Fujifilm’s New XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 has Gyro Sensors and
an Air Vent | The Phoblographer

Fujifilm is continuing to build up its family of weather-resistant lenses and now its announced a new XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6. The new lens adds a 27-206mm equivalent focal length to Fujifilm’s burgeoning lineup of X-Series lenses. What’s more, the lens features some of the Japanese camera company’s best optical stabilization system technology yet. The new XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6 comes equipped with two “high-precision” gyro sensors that counter balance any shake or movement. With this new OIS system Fujifilm claims the new lens has 5.0-stops of image stabilization. The improved IS should hopefully keep things very steady especially at longer focal lengths when photographers need every bit of stabilization they can get. The lens also features more than 20 sealing points for a dust-proof and weather-resistant design that should pair perfectly with the Fujifilm X-T1. As part of its design this piece of glass also has a new air vent located towards the bottom of the lens. Supposedly this “air ventilator” helps push air out of the lens as the barrel retracts. Of course, air also comes back when the user zooms in but Fujifilm tells us that the air vent is fitted with a filter to keep out dust and moisture……..
