Fuji Patents XF 16mm F/1.8 Lens

Fuji Patents XF 16mm F/1.8 Lens

Fuji has patented an XF 16mm f/1.8 lens for use with their X-series cameras. Interestingly Fuji already has a 16mm wide angle prime in the XF series, the XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR Lens, we can only guess that the decrease in maximum aperture will make this lens more wallet friendly. It is unclear from the patent literature if the lens will be a WR lens. Check out the translated details below:
