Digital Camera World Verdict

Launched back in 2012, the Fujinon XF14mm F2.8 R is one of the very oldest lenses left in the current Fujifilm X-mount lens line-up - and almost as old as this interchangeable mirrorless system itself. 

Despite this the XF 14mm is still the widest lens currently made by Fujifilm - although there are wider options in terms of zooms with the XF8-16 f/2.8 mm & XF10-24mm f/4. It won't hold this distinction much longer, however, as Fujifilm has announced that an 8mm f/3.5 lens will be available this year (see the latest XF lens roadmap) .
