Overview: The Fujinon XF18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS is a standard
zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.8. It has a Fujifilm X-mount, and is designed
exclusively for Fujifilm X-mount cameras, such as the X-E1 and X-Pro1. Its 18-55mm focal
length is equivalent to 27-84mm in 35mm photography. The XF18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS
can be used for a variety of scenes.
Firmware Update Required: The X-E1 and X-Pro 1 cameras must go
through a firmware update before the lens can be used. The updated firmware for
both cameras is included with the lens on an SD memory card. The process takes
only about 90 seconds, and the camera's battery should be fully charged before
Optics: The XF18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS has 14 elements in 10 groups,
including 3 aspherical and 1 extra low dispersion elements. The lens has a 58mm
filter thread for adding screw-on filters.
Lens Hood: The XF18-55 F2.8-4 R LM OIS comes with a lens hood to reduce glare and to protect the front element. When attached, the
lens hood adds almost 1-7/16" to the overall length of the lens.
Aperture Control: Using the Aperture Mode switch on the barrel
of the lens, you can switch between auto and manual aperture control. When
switched to manual aperture control, you can rotate the aperture ring for
smaller or wider aperture openings.
Optical Image Stabilization (OIS): The lens has built-in
Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to allow you to shoot in challenging
situations without the worry of camera shake. The OIS, when activated, equates
to an exposure setting approximately four stops faster. The OIS can be turned on
or off via the switch on the barrel of the lens.
