Fujifilm XF 16-55mm

A standard-length zoom built to handle harsh conditions, the Fujifilm XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR, at its lowest price from Foto Discount World, is a weather-sealed lens offering the 35mm focal length equivalence of 24-82.5mm for versatile wide-angle to portrait length perspectives. With a constant f2.8 maximum aperture, it is effective in low light conditions and able to control focus placement with a shallow depth of field. Compatible with all Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless digital cameras, it features a sophisticated lens design, internal focusing and a Twin Linear Motor AF system for exceedingly fast and near silent autofocus operation.

Comprised of 17 elements in 12 groups, the optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion (ED) elements to control chromatic aberrations and three aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range. Additionally, a Nano-GI and HT-EBC coating has been applied to lens elements to alter the refractive index between elements, minimize surface reflections, and prevent lens flare and ghosting. And, in combination with select X-series cameras, Lens Modulation Optimiser technology corrects for diffraction, even at small apertures, for heightened edge-to-edge sharpness.

The “Fujifilm XF 16-55mm” F2.8 R LM WR  lens barrel incorporates 14 distinct weather seals to render it both moisture and dust resistant for confident use in inclement conditions. Its minimum focus distance is 11.8″, and its 9-blade circular diaphragm renders pleasing out-of-focus highlights.

FEATURES

  • Providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-82.5mm, the standard-length zoom Fujifilm XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens is ideal for numerous applications and skill-levels. Its wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives suit everyday shooting needs as well as the varying demands of advanced photographers who may need wide-angles and portrait lengths within the span of seconds.
  • Constant f2.8 maximum aperture enables consistent performance throughout the zoom range and excels when working in difficult lighting conditions. Aperture can be controlled at 1/3 EV steps.
  • The 17-element-in-12-group design includes three extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements to minimize chromatic and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range.
  • Fourteen distinct seals are placed across the lens barrel to render it weather- and dust-resistant and capable of functioning in temperatures as low as 14°F.
  • 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 and HT-EBC coating also suppresses ghosting and flare for overall sharp imaging.
  • By combining this lens with select X-Series camera bodies with Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) technology, the performance from the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
  • A Twin Linear Motor autofocus system delivers fast, smooth, near-silent performance that is especially beneficial to video applications and when working in noise-sensitive areas. Autofocus speeds are rated as fast as 0.06 seconds.
  • In macro mode at the wide-angle end the lens provides a minimum focus distance of 11.8″, enabling the user to be very close to their subject and still maintain sharp focus.
  • Nine rounded diaphragm blades contribute to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

Fujifilm XF 16-55mm

Fast and silent auto focus

The Fujifilm XF16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens features a twin linear motor providing high speed autofocus and near silent operation.

Spectacular optics

The lens consists of 17 elements in 12 groups, this includes three aspherical lens elements to control spherical aberration and distortion, and three ED glass lens elements to reduce lateral chromatic aberration (wide-angle) and axial chromatic aberration (telephoto), thereby achieving edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.

Great in low light

The lens features a maximum aperture of f2.8 throughout the whole zoom range, which greatly increases low light performance, for blur free low light shots

Beautiful background bokeh

The lens captures crisp images with extreme sharpness, and shallow depth of field in high focal lengths with beautifully smooth bokeh. The shallow depth of field and smooth bokeh makes your subject stand out from the background.

Weather resistant, dust-resistant and -10C low-temperature operation

Each portion of the barrel is sealed, making the lens weather-resistant, dust-resistant and capable of -10C low-temperature operation.

Fujifilm XF 16-55mm

A flexible workhorse of a lens, the XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR from FUJIFILM is a versatile standard zoom spanning a 24-84mm equivalent, wide-angle to portrait-length range. Characterized by its bright f2.8 constant maximum aperture, this lens is adept in difficult lighting conditions and also offers notable control over depth of field. Its optical design comprises both aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements, which help to reduce distortion and colour fringing for improved sharpness and colour accuracy throughout the zoom range. Nano-GI and HT-EBC coatings have also been applied to elements to minimize surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting.

Complementing the optical attributes is a Twin Linear Motor autofocus system, which offers impressively quick, quiet, and precise focusing that benefits both stills and video applications. Additionally, the lens has a fully weather-sealed design to support its use in trying environmental conditions.

Flagship Standard Zoom Lens

Achieve the best-in-class image quality with this fast standard zoom lens that has a constant aperture of f2.8 consisting of 17 elements in 12 groups. This includes three aspherical lens elements to control spherical aberration and distortion, and three ED glass lens elements to reduce lateral chromatic aberration (wide-angle) and axial chromatic aberration (telephoto), thereby achieving edge-to-edge sharpness across the entire zoom range.

Nine rounded aperture blades create a smooth, circular bokeh. The suppression of spherical aberration to the ultimate extent contributes to producing beautiful bokeh at both the front and back.

Applying Fujifilm’s unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to the entire area of the lens surface ensures ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear images. Also, using the newly developed Nano-GI (Gradient Index) coating technology, which alters the refractive index between glass and air, ghosting and flare are effectively reduced for diagonal incident light.

TIP! By combining this lens with an X Series camera body with Lens Modulation Optimiser (LMO) technology, the performance of the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
