Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR Review

Fujifilm has done a wonderful job filling out the lenses for their X-mount camera system since it’s beginning in 2012.  Among my personal favorites have been the more recent compact f/2 series lenses, that many have dubbed the “Fujicron” lenses, as a nod to the high quality, super small Leica Summicron lenses. These include the XF 23mm f/2, the XF 35mm f/2 and the XF 50mm f/2. The lens reviewed today, while sporting an f/2.8 maximum aperture instead of f/2, can be thought to be the final important entry into the Fujicron club. (Technically, we should call f/2.8 Fujifilm lenses “Fujimarits” if we are creating new portmanteaus of Leica lens names, but, well, I don’t really care). The XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR is a very compact wide-angle lens that gives a field of view equivalent to a classic 24mm lens on full-frame.  Combined with the other Fujicrons, a complete wide to telephoto lens system using fast compact primes can be created for the X-Mount system.  The other Fujicrons have had excellent optical quality despite their affordable price and small size; does the 16mm f/2.8 match its sisters?
