Fujinon XF 16mm f/1.4 WR Review by Tomash (FUJILOVE)

First things first: when I review a piece of equipment (a lens, a camera, a tripod), I really, honestly don’t care so much about all the technical specifications. Naturally, I know what I am using, I know which aperture I need and what angle of view the lens is giving me. But I don’t analyse distortion and aberration differences at various apertures and I don’t zoom my photographs 200% to see if the edge of the wall or the eyebrows are tack sharp. If you are expecting this kind of review, please look for it somewhere else. What counts for me is what character of a photograph this particular lens is giving me and how easy and intuitive it is to use.

I have reviewed both photography and general computer related software and hardware on my website. My reviews are often along the lines of what it is like to use the product. They are rarely about the technical specs. I find those kinds of reviews to be more along the lines of what most people are seeking. The technical specs can be found on the manufacturer's product literature if the reader wants that information.
