FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/2 R WR Overview

  • 1Description

Complementing the lens itself, the silver FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit from B&H pairs the sleek wide-angle prime with a 43mm circular polarizer filter.

  • FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens (Silver)

    Designed as a compact, walk-around prime, the silver XF 23mm f/2 R WR from FUJIFILM is a versatile 35mm-equivalent lens characterized by its f/2 maximum aperture that strikes and ideal balance between portability and speed. The optical design features two aspherical elements to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also used to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, which provides quick and especially quiet focusing performance. Additionally, the lens is weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

    Prime wide-angle lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 35mm equivalent focal length.
    Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field.
    Two aspherical elements limit distortion and spherical aberration 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.
    Stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, affords fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and video applications.
    The lens body incorporates weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
    Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

  • Hoya 43mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter

    The Hoya 43mm NXT Circular Polarizer Filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

    A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

    This filter is non-coated. Hoya NXT filters have over 97% average light transmission, and are constructed from heat-resistant, high-transparency optical glass.

    Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.

FUJIFILM XF 23mm f/2 R WR Reviews

XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens with Circular Polarizer Filter Kit (Silver) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 129.
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 Great for video I use this lens on my X-T2 and love it. I sold my 23mm f/1.4 because the autofocus in video was too loud and robotic on AF. I could hear the motor and see it moving very unnaturally in all my filming. For stills it was fine, but I needed a better 23mm for video and this lens is much, much better! No more noise, no more motor choppiness, etc. This lens is really great for video and is half the size. Feels much better on the camera than the 23mm 1.4. No regrets and not a big deal loosing 1 stop to me.

Can someone help compare this with the (older?) XF23/f1.4 R? Other than WR, is the f/1.4 sharper? Why is it more expensive.
Asked by: A D.
As others have stated the sheer fact that the F1.4 is one stop faster is likely the biggest factor in price. Apparently any barrel distortion is corrected in the lens whereas its slower(F2) brother is corrected in post. However, the F2 seems to focus quicker for me and the smaller size makes it a perfect match for the Fuji system and a dream to work with when size is a factor. As I see it the only thing the F1.4 gives you that the other does not is F1.4.

I own this lens, but I have to remove the lens hood in order to remove the lens cap, is that by design or just something wrong with mine?
Asked by: Ed T.
Nope! that is how I used to do mine. You can keep the hood attached to your lens and put the cover on top of it. It will hold your lens cap.... however, do not expect that you will get the same grip of how it was when the lens cap is directly attached to lens. :)

Is this lens highly recommended for street portrait photography?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, it's super lightweight, focuses very quickly, and f/2 is plenty bright even at night. The 23mm is just the right in-between focal length that can give you decent portraits, and full length as well as being wide enough for group scenes.
