Review – Fujinon XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 WR lens | Jonas Jacobsson

The XF 16-55 mm f/2.8 WR lens is the second of Fujifilms new weather resistant lenses with a fast, constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range, with this one released just after the XF 50-140 mm f/2.8 WR lens (the review of this lens you can find here). Together with the Fujifilm X-T1 these three make up for a professional type of kit (Fujifilm actually calls it their “Flagship XF zoom”, covering almost any focal length you might need (16-55 mm and 50-140 mm), all in a weather sealed package. This lens also won the TIPA-award for “Best CSC Expert Zoom Lens”. Like the other WR zoom and the X-T1 this lens is also guaranteed to handle operation all the way down to -10 degrees celsius. All the specs about this lens and some more can be found over att Fujifilms official website. (Thanks also to Fujifilm Nordic for lending me this lens.) I have been testing this lens now for a while, in all kinds of situations, to see how well it performs and why it may (or not) be the lens for you. Here are some short ups and downs of the lens that I have experienced durng my testing……..
