Fujifilm Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS

Choosing between the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6,
and 18-55mm f/2.8-4 | Tom Grill

In my latest hands-on review of the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8 I mentioned that with this lens Fuji expands its lens system with a redundancy that covers more that one solution to the same optical coverage. For the consumer, this means more choice within the various focal length categories allowing photographers to tailor their lens choices to the specific way they use their equipment. A serious landscape photographer has very different equipment needs than a still life or lifestyle photographer, just as a photographer using the equipment casually has a different criteria than a pro who relies on it to make a living. I have received a number of emails from readers asking which of the three lenses I would recommend based upon specific criteria. So I decided to dedicate a blog post to the topic, and here it is. Here is one of the questions I received recently:

“I was thinking of buying the Fuji 18-135 as a convenient lens to used round the salt mashes, mudflats and coastal areas where I live. However the 16-55 seems to be having rave reviews, including your just published  review……..

16-55mm f/2.8 vs. 18-55mm f/2.8-4 vs. 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 | Fuji vs. Fuji

The pro standard zoom has long been a staple in almost every pro photographer’s bag. They are intended to be workhorses that can take anything we can throw at them. Low light, inclement weather, fast-moving subjects, you name it. At long last, Fuji’s standard f/2.8 zoom is available, which, along with the 50-140mm f/2.8 fills the two biggest gaps in their lens lineup. We could achieve these focal lengths before, but never with a constant aperture, and outside of 18mm, never at a maximum aperture of f/2.8. This piece will explore in-depth what you get for your extra money, aside from more size and weight…….

Street Photography – London | Mark Richards

Street photography can be a strange and intimidating experience. One technique you can try to make it easier and more focused is to set out with a specific subject in mind and then allow the shots to form around that.  In this case I chose shop fronts at night. This approach allows you to capture some good street photos without appearing obvious and looking for interesting shops to photograph will keep you alert.  Here are a few I took earlier this year (click on the photo to see full size).  All photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T1 and 18-55mm zoom lens…….

Souvenirs de Paris , la deuxième partie | Michelle George

I’ve just got back from vacation trip to Paris, this time it was for pleasure, not work…though after seeing Peter Lindberg’s current exhibition at the Gagosian gallery I felt an overwhelming need to take some pictures. So I contacted my friend and model Gina Woitke who happens to live in Paris with a view to combining street photography and portraiture. All I had on this trip was my Fuji X e1 with its 18-55 mm kit lens so we decided to keep it very raw. Stripped back, no make up, no styling and no retouching. All Post production is done in Adobe Lightroom with a view to give it a filmic look……..

Hands On Review: Fujifilm X-E2 + Fujifilm 18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS |
Antonio Jorge Nunes

I just got my hands on a Fuji X-E2 kit with the Fuji XF 18-55 F2.8-4 OIS lens. As a longtime DSLR user, I’ve been skeptical about the mirrorless systems’ capabilities. I’ve tried a fair number of top compact cameras, but the results were always lacking. Last month, I got to play with a Fuji X-E1 for some time, and the results were really surprising in the best possible way. General use, image quality, and high ISO performance were on par with any APS-C DSLR I’ve tried. The X-E2 is even better. It has a better EVF, it’s faster, and it can focus better in low light conditions with its phase detection focusing system. It also boasts a second generation sensor and some nice improvements like dedicated AE-L / AF-L buttons…..

The tourist lens | Don Craig

This past week, Fujifilm sent me a sample of their new, weather-sealed, high-magnification zoom lens, the XF18-135mmF3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR, to try. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to use it as I believe it is intended. I took it with me on a day trip to a nearby island for the Saturday market. Fortunately, it was raining, so I tested it in optimum conditions (for a weather-resistant lens, that is). I also tried it for work this week, when I was photographing a protocol event in Vancouver…..

Ansible ohmage: Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS | Ohm Image

Generally, I cover events with a couple of trusty F-mount Nikkor Ai/S lenses. But last week I had a wine event that needed a bit more class than a Speedbooster. And, let’s be honest, the EVFs can get fiddly in the dark, especially when mated to fully manual lenses. OIS would come in handy. Despite first mounting the 18-55 to the X-Pro 1, I ended up keeping it on the X-T1 because — and please don’t judge me here — it looks like an SLR lens. The X-Pro 1 is orphaned by current XF designs. Yes, you read that correctly. AF performance wasn’t a deciding factor. Neither was sharpness. Looks did it for me. But back to the review. To complement it, I brought the tiny Leica Tele-Elmarit 2,8/90 (thin), which could cram itself twice inside the 18-55 and have room left over. In other words, the 18-55 isn’t a small lens. It’s just not too big. The event was an industry event. Hi-Resolution audio was the keynote, and bigwigs from a number of awesome companies were there. Portable awesomeness. Home awesomeness. Headphone awesomeness. It was all there. And I got to spend a bit of time at the booths listening to it all. My favourite? Hands down, the Chord Hugo. But let’s get back to the lens……..

Review: Fujifilm XF56mm vs XF18-55mm? | Bigheadtaco

Primes versus zooms? It’s the great debate among camera equipment enthusiasts, pro photographers, and camera reviewers. I remember this debate in the film era, and it still continues in our digital era. In the 1970’s, primes were superior to zooms, no argument. Zooms got better in the 80’s, but due to their slower speeds, those that needed fast glass still chose primes. In the 90’s, faster zooms appeared, and the image quality divide between primes and zooms became narrower. How about today? Are primes still superior to zooms in the era of digital imaging, especially when many manufacturers are using digital technology to correct many optical imperfections in images? Is there a need for primes, since whatever weakness existed with zooms in the past can now be fixed post production? Let’s check out the advantages of both zooms and primes even in our digital era, including the disadvantages. Let’s review the Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F/1.2 and compare it with the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4 R OIS lens……

Panohood – handheld no-parallax panoramas for Fuji XF 18-55 mm
lens | Aleksandar Dimitrov

This small accessory allows photographers using the Fuji XF 18-55mm lens to take tripod-less panoramas. Panohood’s handle turns the camera around the no-parallax point of the lens at 18mm focal length. To use, clip the Panohood to the shortest end of the hood and rotate camera wile shooting vertically (i.e. in portrait mode). This is a simple and-yet creative solution for wide-angle indoors photography. With its small-factor and simplicity, Panohood is often times sufficient for complex panoramic tasks and obviates the need for bulky tripod systems…….
