XF23mmF2 R WR_Black_Side


Fujifilm USA announced a new addition to it’s X-Series lens lineup, the FUJINON XF 23mm F2 R WR. This APS-C format compact lens comes in at only 180g and is both weather and dust resistant. This lens pairs well with the recently released Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR. Overall, optically, one would expect the same great image quality that Fujifilm shooters have been reporting out of this lens as well, especially for its price.


The FUJINON XF23mmF2 R WR will be available in September 2016 for USD $449.95. It will initially be available in Black only.
