The Fujifilm XF lens range has expanded with a new 16mm f/1.4 wide-angle lens. The Fujinon Lens XF16mm F1.4 R WR will be added to the X-Series interchangeable lens line-up in mid-May 2015. The lens has the ability to deliver optimal image quality in low light conditions.
The lens has 9 weather seals in 8 areas on the lens barrel. This protects the lens from a sudden change in the weather conditions like unexpected rains. Another feature is the focus ring, which comes with a depth-of- field scale. This is extremely useful for photographers who are into street photography as it will help them to note the subject distance and thus use a suitable aperture for maximum control over the depth of field. The lens uses a rear focusing system for increased autofocus speed, which is 0.11 seconds. This is perfect for photographers who are into portraiture.
