A telephoto zoom designed for use in trying conditions, Fujifilm's XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens is a weather-sealed optic 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 extends itself through the incorporation of a sophisticated lens design, highly effective optical image stabilization system, and a Triple Linear Motor AF system for refined performance.

Comprised of 23 elements in 16 groups, the optical design incorporates five extra-low dispersion (ED) elements and one Super ED element to markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range. Additionally, a Nano-GI coating has also been applied to elements to alter the refractive index in between elements to minimize surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting. This lens also sees the incorporation of 20 distinct weather seals across the barrel to render it both moisture and dust-sealed for use in inclement conditions as low as 14°F. An inner focusing and inner zoom design further help to prevent dust from entering the lens while also benefiting overall handling.

Providing a 76-213mm equivalent focal length range, this telephoto zoom lens is ideal for working with distant subjects and portraiture applications.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture enables consistent performance throughout the zoom range and excels when working in difficult lighting conditions.
The 23-element-in-16-group design includes five extra-low dispersion elements and one Super extra-low dispersion element to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range.
A 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 to for controlling ghosting and flare for greater image clarity.
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.
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.
A tripod collar is included for well-balanced mounting and shooting when working from a tripod or monopod.
An inner focusing and inner zooming design maintains the overall lens length during operation for quicker performance and greater resistance to dust or moisture from entering the lens. Additionally, 20 distinct seals are placed across the lens barrel to render it weather-resistant and capable of functioning in temperatures as low as 14°F.
Seven rounded diaphragm blades contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.
When used with an X-series camera that features a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) function, the lens' performance is enhanced to deliver consistent illumination and sharpness throughout the aperture range.

