No Compromises

The zoom uses leading-edge optical technology and lens coatings that draw on Fujifilm’s esteemed heritage in optical design. It has a construction of 17 elements in 12 groups, which includes three aspherical elements to reduce distortions and spherical aberrations, while three extra-low dispersion elements are also used to control chromatic aberrations and increase clarity.

Fujifilm's proprietary High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating (HT-EBC) is used to eliminate reflections and Nano GI coating is applied to control ghosting and flare caused by light bouncing around inside the lens.
In doing so, this cutting-edge technology improves the quality of light hitting the sensor, which increases overall image quality. The XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR also uses a rounded, nine-bladed aperture design to provide smooth and circular bokeh for outstanding subject separation.

No Restrictions

Together, these features mean this lens delivers the perfect balance of edge-to-edge sharpness, exceptional background blur, and true-to-life color in every part of its zoom range

Cover Every Angle

A standard zoom like the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR is anything but ‘standard’ in terms of the subjects it lets you cover without changing lenses. From wide angle to short telephoto, this is a small lens with huge scope. At 16mm, you can record every detail in big landscape scenes, towering architecture, or cramped interiors. Zoom in to 24mm or 35mm and you've got a perfect lens for groups, street, or documentary photos. And up around 50mm, you’re perfectly placed for portraits and close-ups. Of course, there’s every focal length between those settings to make use of, too.

Record Every Detail

All of the XF16-55mmF2.8 R LM WR’s versatility and image quality would be for nothing without great AF performance to back it up. This lens uses a high-speed linear motor that can focus as fast as 0.02 seconds,*1 so it’ll react to the moment just as fast as you do. Combine the fast AF with Fujifilm’s Face/Eye Detection AF technology for perfect portraits, or use it in Zone or Tracking mode on action subjects.

Ready for All Environments

Any professional standard zoom needs to be ready for adverse environments – and the XF16-55mmF2.8 won’t let you down. The WR in the lens’s name means it has a dust- and weather-resistant construction, letting you keep your eye on creating great images, whatever the climate.*2

Photographers' voices

  • It’s like all my favorite prime lenses in one

    I know that with this XF16-55mm at F2.8, I can do pretty much any job that I need to be doing. The Fujinon zoom lenses are so good that you could basically consider them as a series of prime lenses into one lens

  • Unbeatable

    Lens like this one is absolutely unbeatable in all of those situations where you can't move, maybe you don't want to disturb the subjects or maybe you can't really move because there are no space because there's a cliff.

    Gianluca Colla


  • An ally in many situations

    Not needing to change the lens often, allows me to try out several frames. This avoids wasting time getting the right focal distance and allows me to stay focused on the subject, which isn't always easy. A very good quality zoom remains an ally in many situations.
