FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Reviews

Another Fuji compact prime gem

By Matt
Rated 5 out of 5

If you're a fan of Fuji's compact prime line of lenses like I am, you'll appreciate this lens. It has the same build quality, image quality, snappy AF, and overall value that you get from the other lenses in the line with a nice wide angle of view at a very affordable price. It's small and nimble so it can literally fit in a pocket and it has weather sealing. Like most of Fuji's lenses, the optics are phenomenal. I can get pretty close to my subject with this lens and everything seems crisp and clear. Is it a super fast lens at f/2.8? No. But unless you really need to extra light or background blur that the f/1.4 offers, this lens should serve you just fine.

My favorite lens

I was in between this lens and the f1.4. Of course, I didn't want to spend more money to have the f1.4 version so I got this one instead, it is small and compact, weather-resistant which worked perfectly while shooting in the pouring rain. quality is amazing and focus is fast. This is my favorite lens paired with the x-e4 or the Xpro3

Extremely nice lens

Great wide lens for the Fiji cameras. Small and light, and plenty sharp. Also has quick auto focus.

Compact and sharp!

Perfect little travel lens. Part of the reason I love Fujifilm is their selection of small, lightweight cameras and lenses. And this a great little wide-angle lens that takes up little space in the camera bag and will fit in a pocket.

Excellent Prime Lens

It does everything well. It is perfect for street shooting or landscapes but it works fine for portraits if you zoom with your feet. Typical fine Fuji quality

Nice and Versatile Wide Angle for X-E4

By Nayoon

This lens both looks and feels great on my X-E4 body. Autofocus is very silent and fast, making it perfect for taking quick snapshots during travel. The short focal length together with the minimum aperture at 1/22 makes handheld slow-shutter photography possible even without any stabilization or ND filter. When I bring it as the only lens during trips it has proven versatile enough for landscape, food, interior, and environmental portraits. I highly recommend this lens for users who prefer portability.

Best lens for the Streets

This is my go to lens for daytime street photography. I think of it as my Henri Cartier-Bresson lens.
