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.

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

Versatility over constant lens swapping.

By Aurora

First off I'm going to say that as an XF WR lens you are getting very high quality no matter what. This lens does have some downsides, I do notice some vignetting around the edges especially at maximum zoom and there are some minor sharpness issues throughout. That's not the reason you should buy this lens. if you want sharp as attack zoom you've gotta go for fuji's telephoto f/2.8. Hands down the best. If you want a zoom for professional use, the 16-55 f/2.8 has you covered. This is the lens that I slap on my camera when I am just going out somewhere and I am taking photos for me or if I'm doing a minor event shoot where the photos are going on a website, in the paper, or social media and I need maximum versatility. I far prefer some of the majestic shots that come out of my primes but at the end of the day I prefer practicality if it's not a professional shoot. It's a 27 to 206mm FF equivalent lens with great build quality and weather resistance. For the price you're not going to find a more versatile lens out there.

Review of Fujinon 18-135 lens for nature photography

By Stephen

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.

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.

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.

I use this lens as my default as I like to talk up close and landscape pictures for fun. As I am not a professional can not give you that level of review. I can say it does have some challenges at maximum zoom.
