A Modern Classic – Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 R Lens | Mirrorless Minutes

Being retired I have a lot of time to think about silly things. I have often thought if I was only allowed to have one lens on my Fuji X-T1 which one would I choose. The three lenses that immediately came to mind were the XF 23mm f/1.4 R, the XF 35mm f/1.4 R and the XF 56mm f/1.2 R.  Each one of these lenses are splendid examples of the lens making art and Fuji has been making outstanding lenses for a very long time. At first I thought my choice would be the 35mm focal length which equates to approximately 50mm on an APS-C sensor camera.  It’s a reasonable focal length and to most people this represents the normal field of view for human eyesight. Then I started thinking about how much I love my Fuji X100 fixed lens camera which is equipped with a 23mm f/2.0 lens that gives the field of view of a 35mm lens on an APS-C sensor camera (actually to be perfectly honest if I was only allowed to have one camera any one of the X100/X100S/X100T series of cameras would be it). So that led me to the conclusion that if I was only allowed one lens the 23mm would be it……..
