Re: XF 23mm f/2 super fast to focus

Congratulations on the acquisition. The 23mm f2 is an awesome little lens. I've purchased both of the f1.4 versions and returned or sold them, keeping the f2.0 version. For my use, any image quality differences were negated by the slightly larger size and weight.

With regards to the complaints of soft, up close and wide open, . . . I rarely had the desire to shoot wide open at a minimum distance anyway due to the narrow DOF. I have no IQ issues with this lens up close and stopped down to f2.8 or smaller.
