The Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 R LM WR is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens designed for Fujifilm X-series cameras. It is designed for APS-C sensors, so the focal length, when converted to a 35mm equivalent, is 12-24mm. It has a field of view ranging from 121° to 83.2°.

But what do the numbers mean? Here are some real-world examples that translate those numbers into visual examples of the zoom range of this lens and what it looks like in practical shooting.

Things Worth Knowing

  • To prevent the distracting lens distortion that one would typically experience at such a wide perspective, it features four aspherical elements that I have found to do an excellent job of keeping lines straight.
  • The lens’s maximum aperture is ƒ/2.8, and that maximum remains constant throughout the zoom range.
