From the manufacturer
The XF23mmF2 R WR is a wide-angle lens with advanced image resolution, capable of drawing out the full performance of Fujifilm's proprietary X-Trans CMOS sensor. It has a similar size and design flair of the existing XF35mmF2 R WR, to make up a stylish collection of compact lenses. The inner-focus AF system uses a stepping motor* to drive the focusing group of lens elements for silent and fast autofocus.
The metal exterior gives a sense of premium quality and robustness, and the aperture ring and focus ring have been designed for optimum operability. The lens is also weather and dust resistant and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C, making it an ideal choice for outdoor photography.
Compact Wide-angle Lens
Advanced Image Quality
The lens consists of ten elements in six groups, including two aspherical elements. The optimum positioning of the aspherical elements ensures flatness of the image plane for edge-to-edge sharpness.
The aspherical elements are used as part of the focusing group to minimize performance fluctuations between different focal distances.
Compact, Lightweight And Stylish Design For Great Operability
- The lens weighs just 180g.
- The metal exterior, modeled after the design of XF35mmF2 R WR, gives a sense of premium quality and robustness.
- The compact and stylish form factor almost completely eliminates mechanical vignetting* when using the optical viewfinder on the FUJIFILM X-Pro2 and X-Pro1 cameras.
- The aperture ring and focus ring have just the right amount of clicking and torque for great operability.
* Having part of the lens hood or lens barrel covering the corners of the view through an optical viewfinder.
Weather and Dust Resistant, Capable Of Operating At Temperatures As Low As -10°C
The lens barrel is sealed to make it weather and dust resistant, and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C.
When mounted on the weather- and dust-resistant mirrorless digital cameras FUJIFILM X-Pro2, X-T1, and X-T2, you can shoot in light rain or a dusty environment with peace of mind.
This lens can be used with the vented metal hood 'LH-XF35-2,' which is also compatible with the XF35mmF2 R WR. Coinciding with the launch of the XF23mmF2 R WR, a silver version of the lens hood is will also be released, allowing users to choose an optional hood that matches the color of the lens.
Fast and Silent Autofocus
The inner-focus AF system** uses a stepping motor to drive lightweight focusing elements for silent and fast autofocus. When combined with the phase detection AF system of FUJIFILM X-Pro2 and X-T2, the lens can focus in an astonishing 0.05 seconds***.
** An AF system that moves relatively small lens elements in the middle or at the rear for focusing.
*** Using an internal measurement method compliant with the CIPA Guidelines, with the High Performance mode turned on.

I haven't put it through its paces on AF speed, but am pleased with how fast and quietly the lens focuses. Again, I'm not interested in using the Fuji mirrorless gear for action photography, but I'll probably experiment with it just to see how well it does. My initial impression focusing on one of our cats moving quickly in changing light conditions is that it will do all that I could want from it, but that it isn't going to equal a Canon 7D Mark ii with the 24-70 f/2.8Lii.
I traded some older gear with Adorama Camera back at the start of September with the express intention of ordering this lens. I was surprised to receive it so quickly and was happy that the copy I received appears to focus flawlessly. The size is exactly what I was looking for and I anticipate capturing images that I'd otherwise miss (or use my cell phone camera for) because this lens and one or the other of my Fuji cameras are going to constant companions in the future.
I'm including a photo with the lens (and optional lens hood that fits both the 23mm and 35mm) attached to the X-Pro2 to give an idea of scale as well as a couple of photos that may give an idea of how sharp the focus is (given the limitations of the size for review images). The old cotton gin in particular with its corrugated metal exterior was a great test for how well the lens focused. I'll post the full sized image on Flickr under Tom Wicker. As I have the opportunity, I'll look to see how well the lens performs wide open insofar as CA is concerned, but you can tell from the trees in the background of the cotton gin that it performs very well at stopped down at f/5.6.
Bottom line: this is a great lens for a reasonable price, that matches the focal length that I want to shoot with - right in between the 16mm and 35mm - and the size and weight are great for using the lens in a casual carry with you anywhere rig. The fact that it's weather resistant is another big plus.
However, it might not be the lens for you. Do you already own the 18-55mm kit lens? If so, I don't think you'll find this lens gives you something you don't already have. Yes, f2 is great, but I did some comparable shots on both this and the 23mm, and at distances that would even produce bokeh on either, the look as nearly identical. I don't find the kit lens to be that big either, even on my X-E2S, so I didn't feel like this was significantly smaller. I also don't like the look of it with the lens hood while I love the hood on the 35mm f2. I also just realized I would rather shoot at 50mm and be content with just that lens and the 18-55 for the other focal lengths. That seems like a wonderful combo and my wallet thanks me for showing some restraint for once!
