From their conclusion:
“Small, shapely, weather-resistant, optically good, with interesting optical parameters – can you ask for more? Of course grumblers might carp about high vignetting or coma levels but fighting those aberrations would also mean bigger physical dimensions of the tested lens so removing one of its more important assets. I guess such a price is worth paying in order to enjoy the Fujinon XF 23 mm f/2 R WR as it is. After all the instrument is a joy to use and completely recommendable.”
