The Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f4 R OIS WR Lens is the latest addition to the X Series. This compact 5x zoom lens covers a range of focal lengths from wide angle to mid-telephoto with a constant F4 aperture. With OIS 6.0 stops Fujifilm XF offers the highest amount of optical stabilisation in any interchangeable lens allowing the users to comfortably shoot in a wide variety of situations from a night scene to outdoors.
It has a minimum shooting distance of 35 cm over the entire zoom range giving the Fujifilm XF a maximum shooting magnification of 0.25x. Weighing only 440g this lens is approximately 40% lighter than an equivalent lens for a 35mm format system. The XF 16-80mm f4 OIS WR consists of 16 lens elements including three aspherical lens elements, and one ED aspherical lens. This effectively helps to control the field curvature and spherical abbreviations giving advanced levels of sharpness across the frame.
Advanced Image Quality
The Fujifilm XF Lens consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical lens elements and one ED aspherical lens. In order to reduce field curvature and spherical aberration the aspherical lens elements are controlled at high precision. This results in an advanced level of image sharpness across the frame. Aberration fluctuation is suppressed thanks to image stabilisation provided by utilising an ED aspherical lens as an OIS lens. The Fujifilm XF lens also has a minimum focusing distance of 35 cm close-up over the entire zoom range.
Compact, lightweight and stylish design for superior operability
The compact 5x zoom lens weights just 440g and is 88.9 mm in full length. It is approximately 40% lighter than full size 5x zoom lens. Additional quality and durability is achieved thanks to the metal aspects of the exterior. The zoom, aperture and focus rings have just the right amount of torque for better handling.
The Fujifilm XF Lens has the strongest OIS performance equivalent to 6.0 CIPS-guideline standards. The camera automatically detects when it is fixed to a tripod or when panning, and adjusts itself accordingly.
Fast and Silent autofocus
The internal focus AF system drives smaller and lighter focusing elements. Fast and silent autofocus is achieved thanks to the stepping motor known for its quiet operation and accuracy.
The Fujifilm XF lens is dust and weather resistant as well as being capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10C thanks to the lens barrel being sealed at 10 different locations. The users can mount the lens on weather sealed mirrorless digital cameras such as X-Pro2, X-t1, X-T2, X-T3 and X-H11 allowing them to shoot in light rain or a dusty outdoor environment without worry.
