The “FUJINON XF16mmF2.8 R WR” features a focal length equivalent to 24mm (in the 35mm format) and has a maximum aperture of F2.8. It helps to deliver the best results from Fujifilm’s unique X-Trans™*1 CMOS sensors. Small and lightweight, the lens offers very high resolution performance due to the optical design. The XF16mmF2.8 R WR lens adopts an inner focusing system*2 driven by a stepping motor*3 for faster and quieter auto-focusing. Metal parts are used extensively on the exterior providing a premium yet robust feel, while the aperture and focusing rings have been designed to be comfortable and easy to use. The lens is also weather and dust resistant, and operates in temperatures as low as -10°C, making it ideal for shooting in a variety of conditions.
The XF16mmF2.8 R WR will expand the lineup of compact, lightweight and stylish lenses, which currently includes the FUJINON XF23mmF2 R WR, XF35mmF2 R WR, and XF50mmF2 R WR, further broadening the appeal of FUJIFILM mirrorless digital cameras.
