The XF23mmF2 is a compact, wide-angle lens that weighs just 180g and features fast AF for enjoying snapshots with ease. Weather and dust-resistant, it’s capable of operating at low temperatures.
FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it will release a new “FUJINON lens, XF23mmF2 R WR,” in late September 2016* to join the lineup of interchangeable lenses for the X Series of digital cameras, known for their outstanding image quality based on the company’s proprietary color reproduction technology.
The new lens has a highly versatile focal length equivalent to 35mm (in the 35mm film format), covering a range of subjects from snapshots to landscapes and portraits. Its compact and lightweight design and high-speed AF capability allow users to enjoy taking snapshots on the fly.
The XF23mmF2 R WR is a wide-angle lens with advanced image resolution, capable of drawing out the full performance of Fujifilm’s proprietary X-TRANS CMOS sensor. It has a similar size and design flair of the existing XF35mmF2 to make up a stylish collection of compact lenses. The inner-focus AF system uses a stepping motor ** to drive the focusing group of lens elements for silent and fast autofocus.
The metal exterior gives a sense of premium quality and robustness, and the aperture ring and focus ring have been designed for optimum operability. The lens is also weather and dust resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C, making it an ideal choice for outdoor photography.
