Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R (Fujifilm) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
28 April 2014
  • Conclusion: The Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R is a highly attractive addition to the Fujifilm lens lineup. It combines an ultra-large aperture with high quality results. At large aperture settings the center quality is already pretty high whereas the borders/corners are at least on a good level. The resolution is much more snappy at f/2.8 and images are tack sharp between f/4 and f/5.6. The low amount of lateral CAs also contributes to the high sharpness perception.

Fujinon XF 23 mm f/1.4 R

  • Excerpt: Those companies who’ve been developing their own mirrorless systems are rather skimpy with truly aperture-fast lenses – f/1.4 or better. For example neither Canon nor Olympus nor Sony feature such a bright device in their line-ups; Samsung has just one and Panasonic- two. Even Nikon, with a system featuring the smaller sensor so theoretically the easiest for a construction of fast lenses, has just one of them.

  • Summary: Ocena testowanego przez nas Fujinona XF 23 mm f/1.4 R jest na pewno wysoka. Trudno jednak uciec od porównywania go do konkurentów poprzez pryzmat jego ceny, która do małych przecież nie należy. A tutaj już tak różowo nie jest. Trudniejsza do zaprojektowania i wykonania Sigma A 35 mm f/1.4 HSM, nie dość że jest tańsza, to jej osiągi optyczne wypadają trochę lepiej. To pokazuje, że konstruktorzy Fuji mogli trochę lepiej wykonać swoją pracę.
  • Pros: solidna obudowa,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, prawidłowo korygowana poprzeczna aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielka aberracja sferyczna,, niezauważalna dystorsja,, ładny wygląd obrazów pozaogniskowych,, bardzo dobra praca pod ostre światło,, szybki i celny autofokus.
  • Cons: wyraźna podłużna aberracja chromatyczna,, spore winietowanie w okolicach maksymalnego otworu względnego,, trochę za duża koma.
