    The Electronic Imaging Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation is pleased to introduce its compact 5x standard zoom lens, FUJINON XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR, as it joins the lineup of interchangeable lenses available for the X Series mirrorless digital cameras. This small, lightweight lens is highly portable and versatile for all types of photography.

    Featuring a constant maximum aperture value of F4 and a focal length range from 16mm to 80mm (equivalent to 24-122mm in the 35mm film format), this lens achieves a minimum shooting distance of 13.8 inches (35 cm) over the entire zoom range, providing a maximum shooting magnification of 0.25x, and covering a wide shooting area. In addition, it is small and lightweight at 15.5 ounces(440g); about 40% lighter than a 35mm full size equivalent specification lens, achieving five times zoom in the same size and weight of full size three times zoom lenses. While the lens is naturally designed for photographers, especially those specializing in portraiture, landscape, or general photography, it’s also is a great fit for filmmakers, thanks to its versatile combination of focal lengths and Optical Image Stabilization.

    Some of the XF16-80mm F4 R OIS WR’s key features:

    Specially designed to get the most out of X-Trans CMOS Sensors

    X-Trans CMOS Sensors are designed to provide maximum image quality, especially when paired with the stunning design and sharpness of FUJINON lenses. Consisting of 16 elements in 12 groups, the FUJINON XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR Lens also features one aspherical element that is specially designed to minimize field curvature and spherical aberration. This results in stunning levels of image sharpness from the center of the frame to the edges, even at the wider end of the lens’ focal range. Add in the fact that this lens has very little focus breathing, has an ability to focus up to 14in (35cm) from a subject, and features a broad range of focal lengths, it’s clearly an ideal pick for photographers and filmmakers needing versatility, but not wanting to sacrifice image quality.

    A small, compact, and versatile lens for any shooting situation

    Covering an effective focal range from 24mm to 122mm, the FUJINON XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR weighs just 15.5 oz (440 g) and is only 3.5in (88.9mm) long. This makes it approximately 40% lighter than similar, 35mm system lenses, which means it won’t weigh you down when spending an entire day looking to capture that perfect moment.

    Push the limits with 6.0 stops of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)

    As if extending the possibilities of hand-held capture with 6.0 stops of CIPA-Rated Optical Image Stabilization wasn’t enough, the FUJINON XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR lens can absorb any vibration from a mechanical shutter. The OIS can also automatically detect when the camera is being used with a tripod and adjust its performance to provide optimum image quality.

    Be ready for unpredictable moments with quick, responsive, and near-silent autofocus

    Having fast and quiet autofocus is critical when you’re roaming the streets looking for that perfect image. Our engineers went to great lengths to build the right motors to accurately, quietly and precisely drive focusing elements so you can count on it the instant you need it.

    Weather resistant to keep the images coming

    Weather-sealed in ten places along the barrel, this lens is capable of operating in temperatures down to 14°F (-10°C). Work fearlessly in dusty or damp conditions and keep peace of mind when in freezing or terribly hot, humid conditions.

    The XF16-80mmF4 R OIS WR lens will be available September 26, 2019 in the U.S. and Canada at a price of USD $799.95 and CAD $1,049.99. For more information, visit s_wr/ .

    Compact with a constant F4 aperture: FUJIFILM presents the new FUJINON XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR

    Latest addition to the X Series lens lineup boasts the highest amount of optical stabilisation in any interchangeable lens. Lightweight (440g) and Compact (88.9mm in length, it boasts a range of focal lengths from wide angel to mid telephoto with a constant F4 aperture making it the ideal lens to travel with.

    FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced the compact 5x zoom lens, “FUJINON XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR”, will join the lineup of interchangeable lenses for the X Series range of digital cameras.

    This new lens has a maximum aperture value of F4 throughout the focal length of 16-80mm (equivalent to 24-122mm in the 35mm film format). This lens has a minimum shooting distance of 35 cm over the entire zoom range, which gives a maximum shooting magnification of 0.25x. The compact and lightweight lens weighs only 440g which is approximately 40% lighter than an equivalent lens for a 35mm format system.

    When attached to an X-T3 the kit weighs only 979g and 823g when combined with X-T30, making it the ultimate travel combination. This new standard zoom lens features 6.0 stops OIS, meaning you can comfortably shoot in a wide variety of situations from a night scene or indoors without worrying about camera shake.

    The XF 16-80mm F4 R OIS WR is a 5x standard zoom lens that consists of 16 lens elements in 12 groups. This includes three aspherical lens elements, and one ED aspherical lens to effectively control field curvature and spherical aberrations giving advanced levels of sharpness across the frame. Its inner focus AF system1 uses a stepping motor2 to drive the focusing group of lens elements quietly and quickly. The powerful OIS has an effective correction of 6.0 stops which widens the shooting scenarios the lens can be used.

    The design of the lens which features metal aspects on the exterior, showcases the premium quality and durability of the product. The zoom, aperture and focus rings have been designed for optimum handling and user comfort. The lens is also dust and weather resistant, and operates at temperatures as low as -10°C.

    Product features

    Advanced image quality

    The lens consists of 16 elements in 12 groups, including three aspherical lens elements and one ED aspherical lens. The aspherical lens elements are controlled at high precision to reduce field curvature and spherical aberration, resulting in an advanced level of image sharpness across the frame.

    By using an ED aspherical lens as an OIS lens, aberration fluctuation due to image stabilisation is suppressed.

    In addition, this lens has a minimum focusing distance of 35 cm close-up photography over the entire zoom range. The lens has very little breathing making it suitable for movie shooting.

    Compact, lightweight and stylish design for superior operability

    • The compact 5x zoom lens weighs just 440g for excellent portability. In addition, the total length is the compact size of 88.9 mm. Approximately 40% lighter than a full size 5x zoom lens.
    • Metal aspects of the exterior achieve a stylish look that gives additional quality and durability.
    • The zoom, aperture and focus rings have just the right amount of torque for better handling.

    Powerful OIS

    It has the strongest OIS performance equivalent to 6.0 CIPA-guideline standard. The camera automatically detects when it is fixed to a tripod or when panning, and adjusts accordingly.

    Fast and silent autofocus

    The lens uses the internal focus AF system that drives smaller and lighter focusing elements. It uses a stepping motor, known for its quiet operation and accuracy, to achieve fast and silent autofocus.

    Advanced construction

    The lens barrel is sealed at 10 locations making the lens dust and weather resistant and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C.

    Mounting it on weather sealed mirrorless digital cameras such as X-Pro2, X-T1, X-T2, X-T3 and X-H1 allows you to shoot in light rain or a dusty environment outdoors with peace of mind.
