Tidbits of 23 – and a countdown

Still not a review.

I’m gearing up. Getting ready for Photokina 2016 where I will be speaking at the Fujifilm Live Stage. I will be speaking about my photography. How I see the world. Not really street, not really lifestyle. Just in between. The importance of wearing your camera. That sort of thing.

I’m nervous, exited and everything in between. I look forward to meeting a lot of photographers in person that I’ve so far only built an online relationship with.

If you’re nearby. Feel free to come by. Schedule can be found below.


The 23mm f/2 WR is still treating me very well! – It’s stuck to my X-Pro2 and XT2. It’s a perfect lens for me. What has struck me most about it these past two weeks is the autofocus speed. It’s in a league of its own. Perfect for my style of photography. My kids can no longer outrun my cameras 😛 I’m headed to Greece today and I will be giving it a run-through down there as well 🙂

Take care, and I’ll hopefully get to see some of you at Photokina 2016.

X-Pr02 – X-T2 and the XF23mm f/2 WR


  1. Jonas…just be honest and speak from the heart…let your voice describe what you feel with your eyes…then we will see.

    Good luck. M

  2. I really enjoy your composition and colours. It seems to me that you would get very similar images using the “good old”XF 35 mm. It makes me wondering about the real benefit of this lens.

  3. Jonas your work is beautiful, subtle and inspiring. Your words on the XF23/2 exciting and promising. Good luck at Photokina! I hope your presentation gets recorded and YouTube-ed for those of us who cannot attend.

  4. Great , inspiring images again Jonas! What seems to be the nearest focusing distance of this new 23 f2 WR? The otherwise stellar 35 f2 WR was a slight disappointment for me in that sense. Cheers!

    1. Silly me. Checked the Fuji site. The nearest focusing distance seems to be 22 cm. X100T with macro gives you 10 cm. Did you find the 22 cm of the 23 f2 in any way limiting your work?
