The Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens is a great all-rounder, offering a focal length equivalent to 24-84mm in 35mm format and with a constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the focal range. With this combination, myriad possibilities open up. Use this lens in street and documentary photography, capture beautiful portraits and food shots. It's so versatile. You’ll find yourself photographing a wide range of subjects with this one great lens – and enjoying the ease of zero lens switching.
A constant f/2.8 aperture makes the Fujifilm 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR lens a great performer in low light conditions, as it’s able to let lots of light into the camera. So not only can you create gorgeous shots in difficult lighting conditions, but you can also continue shooting handheld for longer as you’ll be able to maintain faster shutter speeds too. From gorgeous portraits to wider street shots that capture the atmosphere as the sun goes down, the Fuji 16-55mm lens delivers top quality images you will love.
If you want to play around with your photos to create beautiful bokeh that puts your subject in crisp focus while adding soft blurry surrounds, you’ll love the Fuji 16-55mm. Thanks to a rounded nine-blade diaphragm and the f/2.8 aperture available throughout the focal length range, smooth bokeh comes naturally. Simply adjust the aperture to create a depth of field as deep or shallow as you wish. Whether it’s a cute photo of your dog with just it’s nose in sharp focus or a single rose standing in focus against a broader garden setting, bring it to life with this lens.
The Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens features high-quality optics that ensure beautiful images that are crisp, detailed and vivid. Constructed of 17 elements in 12 groups, it incorporates three aspherical lens elements and three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements to produce razor sharp detail throughout the zoom range.
To ensure superior image colour, contrast and clarity, a special Nano GI (Gradient Index) anti-reflective coating is applied to the individual lens elements to minimise surface reflections, and unwanted ghosting and flare. Additionally, Fujifilm’s proven HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) has been applied to deliver the best possible image quality.
The Fuji 16-55mm lens features comprehensive 14-point weather sealing that makes it splash- and dust-proof. It’s also free-proof, which means it’s able to continue operating in temperatures as cold as negative-10-degrees Celsius. Whether you’re a professional photographer heading off into the Australian desert or an enthusiast off to the ski slopes of New Zealand, this is a fabulous lens to be taking with you.
Thanks to a Twin Linear Motor, the Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR lens offers reliably fast and accurate auto-focus, with focusing speeds as fast as 0.06 seconds. So even if you’re shooting fast moving subjects like wild animals, you’ll always be able to get the shot in vivid detail.

Yes, this lens does feature a metal focusing ring and dedicated aperture ring on the lens exterior, which is easy to find and use naturally. You’ll hear a click for each adjustment of the aperture ring, which is great for that extra confirmation on top of seeing the visual aperture adjustment.
No, this lens doesn’t feature a built-in image stabilisation system. However, considering this lens can operate at a constant f/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range, you’ll find that it is very fast and you can use sufficiently-fast shutter speeds so handheld shots won’t have motion blur.
