Fujinon XF 16mm f1.4 R WR Lens | Clifton Beard

I have never had a 24mm equivalent truly fast lens in my inventory on either Nikon or the Fuji XF system, the fastest to date being the old Nikon 24mm f2.8 AIS or Nikon 24-70 f2.8 zoom. This is a classic focal length for wide angle images of landscapes, weddings, for travel and all sorts of things.  A few mm up or down at wide focal lengths make huge differences to how the lenses can be used and having a really wide aperture makes huge practical and creative differences. I can feel myself drifting ever further away from a comprehensive SLR system as they are feeling more and more like imaging dinosaurs, despite the undoubted imaging excellence of cameras such as the Nikon D800.  Mirrorless cameras are rapidly developing into powerful and uncompromised imaging tools with a serious weight and size advantage, so I am building a comprehensive X-System lineup that I expect will take over as my main system for not just everyday shooting, but for weddings too.  In that context it made sense to buy the new 16mm f1.4 prime for the X-system.  An additional motivator was that I had the chance to purchase the new lens at 10% off the RRP and it is unlikely that the price will reduce this far in anything like the near future……..
