28 Dec Fuji 23/2.0 & X-Pro2: a little testing: Fujifilm X System / SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

I often peruse the internet for information on … many things technical, shall we say. I found a few testing sites dealing with the 23/2.0 WR including qimago.de (I think the guy’s name is Mehrad??) where he had not much good to say about the lens.
There were others, I didn’t do any book-keeping so my impression is anecdotal regarding this lens.
I had the 23/1.4 but sold it and was going to re-buy one, but thought that maybe I should take another look at the 23/2. One particula blog caught my attention where somebody mentioned that this 9-blade lens had a certain “cinematic” look, like not warm I thought. Teal and orange, like it is used often in colour grading when a thriller needs to pickup some pace regarding the colours.
So in the end, I bought it and took this lens to a little model shoot at the Junk & Disorderly warehouse for all things second hand and more. I can’t show any of the model images for privacy reasons, but spent a little more time afterwards in the warehouse to test the 23/2.0. For the model shoot I used mainly the 56 and the 35 but also the 23 … maybe for another day??
