XF16mmF1.4 R WR Revolutionizing ‘Wide’
XF16mmF1.4 R WR is a professional wide-angle prime lens that will redefine your expectations of what a lens in this class can do. With its bright maximum aperture of F1.4 and the ability to focus as close as 5.9in (15cm), photographers can combine beautiful bokeh with a uniquely wider perspective, or stop down to create sweeping scenic landscapes with stunning depth of field and detail.
Include everything I want in one composition
I love to use the XF16mmF1.4 on a stage where I can be close to the artist but also able to include the crowd and the whole environment in one composition.

Perfect ergonomic details
All the little ergonomic details, this focusing ring for example, are perfect. You always find the aperture ring at hand. This lens is really an extension of my eye.
No compromise. I would never choose an optic that sacrifices image quality in favor of a larger aperture for example... 16mm is the perfect synthesis of these elements
