Fun with Fuji
As my day job is a photography magazine editor, I get to test a wide range of gear. From bags and tripods to flashguns and cameras, there aren’t many days when a parcel containing something interesting doesn’t land on my desk.
Recently I had the opportunity to test a fantastic optic for our sister title – the official Fuji magazine, who are ripping up the industry with its X-series camera range. I feel privileged to get hands on with this kit, because a lot of the time I’m one of the first people in the country to try this gear out and that was the case with the XF 23mm lens.
As you can see from the images, the magazine is an interactive digital title, which has been making headlines in the publishing world. Testing the lens was great fun – not only because it’s a genuinely excellent lens, but also because I roped in my favourite model, my lovely daughter.
The XF 23mm is a versatile lens suited to landscapes, architecture and even portraits given the X-series crop factor. Plus, the built quality means that the optic matches the robust nature of the X-series camera.
