Fujinon GF23mmF4 R LM WR Short Review
The Fujinon GF23mm F/4 R LM WR is not a lens that every photographer needs, primarily because it is designed specifically for Fuji’s GFX series mirrorless medium format cameras, and not everyone has or wants a medium format body.
However, if you are invested in the GFX system, this lens filled that ultrawide prime gap the system has been missing. Until its release in the summer of 2017, Fuji’s widest lenses were the
GF32-64mm F/4 R LM WR zoom and the GF45mm F/2.8 R WR prime that is equivalent to 36mm on a 35mm format. Not only that, but it also delivers sharp and clean image quality as well as extensive weather sealing.
It may not have the best autofocusing in low lighting situations, it’s a bit slow with its F/4 maximum aperture, and it’s big and bulky. However, if you’re in need of a wide-angle lens for your GFX body, this has your name all over it. Just be prepared to spend $2,599 for it.
