FUJIFILM XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Overview

An ideal all-around lens, the FUJIFILM XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is a versatile 27-206mm-equivalent zoom, covering wide-angle to medium telephoto fields of view.

Also benefitting use in a variety of situations, a linear motor delivers quick and quiet autofocus performance and a five stop-effective image stabilization system minimizes the appearance of camera shake. Additionally, the lens is fully weather-sealed for working in inclement conditions.

All-in-one zoom is designed for APS-C-format Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and offers a 27-206mm equivalent focal length range.
Two extra-low dispersion elements are used to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce high clarity and color fidelity throughout the zoom range.
Four aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations, which helps to improve sharpness and realize more accurate rendering.
An HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) coating has been applied to the entire surface of each element to for controlling ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color accuracy.
A linear motor autofocus system, coupled with an internal focusing design, delivers smooth, near-silent performance that is especially beneficial to video applications and when working in noise-sensitive areas.
Complemented by an enhanced gyro sensor and unique series of algorithms, the optical stabilization system minimizes the appearance of camera shake by up to five stops to enable sharper imaging when working with longer focal lengths or slower shutter speeds.
The lens body incorporates 20 distinct weather seals to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Review of Fujinon 18-135 lens for nature photography

By Stephen
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-09

I got the 18-135 for my Fuji xt3 so I could get better images of Florida freshwater environments than I could with my Olympus TG5. I'm very pleased with the 18-135. The lens makes it easy to capture interesting scenes. If I manage to get closer, I can even get nice wildlife images. The lens pairs well with the 100-400 which I use mostly for birds, alligators, turtles, and river otters. The lens replaced my Fuji 50-140. The 18-135 does not have the acuity or wider aperture of that lens, but the output is surprisingly good, and it is a wider, lighter solution for my needs.

Impressive usability and image quality

By Serge

I own almost every Fuji lens for the X-mount system and this is one I was determined never to purchase, considering that I almost never use my 18-55 zoom and consider the 16-55 as a benchmark. I finally decided to get this superzoom as a backup (a kind of security blanket when I intend to go out with a single prime lens but want a do-it-all secondary lens just in case). Well, I'm really impressed with the image quality all across the focal range with this zoom. I would not hesitate to use this lens even as a primary lens when I am uncertain about what focal length I was to use on a given outing. Perhaps I wouldn't be as happy if I was into pixel peeping, but that's just not what I do. The main limitation is that it's difficult to get a shallow depth of field, but that is unavoidable with a superzoom, especially one this light and compact. My only complaint is that the zoom ring gets tight at long focal lengths, which is not confidence inspiring. In this sense, the build quality is perhaps somewhat questionable. But it doesn't detract from image quality, at leas on my copy. In short, this lens should serve its backup purpose well and, thus, allow me to use prime lenses and carry only few of them at any time. Highly recommended.

Travel lens

I purchased this lens specifically as an all in one travel lens for when I want to travel with a single camera and lens. On my X-T4 I have a light and compact system that will be easy to carry when hiking. While it is not as fast as other Fuji lenses and does tend to struggle in low light, overall I have been pleased with the results in good light.

As you have likely read in other reviews by now, the XF 18-135 is an extremely versatile lens and one that I take along on all my vacations, and even business trips where I know I'm going to have some time for photography. For what it is, it's lightweight and compact, and fits nicely inside my travel/work backpack. Because of the focal range that it covers, it makes packing other, more narrow ranges unnecessary. If I have a bit more room, I may also pack my Fuji X-70 or Fuji X100F for subtle street and evening photography. Or you can pack a 23mm prime and you'll be a ready for anything.

Fantastic lens

Pretty much the only lens you need day or low light! Great stabilization, hands free at 1/15 of a sec. Priceless lens

A versatile value

Very versatile and will make a nice image. With versatility often comes compromise and I feel this lens is no exception. Images could be a little sharper but at this price and covering this range it does it's job very well. It is an acceptable grab one lens and go option for most situations. I've used it mostly on an X-T3.

This is a great walking around lens and great for travel. I'm not a professional - but love taking pics and I'm happy with this purchase.

Excellent balance between versatility, weight, image quality

Although this lens does not provide as sharp images as some of my other Fuji lenses and does not have as wide an aperture for lighting and subject isolation, it provides great versatility in focal length and the lens size/weight. Overall a good lens when you prefer to only bring one and expect to need a wide range of focal lengths.
