sometimes I think there is more interest for the XF23mmF2 than for the X-T2 ;)

 

I hope I can give you guys an expeceted release date soon

I'm holding off buying an X-Pro2 unless and until a 23/2 WR is confirmed - it's that important to me. I want a 23/35/60 kit and do not like the lenses with a clutch.

I too am excited.  But do we know if this lens will be WR?  That's one thing that kind of holds me back on the 1.4 lens.

don’t get too excited tough, this lens won’t change the world.

 

It is only going to be a lens which is not in the way of the X pro2 OVF and will be cheaper to fit more pockets.

[...]

 

That is quite normal, 35mm equiv is a much loved FoV for a lot of photographers, the first prime of a lot of ppl are either the 35mm or the 50mm, so since the 50mm equiv already got a WR F2 version, it was about time we have something akin for the XF 23mm F1.4.

 

Plus, some of us do complain about its size. Which, I do not find to be that bad for a wider angle lens at F1.4.

The current 23mm is too heavy and too expensive. The weight is the major factor. It would be great if they did what they did for 35mm. I am even willing to pay a similar price for a smaller lighter 23mm f/2.0 WR.

I came across a pic on instagram showing a lens/lens cap I've never seen before, maybe, maybe? Maybe not...

It's more like a running gag that got out of hand.

Me too! Expecting Fuji to come out with a new roadmap along with the X-T2. Seems logical.

The main reason I'd want this lens is so that I can get a 35mm equivalent lens on an X-Pro2 that doesn't block the OVF. WR, R would be gravy.
