FUJIFILM GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Lens

  • Ideally suited for architectural, landscape, and interior photography, this wide-angle prime lens offers an 18mm equivalent focal length.
  • The 15 elements in 12 groups of optical design incorporate a pair of aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for cleaner, more realistic rendering and sharper image quality.
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element are also featured to control color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved color fidelity and clarity.
  • A Nano GI coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress surface reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • A linear AF motor is used for quick, quiet focusing performance and an internal focusing mechanism maintains the overall length of the lens during operation and also produces consistent optical performance throughout the focusing range.
  • The physical aperture ring allows for intuitive adjustment over exposure settings and incorporates a C (Command) position to permit camera-based aperture settings.
  • Dust- and weather-sealed physical construction enables working in harsh climates and temperatures as low as 14¬įF.
  • The rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Fuji GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR Review

The Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR is the de facto ultra-wide-angle lens for larger-than-full-frame GFX series cameras if you are looking for a native Fujinon lens. You do have a couple of third-party options. The artisans 11mm f/2.8 is quite a bit wider with its fish-eye approach and there is a Laowa 17mm f/4 option as well.

The GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR yields an 18mm full-frame equivalent field of view which can be used for a myriad of topics but foremost would draw the attention of landscape, interior, and architecture photographers.

Fujifilm Canada kindly lent me the GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR and a Fujifilm GFX 50S II for my review.

a Fujifilm GFX 50S II for my review.

Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR - Introduction

The Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR was introduced in the spring of 2017 alongside the GF 110mm f/2 R LM WR. At that point, the widest option for the GFX Series was the GF 32-64mm f/4 zoom lens, and early adopters of the GFX system, especially landscape photographers, rejoiced that they now had a good option in the G mount lineup for wide-angle photography.

The two new lenses also sent a signal that Fujifilm was serious about making high-end, solidly constructed, lenses for their current and upcoming GFX cameras.

At the time this review was posted the GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR was priced at $2,599.00

Fuji GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR - Handling and Specs

The moment you lay hands on the Fujifilm GF 23mm f/4 R LM WR you know you are dealing with a solid piece of photography kit. At 1.86 lb / 845 g and dimensions of 3.54 x 4.06" / 89.8 x 103 mm the weight feels substantial and you will need to allow for some space in your photo bag.

If you plan to buy filters allow for extra cost due to the somewhat large 82mm filter thread. But at least you can add filters which is not always the case with some ultra-wide-angle lenses having bulbous front elements.
