Review – Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 R WR lens | Jonas Jacobsson

Fujfilm Nordic sent me this lens and I have had it with me and on my X-T1 for the past week and a half more or less. Almost glued to the camera. I was so eager to try this new weather resistant wide-angle that I actually couldn’t wait for the delivery guy so I went and picked it myself at the delivery firm. I’m a huge fan of the XF 14 mm f/2.8 (and wide-angle in general) and when the news of this new lens got out I was obviously very curious to see how it could perform, how it felt and if it’s something that should have a place in your bag. The new Fujinon XF16mm F1.4 R WR lens is the latest addition to the X-series of lenses. It continues to build on the trend of fast primes that has made Fujifilm very relevant on the market and very well spoken of. Complementing the 23 mm, 35 mm and 56 mm this new 16 mm (24 mm equivalent in full frame) comes with a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4, a clutch mechanism with distance scale for manual focus (like the on the 14 mm and 23 mm) and weather resistance to go along nicely with the Fujifilm X-T1 camera……..
