Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens Review (by LensTip): Completely Recommendable!

LensTip published their Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens review saying that this Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR lens is a joy to use and completely recommendable.

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.


  • handy but solid and weather-resistant casing,
  • excellent image quality in the frame centre,
  • sensible image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • negligible longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • lack of distinct problems connected to spherical aberration,
  • practically zero distortion,
  • slight astigmatism,
  • silent, reasonably quick and accurate autofocus.


  • noticeable coma,
  • very high vignetting for RAW files.
