Lens Description: Covering wide-angle to portrait-length focal lengths, the silver XC 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS II Lens from Fujifilm provides a 24-76mm equivalent focal length range and is designed for use on their APS-C-format X-series mirrorless digital cameras. The standard zoom range is complemented by optical image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake to render sharper imagery at longer focal lengths and when working with slower shutter speeds. The optical design features three aspherical elements and one extra-low dispersion element to help minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions and a Super EBC coating has been applied to reduce ghosting and flare for clearer, more color-accurate results.

    This is a small and lightweight standard kit-lens, with a focal range from 24-75 mm compared to full frame/FX. For its size and price, it is sharp and easy to work with. Best suited for entry level fuji cameras.

    Pros: Relatively sharp and contrasty, useful range that covers most everyday needs. Lightweight. OIS/VR is OK. Cheap (relative to other fuji lenses, not when compared to Nikon/Canon kit-lenses)

    Cons: No AF/MF/OIS switches on the lens, and no aperture ring. Images can look somehow flat, with little “3D-feel”. No weather sealing, and cheap build with plastic front to back. Prone to flare. This lens is an oddball in the fuji world, since it is stripped from all the controls that should be on the lens.
