With an f/2 maximum aperture, the lens reliably delivers high performance in challenging low-light conditions, allowing hand-held shooting with faster shutter speeds, low ISO settings, and offering a shallow depth of field for creative selective focus.
Superior Optical Performance
The XF 23mm lens utilises an advanced optical configuration to ensure exceptional performance. The lenses optics incorporate 10 elements in 6 groups, with 2 aspherical elements to minimise spherical aberrations and distortions to deliver excellent optical clarity with true-to-life colour rendition.
Advanced Lens Coating
The lenses impressive optical performance is further boosted by a Super Electron Beam Coating (EBC) that increases image contrast by reducing lens flare while also minimising chromatic aberrations and ghosting. This coating when combined with the optimally positioned aspherical elements ensures outstanding edge-to-edge sharpness in any shooting situation.
Ultra-Fast and Silent Autofocus
The AF system uses a stepping motor to drive the lightweight focusing elements in near-silence, while delivering extremely fast and accurate autofocus. The silent motors eliminate excessive focus noise making the lens perfect for video shooting. When combined with the phase detection AF system of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-T2, the lens can focus in an astonishing 0.05 seconds.
Internal Focus System
The lens focuses internally by moving the inner lens groups without changing its length which eliminates any lens movement while changing focus, this is especially useful when shooting macro. With a minimal focusing distance of 22cm you are able to get close-up to capture fine detail with the lens.
Aesthetic Bokeh Blur
A nine-bladed diaphragm creates a smooth, out of focus background, delivering a pleasing rounded bokeh that dramatically separates your subjects from the background.
Rugged and Weather Proof Construction
A weather sealed barrel protects the lens against dust and moisture, and enables operation at temperatures as low as -10°C. When mounted on weather resistant cameras, you gain the freedom to shoot with confidence regardless of the climate, making the 23mm f2 WR lens an ideal choice for landscape and travel photography.
The lens has a tapered barrel design to eliminate any mechanical vignetting when using the optical viewfinder of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and X-Pro1 cameras. The lens also features Fuji’s renown clicked aperture control ring for easy operation.
With a compact form factor and a lightweight design, combined with incredible versatility and the classic 35mm field of view, the Fujifilm XF 23 mm f/2 R WR Lens is ideal for use as your Fuji X-series camera main lens.
