FUJIFILM XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Overview

A telephoto zoom designed for use in trying conditions, the FUJIFILM XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR is a weather-sealed lens spanning the popular 76-213mm equivalent focal length range and featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. Built for FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless digital cameras, this fast zoom further distinguishes itself with a sophisticated design, highly effective optical image stabilization system, and a Triple Linear Motor AF system for refined focusing performance.

In regards to the optical design, this lens incorporates five extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element, which reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing for increased clarity and color accuracy. Additionally, a Nano-GI coating has also been applied to elements to alter the refractive index between elements, to minimize surface reflections, and to prevent lens flare and ghosting. Additionally a rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality when working with selective focus techniques.

Flexible telephoto zoom is designed for APS-C-format Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and offers a 76-213mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and excels when working in difficult lighting conditions.
Five extra-low dispersion elements and one Super ED element are used to greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce high clarity and color fidelity throughout the zoom range.
Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating has been applied to lens elements and alters the refractive index between the glass and air in order to better suppress lens flare and ghosting for diagonal incident light.
An HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) coating has been applied to the entire surface of each element for controlling ghosting and flare for greater contrast and color accuracy.
A Triple Linear Motor autofocus system 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 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 contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
A tripod collar is included for well-balanced mounting and shooting when working from a tripod or monopod.
Compatible with optional XF 1.4x TC WR and XF 2x TC WR teleconverters.

FUJIFILM XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Reviews

Stunning images, internal zoom mechanics

By Craig

A perfect lens for its focal length. The one knock is that the lens hood is UNBELIEVABLY cheap at awful. Barely attaches to the lens with a simple UV light filter. I would pay extra for an aftermarket metal lens hood if one existed.

Great lens!

This lens fully lives up to its reputation for great build quality, feel and sharp images. In my much earlier film shooting days, with Nikon cameras, one of my favorite lenses was the Nikkor 80 - 200 2.8, which was a very big and heavy lens but produced great images. In the APS format this Fuji lens is the approximate equivalent of that lens but is much more compact and lighter which I appreciate.

Outstanding Sharpness - Optical Perfection

This lens is amazing. I own the Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, and this is just as good, cheaper, lighter and with an outstandingly useful tripod foot/collar. I have all the fast fuji glass (90/f2; 60/f2.4; 56/f1.4; 35/f1.4; 23/f1.4; 16/f1.4 and 18/f1.4), so I know what the best images from Fuji kit look like. This is on a par with the best of them (it shouldn't be given that its a zoom). It's a useful portrait and landscape lens. With my Canon 500D close up lens/dioptre, it's a great macro lens and what I really like about it is the clarity without the need for fill flash. This is the equivalent of the Canon, but so much easier and lighter to use - overall greater utility compared to the Canon. Professionally, I've shot weddings with the Canon lens, and halfway through, the weight really cripples your arm. The Fuji 50-140 feels like a featherweight by comparison and gives images that are just as pleasing. The smaller XT series cameras are the perfect match, and really help keep the weight down. On it's own, close focus is nothing special, but sharpness, speed, stabilisation, Weather resistance are stunning characteristics that make this special. Ignore what people say about this being heavy. It is not at all heavy compared to the competition, and balances well on XT bodies. You don't need a grip either as the tripod foot makes holding it very manageable. Build quality is outstanding. I can imagine it will really take what nature and my clumsiness throw at it. B&H service was amazing as always - I had it within a week, and I live in Adelaide, Australia, so full marks for service. Bottom line - buy this lens, you won't regret it. I have just bought the Fuji X-T5, so stabilisation on that body will be amazing, but the lens is also capable of stellar images on older bodies such as the X-T2 and X-T3, which are still competitive devices a hairs breadth beneath the current state-of-the -art.

I have avoided zooms like the plague and ONLY carried primes. This is the first zoom that I have used that doesn't ask me to sacrifice something... speed, IQ, internal zoom etc. Amazing.

Beautifully made. Beautiful images.

First class lens that is capable of making beautifully sharp, contrasty images with great color rendition. Buy it.

Excellent Fuji Glass

Today was my first outing with the new lens, it was cold and raining and it preformed great. It's built very well with the exception of the plastic lens hood. Initially was not planning on getting this lens but having the 70-300 on indefinite back order I needed this focal length range for my spring workshops.

Essential legendary equipment

This lens is one of my favorites because it just gets the shot whether the action is fast or slow. Being a bigger and heavier lens, however, I recommend using it with a battery grip (that greatly improved comfort using it on my XT3). Optically this lens is razor sharp edge to edge with colors that pop and excellent subject separation throughout the range. It definitely has a sort of look to it that is hard to put my finger on, but I like it a lot. I find image quality peaks at about f/3.6-f/16 or so. Wide open at f/2.8 it is just a touch (and I do mean touch) softer with perhaps a little less contrast. Bokeh is excellent, but I have seen better sunstars. When this thing flares it flares in a pretty epic way. But in my case I've found it pleasing and tried to incorporate it into compositions. MFD is a lengthy three feet or so, typical for lenses like this and something I'd always prefer to be shorter. Hence it is a tad more constraining to use the lens indoors, though I do so a lot. Magnification is low, but this lens still pulls it off well when you zoom in all the way and add a crop - its that sharp. AF is excellent - other than the soft whir of the motors, or thunk when you switch it off, it is smoking fast. Even in poor light, I find this lens to be quick and virtually hunt proof - it just works. If only they were all like this. OIS is excellent - I've nailed focus at 1/15th all the way out to 140mm. OIS generally doesn't interfere with my action shots, but from time to time I do shut it off just to eliminate that possibility. It would be nice if it had a panning setting. Handling and feel of the lens is great - the aperture ring has strong, positive clicks, and the zoom ring is comfortable and fast. The manual focus ring is, IMO, too slow - even when I really rip on it, it seems to take its sweet time (probably to aid precision, however). I love the metal build, but can note that it can get ripping hot in the summer, and freezing cold in the winter. Hence the broad rubber zoom ring is pretty important here. Tripod collar is easy to drop into portrait mode, and makes a useful hand grip. But it is a tad annoying to take on/off as it is a tight space - not to mention you better insure they aren't loose each time to use the lens. Lens hood on mine is wiggly, and never seated itself as easily as it should have - I eventually cross threaded mine in the moment, probably ruining it though it still works. It's a poor fit, in other words, not becoming of a $1,600 lens. Other than that the 75-214mm-ish range of this lens combined with its fantastic image quality and overall performance makes it a very rewarding to use despite its size, weight, or cost. On more than one occasion this has been my one lens choice for landscape, portrait, and action. Its high versatility and performance makes it in many ways a far better value than some other Fuji lenses (cough, prime lenses, cough).

A Great Lens

I have just got my new fuji 50-140mm f2.8 lens. It's a great lens. Very sharp, a fast aperture, and a very useful focal length. This lens fits nisely between my walk about 16-80mm and my supertelephoto 150-600.

Does anyone know which way the focus works on the XF lenses? Does it pull closer to the right like canon lenses or is it the opposite like Nikon, and some Sony lenses?
Asked by: Patrick
You rotate the lens' focusing ring to the left to reduce the focus distance, and rotate the focusing ring to the right to increase the focus distance out to infinity. However, you may go into the menu and go to BUTTON/DIAL SETTING > FOCUS RING to reverse the direction of rotation of the focus ring.
