I am lost for words and that does not happen very often, this new Fujinon XF16MM F/1.4 WR is just stunning ! One of my biggest reasons changing over from Nikon to Fuji was the Glass and size of the system of course but the glass and future glass was the draw so I took a leap of faith away from Nikon’s amazing pro glass and it looks like I landed on a bed of four leaf clovers ! Fuji are just making one amazing lens after the other. I have only had limited time to try out this new lens as I have been so busy but here are a few images from last weekend. I will aim to get some more images in Brighton this weekend if I can sneak some time in for myself.
Its full frame equivalent of 24mm is just stunning for Street. I have been going with the trend in Street for a while were getting close is not close enough but have always wanted to go back to my old film ways of something wide and something long. Here she is the something wide, boom the 16mm is in the room and this could be my very latest bolt on the camera and leave it there lens taking over from my 35mm f/1.4 that found itself welded to my camera for so long. All I need now is the 90mm f/2 and I will be all set to shoot Street all day and night anywhere in the world. I think I am a little in love with this lens, and that has not happened for a very long time.
