Today I went to the city with my Fuji X-E1 and my new Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R lens. This is one of the first photographs I did with this high-acclaimed lens (see a review at derekclarkphotography) and what I can say since the very first moment I saw the results on my iMac 27” screen is “Wow”. The sharpness of this lens – even wide open – is absolutely amazing. This was the reason why I voted the Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 R the Fuji product of the year 2013, a pool carried by Fuji Rumors that can be seen here.

I am confident when I say that I don’t miss my Canon L glass, neither my DSLR gear that I am selling right now. I don’t want to wander in the streets with a bulk system. I want to be unnoticed. I want to be able to walk an entire day without back pain. Much has been said about the Fuji X system (IQ, lenses road map …). But what it’s true for me may not be true for you. So, give it a try.

  1. I received a ping back through my website because you mentioned me. thanks.

    I love this photo. The colours are stunning, which looks like part Fuji and part great light (not sure where you are in the world). Love the blurred subject moving through the frame and the orange bag is the icing on the cake.
    Looking forward to seeing more.


  2. Hi Derek,

    Thanks for coming back to me. I am starting this new blog to share my street photography with passionate photographers. I am very keen of the Fuji X system. My compliments for you nice webpage and review of the XF 23mm. It made me buy the lens and I regret nothing. I live in Guimarães, Portugal, and I’m an amateur photographer. Keep in touch.
