23 Apr Review of the Fujifilm 23mm F2 – One Lens to Rule Them All

Even though I carried a bag with three lenses, my three weeks trip around Portugal was dominated using one lens. Glued to my Fujifilm X-T20: the Fujifilm 23mm F2.0 WR.

The Fujifilm’s 23mm F2.0 WR, FF equivalent focal length of 35mm, is simply awesome and covers all – landscape to portraiture. Of course, shooting portraits with 35mm FF equivalent lens with a widest aperture of F2.0 is not easy, and you will not get a creamy smooth bokeh, but it is great to take portraits with the surrounding environment! In my eyes, the Fujifilm X-T20 paired with the small, lightweight and compact Fujifilm 23mm F2.0 WR is the perfect combination to take wherever you go.

So, the Fujifilm 23mm F2.0 WR and its light 200 grams suit me just right. It is very compact and the overall quality of the lens is very
