The weather-resistant XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR zoom lens delivers ultra-sharp images in any weather, and offers users the classic zoom range with a focal length equivalent of 24mm to 84mm, with a constant F2.8 aperture throughout the range. The XF16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR uses 14 sealing points for a durable, weather-resistant, dust-proof design that makes it the perfect companion for photographers who don’t want to compromise when weather conditions are challenging. Whether shooting wide angle landscapes or medium-telephoto portraits, the XF16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR delivers ideal image results from edge to edge.
Optically designed to draw out the maximum image quality as a flagship standard zoom lens
In order to achieve the best-in-class image quality, the fast standard zoom lens with a constant aperture of F2.8 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.
Nine rounded aperture blades create a smooth, circular bokeh. The suppression of spherical aberration to the ultimate extent contributes to produce beautiful bokeh at both the front and back.
High-speed, quiet auto focus thanks to the Linear Motor
By reducing the weight of the focus lens and mounting the Twin Linear Motor, high-speed, quiet AF is possible. The fastest AF speed of 0.06 seconds brings comfort to your photo-shoot when by combining this lens with an X Series camera body* offering Phase Detection AF. Combined with the near-silent shutter sound, photos can be taken unnoticed in quiet locations.
Weather resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation
By applying seals to each portion of the barrel, the lens is weather-resistant, dust-resistant and -10°C low-temperature operation, making it the perfect companion for the FUJIFILM X-T1, which has the same levels of protection.
