Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R:: The Trend Continues | Riley Joseph

Conclusion

This lens will be added to my kit. I do own a X100s but having the same field of view with a faster aperture on the X-Pro1 will definitely benefit me. I will not be selling my X100s.. probably ever. It has the leaf shutter with crazy fast sync speeds, it is small, compact and gorgeous to look at. The lens retails for $900 Canadian which I know seems expensive. But that is definitely cheaper than the Canon 35mm 1.4 and the Fuji is much sharper wide open in my opinion. And I'll end this post with one more shot of Curtis taken, of course, with the XF 23mm lens. If you want to see these photos larger as well as a few more taken with the XF 23mm head over and follow me at  my Tumblr.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60 mm f/2.4 R Macro review | Lenstip.com | Fujifilm X | Scoop.it


Pros:

 

solid and high quality casing,

very good resolution in the frame centre,good resolution on the edge of the frame,

excellent correction of chromatic aberration,

slight spherical aberration,

good coma correction,

negligible astigmatism,

moderate vignetting,

good transmission.

 

Cons:

noticeable distortion,

unreliable autofocus,

work against bright light could have been better.

 

Out of three lenses, launched along the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the 2.4/60 model has the best pros to cons ratio. Does it mean it is the best? It would be difficult to answer such a question unambiguously. Usually 60-150 mm macro lenses fare very well in our tests, often breaking resolution records or at least coming close to it. The Fujinon 2.4/60 doesn’t break any records despite its long list of advantages but it must be emphasized that the quality of images, provided by that lens, is still very good. Perhaps the fact that from the very beginning the lens was designed not as a typical macro device but as a compromise between a classic macro photographic instrument and a portrait lens is the reason. Compromises and emphasis on versatility result in gains in one area and unavoidable losses in the other.

 

Objectively we must admit that the losses of the Fujinon 2.4/60 are not very important so this lens is a quite successful compromise. Its biggest slip-up seems to be the autofocus but we hope that with the new firmware and new bodies, appearing in that system, the problems with setting the focus will go away and be forgotten.
