Valhalla – WEBWIRE

Valhalla, N.Y., April 16, 2015 FUJIFILM North America Corporation announced the new FUJINON XF16mmF1.4 R WR, a weather-resistant, fixed focal length lens (24mm in 35mm format equivalent) that delivers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning image performance. The F1.4 maximum aperture in the XF16mm gives users extraordinary image quality in low-light conditions, and pleasing bokeh-rich macro photography with a minimum working distance of less than 6” for numerous creative photographic possibilities.
The XF16mmF1.4 R WR features a high-speed autofocus of 0.11 seconds, a weather- and dust-resistant structure that can work in temperatures as low as 14°F, and great portability thanks to its compact size. The XF16mmF1.4 R WR includes a depth-of-field scale on the focus ring that is perfect for landscape, travel and street photographers who want to calculate the distance, adjust the aperture setting, and shoot spontaneously.
Perfect match for the FUJIFILM X-T1
The XF16mmF1.4 R WR pairs perfectly with the award-winning FUJIFILM X-T1, a weather-resistant premium interchangeable lens camera with a large OLED electronic viewfinder (EVF). It has the latest generation 16.3 Megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor and an EXR Processor II that allows photographers to capture amazing, high resolution images anywhere.
