FUJIFILM 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 overview

  • 1Description

Covering wide-angle to portrait-length focal lengths, the silver XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II Lens from Fujifilm provides a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range and is designed for use on their APS-C-format X-series mirrorless digital cameras. The standard zoom range is complemented by optical image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to render sharper imagery at longer focal lengths and when working with slower shutter speeds. The optical design features three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element to help minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions and a Super EBC coating has been applied to reduce ghosting and flare for clearer, more color-accurate results.

Standard zoom lens provides a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range, making it suitable for a wide variety of shooting applications.
Optical image stabilization works to reduce the appearance of camera shake to suit working in low-light conditions throughout the zoom range.
Three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and contribute to overall image sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
A Super EBC coating has been applied to reduce lens flare and ghosting in order to produce higher contrast and maintain color neutrality.
A macro setting 5.9" minimum focusing distance at the wide end of the zoom range benefits working with close-up subject matter. A normal minimum focusing distance of 2' throughout the zoom range is also well-suited to working with a variety of subject types.
A rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. The aperture range is divided into 1/3 EV steps, with 17 steps total throughout the aperture range.

    FUJIFILM 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 reviews

    XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II Lens (Silver) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BANG for the BUCK ! First, let me say the five star rating is based on the value of this lens when bought in a kit. I already had a XF 18-55 when I got this lens in a kit. The physical difference is obvious. Slower, plastic construction, no aperture ring, and a relatively cheap feel. It does not have the pride of ownership of the 18-55. That said, it is optically quite good. Head to head with the 18-55, it acquits itself quite well. You have to get into the extreme enlargement category to to see that the 18-55 is a little sharper. I really liked extra wide angle and the slight loss of telephoto isn't missed at all. Overall, this is a great picture taker, and for a C note over the price of a body only it's an outstanding value. In the overall scheme of things, I would recommend getting this lens and using it while saving up to get the really outstanding 16-55 f2.8 if you feel the need for something better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value if bought as a kit or used Handling the 18-55 in a store left me with the impression of being a little too big for the petite X-T10. Enter the 16-50 XC. Smaller, lighter, cheaper and wider than the 18-55! If you don't mind the lack of an aperture ring and the plasticky build and want a lens that's sharp, has an effective OIS and balances well with smaller bodies, then this is for you. And AF is so much quieter compared to older primes like the 60 or 27.
