This FUJINON 16mm prime lens provides a 24mm equivalent focal length when used with Fujifilm X-series mirrorless digital cameras. With a minimum working distance of less than 6 inches, this wide prime lens is great for capturing close-ups. It’s also an ideal lens for shooting street photography, travel and landscapes.
With its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, the Fujifilm FUJINON XF 16mm lens works well in a range of lighting settings. Whether it’s an overcast evening, a candlelit wedding or softly lit interior, this lens will be able to capture detail in your subjects. The aperture also helps in selective focus control to achieve precise shots quickly.
Chromatic aberrations and distortions are significantly reduced with the two aspherical elements combined with two extra-low dispersion elements in this FUJINON lens. This results in sharp corner-to-corner definition in your shots with exceptional illumination. Unwanted halos, haze and blur are greatly diminished to achieve clear, balanced shots with stunning colour for a professional feel.
A Nano Gradient Index coating has been applied to alter the refractive index between the glass and air. The entire surface of each element of this lens has also been coated in an HT-EBC coating. These coatings help eliminate lens flare and ghosting in difficult lighting conditions. This gives your images clarity and light correction without any distractions or distortions.
This lens’ weather resistant construction takes on dust and cold temperatures as low as -10°C. With nine different seals in eight areas to prevent dust and moisture from entering the lens, this WR lens can take on the outdoor elements. Take it with you on travels or outdoor shoots with confidence.
Autofocus is fast and quiet with this FUJINON XF lens. The motor pairs with a two group floating focus system for quick precision in as little as 0.11 seconds. If you want to switch over to manual, a depth of field scale enables you to preset focusing options so you can act quickly when the opportune moment arises.
Nine rounded diaphragm blades help create pleasing bokeh while maintaining focus on your subject. Create soft moods that bring detail into your subject and blur out the background. This is lovely when shooting weddings, portraiture or nature shots.

There are various filters you could try. A polarising filter can be great to make skies bluer and manage glare. You could also invest in a neutral density filter if you’re wanting to smooth out flowing water such as waterfalls or the ocean.
For accuracy and precision we recommend a sturdy tripod when doing landscape and architecture photography, particularly if you’re planning to shoot any images using long exposures.
