Fujifilm 16-50mm Lens Review | William Brawley

We’ve just published our review for the Fujinon XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS, the kit lens paired with the Fujifilm X-M1 and X-A1, and we were thoroughly impressed with the results from this lightweight and well-built wide-to-medium-tele zoom lens. Despite the „kit lens“ connotation, this Fujinon lens is another one to break the traditional mold of a mediocre optic. With excellent sharpness, even wide-open, as well as minimal CA, and low vignetting and distortion, the Fujinon XC 16-50mm is a very solid performer that produces excellent images. It feels solid, despite its all-plastic construction, and well-balanced on Fuji’s lightweight mirrorless cameras. A fairly straightforward lens, it does feature 3 aspherical elements and 1 ED element like it’s more expensive sibling, the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, as well as Fuji’s EBC coatings for reduced flare and ghosting. Plus, it has built-in Optical Image Stabilization to help with those slower shutter speed shots. It’s an all-around great choice for Fuji shooters looking for a high-quality and affordable everyday lens for things like landscapes, travel and portraiture…….
