Fujifilm Philippines launches XF16mm f2.8R WR

Alongside the announcement of X-T30, Fujifilm is launching a new prime lens – the XF16mm f2.8R WR.

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.
