From the manufacturer
13 Elements in 11 Groups
The optical design includes two aspherical elements and two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements, which reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations to deliver sharp, rich image quality even at the widest aperture of F1.4.
Nano GI Coating for High Image Quality
The image quality is further enhanced by Fujifilm’s proprietary HT-EBC coating applied to the all lens surfaces and Nano GI Coating on the rear surface of G1 lens. This alters the refractive index between glass and air, to reduce ghosting and flare from diagonal incident light.
Minimum Working Distance of 15cm
By getting closer to a subject the bokeh is enhanced and perspective is more dynamic, which gives the wide-angle photographer greater creativity. Use the XF16mmF1.4 R WR to photograph a plate of food with the restaurant in the background, for example, or a water droplet on a plant with forest in the background and both the subject and its surroundings can be captured at the same time. High image quality is achieved throughout the focus range by correcting various aberrations, even at minimum working distance of 15cm, and a Floating Focus System driven by two focus groups that work in conjunction with each other according to the working distance.
High-Speed Autofocus as Fast as 0.11sec*
The focus ring comes with a depth-of-field scale, which is perfect for street photographers. By calculating the distance and adjusting the aperture setting, users can shoot spontaneously.
* Complies with CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) guidelines, internal measurement, during high performance mode.
Weather- and Dust-Resistant
The weather-resistant structure features 9 seals in 8 areas on the lens barrel. These keep the lens protected from sudden rain, dust and splashes of water.
Lightweight and Compact
At approx. 375g the lens is around 40% of the weight of its DSLR equivalent. This is great news for all photographers who want a versatile lens that delivers the highest optical performance in a very compact size.
The new FUJINON XF16mmF1.4 R WR is a weather-resistant, fixed focal length lens (24mm in 35mm format equivalent) that delivers a dramatic wide field of view and stunning image performance. The F1.4 maximum aperture in the XF16mm gives users extraordinary image quality in low-light conditions, and pleasing bokeh-rich macro photography with a minimum working distance of less than 6” for numerous creative photographic possibilities. The XF16mmF1.4 R WR features a high-speed autofocus of 0.11 seconds, a weather- and dust-resistant structure that can work in temperatures as low as 14 Degree, and great portability thanks to its compact size. The XF16mmF1.4 R WR includes a depth-of-field scale on the focus ring that is perfect for landscape, travel and street photographers who want to calculate the distance, adjust the aperture setting, and shoot spontaneously.

I also own the Fuji 10-24 f/4, 14mm 2.8, 18mm f/2, 23mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2, and 50-140mm 2.8, as well as two X-T1 bodies and an X-Pro 1. I rely on my Fuji gear for my livelihood as a freelance photographer, and it's great lenses like the 16mm f/1.4 that have given me the confidence to leave Canon behind after more than a decade as a professional FF Canon user.
The 16mm has relatively little distortion, is quiet, quick to focus, and accurate. I'm noticing that it seems to hunt/struggle to get focus lock on my X-T1 in dimmer, low-contrast situations more than it's 23mm and 14mm siblings do, especially in the middle 1-4 meter range, where I've found myself using it wide open most often and where critical AF accuracy would matter most. Making your AF point larger seems to help a little, but this kind of issue seems like it should be fixable via firmware update in the long run. And really I'm nitpicking a bit, just because it's a little slower to focus than the 23mm does not mean it's actually slow at all.
IQ is good to great, but at f/1.4 the 16mm isn't quite as tack sharp as the 23mm or 14mm seem to be when used wide-open. Now don't get me wrong, it's still an excellent lens. It just happens to have very impressive siblings. :) I've just used it to shoot a full two-page magazine spread and from what I've seen of the print proofs I have no hesitation in saying that this lens will give you excellent results, although at a wide aperture there are sharper lenses in the Fuji X family. By F/2.8 or f/4 this lens keeps up with anything else in Fuji's lineup, as well as most every other manufacturer out there.
So should you buy it? Currently, Fuji offers a variety of options comparable to the 16mm f/1.4. The 10-24mm zoom, 16-55mm zoom, 14mm f/2.8, and 18mm f/2 all either overlap or get extremely close to the 16mm's 24mm-equivalent FOV. All of these options have their own strengths and weaknesses, it just depends on your needs. My intended use of the 16mm is for close-focused shots of people or food/product with plenty of background detail blurred beautifully, and for medium distances wide-open, so I can capture a full-length portrait in the frame with plenty of context around it that's nicely blurred. It's a wonderful tool that gives me new creative options. I'm also guessing this lens will be a great "travel with just one lens" candidate, and street photographers will love it. If you're a landscape shooter or do not intend to use the shallow DOF, buy the 10-24 or the EXCELLENT 14mm and save a few bucks. For only $160 more, the 16-55mm f/2.8 is a weather-sealed constant zoom that gives you great IQ with the versatility of a zoom. So yeah, this lens isn't for everyone, but if you know you need what the 16mm f/1.4 is capable of, buy with confidence. It won't disappoint.
Update: many months and 10,000 photos later (maybe not that much) this lens is still truly a favorite, while shooting in the northwest I really took this through its paces, I accidentally dropped my camera (16mm and xpro 2) in a tide pool, well the camera and lens did just fine and are still in perfect working order. Gorgeous lens and it produces gorgeous photos