    XF 50-140mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 46.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Sweet Lens! I recently purchased this lens to use for short-range wildlife (e.g. shorebirds) portraits and as my all around zoom lens. I first used it on my XT-1 in tandem with my Canon 6D and the new 100-400L IS II. While some complain about the weight, in relation to the 6D/100-400L II set up, its as light as a feather the Canon rig was heavy, bulky, and unwieldy by comparison. The XT-1 with the 50-140 worked quite well, even without a grip (I've never used one). Even in low light, images were really sharp. I've walked about 10 miles on the beach with this on my shoulder and really didn't feel very heavy. Very easy to focus in all lighting conditions, quick, and tack sharp images. I would say on par with the Canon 100-400L IS II I mentioned earlier. I could not be happier with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Fuji 50-140 Is Super! When I first got an X-T1 with an 18-55mm lens, I could not afford to add the 50-140 lens. I was also concerned that its added weight would be counter to the idea of a high quality camera system that was light. But the quality of this lens is worth carrying the added weight. The focal length proved to be very appropriate for photographing intimate landscapes and gives very sharp results. Even better, the f/stop is on the outside of the lens just like in the old days, not in the view finder. Fuji has colored the f/stop blue-green on black and since I have old eyes, it is not always easy to see in either the viewfinder or on the LCD. Putting the f/stop on the lens itself makes it very easy to set. Great lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens! This lens is supper sharp!, even at f2.8 and at any zoom setting. Fiji needed something to match the Canon and Nikon 70-200mm and this does the job. It's fast focusing with my X-T1 in daylight, and is well balanced hand held. Haven't tried it in low light situations yet but so far I'm extremely happy with it. Fuji seems to be coming on strong with its pro orientated cameras and lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular lens I was used to using a Canon 70-200 2.8L, but found that I was using it less and less due to the weight. This lens is every bit its equal, but it only weighs as much as the Canon 70-200 F4! (roughly). The bokeh is wonderfully smooth (disregard the few nay-sayers who probably never owned one), and the IS is amazing. I really don't have anything bad to say about the lens. I removed the tripod foot as I never use one, and it makes it even lighter. It's still a large lens, but that's what you get when it's this well made. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Godsend for Photographers Like Me My work increasingly takes me on tour with traveling choirs who perform in low light environments, including European cathedrals, where I need fast glass and a long lens to get the reach I need. Three recent tours with my trusted Canon gear (5D3 and trinity of f/2.8 glass) gave me great results but with considerable cost in weight and bulk. I've been moving to the Fuji X system and couldn't wait for this lens to fill that 70-200mm role. This lens does not disappoint in terms of image quality. I have shot live theater performances, professional jazz artists and choir performances side by side with my beloved Canon 70-200 and this Fuji XF 50-140. There are distinct differences in image appearance between the two. I hesitate to say image quality because that infers a better/worse comparison, which is not what I mean. The files look different, and because I find the Fuji files in general to be more malleable in terms of ability to add clarity, contrast, shadow detail and other factors, I think I prefer the Fuji files made with this lens over the Canon files. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lens to anyone who shoots in low light environments. It's heavy by Fuji standards, but at f/2.8 across the focal length range, you get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product that meets and exceeds my expectations I have used the Fujifilm X-trans camera system for four years, starting with the XE1 and now using the XPro2. It is my primary street and travel photography system. (I use a full frame Canon system for my landscape, nature, and other photography.) I mostly use Fuji primes, but I originally augmented them with one zoom, the 55-200mm. I recently acquired the 50-140mm f/2.8 lens in advance of extensive travel. The performance of the lens on my XPro2 is excellent exceeding my expectations in terms of AF performance and image quality. It produces excellent images at all apertures (with the expected softening at smallest apertures due to diffraction blur). I was surprise by how fast and accurate the AF is. I had read complaints about the sound the lens makes, but I do not hear anything at all unusual from mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, quite pleased. This lens is HUGE. For the X system, it absolutely dwarfs the camera. I have it on an XT-1 and it's just comical looking. Anything smaller than that camera would be too small I believe. However, the image quality is astounding in good light. The lens exhibits great flare control and is apparently immune to flare. I couldn't get it to produce any negative results unless I shot directly into the sun. CA is nonexistent. Seriously, I can't see any at all. Now, I said it's outstanding in 'good light' didn't I? There are some caveats to the lens which must be addressed. AF isn't the quickest I've seen in lower light. It does hunt a bit, trying to assess the chosen point. It does shoot a bit darker than expected, my exposures always seem to be about stop to stop too low. Sharpness is sharp. I mean, really really sharp! This lens has a prime attitude towards clarity and sharpness which is extremely impressive. Looking over the pictures I took, it's evident that Fuji has really made IQ their first priority with this lens. (most of their lenses, let's be frank.) Bokeh is.. Well, it's what I would call 'great'. Not 'outstanding', but 'great'. I notice that OOF trees and leaves are rendered in a strange way. I can't tell if it's something I like or not. They can be slightly distracting in the right circumstance, but I suppose any lens can produce similar results if you're not careful about what lies beyond and before your subject. Weather sealing is excellent, despite the funky design of the seal. I shot with it yesterday in rain for 4 hours and wiped it off afterward with a towel. Taking the lens off the body showed that no water was able to make it inside the mount. The focus rings are somewhat stiff (good thing or bad, depending on viewpoint) I personally like it that way. There's less chance I'll knock it during shooting and it's very solid feeling when zooming. There is no grit to the movement at all, it's smooth as silk. Stiff, but smooth. The collar mount could have been metal, true. but all in all it does work and is easily removed for easier shooting. I assume they'll make it metal at some point in the future perhaps a V2, or at least make an accessory option for the metal one. Overall I am really pleased with it so far. I wish it weren't so pricey, but one pays for nice fast glass. I wish also that it were better at autofocusing in dimmer light situations, because after all, isn't that the point? I routinely bump my ISO higher than I'm used to because of this and even then sometimes because of the aforementioned underexposure issue, isn't quite enough. But overall, it's the best option if you're looking for the best possible glass in this focal range for your X-system camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST RIGHT I am a disabled guy and I am finding that this lens just seems to work for just a about everything from landscapes to small flowers. It even has two focus settings!
