Cons: distortion, distortion, DISTORTION, dark, dark, dark
Opinion: Have tested the lens and may eventually buy it when Fuji offers a good discount (regular price here is a RIDICULOUS EUR 400 !!!). I can say I like almost everything on this lens. BUT. This lens distortion of RAW files is HUGE - feels like a prehistoric compared to modern Canon, Nikon or Sony lenses! And compared to Fuji 1.4 own lens (which is stellar) this one is absolutely horrible.
And when you let the camera correct this HUGE curvature, the corners become useless ... ;-(
So, in summary, this lens is useless for landscapes but good for street and general use. I think I will buy it when I get a s/h one or when Fuji discounts it to a more realistic 250-300 EUR.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Small and light, Sharp central area, AF fast.
Cons:I don't know.
Opinion:Small and light mounted on xt-3 behaves well. AF is fast, always hooks in good light conditions, suffers slightly in low light. The blur is good of course when the subject in focus is very close. At full open it is crisp in the central areas, softer than the peripheral areas. I use it as a secondary lens, when the 35mm f/2 (my primary lens) is not enough for me. I think the price is in line with the build quality.
Opinion:I've been using it for 4 months now, but love never started. Cold and soulless never made me shout "wow" when I saw a picture of her. Fast and small, here end the praise. It's worth the money it costs, without working miracles even as sharpness. For sale for passage to older sister 1.4. Recommended only if you are looking for compactness, aware of the limits.
Opinion:I find this an excellent lens in line with the 23mm and 35mm, offers a fantastic aperture that adapts to many uses. AF fast, really nice bokeh, light and compact, solid air, is weather sealed, use it with an XT-2 also tropicalized without fear of weather conditions. I recommend it as a lens to have in your outfit.
Opinion:I State that I bought this lens from a day and then I could try only for some shots in the air, however, I insert in my gallery. On My YouTube channel, you also find the unboxing with the first impressions hot. As For the use; Firstly I have to say that for the kind I do mostly and therefore street, it's a too much fun lens. The focal length of 16, a 24 equivalent on FF, is in my opinion a perfect length because it allows to give air to the scene. The Street is not done with a 200 but with goals like this, you approach the subject, choose the PDR and click. Show Since you can really take a big breath and cmq going to look at the photos I realized a lady sharpness, then even cropping, do not lose anything. As For the speed of AF I already knew what I would find and actually the speed is not bad and then you want to put even the aesthetics? The flower hood is too "cute" and is that it is cool, if you want to see it go watch the video on my channel. Mounted on xt20 The machine is really very light and cmq practically small small. Coming from a 18/55, practically the 16 is little more than half. The shots I made I have differently diaphragmati and it seems to me (but I promise to squeeze much more) that also TA, there is a detail and a sharpness. Initial Evaluation, absolutely positive. Upcoming updates in the future:-) You Can see the first shots I made in a gallery I specifically created for the 16th, also below the link of the Unboxing video of the same 16. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QCe8XGC0qk&t=193s
