This lens is also moisture and dust resistant, which makes it a great pair with the XT-2 or X-Pro 2 – not every XF prime is weather resistant, so this is an important point for photographers who know they’ll be exploring outdoors. I put the 16mm through a lot of punishment while testing this lens, particularly in heavy rain. Both the lens and X-Pro 2 are still working smoothly, and I didn’t experience any issues at all. It’s worth noting that the lens doesn’t offer optical stablisation however, which would have made it an absolute low light beast with the fast aperture. One other aspect which was a pleasant surprise is how closely the lens can focus, boasting a minimum focusing distance of 15cm. This was remarkably useful when I was travelling, since I could use it when looking for unique angles for food, landscapes, and other snaps…..
