Presenting a super wide field of view, the GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR from FUJIFILM is an ultra-wide 18mm-equivalent prime designed for the G-mount GFX camera system. Ideally suited for architecture and interior photography, the lens's design employs a pair of aspherical elements to control distortion and spherical aberrations for accurate rendering, and a series of low dispersion elements are also featured for improved color accuracy and clarity. Additionally, a Nano GI coating has been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color. Balancing the optical attributes, the lens also utilizes a linear AF motor with an internal focusing design for quick and quiet focusing performance, and a manual aperture ring also avails intuitive exposure adjustment and a Command position permits making camera-based aperture selections. Additionally, the lens is also dust-, freeze-, and weather-resistant for use in trying environmental conditions.

Ideally suited for architectural, landscape, and interior photography, this wide-angle prime lens offers an 18mm equivalent focal length.
The 15 elements in 12 groups optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for cleaner, more realistic rendering and sharper image quality.
Two extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element are also featured to control color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved color fidelity and clarity.
A Nano GI coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
A linear AF motor is used for quick, quiet focusing performance and an internal focusing mechanism maintains the overall length of the lens during operation and also produces consistent optical performance throughout the focusing range.
Physical aperture ring allows for intuitive adjustment over exposure settings, and incorporates a C (Command) position to permit camera-based aperture setting.
Dust- and weather-sealed physical construction enables working in harsh climates and temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another home run from Fujifilm This is a beautiful lens in every way. It is sharp, perfectly contrasty, appears to be flare-proof and is built with a quality that rivals the best of my old Zeiss and Sekor primes. I am impressed at how Fujifilm has vaulted itself to the top of the lens maker heap in a short period of time. The image quality is simply other-worldly with the GFX50S and this lens paired together. I frequently tell people that if they are doing video, sports or wildlife photography - then the GFX system will not make any sense to them. But if you shoot portraits, architecture, landscapes or product photography then you will not find a better system available today. If you focus on architecture or landscapes in particular then this lens belongs in your kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best medium format wide angle lens The image and build quality of the GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Lens is superb. The amount of details is stunning. DOF is outstanding - it is very sharp from 1.5m to infinity at f16, and from 1m to infinity at f22. Highly recommend to landscape photographers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A competent performer I do like this lens, and it complements the 32-64mm f/4 and 110mm f/2 quite nicely. Build quality seems to be equivalent to the 110mm f/2, i.e., very good. Size and weight is reasonable, and I would rate overall image quality worthy of the asking price. Distortion is very well controlled, contrast and resolution are both impressive from f/4 and resolution peaks somewhere between f/8 – f/11 (although I often find myself using smaller apertures for depth of field reasons). Flare resistance is generally quite good provided you stick to reasonable apertures, although if you want extreme flare, you can have it by stopping down to f/32 and experimenting with the sun's location in the frame. On a related note, I'm not in love with the sunstars coming from the 23mm - not that they are bad, but I prefer the aesthetic of the sunstars from the 32-64mm f/4. I have attempted astrophotography with this lens, correction of comatic aberration at f/4 is good but not perfect in the extreme corners, although I'm not sure it really matters much - that f/4 maximum aperture combined with the high resolution of the GFX's sensor makes this lens/body combination less than ideal for astro. As for more traditional landscape photography, the lens does not disappoint - vignetting is minimal when stopped down, the corners are sharp, I don't see any sign of chromatic aberration.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fujifilm at its best!! *Some background information first* I am using the GF 23 mm lens with Fujifilm GFX 50R. The combined hardware, GFX50R + GF 233mm is light and compact enough to be easy to travel with. The attached images are from a trip to Europe.  I find the battery life on the GFX 50R to be quite satisfactory and typically I run out of steam before I run out battery. *My experience* The lens is beautiful and easy to use, producing incredibly sharp images, practically across the entire range of apertures. I have found no noticeable distortion. The level of detail and the range of light play captured is simply amazing. The combination is a dream come true, a piece of art, Fujifilm at its best!!!  *Image processing* I shoot raw and use Capture One Pro to develop the raw files. Basically, I use CO to bring out some detail in the shadows and to make sure highlights are not clipped. Nothing else, I avoid using other software to enhance the images. After-all, I shoot Fujifilm for the amazing color and natural feel of the images, I do not want to interfere too much with that. I attach two images, I hope you will enjoy them. I would be happy to answer any questions.  *Final words* The GFX50R + GF 233mm combination is perfect for landscape photographers. It encourages you to take a slow pace and get in tune with the nature around you. Knowing how much your lens has the capacity to capture, it makes you stop and imagine the possibilities and what will be the outcome when you finally sit down to develop the raw files. On many photography sites you read that the gear is not important and that instead it is the photographer’s eye that matters the most. This might be true, but my experience with the GFX50R + GF 233mm  combo is that, in fact, amazing gear can help you discover the best in you as photographer because it frees you to imagine without limitation. It is only when the hardware gets out of the picture by not limiting you, that you as a photographer are set free to discover your own limits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Ultra Wide! I like wide angle lenses so this was the second lens I purchase after the  45mm f2.8 for the GFX-50 camera. The Fuji GF23mm f4 is well corrected, very little distortion and yes, extremely sharp. As good optically as the 43mm f4.5 Mamiya 6x7 lens from the film era. Heavy but, not excessively so. Another Impressive well made lens from fuji.
