mm f/1.4. The 23mm f/2 is a wire focus and does not hard stop once you have hit the extreme ends of the focus scale. Also the 23mm f/1.4 is a stop higher allowing more light and rendering a nice out of focus background for portraits and events. If you shoot street, need fast AF, and want weather resistance get the 23mm f/2. If you shoot events or portraits or shoot more often in low light where that extra stop may be beneficial, get the 23mm f/1.4. When paired with the X-Pro2 or X-T2, the high ISO performance upwards of ISO 12,800 can counteract the loss of a stop with the 23mm f/2 if you do not mind the increase in noise in low light situations. Overall, this lens is fantastic for traveling light and if I could only have one (prime) lens on my camera, this 23mm f/2 would be it.
