A 35mm lens with a wide maximum aperture is one of the most useful and versatile optics a photographer can have in their bag, suitable for a huge range of applications, including weddings, astrophotography, portraits, and more. For Fuji shooters, there is the XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR lens, and this excellent video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in real-world usage.
Coming to you from John Branch IV Photography, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR lens. With a 35mm-equivalent focal length, the XF 23mm f/1.4 offers a relatively neutral rendering that is wide enough to take in a lot of a scene but not so wide that you will encounter big problems with distortion. That f/1.4 aperture also gives you plenty of power for isolating a subject or low-light work. Along with that, Fujifilm includes:
- One aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
- Super EBC coating for reduced flares and ghosting and deeper contrast
- Rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
Altogether, the XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR looks like another impressive lens from Fujifilm. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
