Continuing FUJIFILM's series of compact, portable primes, the black XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR is a 24mm-equivalent wide-angle lens, well-suited to landscape, nature, and architectural shooting. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture balances size and speed, and is suitable for working in available lighting conditions while also limiting the overall size and weight of the lens for everyday use. The optical design features two aspherical elements to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations in order to produce greater sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super EBC coating is also used to control flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in bright and backlit conditions. Complementing the optics is a stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, which provides quick and especially quiet focusing performance. Additionally, the lens is weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

Prime wide-angle lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 24mm equivalent focal length.
Moderately bright f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in available light conditions and also helps to maintain a compact form factor.
Two aspherical elements limit distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, affords fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and video applications.
The lens body incorporates weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for X-Pro2 I doubt this lens will ever come off my X-Pro2, as it is ideal for situations that are the sweet spot of the X-Pro2. I use my X-T2 for everything else, and while my 16/1.4 is a superior lens, mostly used on the X-T2 with battery grip for awards presentations in often low light, but it is too big for the X-Pro2. I dont need another lens for the X-Pro2 to make me happy. Sharp, super fast autofocus, weather resistant...everything one wants for the travel light, street and travel world of the X-Pro2. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great travel lens Ive always loved the 24mm equivalent focal length.  It started with the Canon 24 1.4L but I moved to Fuji to save on weight.  It was then I realized that Fujis 16 1.4 was sharper than Canon.  I didnt use it much though because of its size and weight.  Now I have the best of both worlds with the GFXR+23mm for ultimate quality and the XE3+16 f/2.8 for portability.  It is quite sharp at f/5.6 and creatively soft at 2.8 with nice light characteristics.  Great only lens solution.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leica quality Fuji prices Sharp, contrasty and extremely well built at a price you cant pass up. What else is there to say? Well done Fujifilm! This is the lens that is always on either my Xpro1 or Xt1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeper! Nice lens, sharp, fast focus, quiet, small and light, and doesnt break the budget, whats not to like? I have the 50 f2, awesome lens, tried the 23 f2 and didnt like that (maybe i had a bad copy), the 16 is better. tried the Laowa 9mm, too dark in the corners. Looks like it would work well for video also should the need arise.  Bob

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little lens Small, light weight and a perfect little walk around wide angle on my X-T20.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel lens Loved my old Canon 24mm 1.4...moved to Fuji... Loved my Fuji 16mm f/1.4 but always needed a travel friendly 24mm equivalent.  Now I have a 23mm GFX and this 16mm f/2.8.  Perfect situation.  23mm for maximum quality and this one for travel and minimal compromise.  Feels weightless and sharp as a tack at 5.6.  Portrait/night soft at 2.8.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small and light; quick and nimble Glad that fujifilm continues to support the small and light lens system. It has a good build quality and quick focusing motors. There needs to be good technique to minimize the bits of distortion that happens with most lenses of this field of view. I appreciate the close focal distance it allows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet little beast! What a great little lens! Looks good. Feels solid. Sharp images. Fun perspective. I love the stout stature! Very unobtrusive- looking forward to taking this to the streets- this lens will get a lot of use.
