    Cons: Size, maybe. But it is a 1,4...

    Pros: Sharp, tridimensional, almost no distortion. Top of Fujifilm lenses quality.

    Summary: I have owned a first 35mm 1,4 a few years ago. I sold it to buy a second body, then I bought a second copy. The lens in my own opinion is one of the best in the Fujinon X range. It has a distinctive character, the results are outstanding.

    Cons: - Not weather sealed - Huge sample variations

    Pros: - Bright - Reasonable size / weight - Excellent sharpness from wide open - Still sharp at close distances - Smooth bokeh

    Summary: This is an excellent lens and the perfect everyday prime... if you find a good sample. If so, it can be comparable to the great 16mm f/1,4 with more versatile angle and creamier bokeh. It\'s not weather sealed but build quality seems good with reasonable size for it\'s aperture. The optics are sharp from f/1,4 and almost faultless when stopped down one or two stops. On the contrary to the 23mm f/2, it remains sharp even when used at minimal focus distance. Consider this lens over the f/2 version if you need a brighter aperture, like wide angle bokeh or do a lot of close up work. Otherwise sharpess at infinity is similar.

    Cons: soft, slow focusing, aperture ring easy to bump, expensive

    Pros: f/1.4

    Summary: It\'s the only fast 23mm Fuji lens, so there is no other choice. I found the lens soft at the center and very soft at the edges wide open, which is where you want to shoot it, otherwise you would have had 23/2. I compared it to my new RF 35/1.8 (23/1.2 APS-C equivalent) and Fuji is significantly softer and lower in contrast despite being significantly more expensive. This is probably the most overpriced Fuji lens even at $650 on sale. It\'s also an old design with a slow AF.

    Cons: I can\'t get any %100 focus image with this lens. How people can say sharp for this lens don\'t understand. I sent back 2 copies of 23xf 1.4 this week. I will try my chance in 3. copy hopefully.

    Pros: I hope it will be fine when I find a non-soft and non-out of focus copy...

    Summary: Lens could be a great lens if it could focus around %100... Worst 35mm I have ever seen...

    Cons: Slightly big when compared to the whole Fuji X system, but it is worth the extra weight and size.

    Pros: Extremely sharp, robust, recommended for street photography and documentary. I like the depth of field scale and the clutch AF/MF.

    Summary: A great lens, along with the 35mm 1,4 and the 14 mm 2,8. Strongly recommended.

    Cons: Price. Size is okay, but a little on the large side

    Pros: IQ, the image quality is brilliant, bokeh is excellent, it’s sharp, very versatile field of view, excellent build quality, clutch change from AF to MF is a great feature.

    Summary: I really like everything about this lens, and ultimately the image quality. It’s a great all rounder and I use it alongside the Fuji XF 56mm, between these two lenses nearly all my photographic needs are covered.
