XF 16mm

Review of the Fuji XF 16 1.4R WR | Matt McCord

First off, let me start by saying I do not get paid by Fujifilm, nor am I affiliated with them in anyway beside having a love for their products. Secondly, if you want pixel peeping sharpness and noise charts, this isn’t the review for that. I review gear in a real world setting. Basically, I do real world, hands on, reviews of my gear after having used said gear for a period of time long enough for me to have gotten used to it. That being said, I have owned the Fuji XF 16R WR for about two months, and I have shot it almost every day during these past two months. I am coming from the tried and true, and I believe, underrated XF 18 f/2, so I kind of made my comparisons on this lens based on my experiences with that lens as well as other Fuji glass I have owned and used (XF 18 f/2, 23 f/1.4, 35 f/1.4, Zeiss Touit 32 f/1.8, and 56 f/1.2…..

Looking through a new world with the Fujinon XF16mmF1.4 R WR | Leigh Diprose

The focal length of the XF16mmF1.4 R WR is superb for photographing indoors and outdoors and is often overlooked by many photographers wanting something wide. Being a prime lens you will find it is a welcome challenge in your gear arsenal as you navigate the nonexistent zoom with your legs out in the field. It’s this real world experience when composing that will make you feel part of the scene as you live every moment of your surroundings. Combine the small size with a maximum aperture of F1.4 and photographs seem to ‘pop’ whenever they are printed or presented on a screen. The bokeh performance on this lens is stunning and something many photographers will find appealing when photographing the smaller things in life. If you prefer capturing landscape scenes, you will notice a natural look to them as the lens captures the majority of the surrounds at a 24mm (35mm equivalent) focal length…..

A wider angle with the Fujinon XF16 | Tom Leuntjens

I’m a prime shooter and I live at 50mm (full frame terms). When I switched to Fujifilm, the XF35 1.4 filled that spot with ease. It’s my goto lens, I love the images it produces, how it makes me feel and, how I even loved to hate that ugly lens hood. The rest of my kit consists of the the XF23 (35mm) & XF56 (85mm)… That is what I roll with on any given wedding. The XF35 (almost) never leaves my primary camera body. The other body gets fitted with what I think might come in handy.The XF23 is there as my wide angle … to be honest, it’s not my thing … I can’t explain it. It’s supposed to be my storyteller lens but I feel that it never completely tells the story or I can’t frame it like I want it … because it’s not wide enough or perhaps because it lives too close to my comfort zone (50mm) and it doesn’t push me enough. Watching a lot of photographers produce great images with a 24mm focal length , I wanted to try myself …

Going back in time to 16 mm Fuji summer | Mac Sokulski

This was the time of actually field testing the 16 mm f1.4 Fuji lens.  Wanted to see if I could live with just that lens for landscape photography, or would I miss the ultra wide zoom.  I love the fact that the 16mm is so bright.  At f1.4 and minimum focusing distance of just 15 cm, it is really easy to throw the background out of focus.  Even though the ultra wide zoom from Fuji is a really really good lens, I think I can sacrifice a little and stick with the 16 mm lens.  Since I don’t really have a choice any more, as my wife elusively appropriated that lens for herself…..

Fujifilm XF16mm f/1.4 Review and Images – The New Fast Aperture… | Matthew Maddock

The “Fujinon Nano-GI XF16mm f/1.4 R WR” lens, to give it it’s full name, is one I’ve been looking forward to for a while.  The majority of my shooting is between 24-50mm (in 35mm full-frame terms).  That range probably makes up about 95% of my images.  With the XF23mm f/1.4 and XF35mm f/1.4 there was a fast aperture hole in that range for me.  Until now I’ve been using the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens to fill that gap.  I never did go for the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens as it lacked OIS, was far more expensive and much larger than the XF18-55mm, which really is a truly fantastic lens for what many consider to be the Fujifilm ‘kit’ lens. Now that the XF16mm f/1.4 has been released we have a full range of fast primes at the wide to standard range focal lengths.  If you add in the 56mm and newly released 90mm then there is probably a fast prime lens that would suit pretty much anyone these days who shoot with an X-Series camera……

