For the new in the Fujifilm naming series, let us decode characters that come with this 16mm lens.
First, the XF means a high-quality lens with metal construction and lens mounts, larger apertures, and aperture rings on the lens. The budget lens of Fujifilm is the XC series.
The R with F2.8R means aperture ring. For lack of code to use, Fujifilm used R.
And WR stands for weather resistant.
So, the XF16mm F/2.8R WR lens is a fixed focal length lens with F/2.8 opening and has weather sealing to it.
As you can see it has a metal mount to it. And its build quality is superb. It is very compact and lightweight also at only 155g with the lens caps attached.
