Fujifilm 8-16mm F2.8 R LM WR XF Lens
Capture more of the world with the Fujinon XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Ultra Wide-Angle lens. Equipped with four aspherical, six extra-low dispersion (ED), and three super ED lens elements, this superior-quality lens is specifically designed to reduce or eliminate distortions and control the spherical and lateral chromatic aberrations that commonly occur in images taken with lower quality wide-angle lenses. The Nano-GI (Gradient Index) Coating Technology has also been applied to the two front lens elements, resulting in higher-quality images that are virtually free from ghosting and flare. To ensure that it delivers ultra-sharp images with little to no distortion, the XF 8-16mm f/2.8 integrates a field curvature correction element that automatically adjusts as you switch between focal lengths. A fast and discreet internal linear autofocus motor makes it easier to achieve ultra-precise focus, while the constant aperture of f/2.8 provides excellent low-light performance and depth of field control throughout the entire focal range. Finally, for reliable operation even in challenging outdoor shooting conditions, the lens features a weather-sealed body that can withstand temperatures of up to 14°F.
The XF8-16mmF2.8 R LM WR is a fast ultra-wide angle zoom lens that has a constant maximum aperture of F2.8 and is equivalent to 12-24mm in the 35mm format. It complements the other constant F2.8 zoom lenses (XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR and XF50-140mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR) to create a premium trio of lenses that covers the focal lengths equivalent from 12mm all the way to 213mm in the 35mm format. The lens’ outstanding edge-to-edge image-resolving performance and F2.8 maximum aperture makes this product a perfect choice for landscape and architecture photography with an emphasized sense of perspective, interior photography at restaurants and hotels, as well as nightscape and astrophotography.
Field curvature correction mechanism In order to correct
field curvature, typically found with ultra-wide angle lenses, this lens
features a correction element which adjusts according to the position of the
zoom in order to achieve edge-to-edge sharpness.
Double Nano-GI Coating The rear surface of the two front lens elements is treated with Nano-GI coating to eliminate ghosting and flare, caused by oblique light, creating clear images.
Silent and fast autofocus The lens uses linear motors for autofocus to achieve quiet and ultra-fast AF
Advanced construction that withstands various shooting conditions
The barrel is sealed at 11 places to make the lens resistant to dust, moisture, and low temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. The front lens element is coated with fluorine to repel water and dirt, adding extra durability so that the lens can be used outdoors with peace of mind.
