XF 18-120mm f/4 LM PZ WR Lens with UV Filter Kit Overview

By B&H Photo's
FUJIFILM XF 18-120mm f/4 LM PZ WR Lens
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.
Chiaro Pro 72mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 72mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

98% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allow you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Optical Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent optical clarity.
Multi-Coating
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

Is it possible to bypass the zoom motor and just have the lens zoom mechanically (i.e. FULLY mechanically, without the motor)?

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.
