The Fujifilm XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR Lens is a flagship "XF standard zoom lens" with a focal length equivalent of 24mm to 84mm (35mm format equivalent), and a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the range. The advanced optical design controls various forms of aberration to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.
High optical performance
The XF 16-55mm consists of 17 elements in 12 groups, including 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). This allows the lens to achieve 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 produce 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. 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.
High-speed, quiet auto focus
By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Twin Linear Motor, high-speed, quiet AF is possible. Combine this lens with an X Series camera body that features Phase Detection AF and the fastest AF speed of 0.06 seconds is available, making your photo shoots smoother and more efficient. With the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken discreetly in quiet locations.
By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the FUJIFILM X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.
