Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens

You Pay: $599.00
Product Highlights
  • Fujifilm X-mount Lens
  • Fast Maximum Aperture of f/2.8
  • 27-84mm (35mm Equivalency)
  • Optical Image Stabilization
  • Smooth Linear Motor-Driven Autofocus
  • Three Aspherical Elements

The XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens from Fujifilm is the first zoom lens for the X mount on their X-series interchangeable lens digital cameras, and is sure to find a home in the kit bags of many shooters who are already attached to this APS-C sized camera system. A versatile, compact lens that can travel easily and respond to a range of shooting situations, the XF 18-55mm has the focal length equivalency of 27-84mm in the 35mm format. This covers a standard zoom range from basic wide-angle to medium telephoto and is ideal for day-to-day shooting needs from group shots to portraiture, cityscapes to natural vistas. It's a great lens for street photography as well.

The f/2.8-4 aperture means the lens will stay fast at most focal lengths and in most shooting situations and its 3 aspherical lens elements and 1 abnormal dispersion element prevent aberration to give you crisp details and accurate colors throughout the image frame. A fast, linear motor-driven autofocus system will get you to your focus smoothly and quickly and keep you shooting confidently. An optical image stabilization system helps to keep your images sharp by compensating for any camera shake, especially in low light and its focus range starts at 11.8" (30 cm) in wide-angle and at 17.7" (45 cm) at the telephoto length. With the popularity of the X-series cameras growing and the lens line expanding, it's great that Fujifilm has introduced this compact, versatile zoom lens.

      I have been using this lens with the X-E1 (purchased as the kit) for the last month and have taken several hundred shots. All together I feel confident in saying this is a fantastic zoom, with a very useful range (27-82.5mm in 35mm equivalent).

      The lens is quite bright for a "kit" lens (though it isn't really a kit lens, not in the traditional sense - the image quality is much higher than that), and I've found that even wide open the lens produces very high quality images - sharp, contrasty, and full of that Fuji color and rendering that I love so much (and which compelled me to get the X-E1 in the first place). The Optical Image Stablization (OIS) on the lens works very well - although I need to note that I can hear the OIS working, at least when the X-E1 is set to have OIS on continuously (rather than just when shooting). The noise is minor, but there, and in a perfectly silent environment could be noticeable. But you can disable it with a switch on the lens itself.

      Compared directly with the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 (which I also bought): The 18-55mm is longer and heavier, and does extend when zooming (though not when focusing). The 35mm f/1.4 is sharper from f/2.8 and up, and capable of thinner depth of focus (thanks to the faster aperture), so you can throw more of the background out of focus. But on looking over many shots from a recent trip, I can't easily pick out which I took with the 18-55mm and which I took with the 35mm (except when it was very dark out, at which point I switched to the faster 35mm, despite the lack of OIS). I think this speaks to the quality of the 18-55mm - the image quality it produces is comparable to a very well regarded prime. At 18mm it is especially good; it is only at the max 55mm length that you probably will want to stop down to achieve max sharpness.

      All I all I highly recommend this zoom if you are in the market for a versatile lens to add to your X-mount collection. As part of the X-E1 kit this is a no-brainer - get it. On it's own, for the X-Pro 1 or if you got the X-E1 body-only, I still see this as a flexible lens for all those times when you don't have the time or ability to switch out your primes - or if you just want to buy one lens that does most everything in the standard range. Match this with the 35mm f/1.4 and you have a heck of a set.

      My 1 month old 18-55 just came back from Fuji to fix an issue with zoom creep where the barrel would come out as soon as you'd shake the camera while moving. Turns out that the lens is now in an even worse condition in a sense that the barrel literally falls out as soon as you turn the camera downwards. Conclusion: Do not buy this lens unless you can test your copy in person or at least make sure you can return it.
      And did i mention the dust in the rear glass?

        Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

        I originally planned to just buy a couple primes instead of zoom lenses for my Fuji X-T1. But after reading reviews, it seemed that this lens, which came as a kit for a good price, was the way to go. I'm not disappointed, and fully recommend it. I'll probably buy the 56mm 1.2 prime down the road, but in the meantime this is my go-to lens, particularly for hiking.

            I bought this lens with the X-T1 with a little hesitancy as some people were saying this lens is over rated...well either they do not know what they are talking about or they got a bad copy . This lens delivers the goods . Sometimes I may need a little faster lens in low light situations and the 56 1.2 will do in those situations...but this little zoom stays on my camera ...and it focuses very quickly and it tracks accurately as well. Wonderful lens...if you only want one lens...this is it.

              Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

              I photograph the things in my life - my dogs, my garden, my friends and the rural countryside where I live. I have owned Nikons since the late 70's, and belonged to camera clubs, and even exhibited my work in shows. I have 3 Nikon DSLR's and many lenses, but they are heavy, and I am not getting any younger, so I bought The Fujifilm XT-1 with the 18-55f/2.8-4. I was seriously blown away by this lens! Faster than any other zoom I have had, as sharp as any prime lens I own, and on this body, the most spontaneous combo imaginable. Small, light, beautiful color rendition, beautiful bokeh wide open at 2.8, a macro perfect for the garden flowers and bugs, frogs and other small and beautiful critters. It could only be improved by a bit more range on both ends, but that would involve some compromises on size, weight, and aperture - compromizes I don't think I would be willing to make.

                Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

                I got this lens with a Fujifilm X-T1 body. I love the overall construction of the lens; it's solidly built. I also liked the aperture range, which is about a stop faster than most kit lenses. Just for fun, I compared this lens against my 24-70mm Nikkor. My first tests were disappointing; fine details were slightly mushy. However, I then disabled OIS, and got blown away. This lens rivals the 24-70mm for sharpness on a 16MP body. OIS is very good at low shutter speeds (think 1/100s or slower), but at least for me I see OIS degrading image quality when shutter speeds are faster than 1/125s.

                I understand why this lens has no aperture ring markings (variable aperture), but it would be nice to have some kind of reference marks. This lens is a tremendous performer for me so far.

                  I use this lens for most of my photography, I also have the 18, 35 and 60mm lenses. I use those lens when I want faster speed or the best resolution I can get but the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom is sharper than I thought it would be. Solid build, smooth action, small and light weight. This lens is as good as my Canon zoom lenses. Wish it had f. stops on the lens like the others but I do understand being a non fixed aperture lens prevents this feature.

                    This lens is used on an X-pro 1 body as the single, carry along lens for photojournalism, technical, and scenic photography. It works seamlessly with the camera and has good definition and is well made. Using the manual f-stop and focus requires more turns, and thus more effort, than a lens for a Leica rangefinder.

                    Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

                    I bought into the Fuji system because of this lens. I looked at Oly and didn't like their 16-50 lens too much as the manual zoom was 'chunky' since it was really built for video. With the Sony there was soooo much distortion. This lens is very sharp across the frame and the distortion is well controlled. For a walk-about kit with the X-E1, where you want to keep weight/size under control and are focused on stills & not video, this is truly excellent IMO.

                    My only quibbles with this lens are in the specifications: I wish it went to 16mm on the wide end. Although it would be nice to go longer too, I don't think I would want the trade-offs in performance/size, but just a little wider would make this lens almost perfect.

                    I shot nearly 2k pictures on vacation with this over 3 weeks and the pictures are everything I hoped for. Great sharpness & low distortion, plus quality construction is a big plus too.

                    Shot this in light rain with no ill effects.

                      Haven't had this lens long but like it already.

                      Pros
                      Solid Build
                      Nice Focal Range
                      Though no constant aperture, f4 at long end of zoom is nice
                      Not heavy or bulky
                      Reasonable Price

                      Just a great all purpose lens!

                        This lens makes the X-pro-1 a more useful camera where "zooming with your feet" isn't possible. It is as free of color fringing as any lens I've owned (including "L" series and other premium products). Sharpness is fine and color is peasant.

