First Impressions: Fujifilm XF 23mm F2 R WR

Fujifilm photographers, there is a new lens on the block, just released this past week, it’s Fujifilm’s new Fujinon 23mm F/2 R WR–the second release in their new compact weather-sealed prime lens series following the 35mm F/2 R WR.

The New Fujifilm 23mm F2 R WR Lens Will Cost $449

We have known it was coming for a while now, and after a series of leaks, and rumors today Fujifilm made the 23mm F2 R WR official. Joining the 35mm F2 WR in Fujifilm’s line of small weather resistant fast prime lenses, the 23mm will focus quickly and pair perfectly with Fujifilm’s latest camera offerings like the X-Pro 2 and X-T2.

The XF 23mm F2 WR will have that same quality build and finish we have come to love about the 35mm F2 WR, with its all metal construction and quality aperture & focusing rings.

More specs are after the jump.
