New from Fuji……. | Bill Fortney

Probably no one, that is a Fuji fan or user,  is unaware of the newest lens to be released shortly. The 16mm f 1.4 is yet another of Fuji’s stellar fast lenses.  Joining the 23mm f 1.4 (35mm equiv.), the 35mm f 1.4 (50mm equiv.) and the 56mm f 1.2 (85mm equiv.)  the 16 fills that critical 24mm equivalent spot with real speed!!!!  It is close to the same size and weight of the 23mm, which is to say, in the three bears story form;  “just right”.  The lens I got to shoot at the Fuji National Sales Meeting in Phoenix this week was a late prototype, very, very close to a production lens. How good is it?  If the production model is any sharper it will have to come with warning label about picking it up, you just might cut yourself! ……
