    Fuji don't really make a bad lens - many are exceptional, some are spectacular.
    This is one of the spectacular ones.
    I was fortunate enough to pick one up second hand. 400 bucks off of new price!

    That is the good, and bad thing about Fuji lenses. They are all so good it can be hard to decide which lenses to get. :biggrin:

    I enjoy the 16mm for 10 stop filter landscape shots, composed & shot wonderfully slow.

    This one actually a stack (HDR) that was manually bracketed from an XE-1.
    Each shot (6-9 exposures) was around a minute + 40 seconds in daylight, give or take.

    Not everyone's cup of tea (true HDR work), but I enjoy spending sometimes hours with the same area of subject matter, listening for it to smile at me.

    still.

    The Fuji 16mm is one of the best wide angle portrait lenses ever

    Yes, it's the portrait side of it that's really got my attention, despite the relatively wide focal length. I'm going to Africa in January, not safari, just somewhere with loads and loads of people, in fact rarely will I be shooting one person. In that regard, it's now coming down to whether I get a (non weather resistant) X-E3 to replace my X-T1 or get this lens and right now, getting the X-E3 instead of the 16mm seems a bit silly.

    Those four photos were shot on a X-T1, of that helps with your decision.

    No it didn't, I think the decision's already been made, haha. Useful to know they were taken on the X-T1. It's all about the lenses eh? And the potential for creativity with that lens seems boundless. Thanks Bobby.

    I'm very seriously considering saving and getting this lens. I miss the wider angle images my 18mm gave me, and it doesn't appear as if the 18mm F2 WR is going to become a reality. The WR really came in handy recently when I was out biking and had the X-T1 + 23mm WR, and the weather progressed from sort of sprinkling to a steady downpour.

    @rayvonn@rayvonn Lenses always make a bigger difference than camera bodies. I can say that the Fuji 16mm is the best 24mm equivalent lens I have ever shot with. Having shot several different 24mm lenses when I shot Canon, I feel confident in making that assessment.

    @TonyTurley@TonyTurley I can't agree more about having weather sealed lenses and bodies. They are priceless when you find yourself needing them. I've put Fuji's weather sealing to the test several times and it never disappoints.

    Yes! Just bought it. Just got to get through this afternoon at work before I toddle on home tonight and take unnecessary bokeh 'test' shots of my coffee pot or something.

    Straight out of camera, wide open of course as you do when you first use a lens.

    Now the pressure, because blaming the gear is a no-no. It's all down to me now, got to get creative.

    I love the 24mm FOV, but not likely to be able to afford the 16/1.4 any time soon — unless I win the lottery tonight!

    Even without the ice showing, I can feel the chill there.
