Unveiled: Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens for X-Mount Cameras


The XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR is Fujifilm’s newest lens, bringing increased versatility and imaging potential to the X-Mount system with a 35mm format equivalent focal length of 24mm and a bright, f/1.4 maximum aperture, which is adjustable in 1/3 EV steps. Together, these features provide excellent light-gathering ability during dusk, nighttime, or indoor shooting situations, along with an expansive angle of view that can be used by landscape photographers to better capture the drama of a scene, or by wedding photographers to fit large groups comfortably within their frame.

A minimum focus distance of 6" allows one to photograph a subject, even at close proximity, while the lens’s wide maximum aperture range and nine-blade diaphragm can also be used to prevent distracting backgrounds, rendering them with soft, natural-looking highlights. Additionally, a DOF scale on the focus ring offers the ability to calculate and select the appropriate f/stop for the precise creative expression made possible by selective focus.

13 elements in 11 groups, including two aspherical lenses, plus two ED glass elements, help ensure clear and sharp results while Nano-GI coating further serves to reduce ghosting and flare.

To further ensure that the Fujifilm XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens is always ready to serve your creativity, it features a weather- and dust-resistant design that can function at temperatures as low as 14°F. In addition to its ultra-compact form factor, this lens’s ability to quietly achieve focus in a little as 0.11 seconds makes it an excellent choice for discreet and spontaneous photography.
