Fuji X 23mm f/1.4 in DUMBO Brooklyn

Took the new 23mm out for a quick test-drive today in rainy, overcast DUMBO Brooklyn. I have to say, after a nauseating moment where all my images were coming out "fogged" due to the UV filter I had popped on, I am extremely happy with this lens. As good or better than the 35mm in sharpness, color, contrast and overall "pop". I love the Fuji 35mm, but sometimes it's too tight, and I missed the 35mm FOV of my X100 when shooting with the X-E1. Now I have it. I think this will be my most used lens from here on out!

A few from today. X-E1, all at f/1.4, ISO 200, Aperture Priority, NO UV or Hood, Processed in LR 4.4.

Beer. Pedro's on Jay and Front St.

Sprinklers. At 100% you can see the fine paint texture in the white letters.

Enter. Jay St. No distortion, and look at that color and contrast!

Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan in the Fog. This is at f/1.4! Focused on the Tug boat.

Lawn Closed. Bokeh is looking' good!

Bouys. The detail in the cracked paint and sharpness at 100% is incredible.

Ice Cream Factory. Very little vignetting (that I can see).

Locks of Love. Micro contrast is amazing, and the bokeh is smooth!

Tall Masts of Manhattan.

Locks 2. Pretty nice bokeh, especially for a wide lens. Love it!
