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:Tropicalization - Compactness - Optical and mechanical quality
Opinion:Bought to leave it fixed on the XE3. It does not disappoint: optical and mechanical quality really very good and deadly coupled with the XE3. Focal length equivalent to 24mm on FF lends itself really well to being carried around all the time. Low maximum yield weight. I photograph everything and it never disappoints. Amazing sharpness at full aperture (in the center), it becomes a blade if diaphragmated (4.0/5.6) uniforming the yield to the whole frame. Really recommended.
Pros:Value for money, compactness, WR, general yield
Opinion:Great goal, there's not much to say. As you would expect from a recent lens with this opening, yield and sharpness remain good even opening all the diaphragm. It is a lens that produces excellent images, faithful, without great defects. The maximum opening at 2.8 still allows you to take advantage of a slight bokeh if you take sufficiently close shots. Autofocus is in the standards of other fujicrons. Its strong point is definitely compactness, the 16mm is certainly not a handyman's optics, and it is almost always necessary to combine it with another lens: this can be kept in your pocket without problems and carry it with you in all situations. Ultimately it is a point of view to recommend and consider, also because, if you are looking for a similar wide angle in this price range, there are not many alternatives. PS. If you are amateur and already own one of the zooms of the kit (16-50, 15-45), I feel instead to advise against it: half an opening stop does not, in this case, make a difference.
Pros:Size and weight, ergonomics, overall optical quality, sharpness and yield
Cons:Maybe the TA at 2.8
Opinion:Fantastic lens: very compact and light, of excellent workmanship and quality, it is very well connuwn with x-pro 3 glue. Very quick and quiet focus, also beautiful the supplied lampshon, has excellent ergonomics. Excellent optical quality, very clear lens (and the maximum reaches it perhaps between f 4.0 and 5.6). Very suitable as a travel lens and /or reportage, for street photography, and in general also as walk-around or go-to lens. The only defect may be having the TA at 2.8, but it would obviously have been affected by the weight/footprint and the price. Very recommended!
Cons:brightness not high, but that's what you put into account at the time of purchase
Opinion:I've had this vision for just over a year. For a couple of months he lived with his older brother, brighter, then I preferred to keep this, having considered it more suitable for my needs because of its compactness and lightness. I use it on the X-Pro along with the other fixes in the f:2 series. After all, the diaphragms that I use today (from 5.6 to 11) is completely equivalent to 16mm f:1.4, in all respects, which I have seen after many and many comparisons between my two 16mm. Photographer since 1968 and despite having owned many machines and optics, even very expensive, I have never understood what is the magic or the soul of a lens that, for me, is and remains a metal barrel (today many are plastic) with inside lenses that have the function of returning with fidelity and precision the scene between the viewfinder. This little 16mm does its duty, very well for what I need, and that's enough for me. Besides it costs the right (paid new 380 euros ). If the intended use was that of reportage in dark environments, then I certainly suggest the 16mm f: 1.4. In my kit I also have the 16/80mm and the 16/50 f:2.8. Compared to the small guy in question, the zoom pro is very similar while the larger zoom gives a little to the edges at T.A. But in my opinion the comparison with the zooms, bulky and heavy, does not hold up. With the X-Pro it is more logical to prefer compact optics, with zooms I see better X-T or X-H.
