I would like to start the campaign for a new XF23mm f1.4 WR lens.
The original 23mm is my most used lens, by a mile. But I seem to have managed to damage it with rain and snow, while shooting on the south coast this last week. It now has a watermark across one of the internal elements.
While I understand there is the f2.0 WR version, in my opinion it is not as good as the f1.4.
So Fuji, please could you update this excellent lens to include weather resistance
The reason I ask, is that I am interested in the lens for portraits, but it is by far the most sold Fujinon lens on the most popular used market site in my country, which makes me wonder why its not a keeper for so many people? Any ideas? It is supposed to be SHARP, but does it lack character or whar else might cause it?
I am taking pictures since almost 40 years a lot, often when raining. Although i have never owned a weather resistant lens/camera until recently i never ever had a problem. When reading in this forum and blogs some people say WR is a big plus, others say it is overrated. Thus, my question: Who ever had problems with a non-WR or a WR-lens when raining?
