Got an X-T1 and 23mm f/1.4 today. My first Fuji. I'm impressed and disappointed at the same time.

Re: Got an X-T1 and 23mm f/1.4 today.

I do think this lens has some special mojo. It is going to be a "classic" for sure. It incorporates some pretty heavy glass elements so you can at times, when racking it's full travel in autofocus, feel it work. But quite frankly with focus times under a second it's hard to complain. I suspect it will get more use on my X-T1 than I might have thought. Typically for me, this focal length prime would tend to spend most of it's time in my bag and not on the camera. I tend to prefer a competent or faster zoom like a 18-55. But there is just "something" about the output of this lens that is enticing, so I think it may well find it's way on the body more often than not.
