An ultra-wide zoom characterized by a bright and advanced optical design, the XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR from FUJIFILM
is a 12-24mm-equivalent lens featuring a constant f/2.8 maximum
aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. The
optical layout comprises six extra-low dispersion elements, including
three Super ED elements, which help to virtually eliminate chromatic
aberrations and color fringing for greater clarity and color accuracy.
Four aspherical elements are also used to suppress distortion, curvature
of field, and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness. Also, a
Nano-GI coating helps to control ghosting and flare for enhanced
contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Complementing the optics is a refined linear motor, which affords quick
and quiet autofocus performance, and the lens body is weather-sealed in
11 distinct places to support working in trying environmental
