Fujinon XF16mm f/2.8 R WR: small on size, big on style

Fujifilm has announced the Fujinon XF 16mm f/2.8 R WR, a 24mm equivalent lens that adds a wide-angle optic to the current line-up of X-series prime lenses. Fittingly enough, it's a perfect partner for the Fujifilm X-T30 that has also just been unveiled by the company.

We got to take the lens for a quick test drive ahead of our full review, and found it to be a very pleasing piece of glass. As you'd expect of a Fujifilm optic it is gloriously designed, remaining lightweight at just 155g despite the robust metal exterior, and boasts weather resistance and operability down to -10°C/14°F.
