Fuji 23mm f2 is finally here!!!!!!!!!!!

No… I don’t have one to review.

I am just like the rest of you (well most of you) I have to buy my own gear and I don’t have all the latest stuff to test before everyone else. Oh well, anyway I can take comfort in knowing the most beautiful and most sought after lens of all time is finally here.

There’s a sea of “first looks” and “I had 3 days with this lens” type posts/videos out there, so mine will be short since I don’t have one to play with… lol… o_O

It’s so nice:

Which colour will YOU choose?!


Getting down in the hood, yo!

There’s also optional lens hoods that are now in silver (which will also go on your 35 f/2 if you want) .  The optional ones are called â€œLH-XF35-2″ and â€œLH-XF35-2 (Silver)”.  They’re metal but quite pricey at approx $69usd (IIRC).

Optional hoods on the top and included hood on the bottom.
