Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 lens is allegedly in the works
Fuji currently has the fast XF 56mm f/1.2 R lens. It is an optically exceptional lens with a ridiculously wide aperture that gives you creamy background blur to enhance any portrait. It’s a perfect choice for shooting indoors, portrait and at night. The company also has the fast XF 35mm F1.4 R and XF 23mm F1.4 R prime lenses.
The XF 35mm f/2 R WR with a full-frame equivalent of approximately 53mm lens is expected to have a good alternative such as an optic with focal length equivalent of 35mm.
The company is rumored to announce a new XF 33mm f/1.0 and XF 200mm f/2 lenses. Highly anticipated Fujifilm X200 digital compact camera rumored for early 2017.
We have to underline that all lenses are on Fuji’s unofficial roadmap which means that the company may change their plans for future products.
