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

The weather-resistant zoom lens Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR is a flagship "XF standard zoom lens" with a focal length 35mm-format equivalent of 24-84mm, and a constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the range. The advanced optical design controls various forms of aberration to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.

Flagship Standard Zoom Lens

Achieve the best-in-class image quality with this fast standard zoom lens that has a constant aperture of f/2.8 consisting of 17 elements in 12 groups. This includes three aspherical lens elements to control spherical aberration and distortion, and three ED glass lens elements to reduce lateral chromatic aberration (wide-angle) and axial chromatic aberration (telephoto), thereby achieving edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.

Nine rounded aperture blades create a smooth, circular bokeh. The suppression of spherical aberration to the ultimate extent contributes to producing beautiful bokeh at both the front and back.

Applying Fujifilm's unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to the entire area of the lens surface ensures ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear images. Also, using the newly developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology, which alters the refractive index between glass and air, ghosting and flare are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.

TIP! By combining this lens with an X Series camera body with Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) technology, the performance of the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.

  • Aperture range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three ED & three aspherical elements
  • Nano-GI & HT-EBC lens coatings
  • Twin linear AF motor

High-Speed, Quiet Autofocus 

By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Twin Linear Motor, high-speed, quiet AF is possible. The fastest AF speed of 0.06 sec brings comfort to your photo-shoot when combining this lens with an X Series camera body offering Phase Detection AF. Combined with the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet locations.

Weather Resistant to -10°C 

By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and avails -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the FUJIFILM X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.

The PERFECT "24-70" 2.8

Show Details

Let's not get into equivalence right now, but this lens does fill the 24-70 gap. It's remarkable in every way. A nice heavy piece of glass with a lovely wide f2.8 aperture, it's one if my two workhorse lenses. If I didn't love primes so much, I could easily get away with just using the XF 16-55 f2.8 all the time.

Aberration, vignetting and edge sharpness issues are not even worth considering. This lens is amazing. Partnered with the XF 50-140 f2.8, I can shoot pretty much any event with quite literally no lens correction needing to be applied in Lightroom in post.

Don't try it, unless you want your heart broken, because you WILL buy it. ;)
