FUJIFILM XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Overview

An ultra-wide zoom characterized by a bright and advanced optical design, the XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR from FUJIFILM is a 12-24mm-equivalent lens featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. The optical layout comprises six extra-low dispersion elements, including three Super ED elements, which help to virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color accuracy. Four aspherical elements are also used to suppress distortion, curvature of field, and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness.

Complementing the optics is a refined linear motor, which affords quick and quiet autofocus performance, and the lens body is weather-sealed in 11 distinct places to support working in trying environmental conditions.

Impressively wide zoom is designed for FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 12-24mm 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.
Six extra-low dispersion elements, including three Super ED 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, curvature of field, 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.
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.

FUJIFILM XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Reviews

So Wide!!

By Michael
Rated 5 out of 5

Great build like the other Fujifilm red badge zooms. Amazing lack of distortion given the angle of view. Heavier than the 16-55 f/2.8 but lighter than the 50-140 f/2.8. Should be great for landscape and architectural work.

Great Lens - not for everyone

Truth is this is quickly becoming my favorite lens for my X series camera. The quality across the board it top notch. Simply a great lens. My two big issues - there is no way to protect the front element. While it is a WR lens, given the cost and the large exposed front element, I am a bit nervous to bring it out on a more daunting shoot. Second the angle of view is so wide that you really need to be sure you need a lens like this. It can be trick to keep distortion at a minimum, and really compose your shot. Ive been using it for Architecture and it has been great - but if I wasn't shooting Arch I'd be better served with the 10-24.

Just Wow, I'm not kidding!

The XF 8-16/2.8 is a beautifully built and incredibly performing lens. Careful testing on my X-Pro3 shows the 8-16 has stunning sharpness, contrast and color right across the field from 2.8 on up. It is the best super wide angle zoom I've ever owned and I've owned quality over the years. I currently have the Sony 12-24/4 G for my Sony A7R3 (42MP). The 8-16 XF beats the 12-24 G in the far corners wide open (2.8 vs 4.0) at all equivalent focal lengths. That Sony is a quality lens and a good sample. When Fuji brings out a future higher MP model (32, 43MP?) This 8-16 will be ready for it. BTW, It handles very nicely on my X-Pro3 with the addition of the Fuji MHG hand grip and Lensmate Thumbrest.

Fun Lens!

Bought this lens for use with my XPro 3 and I found it to be a lens that I could find opportunities with. I didn't find it to be overly heavy although I wasn't carrying anything else. Focusing was quick and the images were excellent. Note that the enclosed pic hasn't been post processed.

Amazingly Sharp!

This lens paired with the X-T4 is a brilliant combination resulting in super sharp handheld images. Be prepared for the size and weight of this lens, it is substantial but worth it.

Fantastic!

This lens makes you smile. The quality you expect and more. Great for low light urban and landscape shots. Cool for those tight indoor shots as well. It's expensive but if you want a versatile lens to pair with your 16-55 you won't be disappointed

Great experience

Freakin' Awesome Bigass Lens

Expensive and heavy. Would probably have gone for the more practical and more affordable 10-24 f4 without the $500 discount. But if those are not your concerns, this is a freakin' awesome wide angle zoom. Would have killed for this when I was a working professional photog. Oh, well. My favorite wide was my Nikon 24mm f2. This is even better. Yeah. And much bigger. You get what you're willing to carry. Face it. The 10-24 doesn't fit in your shirt pocket anyway. Fuji has some lovely wide and fast primes. Ooh! that 16mm f1.4? Just depends what you want. But 8mm wide (well, 12mm full frame)? This is amazing.

If I already have the 16-55 2.8, does this lens somehow replace or is it better than the fuji 10-24?
Asked by: Jose
This lens doesn't replace the 10-24, if you need super wide, then it would be better for landscapes and architecture than the 10-24mm.

Did anyone attempt astro photography with this lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is incredibly wide, so I personally would not suggest using it for astrophotography unless you are using it for ultrawide-field photography, such as imaging the Milkyway band. Despite this, if you were to choose to use it for such purpose, If would perform admirably due to the very high-quality optics in this lens.
