Final thread on Fuji XF-23 F2 close-up / minimum focus distance sharpness
3

minimum focus distance

Yes, if you focus at minimum focus distance at F2, you get results that at best, you could describe as dreamy, but in certain cases they are still very usable.

BUT you get much much closer than on other Fuji lenses, i was suprised at how close you can get to the subject, and lens was still autofocusing. If you shoot at the same distance as the other fuji lens minimum distance you get very sharp photos, even at F2.

However if you shoot really close, you can shoot at F4 and still get really sharp photos.

Here is an example, 23mm F2 minimum focus(at F4) Vs Fuji 23mm 1.4.

I would say that i like the 23mm F2 photo more, even thought it is at F4 instead of F1.4.

23mm F2 min focus distance, F4

23mm F1.4 min focus distance, F1.4
