Fuji 23 mm lens

fuji 23 mmThe Fujinon XF23 mm f/1.4 R is a premium wide-angle lens designed to work with X-Series compact system cameras.

The lens has a focal length equivalent of a 35 mm lens and features a camera-to-subject distance indicator and a depth-of-field scale on the barrel.

Lens distortion is claimed to have been reduced to an absolute minimum using only optical rather than digital correction. The rounded seven-blade diaphragm ensures smooth bokeh.

The 23 mm lens uses an internal focusing system which incorporates a lens group consisting of three cemented lens elements and one aspheric lens element. Additionally, the built-in high-torque DC coreless motor delivers ultra-fast AF performance, says the company.

All lens elements are treated with Fujifilm’s multilayer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) which delivers enhanced durability and ensures an even spread of light across the sensor.

The lens weighs 300.5 g (10.6oz) and measures 7.2 cm (2.84 inches) in length making it the most compact and lightweight lens in its class, says Fuji. Metal parts are used for the focus and aperture rings, which are designed to give just the right amount of torque and feel.

The Fujinon XF23 mm f/1.4 R will be available in October for $899.95.
