I may have missed this but does anyone have a idea of what the estimated price point will be for the upcoming Fuji 23mm F1.4 lens?

I dont know any details but just from past experience I cant see this lens being any cheaper than the 35mm f/1.4 and there is a good chance it could be a tad more expensive.

I would agree it will be more expensive. Question how much more. I was looking at 35mm but may wait for the 23mm even if it is slightly more expensive.

My bet woud be $799, but wouldn't it be cool if Fuji would release it for $499 or $599?

I hope the focusing ring isn't...
In reply to George Paulides, Dec 24, 2012

As smooth as the 18mm.

It's such a small lens that it's super easy to accidently touch the focusing ring while holding the lens in manual mode, taking you from in focus, to out of focus with the slightest touch. Or it would be sweet to have a lock, to keep the focus ring in place. The rubber band trick helps the 18mm though.

I'm really looking fwd to this lens.  Having a fast ass 35mm lens appeals to me.  I got so used to the X100, that 50mm has gotten a bit long for me.  I'm still getting used to it =o]  So the sooner this lens comes out the better!  I'm expecting it hit the streets at $700-$800. A bit pricey, but we gotta pay to play i guess =o]

I just want it to be internal focusing, and of they speed of the 18-55. I'm tired of missing shots because te 35 hunts.

at a guess closer to double the price of the 18 or 35 lenses but with better build quality

Anyone have any info on whether the 23 will have a DOF scale like the 14mm?

I seem to recall reading something like that when the roadmap was announced, though looking at pics of the mock-ups, it seems it won't have any.

Most assuredly correct. Super-speed wide angles are generally quite expensive. The equivalent FOV 1,4 35~ sensor lenses are extremely expensive, often reaching over 1000$ and sometimes more (zeiss and Leica) even for ancient designs.

Fuji won't charge as much as those two, but this lens may push close to 1000$. At least, I'd not be surprised if it did.

Did you ever get an answer to this question? I'd be interested also.

How anybody could answer this question? We don't even know when exactly the lens will be available... Of course we can speculate but why should we?

Of course no one will knows until Fuji advises but my original question relates more to what the "rumored" ballpark pricing would be.

The wider the more expensive.

If the 35mm F1.4 is $599, I would assume the 23mm F1.4 will be at least $799...and that's being optimistic. Look at the prices for the Nikon/Canon versions of the 24mm F1.4 .

I read somewhere I can't recall, but it's about $US 800-900 ( under $1000)

Twice more expensive than what I paid for 35 1.4 ? I think i keep my 35mm which is better deal, although I like 23mm focal range more.