                          Good sharp lens, max aperture beats most kit zooms, OIS works fine. Not as good as the fuji primes, and it is just about as big as an SLR lens, so no real size improvement for going mirrorless. AF adequate, certainly not excellent, but that is the deal with the fuji x camera's, at least for now. Useful lens though, good walk around with little compromise in IQ

                            Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

                            I debated back and forth over the lens or lenses I would want to round out my X-Pro1 kit. This kit is more for travel and would augment my X100 which i have grown to love.
                            The 35/1.4 is an assumed requirement based on readings and reviews. And thats a direction I was considering but the 18-55mm zoom came out months before my camera body purchase so I went for it instead.
                            I cannot say I will never need the 18/2.0 or the 35/1.4 or the new Zeiss lenses in the same range, and primes are probably going to beat the zoom if you look hard but I can say this Fuji zoom is very very sharp. It offers great color and contrast too. Its relatively compact too, especially when compared to a full frame DSLR zoom in this range. The controls are easy to work, which really are just a few switches, a focus ring and aperture ring. Build and finish are top notch. I wish my Nikon stuff looked as good.
                            All in all a great lens that is for now handling my needs. I've pre-ordered the 55-200 based on seeing and using this one - thats a good sign of how impressed I am with it.

                              Along with Fujinon's equally outstanding 35mm f/1.4 R lens for X-series cameras, I purchased this great 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS zoom lens, in a two lens package from B&H, for my new FujiFilm X-Pro1 camera. It is probably the one lens that will see the most use, due to its versatile zoom range and high quality contrast, color and sharpness.

                              I won't repeat all of the praise you can read below for this lens; it's all true. The most remarkable things about this lens are:- It is virtually as good as the 35mm prime - which is amazing given how good the 35mm is- The build quality puts the quality of the kit lenses, and their 2nd tier lenses, from the big guys to shame. These are metal, engraved, coated, etc. They feel like little rocks in your hand. I tell people they are Leica equivalents.- I love my XF primes (which I bought first) so much that I was worried that I wouldn't use a zoom. I bought it on a whim to take as my 'one lens' for a trip, and figured I would return it if I was disappointed. Two things: (1) no way is this going back; it's super versatile when I just want to shoot (versus change lenses a lot to get the perfect shot) and it's a lot handier than I thought it would be (2) I still brought the 35mm prime. :-) I couldn't bear the thought of not having it for that perfect shot!In closing, I'll say that I find it hard to read the reviews below that aren't 5 star. I've bought a lot of lenses, and this degree of perfection, at this quality, at this price, isn't anywhere else. If you don't like it, learn to shoot. Or, buy 10 lenses from the big boys to see what you have to spend to get something close. You'll be back.Don't hesitate. Just buy it.

                              I purchased my X Pro-1 over a year ago with the 18 and 35 primes. I recently bought this zoom, and am very happy I did. The lens is well constructed but not very heavy. The images are spectacular, and I would have difficulty distinguishing the images made with the primes from those made with this zoom. I don't think my primes are going to get much use since purchasing this zoom!

                                I bought this zoom when I bought my X-Pro1, I bought it because I could only afford 1 lens and the 35mm was not on sale at the time so I bought the zoom "kit" and saved $300. I'm just starting to learn how to use it, no complaints at all so far.

                                    I now leave this lens on the camera at all times, to be replaced by my 18mm or 35mm if I have special needs. If it had been available when I first purchased the camera as it became available in the US in April 2012, I don't think I would have another lens, and would be perfectly satisfied.

                                        Comments about Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom Lens:

                                        This is a 5-Star zoom, no question about it. It is NOT a "kit" zoom even though it can be purchased as such. The build quality is a pleasant surprise, and is very solid an precise. It is made mostly of metal, zooms super smoothly, and is perfectly balanced. It also focuses very quickly and silently. Currently this is the only zoom available for the Fuji X-Series, and it covers the most common shooting field. I have shot with or owned just about every pro Canon or Nikon zoom, and I recommend this lens without hesitation.
