FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Overview

Complementing the lens itself, the black FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the sleek wide-angle prime with a 49mm UV filter.

FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens (Black)

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.

Chiaro 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 49mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission

Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Polished Optical Glass

Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.

Multi-Coating

Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.

UV Protection

The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

Secure Attachment

It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.

Front Threads

The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Reviews

Nice and Versatile Wide Angle for X-E4

By Nayoon
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-15

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.

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.

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

Fun lens

There are a lot of weird videos online saying this lens isn't sharp in the corners etc. I think they're a bit misguided. This is a small, fun lens with weather sealing. There's nothing within the same price range with the same features. The cheap third party options are MF and lack weather sealing. The 1.4 version is larger and more than twice the price. I'm happy with my purchase.

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.

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

Does the lens hood allow for the use of a circular polarizer? Photos appear like it wouldn't.

Yes, you can use a polarizer with the hood but it may be difficult to rotate the filter with the hood on. I would recommend taking the hood off for easy rotation.

How does sharpness compare to the 16mm 1.4? How does that lens stopped down to f/2.8 compare to this wide open?
Asked by: Brendan
While I personally believe the optical quality of the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens would be superior compared to the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens, I have not seen any comprehensive testing of the two lenses side-by-side comparing the sharpness of the different apertures you mention above. That being said, from my brief usage with the FUJIFILM XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens, I think it has great optical performance and as a great option for the price compared to the 16mm f/1.4 lens. However, do note that you may purchase the lens, and if you test it and it does not work for your planned usage needs, you would have 30 days from the original purchase date to return the lens for an exchange or refund.
