The Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R is a new fast, moderate wide-angle lens for Fujifilm's X-mount compact system cameras. With a focal length equivalent to 35mm in 35mm format, the Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 R prime lens is suitable for a wide range of applications including street photography, landscapes and reportage. According to Fujifilm, the new lens design provides enhanced resolving power with high contrast to draw the maximum performance out of the company's X-Trans CMOS sensors. The optical formula comprises 11 elements arranged in 8 groups, while the focusing lens group consists of three cemented lens elements and one aspheric lens element to keep weight down while the built-in high-torque DC coreless motor delivers ultra-fast AF performance, Fujifilm claims. The Fujinon XF23mm f/1.4 lens will be on sale from October 2013, priced at £849.99.
