How Good Is the Affordable the Fujifilm XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Lens?

One of the calling cards of the Fujifilm X Series is professional features and image quality in significantly smaller packages, and the XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR continues that by giving photographers a useful wide angle focal length that fits in the palm of the hand. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Dylan Goldby, this great video review takes a look at the Fuji XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR lens. Priced at just $399, the 16mm f/2.8 is quite affordable, making it an intriguing option for a variety of applications, particularly travel work, where its small size and light weight will be appreciated. It also comes with a variety of useful features, including: 

  • Two aspherical elements for less distortion and better sharpness
  • Super EBC coating for less flares and ghosting and deeper contrast
  • Stepping autofocus motor quiet enough for both video and stills applications
  • Weather-sealing for dust and moisture protection
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Altogether, the 16mm f/2.8 looks like quite a respectable option. Check out the video above for Goldby's full thoughts on the lens.
