Fujifilm XF 8-16mm F2.8 R LM WRPros:

  • huge, solid, weather-sealed casing,
  • sensational image quality in the frame centre,
  • sensible image quality on the edge of the frame in the 12–16 mm range,
  • slight longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • silent and very fast autofocus.

Verdict from Lenstips, ” you deal here with a fast, ultra wide angle zoom instrument closed in a solid, weather-resistant casing, very difficult to design and produce. It is able to provide sensational image quality in the frame centreIf the producer adds just a piece of cloth instead of a solid case to a lens costing almost $2000 it’s really an exaggeration
