Re: Fujifilm X-mount Image Thread

I just got the Fuji 23/1.4 in today for testing for the next week. It's not mine, and I have to send it back next Wednesday, but I have it for now. I've taken all of 5 pictures with it so far, so I can't comment much, except that it's sharp across 95% of the frame at f/1.4 and has gorgeous bokeh. It's a chunky lens, but surprisingly light and handles really nicely on the X-E1. Well built too...aperture ring feels nice. Far better than the one on the 14mm and close to how the 35mm and 60mm feel. It focuses a lot faster than the 35, even on the X-E1. I'd imagine it'll be very, very quick on the X-E2. At first blush, it's also notably sharper than the 35mm at f/1.4, especially at the edges. Has a fair bit of longitudinal CA at close focus distances, though.

Here's a quick test shot:

In other good news, my X-E2 pre-order from B&H is in stock and has been sent to the warehouse for shipping! (and I notice, they are showing Silver in stock now) So, if they get it out tonight, I should have it in my hands tomorrow. (Worst case would be Thursday if they don't get it shipped until tomorrow).
