The Fujifilm XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR offers an intriguing combination of an extremely wide focal length suitable for a lot of applications in tandem with weather resistance and a decent price, making it an option many photographers will be interested in. This fantastic video review takes a look at the new lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video review takes a look at the Fujifilm XF 8mm f/3.5 R WR lens. With an equivalent focal length of 12mm, the XF 8mm f/3.5 offers a particularly wide angle of view that should catch the attention of people like landscape and architectural photographers at a rather reasonable price ($799). It comes with a nice array of feature, including:

  • Three aspherical and two extra-low dispersion elements for reduced distortion and improved sharpness
  • Designed specifically for high-resolution 40-megapixel X-Trans sensors
  • Quick autofocus of up to 0.02 seconds
  • Small size at just over two inches (5 cm) long
  • Lightweight: 7.6 oz (215 g)
  • Dust- and weather-resistant construction

Altogether, the XF 8mm f/3.5 looks like a nice lens at a good price. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.
