Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f2.8 R WR Lens Summary

The Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR zoom lens comes with a constant fast f/2.8 aperture throughout its zoom range. It has stood the test of time as a relatively early model from the X-mount lens range from Fujifilm, impressing users across a host of different styles which this lens is suitable for.

The full frame equivalent focal range is 24-84mm, making for a longer than 24-70mm equivalent, a real workhorse which is used for landscape, portraits, weddings, travel and just about any creativity you can think of. It delivers sharp images which are sure to please on any of Fujifilm’s high resolution cameras.

Key Features

  • 35mm equivalent: - 24-84mm
  • Continuous F2.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range
  • Part of Fujifilm's new weather-resistant range
  • Optically designed to draw out the maximum image quality as a flagship standard zoom lens

In order to achieve the best-in-class image quality, the fast standard zoom lens with a constant aperture of F2.8 consists 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.

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 coating technology, which alters the refractive index between glass and air, ghosting and flare are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.

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.

By combining this lens with an X Series camera body** with Lens Modulation Optimiser*** (LMO) technology, the performance from the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction*4 to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.

High-speed, quiet auto focus thanks to the Linear Motor

An Inner Focusing System*5 is used for high-speed AF. 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 seconds brings comfort to your photo-shoot when by 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.

  • As AF operates using a signal from the imaging sensor, extremely high-precision focusing is possible.
  • Weather resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation
  • With weather-sealing at 14 locations, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.
  • High build quality and comfortable operation

Both the focus and aperture rings are metal, plus metal is also used on the exterior of the lens body for a high-quality finish. Thanks to long-term experience and broaden knowhow for other top-end professional lens fields such as Broadcasting and Cinema Scope, the texture and torque on the rings makes for comfortable shooting even for delicate manual focusing. The lens mount is made from brass for improved strength.

Combined with a camera body, the lens is approximately 60% of the weight of a full-size system*6, considerably reducing the burden on the photographer for astonishing ease of use.

The AF+MF function enables seamless manual focusing. After pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustments can then be made using the manual focus ring

Our Verdict

There is no shortage of excellent glass for Fujifilm’s X-System. This lens was originally released in 2015 and still impresses users today. That’s down to its ability to capture extremely sharp and detailed images throughout the zoom range and across the full frame. The focal range is very practical for any number of subjects with anything from architecture, landscape, travel and portraits falling within its’ remit.

At 655g the size and weight are hefty enough to feel very solid in the hand but ergonomics remain excellent and it feels comfortable when hand holding for extended periods with a camera like the X-T4 or even the compact X-E4. You’ll be able to capture sharp images when hand holding thanks to the bright aperture which is constant at every length. With metal focus and aperture rings, a metal body and comprehensive weather resistance this lens will continue to be a huge success for years to come.
