Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8 Review | MirrorLessons

As a working events photographer, there are two zooms that I’ve used more than any other. They are usually known as the 24-70mm and 70-200mm equivalent on a DSLR/full-frame camera.

I also know several photographers who prefer primes to zooms. It is a personal choice but when it comes to versatility, you can rarely beat a 2.8 zoom lens. And versatility can often be crucial on the job. The Fujifilm X system has rapidly become popular amongst professional photographers, especially for the wedding genre.

I also know some who use the 18-55mm f/2.8-4, which was the X-E1/E2 kit lens and at the time, the fastest zoom available. As such, it was a natural consequence to see the release of two professional zoom lenses with a constant and fast aperture……
