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.

I agree that these samples do look a little flat but I would guess this is down to the light, the majority of samples I've seen from this lens @ f1.4 looking very good, the X-Trans sensor can often make images seem flat in flat lighting much like any camera.

It does look like a chunky lens though so at lest your getting your money's worth
