A weather-resistant zoom lens with a constant aperture of F2.8 across the focal lengths equivalent to 24mm at wide-angle through to 84mm at medium-telephoto, the XF16-55mm delivers ultra-sharp images even at wide open apertures across the entire zoom range!
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.
High-speed, quiet auto focus thanks to the Linear Motor
An Inner Focusing System is used for high-speed AF. 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.
High build quality and comfortable operation
Both the focus and aperture rings are metal, plus metal is also used on the exterior of the lens body for a high-quality finish.
There can be only one & this lens is it.
This is a superb zoom lens. It’s sharp & fast. Its metal construction makes it sturdy. The fit & finish on this lens is superior to anything made by Canon & Nikon. If you buy only one zoom for your Fuji X, this is the one. The only thing I wish this lens had is OIS. That being said, it’s already pretty heavy if you’re using the x-t2 like I am, so it really doesn’t need extra weight.
