Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens

The fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens is compact, fast, and weather resistant, and comes in black or silver. This wide-angle is a great selection for those seeking a lightweight and effective imaging lens. Developed for X-series mirrorless cameras provided with APS-C sensors, this 23mm lens provides a classic 35mm equivalent viewpoint, a perspective much loved by street photographers. The lightweight layout and fast f/2 aperture make it a great selection for those looking to stay discreet while taking pictures. Also, by using a pair of aspherical elements in its optical construction, the lens has the ability to combat distortions and aberrations for a clean, sharp image. Also, the 23mm lens has adopted a Super EBC coating to diminish flare and ghosting.

For fast, precise focusing this lens uses an internal focusing stepping motor AF system with the ability lock on in as short a time as 0.05 seconds. Also, the lens has tactile controls in the form of physical aperture along with focusing rings. Also, the weather-sealed lens features a rounded 9-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh.

Featuring a 35mm-equivalent focal length of exactly 35mm, this prime lens delivers a somewhat wide-angle perspective that is useful in a wide array of situations and ideal for street photography.

Fast f/2 maximum aperture is an advantage when working in difficult lighting situations and also provides greater control over focus when shooting with shallow depth of field or selective focus options.

The 10-element-in-6-group arrangement includes a pair of aspherical elements to diminish spherical aberrations and distortions for enhanced clarity and sharpness.

The internal focusing stepping motor autofocus system delivers smooth, stealth-silent performance that can bring in focus as fast as 0.05 second.

A Super Electron Beam Coating has been used on the lens for control of ghosting and flare, and increased image clarity.

Weather seals are included in the lens barrel to insulate against dust, moisture, and temperatures down to 14°F. Nine rounded diaphragm blades help in acquiring a pleasing out-of-focus quality when shooting with selective focus or shallow depth of field.
