Review: Fujifilm Fujinon XF 23mm f/2 R WR

Today I’m taking a look at the second lens in Fuji’s compact f/2 prime range, the 23mm f/2 R WR. This lens joins the existing 35mm f/2 R WR, and recently announced 50mm f/2 R WR, creating a trio of small weathersealed lenses with good optical quality.

New Gear at Photokina

The new Fujifilm GFX 50S Medium Format mirrorless camera

As you’ve probably discovered, I was unable to attend Photokina this year, which I was quite upset about, as I had an absolute blast there two years ago.  I also love being able to visit Germany when ever I can.  However, I still think it’s worth looking at some of the new gear that was …
