Sharp and lovely

Love how sharp it is. Photos pop a bit more than my tamron and the bokeh is really beautiful. Fast focusing, but the X-H2S I pair it with some times still hunts. Still not as fast as my R6 with the 24-105mm but it definitely produces more stylish photos.

Work of art!!

By Zachary

When it comes to image quality, I have some fairly high expectations. Prior to dipping my toes into fuji land I had (and still have) the nikon D850, D810 and numerous gold ring nikon glass that was some of the best they ever made for their f mount lineup. Because of this I waa hesitant to jump back to a crop sensor (X-T4) and this lens, but i took the plunge as I wanted a fun every day camera for family and light travel stuff. Needless to say, this lens has blown my expectations out of the water!! It's insanely sharp at all apertures throughout the entire frame and has no CA issues whatsoever. I have never experienced a crop sensor camera and lens combo this disgustingly good. To the point where I've considered selling my nikon gear as it does far more dust collecting nowadays! Now it's time for me to go post this same review on the fuji 33 1.4 LM lens as that one is equally as incredible! Safe to say that fuji has blown me away with these beautiful works of art! Keep up the great work fuji!!!

Versatile and excellent IQ

By Robert

I have the f2 version. Never really liked the IQ so rarely used it. I bought this upgraded 23mm hoping I would like it since the focal length is very versatile ( I do love 50 mm equivaled as well for most things). Was very surprised! The pics have a look I really liked, that special something I missed in the F2 version (though a really great portable lens) I was in the EU and this was the only lens I brought with me for my XT2 (yes, I will upgrade soon but love it!). Super fast focus, love the F1.4 and not too big. I like the feel too! Congratulations Fuji!

Excellent single lens solution for multi-purpose

By Kumar

I was looking to buy one of these new f1.4 WR lenses for travel. Bought this new 23mm f1.4 WR lens. Image quality is stunning, excellent sharpness and bokeh. Very good close focus distance and good magnification factor. I was debating between this and 18mm f1.4 to use as single travel lens. I did not even try 33mm as single travel lens solution which will be good mostly for portraits and very tight for indoor photos (based on past experience with my 35mm). Tried both 18mm and 23mm, here are my thinking after doing extensive testing (JPEGs straight from camera) with both lenses. Note that this is just my experience from my tests. * 18mm is the first lens I purchased and I was stunned by image quality, particularly sharpness. * Later bought 23mm and did lot of comparison between these 2 lenses. To my surprise the new 23mm is slightly more sharper. The reason I was surprised is, I see in many reviews about 18mm f1.4, distortion is optically corrected better than 23mm. I was hoping 18mm should be sharper than 23mm. * Took pictures from both lens from same distance as well as framed the same picture with same focus point. Both cases, 23mm came out slightly better in sharpness in all my comparisons. Note that you can see the difference only if you blow up the image to 200% in high resolution bigger monitor, do pixel peep and compare side by side. * I like the skin tone that 23mm produce (slightly better) in most portrait pictures. * closeup portraits (head/shoulder level) visibly distorted in 18mm. Do not see this in 23mm. Don't get me wrong, you will be very happy with 18mm if you just do half/full length portraits. * 23mm aperture ring and lens hood are slightly tighter than 18mm. My 16-55mm lens aperture ring is even more tighter than both lenses. I unintentionally changed the aperture ring of 18mm few times. * Only minor issue I see with 23mm is (not sure if this is even an issue), when taking portraits background objects look closer. This could be because of higher magnification in 23mm. * Overall IQ of both lens are pretty close. If you are inclined more towards capturing more of environment/landscape along with/without half/full length portraits go for 18mm. If you are inclined towards more close up portraits along with some environment, go with 23mm. * For slightly extra sharpness and undistorted closeup portraits I decided to keep 23mm WR. If you are not pixel peeper, you will not see any difference in sharpness of both lenses.

Wonderful Lens

I'm a hobbyist who occasionally does portraits on the side. This has quickly become one of my favorites for the X-T4. I think fans of the 33mm f 1.4 will equally like this focal length. Linear motor makes it quick and quiet enough too.

Legendary

By Matt

This lens is legendary. Sharp and contrasty wide open at f/1.4, improves through f/2-2/8 or so and still great at f/11. This is probably the best my 26mp sensor can look - in good light this lens is stunning and sharp. Great bokeh (very slight, typically unimportant onion ringing, however, when you PEEP). Close focusing - I love lenses that focus close and get good magnification like this one. It is a quasi macro type experience that makes it more flexible. Plus, I don't have to worry I'll put it into a hunting/focusing fit because a subject moved within the MFD. AF is fast and accurate, linear motor is nearly silent. I think I'm getting higher hit rates and good focusing speed relative to other Fuji lenses, even in crappier light. That alone makes this lens a go-to compared to others I own. Lens is pretty small and light, but feels solid in hand - no issues bumping rings, stores well, well fitting lens hood. Great quality feel overall. Solid clicks from the aperture ring, manual focus ring is well damped (not too slow, or too fast). Aperture ring seems pointless however - it only locks the camera into auto. The only con is the high price - $900 is a lot to swallow for what this is, ultimately. Used at around $700 this lens is a better value. Overall, however, this lens is practically a must-buy, and certainly the best 23mm in the Fuji system at the moment.
