We've been shooting for a while with Fujifilm's latest X-system lens, the XF 23mm F1.4R, and have prepared a gallery of real-world samples. They cover variety of subjects and lighting conditions, and were all shot on the X-E2. We've also quickly summarised our impressions of the lens's handling and image quality below.

Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4R - Quick Impressions

The XF 23mm F1.4 R follows essentially the same design approach as the XF 14mm F2.8 R which we reviewed earlier this year. It's a solidly-made, metal-barrelled lens with a focus ring which can be pulled towards the camera to engage manual focus, revealing a distance and depth-of-field scale in the process. It also has an aperture ring with settings from F1.4 to F16 in one-third stops, plus an 'A' setting. Autofocus is pretty fast (especially on the X-E2), reasonably quiet, and unerringly accurate.

Image quality is superb. It's impressively sharp wide open across most of the frame, and the corners sharpen up quickly on stopping down. Lateral chromatic aberration is essentially non-existent, and the lens is near-perfectly optically corrected for distortion. There's a little vignetting wide open, which is automatically corrected by the camera's JPEG processing. The only slight flaw is longitudinal chromatic aberration at large apertures (which can give green or magenta fringing in out-of-focus areas of the frame), but even this isn't generally very objectionable in normal use. Overall the lens produces near-flawless images from F4 through to F16. 

The 23mm is, at around $900/£850/€1000, not a cheap lens by any means. In context, though, that's about the same price as Sony's E-mount Carl Zeiss Sonnar 24mm F1.8, which is two thirds of a stop slower. At this price it becomes a very personal decision about whether it's worth the money - but we don't think anyone should be disappointed by the image quality.
