Fujinon XF 16-80mm F/4 R OIS WR – The Ultimate All-Around Lens For Fuji For Sale

This new, compact, and extremely versatile lens ought to be a terrific addition to a lot of photographers, and we have the opportunity to shoot a pre-production version for a couple of days. The lens features 6-stops of Picture Stabilization, the most of any Fujinon lens, making it great for reduced light usage, despite its own f/4 aperture. It also has a minimum focusing distance of just 35cm, enabling photographers to receive nice close-up photos when zoomed into 80mm. With its 9-blade curved aperture, the bokeh balls are nice and smooth, and the overall bokeh is tender and pleasing without being too distracting.
The OIS is designed to automatically detect if the camera is used on a tripod, and consequently there is absolutely no switch to turn the OIS on/off. In fact, there are no buttons on this lens in any way. The focus ring will be focus by wire, and while some may prefer the push/pull clutch ring like a few lenses have, the resistance is nice and manually focusing when shooting videos is a breeze. The zoom ring has a nice amount of resistance for this, despite being somewhat hefty, there’s no zoom creep when the lens is pointed down, eliminating the need for a zoom lock. The lens is also weather sealed in 10 spots throughout the barrel, making it great for those who shoot in inclement conditions. With some zoom lenses that package in greater than 4x optical zoom, the telephoto end of the zoom range can occasionally be a bit soft. On this lens, the sharpness from 40-80mm is top notch, and I found myself using the telephoto range of the lens more so than the wide end. While 16mm is usable for wide angle photographs, I would like the 10-24 or 8-16 for landscape photos. read more

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 R WR Lens

Designed for Fujifilm APS-C mirrorless cameras, this new streamlined Fujinon 35mm f2 lens provides the promise of reduced cost compared to f1.4 version, but higher image quality and weather resistance. It will be interesting to learn how it provides as we put it through its paces.
Fujifilm XF 35mm f2 R WR Managing and Characteristics
There’s no denying that nicely made lenses are a joy in themselves, little optical stones. This Fujifilm lens is superbly made with a metal exterior, which leads to a surprisingly heavy optic for its compact dimensions. Its solidity is not in doubt and it bayonets securely and smoothly onto the Fujifilm cameras. There is not any rotational play in the mount when seated.
The manual focusing ring is located towards the front part of the lens, is nicely ribbed for traction and turns smoothly. It has a fairly high resistance but this does give a great and dependable feel to guide focusing. Being digital in operation, this is a very different feel to the conventional focusing ring. read more

The Fujinon XF 18-55mm ƒ/2.8-4 R LM OIS is Fujifilm’s first zoom lens for the X-mount; it’s also Fujifilm’s first optically-stabilized lens. While 18-55mm is a common range for APS-C kit lenses, the variable aperture of ƒ/2.8-4 is uncommonly bright. read more

Just when you though the bokeh of the original Fuji 56mm ƒ/1.2 couldn’t get any better, Fujifilm introduced a special version of their portrait prime at Photokina 2014, the 56mm ƒ/1.2R APD. The “APD” stands for apodization, by which a filter is introduced into the optical path that features a smooth, circular gradation that darkens toward the outer edge. This essentially provides a softer edge to the lens’s aperture and promises to provide smoother out of focus blur, but at the expense of some light transmission. read more
