Versatile Zoom for Content Creators
A standard zoom purpose-built for content creators and image-makers with a penchant for motion, the FUJIFILM XF 18-120mm f/4 LM PZ WR covers a versatile focal length range and features an inspired design for intuitive control over zoom, focus, and aperture adjustment from the camera body. This zoom is the first X Series lens built in collaboration with FUJINON cine and broadcast lens designers and is a go-to all-around lens choice for video and motion applications.
Designed for Motion
Featuring variable power zoom and smooth manual focus, and supporting stepless aperture control from select cameras, this 18-120mm enables precise, fine control over focus and exposure. Cameras already confirmed to be able to perform stepless aperture control for this lens include the FUJIFILM X-H2S, X-T4, X-T3, and X-S10.
  • Power zoom can easily and smoothly transition throughout the focal length range. This mechanism can be controlled by a newly designed zoom lever, which offers variable zoom speeds.
  • Conventional focus ring allows direct and intuitive manual focus control and the lens offers seamless switching between continuous autofocus and manual focus. Requiring a camera firmware update, this unique control method opens up the possibilities for making creative focus transitions and control the focal point whenever required.
  • Two custom function buttons can be used to preset a constant zoom speed, focal length, or focus point.
Flexible Zoom and Advanced Optics
  • Spanning a useful wide-angle to mid-telephoto range, this zoom offers a 27-183mm equivalent focal length range to serve as a viable single lens solution for everyday shooting.
  • Constant f/4 maximum aperture offers consistent illumination throughout the zoom range, which pairs well with the constant nature of the focusing, AF, and zoom controls.
  • Three aspherical elements control distortions and spherical aberrations in order to produce sharper imagery with more accurate rendering.
  • Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for a high degree of clarity and color accuracy.
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth, circular bokeh quality when using shallow depth of field and selective focus effects.
Intuitive Handling and Robust Construction
  • Benefitting its use on gimbal stabilization devices, this lens's internal zoom and internal focusing design helps to maintain consistent balance and overall lens length during use.
  • Despite the inclusion of a power zoom mechanism and a broad focal length range, this lens still weighs in at just about 1 lb, making for a lightweight design that helps maintain compatibility with a variety of stabilization tools.
  • Weather-resistant design protects against dust and moisture and cold temperatures down to 14°F.
  • Front fluorine coating protects against water, grease, dirt, and smudging, and also makes it easier to clean the front element.

Is it possible to bypass the zoom motor and just have the lens zoom mechanically (i.e. FULLY mechanically, without the motor)?
Asked by: Jonathan
This lens will only zoom when attached to a camera. The zoom motor requires power to function, meaning that you won't be able to zoom mechanically without the motor.

The overview states "Conventional focus ring allows direct and intuitive manual focus control" -- does this mean actual mechanical focus control, or is it still "focus-by-wire"?
Asked by: James S
The new XF 18-120mm f/4 R LM PZ WR is still focus-by-wire, but has a focusing mechanism/system akin to a linear focus drive that helps manual focusing feel more responsive and intentional.

How does the image quality and AF compare to the Fujifilm 18-135mm?
Asked by: TRAVIS
Optically the FUJIFILM XF 18-120mm f/4 LM PZ WR Lens and the FUJIFILM XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR Lens are comparable. They both also have fast smooth autofocus. The key differences are mostly related to video. The 18-120mm has the benefit of being a power zoom lens with internal zoom. It is also parfocal and supports stepless aperture control from select cameras. The 18-120 also has a constant f4 aperture as opposed to a variable aperture on the 18-135. The 18-135 has the benefit of being a stabilized lens.

I read that this lens has click-less aperture ring. My question is, can this be disabled, to allow the aperture ring to click as it turns?
Asked by: Jonathan
No, it is not click less the FUJIFILM XF 18-120mm f/4 LM PZ WR Lens. It is Step less Control from Select Cameras. So that means it is infinitely adjustable in terms of the aperture but from the camera.
