Interesting. Hard to tell, but it appears to me to be much longer than the 23 mm f/2 on the X100. I suppose that was to be expected.

TT
yes, it's expected to be longer and/or bigger than the x100's 23mm lens, since that lens actually extends more into the body / closer to the sensor.

being of similar design to the 35mm f2, hopefully this 23mm will be as sharp and fast, and of course, priced similarly. :)

I asked Fuji PT about this lens today, I asked if it would be released with the XT2, but they told me that (in PT at least) it would along a little later...

I'm hoping that they'll lend me one, but I bet I'm quite far down in the queue!

Same with the Sony RX1 and that Zeiss lens, can't be replicated on any interchangeable lens system (at least I don't think so anyway).

It tends to be the way. Back in the day I had at one time or another the Panasonic LC-1 and it's almost identical twin the Leica Digilux 2. A superb "28-90" lens made a good camera great by the standards of it's day. There was great speculation at the time about how it could be re-sensored, or the lens mounted to a different body but sadly it's more trouble than it's worth.

I honestly don't know why I'm looking at this lens . . . I need to stop looking at gear threads. I should focus on photos of flowers, or puppies, or kittens, or autumn foliage, or . . .

the gear is fun for sure, but ultimately you can either compose a shot or well or you can't. I've seen enough of your photos, Tony. You're fine. Feed the gear "inner beast" when you're flush with cash, but you don't need more than you have. None of us do.

If I could hit "Agree" on your post multiple times Luke, I would. Lessons learned the hard way, and all that . . .

a few early size comparisons... and having previously owned the 23mm f1.4, i am seeing a substantial decrease in size for the 23mm f2. this and the upcoming 50mm f2 will probably make my kit lighter and more compact. ;)
