The XF16mmF1.4 is a wide angle lens with a fast aperture at a fixed focal length of 16mm (24mm in 35mm formatequivalent). This weather resistant lens offers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning optical performance. The XF16mm delivers high image quality in low-light conditions and bokeh-rich macro photography due to its F1.4 maximum aperture. The newly-developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology effectively inhibits ghosting and flare, producing clear, crisp images. Featuring high-speed autofocus, compactdesign, a weather and dust-resistant finish means this lens can be used in almost any environment. Ideal for landscapes, portraits, street and macro photography.
Fujifilm FUJINON XF16mmF1.4 R WR Lens
Lens Wrapping Cloth
From the manufacturer
13 Elements in 11 Groups
The optical design includes two aspherical elements and two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements, which reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations to deliver sharp, rich image quality even at the widest aperture of F1.4.
Nano GI Coating for High Image Quality
The image quality is further enhanced by Fujifilm’s proprietary HT-EBC coating applied to the all lens surfaces and Nano GI Coating on the rear surface of G1 lens. This alters the refractive index between glass and air, to reduce ghosting and flare from diagonal incident light.
Minimum Working Distance of 15cm
By getting closer to a subject the bokeh is enhanced and perspective is more dynamic, which gives the wide-angle photographer greater creativity. Use the XF16mmF1.4 R WR to photograph a plate of food with the restaurant in the background, for example, or a water droplet on a plant with forest in the background and both the subject and its surroundings can be captured at the same time. High image quality is achieved throughout the focus range by correcting various aberrations, even at minimum working distance of 15cm, and a Floating Focus System driven by two focus groups that work in conjunction with each other according to the working distance.
High-Speed Autofocus as Fast as 0.11sec*
The focus ring comes with a depth-of-field scale, which is perfect for street photographers. By calculating the distance and adjusting the aperture setting, users can shoot spontaneously.
* Complies with CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) guidelines, internal measurement, during high performance mode.
Weather- and Dust-Resistant
The weather-resistant structure features 9 seals in 8 areas on the lens barrel. These keep the lens protected from sudden rain, dust and splashes of water.
Lightweight and Compact
At approx. 375g the lens is around 40% of the weight of its DSLR equivalent. This is great news for all photographers who want a versatile lens that delivers the highest optical performance in a very compact size.

The focus is quick and nearly silent.
This lens is glued to my camera (Fuji X-T2).
The only downside I can see is that the lens is a bit big and heavy for the mirrorless standards but it balances nicely with the X-T2. No miracles can be done, this is a 16mm (24mm equivalent) f/1.4 lens. If you try to find the Full Frame lenses equivalent to this one you will get much bigger and heavier lenses. I can sincerely say that I'm used to the size and weight and don't find that to be problematic.
The tiniest of vignetting at F1.4 - see my beach photo above - but that is splitting hairs and easily processed out. All photos in my review are unprocessed jpegs from the RAW originals.
You must be interested in this lens otherwise you wouldn't be reading these reviews. My advice to you, if you can afford the slightly heavy price tag, is to buy it! It is an amazing it now, you're going to anyway so why not now??? :)
It is a very versatile lens with a surprising minimum focus distance. It is very sharp, renders beautifully with excellent resolution and has accurate autofocus performance.
The build quality of this lens is superb. The clicked aperture ring is smooth and offers just the right amount of resistance. The manual focus clutch is also reassuringly smooth and accurate.
The only criticism this lens may attract is that the autofocus, while quiet, will be picked up by the internal or a camera attached shotgun microphone. If you don’t do video however, there is nothing to fault with this lens. 5/5
I've been a Canon shooter for years, initially as a hobby documenting my family growing up and eventually turning into a career. I shoot weddings and recently commercial/PR events. My main camera has been a 5D Mark III for the last couple of years, and I own most of Canon's finest lenses. I prefer primes, and I own the usual focal lengths (35mm, 50mm and 85mm L versions), but I also have the 16-35L ii, 24-70L ii and 70-200L ii. I have a pretty sweet collection of Canon's finest lenses.
A while ago I began to realise that, perhaps due to my seeing the Canon and bag-full of lenses as "work things" and partly because my back was getting knackered from years of carrying them around, I wasn't bringing my camera with me on family outings as much. The whole reason I got into photography was to document my family life, so I needed to do something about it.
At around that time Fuji had released the X100, so I bought one and fell in love with it in some (many) ways, but ultimately it was just a bit too slow to cope with taking photos of my hyperactive offspring. I sold it and resigned myself to a life of carting a DSLR around on family outings in between trips to the chiropractor.
Skip forward a year or two and I borrowed a friend's X-T1 and the XF 35mm 1.4. I immediately loved the camera. The lens didn't immediately grab me as much, perhaps because I was used to how a 50mm f/1.4 looked (the equivalent on the 5D I was used to) looked, but I knew there and then that I loved the Fuji mirrorless system, so I bought one along with the 23mm f/1.4 and the 56mm f/1.2.
I used the X-T1 with those two lenses initially as my "fun" camera setup, with my wheely case full of full frame Canon gear being my workhorse equipment. Until one day I brought the Fuji and those two spectacular lenses along to a wedding gig. I pretty much used them all day long, until the evening dancefloor action when I needed flash. Since then I've found myself using that same Fuji setup for the majority of the day on a handful of weddings, with my bag of Canon gear sitting there looking rather sorry for itself.
I'd pretty much made the decision to move over to using a Fuji system as my main set of equipment, but the rumours of the X-T2 coming out soon sealed the deal. I'm on board. If anyone shooting weddings is in any doubt as to whether they would be taking a step back from using a 5D Mark III (standard equipment for most Canon wedding photographers), just search Google for "Fuji X Wedding". There are some people out there doing incredible work with these little cameras.
Anyway, that was quite a longwinded, totally off topic ramble.
I've always been a prime shooter, but the widest I'd ever used was the 35mm on the full frame Canon system, always using the 24-70 2.8 or 16-35 2.8 for wider shots. I never got on with them as I tend to work with available light, but I could never justify buying a the Canon 24mm 1.4 as it was so crazy expensive, and the 24-70 ii was soooooooo sharp. However, with a widest aperture of 2.8 it often wasn't fast enough to deliver the goods when I wanted those wide shots in low light (bridal prep, first dance when not using off camera flash etc).
I decided to give the Fuji XF 16mm 1.4 a go. It arrived yesterday. Already I'm pretty much decided that this, alongside the X-T1, is my favourite camera/lens combination for the way I shoot. It is as sharp as any Canon L lens I've used, perhaps shaper than anything other than the 24-70 L ii, and the way it renders out of focus areas is simply sublime. I didn't expect there to be a huge difference between a crop sensor 16mm 1.4 lens and a full frame 24mm f/2.8, but there most definitely is, at least with this lens. You get that "prime pop", but with a wide field of view. Somehow it seems to blur out the background better than it should do.
I don't know how they've done it, but Fuji have created what I consider to be one of the finest prime lenses out there. For "documentary wedding photography", whatever that is, it is perfect. Likewise as a family-man's lens, it's perfect.
I love every Fuji lens I own, but after just two days of shooting I know this is my favourite. I absolutely adore it.
As soon as the X-T2 is released I'll be buying two of them and selling all of my Canon gear, using the 16mm, 23mm, 35mm and 56mm for my work and personal photography. All of that can fit into a standard sized rucksack. Plus I'll be saving about £60 a month on chiropractor bills. Winning.
Fuji - I salute you.
