The Fujifilm 16mm f1.4 R WR XF lens is a lightweight, weather-resistant prime suitable for a wide-variety of subjects including travel, landscape, portrait, street and macro photography. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture enables the use of faster shutter speeds, which is particularly useful when shooting handheld in low light conditions. Shooting possibilities are expanded further thanks to its 15cm minimum focusing distance, which allows you to create striking, bokeh-rich close-ups with a beautifully soft, blurred background.
13 elements in 11 groups and Nano GI Coating for high image quality
The optical design includes 2 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 F/1.4. 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 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 XF16mm F/1.4 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 2 focus groups that work in conjunction with each other according to the working distance.
High-speed autofocus as fast as 0.11sec*1
A Rear Focusing System is used for high-speed autofocus. Autofocus, as fast as 0.11sec is achieved by a built-in high-torque DC coreless motor driving the focus unit. This makes the lens ideal for street shooting and portraiture.
*1 Complies with CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) guidelines, internal measurement, during high performance mode, according to Fujifilm as of 16th April 2015
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, users can shoot spontaneously.
Weather, Dust, and Freeze Resistance
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. And the XF16mmF1.4 R WR features a design that absorbs the temperature difference between the outer and inner parts of the lens to minimize the impact on optical parts and also uses electronic parts that guarantee operation in low temperatures down to -10?.
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.
Accessories, Lens Hood LH-X16 *Sold separately
The pursuit of premium quality extends to the high-precision finish of the metal lens hood, and multiplies the pleasure of ownership. *Available in September 2015
