General info

1.Has a metal mount
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.
2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

375g

170g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.minimum focal length

16mm

35mm

A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
5.maximum focal length

16mm

35mm

A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
6.has or is a prime lens

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
2.optical zoom

1x

1x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

Aperture

1.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.40

f/2.00

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
2.widest aperture at maximum focal length

1.4f

2f

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
3.Has rounded aperture blades
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.
4.aperture blades

9

9

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.
5.smallest aperture at maximum focal length

16f

2f

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.
6.smallest aperture at minimum focal length

16f

16f

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

Focus

1.Has focus motor

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.
2.Can focus to infinity
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.
3.has a silent focus motor built into the lens
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
4.Has full-time manual focus
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16mm F1.4 R WR
Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm F2 R WR
With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.
5.minimum focus distance

0.15m

0.3m

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.
