Fuji 16-55mm review: An excellent versatile lens | Olivier Duong

Conclusion

In short, if you are not into primes (or even if you are…), this is THE lens to get. It’s not as portable as some other Fuji lenses like the 18mm, but it more than makes up for it in terms of image quality and speed. The close focus capabilities are the icing on the cake. This is the kind of lens that you can glue it to your camera and not use much any lens for quite some time…….

Views of Kenya with the Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR | Matt Brandon

So just before I left for Kenya, I got a WhatsApp message from my contact at Fujifilm Malaysia telling me they had the yet-to-be-released Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR. I have been waiting for this lens since it showed up on the Fujifilm Lens Road Map. A 16mm f/ 1.4? That’s a lot of light!  But the real question was going to be, would I feel it was wide enough? Let’s face it, a 16mm lens on the X-system is effectively a 24mm in 35mm-speak and I generally like shooting wide. I like fast even better. This lens has not disappointed me. I really wanted to write this review before leaving and post it the day the lens was officially announced, but unfortunately I got the lens only the day before I left for Kenya and I have been working on an OFMP training everyday since I arrived. I was able to carve out a few moments here and there to put this little guy through some of it’s paces……

Fujifilm XF16mm lens – picture samples and first thoughts |
Damien Lovegrove

I’ve been fortunate enough to have a couple of copies of the new Fujifilm XF16mm prime lens so far. The first was a pre production unit I picked up in Japan back in February and I later swapped it out for a newer version at The Photography Show last month in Birmingham. My latest copy has serial number 00029 from the final production run. It came boxed and is in full retail guise. I’ve shot over 1000 frames with XF16mm lenses so far and I love this lens. I’ll be linking the shots here in this blog post to their full size counterparts as soon as I’m allowed to do so. The full res images sparkle with clarity and will delight the pixel peepers among you. My idea of lens evaluation doesn’t dwell on the microscopic but uses a more holistic approach. I choose a lens because of the way it translates the three dimensional world into a two dimensional image. The overall look and feel of the images a lens captures are of utmost importance. I love to print my work too and the process of producing prints is the most telling step in image quality evaluation……

56 WITH THE 56 | FUJIFILM XF 56MM F1.2 FIRST IMPRESSIONS | V.OPOKU

Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 – I have been flirting with this lens for about 5 months now but I don’t own a copy yet which is a bit of a surprise considering the fact that I have always had a thing for fast-short-telephoto lenses; an 85mm f/1.4s has always been part of my professional kit – I have owed a Carl Zeiss Planar and a Nikkor 85mm in the past. The inclusion of this lens in my kitbag should have be a no-brainer, heck this use to be my favourite focal length, however it hasn’t worked out that way. I have spent the past 2 years documenting 99% of my work with just the XF 35mm f/1.4 and the X100S with its native 23mm lens. As a result, the FOV of 50mm and 35mm have become natural to me. I can pre-visualise images at these field of views even before I take them – “this will look good at 35mm and that will look better at 50mm.” I wouldn’t say I have mastered seeing everything through these perspectives yet, but I have a rough idea of how an image is going to look even before I raise a camera to my eye. I feel “at home” shooting at 35mm &  50mm. I contemplated on switching things up and going with 35mm + 85mm combination this season – a popular choice amongst many wedding photographers, but….

XF16mm. a WIDER perspective. | Ivan Joshua Loh

The super fast Fujinon XF 23mm F1.4 has always been the default lens on any X-series camera that I bring along for my daily domestic photography mission. Like my endless trip to the supermarket, fetching my cheeky daughter from school or a trip to the lush Singapore Botanical Garden with my family. I love the XF 23mm because its a lens that fulfilled many of my needs in 1 lens. Not all but some. Its has quite a decent wide angle, AF is fast and the F1.4 glass is more then great! Today I decided to widen my perspective by mounting the swanky new pre-production XF 16mm lens. It’s also a super fast F1.4 lens. Is it the new must have for X-series fujinistas? Its a 24mm in 35mm format equivalent. Let me take you through the paces and see if this is another a great Fujinon lens or its a let down? …..

