There’s almost always a compromise between the convenience of a zooms adaptable focal lengths and the image quality it can deliver, but FUJINON XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is a different breed of lens. This lens is built to offer the versatility of a zoom lens with the ultimate image quality of a prime and is a fast, standard zoom providing a constant F2.8 aperture throughout. This makes it incredibly useful across a broad range of subjects, even in challenging lighting conditions.

The zoom uses leading-edge optical technology and lens coatings that draw on Fujifilm’s esteemed heritage in optical design. It has a construction of 17 elements in 12 groups, which includes three aspherical elements to reduce distortions and spherical aberrations, while three extra-low dispersion elements are also used to control chromatic aberrations and increase clarity.

Fujifilm's proprietary High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) is used to eliminate reflections and Nano GI coating is applied to control ghosting and flare caused by light bouncing around inside the lens. In doing so, this cutting-edge technology improves the quality of light hitting the sensor, which increases overall image quality. The XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR also uses a rounded, nine-bladed aperture design to provide smooth and circular bokeh for outstanding subject separation.

A standard zoom like the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is anything but standard in terms of the subjects it lets you cover without changing lenses. From wide angle to short telephoto, this is a small lens with huge scope. At 16mm, you can record every detail in big landscape scenes, towering architecture, or cramped interiors. Zoom in to 24mm or 35mm and you've got a perfect lens for groups, street, or documentary photos. And up around 50mm, youre perfectly placed for portraits and close-ups. Of course, theres every focal length between those settings to make use of, too.

All of the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WRs versatility and image quality would be for nothing without great AF performance to back it up. This lens uses a high-speed linear motor that can focus as fast as 0.02 seconds,*1 so it’ll react to the moment just as fast as you do. Combine the fast AF with Fujifilm’s Face/Eye Detection AF technology for perfect portraits, or use it in Zone or Tracking mode on action subjects.

READY FOR ALL ENVIRONMENTS - Any professional walk around lens needs to be ready to go in all shooting conditions, especially adverse weather. The dust- and moisture-resistant construction of the lens allows you to immerse yourself in shooting, whatever the weather.
