Re: XF 23f1.4 first findings and test shots

Thanks for your thoughts.  I find surprising that the contrast is low wide open on 23 as the smaller and cheaper 35/1.4 is actually very contrasty wide open in my opinion.   The photos you posted look flat and unremarkable but I assume you just wanted to post a few quick snap shots from the first day.

I'll personally pass on this lens but I am very interested in 56/1.2 and can't wait for Fuji to release it.
