    So far so good, but the jury is still out. Has more to do with my feelings of incompetence than the IQ of the lens, though.

    Yes. It was one of the very first photographs I took with the 23/1.4. Since then, especially on a long hike today, I discovered that it does not focus anywhere near as fast as my other Fuji lenses, and often will hunt a bit.

    So it takes a bit more time to ensure that focus is achieved before pushing the shutter button.

    But that millisecond delay is worth it! It's a truly great lens. I've had mine for around 3 years now and took it and my X-T1 to Lisbon on an extended city break last week - still awesome after all this time. I look forward to seeing lots more images from you using it.

    Thanks very much! The issue I was experiencing with some focusing delay turned out to be that the focus mode dial had inadvertently turned to C from S. After fixing it, the lens focuses very fast.

    And yes, the IQ is awesome! I posted lots more photographs with it in another thread on the forum.
