The Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens is a next-generation prime lens that has been developed to accommodate future camera sensors with even higher resolution and to set a new standard for XF lenses in terms of picture resolution potential. The lens offers uncompromising optical performance to produce outstanding clarity even when wide open at F1.4, thanks to its very flexible wide focal length of 23mm (equivalent to 35mm in the 35mm film format).
The narrow depth of field renders the backdrop out-of-focus for creamy bokeh, giving the focal subject three-dimensional qualities. Even at the highest aperture, the use of nine aperture blades ensures a virtually circular bokeh effect. The lens accommodates a wide range of shooting conditions thanks to its superior close-up performance.
To take advantage of the totally revamped optical performance in stills, video, and all shooting conditions, the new Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens boasts a quick and highly accurate AF in a small, lightweight, and ruggedized build. Because of the use of a linear motor, the AF system may achieve a high-precision focus in as little as 0.04 seconds, capturing a decisive photo opportunity in any situation.*1 Despite being a large-aperture prime, the lens is light and compact, weighing just 375g and measuring 77.8mm long with a 58mm filter thread.
The ruggedized design, which is dust- and moisture-resistant and can function at temperatures as low as -10°C, allows the X system to maintain its trademark mobility while delivering the superior optical performance anticipated of large-aperture lenses in all shooting situations. The Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens rewrites the standard to propel the X Series forward for the next decade and beyond.

New-generation resolution performance with edge-to-edge sharpness when wide open at F1.4
The lens consists of 15 lens elements, including two aspherical elements and three ED elements, in 10 groups to effectively minimize chromatic aberration and spherical aberration, delivering edge-to-edge sharpness even when wide open. The focusing group in the middle controls aspherical aberration and chromatic aberration. A two-element lens group including an aspherical lens at the far end reduces the fluctuation of aberration caused by the movements of focusing elements, securing superior image quality across all focusing ranges from close-up to infinity.
Boasting the maximum aperture of F1.4, the lens allows users to produce high-quality pictures with minimal camera shake and digital noise even in low light conditions such as poorly lit indoors and nightscapes. At F1.4, the lens provides a shallow depth-of-field to render background out-of-focus for creamy bokeh, adding a clear contrast and three-dimensional definitions to sharply focused the main subject on the focal plane. Comatic aberration is also well-controlled to capture small light sources as round points, avoiding colour casts in the background in bokeh. The use of nine aperture blades ensures a nearly round shape bokeh effect even around the maximum aperture.
Popular wide-angle focal length and broad shooting range
The Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens offers a popular and highly versatile focal length of 23mm (equivalent to 35mm in the 35mm film format) with a minimum working distance of 19cm and a maximum magnification of 0.2x. The close-up capability, a huge improvement over the previous model, enables a dynamic framing characteristic of wide-angle lenses, capturing the main subject in close-up while bringing a greater spread of background into the frame. Users enjoy greater flexibility, as they do not need to worry about the distance from the main subject.
Silent, fast and highly accurate AF
The lightweight design of Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens focusing lens group means it is driven by a linear motor, resulting in silent, fast and highly accurate AF. The AF is achieved with the Inner Focus system, which keeps the range of movements for the focusing lens group small while improving the level of precision in controlling the amount of focusing required within the range. The focus is attained in as fast as 0.04 seconds, ensuring that users do not miss a decisive photo opportunity.*1
The lens maintains focus highly accurately even in the AF-C mode and is also optically designed to reduce changes in the angle of view, caused by focus breathing, to approximately 0.011%, making it an ideal choice for video recording.
The mechanism that drives the six-element focusing group together reduces the fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing, producing clear and crisp images at all focus positions from close-up to infinity.
Advanced mobility based on compact, lightweight and weather-resistant construction
The Fujifilm XF 23mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens is compact and lightweight, weighing approximately 375g and measuring 77.8mm long with a filter thread size of 58mm. The external diameter of the focusing lens group is kept small to accommodate a linear motor in the space created to achieve a slimline design.
The lens barrel is weather-sealed at 11 locations so that it is dust and weather resistant and can be used at temperatures as low as -10℃, accommodating snapshots in rain, astrophotography in cold winter nights and changes in external conditions seamlessly.
The focus ring has an improved control resolution for greater control, especially during manual focusing at a shallow depth of field. The gear pitch inside the focus ring is carefully designed for advanced movement detection capability, enabling linear focusing that responds precisely to the subtlest of fingertip movements.
The A (auto) Position Lock offers reliable operation, locking the aperture ring in place to avoid any unintentional adjustment during shooting.
The shape of knurling on the focus ring is carefully designed to make it easy to remove dirt stuck in grooves.
