I think the images on the frontpage are a bit wishful thinking, what do you think?

 

Most 23mm (35) lenses are bigger than 35mm (50) lenses, even de Fujifilm 23mm f/1.4 is bigger than the 35 f/1.4. So if they're going to develop the new 23, 35 and 50 f/ 2.0 with the same philosophy it's probable the 23mm is going to be bigger like the "official" mock-ups show.

 

Sidenote: it's interesting that most pancake lenses are 40mm (35mm equiv.) like the m43 20mm Panasonic, 27mm Fuji and loads of FF lenses. Also great quality lenses.

I thought it might be bigger in diameter not in length, so have ordered 27mm already... anyway I lose nothing if 23f2 will be fine I can added it later.

On fuji rumor
There is a new display about this lens compared to 35mm f2

I made a little calculation - it s about 37mm smaller than 18mm f2

Yep, the silhouettes of 23f2 on that swedish website looks much more promising for me...

Yes, that size definitely looks great. Still strange it's such a big difference with the image from Fuji. Let's hope it's the Swedish size! ;)

If true, the 23 being longer than the 35 makes sense to me, from an optics point of view. The main point of the new 23, 35, and 50 is to not obstruct an OVF while not losing IQ. The lenses are not designed to minimize size, per se. The old 23 is longer than the old 35, the 14 is nearly the length of the 23 despite being significantly slower, and the 16 is significantly longer than the old 23.

So with the Swedish site, is it better for them to show a smaller profile to bump up their preorder numbers, at the risk of cancellations when the real lens is shown?

I'm sure not obscuring the ovf was a factor but I seriously doubt if it was the main point; the f/1.4 hardly encroaches on the framing guidelines except for macro where the parallax error makes framing impossible anyway. This is the #1 myth of the 35mm pair.

The aperture ring is for composing in the third dimension, not removing it!
