The lens has been constructed with weather-sealing at nine points around the barrel, helping protect it against dust, rain, and snow. It can also operate in temperatures as low as 14°F.
Beautiful on the Inside
It’s not just great looks that the XF16mmF2.8 R WR has going for it, it also benefits from the precision quality imaging that is synonymous with the FUJINON name.
Inside, there are ten lens elements in eight groups, the use of two aspherical elements suppress spherical aberrations and field curvature. The result is outstanding edge-to-edge image quality.
The internal autofocus system is driven by a stepping motor. This ensures precision focusing that operates quickly and in almost complete silence.
