This 23mm wide-angle lens provides a 35mm-equivalent field of view, making it ideal for a range of everyday situations. Offering great versatility, use this lens for everything from portraits to landscapes. Designed to make the most of Fujifilm’s X-Trans CMOS sensor, it will deliver high picture quality when paired with a Fujifilm camera.
Weighing just 180g this lightweight lens is also compact, making it easy to carry around. Whether you’re taking it with you on your travels, using it for events or everyday situations, it’s light enough to pack away and carry with you. Made out of stylish metal exterior, it’s not only robust but well designed. It also complements Fujifilm’s XF 35mm lens with a similar size and design if you wanted to make a set.
Capable of taking on temperatures as low as -10°C, the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 lens is ideal if you want to take it out on adventure travels or expose it to harsh temperatures. It’s also resistant to dust, with its weather seal construction closing off small particles from getting into the mechanics. You also won’t need to worry about getting it wet in rain as it’s waterproof.
With an impressive aperture range from f/2 to f/16, you’ll have the flexibility to harness a range of lighting conditions for varied effects to create exactly the kind of image you're going for. Fast lenses like this also give you greater control over focus when working with shallow depth of field or selective focus techniques.
The internal focusing stepping motor AF system in this Fujifilm lens delivers smooth, near-silent performance. Focusing can be as quick as 0.05 seconds. We know that every millisecond counts in some situations, like when you’re trying to capture action shots, and this AF system is ideal for exactly that. As it shoots silently, it’s also ideal for situations where you need to be candid, such as around wildlife or during a special moment at an event.
The 10 elements in 6 groups design including 2 aspherical elements produces advanced image quality. Spherical aberrations and distortions are minimised with this lens for increased clarity and sharpness in your images. With a super electron beam coating (EBC) on the lens surface, flaring and ghosting are reduced to produce clear and undistracted imagery.

A good simple, clear filter designed for general protection for your lens is the B+W XS-Pro Digital 007 Clear filter MRC nano 62mm. This optically clear filter does not affect the overall image quality, while helping to reduce dust, scratches, moisture and other elements from damaging your lens.
If you are using a hood, put the hood on first and then the cap will secure itself on the hood. The hood is so small that you can leave it on all the time.
Residual oil remover (ROR), unlike other lens cleaners, is designed to emulsify and remove the microscopic film of oil residing on the surface of the lens that is caused by environmental pollution. It’s the best way to keep your lens really clean.
