FUJIFILM 16-55mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A flexible workhorse of a lens, the XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR from FUJIFILM is a versatile standard zoom spanning a 24-84mm equivalent, wide-angle to portrait-length range. Characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, this lens is adept in difficult lighting conditions and also offers notable control over depth of field. Its optical design comprises both aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements, which help to reduce distortion and color fringing for improved sharpness and color accuracy throughout the zoom range. Nano-GI and HT-EBC coatings have also been applied to elements to minimize surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting.

Complementing the optical attributes is a Twin Linear Motor autofocus system, which offers impressively quick, quiet, and precise focusing that benefits both stills and video applications. Additionally, the lens has a fully weather-sealed design to support its use in trying environmental conditions.

Standard zoom is designed for APS-C-format Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and offers a 24-84mm 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.
Three 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.
Three aspherical elements control distortion and spherical aberrations, which helps to improve sharpness and realize more accurate rendering.
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 Twin Linear Motor autofocus system delivers smooth, near-silent performance that is especially beneficial to video applications and when working in noise-sensitive areas.
The lens body incorporates extensive weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

    FUJIFILM 16-55mm f/2.8 reviews

    XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent general-purpose Fuji zoom I have the Fuji XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 ('kit lens') but was tantalized by the 16-55mm f/2.8 lens' constant f/2.8 aperture (even at tele- end, for better portraits, & low light), weather-resistant build (like Fuji camera bodies), wider wide-angle range (35mm-eq of 24mm rather than 27mm, a small difference that is sometimes helpful), & 77mm filter size (convenient since I have a stash). Downsides: no image stabilization (hence 4 stars; but not essential) & heavier/bulkier lens (not terrible). The advantages, plus probably better image quality (still discovering after only a week), are already appreciated!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely capable and flexible lens Love it. Despite the large size and high price tag, this lens could easily be the only one you'd need on a trip. I don't feel that the 16-55 replaces any primes that fall within the zoom focal length. They all serve a different purpose, particularly if you want to keep weight/size down. I think the 16-55 makes a good complimentary lens for owners of a 23, 35, or 50 primes. You can get the flexibility of a handy zoom range with the downside of weight, size, and cost or keep everything small by using a 23 or 35. Image quality is great. Very sharp at all apertures. I'm happy with this lens. With all that being said, it is large and pricey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from exceed expectations the 16-55 feels 100% pro; a very smooth and precise zoom and manual focus ring mounted. The friction in the aperture ring, which is labeled f2.8 to f22 and can be set at 1/3 stops, is just right. The lens focuses quickly and quietly, it's very well-built, tough where it needs to be, while the various rings turn smoothly. To me the new 16-55 is primarily for the pro/serious amateur landscape/architectural/wedding photographer, who is regularly shooting in harsh conditions (snow, rain, blowing sand) and who is after the best image quality. weaks: coloured fringing in corners at 16mm (but easily corrected in RAW). Softness in extreme corners at 16mm and 55mm between f2.8 and f4, but very good in center/middle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fuji XF 16-55mm f:2.8: One great lens I presently own the X-E2, X-T1, 14mm, 23mm, 18-55mm kit, 56mm, 55-200mm. As a former (Nikon-Leica) professional of 20 years and now retired, I have found all of my Fuji lenses to be delivering outstanding image quality. Equal to the best from Nikon and some as good as Leica. I just added the Fuji XF 16-55mm f:2.8 to my collection. Out of the box the lens is outstanding in sharpness, construction, and operation. My image quality looks as sharp as pictures taken with my 56mm f:1.2, which has been rated by some as one of the top 4 lenses on the market today. In very low light conditions I have pushed the ISO to 3,200 and at f:2.8, hand held at 1/40, and obtained outstanding results. This is a great lens for photographic artist.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from (almost) As good as prime. If you're a typical prime-lens aficionado, or are zoom-averse, you might be blown away by the performance of this lens. Fuji pulled all the stops with this one, truly could be a prime lens replacement. There are several good professional reviews and you should read those if you want all the good details, so here's just a few of my own observations: The lens hood feels flimsy; the bokeh is good but not great; the focus is electronic, not mechanically linked; there is no internal stabilization. Bottom LIne: I'd say that this lens justifies it's price in the performance it gives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Lens! This lens just might be the ultimate Fujifilm lens. It's fast, constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and ideal wide angle to short telephoto range make it a lens that will stay on your camera a lot. Yes, it's larger than most Fujifilm lenses, and yes, it's heavier, too. But compared to my full frame DSLR kit with comparable lens, it's much smaller and lighter. I use this lens on a Fuji X-T1 body with the battery grip and it handles and balances very nicely. Feels like it was just made for this camera and grip. Optically, it's fantastic. Sharp wide open and throughout the zoom range. I was not sure I would really see much difference from the excellent 18-55mm kit lens, but really wanted the additional 2mm on the wide end so I purchased it. You will see a difference. The 16-55 is in a class of it's own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Lens I;ve been shooting with Fuji XT-1 for about a year and a half, trying both prime lenses and zoom. Since I travel a lot I want a light and versatile kit with me. Earlier I mainly used the 18-135mm lens but wasn't 100% happy with the crispness of the photos. I then saw a website testing various lenses at different focus settings and apertures and found that the 16-55mm was consistently sharper than the 18-135mm. I decided to try this lens for two reasons, 80% of my photography (landscape and cityscapes) were shot at max 55mm and if I needed to come closer, 135 mm wasn't enough. The lens I received has worked perfectly for me. It is extremely sharp, quiet and had none of the issues described by some. The lens is big and relatively heavy but is well balanced with my XT-1 with a battery grip. It is worth noting that I mostly shoot from tripod with manual focus in low light. I would strongly recommend this lens based on my experience. In my kit I now travel with the 16-55 plus the 55-200 and the Touit 50 mm macro lens from Carl Zeiss

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Go To Zoom in a Travel Kit Figuring out what mix of lenses you'll take on foreign travel is always chewing on prime vs zoom, and how much aperture you're willing to get or give up. On my way to Scotland, I took my Fuji 10-24, the 16-55 reviewed here, the 90mm/f2 prime (so gorgeous), and the new 100-400. I ended up using them all for a trip photo archive that really shows off the strengths of each, but the unquestionable lenses that stayed on the most was this 16-55; it's absolutely sharp at all ranges; and 2.8 is plenty plenty for any 55mm end bokeh when you don't want to pull out the 90mm/2. It took great landscape photos, near macros, and medium range zoom (55mm)...all of them turned out gorgeous. Really worth the investment. Nothing I didn't like about it...it's quick, all the marks are on the lens, so when you shoot with Fuji XT-1, XT-2, or X-pro2, you can dial in everything very fast for any situation that comes up. Love it. Buy it.
