fuji Lens_23mm_Black_FrontFollowing its projected lens roadmap, Fujifilm has just announced the addition of the Fujinon f/1.4 R, 23mmm prime lens to its XF lens line-up. The lens delivers a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm on Fuji’s X-series compact system cameras and is equipped with a camera-to-subject distance indicator and a depth-of-field scale on the lens barrel to assist with manual pre-focus. This X-mount lens features an internal focusing system with a built-in high torque DC coreless motor, a 7-bladed diaphragm, 22 stops in 1/3 EV steps and multilayer coating.

With the addition of the 23mm lens, Fuji’s X-mount lens series now consists of six prime (14mm, 18mm, 23mm, 27mm, 35mm, 60mm), two zooms (18-55mm, 55-200mm) XF lenses and one XC 16-50mm model. A trio of Zeiss lenses is also available for Fuji’s X-mount CSCs.

Looking at Fuji’s July 2013 global lens roadmap, we see a 10-24mm f/4 R OIS lens scheduled for later this year and an XF 56mm f/1.2 R slated for January 2014 (subject to change, of course) but Fuji seems to be pretty much on track with expanding its lens selections.

The XF 23mm lens will be available in October. Fuji will be exhibiting at PhotoPlus Expo in New York October 24-26.
