    Cons: Significant distortion and light fall-off in RAW files, unless you apply the lens correction profile.

    Pros: Perfect companion for the X-Pro2 Optically better than the 18/2 WR sealing

    Summary: Despite the lack of frame lines, the 16/2.8 is a great wide angle match with the X-Pro2. The OVF matches the 16mm field of view, and parallax is only an issue at close distances, where it makes sense to switch to the EVF anyway. The 16/2.8 has weather sealing, which the 18/2 sorely misses. And the 16mm FoV (on APS-C) makes it a great city walkaround lens.

    Cons: High distortion in RAW format and vignetting wide open, which however can be corrected with suitable adjustments.

    Pros: Nicely sharp across the frame, razor sharp in the centre, probably the fastest auto-focusing lens on my X-T1, lovely contrast and vivid colours much like the XF23mm f/2.0, weather sealing, high build quality at a very reasonable price.

    Summary: Another great lens from Fujifilm!

    Cons: - Significant field curvature - Only f/2,8

    Pros: - Small - Great build quality - Fast autofocus - Very good sharpness - Nice close focus abilities

    Summary: Next addition to the \"f/2 WR\" serie. This 16mm is only f/2,8 but since it\'s a wide angle, it\'s not critical. It\'s the smallest lens of the bunch and overall a good surprise. It focuses fast and has excellent sharpness in the center, very good and perfectly usable sharpness in the corners even if Samyang 12mm f/2 might be slightly better. It has good close focusing abilities even if the f/1,4 version is better in this regard. Like the 35mm f/2, it has significant field curvature but I found it well corrected and less annoying on a wide angle than with a standard lens. The 16mm f/2,8 is Fuji\'s cheapest prime along with the 27mm f/2,8 pancake. It\'s a nice little lens, very convenient for travel thanks to it\'s size and weather sealing. If you don\'t need f/1,4 and the absolute best image quality, then the 16mm f/2,8 does the job brillantly.
