Fuji Guys FUJINON XF 200mm f2 and XF 8-16mm f2.8 – First Look

The Fuji Guys take a look at the brand new Fujinon XF200mmF2 OIS R WR and Fujinon XF8-16mmF1.8 R WR.

Fujinon X 200mmF2 R WR

  • weather sealed at 17 places
  • barrel made of magnesium allow, outside made of aluminium
  • new 1.4x TC brings it to 427mmF2.8 (35 equiv.), so when you buy the 200mm (which comes bundled with the 1.4x TC) you basically get 2 lenses
  • OIS 5 stops of stabilization. And with X-H1 it will be stabilized in 5 axis
  • 1.8 meters minimum focus distance
  • silver color for heat dissipation and hence better image quality (but FR readers already know this since March :) )
  • You can go to from horizontal to vertical without having to turn the camera itself
  • & more

Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 R WR

  • rectilinear wide-angle lens (no fisheye)
  • Nano GI coating
  • Stunning quality
  • 25 cm minimum focus distance
  • perfect for landscape and architecture photography
  • & more

Are the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 Too Expensive (POLL)? + Pre Orders at AmazonUS

New Fujinon Lenses

If AmazonUS is your prefered online retailer, then I inform you that they are taking pre-orders on the brand new Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 here and Fujinon XF 200mm F2 here.

And regarding the new lenses, I am going through thousands of your comments in these past 3 days, and I can overall say:

  • most people are very satisfied with the new lenses on the roadmap
  • a good number of people think the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are too expensive

I don’t know if the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are really too expensive. What I know is that I am not one of those who thinks “it’s an APS-C lens, so it must be cheaper than equivalent FF lenses“.

And at the end of the day, the main deciding factor for the price of a lens is its image quality.

As they say, “you get what you pay for“.

And surely, the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 price is definitely higher than most of us would have hoped, but if the image quality matches or even exceeds the one of its Canon and Nikon top of the line sibilings, then we will get what we pay for: the very best glass that makes no compromises in image quality, for a high, but at the end of the day fair, price.

We will have to wait for some lab tests and comprehensive real life reviews, to see if the image quality of the latest Fujinon lenses justifies its price. But I am somehow confident they will… and the first hands on experiences shared in our live blogging sound very promising :) .

Anyway… what do you think? Vote the poll below.

Is the Price of the XF 8-16mm F2.8 and XF 200mm F2 too Expensive?

The Big Glass Comparison

Yesterday Fujifilm released the Fujinon XF200mm F2 OIS WR and Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR.

Now camerasize added the XF200mmF2 to their system (not yet the 8-16), and you can now start compare all the combos you like with it.

I decided to compare it to it’s full frame equivalent lenses:

The Fujinon XF 200mm F2 is the lightest and shortest of the bunch.

Down below a comparison to the second largest Fujinon lens, the Fujinon XF 100-400.
