Fuji has announced its new XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR lens. It has two aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements with a nine blade rounded diaphragm. Fuji claims autofocus speeds with this lens as fast as 0.11 second. It is weather sealed for pairing with the Fuji X-T1.
The aperture ring gives you 1/3 step adjustments between the marked full f/stop points. The lens is comprised of a total of 13 elements in 11 groups and contains Nano GI coatings for reduced ghosting and flare.
The new Fuji XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR lens retails for $999.95 and should ship in May 2015. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

A couple weeks back at CES 2015, Fuji unveiled it a new X-Series lens – the Fuji XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR. It provides an equivalent field of view to a 24-84mm lens on a full frame camera, which sounds pretty great at f/2.8 all the way through.
The Fuji X-A2 was just announced and features a 16.3MP APS-C sensor with a tilting LCD that lets you rotate it to be viewable from the front of the camera. It’s a “selfie” feature according to Fuji.
The X-A2 is the latest in the Fuij X-series mirrorless camera line and ships with a new Fuji XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS zoom lens, which Fuji claims delivers 3.5-stops of camera shake reduction. The X-A2 also features a new AF system, built-in WiFi and captures 1080p video. [Read more…]
