Fujifilm Officially Recommends to Turn On OIS for Tripod Use on Fujinon XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 200mm F2

Best Friends: OIS and Tripod

We have all grown up with the idea (some call it “myth”), that we always should turn off OIS when working on a tripod.

Also Fuji X guru Rico Pfirstinger recommends this in his top rated Fuji X eBooks (at least the ones I have read).

And indeed, I feel like it’s still a good idea to switch off OIS. And in the comments Bob Cooley tells you why you should definitely switch it off for video.

But, looking at the owner’s manuals for all X and G mount lenses, I’ve noticed that Fujifilm officially recommends to keep OIS on, even when working on a tripod, on the following two lenses:

I guess many of you were (and hopefully still are or are going soon) on holidays in these weeks.

So maybe, between a jump into the refreshing water, a mountain hike and a whole day city exploring, you might have missed some of the articles we have shared in July.

Hence, for your convenience, here are the top 15 FujiRumors articles for July.

Personally, my travel is done already, as I have been to stunningly beautiful Croatia with that fanboy SonyAlphaRumors guy.

We will see if I can sneak in another trip into what remains of my summer break. If so, make sure to follow my Instagram to see where I am hanging around.

But even if I can’t travel, I live in a wonderful spot of this planet. Beauty is all around me, and my Fuji is always ready to capture it.

Oh… and my wife is starting out with photography this summer, so I can’t be more happy than this anyway :) #proudhusband

Enjoy your summer!

The Travel Trinity: Fujinon XF 16-80mmF4 vs XF 18-55mm vs XF 18-135mm Specs Comparison

The Travel Trinity

Two of the most popular and loved travel lens options for Fujifilm X shooters are the Fujinon XF18-55mm f/2.8-4 and XF 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6.

But there is one lens, that might rule them all: the just announced Fujinon XF 16-80mm f/4.

The XF16-80 sits nicely between the XF18-55 and XF18-135 in terms of size and price, but it stands out from the rest by offering 6 stops of OIS and a new feature, where the lens automatically detects if you are shooting on a tripod, and automatically adjust OIS accordingly.

Optically it’s all still to evaluate. But initial impressions as well as full size samples can be found in our live blogging.

In this post, we are going to just compare the mere specs of the travel trinity. So, if you want to compare filter size, weight, size, minimum focus distance and more, access this dedicated BHphoto specs comparison page.

Personally I am very happy with my XF18-135mm, which snapped my favorite image of 2018 and makes it hard for me to replace it with anything, unless the XF16-80 has some significant image quality advantage.

Time will tell how the XF16-80 stands up against the other zooms, and of course you’ll be the first to know, if you follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed, Youtube, Flipboard and Twitter.
