The Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is a fast ultra-wide-angle zoom lens that has a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 and is equivalent to 12-24mm in the 35mm format. It complements the other constant f/2.8 zoom lenses (XF16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR and XF50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR) to create a premium trio of lenses that cover the focal lengths equivalent from 12mm all the way to 213mm in the 35mm format. The lens’ outstanding edge-to-edge image-resolving performance and f/2.8 maximum aperture make this product a perfect choice for landscape and architecture photography with an emphasized sense of perspective, interior photography at restaurants and hotels, as well as nightscape and astrophotography.

Ultra-wide angle zoom with a constant maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. of f/2.8

In order to provide an ultra-wide angle zoom of 8-16mm (equivalent to 12-24mm in 35mm format) at a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8, this lens uses an impressive 20 elements in 13 groups. This includes four aspherical lens elements to control distortion and spherical aberration, and six ED lens elements including three super ED elements to control lateral chromatic aberration. This design results in advanced image-resolving performance across the zoom range while maintaining a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8.


Field curvature correction mechanism

In order to correct field curvature, typically found with ultra-wide angle lenses, this lens features a correction element which adjusts according to the position of the zoom in order to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness.


Double Nano-GI Coating

The rear surface of the two front lens elements is treated with Nano-GI coating to eliminate ghosting and 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. , caused by oblique light, creating clear images.


Silent and fast autofocus

The lens uses linear motors for autofocus to achieve quiet and ultra-fast AF.


Advanced construction that withstands various shooting conditions

The barrel is sealed at 11 places to make the lens resistant to dust, moisture, and low temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. The front lens element is coated with fluorine to repel water and dirt, adding extra durability so that the lens can be used outdoors with peace of mind.
