F/1 on an X-T4 just the right amount of blur for this shot, the couple posted up a set today so I feel OK about letting a few out there now that they have their thanks done. Of course delivered both colour and B&W within 2 days, as that's usual for the commercial work so why not for the weddings.
I pull out a few more over the week

I've had the 23 f1.4 for some time , i bought it even though i have the 23 f2 and am genrally happy with it but .. it is an f2 and sometimes that extra stop makes a difference in low light situations . plus that extra bit of background blur is nice at times.

however i have not been happy with the 1.4's sharpness wide open, and so it seemed a waste if i was going to shoot it at f2 ..

recently i saw a comparison by dpreview(chris and jordan) where chris stated that the 1.4 performed better (or maybe he said equally , either way he defnitly did not say worse) wide open , in terms of sharpness , then the f2.. but again, that has not been my experience at all.

so now i'm thinking maybe i just have a bad copy..

any one have shot with the two? and have an opinion on this?

tests shots below.. are manually focused on a tripod with a very experienced model who knows how to stay as still as a statue... i did repeated shots with manual af, and i did it with AF as well and in every single comprison the 1.4 was obviously softer then the f2..


below are the original shots .. again on a tripod.. the slight difference is because the f2 is a hair wider then the f1.4

Where would you put the X-H1 in terms of continuous AF in the X-T line for comparison?

Very best,

Theoretically the X-H1 and X-T2 would be identical. They use the same sensor and processor so they should be about the same. The X-T3 will be better. I'm using the X-T3 right now and the focusing is great. I don't do a lot of continuous tracking but I shoot concerts in fairly low light and the camera has no problem tracking the singer/musician while they walk or dance around the stage.

Thanks, while I love the idea of the X-H1, I don't need the IBIS hardly at all in reality but I would greatly benefit whatever gives the better continous AF drive. So probably should just target the X-T3.

My goal is to replace the 55-200 with a 50-140 F2.8 after the body upgrade. I'm actually happy with the 18-55 lens, so I won't try to go to 16-80 or 16-55 F2.8 with that one, I'm fine with it as it is honestly. I use a 12mm F2 for my wide purposes. My X100S has a 23mm F2 with AF and works great for its needs (would love a newer version of this camera, but willl wait, very costly). The only other lens I'm considering is a 50mm F2 since they're so cheap and would be a nice small portrait lens.

Very best,

I agree, the f/2 is sharper. It's interesting because I've only used the 23/2 on the X100 line. The F was usually soft wide-open, although occasionally it wouldn't be and I would be confused. I think the distance from your subject was part of it. The version II on the X100V is very sharp wide open. So there are 4 different 23mm lenses, and they all act differently. I could certainly be mistaken, but I have heard that the version on the 'V' is the sharpest of all of them.

Maybe you do have a soft copy? Maybe Fuji can recalibrate it? I have to imagine that no two lenses are going to be alike. Perhaps Chris and Jordan got lucky and got an exceptional copy?

Thats looks off to my eyes, the lens that is. I've found my 23/1.4 to be pretty good optically. Here's one of the few 23mm images I have to hand right now, handheld at 1/15 but with a tiny bit of flash.

Did you manually disable IBIS for all shots? Just trying to eliminate any confounding things that might introduce problems into your comparison.

Got out to take photos in the first time for a while. Almost every day has been 105 degrees or over which makes walking around for an hour less than enjoyable. Glad I made it out though, had a lot of fun.
