Fujifilm XF 23mm f/1.4 vs XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0

This is a very simple test to see how my Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 compares to the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 on a X-E2.

There is nothing special about this test and all I did was go out, take a few shots on the same house and repeat with the other lens.

The settings I used with the X-E2 was ISO200, DR100, EV -1/3, -2 noise reduction, FINE JPEG (STD), no extra sharpening.

It was late evening as you can see and im not sure if im happy with the results – what do you think? And yes, I know I didn’t do a f/3.2-shot with the 23mm.
