Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR

Weather-resistant zoom lens for Fujifilm X-Mount cameras

Overview

Our take on the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR

From capturing razor-sharp closeups and wide-angle group shots, to recording expressive portraits in existing light, the versatile Fujifilm XF 16-55mm zoom lens can handle each situation with ease. And if that's all you ever needed it for, this outstanding lens with its light-gathering, constant f/2.8 maximum aperture, rugged metal construction, and exquisite finish and feel would be well worth the price. But Fujifilm gave this lens another skill set that really sets it apart — a weather-resistant, dust-resistant, and freeze-proof design. This makes it the perfect choice for outdoor winter and nature photography with one of Fujifilm's rugged X-T1 cameras.

Superior construction and optical quality

Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens elements and three aspherical glass element give you in-focus images with excellent edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range. Fujifilm's exclusive Nano-GI (Gradient Index) lens coating technology effectively reduces flare and ghosting for more vivid, life-like shots. And this lens's Twin Linear Motor design delivers lightning-fast, near-silent autofocus for better video footage and unobtrusive shooting in quiet locations.

Features

Overview: The Fujinon XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR is a standard zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-84mm. Its weather-resistant and dust-resistant finish lets you use the lens in extreme shooting conditions, including temperatures as low as 14°F. The lens comes with front and rear lens caps, lens hood, and a cloth storage pouch.

Optics: The XF16-55mm lens has 17 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical lens elements and three ED glass lens elements to reduce chromatic and axial chromatic aberrations give you edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range. The lens has a 77mm filter thread for adding screw-on filters. The HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) multi-layer coating reduces lens flare and ghosting, especially in backlight conditions. In addition, a newly-developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology alters the refractive index between glass and air to effectively reduce ghosting and flare from diagonal incident light.

Twin Linear Motor: For faster auto-focusing, the lens uses an inner focusing system and a Twin Linear Motor.

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 2" to the overall length of the lens. When not in use, the lens hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage.

Why did you buy this?

I plan to shoot indoor family shots for Christmas and this lens has the low light capabilities and flexibility to shoot small groups of people. The overall quality is very appealing as well.
