Product detailsFUJINON XF 16mm F1.4R WR Lens
The XF16mmF1.4R WR lens has a fixed focal length of 16mm (24mm in 35mm format equivalent) and offers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning optical performance. The F1.4 maximum aperture delivers high image quality in low-light conditions and bokeh-rich macro photography with a minimum working distance of 15cm (approx. 6"). Featuring high-speed auto focus, a weather and dust resistant structure that can work in temperatures as low as -10°C (14°F), and great portability thanks to its compact size, your shooting possibilities are boundless. Fast aperture wide-angle lens for landscapes, portraits, street and macro photography.
13 elements in 11 groups and Nano GI Coating for high image quality
The optical design of the XF16mmF1.4R WR lens 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. 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 the 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 (approx. 6”)
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, or a water droplet on a plant with a 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 the minimum working distance of 15cm (approx. 6"), and using 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 0.11 seconds*
The Fujinon XF16mmF1.4R WR lens features a fast 0.11 second autofocus speed and nearly silent operation so it's ideal for photojournalism and discreet shooting.
Focus ring with depth-of-field scale
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, you can shoot more spontaneously.
Weather- and dust-resistant
The weather-resistant structure of the XF16mmF1.4R WR features 9 seals in 8 areas on the lens barrel. These keep the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water.
Lightweight and compact
At approx. 375g (approx. 0.8lb), the lens is around 40% of the weight of its DSLR equivalent. This is ideal for photographers who want a versatile lens that delivers the highest optical performance in a very compact size.
Optional Lens Hood LH-X16
The pursuit of premium quality extends to the high-precision finish and build of the metal lens hood (sold separately*).
