A Review of the Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR Lens

A wide angle zoom lens is a great one to have in the bag for a variety of genres and scenarios, and for Fujifilm shooters who do not need an expensive f/2.8 option, there is the XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR lens. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f/4 R OIS WR lens. The 10-24mm f/4 comes with a range of features, including:

  • Four aspherical elements for less distortion and spherical aberrations and better sharpness
  • Four extra-low dispersion elements for less chromatic aberrations and better clarity 
  • Super EBC coating for less flares and ghosting and deeper contrast
  • Stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus suitable for both photos and video
  • Rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Locking aperture ring
  • Optical image stabilization providing up to 3.5 stops of compensation
  • Weather-resistant design

While the corner sharpness of this lens might not be the greatest, it remains a versatile and convenient performer. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.

One of my favourite lenses, I wish all the people who are now slating it because the 4 most unimportant parts of the image are not as sharp as the important bit would actually go out and use the lens for themselves before forming negative opinions based on test charts. A good portion of my best images are with the lens.

I would also hope people realize there is much more to lens performance than corner sharpness. Having come from a 42mp sensor with bitingly sharp glass to a 26mp sensor with perceptible, but superficial, differences in image quality, I'm not leaving Fuji anytime soon. The cameras and lenses are clearly made by people that love to shoot.

Gotta please those gearheads though Gary, test chart photographers... not a clue how to actually shoot.

This is an example of a shot I took with it, its as sharp as a tack, and I took this in the rain with the none WR.

Great shot! Just as an aside, no one ever thinks to themself while shooting, "I wonder what this would look like on a GFX 100 with an equivalent field of view" - and if they did, what a miserable existence, ahahah. Image quality is 99% what is in front of your camera.

Hahahahaha brilliant, this is my number one argument to equivalence trolls, who the hell stands there and says ‘hmmmm the background would be a bit more blurry if I was using an 85mm on full frame’ whilst in the moment capturing a shot.

I never understood the bandwagon with slamming lenses just because they are f4. They're cheaper, just as sharp, and a heck of a lot lighter than their wider aperture counterparts. I have a 70-200mm f2.8 from Nikon but I almost never shoot wider than f4.

haha my '4 most unimportant parts' was referring to each corner, but some to think of it, I fully agree with that part too:) all about the 4s and how irrelevant they are.
