Fuji XF 16mm F1.4 R WR Lens Review | Patrick Leong

There are quite a few wide angle lenses to choose from if you are invested in the Fuji X Series system. Manufacturers like Fujifilm, Samyang, and Zeiss all make great wide angles. Furthermore, there are even ones that can be adapted to fit on the X Series cameras thanks to the various adapters on the market. So, why did Fujifilm feel the need to produce another wide angle lens? Well, a fully complete camera system nowadays includes many different types of lenses. To attract more buyers, especially DSLR users, Fuji needs to not only create uniquely different lenses for its system, it also needs to create lenses that DSLR users are accustomed to, and in this case, one crucial lens is a fast wide angle.
