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…….
