Rainy Night in Tokyo with Fuji’s XF 16mm f/1.4

Heading out for the night

Wow, this is an incredible lens. To be more specific, this is the Fuji XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR. It was a rainy night when I headed out for these images and the weather resistance came in handy.

I’ve used a few wides in the past, but most of them are f/2.8 some are f/2, but very few have the speed of a f/1.4 lens. This lens also has an extremely close focus distance; this combined with f/1.4 gives you some interesting composition options. In addition to the speed, and the close focus ability, the lens has very low distortion, is very sharp and renders colors beautifully. It’s a keeper.

An all time favorite from Shinjuku Station
A mysterious big hole that forms in the middle of Tokyo every night
Small dark alley, always interesting
Plenty of rain and those unmistakeable clear umbrellas
Pardon the food photo, but 1) it was an outstanding meal, and 2) it is a good example of what you can do with close focus and shallow depth of field.
