First look at the Fuji X-E2 and 23mm f/1.4 lens at PhotoPlus

Fujifilm booth at 2013 PhotoPlus in New York
Fuji had its new X-E2 prominently displayed along with the soon to be available 23mm f/1.4 lens. I have both of these items on order so I was anxious to see them in the flesh.

I did not expect the 23mm lens to be as large as it was. It is almost a full frame dimension lens. On the plus side, the larger size does provide larger rings for both aperture and focus.

Focus and viewfinder refresh seemed to be much enhanced with the X-E2.

Manual use of the lens is greatly enhanced with the larger sized rings.

A proto-type of the Zeiss Touit 50mm macro lens due out the early part of 2014 was not available in a Fuji X mount, but it was interesting to see it just the same.  Even without its hood it is quite a long lens.
