02 Dec Fujifilm X100T vs. XF 23mm f2 – Apples vs. oranges

If you are a Fuji X user looking for a 23mm lens, you have several options. The first and most natural choice would be between the XF 23mm f/1.4 and XF 23mm f/2 for your interchangeable lens camera. However, there is a third wheel that might just grab your fancy: the X100T, which isn’t just a lens, but also a camera in and of itself.

The XF 23mm f/2 R WR is one of the most recent lenses from Fujifilm and is part of the attractively priced f/2 line-up. The X100T is the third generation of a premium series of APS-C compact cameras with a fixed 23mm lens. You may wonder why you should bother considering a new camera when you are just looking for a lens.

Well, having a second body that covers that field of view can be an interesting solution to work more quickly and efficiently without having to switch lenses. And if you are here, it could also mean that you are already torn between the two, that you’re experiencing a momentary attack of “G.A.S.” (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) or perhaps it’s simply that you are curious. Whatever the reason, we compiled this comparison to (hopefully) help you find an answer.[…]