LH-XF16 – Fuji’s $100 lens hood! | Jason Pitcher

When the Fuji 16mm f1.4 was announced, they also announced an accessory lens hood to go with it. This seemed a little strange, as the 16mm comes with a perfectly good lens hood as standard. The standard hood is a modern tulip design, fairly deep and reversible. It’s made of high quality plastic, with an open design that allows you to mount circular filters inside it if you so desire. So why release another design of lens hood? Is this just cynical profiteering on poor users infected with gear acquisition syndrome? Lets take a look at the LH-XF16. Looking at the Fuji lens lineup, two very early lenses, the 18mm and the 35mm, were shipped with square metal lens hoods. Unfortunately, they also came with rubber front caps, that are renowned for falling off the hood as soon as they are touched…….

Fuji XF 16mm f1.4 R WR Lens Hood Alternative |
Ted Vieira

I know my posts have been a lot more about gear lately. It’s mainly due to the recent switch from Canon to Fuji, and that I’ve been a little under the weather the past few weeks so haven’t been doing any photo shoots or even street shooting. Feeling better so that will all be changing and you’ll start to see more posts from photo shoots and street shooting. Anyway, I’m loving the Fuji XF lens lineup. The image quality is fantastic; the lenses are relatively small and lightweight; the build quality is excellent, but one area I’m not crazy about is the typical tulip style lens hood many of the lenses come with…….

Re-visiting the Fujifilm X100T | Borge Indergaard

The initial X100T review I did can be found here: http://indergaard.net/2015/01/05/fujifilm-x100t-review/ It’s almost been a year since I initially purchased a new black Fujifilm X100T and the two conversion lenses (WCL-X100 and TCL-X100). I only had that camera for about two months. I purchased it to test it out, and I was quite surprised how much I liked it and sad to see it go when I delivered it to the new owner. I didn’t see much reason to keep the X100T around after I was done with my initial test and review – so I decided to sell it. What a mistake. I instantly missed it. It’s such a great camera to use, and so light-weight and easy to carry everywhere. I didn’t enjoy using the M240 nearly as much as I enjoyed using the X100T. But the results from the M240 with a good lens was different. The M240 tend to produce images that have an alluring beauty. Silky, smooth, but still razor-sharp, with pleasing colors. The “Leica look”, according to many……

Fujifilm XF 16mm f1.4 review | Gordon Laing

The Fujifilm XF 16mm f1.4 is a bright wide-angle prime lens for the X-series of mirrorless cameras. Announced in April 2015, it delivers fixed coverage equivalent to 24mm to capture comfortably wider views than 28mm, without the distortion of shorter, ultra-wide focal lenses. This balance makes 24mm one of the most popular focal lengths of any system. Making the XF 16mm more useful is its bright focal ratio of f1.4, allowing you to maintain hand-holdable shutter speeds in in low light without having to bump-up the sensitivity. It also allows shallow depth-of-field effects, particularly at close range when used at the minimum focusing distance of 15cm. It’s also possible to switch it to manual focus by pulling down the focusing ring which in turn reveals distance and depth-of-field scales. Completing the impressive specification is a manual aperture ring and sealing against dust and moisture, although it does not feature optical stabilisation…….

Australia’s Great Ocean Road and the Fujinon XF16 & XF56 |
Caveira Photography

I’m sure many of us feel our work-life creep into our weekend-life, which invariably leaves us feeling unrested and often stifled by a job that we otherwise enjoy. The idea of driving 6 hours on your 2 days off a week is often too great of a sacrifice, and one that we don’t see the true value in doing until we finally do it. That was my weekend. A short Saturday getaway with a good mate to Victoria, Australia’s south west to the Great Ocean Road and down to the awe inspiring Twelve Apostles……
