An Incredible sharp lens

By Kevin Sun

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

A great sharp lens with my FujiFilm XT2, fast to focus and good performance in low light, incredibly shallow depth-of-field. I just got what I dream to have to compare my DSLR about color and saturation, I impressed by this lens.

OMG Love this lens

By G Money

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

Nothing can beet a prime lens with 1.4 f stop. This setup allows so much freedom to do whatever you want. I have actually found that I need to sometimes back off and get more depth of field to capture the image I am looking for. Have yet to even try a flash with this setup.

Excellent All-Around Lens

By Alexander

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

This lens is on my XT2 about 90% of the time. It's quick to focus, offers vibrant images ... and going to 1.4, performs very well in low light, with an incredibly shallow depth-of-field. It's also fairly light, compared to quality glass for the bulkier DSLR's.

I've also played a guessing game with folks who know various lens lineups.. and they can't tell the difference between images from this lens versus a Canon 35L, etc.

10 out of 10 in my book.

Also my first prime that is wider than 50mm (ff equivalent). Love everything about it so far. Used in conjunction with my Canon 6D and 85mm lens.

Great lens

By Howard

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

Awesome lens. Compared to my Fujifilm XF 16 - 55 mm lens, the 23 mm lens offers greater versatility in low light conditions. The 16 - 55 mm lens blurs photo images frequently when attempting photography in low light conditions (indoor in a school gymnasium, hallway). Given the same low light situation, the 23 mm lens can take sharp pictures almost effortlessly. Bokeh is beautiful. Images are very sharp. I use the Fujifilm X-E2 body for both lenses.

The Prime Directive

By Stephen

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

This prime lens has become my work horse. I leave it on the camera ready for quick use. The Fuji kit zoom lenses are also terrific but I like the 1.4 for low light situations so that I do not have to crank up the ISO as much. There is a lower cost and lighter 23mm 2.0 prime on the market now. The size, weight and weather sealing of that lens is attractive but the 1.4 has nice bokeh for such a wide lens.

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

Bought this with my X-T2 so that I could have a 35mm equivalent to go with my Canon 6D and 85 1.8. It's fast, focuses flawlessly, and I love the field of view. This is the first time I've owned a prime that was wider than 50mm.

Worth Every Penny

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

This lens is amazing! The photos "pop" without any post production. The resolution is astounding! I can crop and still retain sharpness without any noise. It balances well on my X-T10

I went for the f/1.4 aperture as I do shoot indoors a fair amount and wanted the extra stop over the new XF 23mm f/2. I cannot make an IQ comparison but can say this lens offers the best I've enjoyed in my 20+ years of shooting.

If you're on the fence between this and the new 23mm, and you can afford the extra cost, just get it!

Love this lens - one of the best Fujis

By Steve

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

Where else can you get a lens of this quality for the cost? I'm really impressed - it's very usable wide open when you really need soft/thin focus. Bokeh is nice when you can get it. It has very low aberrations and is really well made. The rings are firm, the material is solid and the fitment of the cap on the back is tight and firm. The clutch mechanism for going to manual focus is very cool as well.

Solid match for my Fuji XT10

By Craig

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

As a beginner I wanted a prime lens a step up from my Fuji XT10 kit lens that was well-built, fast and technically solid. I have only used it a bit thus far, but have been pleased on all counts. I use it for street photography and is a great all-purpose lens. Very recommended.

EXCELLENT Lens !!!!

By The Documentorian

from Orlando, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens:

If I could give this lens more than just 5 stars I would. I've shots street photography, portrait, product, event, landscape, night time photography and more. This baby out does or matches up to every other Fujifilm (or Fujifilm lens mount) lens I own. I truly can put this lens in the category of 'best lens I own' - and I'm comparing this to 3 other primes and 2 telephoto zooms (all pro grade / low "F" stop etc...). I could go on and on and gush about this lens. Bottom line: If you're even considering this and have the budget, do not even hesitate. Just buy it> I can NOT imagine anyone being disappointed enough to return this or whatever !!!!
