Versatile and Useful: A Review of the Fujifilm XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR Lens

A lot of photographers love to have a walkaround lens they can keep on their camera for a variety of situations they encounter — typically a zoom with a decent range and an aperture of f/2.8 or f/4. If you are looking for such a lens for your Fuji camera, this great video review takes a look at the XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR lens.

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this helpful review examines the Fuji XF 16-80mm f/4 R OIS WR lens. The 16-80mm offers a useful 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-120mm, allowing it to step into a range of shooting scenarios with ease. I used a 24-105mm f/4 lens for many years, and it was by far my favorite lens in my bag during that time, accompanying me on many shoots and trips. Fuji's take on the classic design comes with three aspherical elements and one ED aspherical elements to reduce aberrations and increase sharpness, Super EBC coating for better contrast and less flares and ghosting, and full weather-sealing. It also comes with optical image stabilization with up to six stops of compensation and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts.

I am so tired of videos. I just want to read things like this.

There is a *** **** article on it, and Fstoppers posts a video. For the love of all that is holy, choose the article, Fstoppers! It's great!

Videos are hard work. Fast forward isn't useful. With reading you can skim/scan and find information quickly.
