The lens can be used for many subjects in various shooting scenes as it covers frequently used angles of view. These include wide angle, often used for shooting landscapes and architecture with an excellent sense of perspective (27mm*), a normal angle of view that naturally captures the image as is (35mm*, 40mm*, 50mm*), and telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography., which symbolically cuts out portraits and sports scenes (85mm*, 135mm*, 200mm*) with its 7.5x zoom.
In order to realize high descriptive performance with sharpness and rich contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). from wide angle to telephoto, high-performance glass materials including 4 aspherical glass lenses and 2 ED glass lenses are used. Multi-layer coating HT-EBC, which has high permeability (99.8%) and low reflectance (0.2%), is applied to the entire lens to effectively reduce lens flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. and ghosting, which often occur in backlight conditions. Utilizing the wide zoom range of the lens, there is more freedom in composition and selecting angles.

Fast autofocus (max. 0.10 sec.), silent operation
The Fujinon XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR utilizes an inner focus mechanism for rapid autofocusing speeds. This was enabled by making the focus lens lighter and installing a linear motor. By combining this lens with the X-series camera body which is compatible with phase detection AF, smooth photography is offered with faster AF.
Linear motor technology which directly drives the focus lens creates low noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. for silent operation when shooting movies.
World's most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization function
In order to realize the world's most advanced 5.0-stop image stabilization performance, performance to detect movement in the low-frequency band was improved, and an algorithm to accurately sense blur from the detected signal was developed. Correction performance improved by 2 times in the low-speed shutter range. This helps to support a lightly-equipped shooting style without the use of a tripod.
The newly adopted high-precision gyro sensor is installed with quartz oscillators which detect movement from high frequency to low frequency bandwidth.
Weather resistant structure
A weather resistant structure with applied sealing on 20 areas on the lens barrel is tough against various changes that occur in a natural environment, such as sudden rain, dust, and splashes of water.
Users can focus more on shooting by using the lens together with the premium mirrorless camera FUJIFILM X-T1, which has a weather resistant structure, as well as with the dedicated vertical grip "VG-XT1".
In order to improve the feel when adjusting zoom, a ventilator is placed in the interior of the bottom of the lens barrel. The structure effectively prevents dust particles and moisture from getting into the lens to allow for smooth operation.
Light-weight and compact design for excellent mobility
A wide shooting range, image stabilization function, and a weather resistant structure are realized in a size that weighs only 490g. When combined with the FUJIFILM X-T1, a light weight of just 930g will expand the area of activities of the photographer to help capture more photo opportunities.
4 "aspherical lenses" have been adopted, each of which deliver the performance of multiple general spherical lenses together, are used to realize extremely short optical length. With an easily maneuverable size and good holding balance with the total lens length, a comfortable shooting style is promised.
