Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 Review: “Sensational IQ in Frame Centre, but $2,000 is too Much”

Fujinon XF8-16mm

The Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 will ship at the end of November, and we have a few more reviews, unboxing and samples on the web.

The most comprehensive review has been shared by lenstip. Overall they think the lens price of $2,000 is not justified.

After the test I find the number of small slip-ups of this lens a bit too high so, I suppose, only lowering of price can help. Of course it doesn’t change the fact the Fujinon remains a very well-done and optically good lens.”

Here are their Pros and Cons:

Fujinon XF200mmF2 and XF 8-16mm F2.8 First Looks

New Fujinon Lenses

The Fujinon XF200mmF2 will be the next len to ship, followed by the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 one month later.

From my testings at Photokina, I can just say that the XF200mmF2 will be legendary lens for Fujifilm. But don’t believe me, and check out the first looks below ;).

Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 vs XF16mmF1.4 and XF200mmmF2 on Fujifilm X-T3

Fujinon XF8-16mm F2.8 & XF200mm F2

During my stay at photokina 2018, I had the priviledge to test out the Fujinon XF 8-16mmF2.8 as well as the XF 200mmF2.

I could not really put those lenses through its paces, since I could only test them out at Fuji’s touch & try corner, but even during my short flirt with them, they didn’t fail to impress me (I used them both on the Fujifilm X-T3).

Yes, the XF 8-16mmF2.8 and XF 200mmF2 are not a bargain, but as they say, “you get what you pay for“. Enough said ;) .

Reviews about the XF 8-16 and XF 200 are not easy to find on the web and we will have to wait for them to be available in October/November, to see more of them.

We did share a major roundup a few weeks ago here, and here are some tidbits, including a quick comparison between the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 and XF16mmF1.4, which is arguably one of the top three primes in Fujifim’s entire lens lineup.

In 2018 we will get the XF200mmF2 in October and the XF8-16mmF2.8 in November.

There is still not much about this lenses online, but down below is what he have so far.

The Complete X Series Guide Updated

We have already shared the dedicated Fujifilm X-T3 catalogue yesterday in our huge Fujifilm X-T3 live blogging.

Well, Fujifilm also updated their complete X series guide (30MB PDF), which includes the Fujifilm X-T3 as well as the gear announced back in July, hence the Fujifilm XF10 and the Fujinon XF8-16mmF2.8 and XF200mmF2.

A Coffe for FujiRumors?

The last 72 (sleepless) hours here on FR were arguably the most exciting I ever had. Despite all the rumors, the X-T3 didn’t fail to surprise me, and I hope you had as much fun as I had.

If you appreciated months of X-T3 rumor work, feel free to use our X-T3 affiliate links for your purchase. No extra costs for you and it will help me to cover the costs of this blog and the ones of my growing need for coffee. :)

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

FUJINON XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR Filter Holder System

Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 WR

If you have followed our recent XF 8-16 live blogging, you will not have missed Jonas Rask’s (beautiful) first look about it. In his review, Jonas writes about the XF 8-16mm F2.8:

“There’s no front filterthread. The lenshood is permanently fixed to the front of the lens like for example the Samyang 8mm fisheye. This means that for all you long-exposure landscape geeks, you will need to wait for your filtersystem manufacturer to provide a filter adapter. This is far from ideal, and to me it’s the single biggest flaw of this lens.

Supposedly not released until November, the wait for the 8-16mm f/2.8 to be released will give the filtersystem manufacturers some time to launch a filter holder system.”

Well, there are currently already working filter holder system options for the XF 8-16mm F2.8, as you can see from the screenshots above, taken from Mark Gilligan’s video shared at the Fujifilm’s global youtube channel here.

In this case it looks like a LEE Filters lens adapter ring filter holder, maybe the SW150 holder.

Fujifilm XF 8-16mm F2.8 at CameraSize and more XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8 Size Comparisons

Fujinon Size Comparisons

Camerasize just added the Fujinon XF 8-16mm F2.8 to their database. You can now compare it to all other Fujinon (and non) lenses.

I decided to compare it with the Fujinon XF 10-24mm F4.

I remind you that you can’t remove the lens hood on the XF 8-16mm F2.8, this is why you see it with lens hood at camerasize. And as FR-reader Panther says in the comments, “You don’t gain any size advantage by removing the lens hood, since the front elemt sticks out far anyway. It also helps protect the front element, so you can put it on a table front side down and the front element doesn’t touch the table.”

FR-reader Yoav (thanks), has continued to make several size comparisons of the new upcoming XF 16-80mm F4 and XF 16mm F2.8. I will share them all down below.
