Lens Description: Capture the world with this ultra-wide-angle XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens from Fujifilm. With four aspherical and six ED lens elements, including three super ED elements that specifically target lateral chromatic aberration, this lens offers exceptional control over fringing. A Nano-GI coating on the front two lens elements helps reduce ghosting and flare. Also in the lens is a field curvature correction element that can adjust position depending on the zoom. This element helps retain sharpness and reduces optical distortion that is normally found in ultra-wide angle lenses. Autofocus is powered by an internal linear motor that provides quick, quiet, and accurate focus. The lens is also weather sealed at 11 points and can withstand temperatures as cold as 14°F for use in adverse conditions.

Photography Life Review Summary: Without a doubt, Fuji has done a fine job with the XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR lens. It is an optically solid lens with very consistent sharpness across the whole focal length range – something many other zoom lenses struggle with in comparison.
