Features

Overview: The Fujinon XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a wide-range zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-206mm. It can be used for shooting wide angled landscapes and architecture, as well as portraits and sports scenes with its 7.5x zoom. It features a Fujifilm X-mount, and is designed exclusively for Fujifilm X-mount cameras, such as the X-E1, X-Pro1, and the X-T1. The lens includes front and rear lens caps, a lens hood, and a soft cloth pouch.

Optics: The XF18-135mm has 16 elements in 12 groups, including 4 aspherical and 2 anomalous dispersion lens elements. The lens has a 67mm filter thread for adding screw-on filters. The HT-EBC multi-layer coating reduces lens flare and ghosting, especially in backlight conditions.

Lens Hood: The lens comes with a bayonet-style lens hood to reduce glare and to protect the front element. When attached, the lens hood adds approximately 1.5" to the overall length of the lens. When not in use, the lens hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage.

Auto/Manual Focus: The lens uses an inner focus mechanism to achieve blazing fast auto focus (0.1 second). Inner focusing involves the movement of smaller lenses in the middle or at the end of the lens rather than the larger lenses at the front. The internal linear motor is virtually silent when driving the focus lens, which is extremely valuable when shooting movies.

Image Stabilization: The built-in Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system uses two high-precision gyro sensors with quartz oscillators to detect movement. A new, improved algorithm applies the proper correction, resulting in a 5-stop image stabilization performance. You can turn off the OIS using a switch on the lens for those occasions when you are using a tripod.

Auto Aperture: A 2-way switch on the lens barrel lets you turn the Auto Aperture feature on/off. When mounted on a Fujifilm X-series interchangeable lens camera, the Auto Aperture switch setting helps determine the Shooting Mode. When the Auto Aperture is On, the shooting mode on the camera can be set to Program AE or Shutter Priority, with the aperture setting automatically determined. If the Auto Aperture is Off, the aperture is set manually by turning the aperture ring on the lens. The available shooting modes on the camera are Aperture Priority and Manual.

Weather Resistant: The XF18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is sealed in over 20 areas of the lens barrel to protect the elements from moisture, dust, and humidity. A ventilator in the bottom of the lens barrel helps to provide a better feel when adjusting the zoom, while keeping dust and moisture out of the lens.
