Pros:Excellent construction and optical quality, extreme clarity, three-dimensionality, versatility focal length
Cons:Not WR, and horrendous supplied lampshed
Opinion:Fantastic optics, the construction quality that is immediately perceived is excellent, it seems almost indestructible so it looks robust and well built. Too bad just for the lack of the WR. Very convenient to be able to pass in manual focus simply by moving the appropriate ring on the lens, which by the way keeps memory of the last focus setting left (typically convenient in my opinion when you want to create special blurred e.g.). Although perhaps not very light, on the X-Pro 3 e.g. it is very well balanced, and it is quite ergonomic in my opinion the grip ring (with which to hold the lens with hand sx eg eg) between the diaphragm ring and the manual activation and focus ring. On the X-Pro 3 it becomes difficult to use machine body and lens with only right hand, but using both hands it becomes very usable. The lens is very clear, with an almost record sharpness perhaps between Fujinon X optics, and what is important is also very usable at TA, that is to say at f 1.4 Autofocus is fast and quite quiet (outside you can not feel it, only perhaps in indoor and very quiet environments it can give perhaps a minimum discomfort, for those with a fine ear at least). And the files produced have a beautiful three-dimensionality and color rendering, very "photogenic" or "filmic" let's say. It is perhaps the quintessential reportage optics, with which you can also do street and some portrait set (with very beautiful blurry), and landscapes, and in this sense therefore very versatile: perhaps even the most versatile, if one has to choose in a trip for example to bring a single lens, this could be the best choice (for focal and quality). The lampshon supplied, however, is horrendous, Personally I have not even tried to mount it (it spoils all the beauty of this optics), and it is really exaggerated, so much so that even without a lampshed it resists the flare very well, and even the rare cases in which it was present, the flare, is still very "soft" and pleasant to see in my opinion. Absolutely recommended anyway, it is perhaps one of the best Fujinon optics, it deserves a full 10 rating!
Pros:Optical quality, construction quality, manual focus
Cons:Lampshed, not wr
Opinion:Fantastic optics, the best ever tried on Fuji. Very nice blurry and for a 35mm eq. on aps-c it is not at all obvious, made colors with excellent progressive nuances, three-dimensionality, sharpness even at full opening, correct optically and not via software. I do not consider it either bulky or heavy, the dimensions count only if you want to use the optical viewfinder on x-pro as it covers a small part of the frame, but I do not use the optical viewfinder on x-pro. If I have to find him a flaw, the fact that he's not wr and the usual plastic lampshed unavailable Fuji. The Af is slightly noisy and not as lightning-fast as the f2, but it doesn't give any problems in practical use.
Cons:Lampshh but ordered immediately together optically the fantastic Metal LH-XF 23 Lampshon.
Opinion:Arrived two hours ago some tests done with various diaphragms and distances. First impression I wonder what weaknesses at this 23 1.4 Fuji I would say difficult maybe AF but I would say behaves very well on my Fuji X-T3 very precise but certainly slow and noisy compared to the 23 2.0 although I have to say that with my Fuji X-T3 setting AF Multi Zone surprises the focus speed on the 23 1.4 Fuji. Perhaps very slight angles drop at the outer corners sharpness at F1.4/2.0 lighter color aberration easy to remove certainly behaves better than 16 1.4 in terms of chromatic aberrations however nothing dramatic on the 23 1.4 Fuji. Paraluce bought immediately optically the lampshon LH-FX 23 for the 23 1.4 Fuji excellent lampshh the original I would say NO as almost all Fuji lampshhs leave something to be desired. Sharpness Contasti Colors little to say I would say excellent focus and possibility with excellent manual focus ring. Overall rating mine but I would say in line with the fantastic 16 1.4 Fuji or even better the chromatic aberrations. After first impressions checked and done further tests I am fully satisfied I would say perfect even at the corners those who most likely complain found a not good faulty pair unfortunately happens. This lens to something as difficult to explain magical as the 35 1.4 Fuji but the 23 1.4 at angles with sharper clarity. Then my personal opinion extremely recommendable.
Pros:Colors, Sharpness, Construction Quality, in short, almost everything.
Opinion:Fantastic goal, among the best I tried. I believe that those who have expressed negative opinions have previously had a failed copy. The images it returns are fantastic, not at all digital, with delicate tonal passages, bokeh among the best ever seen (for an apsc), great aperture of shadows and excellent sharpness already at f1.4 where it loses something at the edges, but little stuff. To buy if you like the focal without ifs and buts.
Pros:right focus according to the way I shoot. magical rendering and super sharpness from f2 onwards. certainly at f1.4 it's a bit soft but you know that this opening serves a certain type of photo. diaframmi diaframmi sliding the right. unique manual focus mechanism. AF not very fast and dumb but does its duty.
Cons:I did not find anything particularly serious, but if we want the footprint and the weight are important, but a lens like this could not be light.
Opinion:I bought this used lens at an attractive price especially for the focal point congenial to me. I tried everything but the fixed focal points are my passion. I mainly use the 35 mm on FF and fischeye for some creative shots. I must say that the fuji quality is felt all, the sharpness is among the merits of this lens even in the backlight. robust and well-built objective. If you want advice put some money aside and buy it. you won't regret it.
