It’s official now: Fujifilm has just announced a new Fujinon lens, the XF16mmF1.4 R WR. It will be added to the X-Series interchangeable lens line-up in mid-May 2015.
“The lens has a fixed focal length of 16mm (24mm in 35mm format equivalent) and offers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning optical performance. The F1.4 maximum aperture delivers high image quality in low-light conditions and bokeh-rich macro photography with the minimum working distance of 15cm. Featuring high-speed autofocus, a weather- and dust-resistant structure that can work in temperatures as low as -10°C, and great portability thanks to its compact size, the shooting possibilities are further expanded.
The FUJINON fast aperture lens quintet is now complete. The XF16mmF1.4 R WR is the latest addition to the popular XF23mmF1.4 R, XF35mmF1.4 R, XF56mmF1.2 R, and XF56mmF1.2 R APD lens.”