XF16mm F1.4 Initial Reactions | Ben Cherry

I have been using a prototype of this lovely lens for just over a month now and I have to say I have rather fallen for it. This is a problem as I already have and love the XF10-24mm! When I first received it, I wasn’t entirely sure what I would use it to photograph, but it quickly became apparent that this lens, despite being a relatively large prime, is extremely flexible. Similar to the XF23mm F1.4, this lens is slightly larger, I suspect this is partly due to the inclusion of weather resistant sealing (WR) which I am very happy about. Aimed at a variety of photographers, many of which will be working outside, the added reassurance of WR is very welcome when combined with the X-T1 which is also WR (not that I have actually had any issues with a non-WR lens or body before while in the field). Note that the filter size is 67mm, compared to 62mm for the XF23mm and XF56mm lenses. This is slightly annoying as it would be nice to only have one set of thread filters to carry around for this trio. But I prefer this slight problem to not having WR……..

Fast test of the new Fujifilm XF16mm f1.4 R WR | Max de Martino

As the Fuji ambassador (or X-Photographer, if you prefer), Fuji Italy chose me to carry out a short test for a sample of the pre-production of the new Fuji 16mm fl.4 with particularly interesting lenses because it fills a gap of what is missing in the average lens kit: that of a very bright wide angle. For clarity, it is necessary to indicate that before arriving on the market and passing the test phases, the lenses follow three steps:

  1. Pre-production (often the lens is not final and still has room for improvement)
  2. Editor Edition (the lens is almost final, these series are often assigned to the reviews’ tests)
  3. Final Specimen

So we’ll leave it at saying that my lens was a bit of a “Pre-production”, thus it is still to be improved upon. The 16mm fl. 4 is a solid lens like the whole XF series. In terms of size, it is pretty close to the 56mm f1.2 as seen in the photo below. It differs from this in the diameter of the filters (67mm versus 62) , for the length and by the fact of it being tropicalized……..

Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 lens – the wide angle wonder |
Flemming Bo Jensen

For the past 3 weeks I have had a prototype of the Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 lens on loan from Fujifilm to test, review and shoot sample images. I use wide angle a lot in my work and I have been looking forward to the XF16mmF1.4 for a long time. I am a sucker for the wide shot and often in my music photography I need to create a dramatic look. Wide angle lenses and I were made to join forces in our quest for the epic. Fuji already produce some really nice wide angle lenses, but this one promised an aperture of F1.4 and I need speed in my nightclub photography. I am not a technical reviewer, I do not go into all the technical specs of the lens nor do I shoot test patterns or studio shots. Actually I am not a reviewer at all, this is me working with the lens in real situations and my impressions after 3 weeks of use. Some of the images will be grainy due to io6400 as I used the lens in the dark environments I normally shoot in, not in perfect studio conditions. I have not specifically gone for shooting at F1.4 all the time (actually a few times I wanted to but accidentally moved the aperture ring to F1.6) but most of the images are all in the F1.4-F2.0 range – a range no other wide angle Fuji lens can do. On many of the images I have chosen to post the same in camera jpegs as I have delivered to Fuji – I continue to be amazed at how good the in camera jpegs are. Please, note that this is a prototype lens, not a finished product……….

FIRST LOOK AT FUJIFILM XF 16mm f 1.4 R WR FUJINON LENS |
Björn Moerman

Today, Fujifilm announced the brand-new XF 16mm f1.4 R WR prime lens! As this has been a lens I’ve been eagerly waiting for, I didn’t have to think twice when Fujifilm Middle East offered me a copy to test shoot a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it was a pre-production copy of the lens which might not be 100% the same as the final product released today. The lens firmware showed a version 1.0. which will likely be the same on the initial release. The overall feel and built quality of the lens is very much in line with the other „latest“ generation Fujinon primes (23mm 1.4 and 56mm 1.2). The beautifully made metal lens is a prime example of fine Japanese machinery! If ever one can fall in love with a lens, this one must come close…
